Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

When someone choose the name " Trulyenlightened" ( an oxymoron and self-refuting title if ever there was one) and choose to engage Christians on a Christian website WITHOUT bothering to understand what TYPE of website it is, much less have any idea about what Christianity really is, it is ...

Re: My Dad

My Dad doesn't believe in God, and it is that, more than anything, breaks my heart. Guys.. tonight I am drinking, deliberately, to get drunk. I'm smoking, delibetately to get high. It says somewhere, I am the omega, the beginning and the end. God is, was, and always will be. God is eternal. Existen...

Re: Morality

Stealing is a fine example because in no culture and in no point of recorded history has stealing been viewed as good. That stealing is not good is not subjective because no one agrees that it is good, so we have at least ONE case of a SPECIFIC act that is objectively NOT GOOD. I think the problem ...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

Personally, the way many atheists think/describe/view god is so far removed from the classical theist view ( see Aquinas) that it doesn't surprise me that they see no rational reasonable way to believe in god. Other than simply editorializing, maybe you can compare or contrast the evidence(or lack ...

Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

If we can't trust or senses and our ability to reason it means that any statement is void, including the one that says you can't trust your senses or reasoning obviously. BUT we also know that there is more to the universe than what can be perceived solely by our senses. We can't see/hear/taste and...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

The text tells us the following about the Nephilim. - They appear to be the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men" - They were mighty men and men of renown - They appear to have had a life span of 120 years. You are reading into the text I am afraid. God doesn...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

This is a decent ( starting) definition: Metaphysics I, as a philosophy major who actually studies this stuff, will post a real definition for metaphysics since many definitions are [nonsense] for the most part. There are two kinds of metaphysics: -General metaphysics (universal) -Special metaphysic...

Re: Transgender assaulting 10-year-old girl in bathroom

It is a fact that there are higher incidents of sexual assault ( and suicide) by homosexuals and Transgender, though interms of homosexuals, it tends to be men and not women.
Which is consistent with people suffering from mental disorders.

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

My problem with all supernatural or metaphysical arguments, is that it would be much easier to simply state that we just don't know. Then to give the perception that we do. Don Enter "Brute facts", which are no explanation at all and the "god of the gaps" of non-believers. Metap...

Re: List of Amazing Scientific Evidences Why God MUST Exist

Welcome to Metaphysics. Welcome to the question of "why" over the question of "how". People ( skeptics typically) don't understand that when they make certain comments that can't be proven by (direct) observation ( Like an absolute negative comment such as "no such thing as ...
