Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

The Universe is composed from two phases. The first is 4D ordered, fixed, condensating, crystalizing, growing History and the second is unknown, not causal, mysterious world of ideas, the Future. The History crystalizes (does not expand) from the Future. 3D phase border, surface of History is livin...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

But this is what you BELIEVE and NOT actually true at all. I am just asking a question. As I stated this thread is about the origin of evil given the fact that the story within the Bible is literal. You keep saying; God created this, God created that. But you do NOT even believe there is such a thi...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Absolutely EVERY thing is relative to the observer. So, if you see there is an 'evil nature', then so be it, AND, If creating a so called "evil nature" is good OR evil, then that is solely depended upon YOU. But, remember, you HAVE TO BE able to define the words you are using, otherwise this is ALL...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

But what do you believe? It does NOT matter what "other" people believe. Most of those beliefs will be just flat out obviously WRONG anyway. I think that we are evolving interacting minds. Do you KNOW the difference between the two questions; 1. What do you 'believe'? And, 2. What do you think? If ...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Sure, provide me with a list of the things that you believe, then I will provide you with examples of the ones, which are obviously wrong, to me. By the way, thank you for wanting to obtain some clarity on what it is that I am saying. 1) We are minds, 2) we interact through physical,... I think the...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Was there ever a point in evolution where a purely not knowing the difference between right and wrong animal evolved into a more thinking and knowing animal? Are you aware that the story of adam and eve is just a story about evolution, which explains when an animal evolved into and became the what ...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Well, Biblically, mankind was not created "partly evil." Genesis makes that abundantly clear. It says, "And God saw that it was good ," not "God saw it was good and evil ." My argument is based on the sin of pride that Satan committed. Satan must have an evil nature in order to feel pride. Okay, ma...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

I don't think so. In the Biblical account, once makes the bad choice, one's nature changes as a result -- from "free" to "capable of evil." That's what's implied by that phrase, "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." Prior to that Adam and Eve had no knowledge of the possibility of evil at a...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

You are missing my point. I am not talking about choosing evil but feeling evil. One needs to have an evil nature to feel evil, pride for example. I don't think so. In the Biblical account, once makes the bad choice, one's nature changes as a result -- from "free" to "capable of evil." That's what'...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

My argument is based on the sin of pride that Satan committed. Satan must have an evil nature in order to feel pride. The famous poet, John Milton, author of the great epic poem, Paradise Lost , described free will this way: "I made him just and right, Sufficient to have stood, though free to fall....

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Hang on, you stated that the Bible IS the word of God! I didn't mean that I believe that the Bible is the word of God. I meant that people believe that the Bible is the word of God. Owe. :) So NOT the direct word of God? I have no idea. I am not a believer. Whether the Bible is corrupted or not is ...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

The two questions aren't in Standard English. The problems are as follows: "Is...is.." in the first one, and the second being worded as a statement, but with a question mark at the end. I don't want to "read into" what you're trying to ask, so could you please reword so as to make your meaning clea...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Everything keys on the concept "free will." Materialists and other kinds of Determinists, such as Calvinists, say there's no such thing as a creature free to choose. Voluntarists and libertarians of various kinds say there is such a thing. If the Determinists were right, then evil would either a) h...
