Re: Proof of God: "I want PROOF!"

I don't know much about quantum mechanics, so it's never been an issue with me. Kind of missed the point, didn't you? Probably; what's the point? Oh yeah; and the extensive research I mentioned before; it isn't limited to what can be proved via my 5 senses. So, here is the thing, you ( and I) accep...

Re: Proof of God: "I want PROOF!"

Lets say if 90% of the world's population saw evidence of "X" being true, and 10% did not, and I were one of the 10% who did not; initially I would probably assume I and the rest of the other 10% did something wrong to not see the evidence, so I would do extensive research to understand why I did n...

Re: Proof of God: "I want PROOF!"

In most cases; yeah. In what cases would you disagree and why?

Re: Is Christianity and Belief in God RATIONAL?

Only if there is one pure act. If there are multiple, everything must be covered between the multiple s. How can you have multiple things that are all pure act? If something is Pure Act it has NO potential to be acted upon so it is missing nothing, if it is missing nothing, how can there be more th...

Re: Predestination and prayer

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himsel...

Re: Is Christianity and Belief in God RATIONAL?

Consider cells, material, and energy. If those have always existed, that would make them all first causes and clearly distinguishable from each other. Look, Cells, material and energy, all of them are NOT pure ACT, are they? Name me ONE thing that you think is pure Actuality, something that is, fac...

Re: Proof of God: "I want PROOF!"

So, it seems to me that, you are ok with evidence by volume, correct? That is that, if enough people believe it, it must be true OR at least, these must be enough evidence for so many people to believe it ( ie: there is enough evidence to believe A if a an overwhelming number of people believe the ...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

The whole point of Jesus continually saying to NOW focus on WHEN but to be ready ALL the time was so that people would realize that it's not about WHEN you are to do things or believe in Him, it is about DOING AND BELIEVING, NOW and FOREVER. The time is NOW, be vigilante NOW, be righteous NOW, preac...
