Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

The universe is "stupendously fined-tuned parameters that collectively work together for life" Andromeda crashes with the Milky Way = End of life And yet it hasn't. A fine-tuned, intelligence-based, designed, universe should never do that ; Says who? And more importantly, why? That's a ri...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

Lol, ok Ed I'll play. Not really. The word "sensible" is completely subjective, so I still have no real idea what you mean by that. Subjective? Does that mean you believe there are some things truly objective? (or am I confusing you with kenny :esurprised: ). But you're right, what is sens...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

Ok, allow me to be more specific: The view is that if you reduce the availability of automatic weapons then deaths, mass deaths as the case in Vegas, by firearms, will be reduced. But that's exactly the myth gun control advocates want everyone to believe, except it is only a myth. You really think ...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

Yet you still miss the point. It's as if you're being deliberately obtuse. You are correct that there will always be violence, and that a determined killer will try something different if he can't get a gun. You're wrong that those facts mean that we shouldn't bother trying to prevent events like L...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

Yep. They're afraid that this time will be different, so they're trying to scapegoat bump stocks. Don't get me wrong - it's nuts that such a thing is legal - but if the guy had just had 12 unmodified semiautomatic rifles it would still have been a massacre. That's the smartest thing you've said. :m...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

One issue at a time Bylbos... The harsh reality is that you can NOT stop a person intent on killing. We can, however, reduce the means by which he can kill a large number of people ( which is no consolation for those that he does kill) and I think that it was the REASONABLE people are interested in...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

Anyone here in Canada can have a firearm. They simply have to apply for a license. Much like one has to for a car or to fish, heck even get married. The process involves taking a safety course and passing to make sure one understands the dangers of firearms. Rifles and shotguns can be owned with a ...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Not to sound mean but if you can't understand actuality and potentiality, then perhaps you shouldn't be commenting on Aquinas... Sigh.... Do you remember what I wrote a few days ago: " First, the background to my answer was that I asked Kurieuo: "So which are the reasons that are "ob...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Aquina doesn't mention "creation" but he mentions the first mover etc and the first movement occurred at the beginning of the universe, right? No, that's what I tried to tell you in my last post. It is a very common misconception of the first way, as Paul said, even the most learned philo...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I don't see any obvious arguments for the existence of God. Have you considered Aquinas' Five Ways ? No, I have not read or heard about Aquinas' Five Ways before but I checked your reference now. There are five arguments. The first about movement can be seen as equivalent to the first law of thermo...
