Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

I know you don't enjoy responding to me, but I wish you would. I wish every God believer on this forum would respond to me, because all I'm interested in, is trying to find out what the God believers are actually seeing. Over the years I have spoken volumes to you regarding my beliefs (including il...

Come on now DAM, you know that I am not going to respond favorably to such nonsensical statements. So why do you even bother?

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

And what in the world makes you think that “St. Anselm, Descartes, and others” (mere humans) are the ultimate and infallible arbiters of the truth of God’s nature and motives? The fact that God trusts us, humans, to be able to tell that he's the "good" guy and Satan is the "bad" guy. We can thus im...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

I have not come across your link before. I will have a look at your detailed explanation later. Off hand , I can say your hidden creative source of this universe is not likely to be real. As Wittgenstein stated, “ Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent ” In this case of metaphysics, w...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

Now I am not implying that I can’t be wrong, but for more than a dozen years now, not only have I bored the members of this and other forums with my incessant (and illustrated) description of what I believe is the creative source of this universe ,...

Re: A Scientific Religion

Perhaps it is time to view God not as an omnipotent being, but rather as a personification of everything good about humankind, which we should strive to achieve one day. Instead of placing God above the universe/multiverse, maybe God should simply be a collection of all the good virtues that makes ...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

You are too arrogant and blinded to think I have created a strawman. Yeah, well, be careful there Mr. Pot, because based on your forum persona, you are in no position to accuse any of us Kettles of being arrogant or blind. I did not invent nor create the above points, I was merely presenting what t...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

You are too hasty in the above. Note I qualified, the ' supposed -God'. Since I was debating with IC who is a Christian, then his supposed-God of Christianity which supposes omni-whatever cannot exist due to the illogical and contradictory claims against the reality of evil. The point is by default...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

It is not from my thinking. That claim is made by “St. Anselm, Descartes, and others” when they are cornered with the claim their God is limited and inferior. Your answer has nothing to do with the point I was making in my question. It may be true that the claims that St. Anselm, Descartes, and oth...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

I believe this is the critical point your overlooked: It is not me who listed those omni-features for God but your highest regarded theologians [St. Anselm, Descartes and others] who assigned your supposed-God the maximally or whatever omni-Good qualities as an Ontological God. And what in the worl...

Re: Donald Hoffman: There is No Objective Reality

In the case of humans and the emergence of reality , what is behind and enable the emergence of reality are the neural algorithms in the physical brain and body which is deterministically connected back to the Big Bang , which spiral back to the emergence of reality . That’s quite a speculative str...

Re: Donald Hoffman: There is No Objective Reality

Noted your interesting points, except the following point; Hoffman did not imply humans LITERALLY create “...any physical object that we see - in the moment that we see it...” as if like waving a wand and things appear. It is more sophisticated than that. Yes, it is more sophisticated than that, an...

In his book, The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes and video, Donald Hoffman | The Case Against Reality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HFFr0-ybg0 Donald Hoffman postulated there is such thing as Objective Reality. At around the 12:25 minute mark of the video, Hoffman...
