I am kind of an Agnostic. I don't know and can't know if there is a higher power.
Well, I'm Christian. (Lutheran, to be exact) I do believe that God can raise things from the dead. Lazarus and Jesus both did. I believe that God hears our prayers, and all the tragedy and miracles in our lives are just part of God's Plan for us. I do believe that Jesus will come back some day, and I am going to be prepared. (I'm eleven years old, and I have about 4 years until my first Confirmation. I'm so excited!!!!)
To Fang_Herp: That's why it's called a miracle. It isn't possible for us humans to raise a person from the dead, but what about Something or Someone who is much more powerful that we are - wouldn't that work? :)
The dead can be raised if we have even an ounce of faith!!!!
...raise the dead, but obviously (in my opinion) they were wrong. It isn't possible in any way. Again, this is all just my opinion. I'm sorry if I offended anyone's beliefs.
In response to Christiankid's question, no, I don't think it is possible to raise the dead. Purely because it is scientifically impossible. Other than the fact that when people's hearts stop you can resuscitate them, you cannot bring long dead people back to life. Take Jesus for example (apologies in advance to Christians). It isn't possible for him to have risen from the dead after being dead for two days. That could never have happened. And the ancient Egyptians. They thought they could...
I'm an Atheist/ Agnostic and I'm terribly sorry if I offended anyone because of it.
I would explain why, but I have 400+ invites in my inbox, sorry.
I agree with SummersHalfDone, However I also believe the "god" stole all the credit, being greedy, from the other gods. Such as Zeus, Ra, Odin, etc.
I believe in God :)
