How do we approach a new proposition?

Create a topic and discuss! No subject is off limits, but moderators have the right to remove asshat posts. What's an asshat post? Selling stuff, trolling, harassing--the usual stuff you don't want to see either. Happy posting!

So, this is as good a place as any to wrap up another matter: I have just posted my last bit on Carrier's OHJ book, and I trust that SEG will shortly post his conclusion on Lewis, if he has not already. Based on these, I submit the following survey for the voluntary participation of those who followed both threads:

1. Were my responses to Carrier on point and based on his actual arguments?
2. Were SEG's responses to Lewis on point and based on his actual arguments?
3. Do you feel that I answered Carrier well?
4. Do you feel that SEG answered Lewis well?
5. Do you feel that one or the other of us could be said to have won the overall debate? (if we take the threads as a debate)
6. Have you changed your opinion in either direction on anything significant based upon those two threads?

I would be interested to know the general opinions on those six points; keeping in mind that popular vote does not make either me or SEG automatically "right" or "good."
Deflating when you realize that maybe our exchange wasn't really ever followed by more than a few people. Kind of funny too

There's probably more people than you realise that are reading without any commitment. I don't mind it, its soothing for my non-existent soul! I do wish that Og would have answered a lot more of my posts though.
Premise One: If a compassionate God exists, then he would do things just as a compassionate person would.
Premise Two: God doesn't do things as a compassionate person would.
Conclusion: Therefore, a compassionate God does not exist.

I see it merely as our role to present our best information. If one or none, or the population of Estonia follow it, now or in the future, we none-the-less have done all in our power to present what we know.
EGO TE ABSOLVO, and there's nothing you can do about it.

And I wish you had answered my points on point instead of regurgitating Cut-n-Paste, but it is what it is.
