Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

This is suppose to be in relation to unbearable mental illness... I think that was addressed quite early that if a patient is terminal, that is one thing BUT if the patient is NOT terminal that euthanasia is wrong. It is a very emotional situation of course, but what is "unbearable"? The ...

So you disagree with what Paul wrote and that the Gospel of John says?




No.

But what Paul and John wrote is NOT what the LDS believe or preach.

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

Understood, but WHY? The view of a believer is that because life comes from God, He creates it and sustains it. But as an atheist, what do you base that on? The values you have been taught by society? As a non believer, I value life because of what I am able to do while alive. Once my life is gone,...

Re: Global warming - Latest study

Keep it up, fellas. If you nit-pick hard enough you can change reality... The reality, in this case, is that the climate models were off, which is what so many have been saying. Note what I said in the beginning: ...that the RATE of global warming is far less and that, as many skeptics have stated ...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

I would agree, but sometimes it's not a clear line in certain situations. How so? For one, I'd say it can be a fine line between giving enough medication to relieve pain, and giving too much of certain meds that hasten death. Morphine is one such drug, which I was told by my dad's hospice nurse, ca...

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: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

Rick, I'd say the line is pretty much indistinguishable, even with much knowledge and experience in light, moderate and heavy sedation... But the point remains? Especially if we are talking about IV vs oral. I've done both (helped my great aunt pass, too and it was oral morphine). And taking oral m...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

I guess the dividing line, and its kind of a clear one, would be: Allowing someone to die, as painless as possible, is OK. Killing them is not. I would agree, but sometimes it's not a clear line in certain situations. How so? For one, I'd say it can be a fine line between giving enough medication t...

Re: Just some opinions on so-called "Christian Numerology"

The bible explicitly teaches AGAINST trying to predict the future. Deuteronomy 18:10b-12a “anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, 12 for whoever does these things is an abominatio...

Global warming - Latest study

It seems that another study has come out proving (?) that the RATE of global warming is far less and that, as many skeptics have stated over and over, the models overestimated. https://www.thegwpf.com/we-we-wrong-climate-scientists-concede/ An exert: The study, published in the prestigious journal N...
