Re: The meaning of immaterial life

Understood, but WHY? The view of a believer is that because life comes from God, He creates it and sustains it. But as an atheist, what do you base that on? The values you have been taught by society? As a non believer, I value life because of what I am able to do while alive. Once my life is gone,...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Indeed, I think that is the case. BUT, that said, The God that I believe in ( as an example) isn't the type to "force" belief and that is something that I think many skeptics forget. God doesn't need or require US to believe in Him, it is to our benefit that we do but God doesn't "ne...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

If as you said; anyone meeting God FOR REAL won't have any doubts, I suspect that is the answer to your question Ken Indeed, I think that is the case. BUT, that said, The God that I believe in ( as an example) isn't the type to "force" belief and that is something that I think many skepti...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

But you agreed that life is sacred, yes? I generally don't use the term "sacred" in casual conversation, but when discussing with people who do, I understand what it means to them. Ken Ah, understood, but do you agree? do you agree that life is sacred? To me sacred just means precious; or...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

So how would a non-religious/non-believer use it? Personally I don't think a non-believer should use it; IMO its one of those terms that should be reserved for those who believe. But you know people nowadays! Ken But you agreed that life is sacred, yes? I generally don't use the term "sacred&q...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

The problem with the video guy asking Dr Shearmer about evidence needed to acknowledge God, is that there is no way to know if the advanced being IS God. How would he know this being created the Universe? Because he said so? It could be an advanced space alien lying to him trying to convince him he...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

What is the justification for life being sacred in a materialistic world view? People will have their own reasons for labeling something sacred; it will usually vary from person to person. Ken But certainly not non-religious people? I mean: sa·cred ˈsākrəd/Submit adjective connected with God (or th...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

People have a long history of giving up their lives for others In our world. Prove it is materialistic. I cannot prove to your satisfaction. But hypothetically speaking; what is to prevent a person living in a materialist world from giving up their life from someone else? Ken Why the person would d...
