    What makes your God a God?

    We may be at some variance with definitions here. I'm aware from my own reflections about myself, some of them stimulated by reading about the results of scientific experiments, that the non-conscious part of my brain does the lion's share of the heavy lifting, and is inclined to tell the...

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    We can agree, I suspect, that Paul was something of a dingbat.

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    But not everyone sees it that way.

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    To be irrefutable, it must be supported by evidence of the highest quality. Evidence that I'm not aware of. So please lay it out for me. The materialist principle that humans have evolved with particular moral tendencies demonstrated by experiment seems to have escaped you. We know that...

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    I'm not in a position to comment on how things are these days, since I only encounter the odd rare example at a funeral ─ it's been a while since I attended a wedding. But I had no reason to doubt the sincerity of the people active in the church in my childhood. As I mentioned, except for my...

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    I came from a mildly theistic background. I set out an outline >here<.

    What makes your God a God?

    Would it then be fair to suggest that the only manner in which your God is known to exist is as an idea?

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    Human sacrifice, you say? Isn't that outright barbaric?

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    Wow! I'm glad you found out in time! Otherwise you might be living some other exact same life.

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    "Learned" in what sense? And incidentally, where, do you say, we're going?

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    What, precisely, have you found? How much of what you found would you say came from your acculturation?

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    I thought about what you asked and said. Perhaps you'll think about what I said. Of course when one's defending a position, one tends to think in terms only of winning the debate. On this occasion, perhaps you might like to wonder if what I said is accurate, and if not, why not. That's how I...

    Ahm, why?

    Where does Donald Trump stand on the issue of genocide?

    My problem with Trump is that he's a raving narcissist, a routine and habitual liar deceiver bully and bulls*** expert, who also happens to be found guilty of rape by a jury, and who lives in memory as the most ignorant, chaotic, arbitrary and self-servingly corrupt president I can recall, a man...

    Why don’t you believe in God?

    The first problem ─ though I admit it took me a while to recognize it ─ is that God has no definition appropriate to a real being. That's to say, if we found a real suspect, there's no objective test that would determine whether this was God or not. Instead, God is defined in imaginary terms...

    Do you know anybody who you want to prove the paranormal to real bad?

    Thanks anyway for your reply. Sounds like a good idea. Were these marks bruises? Or what? How did you get rid of them?

    Do you know anybody who you want to prove the paranormal to real bad?

    I believe in the creeps (having had the experience), but the creeps is a response in humans to particular situations which at some relevant point in our evolution threatened particular danger, almost certainly connected with human or animal enemies in the night. It implies that there are...

    atheism and fear of death

    I'm naturally apprehensive about the process of my dying ─ there are better and worse ends to life ─ but I have no fear of being dead. As Ecclesiastes 9:4-6 puts it: He who is joined with all the living has hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they will...

    Revisiting Anslem

    Other way round. If mind is not produced by the (purely material) functions of the brain THEN you need to imagine a total category distinction between human thought &c and the brain without which there is no human thought,. As it stands, clearly thought / mind/ sensory input processing /...

    God... He or She?

    I've always used the pronoun [him] when referring to God, the square brackets indicating that the biological sex implied by the pronoun is not to be taken too seriously. It's no less suitable in this post, where I'm speaking from within the story. The problem is this. On the one hand, God is...
