The Big Bang theory states that time came into existance during the big bang. And it was no a singularity, space is infinite however it is smaller as we turn back the clock, it gets more dense but it is still infinite. It was not a singularity because that would be a black hole, thus it would not h...

Here it becomes interesting. I try to write short statements. Classical physical laws are deterministic. Agreed. If you plot state variables for a classical physical law that describes a deterministic system, you can find regular deterministic patterns. If you plot "F = ma" and its integrals, you ge...

Re: Can you find any flaws in this argument?

Dan, Let me try to comment your statements: Statement 1: agreed Statement 2: agreed Statement 2 implications: incomplete. Not necessarily there was a singularity with zero dimensions, and infinite density/temperature (impossible to describe). Going back in time, we can assume that the universe start...

Are you married? Will you ever be? Because your affection for your wife is entrely subjective and can never be scientifically tested and proven objectively to everyone else. Yet you're willing (I assume) to base a major portion of your life on your own subjective feelings of affection. Why do you t...

I am talking about macroscopical events like, for example, the chaotic motion. It has been demonstrated that e...

You've admitted theories are subjective in principle as they are based on subjective experiences through our senses. You then say if something becomes objective it becomes a scientific "theory." Yet if theories are subjective then how can scientific theories be both subjective and objective? Which ...

Mastermind wrote:
"2+2=4" is objective.
"God exists" is subjective.
"God does not exist" is also subjective
No. They are all objective. Whether God exists or not has nothing to do with somebody's opinion. He either exists or He doesn't.
Accepted. I didn't use good examples.

Marco, Sorry, I don't understand you. If the status of the universe could be determined by exact mathematical laws, everything would be deterministic. This is because we could apply these mathematical laws at each status of the universe, ie at any time and over time. But it has been demonstrated tha...

But you have made assumptions in believing that faith is subjective, and reason objective, and that the two can't or need not mix. I don't think it's only an assumption. It seems that the difference is implicitely included in the definitions. Both faith and reason are products of our mind. Therefor...

I'm wondering, have you ever examined the relationship between faith and reason? Or has it been an assumption of yours that no such relationship exists? This is exactly the point. I am trying to examine faith and reason. But, separately, first. I am trying to make no starting assumption as far as p...

Now I know you don't really want to hear that someone else thinks your mind is clouded by satan and your own sinful nature. Satan is another large argument for discussion and I would leave it apart for the moment. I can only say that what might look a clouded mind is just a mind that tries to under...

Alien, I hope you do understand the difference between evidence and acual proof... Are you saying that an evidence is something subjective (what might be evident to you might not be evident to me, and vice versa), whilst a proof is objective? For example, if you carefully look at the sea horizon, y...

Alien: to my statement: "Atheists can't disprove God with evidence." you wrote: "Here i agree with you." :D i'm glad you've changed your mind, because earlier you wrote: An atheist is apparently able to disprove god with evidences. Only a quick comment, just for sake of clarity: I didn't change my ...

I would like to overcome somehow the problem of words. I am giving a similar meaning to different words, and this may look like a contradiction, I agree, but I hope to overtake that. I can talk about faith, however. To my understanding, faith is the only reason why a person can be called "religious"...

I don't agree with your lumping Faith in with Religion. I am not lumping faith with religion. I know that there are institutional religions, that are artificial, and I do not intend those. I do intend religion simply as faith. This is probably because of my approximate english. However, I can use t...
