Re: Critical thinking/ spiritual discernment.
Shame, I was hoping for more comedy gold like the last post.

Especially as I made an allusion to one of your most egregious failures.

But let’s not forget the others like your insistence that the child of Isaiah 7 could only be Jesus - when the text says that the birth would be a sign of events that occurred in the reign of Ahaz.

My aim is to break the mold...to be controversial

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. ~RC Sproul

Subjectivism may very well undermine Christianity.
In the same way that "allowing people to choose what they want to be when they grow up" undermines communism.

You're not going to be controversial by spouting the same pulpit guff as all the other loony evangelics.

Re: Thugzy Unplugged
Well, I AM a believer, after all. You can't expect me to present my worldview under the guise of atheistic secular humanism. What I will do is to compare and contrast various ideologies and belief systems while not waffling on my own beliefs. Many of our conversations at EvC will be brought to life through some of my video commentaries. You have always claimed that I am delusional, but quite frankly the jury is still out as to which of us is actually deluded. No disrespect intended, Tangle. I know that you are of sound mind and are logical and rational.

Admittedly my beliefs are not logical in the context of modern psychological and sociological thought. But alas....I won't give them up for that reason.

Plugging EvC Forum
I mentioned EvC in my video today. We may get some new visitors.

Relativism vs Absolute truth

Comments are welcome. I took magnesium tonite, so hopefully no Charley horses tomorrow.
