Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

God knows the future of... us. But does He also know His own future? Did you think of that question all on your own or did you borrow it from a less fortunate fella? Do tell, what do you exactly mean when you reference the "future" of an eternal IS? Whom would I have borrowed it from? Als...

Re: One thing I have against Trunp

Go ahead and disagree with his policies, I could not care less. But enough with the insults because you're not just insulting him, you are insulting every single person who voted for him and still would over crooked Hillary any day of the week. Crooked Hillary? Seriously? You're calling me out for ...

Re: One thing I have against Trunp

Do you really not grow weary of your own extreme leftist prejudice? I have. Actually I'm weary of a political environment where I'm called a leftist by people who don't seem to have a clear definition of the word. Sideshow Don wasn't really a conservative or a Republican until he won the election. ...

What are you talking about? The bombing in Manchester was perpetrated by a British-born, self-radicalized terrorist, not a refugee.

Re: What does 'having faith' mean to you?

It stopped being reasonable the moment you mentioned subjectivity. Nothing to add after that, I'm good. Thanks kenny. Fair enough. But It’s a shame you couldn’t get past “subjectivity”; if you had and actually read the rest of what I wrote, with a desire to understand what I was saying, perhaps you...

Re: Calling All Geeks: "How do I ... ?" Etc.

Glad you found the solution because I still don't know where in Win 10 that little menu was stuffed. I feel your pain having been in a bind so many times and the instructions on where/how to fix DO NOT match up with what I'm seeing on my PC.

Re: Shroud of Turin

Fair enough. If the Shroud was manufactured in the 14th century, it should indeed be possible to demonstrate how, and I agree that this has not been satisfactorily achieved. But that is quite a far cry from proof that it cannot be, and must say I deprecate the triumphalism of those who claim that b...

Re: What does 'having faith' mean to you?

And that one of Dawkins' favorite quotes that Ken used, i.e. "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence". One of the most meaningless phrases ever uttered, a self-refuting contradiction requiring an extraordinary amount of evidence to support. Why do you consider it a meaningles...
