Regarding infinite beings and origins and relating that mathematically or geometrically, Point 0 (zero) is a point of origin on a line or plane and by nature represents a point of intersection by other points and lines. Plus, it's all relative. Imagine a number line 0,1,3. If you move the point of o...

The problem with the concept of self-evident is that what is considered self-evident to you may not to me. I assume self-evident means not needing to be demonstrated or explained; obvious. But, what if something is not obvious to me or other groups of people? Let's look at this. https://www.popular...

Explain to me how Tulsi Gabbard was relevant to the topic? Also, can you explain to me how a veteran who served two tours in Iraq is a traitor. https://i.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/022/524/tumblr_o16n2kBlpX1ta3qyvo1_1280.jpg https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/183/103/alens...

To crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

Sounds sadistic, murdering those animals to atone for sins.Why would a kind God ask anyone to do that?Doing good works would be better.Also sending your only son to die for a bunch of sinners.What’s up with the blood?How would a blood sacrifice atone for anything? Well, yeah, but that's why those p...

You can thank mankind itself for bringing down the punishment of death via the original sin. Read Genesis, the first book in the Bible. God originally created man to be happy with Him forever, but because Adam and Eve listened to Satan and disobeyed God, they screwed things up for the rest of us. A...

Predictable in that somebody who thinks your assertion is wrong has said so and provided rational material to back it up. You tried to discredit counter-argument by applying a pejorative label to it before it was even born. Being short of time doesn't entitle you to be scurrilous. I'm not convinced...

Sad to see you've run out of logical arguments again. Nah. It’s just I think the discussion has run its course, plus I’ve lost interest and my job is placing a lot of demands on me right now. I suppose I could just resort to copy/paste responses, though I’ve never found that particularly interestin...

Of course, I think I can “sense” the knee-jerk response accusing the authors of bias and such well on its way… Interesting that rather than wait and see, you've already labelled future criticism as "knee-jerk." In doing so you're revealing more about yourself than about this thing you're ...

I think "ability" and "sense" are both good words describe it, with the latter being perhaps the best word for it. It seems logical that some people have senses that are better attuned to certain things than others, and people have the ability to suppress or reinterpret their pe...

But when I looked, I found no such hole They usually don't find it in themselves, but are generally happy to accept it exists in most humans (some in that reddit thread accept the "longing" exists but believe it is artificial rather than natural). It's a way to explain the power and persi...

(CNN)New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he will resign, effective in 14 days, one week after the release of a report by the state attorney general that found he sexually harassed 11 women, ending his decade leading the state and heading off a potential impeachment by New York's Democratic-led ...

Why would anyone want to be ( or demand to be) worshipped.That would be annoying. Makes me think of a NextGen episode where Picard is worshipped by the natives. Sounds sort of narcissistic to me.That’s the last kind of god I want. That was a great episode. The demand for worship has nothing to do w...

but it must be an amazing comfort to be convinced on a deep level that you're not going to die. Sometimes the truth really hurts and you wish you hadn't discovered it. Oh? Why say that if you are an atheist? One downside of being Christian and knowing that heaven exists is the feeling of despair th...
