Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Mike You base your comments on the idea that we cannot reach God's level of thought and knowledge of good and evil yet the story itself tells us that we can. God's own words ---they have become as Gods, knowing good and evil. I can understand your view of progressive steps up Jacob's ladder of knowl...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

If being perfect like God means that we must have the knowledge of good and evil, then Adam and Eve had to eat of the tree of knowledge Here is the key statement that you made. You are assuming that being perfect means being like God, and further than it means a knowledge of good and evil. Such is ...

Is becoming like God good or evil?

Is becoming like God good or evil? I would like to restrict giving God any other attribute except for knowing good and evil in this thread. Just for simplicity. I have two quotes I would like you to consider. “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil.” “Be ye therefore perfec...

Re: If God/Jesus does not know sex and reproduction, he is n

But believers in God have been telling me God knows everything, having created the universe and everything in it, including us. Am I missing something? The Mormons believe in a Father and Mother (gods) of this earth who have physical forms similar to us and apparently make spiritual babies (who lat...

Re: If God/Jesus does not know sex and reproduction, he is n

Assuming that Jesus is God, and not a son of God or a human form of God, but 100% God. Does God have DNA to support the idea of incest? Next, God created our reproduction system much so I'd say he has some discretion in the rules. Of course, that is if you believe in the Christian religion and all ...

Comprehending God Poe, the Bible and Candid style.

Comprehending God Poe, the Bible and Candid style. Poe said... If we cannot comprehend God in his visible works, how then in his inconceivable thoughts, that call the works into being? If we cannot understand him in his objective creatures, how then in his substantive moods and phases of creation? T...

Re: Is it moral to kill when a cure options is available?

Thanks, DL, for the clarification. Interesting ( at least to me :D ) how our discussion developed; so glad that I overcame my initial negative thoughts and responded despite your saying not to ! As if saying that would chase any dogmatic people away anyway ! It still seems to me that you only wish ...

Re: Is it moral to kill when a cure options is available?

I don't think so. Someone who chooses to put forward a dissenting point of view is not necessarily dogmatic or a God-believer.. True. But he would be quite an immoral person and I have no time for such. Even if someone who disagrees is the biggest baddest boggiest son-of-a-bitch, do you think that ...

Re: Is it moral to kill when a cure options is available?

The implication is that we are on the same moral page. As to people not worth talking to. FMPOV, I already talked to them via the O P and if they are that far from agreement then they are too lost in their dogma to think for themselves and I have no time for them. I am not interested in their ------...

My pleasure. Thanks. My "If you do not; please do not reply.", at the end of "I hope that we will all agree that for a human to kill, when a cure option is available, is evil and immoral."
