Re: Contemperaneous Sources

I have been debating with an agnostic friend of mine on philosophical topics for a year and a half. I have not convinced her much though. Pretty much most of our debates have been draws. Of course she isn't as hardcore skeptical the atheist you speak of, how perseptive is he to scientific/philosophi...

Re: Evolutionary Psychology in Robots

This group did a lot of that during their planning stages, but they're not just playing games - the natural selection method written about here is only one of their tools. Their goal is the development of a robotic population to serve humans. One of the scientists involved in this type of work said...

RationalWiki...

The site is frighteningly anti-christian, they have an article which is named "Incontrovertible Proof of Common Descent". I have examined it and it has convincing evidence, thugh I have found good rebuttals to them on this site. If anyone other then myself would look at them it would be most helpful.

Re: Pope Warns of Seductive Science

I think the Pope spoke correctly. There is a danger to faith if science trys to take over the role of faith. As I said before when someone in science extends to the unknown and declares that science will know all then the line has been crossed. Also when some data is interpreted and that interpreta...

Re: Pope Warns of Seductive Science

Its probably a little late to say this but I hope the Pope isn't saying what it sounds like he's saying; what he appears to say is that science is somehow dangerous to religion, that mindset could get the Church into a very uncomfortable situation. Religion as belief in God is not in conflict with s...

Re: Christian Testimonies - Share yours?

I in fact became a Christian when I was 5. I was not until nearly a decade later that I began to compare Chrisitanity and other religions. It was when I was 14 that I first debated an agnostic, then I have to admit my faith was cult-like I mainly accepted it and didn't ever question it and whenever ...

It was morning and evening and that was the nth day

I recently have been confronted with the fact that the bible says morning and evening in the days of Genesis. What are your thoughts?

Re: Christians Please Answer

The Christian faith is a faith builtupon converts for one thing; for another I do not actually consider myselfto be forcing it upon them. I have--well actually ii've only ever practiced door-to-door evanglism I havn't actually done it. But one thing I know is that your not supposed to force your bel...

I am not sure if this is the right forum to put this on but I have been carefully considering becoming Catholic. I have studied some of it and I was curious what your advice would be,

Re: Infinite universe?

Not that I am aware of; most cosmologists believe that the universe is expanding to fast to turn in on itself, thus an oscillating universe is impossible. In my opinion scientific evidence points towards a beginning roughly 14 billion years ago. Some have infered a multiverse but it is just a theore...
