Re: Philosophical questions

Nice of you to say so. I completely forgot this post. Now that you reminded me of it, I confess, it barely sounds familiar though still of the same opinion. If all of reality, the seen and the unseen completely dissolves into a virtual Nothing, impurities will remain which I like to think of as inf...

Re: People want to be their own gods. Is that good or evil?

Evil. Why? I would say because the one true God declared through Moses and later Jesus "You shall have no other gods before me." Any attempts to overturn that are evil.

Re: Philosophical questions

why there is something rather than nothing? ...because nothing is even more inconceivable than something aside which there is always something hiding in nothing. Personally, I prefer nothing over something since the something you get is not usually what you wanted in the first place. The human race...

Re: Hello, I just arrived

Hey there. Pilgrim brings to mind 1620 and the Mayflower, John Wayne, Eric Clapton. I heard recently that an epidemic more than decimated Indian tribes along coastal North America before 1620. Something to check out one of these days. Yes, something to check out one of these days. So, tell me, what...

If Harbal is a retired astronaut, I'm a dragon tamer visiting from the Pleiades star cluster. :lol: Welcome Pilgrim! How's the weather at Pleiades star cluster, Lacey. :) It's beautiful! I would love to show you around. Let me know when you plan to be in the area in your space capsule. It's hard to...

Hello, I'm new to this discussion, but I admit I do not know what philosophical counseling is. I'm a licensed counselor, too. So, mind if I listen for a bit?

Re: In God We Trust

Politics aside, in the Old Testament, the kings who followed God's Law were blessed and so was the Nation of Israel. The kings who disobeyed God's Law were punished and the people suffered as a result. Case in point: 2 Kings 18:1-8. This details the good that King Hezekiah did and the rewards that f...

Greetings, I think your question is significant in a discussion of morals. Those promoting a life based on morals can gain strength for their argument when the question is answered well. Those against a moral life can devise "good reasons" to abandon morals. Both sides of the argument have many pos...
