so a person/animal will still live when all their blood is drained?
No, it won't. Likewise, a perosn will not live if the brain is removed. Does that mean "life is in the brain?"
I believe what Force is saying is that singling out blood as where life is, is scientifically inaccurate because the body requires many substances and features in order to work. Life is in the combination of everything, not in any one thing.
Oh, oh, oh! I know! I know! Teacher Peg, please pick me!
Your straw-man failed at the doorstep. Anyone can understand that if something bleeds too much, it is going to die. I highly doubt that any culture was ignorant to this fact. Naturally, lore would claim that blood is the life force of us.
Little did they know, that no one part of our system is truly the only part we need.
As has been aptly put, the lack of oxygen can lead to the death of a person, regardless of their blood volume. Here are a few others:
The removal of one's brain matter (or a significant enough portion of it) leads to one's death, regardless of their blood volume.
The removal of one's digestive tract leads to one's death, regardless of their blood volume.
The removal of one's liver leads to one's death, regardless of their blood volume.
The removal of one's spinal column can lead to one's death, regardless of their blood volume.
The removal of one's skeleton leads to one's death, regardless of their blood volume.
Do I really need to go on? Pack up the argument Peg, it has died from loss of blood ;)
Regardless of what one may think the "eye of the needle" is or means, it's impossible to enter the kingdom of God without repentance.
Jesus declared this in Luke 5:32,
"I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance."
Well, if Jesus never mentioned the eye of the needle, and it is written in the Gospels that he did, how do you know if any of it is even true? Kind of hard for him to mention the eye of the needle, when it didn't even exist.
And what happens when the blood stops getting thru to a particular organ or part of the body???
It stops receiving nutrients, oxygen, and water for it's affected cells. What happens to the blood if you don't have bone marrow? By your own logic bone marrow is the essence of life, as red blood cells could not continue to exist without it.
needles must have existed in some form...how else did they sew their clothes???
ROFL! HAHAHA! Man Peg, you have really got me rolling now. Are you honestly telling me you confused a parable Jesus gave in Luke about a Camel going through the "Eye of a needle" (a GATE) with a sewing needle? Where is your Biblical knowledge now? ROFL!
