Not really. Plenty of benefits behind intermittent fasting. Your body isn't a sponge.

I fast from 5 or 6pm to 7am so I get good sleep, I'm not down to do anymore than that, not worth it currently.

Yeah, except intermittent fasting is supported by science as something with health benefits. Especially if you are facing digestive troubles.

But, at this point, I'm pretty sure the shit you believe has less to do with science and much more to do with whatever the fuck you want.

Fasting when you don't any problems or planned surgery is stupid is what I meant.

Any health benefits won't outweigh the hydrochloric acid that's building inside your stomach when you feel hungry.

Like I said, it's a stupid concept, but in the case of surgery you need it so food won't go into your lung. Just like anaesthesia is bad for you but you need it in surgery.

Just because you need it doesn't mean it's good for you.

I stand by my original statement, fasting is a stupid concept.

And, I stand by my original statement that you have no idea what you are talking about.

Intermittent fasting has also shown to increase longevity and help disease resistance.

Like I said, more of you believing whatever the fuck you want.

Whether you believe in science or God, our bodies are not optimized by having a constant supply of food.

Citing that article doesn't make it true.

I don't need you to tell me that, I will believe what I believe. If my stomach tells me I'm hungry I will eat, if my body says I'm sleepy i will sleep. Doing anything against what the body wants is unnatural and never healthy.

Why bring my atheism into a discussion that has nothing to do with religion or atheism?

My God. You are dense.

Also, I simply said regardless of what you believe, this is evident. In other words, it isn't because I have some other belief structure, but rather it is verified fact. It is one thing to have faith, and another to deny fact.

You really aren't worth arguing with.

If I'm not worth arguing with, then don't reply to my statements. If your spread your nonsense around my statement, then I would need to defend it with explanations.

You act like I say things that are not based on scientific reasoning to make it seem like your nonsense carries more weight.

Also I'm not the one acting mad and irrational throughout this encounter.

Denying scientific studies and choosing to believe something you instinctively believe, while discrediting others' faith IS irrationality. It's also hypocrisy and willful ignorance.

Excuse me?
Aren't you the one who denies evolution which has thousands of peer reviewed journals? And mountain pile of evidence?

That article you posted is very debatable, it's not definitive proof that fasting is better than eating a balanced diet.
Also the experiments for that article is lab animals... Lol? You think rats have the same physiology as humans?

I would rather look at actual evidence like Japanese people have the longest average lifespan in the world, and majority of them don't fast, it's not Muslims who have the longest lifespan.

But of course like the christian you are, you would put two fingers in your ears and shout lalalaala.

Anyway, this goes to show the hypocrisy of a christian, denying theories that conflict with your religion but accepting ones that support the buybull.

There are other studies that show the same thing, if you cared to understand.

It isn't that you deny the factual, but that you are hypocritical about it, demonizing others who do the same.

Also, I've never denied the theory of evolution. In fact, all I have said is that I do not know and neither do you. Evolution is still a theory. And that scientifically speaking, evolution is one of the most flimsy theories that exist.

So, my point was never to deny anything, but to rather present the whole picture.... which is to say, in reality, the whole picture is too small to make absolute assertions about the existence or non-existence of God.

In other words, my only goal was to point out to you that even accounting for all of science, even if you understood every bit of it, your decision to disbelieve is still faith based.

And I stand by that.

As I said in the very thread you speak about, I don't pretend to know all the implications of science in regards to God, but I do accept that I don't understand everything, or even enough, and neither does anyone else. All I know is that I have faith in God, and using science to disprove or prove God is idiotic and pointless.
