Re: Numbers, what are they?

To the question,"how can an order be maintained when there is no one controlling it?" should be, Why does an origin in Nothing REQUIRE obeying a law of consistency? Order is dependent necessarily on Non-order to mean something by contrast. But if anything originates unordered (chaos of an infinity ...

Re: Numbers, what are they?

If the universe were chaotic instead of orderly, life couldn't exist. If life couldn't exist, humans could never have evolved. If humans had not evolved, there would have been nobody to conceive of gods. Therefore, the orderliness of the universe is responsible for Jehovah, Quetzalcoatl and all the...

Numbers, what are they?

As I was solving my calculus homework, a simple question popped into my mind.. What exactly is a number? How can something define our world like so? Is it real? because well..we can't see them, we can only calculate them, or rather is it only a system of some kind so that we can make sense of the th...

Re: God's immutability: OT vs. NT God, the same?

per the NT, Jesus was killed on a Saturday, no a Sunday. John is a day off verse the other Synopics. Actually according to the bible, Jesus died on Friday not on Saturday. He died before nightfall, it is as Jesus said to the good thief that " today you will be with me in paradise". Matt 27: 62 "The...

Re: God's immutability: OT vs. NT God, the same?

But there are also inconsistencies within the OT and within the NT Can you prove this statement? Because as far as I know, the OT and the NT is harmonious with each other. Though one did not have to sacrifice an offering because God has fulfil His prophesy about a saviour that will come (Jesus Chri...

Re: God's immutability: OT vs. NT God, the same?

they were written in different languages for different audiences -Imp I don't think your answer answers any of my question, I was asking for proves that justified God's divinity. Although the OT was written in Hebrew, Jews in Jesus time such as Paul understands the OT very well. Even Hebrew is basi...

God's immutability: OT vs. NT God, the same?

SoI was comparing the OT and NT. I knew that God's character is different, in OT he was really harsh to mankind, for example, His chosen people was the Israelites and all other nation cannot receive salvation. In the NT, Jesus was depicted as forgiving, teaches us to be kind to everyone and spread h...

Re: Is there a boundary on our free will?

Christians are always trying to absolve God of moral culpability in the fall by whipping out their favorite "free will!", or “ it’s all man’s fault”. That is "God gave us free will and it was our free willed choices that caused our fall. Hence God is not blameworthy." But this simply avoids God's c...

Is there a boundary on our free will?

I recently review the topic of cosmogony and of course I had to revisit the creation of human according the Bible, and a question was born; Man was created according to God's image (imago Dei) and we also inherit His behaviour (imitatio Dei), it is said that before the fall, human have an unblemishe...

Re: Postmodernism epistemology

Is it possible to obtain a fixed truth?

Many philosopher has debated the issue regarding truth along years since the ancient world, however it seems that each of them has a different approach in defining what "truth" is. In the middle ages for example, church is the one set the standard for what "truth" is. To the extent that they deem Ga...

Re: Secular worldview vs Christianity worldview

Hi, cicero: You can do that more simply: Anthropogyny, Teleology, Ethics. Those three will give you all the basic distinctive between worldviews. The rest are "accessories," because they are defined by the former three. There are many such schemes that have been proposed. James Sire has a book on h...
