Re: What would God say if he came here and why.

Well, thanks for the discussion all. This is directly applicable to me, because I believe I do fall in to the category of one who "knows but rejects". So I appreciate hearing what you all have to say. You can claim I don't really understand (I would say none of us do), but then I'd ask: What incenti...

Re: Fundamentals of Science

Lunalle, I would say scientists have faith in that the world is describable by equations, laws. Do you agree? Applicably, yes, allowing for a certain margin of error. So, I would say fundamentals of science is that there can be science. The reason why there can be science, I think, lies outside sci...

Re: What would God say if he came here and why.

You are of the opinion that there is no God because God doesn't "behave" like YOU THINK He should. Then in that case, you should simply admit that you can't conceive of a God that exists that is different than what YOU think He should be. So, what doesn't exist is the God that YOU have created in y...

Re: Fundamentals of Science

I find it funny that I was the one to prompt you to educate us all on science, as I'm a scientist myself(Well, I'm a graduate student, but I've done and am doing scientific reasearch). To re-iterate, I find it sad. I realize that relativity as it stands cannot provide a complete description of the ...

Re: What would God say if he came here and why.

It's perfectly fine to have both past and present tense used in the same sentence. Like: I am eating dinner right now; he has already eaten. True, but again, your example does not match the original quote. A more accurate example would be: I am eating dinner right now and am enjoying it, he is eati...

Re: Fundamentals of Science

What according to Hawking does not obey phisical laws? I can't answer that question directly. I'm not gifted or trained enough in mathematics to follow his work. However, I have read him stating that Einstein's Theory of General Relativity is not accurate at the quantum level. A short quote from hi...

Re: Fundamentals of Science

Hi Dodger, Here is the post which motivated me to start this thread: Ah, I see...so you only credit other's experience as determining objective truth? Science is based off of experience. If theoretical models did not have to match up with our observations (experience!), then there would be no way to...

Re: What would God say if he came here and why.

Hi B.W. I believe you've made a few judgement here, which I'd like to address. You think me dishonest. While I am not claiming to be 100% honest, I believe I am for more honest than you see. The justification of my being dishonest you have offered, is based upon a certain set of assumptions which yo...

Re: What would God say if he came here and why.

Why do you assume I haven't seen love that way? I am confident I have, and I don't like it. May I ask what have you seen? It is strange to me that if what you have seen was real love, you did not like it. Why did not you like it? I have seen many people, I have explored many religions, many moral s...

Re: Religion vs. Science?

Really? What do you consider yourselves? I think people here have interesting ideas of labels. This is kind of humorous to me. I do apologize I missed this one in my last post, I consider myself a normal person living life, I don't do this for a living and I am not trying to defend what I believe. ...

Re: What would God say if he came here and why.

I wish Lunalle could one day see love as we see it or at least understand how we see it. Could this come from mere debates? I doubt so. It needs to meet loving people and have those loving people in our lives. I agree Hana, these really are pointless exercises if what we are trying to do is change ...

Re: Basis for belief?

You statement is self-defeating. If you are not capable of understanding objective truth (or knowing it even exists) then you cannot make a claim that there is a distinction between truth and objective truth. To say so, means you are claiming to know something objectively. Whoa. I understand the co...

Re: Religion vs. Science?

The Bible teaches us to respect ourselves and even to love ourselves, that verse is not the only one on love, there are plenty of other that teach us about self respect, self love etc.. Unlike you we don't just read one part of the Bible (cherry picking) and apply it, we take a holistic approach an...
