  1. You often remind me of Dr Jubal Harshaw from "stranger in a strange land". This is a good thing btw
  2. Got it. I'm slow about that sometimes. So...dont feed the troll
  3. Words written by superstitious middle eastern men 2000 years ago should not be the basis of a life philosophy.
  4. Your computer was created by science. Tell you what. You don't believe in anything not created by God? Do us a favor and stop using it
  5. I doubt your resolve. I live nowhere near by anyway and can't figure out what your really saying
  6. One of the greatest lies ever told was that we are born somehow wrong, in sin. It is a lie that has led not to peace or prosperity or enlightenment but rather to suppression, murder and suffering. The book containing this lie does espouse some truth. After all the best lie has a little truth to make it easier to swallow. The truth is you can judge by its fruit. What has been wrought from the tree of Christian beliefs and the bible? Certainly not love of everyone. Look at the proselytizers and how they are busy condemning every other belief. How much war and pain and evil has been wroug
  7. I know plenty of your mythology. You just don't appreciate that I have figured out it's not reality.
  8. Adoption of another culture's events certainly wouldn't be wrong if credit was given. However not only is credit lacking but the thieves deliberately meant to harm the original culture by demonizing and usurping them.
  9. Truth in my view requires fact. Lack of evidence would suggest you have your statement correct but applicable to yourself instead. Can you accurately define delusional?
  10. If we're not predisposed to sin we're not beholden to the original sin and not born in need of salvation and your religion becomes a racket
  11. If God is responsible for our environment and genetics and those are what determines how we choose then yes he is. Now you have said that the environmental option was nonsense and you have agreed with it. Obviously he would be responsible for the genetic option since he designed it. He stacked the deck from the all knowing perspective you credit him with. Yep you agree he's responsible...your just afraid to admit it
  12. The environmental learning, yes. So you clearly agree that we are a product of our environment and genetics. And that God created and set the rules for both. And that he is by default responsible for his programming.
  13. How do you learn Christian beliefs? Oh yeah...your environmental upbringing.
  14. We act based on genetics and environment both of which God controls absolutely. You know the all powerful bit? Then our free will must by definition be illusion. Meaning God set it up entirely
  15. God being all powerful and knowing means he set the circumstances up in the first place for there to be no solution.
  16. People will believe any nonsense because they want it to be true or they fear it is true. The only counter to this principle is awareness that we are all susceptible to it and vigilance.
  17. Rambling doesn't transmit information well. Could you write more coherent strings? Then we can properly discuss our points
  18. I can debate freely. You have no power to stop my freedom of speech. I have not attacked you. Merely debated your perspective.
  19. No. I just want them to know that I see through the game and I don't buy it.
  20. Your freedom of religion shouldn't allow you to impact my freedom. If your God exists and he gave us all free will then who are you to deny me what your God gave?
  21. Stoics admit they are prone to human error the same as any other person. You are correct in your observations. I have a natural tendency to believe the best in people so I often find myself in this argument with Dan believing he is capable of learning. I admit I am in error and will attempt to steer clear in the future of this circular trap.
  22. Your right. He argued that love really meant faith.
