Re: God and Evil

You are so full of it that it hurts to read you. Nothing personal? You would have done better to have avoided the ad hominem in your first response to me, then apologised when it became evident you had misread me, or more probably mixed me up with some other poster. But instead you carry on digging...

Sorry you are way way off.
I guess you are right.

My simile only explains that extremes can be temporarily irritating.

US country men who go to tropical climates for a week or two for holidaying, always get Montezuma's revenge, that is, upset stomach and violent diarrhea, for a few days, after which t...

Re: Arising_uk's school philosophy

In school you only learn calculative and memorizing things, not to question information, ask one self or others if there's more to it than what seems, etc etc, therefore with philosophy ones metal skills will increase. It's on par with what computers can do on low lvl, with abstract and holistic th...

Re: God and Evil

Yes, sir. (Or madam.) I will now buy your story that "evil" means actually "good", as in God says "I create evil" means "I create good." 'Good?'' I suggested the better translation was 'disaster' or 'calamity'? Where have I ever said it should be understood as 'good'? You have created some fantasy ...

Re: How to prove god exists

Sorry, but that link does not lead to any thread on How to prove God exists. So, at this point in time, I still have not seen my thread which was for me a way to find out whether the moderators here had allowed or dis-allowed my very first thread to come out. Dear Yrreg, there is a clear-cut way of...

Re: God and Evil

There is an answer to everything. Any position can be justified using the bible and I've been doing it for years. I can produce verses to paint God in any light you want. If one verse doesn't fit, I'll find another translation or refer to the Greek or simply say "it's not meant to be literal" or wh...

Re: God and Evil

Well there's your substantiation for Christianity. :-), well, well. I see this instance instead as a rare but clear-sighted insight into the forces of nature and adapting it for its own use by Christian mythologists. Not QUITE a substantiation for Christianity. Or transsubstantiation thereof, hehe....

Re: God and Evil

"It may be illogical, but they believe man and the devil created evil via their own freewill." This is incredibly interesting. The statement is NOT illogical, although it goes against what is said in the scriptures. It is well possible, albeit not true, since we have scriptural evidence that renders...

Re: God and Evil

"Obey me or else you are ousted from the tribe" is actually a very solid anthropological event. It happens with all kinds of mammalian species where the individuals form hierarchical societies: humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, lions, wolves. If you don't obey the leader of the pack, you are chased fro...

Re: God and Evil

She would say that God does not punish, but the devil punishes because we are disobedient to God. She has an answer to everything. The devil WANTS us to be disobedient to god. From moment one: "EAT THAT APPLE." So obviously it's not the devil that punishes us. If you get a chance, you could say tha...

Re: God and Evil

It's not that god brought anything new to the table, but he drew a line in the sand. How can you say that, man? According to the faithful, god created everything. He brought EVERYTHING to the table. He drew the line? Heck, no, he created evil, and he says it so in an unmistakably worded sentence. Y...

For a while I was not sleeping well. Now I am sleeping 14 to 16 hours a day. Don't tell me that's unhealthy. I KNOW it's not healthy.
