Re: I am who I am

Everybody is himself/herself so they can say I am who I am. Interestingly this phrase doesn't give more than any obvious information. I am wondering why people consider this as a definition of God. It is not a definition of God. No, it’s merely another example of humans demonstrating their clueless...

Re: IQ

_______ The following is a lesson in practicality for someone who refuses to properly use the quote system for the sake of the reader: I do not think it is a fallacy to question why a person with an IQ of 140 seems incapable of using the QUOTES function!!! I use the included site feature of not pars...

Re: What causes muslims to be violent

In Paradise if we make it there, God willing, the pleasures are tremendous indeed as described by the messengers of God, the Almighty. In Islam, Prophet Jesus(peace be upon him) is one of the great messengers of God, the Almighty. The greater one's level of piety in this world, the greater the rewa...

Re: Peace is only through Islam.

As it pertains to the topic of this thread, I have already offered a few of my suggestions as to what causes Muslims to be violent.

Re: How can a Christian support Trump?

I do not believe that Trump is the antichrist. My point is, if I believed in biblical prophecy would it not be logical to say that Trump is the antichrist? Keep in mind that the Bible also proclaims this: “...as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby ...

Re: On the subject of “Eternalism” and the “Block Universe” theory...

Let me add that the quantum world is, I believe, always at the top. I’m not sure of what you mean by the quantum world always being “at the top.” What does that mean? It's a (still uncertain) "presence" to be settled ... If I am interpreting your suggestion properly, then I guess I would have to sa...

Re: Trump - a puzzling enigma

Awesome post, Seeds... Thank you, commonsense (and atto). Now I am not naming any names here, but, again, I believe that the problem we are dealing with in this thread (and with the world of us humans in general) is related to my earlier suggestion: It is a reflection on my constant harping about h...

Re: Trump - a puzzling enigma

I was simply trying to show how easy it is (even in modern times) for a demented (yet charismatic) human to capture and control the minds of other humans into thinking that he is their savior when, in fact, he is about to lead them into hell. well, the last guy to fit that bill didn't exactly lead ...

Re: Trump - a puzzling enigma

Those are all good points (although attempting to defeat Hitler in a horrific war can hardly be considered as doing nothing about the situation). The Nazi's treatment of people never came into the reason for WW11. Wars are about power and money. If they have given a damn about people then they coul...

Re: Trump - a puzzling enigma

Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people And hypocritical minds offer-up platitudes that are meant to insult others while ignoring the fact that it could just as readily be applied to their own behavior. I mean, wasn’t it you who “discussed” the Darth Vade...
