Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

I agree the null set in the way you stated it would be a bit much for elementary schoolers! I think using manipulatives such as colored flannel would be a really good tool, like "let the big green circle stand for all dogs, and the little blue one stand for dalmatians. Put the blue circle inside of ...

Re: How Jesus Let Millions Die If He Was The Real Deal

His healings were the sham of what we have today with faith healers. Hi SEG! Boy, could we have used you here in California recently! The fires were just a few miles from my house. Anyway, I'm not around here much, but I just saw this sentence of yours and wanted to point out that they were very di...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Hey Og, I'm not around much anymore, but wow! people sure do need to be taught to think more nowadays! The things you hear that just make you want to pull your hair out! Logical fallacies, assumptions that people refuse to realize are assumptions - it's nuts. I haven't studied this subject as in-de...

Re: Attn Members: Does Claire Love Chappy?

Human beings are liars and hypocrites, Rian, because we lie and are hypocritical. Where do you draw the line? If someone lies once, will you call them a liar? Or do you wait until they have hit 100 lies? 1000? Or a certain number of lies a day? How do you make the determination that they are a pers...

Re: Omniscience and Free Will.

We may be confusing the issue somewhat by bringing God into the equation. This appears to be leading down rabbit holes concerning God's nature and perspective and away from the key question; namely Can you have free will if the future is fixed? The whole issue revolves around that. Still, it does h...

Re: Attn Members: Does Claire Love Chappy?

(FWIW, I prefer to apply terms to a person's behavior instead of to a person themselves. For example, I don't like calling someone a hypocrite, but I will say something like "that was a pretty hypocritical remark ". IMO, there is a big difference. It reduces the labelling of people, which I think is...

Re: Attn Members: Does Claire Love Chappy?

You say the mere acts of giving food, drink, clothing, or spreading His word is love, etc, but, no matter what you're giving, all that you do must also be done in love . Take notice, "If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkli...
