(we can not move mountains.)

I would disagree and say the reason we don't see people moving mountains is due to the extreme lack of faith.

in other words lack of people asking or even believing that mountains can be moved.

It's called mountaintop removal, and it's making the Appalachians in Eastern Kentucky disappear.

They cut off the top of the mountain to get to the coal buried underneath the stone, then they pour the waste material into the valleys. Eventually where there was a mountain and a valley, there is now a plain.

Please gawd, can I have a watermelon?
Pretty Please gawd? Watermelon?
Come on gawd, pretty please with cherries.... i would very much like a watermelon!
Damn I guess I just don't have enough faith.

Or, if your god does exist (which I don't believe, but let's just say for argument's sake), maybe he likes the mountains where he put them. After all, you believe he created the planet, right? Maybe he put the mountains where they are for a reason. Maybe he likes them exactly where they are. Maybe trying to move them only pisses him off.

Paul's right about disbelief in mountain moving. It's rather widespread. I don't know why.

Occam's Razor to the rescue!

No one is moving mountains because doing so takes really big diggers and dump trucks and no one wants to spend that much on gas.

I don't recall that even Jebus moved a mountain.

Wrong religion. Mohammed moved the mountain!

You ask God to make the coin come up heads and it comes up heads: a miracle! It comes up tails, you didn't have enough faith. Due to our lack of faith, the miracle only happens about 50% of the time.

Lets get 100 people to stare at a mountain and will it to move.

Would that be witchcraft?

More important... where would we put them if we did move them?

For what it's worth, plate tectonics moves, raises tilts mountains, just not very quickly.

You seem to believe you can move mountains; how many have you shifted lately?

Unfortunately, that question won't work on fundies because they have that pesky "don't put god to the test" clause. Which roughly translates to "Well of course I could, but you have to promise never to go and look".

Those godless commies the Soviet Union actually did move mountains back in the fifties! Ok, they used nukes and moved them into the atmosphere in the form of dust but still. Where is your faith now?

Faith is good, but a fulcrum would be better.

3/11/2008 2:17:34 PM


you show me a bunch of people that have faith that they can move a mountain and then do it and i will beleive you

3/11/2008 2:40:58 PM


Metaphor...You're doing it wrong!

3/11/2008 4:14:30 PM


So if you believe you can move a mountain, why don't you move a mountain on international television? Hmmmm?

3/11/2008 4:53:17 PM


and have you moved many Paul?

3/11/2008 4:57:14 PM


Can you say metaphor? Can you???

If faith were a power that allows for the altering of physical reality then God would have designed it so that only perfect minds would have that ability.

Problem is: No one is perfect.

(Except for me, but I guess you know that already.)

Ok, please move a mountain.

1/28/2009 12:40:52 PM

Move a molehill then - tell us when and where we can come and watch!!

1/28/2009 12:48:21 PM


If only you could agree which mountain to move!

I always read that bit of the Gospel as a metaphor. Silly me.
