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: 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

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.

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 ...

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: 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: Anyone here like to surf?

Around here, usually someone uses the term "dude" whenever they're irritated or being dismissive of someone. I don't. Dude is like "bro" or "man". Surfer lingo. I truly hate "bro" as well! It typically sounds so impersonal and superficial. No worries homie.

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Actuality being that which brings things into existence, right? So why can’t there be more than one? Ah, so you don't know what actuality and potentiality are.
