Re: Where the **** was Paul?

The reason for this is because I have already evaluated your claim and rejected it as false. And I once analyzed the idea that a thinking man could own a Toyota car and not be an idiot, and rejected it as false. Later I was forced to rethink this idea, and discovered it to be true. So having once c...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

What you're asking me to do is to lower my standards of evidence. People, believers and many non-believers alike, tend to speak about searching for evidence of God as if they were looking for evidence of phlogiston. But this is the wrong way to view the issue. God isn't some element on the periodic...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

BTW, Captain, there is no need to capitalise the H in "he". Even their own KJV Bible doesn't do that and it's got nothing to do with respect. Oh I know. I’m pretty inconsistent about it really. Sometimes I just capitalize out of habit, freq. I don’t do it at all. That time I just did it out of clar...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Think about it like this: I don't have God's cell phone number but he does have mine. Why am I responsible for trying to call him ? Great point Captain! You would at least expect him to send a quick text if he existed and was really interested. Here's a possibility I must admit that I haven't consi...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

First you Christians tell us God wants to relate to us. When he doesn't show up, you guys tell us to just open our hearts....then read a book and go live by it in lieu of God actually you know---showing up. Thank you, no. I decline. This is like asserting oneself to be in "a relationship" with an e...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Okay, I took him at "The atheists have examined everything" as saying that he has faith that others have already considered it and so he doesn't need to. I'm not offering proofs here at this point. I'm suggesting that the atheists -- SEG especially and HG in passing -- "level the playing field" and...

Re: An audio record of a miraculous healing.

Just because I'm an atheist doesn't mean I don't believe in a higher power. So---

Oh Emery, can you please allow us to embed videos somehow? Amen

Re: An audio record of a miraculous healing.

Yeah, I think we have reached That Point in our discussions yet again. So let me close out my remarks as follows--- I'm not begging the question: I'm pointing out that in Rowe's alleged refutation of the Christian God, he misses an important part of Christian theology. It is not begging the question...

Re: An audio record of a miraculous healing.

Note what you're saying here. On the one hand, as regards the existence of gratuitous evil you assert--- ....we simply do not have the mental equipment, in this life, to state that any event is necessarily gratuitously evil. But the existence of divine goodness? You're just fine with that--- I see ...
