The initial proposing of a "Great Debate" via the PNT forum is problematic, as only the PNT originator and admins can post there. I think what we need to do, is to set up the ground rules etc. in a non-PNT, before the PNT is actually proposed.
For the above cited case, I here ask Randman if he is interested in doing this "Great Debate" with Nuggin?
We can also try to use this same topic, to set up future "Great Debates".
As far as that post goes, I have had similar thoughts, not just on the unlimited ability of god to appear in many forms, but also on the limited ability of humans to understand, and that different populations would have different understandings of similar experiences due to the different cultural information base involved.
Then there is the question of god intentionally appearing differently to different populations based on the effect desired.
Then there is the question of whether it is god or some advanced race with telepathy.
But I think Mini Ditka and I would have substantial agreement.
The question is rather who will dispute this position.
I Have proposed a Topic for debate between myself and one or two people on who the Nephilim where. Read on Proposed Topics and see if you want to join. Arachnophilia would be great in it, and someone knowledgable in Biology would be useful to. But only 1 or 2 guys along with myself.
Whenever Brian is ready to debate me on the Exodus I'm ready for that so long as it can go to the pace that I'm able to handle which may be sporadic depending on research time needed or time available for debate. I understand that Brian is willing to do the OP.
What are your thoughts about the interpretation thread I proposed? If you are interested at all, would you like it to be more focused. It could be a 1 on 1 or even a many on many yet structured so that you don't get flooded with replies.
