Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

I mean, 'me' is who I am. If I change into something else, it's not me anymore. What responsibilty will that 'new me' have towards it's 'old me', regarding that previous life? It's like a fresh start in a new existence, the old one discarded and forgotten. An eternity in paradise as... what? What r...

Re: Who is John the Elder?

Well, you can go a step further really. See, nowhere does the GOJ state WHO the beloved disciple was BUT only one person is mentioned in the GOJ as the one that Jesus loves and that is Lazarus. This has made some conclude that the GOJ was passed on by Lazarus to the writer of the GOJ ( which could ...

A letter to an anti-nationalist pastor

Found this letter from a Christian to his Canadian born nationalized pastor: I was moved to provide some response to this Sunday's sermon on America, patriotism, and nationalism. I'll just go through the line items: The referenced survey of pastors was based on perceptions of the pastors, of congreg...

JustHuman: Am I wrong that God's kingdom doesn't last forever? That all the saved souls will 'end' sometime? Truly, truly die? Absolutely wrong!

As far as I can tell most progressives agree with the views in that clip. I certainly do.


There is a very vocal and demonstrative group that most certainly don't.

Aha! Trying to trap me with a trick question, I see! As an evilutionist, you believe humans are primates. You can't get me that easily!!! LMAO ! No, nothing so subversive since I made it clear earlier that what other species do or is "natural to them", means nothing for the human species....

It seems that homosexuality does occur amongst domesticated sheep: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexual_behavior_in_animals . I can't verify that though! The issue is determination. When two male chimps ( since activities like this have been observed and reported) sexual stimulate each other,...

Re: Are My Actions Determined?

There is really no such thing as homosexual, bisexual, heterosexual or the like. These are terms invented by humans and ascribe certain exhibited behaviour.
