Re: Into the lion's den

Kind to your neighbor, give to the poor, help the needy, turn the other cheek.....an atheist can do all these things as well as a Christian yes.

Re: Into the lion's den

According to these Islamic scholars, Muhammad never doubted the authenticity, veracity or integrity of the Old Testament, or Tawrat, Zabur and Injil.

You have been referring to the New Testament. If you want a discussion on the Old [more]

Re: Into the lion's den

Why I would fear an all powerful state is self evident from history.

Perhaps I'm unfamiliar with the history you are referring to. Can you elaborate?

Re: Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays just sounds incredibly naff to me.

Isn't much of Christmas naff anyway?! :-)

Re: Into the lion's den

I was referring to a faith based on trust and confidence of a future possibility rather than of a religious type.

Then why refer to "blind faith" and imply that faith and science are mutually exclusive?

Re: Into the lion's den

Perhaps blind faith in the possible played a part in the eventual success

I very much doubt it. The mission was based on science and engineering. Trajectories were calculated to the nth degree. If there was any faith, it was faith in [more]

Re: Into the lion's den

In principle, you can't scientifically prove anything.

Technically you can. Falsification is a proof of sorts.

Re: Into the lion's den

But then maybe it's fun to sit on high and throw an earthquake in the ocean and then laugh my socks off as people drown. Which is it? Is your god all powerful or impotent? Were you praying to god or the devil?

Re: Into the lion's den

If people who believe in god(s) used logic they wouldn't believe in god(s) because the texts do not support the belief as they have been debunked by science and a better look at history.

Re: Into the lion's den

If as you say "an appeal to popular opinion is a logical fallacy" why should that be true for Christians, but not for Muslims?

It's true for everyone.


Obviously to a Muslim, the Quran is the truth. [more]

Re: Into the lion's den

So if an overwhelming body of opinion said that an event happened in a certain way, and just a few said something else, the majority opinion would be accepted as the truth.

That's not how it works. An appeal to popular opinion is a [more]

Re: How many gods?

It's perfectly possible to make a point without being arrogant and condescending. In fact, by being confrontational, you are less likely to convince those you disagree with.

I have never mentioned Muhammad, but of course I believe he existed.

And I believe Jesus existed. That wasn't the question. The question was whether or not you believe the account of his life. Specifically, do you believe the Quran? [more]
