Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

Kenny's morality I'd expect is supported by a Christian moral ontology wherein God implants some understanding of moral rightness and wrongness within us. A main question is, what support is there to properly ground what he considers his own "subjective" morality (which as I see is actual...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

Yes Yes. K Ok, good. Since you agree that "my truck is a Chevrolet", is an objective claim, would you agree that the claim, "God exists" is also an objective claim? Yes. K Ok, great. Would you then agree that a man raping an eight year old girl, is objectively wrong? Meaning, re...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

I am not disagreeing with you Rick. There is no scriptural basis to get DNA manipulation from any passage. I was simply pointing out WHY you can't, because even if it happened ( not saying it did), the writers wouldn't be able to understand it as such. How do we know whether or not they would under...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

You will never get DNA manipulation from ANY test in the bible since such things were unheard of. BW's point is that,perhaps, what the writer understood as "bore" (since there was no other way to conceptualize it) was really genetic manipulation. Not to equate one thing with another but w...

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

What things are objective? If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody there to hear it, does it make a sound? Yes. When gravity pulls something to the surface of the Earth, the impact will cause an audible sound, and witnesses are not necessary for this to take place. that is an example of a...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

How did I come to this conclusion: In the spellings and grammar of the Hebrew word translated wife. woman used in the OT. The Strong's Number is H-802. This word is spelled so many different ways that one cannot read into its meaning as wife or wives in all cases it is used. this word is used in 26...

That's because he left something out. He should have said, "The most important work that most women do will be to raise their children well, and make sammiches."

Re: Key Questions for Atheists and Agnostics

Did you just ask Kenny, the king of "nothing is objective", if it's anecdotal? :lol: Ive never claimed nothing was objective, I've always said some things are objective, and some things are subjective. The disagreement I and many on this forum have had was based on what is objective or su...

rI2ew31oXTg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rI2ew31oXTg I personally feel that Shapiro is the most loving towards trans in being brutally honest, and sincerely wanting them to get help, to the point the trans beside him wants to beat the absolute $*** out of him. I saw that vid before. That guy wan...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

Here's an interesting article on the height of Goliath, the average heights of soldiers in ancient Israel. IF the average Joe was around 5.5 feet, a 7 foot fellow would have been considered huge. https://pursiful.com/2009/10/06/saul-and-goliath-the-tale-of-the-tape/ I have saw pictures of giant ske...
