Re: Aquinas five ways

Acb, Please stop posting in these threads. I'm not going to tell you again. Huh? Why can't he post. If he's wrong then tell him why but surely you don't just tell members to shut up and not post. What kind of boards are you running here? We are just getting rid of Mugabe we don't want another one.....

Re: Aquinas five ways

Nils, While I'm no Aquinas expert, I am familiar with the mistake many make with understanding his arguments. In your post above, you make the same error in understanding as many others. Particularly your premise #6 makes obvious the misunderstanding you have of Aquinas' argument. I'd recommend to y...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

K, what I think needs some simple bullet points, concern the professor's points about infinite regression and that all things contingent require a cause, and not the strawman assertions many pointlessly set out to refute. Feel free to do so then. I personally don't like leading a horse to water if ...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

I just ordered Feser's Five Proofs. :rockcool: Just don't become Catholic. :P I just now realized Feser is catholic. :pound: His book is Five Proofs For The Existence of God, not a Mary worshiping manual, right? :mrgreen: I will be ordering it and like I've explained before I'm good at picking out ...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

K, I really enjoyed that. There is a lot to digest in it - and so it would be great to sum up the professor's key ideas in simple-sentence paragraphs. Some key points in the video : ⋅ Feser was an Atheist philosophy of religion lecturer. ⋅ Feser thought he knew all about Aquinas...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

On the back of Byblos' comments re: many misunderstanding Aquinas... if you are truly open, honest and so on TrulyEnlightened, then I encourage you to watch the following discussion between Feser and Shapiro.

Re: Prayers about work

Thanks Nessa, RickD not so much. :P So thinking-thinking, in those few moments that passed since. Everyone's situation is different. But, for myself, my mind is currently thinking that the fact I see no real direction means that there actually is none right now. Which means just remaining still. I d...

Re: Prayers about work

Well,an update. Things are quite tough at the moment, Plan A is not working out as I'd hoped. I'm kind of at a crossroad in my life. Thankfully, I've got some savings, but I really don't know right now. I normally have a clear direction that I see to go in, but it seems that direction has just been ...

Re: Loneliness

Blessed, try looking for a woman in places that aren't casino or night life. If you're attracting the wrong people, then it's likely you're going to the wrong places and projecting the wrong image. For example, if you want to attract women by the size of your wallet, then well, that's the type of wo...

Re: Morality

⋅  Third, it remains to be seen how you are not transcending the natural order when you label behaviour, which is otherwise quite natural in terms of any other animal species, as not "good" or not "honourable" when it comes to human species. I am sorry, I am not certai...

Re: Morality

For example, if we take China's one child policy (now two), then it is good and honourable for a woman who gives birth to a child beyond their "child quota" to dash their baby against rocks. Or, should a society need to increase in number, then it is good and honourable for women to dedic...

Re: Morality

[*]Second, it seems to me you may be defining what is "good" or "honourable" by that which is "beneficial to society", or does what is "beneficial to family" take a higher priority? Nonetheless, I disagree. It does not seem to me when we call someone good or ...
