Re: A "Proof" for theism

Do we not have enough evidence for the non-existence of a luminiferous ether? Should I hold out some hope for phlogiston? My understanding is that the non-existence of luminiferous ether and phlogiston were established through scientific experiments, not by offering premises and conclusions in the ...

Re: A "Proof" for theism

I am trying to say proofs of non-existence cannot be based on any formal logic, for the absence of evidence is not sufficient to be evidence of absence. I am not sure I agree with this Bill. Do we not have enough evidence for the non-existence of a luminiferous ether? Should I hold out some hope fo...

Re: A "Proof" for theism

all we need is a single example of some event that would constitute a "real" miracle, and the case would be settled. Before I will start a thread to explore, in this forum, a miracle that we all live daily and no one can deny, I like to point out an important fact first. If a person is bo...

Re: Deep Agnosticism and Buddhism

So your statement in all religions believers should follow rules of their god ... a little bit lost in translation, is not accurate? Yes, they should follow rules, claimed being inspired by their supposed Idol, called god or else. Otherwise, they won't form a well defined religious/spiritual system...

Re: Monism, Dualism and Pluralism

Someone revealed this fact by a simple clear statement: Which is born of the flesh is flesh, and which is born of the spirit is spirit. The former (whoever is born of the flesh only) cannot 'even imagine' the existence of the latter (born of the spirit too). Therefore, the former sees the latter as...
