Re: Morality

Where do you draw the line? I draw the line at something that helps evil - and particularly a life and death issue, where evil people will cause physical harm or even death, if you accommodate it. Or, is there a reasonable law that is being broken, and you are quizzed what you know of it? If so, th...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

TrulyE: The fine-tuning argument, the probability argument, the complexity argument, and the coding argument have all been easily debunked by science and logic. Then why have many scientists - those qualified in disciplines relevant - disagreed, as they insist that what exists and how it came to IS...

Re: Morality

Imagine you lived in Nazi controlled Germany in 1942, and the Gestapo asked you if you knew of any Jews hiding, and you knew the family next door were hiding a jewish family in their basement, I would consider you a contributor to evil if you were to tell the Gestapo the truth. If you lied to them,...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

Truly: All you have demonstrated here is that some Atheist believe that there is no such thing as a God, or that no God(s) exist.


ALL atheists believe no God or gods exist - not merely SOME. If you believe, even a little bit, that there MIGHT be a God or gods, then you are agnostic.

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

TrulyE: Please re-read your own paragraph, and explain just how Atheism is portrayed. While individual atheists are unique, their atheism has certain unavoidable realities for all of them. When I talk of sin, I am referencing a belief, that if a reality, means right and wrong has no ultimate measure...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

Don: It is also amusing that grown adults would dedicate their lives to pious servitude, because of an ancient foreign man-made, man-compiled(Emperor Constantine), man-written, man-contracted(Emperor Constantine), and man-edited book, written to consolidate all the religions in the region, and cont...

Re: Hypocrisy

Ed: A few bad actors on the left demonized the police in general, and then a few bad actors in the world of conservative punditry used that to demonize everyone who tried to call attention to police misconduct. Most Americans respect the police, regardless of where they fall on the political spectr...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

Rick: Philip's entire original post is scientific evidence. You can decide for yourself, if you choose to believe that the evidence points to God. Or you can believe that the many, individually astounding things on that list just appeared by pure, random chance, without any intelligence necessary -...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

TrulyE: There is also no indirect, physical, observable, measurable, or direct evidence to suggest that a who, or a what, was involved in its creation. Of course we do, because what immediately came into existence and how those first amazing things functioned require an intelligent designer - as ju...

Re: My Dad

Annette, I wish I knew what to say to ease your pain. Please don't medicate yourself - that's not going to solve anything. Actually, it won't make anything go away, either. The devil wants you to think that these crutches are the solution - and you know they aren't. With our loved ones, we are to do...

Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

Nils: However, you and I have no evidence whatsoever of how universes are created, that's metaphysical or theological speculation.


Oh, I have an idea, alright. But in the second part of your statement above, you have correctly identified where the answers lie.

Re: Transgender assaulting 10-year-old girl in bathroom

Why shouldn't we expect that many of the transgender aren't well psychologically, might be prone to whatever actions? People are born with a certain body, and yet they come to the conclusion their mind is of an opposite gender as their body? And so convinced of this, they are willing to have themsel...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

What we know about the world, that can be measured and confirmed - its complex mysteries - are mostly and only revealable by science. But the scientific method can only measure physical things and their reactions, so without tools to measure beyond the physical, we are then into the METAphysical - t...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

TrulyE: Finally, your continued chanting of creationist dogma as mantras for absolute truth, only demonstrates a new level of intellectual dishonesty and avoidance. Ah, but only if what I assert is not true is it dishonest. And you have massive problems of explaining what came into existence, if no...

Re: Hypocrisy

Ed: So yeah, I agree that it's a bad idea to paint with too broad a brush, and I try very hard not to. I have never condemned Christians in general. I don't believe that Christians are all good, all bad, or all anything else. We're talking about 3 billion people here. B.W.: I am sure that not all a...
