Re: Aquinas five ways

Yes, educate ACB, let him ask for clarifications. It's just that Rick is annoyed that he keeps stating falsely as to exactly what Aquinas argument actually said. So, let's first gain proper understandings of the actual argument as orininally put forth.

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.

Re: The lot is cast into the lap,..........

BigHamster: I think those under the law are controlled by sins, desires and/or external conditions (ie. not much room there for 'free will' Where our will is free first comes from, is being made in God's Image - as He is a Being with free will. But our free will is limited to choices within the one...

Re: The lot is cast into the lap,..........

"'Free will' is the function of the Master within us. Our will is the supremacy of one desire over another." -Mr G. It depends upon what is meant by "the Master within us" - does that mean we can only do as God wills us to do, or does it merely mean that God has given humans an ...

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.

Re: The lot is cast into the lap,..........

"Free will carried many a soul to hell, but never a soul to heaven." Rather, you might want to look across the entirety of Scripture rather than to cherrypick some man's Calvinist distortions of it. As rephrased, per Calvinist logic: There is NO free will but GOD'S that has anything to do...

Re: Prayers about work

Rick to K: Welcome to my world. I'm still trying to figure out what I wanna do when (if) I grow up! I'm in much the same boat, as you guys - and not quite as young as either. Wife's company is rapidly killing off U.S. programming jobs - shipping them to India, etc. So, we're in the same boat. I'll ...

Blessed: I've asked God for help but all he does is send me rubbish women who are totally beneath me Stop right there - I can guarantee you God is not sending you women - of any background - that He considers bad for you, in any way.

Re: Broken wrist

Great news about your son, Mel - amazing how fast youth can heal. Us older ones - we fall down and wonder how it's gonna feel in a year or two (more?). Also, sounds like you are really pushing yourself, staying positive With my horrific illness of 25 years ago, I quickly learned some hard lessons. O...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Truly: I would never have posted anything at all, if I hadn't seen your thread about the extraordinary scientific proof that proved the existence of God. So, are you suggesting that I post only non-scientific, metaphysical and philosophical mumbo-jumbo, or go elsewhere? Of course not - many Christi...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Truly: Since we are the only species among the millions of other species that can even conceive of a God, I'd say that nature would not be considered Godly. I haven't the foggiest as to what that statement means? Truly: I can't explain how life wasn't designed(which would assume that it was), anymo...
