Re: Impact of male god on human genders

Yes there is a basic division between the unchanging ineffable Absolute Why would anything be "unchanging", Nick? Is there anything ELSE you can point to that exhibits an unchanging quality/nature? If not, your claim is at odds with everything. a person’s psych matures they need a greater quality o...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

Your concept of commonality only includes good things people do for one another. It conveniently avoids the horrors and our hypocrisy which justifies it. The real commonality is that we live in Plato’s cave attached to the shadows on the wall and oblivious to the reality of the human condition whic...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

Lacewing I do not believe in a god, so there is no relationship with something that is not there. Does that mean you don’t believe in meaning? What provides a person’s meaning is their God. God is meaning. If money supplies a person’s need for meaning then money is their God. You write that you don...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

Lacewing, a question for you: IYO Is there an objective logical relationship between Man and God? I do not believe in a god, so there is no relationship with something that is not there. If there is, regardless of how it has been lost to humanity due to imagination created by the human condition, i...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

… I.C., you are much too rigid for me to talk with. But I really gave it a go! :D You say there is only one reality -- and for some reason you think that YOU know THAT ONE TRUE REALITY. Regardless of ALL OTHER PEOPLE throughout history who have experienced reality to be otherwise. YOU are a unique ...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

You said "the Atheist thinks he can avoid...". He's not going to be thinking that if he doesn't think there's anything to hide from. Well, you see it when you say to an Atheist," God will judge," and he responds with "Yeah, but I don't believe in God." Does he think his disbelief is a shield of som...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

If something has not been proven to YOU, would you say that your mind is closed to it...or simply that it has not been proven to you? The question is to you directly I.C. Are you able to answer it about yourself? Of course. But why would you believe me, if all I did was say it? Because it's simply ...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

If something has not been proven to YOU, would you say that your mind is closed to it...or simply that it has not been proven to you? I would say a couple of things. Firstly, its not possible that an Atheist can have "proven" that God does not exist... I asked you that simple question above, and yo...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

If there is any such thing as knowledge about God, then, it can come in only one way. From God. Left to our own devices, every one of us is simply in the dark. So, for non-theists, this statement above is as compelling and logical as saying: "If there is any such thing as knowledge about Santa, the...

Re: Islam is Right About Woman

[his opinions about what women should want and do, although he isn't one himself] For me, speaking as a woman, I am most thankful that I was not expected to follow a certain path in life. I wanted to explore my options. I was eager to work, even before completing school, so that I could have my own...

Then there is the other kind of bonding between adults, the 'real deal', which it turns out is a male emotion. That's something you can not comprehend.
How do you know?

Re: Islam is Right About Woman

No, it doesn't depend on pespective. Many men are shallow trash, but there is literally a form of love between adults that many men do experience, and women don't. Women have no idea that men experience this kind of emotion and bonding. Well, many women are shallow -- but there are also women who u...

Re: Islam is Right About Woman

Generally, women are incapable of love between adults (this is something women can not comprehend and are totally unaware of), and are also cognitively inferior (especially in the abstract thinking department, which men more or less equate with intelligence). Women also don't exist as a very centra...
