Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

To Philip, considerations for a non-pop universe... Something cannot come from nothing. Something does exist. So nothing must have been something. A bit more defined: Physicallity cannot come from nothing. Physicallity does exist. So nothing must have been physical too. Your syllogism fails because...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Mostly I try and choose what I write carefully, not writing something that just came to my mind, but this popped up: If one truth leads to so different and opposite conclusions, then why can't it be a bit or a mix of both? We are not living in a binary world, with only 0's and 1's. No, there are a ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Though... the real issue was me being irrational, which I still think I'm not. I' ll try and write some lenghty text about why... Maybe you can try to rationalize why you're not being irrational. :lol: Gonna work on this contradictio. Might take some time... Actually rationalizing not being irratio...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

A long time ago a friend once said, "If a question or answer is not understood, then the question or answer wasn't put right. Rephrase the question or answer." With other words, don't blame the 'receiver' for not understanding (unless he willingly is doing so). A privation is not a thing ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

I asked that you articulate why such is necessarily a contradiction in logical form in syllogistic form (i.e., If A then B, A therefore B), but you didn't. It isn't obvious to me that there is a contradiction, I don't see any. For, if it is God's will not to lie, then He is most certain free to exp...

Re: Belief in the Trinity

It's a loaded question and here is why: If Jesus is NOT God how can he save ? How can He forgive? How can He redeem ? OK, we know from John 17:3, that the Father is the one true God. Verse 5 says the Messiah was before the world began, so He must be eternal. The Word who is God was made flesh, but ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

... You are all over the place, you think you've thought this through but you haven't. You need to step back a bit and think about what you're saying. Let me ask you these two questions: Can total darkness illuminate? Can a bachelor be married? I don't know why you think I'm all over the place, can...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

I mean this: Not if God's will perfectly aligns with His own nature, the two are ultimately one and same. So God is free to express Himself, it's just that His expression aligns 1:1 with who He is. There is a contradiction in 'free to express Himself' and 'cannot lie'. Can God create us (lying) hum...

Re: wrath and anger

Psalm 2:12 says God can get wrathful in a moment, but we also know God is slow to anger. What do you make of this? We also know that God is changeless. We also know that that does not constitute a contradiction. In other words, it means that this kind of language is anthropomorphic. It is the only ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Come on! God 'incapable' of breaking his word? He is an omnipotent omniscient being. How can you know God wont do this or that or didn't lie (a little)? You may think so, but you cannot know . You keep asserting this but you are simply wrong. And how I know you are wrong is exactly how I know God c...

Re: On Original Sin - Romans 5:12-21

IMO, Paul is addressing how can one man save all that believe in Him? Well, IF you believe that because of one man all are in sin ( and those that Paul is addressing probably believed that or why we he have brought it up?) then you can believe that through one man, especially the Son of God, all ca...
