Re: Are we afraid hard questions around here?

KOGnitionIn I suppose what I was trying to say above is, to answer this question, a "scientist" has determine what freedom is. In my case having the ability to do the thing in question and knowing it. Are you deliberately trying to show me up by parsing words? Apparently you cannot by taking the thi...

Re: Are we afraid hard questions around here?

B.W. I figured I had to be a scientist to develop the means to do what I wanted. If you weren't the moderator here.... ;)

Are we afraid hard questions around here?

An implausable thought experiment, short on details, but worthwhile: Suppose I was a scientist who thought each individual should have the freedom to end the the world if he or she wanted to? Like Adam and Eve had the freedom (though in their case they did not know it) to permanently exile the human...

The Late Great Vincent Price

I wish you all could see "The Masque of Red Death." I would like to see a real academic style debate and the aftermath between a good Christian and the Vincent Price character about Christanity where the loser would have to live a month under the "care" of the winner. Either way I couldn't lose.;)

Joke about the "End" of the World

Two guys were having an argument. One said " The World does not go by your rules." The other said "Yeah? Well maybe the World needs a massive overdose of castor oil." :twisted:

Does God have limits?

One of the things I have always been fascinated by is people saying "I can't" when all they mean is "I won't."
It's a long story but in a serious situation I once called somebody out on that and I have never forgotten it.
Can God do anything he wants to, and if not why not?

God and Dexter

You might want to watch Dexter on Showtime this year. Google it if you don't know what I am talking about. The show is getting into religion and it might not even be disrespectful :ewink:

Suppose we could not want to sin?

Suppose starting 3,000 years ago nobody on Earth could ever want to do anything God would consider a sin, regardless of whether one actually knew it would be a sin or not? What if any choices or decisions could one make? Could one ever be in a situation where initiative was required to avoid serious...

Star Trek: The New Generation

Are there any ST:TNG fans here? If so, I think there are some things about Data we can discuss here that would be relevent to this board. I wonder if you can guess where I am coming from?

Doubts

When I was a little boy in Sunday school I thought there was much, much more documentation of the life of Christ than I now think there is. I have serious doubts now about the whole thing. I imagine I will always have those doubts. However if my doubts are wrong I do not want to be damned and I want...
