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

It is Christian doctrine that at the moment of his birth Jesus was fully human, is it not? It is also Christian doctrine that at the moment of his birth Jesus was fully God. That would seem to indicate that at one particular point in time Jesus was both fully human and fully God. Not the second. A ...

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

Here's the question: Christian doctrine is that Jesus was fully God and fully human at the same time . Not really. God and man are not subject to time in the same way so you will notfind this kind of claim in the creeds and definitions. We are talking about something atemporal assuming a temporal n...

Cool I...

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

If either p or not-p and p implies both q and not q then not-p. That is a formal proof for a negative. Okay....Now insert the following values: p = "Jesus was fully God" q = "Jesus was fully human" therefore If either "Jesus was fully God" or not "Jesus was fully God" and "Jesus was fully God" impl...

Re: Attn: Rian.

Thank you, Captain Howdy, for sharing how to put a person on ignore. I don't want to watch Claire's deluded logic with the asking for examples thing when we all know we've presented examples time and time again, which she then ignores. I'm betting she's going to go with something like "well, no one...

Re: An evil god?

Both interesting. I think the question of how different humans are from other animals depends a lot on how you define things. It is interesting when you have these things pointed out where you get these similarities. I am quite prepared to believe that the preliminary basis of morality can be found...
