Fortigurn wrote:Blob, what do you make of Bible prophecy?
I'm afraid my answer is rather predictable, Fortigurn.

I find it vague and general and therefore unconvincing.

Thanks, though to clarify I'm not a tee-totaler. I have a glass of wine or a beer 2 or 3 times a week.

Do you know what they really think? Do you or can you read their minds? Many have proved themselves not to be fair weather friends time and again. I agree, however, I have had friends that have good thoughts or good intentions, when they turn around and backstab me. Same with their thoughts. I've f...

My lack of belief is complete, but I acknowledge I could be wrong. There might be a god, but I don't believe it (for now at least). Non-sequitur. Eh? For a statement to be a non-sequitor it needs the format "because of this-and-that it follows such-and-such". Actually I compare what is said by othe...

Do you know the true agenda to the individuals thoughts that you know? Agenda? How do you know they might be making claims that are not true? Because these are friends who have earnt my trust. Most people are good people, Thinker, be they atheist or theist. I know there are very ungodly people that...

Matthew 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. So that means the earth and the heavens (space) has already passed away, as in being completely destroyed? Sorry Thinker, I'm not sure what you mean. (For me that verse indicates Jesus' second c...

This question really presents no problem when knowledge is understood correctly. For example, lets say a tea drinker has never had the opportunity to taste coffee. If they ask what coffee tastes like, someone might respond it tastes like tea only much stronger and slightly different. The tea drinke...

Atheism is no belief in God, none. Correct. Atheists say they know for a FACT that He doesn't exist, there is no way, none whatsoever Some might, but most I know do not. Including myself. (although I am strongly inclined to believe they know God exists, they just have rejected Him so much that they...

There is TONS of information on the external evidence of things of the Bible that confirm the internal things. I'd hope so. If every city and character in the bible was total fiction it would be strange. Oh, and I couldn't help to laugh at the fact you claim that Jesus has not returned 2000 years l...

Blobby's world, how has "Christianity crumbled under scrutiny" The contradictory and illogical nature of the Christian god; the problem of suffering; the gruesome and incoherent content of the bible; the horrors of Christian nations past; the lack of correlation between "goodness" and "christianity...

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil enlightened Adam & Eve to the reality of the shame of sin. Even their conscience was now defiled and they needed a Redeemer to purge their conscience. The issue was whether it was their fault to eat from the tree of knowledge. Before doing so, i.e. when th...

I am an atheist. I have no belief in god. Why is that not an absolute statement? It is not an absolute claim because of the distinction between epistemology and ontology. There might be a god (ontological statement), but I don't believe it (epistemological statement). But I would never be so arroga...

Apologies, and you are right.

Aren't our brains the exception to the 7 year turnover? I could be mistaken.

So are you an atheist or not? You wrote to me previously:"An atheist may believe in aliens, ghosts, spirits, the soul - just not gods." You certainly come across more as an agnostic. I am an atheist. I have no belief in god. Let make a hypothesis: "A green monster lives on the Planet pluto" Do you ...

Is atheism not an absolutist ideology too? No. "I am an atheist" is a statement of lack of conviction regarding the god claims of others, not a knowledge claim. How is it not a knowledge claim? You claim to absolutely know there is no God or gods. I claim no such thing. Let make a hypothesis: "A gr...
