Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

JustHuman: Like the materialistic pop-metaphysic problem "where did all the material come from?" Of which the theistic counterpart is "where did God come from?" I don't believe you are getting it. Let's drop the "where the universe's source or God came from" question, ...

Re: The Left Coast Eco Freaks

LA has a set of geological features and weather patterns that seem to make the perfect storm for persistent smog. To be fair - all the joking about CA environmental whacko jokes aside - the terrain and forces of the surrounding mountain ranges, they stack the deck against certain parts of CA - part...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Re: Aaron Hernandez Suicide

Whatever the case, of Hernandez' last moments, he clearly was sending a message about John 3:16. I hope he truly embraced it - even as he was in such mental anguish so as to not be able to face continued living. Like the thief on the cross - there's always hope in the Lord. But we'll never know what...

Re: FoxNews: Billy Boy's Gone!

Dunno. What I do know is that if you hold a strong hand with truth in it, you shouldn't fear mere allegations. You don't pay out millions for false, unprovable assertions. And even if the assertions are mostly false, and the one being accused has a provable and questionable immoral history - so emba...

Re: Did All Humans Come From Adam & Eve?

That Heiser quote is 9 years old. But what he's saying is that the expertise of both Ross and Geisler are not as text, language and ANE culture knowledgeable as he is. But they are more so in their on respective fields: science / philosophy of theology. The language can really matter, because nuance...

Re: FoxNews: Billy Boy's Gone!

I will say this last lady, "Hot Chocolate," her claims sounds pretty lame. Clearly, someone put her up to complaining - after so long after the fact. But the rest - he's probably guilty. The younger Murdocks realize that that FoxNews will always be defending O'Reilly over these past payoff...

Re: FoxNews: Billy Boy's Gone!

JButler: Never liked O'Reilly's style of interrupting and talking over guests. Most of the time I wondered why he even invited a guest on the show. Hanity does the same stuff - so annoying. Being aggressive and louder doesn't make your assertions any more true. But to be balanced, I see people of a...

Re: FoxNews: Billy Boy's Gone!

Bill exposed a lot of good things. But, as for him as a person, he is egotistical and very arrogant. And with so many women coming forward - remember, these people worked for a company in which most were more conservative - so, you can't just say these were liberal plants. And you don't just pay out...

Re: "If you were born elsewhere, you wouldn't be a Christian..."

Technically, the term, "Universalism," is typically referred to by Christian theologians with a meaning that God will save everyone who ever lives - without qualification . But Paul's personal definition is correct: It's a club membership everyone could freely join, but only those with a c...

Re: "If you were born elsewhere, you wouldn't be a Christian..."

Paul: I agree that God already knows who are His. That isn't, of course, the same as God deciding who is saved before they are even born. Absolutely, an enormous difference between those things. Redundantly: There is no before and after decisions with God. He always knows all of His decisions, due ...
