Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

JustHuman: Does the Bible realy state that God knows His own 'future'? God's own future would include ANY future thing HE ever does or says - this is why prophecies like those in Revelation are known to us - because GOD knows it. This is summed up in one of the names of God: "The Great I Am&quo...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

JustHuman: Also for an eternal being there is a passing of 'time', or 'events', or whatever they call it. God created our world (universe?) in six days, that means a sequential progress. However long one of those days may be. So, I conclude that God did one after the other. He might have foreseen e...

Re: News Alert: CNN is bias ! LOL !

So, is FoxNews or other conservative sources "sinless" in playing to their publics, per the marketing of stories that excite their listeners - often not. Fact is, everyone should call these issues as they truly are - meaning, be an equal-opportunity critic - including sources you normally ...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

JustHuman: I know how theists see God, but that doesn't mean I have too agree with it. Some things I can accept, other things not. Like the Knowing. The reality of the matter - whether there is a God of the Bible - does not depend upon one's opinions. If He exists as Scripture tells us, then the re...

Re: News Alert: CNN is bias ! LOL !

Rick: And there's the bias you can't see in yourself. You don't believe truth or facts, if you don't like the person saying it.

Re: Leftist Propaganda has intended consequences:Shooting

Ed: Phil this: "Sanders was talking about a high-level government job, not elected office" is an objective fact. It's the same issue, Ed! So, Bernie thinks no Christian should be qualified for a high-level government job? Based upon WHAT??? That is very dangerous - and no doubt, given the...

Re: Leftist Propaganda has intended consequences:Shooting

Ed: Nope, that's still a lie. Sanders was talking about a high-level government job, not elected office, and he didn't say jack about a litmus test. This is insincere, manufactured, political outrage. EVERYTHING in Ed's quote above is untrue and a denial of what Sanders actually said (look at the o...

Re: Chicagoland!

One thing that has been a seismic shift in the views of the U.S. masses concerning healthcare - and that is, that "it should be a right and EVERYONE should be FULLY covered." Particularly, the younger people are, the more people tend to see the issue like that. But something has to give - ...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

Paul: IF God exists ( and if you understand classic/real theism then you understand why He MUST) then such "a being" ( I say a being because He is not A being but IS being) is so far and above beyond our ability to comprehend FULLY that the best we can do is to try and understand SOME. Ye...

Re: Prayers please

Same here, Mel! Seems as if there is so much for this young man to deal with - unbearably so. Heartbreaking - but at least you know more of what you're dealing with. And sometimes, these things slowly begin to moderate as a young person matures, begins to see life from a bit different perspective. I...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

JustHuman: Well, it probably won't work, but I'm trying to rationalyze from a realistic point of view how things could work if God and His theistic universe would be true. Some things talked about here seem to me outdated, even unrealistic. At some points religion and it's science try to hold on an...

Re: Most Influential Person in History

The criteria the list was based upon is the IMPACT - whether good or bad - that each of these individuals had, per what the historical data has shown concerning their impact upon society and the world.

Most Influential Person in History

Stumbled across this list - Time Magazine put out a data-driven list of the "100 Most Significant Figures in History" - was both surprised and not surprised at the #1 most important one - with Napoleon coming in 2nd place: http://ideas.time.com/2013/12/10/whos-biggest-the-100-most-signific...
