Re: Secular Spirituality

"Secular spirituality." :lol: Gawd, I love oxymorons. :lol: Don't people use dictionaries anymore? It's not an oxymoron. You would recognize this if you make time and effort to read and reflect rather than reflexively react. That answers my question. :mrgreen: Note: I didn’t say a secular person ca...

(Life) does not need to be known to be what it is.

There is no one here to know.

Re: REFUTE - my argument that a 'God' is more likely to exist.

Thus the argument I am making is that over time, a 'God' is more likely to eventuate than not, and that this has already occurred. Eternity is time-transcending, not time-everlasting. Therefore, God “eventuating” is a way of understanding something that has always been, but still one that has to be...

Re: REFUTE - my argument that a 'God' is more likely to exist.

The First Law Of Thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed It says nothing about God creating energy and there is no reason to think that is true No current cosmological model exists that can falsify the notion of a past infinite Universe A past infinite Universe would not re...

Re: The act of creation is logically impossible or God is subject to time

There are two states of affairs when it comes to act creation. These two state of affair are: (1) God only and (2) God and creation. The second state of affair follows the first one so there must be a substance which separate these state of affairs so called time, otherwise the act of creation is i...

Re: Indifference means that there is no God

The OP is just silly rhetoric full of presuppositions. It took an atheist like me to pinpoint the flaw in the OP, rather than do what you do — just throw out an unsupported rhetorical one-liner and call it a day. It’s not clear that God can be an infinite number of ways, if he exists. If he can be ...

Re: The Kalam cosmological argument - any objections ?

How does "recognition/relization" differ to 'faith'? It doesn’t. But don’t be fooled into thinking that faith is blind. This is from Fides et Ratio : Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to ...

Re: The Kalam cosmological argument - any objections ?

Here we must distinguish between “theistic personalism” and “classical theism.” For a theistic personalist like Craig, God is a person like us; he's just far more powerful. For classical theists, God is transpersonal, not a person, nor does he have emotions like humans. God isn’t like us at all. A ...

Re: The Kalam cosmological argument - any objections ?

1. Observation.
2. Mathematical analysis.
3. Hypothesis.
So you’re a proponent of scientism/positivism/objectivism? Funny. I always thought it takes all place in the subjective mind. If it was as simple as you say it is, consensus would be much easier

Re: The Kalam cosmological argument - any objections ?

Craig is a professional liar. People who feel the need to speak in gibberish are only doing it because they have something to hide. Many professions do this. He claims to 'know' there are no dinosaurs. Has he searched every inch of the planet? How does he know this? His argument: There is a univers...

Re: The Kalam cosmological argument - any objections ?

It's not to say I agree with the argument, because obviously I don't as I'm an atheist. It's just apparent to me that many have misunderstandings about it, which is natural given the way it makes you think about the concept of an infinite past in such a different way. I have a few different objecti...
