Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

...limited to the metaphysical or the make-believe... To equate metaphysics with make-believe (may or may not be your intention but that's how I read it) is to equate cosmology with astrology. FYI, philosophy in general (and metaphysics in particular) is the bedrock of logic and reason, without whi...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

So, why does ice freeze a below zero instead of turning into a flower or catching fire? Why does a seed from an oak produce an oak instead of a pine? instead of rock? Why do two humans reproducing, produce a human and not a ape or a goat? Why do hurricanes happen around the same time? everywhere? a...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

I maintain that in a fine tuned-intelligent designed universe, the Andromeda should never be on a collision course with us. Perhaps there should not be any type of galaxy formation at all then. While we're at it, why should we even look beyond our own backyard, we should question a designed univers...

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. It is going to. Just a matter of time. neo-x wrote: A fine-tuned, intelligence-based, designed, universe should never do tha...

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 ...
