Re: How do I endure and get along with difficult people

Uuuh, this has nothing to do with the rest of what you're saying, but... there wasn't any "witch-burning" in the Salem Witch Trials. 19 people were hung, nearly 200 people were accused, and several died while in prison. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history-archaeology/brief-salem.html http://law2.u...

Re: Sunday Assembly: a church for unbelievers

Sorry to seem like possibly jump in. Really? Because what you present is logical contradiction. Um...why is it a contradiction, logical or other wise? You cannot have two omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, self-existent beings. As Byb presented, I suggest you investigate the classical view of met...

This video discusses the subject of climate change and global warming, and it does bring up the Antarctica matter.

However, it presents a different view from that provided in the article Paul linked above.

Re: Religion vs. Science?

Paul, this is a clear fallacy of equivocation. The word "faith" was being used with the second definition in the oxford dictionary, and then you came along and switched to the first definition. Yet another example of the dishonesty of apologists. We don't all have faith (second definition). I used ...
