    What more important to you

    Well sure. I think, at an intellectual level, we are all inclined to judge the inner worth of our being to a higher standard. But that's not the whole story. Once you acknowledge THAT you have to ask yourself how close you reach that mark. That can be a difficult question. Ideally, we all value...

    Is it Reasonable to Compare Gods with Bigfoot, Fairies, Unicorns, and Leprechauns?

    A theist's conception of God is often well-developed. Whereas an atheist is looking more at the brute force truth-value of a claim. Both approaches are valid. You can't fault the atheist for bringing in examples of other "mythical" beings (like fairies and such) because they are asking for...

    Do we crave witchcraft subconscious?

    Not me. But, wow, I have to thank OP for sharing Galatians 5:16-24. What an incredible passage! I found it incredibly meaningful and honest. But I think it's missing the point to see this passage as a condemnation of witchcraft. The suggestion that we are compelled toward witchcraft, or...

    What more important to you

    That's an interesting question. I don't really know. They're both important to me. I guess, objectively, it easy to see that how one views oneself is most important. But subjectively speaking, at an instinctual level, I might be more inclined to concern myself with how the world sees me.

    Atheists and their jargon of insults

    You can be a Christian and still not know. If we define "Christian" as anyone who has accepted Jesus as their Lord and savior (ie. no knowledge requirement) than it follows that "knowing" is not a prerequisite for being Christian, right? It's "Him who has ears. Let him hear." Not, "He who...

    Atheists and their jargon of insults

    I've known quite a few atheists who had a strict religious upbring wherein they studied and/or memorized much of the Bible. Just like theists, atheists come in all different flavors: snarky, brash and insulting, patient and understanding, etc. I mean, yeah, you have staunch, hard-nosed atheists...

    Answered Prayers

    Reminds me of another quote: "Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a raindance." -- Bix Bender

    Atheist

    I forget exactly what was in your post, but I don't remember it being judgmental or anything. It did seem like you wanted to have a debate... which is what the "debate" subforums are for. This is well worn territory, and people have their pitchforks ready when the topic is broached. But that's...

    Atheist

    I didn't just repeat what you said. I added sarcasm.

    Is Absence of Evidence Evidence of Absence?

    No. Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence. I'm sure someone has already brought up Russell's teapot by now. If not, google "Russell's teapot" for the scoop.

    why must God be good?

    IDK. Ten murders is kind of a lot. Maybe they're both evil.

    why must God be good?

    Idk about other folks. But I wonder about a malevolent God all the time. It gives me the creeps. A malevolent God is a scary thought.

    Atheist

    Yeah, atheists tend to be grateful for stupid stuff like their family... and people in their lives who love them. They might be grateful concerning their kids, even though they might not consider their kids to be "larger than themselves." But, quite often, "larger than self" things are targets...

    Where do rights come from?

    Take your time. I'd prefer a thorough reply over a prompt one. Besides, I'm kind of in the same boat. I'll log on and read a post and simply not have the time/energy to respond right away. I think the best replies are glacial anyway. More akin to the letter writing of a bygone era.

    ACT test scores for US students drop to new 30-year low

    It isn't a race to the bottom.

    What do you think about wicker?

    No. If you want to keep saying Cage Wicker Man is the worst movie, you should at least test the hypothesis. It's actually fun and campy. It is so bad that it's good. So I promise time well spent. But, yeah. My claim is that it is FAR worse than Cage's remake of Wicker man. It is the worst...

    What do you think about wicker?

    So, you think that the Nicholas Cage version of Wicker man was worse than the Nightmare on Elm Street remake?

    ACT test scores for US students drop to new 30-year low

    I agree, this is troubling. But I don't think it counts as a failure of our public education system. Let's just examine the phrase, "30 year low." So 30 years ago it was this bad then, right? That's the 90s. Hardly some dystopian hellscape. I think that some college has become too easy. If ACT...

    What do you think about wicker?

    People thought the Nick Cage version of the Wicker Man was horrible. I went into it expecting complete garbage. But, it actually wasn't that bad. People are too hard on the Nick Cage version. It ain't the best suspense/thriller ever made, but I've seen way, way, WAY worse. Wicker furniture is...
