    Out of the three, only Christ died for your sins for your eternal salvation, and out of the three, only Christ is alive today.

    That's easy, Jesus was there. John 8:12 "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

    Lions and tigers drank milk. They would have been babies don't you think? or they would have been eating Noah and company too. Not to mention the amount of room to house adult animals as apposed to babies and yearlings.

    Well, if you go by the various theologies, Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, is not dead but has reached nirvana, an eternal deathless state of enlightenment, and is still alive today. And I'm not well acquainted with Islam, but I betcha the prevailing belief there is that the Prophet is currently camping out in paradise.

    My point is, you can find the skeleton or the cremains of Muhammad and Buddah, but Jesus took his body with him, because he still needs it, because he's alive.

    That's a pretty cool incongruity, Doc. So there's this corporeal entity circulating in the heavenly realm, no ground to walk on, no doors to walk through, no bathrooms that need visiting, no food to eat - not even any other corporeal bodies (unless you subscribe to Catholicism or Orthodox and believe Mary's there too) to relate to. That's a vivid incongruity for the human imagination.

    You can try as hard as you like to apply your natural mind to the supernatural, but you're going to come up empty every time. The bible says you can't even understand the bible without faith. So why do you continue to try?
    The streets in heaven are paved with gold, so there are streets to walk on. The doors of the temple in heaven are giant pearls, so there are doors. People have eternal bodies, so there is no waste disposal necessary because there is no waste produced. There's a wedding feast in heaven so there is food to eat. On the mount of transfiguration Jesus was talking to Moses and Elias, so there are others in their bodies not to mention Abraham, Lazarus. Enoch and Elijah went to heaven in there bodies, so they still have thiers, except it's perfected and eternal. Mary was never mentioned. Jesus says His father's house has many rooms and he went to prepare a place for those who believe. The earth hangs out here in the middle of nowhere, why is it so hard to believe that the same God that created this, can do that? This is just the short list. There are no incongruities, just minds incapable of conceiving of a limitless God.

    Easy, sir. I wasn't try to enter a theological debate or question anyone's faith, although I'm happy to either challenge or evangelize in a more appropriate thread. That's why I didn't add to the Deluge comments. For this comment of mine, mixing the physical and the supernatural just presents an incongruity. If it's not to you, that's golden.

    Well, another incongruity to me is how we keep applying human qualities and likes and dislikes to a limitless creator. For instance, I rather perceive an incongruity that someone who made an entire universe in which our world is a blink of the smallest dust mote would be interested in adopting clamshell secretions (i.e., pearls) for home decorating (not to mention the other things in heaven). But that's just my own personal view, meant humorously.

    Sorry. Fibonacci was not in the neighborhood then.
