Re: ARE THERE ANY SOCIALISTS HERE ?

blah, blah, blah You're such an idiot. Do you really not see it? I just watched Trump give a brilliant briefing outside the White House. His message to the lunatic socialists who have taken control of the Democrat Party and their sympathisers in the media who continually keep criticizing , insultin...

Re: An act of God

Perhaps Lacewing isn't talking about nature according to Naturalism. Maybe she has her own concept of what nature is. Maybe. But so what? If she has the idea that "Nature" has volition, wishes, design-intentions, preferences, arrangements, teleology, and so on, then she's anthropomorphizing nature....

Re: An act of God

Well, we must be careful not to imagine "nature" refers to some intelligence capable of creating a universe. If it means that, then you're back to God -- a supernatural intelligence that could plan, intend and execute a universe. Why do you leap to that conclusion? The concept of "God" suggests an ...

Re: Mannie

Sad, but true. Boo hoo. You love to feast on the rotting carcasses of your delusional stories -- pointing the finger at faceless labeled people you imagine to be the enemy. It's so incredibly absurd and self-serving, and you don't even see/admit it for what it is. Fascinating display of what you're...

You might want to work on those reading comprehension skills.
The link I provided includes information about man's effect. Your advice should be directed to yourself, as usual.

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

When people get to writing a lot of messages rife with references to "you" and containing insults, you can be pretty sure the discussion has been illegitimately redirected into the ad hominem. LW does that. Ah, the master snake speaks! :lol: My encouragement to you would be not to go with him/her o...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

God is divine, and I have the courage to say it. You told me to fuck off and then you keep engaging. Are you a last word freak? Asking you to explain your notions of "God" after you claimed that I was projecting false notions onto you, is not an attempt to have the last word. But your childish atte...

I do not have notions of a god, but you appear to... and based on your inability to describe your notions because you would rather just insist WHAT IS, it appears that your entire platform is shallow and contrived for self-gain. So far, it has been your own statements that have been immature and ex...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

The evidence suggests that your notions of God which you project onto others, and then judge others based on your own limiting understanding, beliefs, and projections, are immature and exclusionary.

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

I'm using the best words I know of to communicate ideas. What other words would you suggest? Did you comprehend what I was saying? For those such as yourself who insist on removing God from divine, super duper will do. Your good feelings about life are super duper. Those words don't at all portray ...

Your limitations in the use of language does not translate into a lack of comprehension in others.

Re: Lace

I think you're overstating it a bit, but, if you think I'm pickin' on you too much, I'll correct that: I'll never comment on you or posts again. In fact: I'll do you the favor of formally placing you on my ignore list (quite an honor for you cuz you'll be the only one on it...congrats!). Aww, don't...

Interesting (to me) how other folks in-thread, folks just as adamant as me, but on the opposite side, get no lecture from you.
They typically don't comment and misrepresent as much about me or my statements as you do.

Re: Lace

"I'm pointing out that your perspective is but one of countless" Yeah, I know. How could there be ONE VIEW/ANSWER for everyone? Who are you to tell other people what the view/answer should be for them? You have no clue HOW MANY WAYS there are of seeing and understanding life! Assigning labels to pe...
