Re: Mannie

Seems to me: if a guy doesn't think god exists, and doesn't spend a whole whack of time thinkin' about it, then he's an atheist (or mebbe an apatheist ). But: if that guy writes books & essays denouncin' god-belief, if his career in some fashion benefits from denouncin' god-belief, then -- at best ...

Re: God given rights. Do you really have any?

God given rights. Do you really have any? We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. When a right is given to us by governments, the...

Re: Is the knowledge of good and evil, good or evil?

Is the knowledge of good and evil, good or evil? For you, me, and Adam to answer this question; we need the knowledge of good and evil. Adam may have needed what he was denied by Yahweh to know if the tree of the knowledge of all things, is good or evil to eat from. As scriptures say, he was mental...

Re: Is the knowledge of good and evil, good or evil?

GIA Imaginary good and evil is one thing while real good and evil is something else. Who has experienced the difference We all have from our Socratic cave. Yes. Societies, mostly accurately, distinguish good from evil. They all have legal systems. https://www.bu.edu/wcp/Papers/Anci/AnciBhan.htm Pla...

Re: God given rights. Do you really have any?

The reason you 'will' not is because you 'can' NOT. Correct, for the reason you later give that you were just a result of anthropomorphism. When did I supposedly ever say that I was just a result of anthropomorphism? I said the reason God is labeled and named as a "he" is because of anthropomorphis...

Re: God given rights. Do you really have any?

LOL and are REALLY 'trying to' suggest here that the so called "democratic" societies and political systems are NOT corrupt? What I suggest is that we do not have any real democracies. We all live in oligarchies. In that sense, yes, all our democracies are corrupt. Have a look at what the U.S., as ...

Re: God given rights. Do you really have any?

God never gave any rights; neither has he subtracted any. It's non-existence offers the same conclusion. One's rights is usually determined by status which has nothing to do with merit. I will not argue against this. We tend to take rights to ourselves as they cannot be given, as you say. That does...

One bullshit over another. Just a bigger pile of poo.
Myths are not quite B.S. They are stories with messages.

In the myth, do you see Adam as benefiting from ignoring Yahweh's command to not educate himself from the tree of all knowledge?

Did Adam do the right thing?

Re: Is the knowledge of good and evil, good or evil?

The knowledge of good and evil (knowledge of good actions/fruits and evil actions/fruits) helps one if one understands both and has the power to do good and therefore enjoy good fruits or consequences, and to avoid evil and its evil fruits or consequences. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil...
