Re: Nothing to something

Nothing to something is either logically possible or it is logically impossible. There is no need for God in the first case since the process of nothing to something is possible . Introducing God in the second case cannot help to have something out of nothing since the process is logically impossib...

Re: Here’s a question for anyone who believes in the existence of HELL:

There is the bigger picture per Religionists (they affirm eternal life yes?) that means no-one dies (their soul never dies). and so lets look at this logically - assuming we all are immoral (our souls are) - per Religionist view. so in fact if we are place here on this planet for a VERY short time ...

Re: What is the stupidest thing Trump has said?

Biden is clearly on fit via dementia, and is the weakest candidate the Democrats have offered - ever - even assuming he does not have dementia (which he does now) Between two evils, I'd choose a mild case of dementia (Biden) to demented (Trump) any time. If Biden picks a good Vice President who can...

Re: What is the stupidest thing Trump has said?

Sam Giancana, the Chicago mob boss was said to be indirectly associated with the Kennedys during JK's election campaign with Frank Sinatra being the go-between. That Sinatra had mob ties is indisputable. That relationship supposedly came apart when Robert Kennedy became Attorney General in JK's cabi...

so he failed the mob with the Bay of Pigs fiasco,
He "may" have been killed by the Mafia, does anyone REALLY know except for the few who did? There could have been a very different reason starting with Robert Kennedy and his crusade against organized crime.

And tell me, where is it that Jesus was put into practice?

i don't like folks that pick and choose - either you support the 1st or you don't, its that simple. You don't have to worry about that.

Re: Here’s a question for anyone who believes in the existence of HELL:

Sorry, Dubious, but reason and rationality have no place in this scenario. Yes, I realize that but you asked a specific question... With that in mind, the question is: would you, Christian or Muslim,... (or anyone else who believes in the existence of the heaven/hell scenario) ...be willing to reli...

God given rights. Do you really have any?

That's good, Henry. The only exception might be when, if a theist uses his own beliefs as an argument for some philosophical concept, like human nature being depraved, for example, it might be necessary to address the theistic belief to address the philosophical mistake. ...you mean like the theist...
