I know what the NTS fallacy means.
Great! :D Then from now on, you'll be using it correctly, I suppose.

I'm not holding my breath, though....

Free will is an invention of religion; wholly political, and has no metaphysical basis.
I guess all the experts are wrong...https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/freewill/ :lol:

Good post (I do give credit where it's due).
And I say thanks where thanks is appropriate.

So thanks.

Yes, this raises the question of the relationship of the elect to predestination.
Nope. Calvinistic Predestination isn't even relevant here. This "elect" is Messianic and Jewish, and the passage is explicitly referring to the end times. You can see that from the context.

It is a challenge to see if I can get him to understand that Free Will does not exist.
It's almost like he has the free will to choose to disbelieve you... :lol:

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

Some people are indeed more like dominoes If that's so, then you're admitting that some are not: i.e. that free will exists. Terry Jones is on my mind at the moment. There is no doubt that had I not seen Monty Pythons rip apart the establishment and those endemic cultural assumptions, I would not b...

Re: Can a man really turn into a woman?

I think that the person thinking up this bit of nonsense is incapable of any sort of mutability in his thinking. A person that finds comfort in portraying the world as black and white; his mind bound by the "no true Scotsman" fallacy, rigid, and predictable. Before citing a fallacy, a person should...

Re: The Growing Power of Feminism

"... to deceive, if possible, even the elect." How well do you read? "If possible," could be a rare event. Good catch, W. Or, more literally, an impossible one. It's the attempt to deceive that is the subject of that sentence. This passage is in Mark 13, speaks of many false messiahs, of various wa...

Re: Can a man really turn into a woman?

No, a man can't become a woman, but he can mimick what he considers to be a stereotypical caricature of a woman. Well, yeah... In fact, when a man says, "I think I may be a woman," how does he know ? :shock: That is, how does he know what being a woman actually feels like? How does he, who has only...

The way you replied showed a surprising lack of humility by insinuating that you would not fall victim to what the overwhelming majority would.
Sorry...you're not getting it. I can't help that, I guess.

Of course you see it differently. I think you are mistaken, which is nothing to worry about. Most people think I'm mistaken.
And there, an end of it, then.

You have my reasons.

Re: Americas

fact is Ukraine is terrified of Russia - and is LYING when they say they were not pressured by Trump to invesigate Bidon. Yeah, this is what the Democrats say. Unfortunately for them, not only do the Ukrainians say it didn't happen, but the aid in question was not held back! That means that if Trum...

Re: The problem with Conservatism

lets talk about what Jon had to say in the book you reference (I've not read it). It's worth a read. Basically, he says that the Left misunderstands the Right, and the Right misunderstands the Left. I'm afraid I can't do his full argument justice here. It's significant and complicated. But you can ...
