Re: Former skeptic shares glimpse of heaven

I don't think my memories are nonphysical, I think they are partly physical. I think knowledge is most typically in the form, at least partly, of information, and information is necessarily physical. There appears to be a nonphysical aspect associated with knowledge, however, or at least an aspect ...

Re: Biology of life and 3D spatial positioning

Sidetrack: So you seem to accept that humans can design human cells. If they create a human, should that person be treated as a regular human or some subclass? Wouldn't the default position being held is that, considering that the DNA is human, and being based off of humans, it is a human? At least...

Re: Atheism the New Religion?

So tell me this then Beany, do you believe that the Christian God exists, yes or no. Whatever your answer is is your belief, since your an atheist that would be your belief as an atheist hence giving your atheism a belief. Atheism may not have specific beliefs but rather it is a world view made up ...

Re: Atheism the New Religion?

Atheism isn't a belief, but a lack of a belief in any god. The new religion you might be thinking of is scientific naturalism, but it's more of an idealistic philosophy more than a religion, since there is no deities or rituals involved. Atheism is a belief, it is a belief there is no God(s). If yo...

Re: Biology of life and 3D spatial positioning

Your regard of helium balloons being moved by an intelligent agent is a comedic interpretation, though yes, it can be said that at least at some point the helium balloons were moved by an intelligent agent. ... Lighter gasses rise while heavier gasses descend and stay lower. ... Even so, my intenti...

Re: Biology of life and 3D spatial positioning

If you are certain that intelligent design is not an acceptable consideration then why are you posting in a Christian forum where it is continually asserted that an intelligent designer is the only answer for how 3 dimensional life began? The issue here isn't whether there is a creator but whether ...

Re: What is morality?

Thanks for the response Jac. I feel I have much to learn from you. As for morals versus ethics.. I don't have a way to distinguish them personally, I use them interchangeably. I'll keep in mind your definitions though. Morals VS Ethics. There was an episode of NCIS where the character "Ducky" used ...

Re: Where do you guys stand?

Hi flawed What do you say to the new studies on the changes in the brain happening in children who play violent video games? I doubt you could have much bias in physiological changes. I will see if I can find a link to that study. I do agree with what you are saying have we should be very careful a...

Re: Where do you guys stand?

One thing I think is interesting is that playing violent video games has a proven link to increases aggressive behaviour, one could say that it is evidence of causation in terms of fantasising. Dan Actually, a number of places tend to say that this assumption is the result of study bias. Some studi...

Life problems, personal problems, and social concerns.

Um, hello. I'd like to request that other people pray for me, as there are some things I very much struggle with. There are also some things going on in life that are pretty rough, and I'm also worrying about friends who struggle with some similar problems that I do. As per things going on in life, ...

Re: Alien Life

Even so, traveling across the universe by technological means seems rather implausible. Plus the arguments about the dangers of such travel are quite convincing to me. There are dangers of flying a rocket into space because of the type of fuel it uses... I guess we shouldn't do that either. It's pr...

Re: Pretty Upset with Dr Phil Today

yeah I probably should have put this topic somewhere else but I am still pretty new to this site and after watching that episode I was just so irritated that I had to vent somewhere and was a little rash. My main problem with the episode was that Dr Phil gave the girl a slap on the wrist for her ac...

Re: Pretty Upset with Dr Phil Today

So I just wanted to address a few things FlawedIntellect stated. I identify as bisexual. This being said, I can say that sexual addiction or addiction to pornography has nothing to do with homosexuality. I am a virgin and I don't watch pornography so I find it difficult to believe that I could poss...

Re: Alien Life

It just seems to me, that space travel is unrealistic. [Some people said] It's impossible to fly, but today we do that. [Some people said] It's impossible to get to the moon, yet today we have already done that. [Some people said] It's impossible to travel to other planets, but there are already pl...

Re: Pretty Upset with Dr Phil Today

"True. But what about adults who only feel attracted to the same sex? No one "chooses" to feel attracted to anyone. People who are gay or bisexual don't "change their mind" one day and become gay/bi." Some do most do not I will admit that. With all the research I have done I do not believe that peo...
