Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I think you mean blind faith . We don't believe God is eternal because of blind faith. We believe God is eternal because of logic. See Aquinas' Five ways, for example. Yes, fate/faith, silly mistake, haven't seen that. Logic and truth are not necessarily the same. You cannot deduct truth from what ...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I think your boat is sailing past mine, had already sailed past some time ago. I'm not sure what you are disagreeing with. Also, I'm not sure I see what relevance "the Word of God" being spread by brute force or otherwise has to do with matters. Seems like handwaving away and a cliche you...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Sorry, but I still believe Atheists (especially those who take a positive position that God doesn't exist) are wilfully ignorant. I'd also include those weaker forms who simply do not acknowledge God. This wilful ignorance also extends to Atheists frequenting forums like this and I'd include yourse...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I think that we Christians need a whole new strategy when it comes to dealing with atheists.We do not need to try to convince atheists God is real to atheists but instead we should work on trying to teach atheists to go by evidence in order to get to the truth of any issue and that is how important...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

... So the dirty little truth is that even atheists believe and are forced to accept things that cannot be proven or seen,and yes it is faith,so cringe atheists because you possess faith far more than a Christian does because it does not require much faith to believe God can do miracles and create ...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Many who do not believe in God think themselves just being a good skeptic. Many such persons will often say there is no evidence or proof for God's existence, you may even come across such statements in discussions. Yet, I always immediately disagree with those who'd say there is no evidence for Go...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

Well... My original topic title "The meaning of immaterial life" might be wrong. Since 'meaning of' in a material universe is somewhat a contradiction. It should have better been "The purpose of immaterial life".

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

What is "meaning", and by that I mean an "ultimate meaning"? What properties does ultimate meaning have? Once one understands and/or agrees about what ultimate meaning is, then whether particular worldviews have it can be more easily discussed. I will say here, that it is largel...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

One aspect that keeps popping up is that according to some in a materialistic universe life has little or no meaning, or is useless. That in such a universe there cannot be love or empathy, for those are immaterial aspects of life. And since immaterial does not exist in a materialistic universe, lo...
