Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

A German Shepard and a Chi Auh auh cannot breed.This does not mean man can't do it artificially to produce a new breed.But left on their own cannot breed.This blows a big hole in speciation. I'm talking about normal variation amongst the population because this is used as evidence life evolves and ...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

Many have pointed out that contemporary philosophers misunderstand Aquinas' arguments. There is a growing number who are claiming Aquinas' arguments have indeed been misunderstood and people have simply been knocking down caricatures. I myself, like you, was suspicious when Jac on this board presen...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

No, they don't highlight flaws in Aquinas' arguments because they're not Aquinas' arguments . I encourage you to read over Contra Gentiles Book 2 Chapter 38 . It seems, if you are correct on what Aquinas is arguing, then Aquinas refuted his first, second, third, et al "Way" arguments long before yo...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

If I saw relevance to the questions, then I'd respond. What I believe and would argue/support, is different from what Aqunas has reasoned, and I'd prefer not to mix the two together as I'd expect this would create further distortion. You say you've lectured many, many years. That's nice. Even lectu...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

Straw man upon straw man upon yet another straw man ad nauseum. :roll: Against my better judgement I will try one last time to show you the numerous straw men you are building and attacking. But I beg of you to not waste my time if you're unwilling to engage, let alone consider, a metaphysical disc...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

Don, I think it is becoming apparent to everyone that you are not dealing with Aquinas' arguments at all. If we look at Aquinas' secound way , we see your " cause, efficient cause, first cause, Kalam Cosmological argument, etc. " really doesn't apply at all, nor your following responses which are t...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

Aquinas Five Ways: http://discussions.godandscience.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=42225 I will explain the flaws in Aquinas's 5 proofs. I have covered the flaws in his first proof for the existence of God(Motion). Since no one has attacked the flaws and fallacies themselves, I assume that they are valid....

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Nope! Not all dogs can breed.A German Shepard and a Chi auh auh cannot breed and neither one is a new species like you claim.This proves speciation is a lie like I told you about in my former post. This is one lie to make evolution more believable. It is dishonesty and it really hurts their credibi...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

THERE CAN BE NO INFINITE CHAIN OF MOVERS OR MOVEE'S . This is a fallacy of special pleading. This premise contradicts the first, which states that all objects are in motion. It is also an unjustifiable assertion. How does he know this? Even today we have a poor concept of infinity, so how does a 13...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

I can understand that in the 13th Century, few people could read, write, or had enough understanding to challenge Aquinas's logic. But today his proofs are embarrassingly, and obviously flawed. His fallacy-riddled proofs are blatantly obvious and easily exposed. I will try again in the simplest way ...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

It is becoming tedious to keep highlighting all the straw man and misrepresentation that I have to respond to. If you are going to accuse me of something, at least make sure it is accurate. For example, Byblos quoted "Truth is, at the very foundation of philosophy in general and metaphysics in part...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Yes they are all wrong but have been seduced by evolution.We can go over it and the only thing that will be demonstrated is normal variation amongst the population.As a matter of fact the latter part of your post is explaining normal variation amongst the population of humans and yet you are trying...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

The underlined is exactly what I was attempting to do when I initially suggested to you to discuss the PSR. By its nature It is a metaphysical type of discussion but again, you dismissed it out of hand as, how did you put it?, mumbo-jumbo. Truth is, at the very foundation of philosophy in general a...

Re: Skepticism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason

Byblos already explained it all to you, better than I could explain it. I'm not doing it again. I can't speak or ask any questions directly to Byblos. Of course you can, any time, in a post or in a PM. The reason I stopped responding, here and in the PSR thread especially, is that you did not seem ...
