Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

What Aquinas came up with is genius for making a philosophical point and yet so simple to understand and in the 13th century too.

Re: Prayers about work

Well,an update. Things are quite tough at the moment, Plan A is not working out as I'd hoped. I'm kind of at a crossroad in my life. Thankfully, I've got some savings, but I really don't know right now. I normally have a clear direction that I see to go in, but it seems that direction has just been...

Re: Loneliness

Blessed, There was a time back in the early 1990's, when I was lonely. I wanted to find the right girl to meet, and eventually marry. I prayed about it every night. And my prayer was for God to send the woman into my life that HE wanted for me. I conceded to God that He knew who was best for me, bet...

Designed to, by whom? So out of my entire post, you found one word("design"), to comment on. Even when cherry-picking a post, questioning semantics is a bit desperate by any standards. In hindsight I should have said "..just the way they were MEANT TO FUNCTION ". Clearly I won't...

That's why it's there. If I can only brighten someone's day just a little bit, or make someone laugh just a little, I accomplished something.

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

I never claimed to be intelligent, that is a claim that others make ABOUT you. But thank you for the insult. Maybe you would like to address, specifically, some of those ignorant things? Don I've read your posts. Clearly, you're an intelligent guy. Ignorant things are what I underlined in your quot...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

I can only give you my point of view, based on the evidence from physics, natural laws, and the existence of virtual particles. I don't know how science confirms Aquinas's argument, since it is a philosophical argument, not a scientific one. From a logical perspective, it is only an argument from i...
