Re: Round Table Debate: Science versus Philosophy?

How many of you were able to read the entire transcript?

Seems like it is blocked by a subscription wall.

threatening the Shogun to his face

So the Christian monks entered into the town of Nagasaki, to establish a ministry there and spread the word of Christ's teachings. It was the 17th century, and the Shogunate system reigned supreme. Friar Giuseppe gained an audience with the local Shogun at his administrative castle. And that day he ...

Re: let's list the "wars of Atheism" (if there were any)

In their careless mindless revisionism, nutbar evangelicals like to include the death toll suffered by Russian civilians in WWII. They include this large number as being, quote, "caused by Atheism." Never mind that the invasion of NAZI Germany was the main cause of these deaths. Never mind that it w...

let's list the "wars of Atheism" (if there were any)

Okay children, get out your history books. Lets try to list and briefly describe all the so-called "wars of Atheism" in the grand history of human civilization. It goes without saying that wars of Religion are so dense and conspicuous in history, that a 6-volume series of books would be required to ...

Re: People have killed each other over religion.

Maybe it is time I took a deep breath and started quoting the onion myself. This forum has recently been invaded by a cluster of people who think this is their personal Bible Study. On top of that, the moderators are threatening me in PM for silly perceived "infractions". Their time would be better ...

Re: The problem is human nature not religion

It is also clear that God as the author of religion will hold those accountable regardless of their worldly status. This is mysticism. This is not a Bible Study, Qman. This is not a catholic seminary website. This is a philosophy forum. There are millions of better places on the internet to talk to...

Re: The problem is human nature not religion

Most of these items were wars for political and territorial reasons. This is absolutely false and historically false, and it does not even properly describe current sectarian conflict. The distinction between Sunni and Shia is wholly and absolutely theological in nature. Sunni vs. Shia distinction ...

Re: Good Guy Satan - The Unsung HERO of the bible.

Hmm.. I think these are all good reasons for claiming that the original Israelites were a priestly class within the upper echelons of the Canaanite government. That geographic region in the Levant was never that densely populated. Not nearly as much as Babylon was, or Hattusas was. http://en.wikiped...

I'll take this is a breach of the subject of fallen angels. Happen you be familiar with the Book of Enoch?

Re: Human Consciousness is a program...

Our eyes have been opened to the illusion of the simulation. Perhaps, through global war the program can be reinitiated, the system rebooted if you will, but there can be no synthesis for we have reached the last lines of code within the program. There is nothing to move on to. We have nowhere else...

Re: The problem is human nature not religion

Sounds pretty Theistic, don't you think? Not it really does not "sound very theistic" at all. Did you actually read it? Let me break it down so you can see what Locke is actually saying there. Locke is differentiating between two viewpoints... No.1 which he refers to as "Natural Reason" No.2 which ...

Re: The problem is human nature not religion

Kuznetzova, you are still dodging the issue. Let me reiterate it. If Mao were a Buddhist (don't care if he was, I am trying to make a point) then I would hear solid condemnation from you and the atheist camp if I claimed that, because of people like him, Buddhism is responsible for all atrocities i...

Re: Hell and Justice

Hell was never real.

Hell is a projection of our psychological need for revenge. We believe that the cosmos-universe somehow OWES us emotional closure in this regard. Then we further believe that the cosmos-universe will deliver on what it OWES us.

Re: Hell and Justice

We are men who failed to protect a vulnerable woman from harm; a vulnerable woman with her unborn child inside her. This is ultimately about our sense of masculinity. We see ourselves as protectors of the sacred and the vulnerable.. and we failed at that duty. The rage is turned inward towards aimed...
