    Yeah, God must be pretty pleased with modern humans then, because he is striking us dead with deadly diseases FAR LESS than at any time in human history. And he is allowing us to live longer to boot!

    An honest Christian would say 'I can't; it's an article of faith." But so many like to dress up their belief in sciency-sounding nonsense. Why the need?

    Why pay any attention to what "some Christians" told you (or some of any group)? If some atheists tell you that Christianity is bunkum, would you then accept that?

    No I would ask them to explain themselves just as I am asking some Christians to explain why sin creates viruses.

    Oh my that’s so sad.

    Don’t fall for everything some Christians tell you.

    You know, I knew some people who believed that if you got sick (like a cold, or a flu), it was because you invited a demon into your body via living in sinful behavior, and that you had to pray for forgiveness and for god to drive away the evil demon that made you sick, and of course to change that sinful behavior that attracted that demon (whatever behavior or sinful thoughts they could find to blame).

    Of course, I didn't believe that when I was a Christian, and I thought that group was very superstitious.

    The process: Adam sinned and so death came into the world.
    That's all I can say.

    Why did you say that sin created the virus then? What correlation is there between a virus and sin in order for you to make that statement?

    If that is all you can say than you have an extremely limited ability to comprehend the nature of our physical existence as it is, and the rich diversity of cultures, religions, science, literature and philosophies of the history of humanity.

    Sin did not directly create a virus.
    Sin has impacted the good world originally created by God, where everything was functioning properly, to a world where things are not functioning properly.
    If the current virus is a result of gain to function research done in a lab, then this would be an example of humans tampering with God’s creation and really messing up.

    I suppose that what they meant was that sin opened the door to imperfection and because we are imperfect we became vulnerable to viruses, bacteria and many other things that wouldn't have caused us any harm had we been perfect.

    The case you talk about is really unknown. Until the truth is told, there is only going to be speculation.

    The More likely investigations have it starting 8 years before in a bat cave and bat poo harvesting for money with poorly protected workers, who became 6 very sick men, 3 of whom passed away and then on to the Wuhan laboratory. Then?

    Interestingly America is tied to that Wuhan Laboratory, they handed over the capacity to manipulate viruses to that Lab, that is scary stuff that needs to cease.

    However it started, the actions of men after it got hold, despite our abilities in medical science, has allowed it to become a global catastrophic event.

    The actions of many people since then likewise allow the spread.

    I understand you just made it up, strange thing to make up, but it is between your God and you.
