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

Another Non sequitur! We were talking about percentages! percentages are a type of fraction. https://www.mathsisfun.com/decimal-fraction-percentage.html So are decimals, but we weren't talking about decimals either were we? I really don't think I should be having to explain junior school level Math...

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

You are quite right Claire. It is futile to ignore the way a word like omnipotent is actually used because you can make up a definition, based on the word's etymology rather than its usage, that implies a contradiction. Any fool can play that game. Everyone's got their limitations Moon. Even your g...

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

No I never said the nature of either God or man were things that could be measured as fractions. Another Non sequitur! We were talking about percentages! percentages are a type of fraction. https://www.mathsisfun.com/decimal-fraction-percentage.html Moonwood, you should know by now that a mind is a...

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

If he can, that means he can't lift it and is not all powerful. If he can't, he is also is not all powerful. So can he or can't he? God can't because it's illogical. Or, a better way to say it is that it can't exist, and has no bearing on reality. In the end, this is a silly riddle that does as lit...

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

No shit Sherlock! 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% porcelain. You are trying to say that something like a cat being 100% animal and 100% feline is the same as something that is made ...

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...

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

The teapot has properties that we know on empirical grounds are mutually exclusive but no logical contradiction is present. There are many case where something can be 100% one thing and 100% another thing without their being any contradiction. For example a person can be 100% male and 100% human wi...

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...
