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

As you already KNOW I neither believe nor disbelieve ANY thing,... Why in the world do you assume that I know (or even care) whether you believe or disbelieve anything? But I do NOT assume absolutely any thing like this at all. I was NOT even thinking, let alone talking, about absolutely any thing ...

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

_______ I’m pretty sure I’m going to regret this, but what the heck. Clearly, I am still waiting for a Hell-believing Christian or Muslim to demonstrate the courage of their convictions and chime-in on this subject. I will do MORE than just "chime in". I will give the actual EVIDENCE and PROOF of HO...

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 impossibl...

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

As I have stated many times in this forum, it is time for a new “material/spiritual paradigm” to replace the nonsense of the old paradigm. I agree. I am not sure, however, that most religions and their followers can be free enough from their stories and the payoffs of those stories -- to be clear a...

Re: When it comes to “public entertainment,” how far is too far?

You guys are completely nuts. This conversation is nothing but moral panic and rose tinted nostalgia . Also historical ignorance... Rome was a bloodthirsty empire that thrived and expanded on an orgy of violence. Then it became Christian and the Church attempted to crack down on all the lascivious ...

Re: When it comes to “public entertainment,” how far is too far?

If you watched Ozzie & Harriet, then you are most likely familiar with historical events. Perhaps you recall the decline of Roman society into a decadent society of hedonism and the like. Yes, commonsense, I vividly recall that after watching a brand new episode of Ozzie & Harriet, I would step out...

Where are you finding these post-able pictures with the coding at the bottom? Google images. The coding comes from the machine I use. I work off an old ipad.

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

Just out of curiosity, though, name a few “sins” that you think warrant a stint in Hell. There's only one, as I reckon it: deprivin' a person of his life, liberty, or property without just cause.

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

I agree with gaffo... I have no problem with Hell as a place to serve a sentence for sins. ...the catholics have such a penalty box: limbo I think they call it. Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle wrote a couple of novels wherein hell was much like the catholic limbo. You could leave when ready to. Hell,...
