Re: Can good God do evil?

Erm... if god is good, he won't do evil...in this case he is not omnipotent. His actions are curtailed by a whole set of activities.

If god is omnipotent, he will do both good and evil.

Re: THE SPECIES PARADOX

In Europe any kid knows the precise answer to: ....... how life starts from inanimate, dead matter Do they know this? Depends on how you define knowledge. If on the same level as knowing that the #5 bus goes at a certain time at a certain stop plus or minus two minutes, then yes, they know this. Bu...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Isaiah 45:7: I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Where does it mention the "creation" of the concept "good"? That's the important feature. The idea of a created "evil" is easy -- anything that is "not good" fits the bill. But where i...

Re: THE SPECIES PARADOX

This thread is a prime example of the travesty that the North American high school education system has become. In Europe any kid knows the precise answer to: how does speciation occur, how life starts from inanimate, dead matter, and how there is no "first bird" or "first pig" etc. You guys suffer ...

Re: So what's not to like

Lacewing My response was based on what has been written about him in the Bible. Apparently he felt that his Father deserted him -- he asked "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" And apparently he also begged his god to not go through with the plan that would result in his death. A good examp...

Re: Hi ! Mohamed - Morocco

Suppose that the ultimate moral code (deontologically ethical code) dictates that it is not right to deprive a person from their freedom why is this ultimate? Is it written in a big book or something? AND dictates that it is right to punish a thief who steals goods of value V under circumstances C ...

No, our thoughts are all funny. You'd better become funny or else. When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Re: One for the loons.

an infinitely small section of space An infinitely small section of space is non existent so what you mean is infinitesimally small This is not just mere semantics because in science language has to be as precise as possible What do you call a geometric point? I call it an infinitely small three di...

Re: Hi ! Mohamed - Morocco

By the way, for the problems raised regarding law and morality, one of the outlets I can think of is legal interpretivism : that is, to consider that whatever a law dictates must be morally true. A veritably haphazard and not logical assumption; it sounds more like a forced axiom. A connection betw...

Re: Hi ! Mohamed - Morocco

. Your feeling, that there is an ultimate moral code that is incongruous with law, I am sorry, that idea is a bit foreign to me. Thanks for sharing your ideas. Let's consider a case study : Suppose we have two legislators in two well-developed countries L1 and L2 : Let's say that we have an Ultimat...

Re: One for the loons.

An infinite amount of energy is simply impossible as that would be greater than the energy of the entire Universe Well, yes, but it could be generated from a quantum energy that is contained in an infinitely small section of space.

Re: One for the loons.

Please don't ask me for details. I am hopeless in both quantum mechanics and formal logic. Well, there's a load of crazy shit we haven't worked out. The whole point of this thread is that anyone who thinks they've worked it all out is a loony. Here's one who has. An accountant friend of mine at a s...
