Re: Free will

Well, I wrote a big long response and there was a system error so it's gone...grrrr! I tried to save the draft but that didn't work either. Anyway, I'll try again later.

Re: Terry was one of us

Bill, you were the one who recommended his books to me. I've read about 3 of them now and they were thoroughly enjoyable although I usually don't read fiction. His books were well worth the read.

Re: Free will

So can we assume because we can predict certain behaviors that these actions are a result of "no free will?" Are we then "controlled" by brain waves, oceanic tides, moon phases and the like and we merely think we have control of our actions? I know it's pretty easy to predict wha...

Re: I'm back...

Thanks to two of my best buddies...good to be here...again. Rom, the Spokane group meets on the second Sunday of each month at noon. They meet at a local restaurant and they have grown the past few years and have some good agenda items. I don't attend it very often, especially in the winter for obvi...

Re: A "Proof" for theism

I guess if I witnessed "many" miraculous events brought about by prayer to the theistic god, well maybe... What would it take? Limbs growing back, retardation gone in an instant, paraplegic walking, or something of this nature...I still say maybe. But I've seen too many times the lengths p...

Re: I'm back...

Well, here I am again. I didn't stay around long last time but I do think of you all quite often. You were the ones that made my journey out of Christianly easier than it would have been otherwise. I've put my husband in a home for those with Alzheimer's and my life has changed dramatically. However...

Re: A "Proof" for theism

There are too many unexplainable events that have happened to people to attribute such happenings to a god or higher intelligence. They are just unexplainable. I was once in heavy traffic with a car full of women and we got separated from our second car of women. We pulled over and didn't know what ...

Re: Sex

The part that gets me is many homophobes think ALL homosexuals are child molesters. I heard a person say just this week, "I sure wouldn't want my kid around any homosexual pervert." This is a common attitude...and this comment came from a (loving?) Christian, a person I used to go to churc...

Re: What is Life?

We can define things no problem ... no one said we could not. This is probably the single-most issue that causes so much heated debate around here: the notion we can define anything we want any way we want and then show that what we have defined is not kosher to our belief system. To take it to its...

Re: Free will

Thanks to both Rom and Bill for the above comments.

So....this leaves me at this point to ask of Rom, what is the "much" that Angels and Free will have in common? Maybe that will open some eyes of understanding and/or fire off a bunch of neurons. :stars:
