That sounds fine - though perhaps in a new thread.

I wasn't expressing genuine confusion or doubt, no. I was supplying the example for which you asked - an example of how your 'prediction' could be read subjectively. I was hoping for a genuine example and had already stated pedantry is possible. No, but that wasn't my point. Someone in Taiwan could...

BTW do you apply the same pedantry to biblical prophecy? No, but atheists do, and I am totally certain that you would also. I would not deliberately refuse to acknowledge the meaning of the words, no. By the way, just so you know I'm not being completely pedantic, you do realise that here in Taiwan...

So pedantry it is, Fortigurn. I'm afraid that is most unconvincing of you.

Please point to why my initial eclipse examples are subjective or open to subjective interpretation. I have already explained this. No, you generically stated everything is subjective/open to subjective interpretation. Please demonstrate how this applies specifically to my eclipse examples I gave, ...

The issue is not whether the statements are subjective or objective, but whether or not they can be subjectively interpreted . That is the issue, as declared by you (not me). Take my examples then. In what sense are they subjective or open to subjective intepretation. You are arguing that accurate ...

I'm sorry, but this isn't good enough. You've created a backdoor for yourself with the statement 'that cannot possibly be subjectively interpreted'. Anything and everything can be subjectively interpreted. Furthermore, why the insistence on a date? I provded examples of what I consider to be object...

You're such a little twit for such an old person. Now both you and Thinker are insulting me. I wonder if unpleasantness a requirement of Christianity or just an unfortunate personality trait the pair of you share. Because reality is that which when you stop believing it, it doesn't go away. I could...

No, God's mercy is not limited-in His mercy He extends salvation to everyone-everyone, though, does not accept it. I'll just have to hope he's in an all-merciful mood not an all-just one when I meet him. where you get your rationalism? My rationality and irrationality come from the same place as yo...

Good grief you seem to ignore so much. It's not one or the other. It's both. One does not remove the other. God, being just, must punish people for their sin, and God being merciful gives man a way out of his sin-ever heard of Jesus? So his mercy does not extend to those who do not accept Jesus - i...

If everyone is judged then he is all-just, I agree, but at the cost of being not at all merciful.

Blob, would you conclude that it's not possible for a doctor to join the army and go to war? I mean, a doctor is supposed to save lives, but he's also killing people...using your logic, such a thing isn't possible. No. A doctor does not claim to be all healing. And that is where the incoherency of ...
