They witness the explosion on the news and Osborn states that since sheild is occupied it's the perfect time to do God's work: kill Spider-Man

ps: It is the comparing fictional characters

pss: do yourself a favor think before you post

there's so much more evidence that Spider-Man is real, than this god character. Several books and movie documentaries. For anyone to ignore this, they must live in la la land.

Why not say for X + X to = 4
then X must mean 2 and it makes the equation work.
Because, if religion were as rigid and definitive as simple math, we would not have the plurality of religion and charasmatic creatures each vying with the other for control of bank accounts.

Besides, no religion or religious scripture has ever been able to come up with an "X" to define God.

Hi Emily,

I think comparing the bible to the Spider-man comics is perfect. Both have several "stories" written by many different men, No one of our time has actually seen the main character in person. The ones that say they have, have only seen them, in their hearts. Both have movies depicting their amazing adventures. Both save lives. The difference, Spider-Man has never killed anyone, or asked someone else to kill in his name.

Your X + X = 4 equation description is flawed slightly. If we know X isn't 1 or 3, then the answer must be 2, this part of your example is correct. Where you seem to have faltered is, religion tells you that X is 5. No matter how many times someone tries to explain that 5 doesn't work, 5 doesn't make sense, religion tells them, "Just Believe". The answer is 5, on faith.

But, the answer is 2.
