Re: An act of God

Can the Supreme Being (assuming such were to exist) tell us the truth about Himself, even if we can't find it from our end? And being, by definition, the Supreme Being, He would have to be able to, wouldn't He? Perhaps IF there was a "source something" that was a "being" who thought in our terms an...

Re: An act of God

... Thanks for your response. I think we are speaking two very different languages. My attempts to show another perspective are met with being drug back into the realm you are focused on, even though I've suggested that such human-created ideas/beliefs very likely do not apply to a larger perspecti...

Re: An act of God

What makes you think that the human concepts of "order" and "chaos" are to be applied? What species's concepts would you like applied? If not our own concepts, then whose? Are you evading the point on purpose...or do I truly baffle you? Rephrased: Why do "order" and "chaos" need to be applied? What...

Re: An act of God

anybody who anthropomorphizes "Nature" has done that. If you haven't done that, fine: but then you must believe mere randomness produces cosmic order out of chaos. The minute you impose a regularity on that, you've anthropomorphized the concept. What makes you think that the human concepts of "orde...

Re: ARE THERE ANY SOCIALISTS HERE ?

blah, blah, blah You're such an idiot. Do you really not see it? I just watched Trump give a brilliant briefing outside the White House. His message to the lunatic socialists who have taken control of the Democrat Party and their sympathisers in the media who continually keep criticizing , insultin...

Re: An act of God

Perhaps Lacewing isn't talking about nature according to Naturalism. Maybe she has her own concept of what nature is. Maybe. But so what? If she has the idea that "Nature" has volition, wishes, design-intentions, preferences, arrangements, teleology, and so on, then she's anthropomorphizing nature....

Re: An act of God

Well, we must be careful not to imagine "nature" refers to some intelligence capable of creating a universe. If it means that, then you're back to God -- a supernatural intelligence that could plan, intend and execute a universe. Why do you leap to that conclusion? The concept of "God" suggests an ...

Re: Mannie

Sad, but true. Boo hoo. You love to feast on the rotting carcasses of your delusional stories -- pointing the finger at faceless labeled people you imagine to be the enemy. It's so incredibly absurd and self-serving, and you don't even see/admit it for what it is. Fascinating display of what you're...

You might want to work on those reading comprehension skills.
The link I provided includes information about man's effect. Your advice should be directed to yourself, as usual.

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

When people get to writing a lot of messages rife with references to "you" and containing insults, you can be pretty sure the discussion has been illegitimately redirected into the ad hominem. LW does that. Ah, the master snake speaks! :lol: My encouragement to you would be not to go with him/her o...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

God is divine, and I have the courage to say it. You told me to fuck off and then you keep engaging. Are you a last word freak? Asking you to explain your notions of "God" after you claimed that I was projecting false notions onto you, is not an attempt to have the last word. But your childish atte...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

I do not have notions of a god, but you appear to... and based on your inability to describe your notions because you would rather just insist WHAT IS, it appears that your entire platform is shallow and contrived for self-gain. So far, it has been your own statements that have been immature and ex...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

The evidence suggests that your notions of God which you project onto others, and then judge others based on your own limiting understanding, beliefs, and projections, are immature and exclusionary. I do not have notions of a god, but you appear to... and based on your inability to describe your no...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

I'm using the best words I know of to communicate ideas. What other words would you suggest? Did you comprehend what I was saying? For those such as yourself who insist on removing God from divine, super duper will do. Your good feelings about life are super duper. Those words don't at all portray ...
