Insults and calling me a liar. Is that all you have for me?

Sadly, however, you seem to want to project your own misconceptions rather than listen to what atheists say about atheism or what agnostics say about agnosticism. Atheism is ZERO belief in God, yet you exhibit several implications that you acknowledge that God might exist. An atheist rejects all no...

Blob sees no evidence of God because of what his requirements are...such as, he must be able to understand God fully to understand Him, and everything must be foretold in the form of "on the day of January 5, 2007, at the GPS coordinates XX,YY,ZZ, Joe Smith will receive three 45mm bullet wounds in ...

Including a date requirement is rather arbitrary. And anything can be subjectively interpreted... I provided what I consider to be objective statements of future events, including not arbitrary but actual dates these events will occur. Basically, by definition, blob is ruling out everything as bein...

Blob, but you have on numerous accounts claimed you don't believe in God yet mention that He could exist, that is atheism? Correct. No, that is agnosticism. Incorrect. Do you know who coined the term "agnosticism", when and with which definition? I'm be delighted to let you know. Sadly, however, yo...

Hi Sandy. From Blob's statements, I would classify him as an agnostic. He appears to think that God does not exist but acknowledges the possibility that he might be wrong (as in dentist analogy), so he just isn't sure. That sounds like agnosticism to me. It isn't. That's atheism. Take it from an ath...

What criteria would you declare as necessary for verification of Bible prophecy? Precise and detailed predictions, including a date, that cannot possibile be subjectively interpreted. For example: The first lunar eclipse of 2006 is a deep penumbral event best visible from Europe and Africa. First a...

August and BGood:

You can disprove a negative. I could disprove "2 + 2 does not equal 4".

However you cannot disprove the existance of a thing somewhere in the universe (unless the description of that thing is internally incoherent such as a "spherical cube").

Hello August. 1... 2... 3... Is that an accurate summary? It's a resonable approximation, yes, but for two things: :arrow: you go on to interchange point 3 (the untenability of Christianity) with knowledge of god's non-existence (e.g. you say What you seem to say in quote (3.) above, is that you hav...

This perhaps depends on whether you are a physicalist on the mind-body issue. If one is, and something like behaviourism or functionalism is endorsed, then Adam and Eve never really made the decision to eat even if we infer that their body had determined their decision by eating. ;) I am neither a ...

I know that many atheists argue this point, but I am unconvinced that they can logically hold atheism to be true, but also hold that there may be a god. You are welcome to consider atheism illogical. But if you know atheists do not claim to know for sure there is no god why maintain the position th...

and then I am aware of the ontological argument for the existence of God, but this is not what we are talking about. There can be absolute epistemological claims too. I don't know what the ontological argument is. (Actually I'm probably familiar with it but didn't realise it had a name). Can you ma...

But back to the subject, Blob do you think that personality is a manisfestation of the physical body? I think it is a manifestation of a physical person acting within an environment. In other words if I removed part of your brain, is it conceiveable that your beleif's might change? Yes it is. But c...

I don't see that there is anything wrong with analogies, and the analogy I provided of proportionality I believe clearly demonstrated my argument which was not simply the analogy itself. Yes, there's nothing wrong with analogies. But in this thread on this specific issue several had already been pr...
