Re: Whom We Represent

The problem here is that you don't believe that the many humans who wrote the Bible were inspired to record what they wrote.


That's not a problem. It's reality.

Phat writes:

They quite obviously didn't have ulterior motives or preplanned agendas.


What's obvious about it? I bet you won't answer that.

Phat writes:

And why is their writing cohesive amongst them?


It isn't. I bet you won't answer that either.

You get mad at me for being arrogant yet you attempt to insult me.


What did I say to insult you?

(Note to Faith: That's how to respond to an accusation, not with flat denial.)

I'll go heads up with any of you on an IQ test and likely beat you.


I don't believe IQ tests have any validity but sure, fire your guns. If you beat me, what does that prove? That God is real?

Re: Even I Can Answer Questions That You Claim Are Meaningless

One wag once said that if God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him. Comments?


God may have been "necessary" as an early hypothesis to explain thunder and lightning, much as phlogiston was an early hypothesis to explain combustion. But when better hypotheses are found, the old ones diminish in importance.

A&E were never taught to use it..thus they got expelled from class...but some argue that even that was supposed to happen. ringo would equate it to kicking college-age kids or mature young robins out of the nest.


I would say the teacher was incompetent.
