Re: Why I am not an Atheist

how it is possible that the mind/soul detaches itself from the physical part and how it can endure in it's non-physical state. Given my previous post, some answers to this question should now be apparent, or show the question to be complex and so require some unpacking. If "matter" is con...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

Isn't it obvious? ;) If what we directly experience isn't formed by our brains, then such suggests this "seat of consciousness" which puts the fuller picture together of the world we experience is at least more than merely our brain. Furthermore, I wouldn't merely suggest but argue strong...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

@Kurieuo Will look into the videos later... Do you suggest that our thoughts (will, soul) reside somewhere outside our brain? In an immaterial, or other specific non-physical, 'space'? Isn't it obvious? ;) If what we directly experience isn't formed by our brains, then such suggests this "seat...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

JustHuman: Thoughts are not immaterial in the sense of the opposite to material stuff. Thoughts are virual, they do not reside anywhere else than whithin the neural patterns of our brain. So thoughts do not control anything, our brain does. To have thoughts, a brain must first exist. But if the bra...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

Besides that, I don't believe in any form of immaterial power that can create, or control, a material realm. I think you have that back-to-front. I'd point out we experience precisely that immediately and directly with ourselves, an exterion of our will over the natural and material realm. I'd have...

Re: Another Question for Atheists and Agnostics

Here's are some questions for the atheists and agnostics here: First the setup: Per what is written in Scripture, and assume for my question's sake that it is true - MANY people were recorded in the New Testament of having sat at Jesus feet and saw astounding, impossible things - miraculous things,...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

If it is man made then it MUST be subjective for obvious reasons. If it is man DISCOVERED ( sort of like man discovering the Pythagorean theory) then it can be objective ( like the aforementioned theory). At better thought, it's neither man-made nor man-discovered, but more mankind-evolved. Since m...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

Ok, good. Since you agree that "my truck is a Chevrolet", is an objective claim, would you agree that the claim, "God exists" is also an objective claim? Yes. K Ok, great. Would you then agree that a man raping an eight year old girl, is objectively wrong? Meaning, regardless of...
