Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Now, who is God? To examine this question, we must make some additional assumptions. I assume a personal god -- after all, a distant god hiding in a distant corner of the universe doesn't really give us a purpose. Why do we need a purpose? If are a Deist, then all you have to believe in is a creato...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

I submit as an inductive observation that all humans are inherently flawed with a selfishness that makes us harm other people. No, if that were the case our species would not survive. We are genetically wired to be socially helpful towards each other to protect ourselves from extinction. So there a...

Re: Why the Cleansing of the Temple wasn't historical
