Re: Christianity

Then there are the apologists like you. Well, I have things to say on all those questions you floated. They're reallly just the routine ones, and not anywhere so astonishing as you seem to imagine. I mean, seriously -- can you actually be telling yourself that in 2,000 years of the greatest minds i...

Re: Christianity

P.S. -- Now, this is better. Now we're talking. You seem to have resolved to get over your ridiculous, pouty sensitivity is how I'd put it. Nothing at all has changed on my end. You've made a change on yours and, as long as it lasts, I commend you. Be strong! Heh. Wow. :D Can't take a win, eh? Well...

Re: Christianity

And is that where you are, too? Are you a "red-pilled" ex-Democrat, as they say? The example I presented to you, above, was for other purposes (see that post). I was asking because of your mention of people like Rubins and Peterson, as well as Bork and Weaver. There's not much in any of them that t...

Re: Christianity

This Christian brother does what Jesus is said never to have done: I laugh. So let me get this straight: you don't think "Christian" is defined by what Christ did (and taught). But you think that whether or not I'm a good Christian is defined by what Christ did. Which way is it? Is Christ relevant ...

Re: Christianity

My guess: To keep the discussions as far removed from this... 1] a demonstrable proof of the existence of the Christian God I've discussed this here, at length, in other threads...and even made some references to it in this one. So that's not a very good theory. ...where are the posts... Go and loo...

I bid thee, what so troubles my Christian brothers that they should quarrel and fight as they do?

Re: To Immanuel Can

How does karma is calculated and applied to life of people? That's a big question, and again, it's part of the "whole worldview" that is necessary to Hinduism and Buddhism. It has to do with the idea of a division between the spirtual and the material, and "the God," i.e. their ultimate cosmic "one...

Re: Christianity

It's up to you, then, whether you want to reform that old block of stuff, pulling out the urgent features, or decide it really wasn't all that important in the first place. My impression is that you have just had a teenager's meltdown . Wow. Are you ever wrong. :lol: Yes, yes...you've upset and ter...

Re: Christianity

I would prefer to think we could stop the nonsense and get back to important things. But that will depend. Man, you drive a hard bargain! Harder still. I'm not done. The following is what I would like to discuss. I removed the *black line* but the third-person pronouns remain. I see a lot of mischa...

Re: Christianity

Well, if this is the sum of it, I'm losing interest in this level of conversation. It's not sufficiently stimulating for me. I have only so much time to invest, and this conversation is turning into a questionable investment. We're not exchanging ideas anymore...you've dragged it down to ad homs an...

Re: Christianity

Are you not at least a little red-faced at your choice of example? Are you not at all conscious of its manifest vileness? Am I to suppose you only accidentally made the incident so nasty and specific? The example was chosen very consciously. I know that. I know much more than you think I do. But I'...

Re: To Immanuel Can

Deceptive! That is absurd. It is a matter of fact. Okay, you can say they're being "deceptive and absurd." But you don't have an answer for them, do you? You don't have proof that "movement" or "eating" are real things...it's just that, to you, they look that way. But the Hindu is going to say, "Of...
