Re: Convinced yet?

Ed, he's also a legal analyst. Address what he actually says about hearsay and second-hand info that he says wouldn't hold up in court / a judge wouldn't allow - don't just paint him as a Trumpet. Has Jarrett ever criticised any of Trump's illegal or corrupt behavior? If not, then I would question ...

Re: Adam and Eve

Because although Adam and Eve didn't previously have knowledge of good and evil, they nonetheless DID know they were disobeying Him - which is obviously sin. Point being, their lack of having prior knowledge of good and evil didn't prevent them from sinning. Agreed... Going back to Paul's Romans 5:...

Re: Adam and Eve

DB, do you think that when Adam and Eve partook of the tree's forbidden fruit, that they realized it would be a sin / that they were in the process of sinning - given that they didn't yet know good from evil? They certainly knew they were disobeying God's command concerning the tree. And willful di...

Re: Adam and Eve

what about prehistoric times. Wouldn't there be any murders or is it just to dumb to question certain things? I hope its not dumb because I question things all the time :) The short and easy answer is we just can't know for sure. But I don't like short easy answers, so here are some of my thoughts....

Re: Creation of information

Actually I did... My whole post was a comment on the following Then going back to your interpretation. You write: "The newness is not a function of the input because even though the input is not known to the programmer, it represents a preexisting set of data that is not new. The 'newness' of the o...

Re: Convinced yet?

DBowling wrote: Withholding foreign aid to entice illegal foreign interference in an American election is bribery. Technically, wouldn't that be extortion, not bribery? I think both extortion and bribery are in play here. You are correct. Withholding the aid could qualify as extortion. Making the r...

Re: Convinced yet?

It's interesting what former UN Ambassador Nicki Haley said in a recent CBS interview: ""You're going to impeach a president for asking for a favor that didn't happen and -- and giving money and it wasn't withheld?" Haley told CBS News anchor Norah O'Donnell. "I don't know what you would impeach hi...

Re: Creation of information

The key is your first statement... "The tool (the program) and the input data create together the piece of information." So let's look at the role of each of the two components that you mention... 1. Starting with the input. The input that is fed to the program is not new and it doesn't do anything...

Re: Creation of information

We're getting closer... Yes, but still some way to go ..... The tool (the program) and the input data create together the piece of information. Correct... However The Input is not new information... it's just data that represents something... The program processes the data and represents that data ...

Re: Creation of information

You just chose to arbitrarily stop at the program execution, even though the program execution itself represents the algorithms and design of an intelligent mind. You think that the piece of information "LRRL" shall be traced backwards to processes that don't contain the information "LRRL". Absolut...

Re: Adam and Eve

One question reminds, since sin enter though them doesn't that mean all other humans around Adam and Eve were innocent or sinned has they did. We are guilty of sin because we sin. That is what Paul tells us in Romans 5:12 and Romans 3:23. An infant is incapable of "sinning" because they do not yet ...

Re: Creation of information

So when you trace this piece of information back to a source you have to stop at the program execution. Is this correct? Yes or No? No Because the computer algorithms and code that take the input and produce the information represent the thought processes of an intelligent mind. I don't understand ...

Re: Creation of information

Re #58 Again: If we take a piece of information created by the execution of the program, for instance "LRRL", this piece of information can not be found anywhere in the code and is not known by the programmer. Is this correct? Yes or No? Yes So when you trace this piece of information back to a sou...

Re: Creation of information

The discussion of the semantics of "source" doesn't seem to lead anywhere so I return to #49 instead. 6:52 "Whenever we see information and we trace it back to a source it always comes to a mind not an undirected material process". "it" in this sentence clearly refers to "information" Correct... An...
