Re: Chapabel's Cowardice Towards His Church Policies/Staff Contact.

According to the definition in the article you linked to, it appears that neither one is a false dilemma. There's two options and one is the false dilemma. Further study of this logical fallacy, and I'm confident you'll progress towards a better understanding, which will help you with this exercise...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

I'd like for you to keep hanging around, Cap'n. Why thank you! The only changes I'd make to the forum is (1) I wish we had more Christians here. I've always felt the atheists were over-represented and the Christians under-represented. And (2) I wish Emery would fix it so we could embed videos. Than...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Fair enough. You have concluded, by a process you feel to be rational, that no miracle can ever be demonstrated by evidence. You cite Hume on the point. And you wish a miracle if you are to believe in the Christian God. Thus you have two mutually exclusive assumptions, which force the conclusion th...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

I state as a reasonable inference, explanatory of all that I know and have experienced, and predictive in nature, that God exists. I did not see him heal a leper; I have not been knocked down like Paul on the road to Damascus. I cannot say that I know empirically that He exists; I can say that I am...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Precisely. Luke describes Paul having undergone that at least twice. Paul states above that he underwent it five times; this despite being a Roman citizen, who could only be scourged thus by court order (and not at a centurion's whim, as with non-citizens). It certainly seems unlikely that a person...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Clarification, 39-Lashes: This whipping with the cat-of-nine-tails was known as the forty-minus-one: Forty stripes was almost always lethal, so the punishment stopped at thirty-nine. Despite this restraint, the mortality rate for Roman scourging was about 12.5%. Those who survived it and were then ...

Re: Chapabel's Cowardice Towards His Church Policies/Staff Contact.
