Re: Back to school

There are special gloves protecting hand from cutting. I know, since recently my husband bought me one, after I cut top of my finger half-ly out. I think we just have to use the right cutting techniques (mainly keeping fingertips out of the way). I just nicked myself a couple of times peeling an on...

Re: Back to school

Everyone, please refrain from women cooking jokes. And please don't ask why a woman Nicki's age, needs classes to cook, when she should already be proficient. Unmarried women don’t need to know how to cook good food. She probably has a new boyfriend so the cooking classes are to snare impress him. ...

If the best you can do in response to a statement is to insult the poster, attacking the person rather than the statement, that says more about you and your position than anything I could ever say
So can you explain what you mean exactly about the difference between true and real?

Re: Why aren't more women interested in...

I definitely have an interest but I'm only a beginner; I also don't have a very thick skin when it comes to online attacks, which men are maybe a bit tougher about. At least I don't get attacked here much.

Re: WLC and the moral argument

Ken, If you didn't say that Morality exists only in the mind, then I am sorry. I didn't mean to misrepresent your view. Yo use your examples and to make sure we are discussing the same thing in the same way: Morality: Objective - Stealing is wrong. Taking something that doesn't belong to you is wro...

Re: WLC and the moral argument

I watched a good video recently of William Lane Craig speaking on the case for Christian theism. He mentioned the difference between moral ontology and epistemology, which has been explained on here before in a way I found confusing - that epistemology refers to what is right and wrong, while ontol...

Re: WLC and the moral argument

Animals were created before and separate from people - read Genesis carefully. Do you not know anything about progressive creationism? Do I not know anything? Are you being sarcastic? As I said I don't necessarily believe in evolution myself; I'm still undecided about the creation method. I just th...

Re: WLC and the moral argument

OK, I just posted that and then a couple of minutes later turned on the TV news - this woman was talking about people separated from their tribes being in danger, leading to us being wired to feel anxious when we're alone. It was the usual thing about modern loneliness and encouraging people to conn...

Re: WLC and the moral argument

That basic morality is but a strategy for the good interactions of society breaks down when we consider that human nature is exceptionally selfish, and that those in power tend to not care what those they have power think or how they are hurt. Plus, the basics of right and wrong transcend to being ...

Re: Top Ten Myths of Bible Study by Dr. Mike Heiser

That sounds good. Having got into apologetics and Bible teaching videos recently I've got a few other ones I want to watch, but I'll try to get into some of those ones soon. I haven't checked the length of them but if they're under half an hour or so that would be good :)

Re: So, where's the global warming???

Well, we had a reeeally long summer in Western Australia. Still having to use the air-conditioning in late April is a bit much.

Personally,

I don't see much difference between the two interpretations.

:samen:
Indeed - I wouldn't be surprised if a few Bible translations put it as something more like 'do not let us fall'. I just looked up the New Living Translation and it says 'don't let us yield to temptation'.
