    The Extension of Science Beyond Its Scope

    To an extent this OP is a bit misguided. People will opine outside their fields of expertise. What we should ask is why people are so frequently uninsterested in questioning their credentials and so willing to find pretexts to justify inconsequential and destructive stances. Also, I am...

    The Extension of Science Beyond Its Scope

    That is disputed at best. There is quite a lot of ethical research.

    God cannot be defined into existence.

    The OP is an exercise on building a hypothetical. It may or may not be internally consistent, but there is no attempt at connecting it to anything observable or detectable in the reality of facts. I assume that it can be a rewarding exercise from an aesthetical sense, but there is no...

    Even one disbeliever on the earth is too much.

    Sorry. Not seeing the point, nor does it really make any real sense.

    Even one disbeliever on the earth is too much.

    Sorry, I am just not seeing anything to follow in there.

    Even one disbeliever on the earth is too much.

    I don't really understand how this relates to the situation that the Qur'an creates regarding itself and atheism.

    Even one disbeliever on the earth is too much.

    In a nutshell, you are saying that either we atheists are liars or Islam is not the true religion. Which, to be fair, is indeed how things stand. I realized well over a decade ago. Kind of strange that a doctrine would empower its disbelievers to say authoritatively that it is false, but that...

    Louisiana becomes first state to require that Ten Commandments be displayed in public classrooms

    Not surprising, but weird. And very much an attack on the separation between church and state. Which is doubtlessly the point.

    Is Solving the contradictions in hadiths possible today?

    The way I see it, there is only so much that written texts can do. The true worth of a tradition is determined to a large degree by its ability to transcend its own origins and that definitely includes its written texts. Also, @Link , I think you may be overestimating the awareness of Muslim...

    Even one disbeliever on the earth is too much.

    That... is a pretty solid argument against the claim of the truth of Islam, I have to say.

    Even one disbeliever on the earth is too much.

    That line of rhought puts us - perhaps everyone - in a difficult place, @Link (Edited to correct: I meant "place", of course).

    Why does homelandr exist and why is he evil ?

    Homelander lacks moral integrity. He is much too driven by his basest drives. That is just who he is; he never learned better. Or to put it in another way, he never could or wanted to learn moral wisdom. As for Anthony Star... he is an actor. It is his job to understand the characters that...

    Why does homelandr exist and why is he evil ?

    The supernatural power of denying existence to the supernatural :)

    Why does homelandr exist and why is he evil ?

    I don't understand this question. How or why would his existence need any particularly justification or explanation? There is no obvious mystery there. Far as we can see? Very little, fortunately. He has recently made statements that put any lingering doubt to rest.

    Why does homelandr exist and why is he evil ?

    Homelander is a nearly pure example of the self-centered bully and hypocrite. A very common type of person with little to no interest in introspection, empathy or morality - which, interestingly enough, often leads to pursuing public displays of having just that interest in order to attempt to...

    57 to 1

    Sort of my point. There is only so much that can be achieved by lending prestige and funding to military forces with the ridiculously destructive and expensive resources that now exist... and most of that is countered by the appearance of legitimacy that comes from responding in kind. That is...

    57 to 1

    Compulsory drafting into the military is... not a good idea. We should all be discussing how to extinguish the military, instead.

    Why don't more people know about Edmonton ?

    Reminds me of a difficulty I found a couple of months ago discussing biology in these forums. There are about a trillion cells in a human body. That makes it so that very unlikely events happen daily in our bodies. Significance depends a whole lot on our scope of perception.

    When if ever will Canada be as well known on the world stage and have as much culture as the United States has now ?

    I am a bit surprised by that. All in all, Canada strikes me as having most of the significant advantages of the USA while having somehow evaded most of the nightmares. It certainly has a better international reputation, and apparently a lot less political and social unease. Of course, I am...

    Why don't more people know about Edmonton ?

    West Edmonton Mall was once the biggest shopping mall in the world. But it is a big world. It is just not reasonable to expect random people to know much about its cities. Even though Edmonton is also the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta, of which there are only ten (plus three...
