Re: Prayers about work

Maybe I'll have more time for posts! :) So long as I can keep my house and like. Hana, you're often in my thoughts. I know you're in such a hard spot and I hate just saying words. Wish I could do something more for you to help. You are so strong, even if your mind is a mess at the moment. I pray thi...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

Remove talk of states. Without the physical, could consciousness be had? No, not if the mental supervenes upon the physical. Hence, the mental is produced by the physical ordering. Kurieuo, I don't understand what you are saying. We discuss a materialistic worldview and then there are only physical...

Re: Minister denies wedding

I agree with RickD, no one has the right to force anyone to render their services. Such is anti-libertarian in the worst slavish way. Stupid people will just lose business when people "shop" elsewhere. I don't watch the news in our country anymore, but I know their has been a bit of faker...

Prayers about work

Guys, seems like I'll soon have a big cut in income. Been in my own business a number of years, kind of got locked in to helping one big client with their Internet marketing. Was pretty full on and kept me busy, and it paid for a lot. Now it's going bye bye, so really in a month or so, income will e...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

A material worldview would say that the physical chemistry creates an emotional affect where "we" feel this "falling in love". Yet, it can't work the other way around with "falling in love" affecting the brain unless one accepts mental states aren't all derived from ph...

Re: Did Obama wiretap Trump?

Since CNN is reporting though, I'm inclined to think it now didn't happen. :P

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I'd like to note that "belief in the existence of God" is only a prerequistite to something much more important in Christianity and even Judaism. Much of Israel believed in God, and yet their hearts were far from Him. Believing in God's existence, just like believing in Christ's teachings ...

I must say, besides yourself checking in every so often, there is more nuts around here since all the women stopped posting.

I wouldn't worry too much. We already think B.W. is nuts, but we nonetheless accept him as a friend and he's a moderator here so... :P

Re: Any questions about JWs I will answer it

Just like similar numbers in Revelation 21:14-16 with the 12 Apostles of the Lamb being the foundations of the kingdom, which is 12,000 furlongs and the walls of which are 144 cubits. Clearly such numbers are symbolic of the whole kingdom rather than to be literally understood as x amount.

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...
