They are all really corollaries of First Cause. So there is really just one. But the other 3 are very similar -- first cause of motion in space, first cause of artistic design, and first cause of purposeful design.

Re: What is the purpose of God?

Besides faith in Philosophy, I presume that many of those who are destined to become the elect of God receive their own epiphanies from God. I presume that because that has also been my own experience. You cannot prove to another person that there is a God. You cannot give another person faith eithe...

Re: What is the purpose of God?

Hi, thedoc: I'm going to take exception with you this time, maybe. Every time creationists have come up with an example of irreducible complexity that science has addressed, science has shown the evolutionary trail of the development of that feature. Not remotely true, I'm afraid. You must not have...

Re: What's Going On?

How was he responsible? You would need to ask him. Too late now though. That is one of the problems with successful suicides, the victim is not around to answer the important questions. Also true of the mass murder suicide in Orlando too. The shooter is not around to answer "why?" In his case it wa...

Re: What's Going On?

Police and military use their guns for suicide more often than the average person because they have learned to solve problems with the weapon.

It's unfortunate.

Perhaps he feels responsible somehow.

Perhaps he was.

Re: What is the purpose of God?

If you wake up in a pile of horse manure you are going to wonder either how you got there or where the horsie is? That's the difference between an optimist and a pessimist. Only a terrible fool would think they evolved inside the pile of manure from star dust. With 7 billion people on the planet no...

Re: ~ Why I Invented Language ~

. Human beings are extremely selfish, stupid, and mean creatures. Yet we are nothing if not liars. If humans were to be best described in one word that word would be - liar. It is said that the ONLY reason we invented language is so that we could lie to each other better. So that we could look each...

Re: What Makes Human Beings Unique?

If I had to hypothesize an explanation for this, I would first harken back to the 4 classic "proofs of God" -- - First Cause - Prime Mover - Artistic Artificer - Purposeful Designer. That's because everyone has got to start someplace with everything in Philosophy. . Nice logical post :) However I d...

Nothing wrong with that just that they don't make very good soldiers in combat.
I'll bet they make good cannon fodder.
A virile female would be more useful in an infantry unit than an effeminate male would.

Re: What is the purpose of God?

Oh, and don't talk to me of a bigger picture. Humans need that excuse. A God with unlimited powers can CREATE a new bigger picture. No, I wouldn't do that. I'm aware of the Leibnizian argument, but like you, I find it leaves me a bit cold. At best, I would say it is one...rather insufficient, and c...

Re: Do humans cherish what we destroy?

Yet another topic you know nothing about. What a surprise. You have no justification to jump to that hasty conclusion either. Either you think you are smart or you know nothing at all.

Re: Do humans cherish what we destroy?

disturbed by gruesome pictures of dead bodies from war? don't play call of duty yolo -Imp Photos of the dead are revolting to a normal person with empathy, yes. It takes a very hard heart to kill. You must first hate your enemy before you can kill him or her. There is absolutely no excuse for killi...
