Re: Who Sinned First?

[ a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.] This event in the storyline brings everything together and shows us that it was Adam who sinned first. Why, indeed? As I have pointed out. As you have posit...

Re: Who Sinned First?

Nope. As the story goes, the god instructed Adam regarding the fruit of the trees in the garden before the god created the other creatures. As the second version of the story goes. I prefer the Chapter 1 version, when the humans are made last. However, even in the other time-line, there is no indic...

Re: Who Sinned First?

Your examination of the evidence seems to be all over the place. Sequential, according to the King James. the focus of this thread is to try and identify who of the pair actually sinned first Obviously: neither. Sin hadn't been invented yet and hadn't happened yet. Disobeyed first: Eve, by a minute...

Very possibly. But I didn't refer to logical deduction; I referred to a formulaic representation of it. The way a diagram represents the working of an engine.

Re: Who Sinned First?

To continue then. Nevertheless the next scene we are introduced to the Serpent. There are various interpretations re the word 'subtil' and it is generally regarded along the lines of being "cunning/of malicious intention" As we know, Adam named the Serpent a "serpent" so we can conclude from that, ...

Re: Who Sinned First?

[S - This is the version adopted by the Constantine's committee, so i guess it can't be fixed for inconsistencies.] There seem to be inconsistencies nonetheless. That's what I said. There are tons of them, throughout the OT, and even some in the NT. The inconsistencies got in when the stories from ...

Re: Is logic at its root fundamentally programmable?

And you the same...anyhow a context is needed under a set of rules logic falls under. If you disagree with these rules you are disagreeing with inescapable foundations logic exists through. The repeatability of these assertions follows the same repetitive nature embodied within logic. All repeats u...

Re: Who Sinned First?

The story itself says nothing about sin. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Genesis-Chapter-3/ [The serpent having assured her that she would not die,] 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she too...

Re: Is logic at its root fundamentally programmable?

1. Yet which causal links observed are chosen from a series of causal links. Whichever ones are relevant to the situation at hand. Most minds are incapable of sorting through infinity every time their pants catch fire. 2. "Empty in themselves" not empty. Oh, well, that's entirely .... the same. 3. ...

Re: let it be, let it be

I think maybe "They shall burn in the fires of hell for all eternity." would give it a run for its money.
Once in a while, it's quite sound social strategy not to fight the majority over every issue.

Re: Is logic at its root fundamentally programmable?

1. All logic is dependent upon a series of selected assertions which are rooted within a sea of potentially selectable assertions. A computer cannot select which assertions to begin with. No. Logic is dependent upon the ability to discern causal links between events and/or phenomena. 2. All asserti...

Re: Is Western Civilization Declining?

Apparently, communism works better than capitalism when it comes to world domination. Communism would never seek world - or even local - domination. What you've got hold of there is dictatorship sticking a false label on itself - as it usually does. Of course dictatorships can show impressive short...

Re: Who Sinned First?

Adam or Eve? That depends on where you start the sinning process. When Eve was talking to the Serpent, she had no clue as to good and evil or sin or any of that stuff: she had not yet eaten of the fruit. All she was concerned about was God having said that if they tasted that fruit, they would die ...

Re: What Should Teachers Teach?

So, does that mean, private tutors acting as servants to the whims of the rich and no education for the poor? Put those slum children back in the sweatshops!...
Oh, wait, it's been taken over by robots. I guess those poor children will just have to grow up on the street and learn to be criminals.
