Re: ck
Interesting - I notice that you identify yourself as a "tentative" nihilist - why are you tentative - is it because you think it's impossible for the human mind to know for certain or are you considering "other options"? such as christianity?

Re: Admin input required - near end of thread
Well let's be honest about it - before I came back I seem to remember I was pretty rude to you on occassion (and I was very very rude to various christians - which Jar did a very good and honest job of pointing out to me). Over my break, I thought - what's the point? surely if we do anything here - it's to try and understand each other a bit better.

Surely that's a worthy objective? I honestly think we need more threads where we honestly ask and listen. Surely that has to lead to both a better understand of our fellow man and a higher quality level of debate?

Follow-up question to Catholic scientist.
Can I ask further - was it a sudden thing or did you came back to god over a period of time?

(as with Robin - please feel free to say "no comment" to any questions you don't want to answer).

Edited by CK, : No reason given.

I don't know if it's impossible or not to know. I have a certain belief in Logic. (My attempts at logic have been treated with contempt on this board). But I keep thinking about it, trying to figure it out. Obviously, I don't know for sure. The apparent accidental nature of life leads to me believe that it's all accidental.
