Re: Accepted Jesus, But Doesn't Believe He's God

Scripture makes it very clear. Nobody gets to the Father but through Jesus. We must acknowledge, believe that Jesus paid our price on that cross. The bible does NOT say that to be saved we must believe in the trinity and state that Jesus is God. It simply doesn't. If it was the requirement of salva...

Re: We were shutdown.

Hacker culture is rather varied. If anything, I figure that hackers like a challenge and will work on ways to subvert that project mentioned in the links above. Regarding hacker culture, there's multiple variants. There's the newbies ("script kiddies") who have no understanding of programming and us...

Re: Worldview vs Mindset

Insults aside; why would a person have to be schizoid? No insult was intended. To answer your own question, above, read my original definition of mindset. I'm not going to spoon-feed you the answer. You have a brain, use it. FL :D I did read the definition you gave and you are wrong. You don't need...

Re: I Samuel 15: 1-3

So, in summary, God wanted to make a point, and what better way to make a point than forcing his followers to undertake a brutal and merciless slaughter of an entire people? I'm sure it was a nice break from those days of old when God just performed the annihilation of the wicked on his own. Nope. ...

Re: Objective Morality

What do people mean when they say morality is objective rather than subjective? I can understand a person of a particular religion pointing to a particular page in their sacred holy text that address the moral issue at hand; and claiming that as a demonstration of something being right or wrong, bu...

Re: Transhumanism a possibility or just science fiction

It's funny that a lot of people seem to write off science fiction as something akin to fantasy stories, when many great science fiction authors have been remarkably accurate at predicting future technologies and societal problems. T_T I'm still heartbroken that nothing of Patlabor has become a real...

Re: Transhumanism a possibility or just science fiction

Byblos's statement is pretty close to the transhumanist concept of evolution. It's less a matter of the biological concept and more a matter of augmenting the human body with technology. Especially to transcend normal physical human limitations. This has been a staple of the cyberpunk genre and deri...

Re: Deuteronomy 7:3

Um... the point of the law to not wear garments of mixed fabrics was symbolic of the need to worship the One True God, for one. For another, the rules against marrying certain groups of people was based on nationality and religious practices, not on race. The rule on not mixing seed on the same fiel...

Um, no, he's not. He's claiming to be, pardon the American expression, from south of the border.

Albeit born in the US state of Texas.

At least if I'm reading correctly.

Re: Gaming addiction

Okay, look. Video games are a form of temporary escapism, much like movies or books, except that it is interactive by nature. It's more like taking a brief vacation in a fantasy world. It's one way people can cope with the stress life can bring, and also a way to cope with boredom. Can it be utilize...

Re: Gaming addiction

I don't know the game, but it sounds like you have to fly like crazy to make it? Why are we far less inclined to take risks, put energy, planning, speed and skill into real life? Is life so unpredictable and unrewarding that, if you want the feeling of success - play a game? We deserve to succeed d...

Have you lost your mind, Rick? That game is terrible! How about you play a real game? There's a port of X-Com for mobile devices. It's a turn-based strategy game. X-Com actually has substance as a game. (And it will challenge you.)

Re: The damaging effects of bullies.

Rick, why must you white knight FL? He has shown time and again that he is an out of touch cruel hearted person and the antithesis of what a Christian or loving person ought to strive to be. He's taking the side of bullies over terrorized children for goodness sake, out of some delusion that childr...

Re: Gaming addiction

Well, games can be both good and bad for relationships, depending on one's tolerance levels for losing in the game (in the instance of competitive play) or for troll-ish humor (which happens in both co-operative and competitive play.) Games can be great for encouraging teamwork to solve puzzles or o...

Re: Gaming addiction

The reasons people play games, aside from the purpose of entertainment value, tends to differ from person to person. Also, not all games are very forgiving. Just because one can restart, that doesn't make the game any easier. Yes, games do require something engaging to keep the player interested. Th...
