Re: What too many Christians do

I think too many (but by no means all) Christians either refuse to deal with tough questions or try to side track them with platitudes and irrelevencies. Therefore I refuse to directly deal with this tough question, seeing as we spent the first half of this thread discussing the grammatical usage o...

Re: Free will and Omniscience

When the witches told Macbeth he would be king, did that make him any less responsible for murdering King Duncan? They knew what his choices would be, but he was still the one who had to make them.

Re: Former Global Warming Skeptic changes Mind

Yes, indeed. If you accept an Old-Earth worldview, then certainly you must know that during the Mesozoic Era (I.E. the time of the dinosaurs) the average earth's temperature was far higher. North America was just a thin strip of land with a massive "inland sea", and ice caps were far more rare. And ...

Re: Critique of "Can Christians Use Drugs?"

If we allow access to Marijuana legally, a great deal more people will use it, and we will be causing more problems than we started with. The costs in damages from accidents and health care would far surpass the cost of "keeping it illegal"... enforcement officers are doing little enough even now. W...

Re: Free will and Omniscience

Personally I believe that we are over thinking this. If God knows what will happen -- either by presence in all time or by knowledge of all time -- that doesn't mean that we don't have free will. He created us in the beginning in the way that He thought was either best or most fair, and the way he c...

Re: Hi, Fetus

I think it is selfish to assume that your child doesn't deserve the time to make their own choices and to assume what their life will be like from your own perspective. Why take their life from them just because you think it won't be a good life? y:-/

Re: Does God have limits?

God is capable of doing anything he wants to do, and if that means rewriting the laws of logic to make a square circle then yes (I suppose). To say God is incapable of going against his nature opens up a gap for fallacy in itself.... the fact that God doesn't go against his nature displays that God ...

Re: Atheists response to Descent of Man Theory article--must

The "hypotheticus" argument is utterly flawed even from an atheistic point of view! According to Darwin, variation is always present within a species. Therefore, if a long amount of time in which there is a stable environment occurs, this will only promote genetic variation -- when the environment b...

Re: The Omnipotence and Omnicience of God

The last argument in red is silly at best.... if God is omnipresent, meaning that he can also either exist in all time or in time unlike we experience it, or perhaps even above or outside of time, then he first doesn't know what he is GOING to do, but what he does. Also, He wouldn't need to change w...

Re: Can physics and chemistry account for ... ?

What makes us different? Our soul. What is a soul? Something which makes us different. That's a circular reasoning. Our soul is what causes us to actually feel and see what we experience.
