Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

I think that about sums it up. Scepticism is always selective but I would hope reason and passion could learn to co-operate. That is not true. Skepticism is not always selective and you would have a difficult time proving such a thing. You may have that impression based on someone you've encountere...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

Where you see mysteries I see absurdities. You view this issue re: law of non-contradiction as just some kind of paradox, like Zeno's arrow that you just have to learn how to live with. But it's not. The core idea that God would in any meaningful sense become fully human and yet remain fully God is...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

Piffle... https://www.iep.utm.edu/incarnat/#H2 Incarnation In the Bible's fourth gospel, John tells us "the Word [God the Son] became flesh [incarnate] and dwelt among us" (John 1: 14). The central claim of Christianity is that Jesus of Nazareth was none other than God the Son, who while remaining ...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

@Moon: Our entire exchange reduces to this—- The Christian: Hosanna! The Word has become flesh in Jesus! The Skeptic: lolwut? Law of Non-Contradiction! The Christian: Hosanna! The Word has become flesh in Jesus! Just not in the same way at the same time.... To be honest Cap I never for a moment tho...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

You have asked questions of a highly abstract kind. You then complain and say it is woo when I give a highly abstract answer. You asked questions about abstract possibility and then ask but how could we know if these abstract possibilities did happen. I don't see that we could. I just asked could G...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

Wow, wot an overload of woo! So he could, but yeah, it ain't gonna happen? How could he possible sin anyway and how would we notice? You have asked questions of a highly abstract kind. You then complain and say it is woo when I give a highly abstract answer. You asked questions about abstract possi...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

Ok, here's your chance to answer in your own way. 1. Can God sin? 2. Can he appear before me right now? 3. Could God give undeniable proof of his existence? Let's see if I have misread you.. 1. Not in himself. When the word is incarnate the impassable becomes passible in and through the human natur...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

I was messing with you a little bit, I confess it. But then, I didn't consider your response to be a serious reply; sorry. I was merely alluding to a core church belief that while Jesus was on the earth he was fully God and fully man at one and the same time. It was entirely uncontroversial but you...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

You are committing a non sequitur when you introduce a new term after speaking about the original term, fractions. It went like this. I said: You are saying that a person can be 100% male and 100% human without any contradiction, which doesn't align with a teapot that is 100% steel and 100% porcela...

Re: Why Faith Isn't a Reliable Pathway to Determine the Truth

No it wouldn't. Omnipotent even within those terms is pretty meaningless. Your god that is fully man and at the same time fully God (an immaterial being) is illogical, yet you have no problem with that. I would havea problem if it was illogical but so far neuther you nor the Cap have given me any r...
