Re: Why I am not an Atheist

JustHuman: For me, for what I believe in as an atheist, is uncertainty too. I do not claim to know the truth. If, per whatever theism, you assert uncertainty as to whether some god or God might exist, then that would make you an agnostic. Being and atheist is one with an assertion of belief that no...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

I could never be an atheist BUT I was, at one time, agnostic. Why did I never make the "logical" step to atheism? Well, I put it like this nowadays: A negative absolute ( there is no God) is illogical. The reason is obvious But I found this quote and it states it more completely: “To sustain the be...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

JustHuman: - why does atheism has to demonstrate infinite knowledge? - no (sane) atheist ever claimed to posess infinite knowledge. To echo Byblos - and THAT is the point! It wouldn't be sane to arrogantly assert there DEFINITELY is not a God - if there are things that they are unaware of that migh...

The Kardashev scale

Maybe the Kardahev scale is allready known, but to those unfamiliar with it, that scale defines several stages a civilisation can reach (providing they survive long enough), in an exponential scale: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kardashev_scale I wonder what anyone here thinks of what a type 4 or ...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

Well if I am not getting it. Maybe instead of riddles, just share your point. :) Edit: I don't understand. You asked me why it expanded and I told you specifically why it did. What is there that didn't cover your question? Reading back I see you asked why did it happen the first time but I don't se...

Yes. I can imagine that viewpoint. There are several viewpoints, also on this forum, it's a challenge t...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

God doesn't know his future because God has no future...God has no past, God is. And he is not bound in time, so whenever you think try thinking that way, see what conclusions you draw from there. :) Ok, that's an answer. But I do not mean our kind of 'future'. Clearly our 'future' cannot be used f...

Re: The Delusion of "Free Will"

God's earth is mostly 'blue'... Thank you at least for not wasting my time. Clearly you have no interest in learning why we believe what we do. I just wish you don't pretend that you are interested by posing illogical scenarios like God not knowing his future or demanding theistic proof, whatever t...
