Re: Burden of proof ?

I see you are still as dishonest as ever, Bill. I never did receive that apology for your lies in the previous forum. And you never once explained why you had come up with that ridiculous and unfounded allegation. I must advise you to stop this tirade - or provide some rational explanation for your...

Re: The Bible

Who are you to demand He explain His reasons and purposes? That is a very arrogant attitude to take with your Creator If there is a creator, and Yahweh does happen to be that creator, then he endowed us with minds to question and challenge his very existence. For us to refuse to question and challe...

Re: If there is a God, is he personal?

Proof that Yahweh does not/cannot/probably does not exist is a rejection of Abrahamic religion, and not of all possible deities that may exist in our universe. Being agnostic has already put the Abrahamic religions into the sphere of "not so". Putting ALL deities in there as well requires ...

I concede the point.

But I am still waiting for one of the four or five strong ignostics I have come across to be willing to enter into a meaningless discussion ...

Re: Definition of Agnosticism

Well, plagiarism notwithstanding, I am of the opinion that Ignosticism and theological noncognitivism are generally synonymous, but the relationship of ignosticism to other nontheistic views is less clear. While Paul Kurtz finds the view to be compatible with both weak atheism and agnosticism, other...

Re: If its not Jesus than who will kill us?!

All those extra magnets all over the place would possibly reverse the Earth's polarity again, causing all sorts of extremely threatening potential, I would not be at all surprised. I think it is time to go back to horse drawn buggies and the like. They did not have global warming back then, so it mu...

Re: How Frequent Is Welfare Fraud?

You must also show the other side of the coin. Things might have changed since I left the city, but while I was on assignment to New York city back in the late 90's, one duty of NYPD on the morning after particularly cold winter nights, was to patrol Central Park (and other favorite hang outs) to de...

Re: Capital Punishment

12 peers? Chosen by the attorneys during the selection process to get a group each thinks they can manipulate with rhetoric and razzle-dazzle. Aw come on - if nothing else, let us agree that the jury system is so seriously flawed, it should only hear traffic offenses. But to answer your question, if...
