  • that is proof that the sun will run out. because it has been decreed to run out at an appointed time.

    No, that is your faith that the sun will run out. If it were proof, it would be a fact. If it were a fact, you would no longer have belief. Faith is belief of something with ABSENCE of proof - by definition, if you had proof it would become a fact and you would immediately lose your faith. You have facts that there is a table in front of you. You have belief that if you put something on the table it will not collapse. You do not have faith that there is a table.

    Well they are still researching, but you must admit without science we would not have all the cures and medical advancements we ahve. Prayer couldn't have accomplished as much as science has
