Re: Homosexuality.

The thing I don't understand about homosexuals, is that they often go for a person, of the same sex that looks very much like the opposite sex. For example, my friends sister is fairly feminine in appearance, and she is partnered with another woman who is very masculine. So why? Wouldn't she be bet...

Re: Homosexuality.

if they say they were born that way, i agree - as i was born the other way. For sure. The battle against gays is a campaign for the hearts and minds of swinging voters, ie. bisexuals. While many more people would admit innate bisexuality if not for the stigma ("mission accomplished for conservative...

Re: Music

Here's a question I haven't seen others get into. When you listen to a song, with or without singing, do you just listen to it for its sound (which I often do which I think makes me an audiophile) or do you keenly listen for the words, or it depends? PhilX 🇺🇸 I never hear lyrics, when i hear music ...

Re: Virgin Birth Myths

WRT to Christianity, it is important to understand that the earliest "books" of the NT do not affirm Virgin Birth theology. i.e. none of Saul's letters. nor Gospel of Mark (where Jesus was a mortal man with sin like all others - until God adopted him upon Jesus' baptism by John the Evangelist in the...

I hear you, but being a poorly educated Frenchman, I am more self educated,and perhaps a slow learner at my age, I may never be as eloquent as you. Add in that I am prolific and short winded, I may never improve. Regards DL I too am self educated in many things. you a Frenchman Snake (don't get me ...

Re: Gnostic Christianity’s hidden in plain sight secret. We must do evil.

Another problem which is disappearing, because the language is chaning due to it, in English writing, is the disappearance of the separation between plural and singular. "There's apples and there's oranges", "using pronouns without a clear reference of it to its antecedent" etc. I wish i had decent...

Re: Gnostic Christianity’s hidden in plain sight secret. We must do evil.

-1- I think I agree with all you put. "moral absolutism is a good vehicle to influence people's behaviour on a mass scale." Confirm that by giving an example of what you are calling a moral absolute. What moral tenet did you have in mind? I think all morals are subjective but want to see your examp...

Re: Gnostic Christianity’s hidden in plain sight secret. We must do evil.

God is by definition supernatural. Science accepts no supernatural elements in its hypotheses and reasoning. It is true that scientists say "an audimlopodeus(*) is a sub-atomic particle that is responsible for the gravitational field. All we have to do is find it." This is not the same as to say "a...

My money is on evolution as it explains all the human to human evil quite nicely. as mine. Evolution is all about survival. man the animal is a produce of evolution, so all evil he does is to promote survival of said animal. including wars/murder/etc..............in some way i fail to understand, b...

Re: Gnostic Christianity’s hidden in plain sight secret. We must do evil.

In this case, the premis is that there is one creator from which all things come. Another premise is that evil exist. The conclusion I draw with the right logic, is that evil comes from the creator. The faulty reasoning is that evil does not come from the creator, in this instance from the Christia...
