Re: I Survived Beyond and Back.

No. Medical authorities worldwide agree that vaccination is both safe and necessary. Necessary? For what? Anything can be "necessary" if it's a means to an end. For example: Being punched in the face is necessary to know what being punched in the face feels like. If you're going to say necessary fo...

Re: I Survived Beyond and Back.

I've never once had a vaccine in my life. I also pretty much never get sick, and have never had any diseases. My point remains unchanged. I've got to admit that I don't know a lot about the subject. Who or what is your main source of information on this topic? Have you got children, and if not woul...

Re: Ep 25, "Guardian Angels" and justice

No, just playing with Judeo-Christian traditions by writing God and Yahweh without their vowels. Wouldn't want anybody to have to bury a copy of my posts to keep from erasing the name of a deity. ;-) Welcome aboard Beltrane! captain howdy, one of the staff atheists. I don't think any of the believe...

Re: Bliss in Heaven While Your Daughter Gets Tortured

Secondly, in Heaven we will be in spiritual bodies, not these earthly bodies. In this body, my children are flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone. But in my spiritual body, only those who are saved, blood-washed believers are my family. So when this woman dies and enters Hell she is no longer relat...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Perspective's got nothing to do with this; we're weighing the question whether God is somehow constrained by laws he himself launched at startup. You're arguing he is, I'm providing counter-examples in scripture that invalidate every single word of your case. What you seem to be arguing is that if ...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

There may be a sense in which, out of any relationship with creation, absolutely anything is open to God, but the act of creation itself must limit possibilities. Imagine God is going to create a world and he creates just one thing about that world, the thing he creates is the law of non-contradict...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

Babies can’t use phones, so I don’t think we need to worry about that one. Yes but surely this kind of indirect communication places the existential status of what one is in contact with in greater uncertainty. That is the point of the Turing test - if I only have written communication to go on, ho...

Re: Where the **** was Paul?

If we are talking about a relationship then by definition there are two sides. If the phone is ringing and you don't pick up then that is down to you. If you unplug the phone then that will stop someone calling however much they want to. Also by definition both sides have to make their counterparts...
