Re: The meaning of immaterial life

What is "meaning", and by that I mean an "ultimate meaning"? What properties does ultimate meaning have? Once one understands and/or agrees about what ultimate meaning is, then whether particular worldviews have it can be more easily discussed. I will say here, that it is largel...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

So how would a non-religious/non-believer use it? Personally I don't think a non-believer should use it; IMO its one of those terms that should be reserved for those who believe. But you know people nowadays! Ken But you agreed that life is sacred, yes? I generally don't use the term "sacred&q...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

If as you said; anyone meeting God FOR REAL won't have any doubts, I suspect that is the answer to your question Ken Indeed, I think that is the case. BUT, that said, The God that I believe in ( as an example) isn't the type to "force" belief and that is something that I think many skepti...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

The problem with the video guy asking Dr Shearmer about evidence needed to acknowledge God, is that there is no way to know if the advanced being IS God. How would he know this being created the Universe? Because he said so? It could be an advanced space alien lying to him trying to convince him he...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

I am in Canada. Helping someone die without pain is one thing, killing them is another. I don't think that anyone has issues with allowing someone one to die and giving them meds to ease the pain and suffering. Meds that "speed" up the process may be a gray area I guess, for some. Killing ...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

What is the justification for life being sacred in a materialistic world view? People will have their own reasons for labeling something sacred; it will usually vary from person to person. Ken But certainly not non-religious people? I mean: sa·cred ˈsākrəd/Submit adjective connected with God (or th...

Re: The Ten Commandments

People are free to follow the Ten Commandments, if they so choose. Were the 10 Commandments given to all mankind? No, they were given to Israel and Israel was to be the "priest" to the world by leading by example. That was the covenant. Are people supposed to follow the Ten Commandments? ...

Re: Facts and truths about sex, with graphs !

Men understand foreplay as much as women TELL them about it, LOL. As for time, well, I guess it is more about what happens DURING that time than how long it lasts, right? 20 min of nothing ( or maybe just one) is not as good as 10 mins of multiples, right? 10min of multiples? y:-? hmmmmmm...
