Re: Concept versus Idea

A philosophical concept can be abstract and it is related to something empirical.
So God is a philosophical concept even by your standard (such as it may be).

Re: Evil Inherent in All and Active in a %

Give up all your "zombie parasite" nonsense, VA. For all you know, it may be that the "parasite" is a fragment of God dwelling within us and as a part of us and you're terrified of its unknowability.

Re: All Axioms, self evident truths, as Proof of God

For all we know the zombie parasites are in control of you and we should stay away to avoid an infection. I'm sure that's not the case because the zombie parasite is a superior life-form. :lol: For all we know the zombie parasites may be infected by veritas and they are struggling to survive, consi...

Re: All Axioms, self evident truths, as Proof of God

For all we know fallacies are pushed by zombie parasites so that there is division between peoples. Not wasting my time on this until you have fully understood [not necessary agree with] what the concept of "zombie parasites" represent. Nevertheless you get the point there is something in the human...

Re: All Axioms, self evident truths, as Proof of God

It seems to me the only true axiom is there are no true axioms. (An axiom is a definite point of reference, but reality itself is indefinite.) "True axiom" is an oxymoron. Axioms are gods. They are not to be questioned. You accept them or reject them on pragmatic considerations. Isn’t that what I s...

Greater activities of the mirror neurons that activate empathy and compassion rationally and with wisdom.
LOL! You are vain and deluded, my friend.
Throw in some arguments to substantiate your points.
Nah. You do that all by yourself. You don’t need my help.

Re: Theists Should Reflect What is Going Inside their Brain

Thus what is the whole set to neural activities that drive and sustain one in believing in a God? What is the whole set to neural activities that drive and sustain your disdain for theism?

Re: No God as a Quality and Quantity of God.

I exists. You exists Therefore God exists. What kind of logic is that? Mystical. "Its objective is not the acquisition of an end, but a participating in it. Participation , in a word, becomes not simply an alternative to knowledge – it altogether supersedes it. At best, “knowing”, to the mystic, is...

Re: No God as a Quality and Quantity of God.

...hence God as typeless reflects "no God" through this typeless nature as being true in the respect God is beyond existence and as being beyond existence reflects no existence. God is beyond being, and in these respects is beyond "nothing" and "being" and as such is both. I’ve been saying that sin...

Re: Why Liberals are better people than Conservatives

Oh the irony. If people are being shouted down on campuses, then the ones doing the 'shouting down' are not liberal. Which part of this is so hard for people (generally Americans, who started this downward spiral to illiteracy) to understand? Technically you’re right. They’re “leftists” (fascists),...

That's because Conservatives threaten everyone who disagree with their conservative opinions. Are you kidding? Wanna compare?
