Re: Help required on the Lebniz Cosmological arguement.

And as usual, dom continues to show that he doesn't understand what he's talking about and is unfamiliar with current literature and state of the debate. Uh, no. Apparently, it you who is unfamiliar or just simply inexperienced here. If you really feel this way, then it seems that you're either yea...

Re: Why do men have more dominance than women?

Ok going back to the OP. I'm curious about why you said something you don't agree with but then claim it is the truth? y:-/ You have begged the question for starters. What is dominance and where do you see men having more of it? Certainly in some societies there has been an historical picture paint...

Re: Help required on the Lebniz Cosmological arguement.

To answer your question Silvertusk from my perspective, No, the argument isn't a bad one. I don't find premise 2 to be problematic at all. Sorry that I'm picking on Jac, again what makes God necessary and the universe not? Begging the question. It assumes that God is not a necessary being for the ex...

Re: Oh no not another Trinity Thread!!!

...That first clause of your first sentence speaks to a point on which I'm a bit fuzzy. Jehovah's witnesses reject the Trinity, the Deity of the Son and the personhood and Deity of the Holy Spirit, and core/essential problems flow from that rejection. That's "easy" enough to recognize. More subtle,...

Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

Kurieno, I don't see the insight here. This thread looks like you're just venting about a Rubik's cube you say cannot be solved. Really. Neo, if you haven't already noticed, I have sort of expanded on solutions for counter arguments. Now, I want to put stuff under the philosophical microscope, but y...

Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

Kurieno, I am going to be incredibly helpful here in telling you that your recent reply shows thats you are very inexperienced. I think you're jaded and you don't know how to counter their argument. I mean, look at the very first statement and examine it carefully. "I dont know what ultimate reality...

Re: Ang Lee's Movie "Life of Pi's" False Assertions

I wasn't terribly impressed by the story of the film. It falls somewhere between average to mediocre. The visuals are of course stunning. The film lives and breaths pantheism all the way. Correction. Pluralism. Pantheism is the belief that ALL is God by identity. Monism essentially. Pluralism is ba...

Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

1. You must exist at least as a imperfect mental substance. 2. Trivial statements are true (The "A" is the same as an "A") 3. God exists I don't see how 1 relates with 2, and how they both come to the conclusion in 3. Why is it important that trivial statements be true? What would be the purpose in...

Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

ok, certainly. i'll clarify. We're talking about the atheists who are skeptical to the point where they deny everything you use to explain "ultimate" reality, but then they go ahead and claim their interpretation of "ultimate reality" is more reasonable or "obvious". The terms I mentioned I'll expla...

Re: Nature of Reality: A Challenge to Atheists

I think you guys might be a bit too jaded or cynical if its gone that far. I concur with a bunch of things that you both have said, but I think you guys are letting them off the hook a bit too easily in letting them simply accept their ways with their terms. Its not difficult at all to make it absol...

Re: Ontological Argument.

Silver, The problem here is that he is arrogantly and unwillingly wanting to acknowledge his irrational parodies. It's mockery and intellectually invalid. It's foolishness. Jac does know what I am telling him. He isn't ignorant. There is a difference between foolishness and ignorance. So, what's so ...

Re: Ontological Argument.

You find it persuasive because you are already a Christian. And what makes it persuasive? Nothing. That's the whole point. Thats your opinion, and your opinion (for lack of a better word) sucks. They don't just help. The argument can't be understood without them. And I highly doubt that you've been...

Re: Ontological Argument.

Jac, I'm going to hit you with it because you are asking for it, buddy. :lol: 1. Even if it works (and I don't think it does, for reasons I'll detail below), it isn't persuasive. Look, we have to be somewhat pragmatic here. Let's pretend that it is absolutely true in all of its glory . . . truer tha...

Re: Philosophy: Theology and Mathematics

Sorry for the really late reply dom, I define abstract as we would define something metaphorically. Apparent in the realm above and apparent in the realm below. It's like the abstract interface in Java where one can extend that abstract class to other classes so as to inherit its methods. So in my ...
