Question: God gave us free will....you say he was stupid for doing so...for you look to force others to refrain from their free speech! Censoring them any way you can.... ..did Jesus Christ use this tactic in his ministry? Nope....in fact he took every opportunity to get people to open up about their beliefs so that he may engage them with his unique method of preaching...... never did he use the hatred some of you display in your answers in this forum. ( you may want to read Titus 2:1-8) The next time you answer someone... try to answer with a view to Titus 3:2 " "Speak injuriously of no one...do not be belligerent, but do be reasonable, exhibiting mildness toward all" @Fireball.....you respect views if others show respect? Jesus put no such restrictions on his love...he showed love regardless of treatment he received.... I accused no one in particular, if you take offense you are the one accusing yourself....see Peters response he took no offense. @Raphael...I understand atheists not applying scriptural guidelines though. @Mo, TWOCGS and CHICAGO BOB.......I did not question God....please reread. @ PETER....short and sweet response....thank you @ JOE....You have a lot you need answered....I hope you asked with a view to getting a reasonable reply...and I don't have room here to do so. I will touch on a few points though...... .....God did not make man in his image in the sense of physical looks rather he endowed us with his "traits" albeit to a lesser degree of course. ....when the bible speaks of Gods "regrets" it does not mean he erred then changed his ways....the Hebrew language means it in the sense He felt bad that something occured, the case of the flood you cite....God was sorry that man had sunk to such lows...and in all the earth those 8 souls may HAVE been the only righteous ones. As to other responses....I would ask that you follow me...and see if my answers to others could reflect some of what I am talking about....and feel free to challenge me on them. (so you know what perspective my viewpoints are...I currently study with Jehovahs Witnesses)

Yes, we should be ready to defend our faith with gentleness and respect. No, God is not an idiot.

@Joe has asked a very good question about Gen 1:26, "“Let us+ make man in our image,+ according to our likeness." Then God created Adam & Eve, our first parents. You know the story in Gen 3. Mankind forfeited his right to live in his paradise home, his relationship with God and life itself. The result to Adam's children is as we see today. The Bible tells us this about our condition. "...through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin,+ and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned."__Romans 5:12. Death is what we inherited from Adam. It is like an incurable disease. And from the time we are borne we start the dying process. This is NOT the way God wanted us to be. His purpose for the human family will be realized in our future. God never lies. He cannot lie ( Titus 1:2; Numbers 23:19 ) By means of the obedient “Son of God” , Jesus the Christ, the way was opened up whereby descendants of the disobedient “first man Adam” could regain Paradise and everlasting life. “For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.”—Joh 3:16, 18; Ro 6:23; 1Co 15:22, 45, 47. Space for a complete statement is unavailable here. But let me point to a time in our future when mankind will again be in a father son (one on one) relationship with God again. Look at this verse in Revelation 21. "Anyone conquering will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be my son.". Imagine. Being a son of God again, like Adam before the rebellion. What kind of a world will mankind live in then and can you be one living then? The answer to the second point is YES! And the kind of world? No crime, corruption or bad government. No national boundaries, no war. Perfect health (no disease or missing limbs, teeth or hair, ears or eyes). Plenty of meaningful and challenging work (that is part of way God made us) No hunger. And best of all, your wife will have a perfect husband. ( I just had to throw that in.) Is this actually promised in the Bible? Just a few verses before in Rev 21:3-5, "With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them.+ 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,+ and death will be no more,+ neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.” Here is one small article about Paradise you might enjoy reading. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/20108...

What I don't get is that God is supposed to have made us in his image. Now do we take that literally? Why would he want to look like us. We are adapted to our environment. We have organs for reproduction, organs to digest food, organs to breath etc. Why would God want all of those? Or do we take it as being like us in how we think & behave? If so would God have eaten of the fruits of the forbidden trees in the garden of Eden? Maybe he did? Maybe he ate from both of them? Maybe that's how he came to be God in the first place? Does God make mistakes? The Bible would suggest he does. Why wipe out all of mankind except for Noah in the flood when he could just as easily have wiped out just the bad people like he wiped out the first born Egyptians before the Exodus, or like he wiped out the cities of Soddem & Gomorrah? Why promise never to do a flood again? Did he regret doing it the first time? Did he think whoops, I over-reacted, I didn't really think that through? Giving us free will, but condemning us to eternity in hell isn't really giving us free will at all. God said love your neighbour as yourself, but if God says that why doesn't he practise what he preaches? It's all very well saying mankind should love it's neighbour as itself, but why doesn't God lead by example? Why doesn't he love all the other Gods (Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Baal etc) as he loves himself? The other Gods are God's neighbours. He doesn't seem to make any effort to love them & live in unity with them. Those who have trouble loving their neighbours may be more in God's image than they think. Was God really a misogynist? Is he still? Did God approve of slavery? Does he still? Does God really hate Gays. Those poor buggers didn't choose their orientation, they only choose to deny or to face up to how he made them. Does God really give a damn if we wear clothing made of more than one fabric? You ask if God was an idiot? A yes to any of those questions may seem to point in that direction.

The two immature eggs are not able to become fetuses. In this case, you really had only 1 egg that has a chance of getting fertilized. In this cycle you are really, REALLY unlikely to have multiples. Your odds of getting pregnant still aren't super, probably about what a normal person's chances would be, somewhere around 1 in 4, so don't be too disappointed if it doesn't happen this month. I would call the nurse back, because the trigger shot is supposed to 'force' you to ovulate. Just because you don't usually ovulate until day 18 is irrelevant with the trigger. The trigger means YOU WILL OVULATE within 24 hours. good luck!
