Two questions concerning scriptures from the Holy Bible. KJV

Is there any truth of a scripture that, when read will stop the blood from flowing from a wound? Also another scripture when read will stop the fire sting from a burn wound? Please give references.

Thank You.

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
The two cases you are citing - stopping blood flow or instant healing of burn - are cases of miracles. There are no passages of scripture, the reading of which can produce such miracles. But such miracles can happen and what is needed for that is deep faith. If a person believes strongly that reading a passage from the scripture can produce a miracle, that could happen depending on the strength of that faith. Often such miracles are accomplished by some mystics but most mystics do not wish to make a display of such powers, though they can.

How is it possible for humans to invent or conceptualise infinity without ever being able to experience it?

Discuss this question

Question found in Philosophy
Power of our imagination can conceptualize things that cannot be experienced. Imagine you are in an ocean. However far up you go, you do not reach a surface. It has no surface. However far down you go you never reach a bottom. It is fathomless. You go in any direction, you never reach a frontier. It is endless. Also imagine that our universe, vast as it is, is just a tiny bubble in this ocean. Thus you can conceptualize infinity.

What are limestone?

Discuss this question

Question found in Meteorology
Limestone is calcium carbonate. Most of the limestone we find are produced by aquatic life - corals, shell fish and the like. The limestone quarries we find on land occurs in places that were once under water. It is good to remember that before land appeared there were living things in the sea.
The shells of the mollusks as well as the coral made of calcium carbonate are formed from the calcium rich diet of these organisms even as our bones - mostly calcium phosphate - are formed from the calcium in our diet.

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
Taoism is the ancient form of religion of China. It has no founder or specific scriptures as it was there from pre-historic times. Tao or Dao means the way or the flow that signifies the dynamic state of life and of the universe.
Lao-tzu, a contemporary of Buddha and Confucius was the first one to write a learned work on Taoism. He summarizes the Tao concept of God in the following words. β€œIt is something formlessly fashioned, that existed before heaven and earth. Its name we do not know. Dao is the by name we give it. Were I forced to say to what class of things it belonged I should call it immense.”
In China even after the arrival of Buddhism people followed Taoism in the ascetic or spiritual level. It is common for a Chinese to practice Taoism, Confucianism as well as Buddhism at the same time at different level, for different ends – spiritual, Social or religious.

Who was Jesus Christ?

Discuss this question

Question found in Cultures In General
Historically Jesus was a person who lived 2000 years ago in Judea ruled by Rome. Islam teaches that Jesus was one of the prophets and the Holy Quran speaks of virgin birth of Jesus saying that Mary, mother of Jesus conceived by God's power and not by human act. To Christians the fact of virgin birth is enough to believe he is the Son of God.
According to the Bible and Christian faith Jesus is the Son of God who came to offer salvation to humanity by his supreme sacrifice of death on the cross.
The uniqueness of Jesus lies in the simplicity and the profundity of his teachings. His teachings in the Sermon on the Mount (Gospel of Mathew chapters 5, 6 and 7), is one of the greatest messages to humanity. This sermon tells us how we can make heaven on earth, how to establish kingdom of heaven. The means to this are simple - All we need are; selfless love, contentment or non attachment and absolute trust in God.

Why do we study mathematics?

Discuss this question

Question found in Maths
Different people study Maths for different purposes.
A common man needs maths for calculating the total price of things she bought and the change he should get (That was before the new machines that do the job now)
Accountants needs maths.
You cannot learn physics without maths. Most theories in cosmology and relativity are pure mathematics.

But the most important thing is that the skill in problem solving that our brain acquires by learning maths help us in solving our day-to-day problems in life.

Astrophysics deals with the physics of the universe. It includes the study of the temperature, density, pressure, chemical composition of various bodies like stars, planets, galaxies, etc. In the study of these things, there is a great requirement of knowledge of other subjects also. These subjects include thermodynamics for heat and temperature issues, electromagnetism for different properties of the bodies, statistics for the calculations and interpretations, and many other subjects.
