Re: Should we be blamed for free choices

How is that even remotely possible, given God's ability to know all?

Perhaps the premise of an omniscient god isn't true. There does seem to be a lot of evidence to suggest that the biblical god is not omniscient.

Re: Should we be blamed for free choices

Saying that you can't be held responsible for your actions as they may be observed is the same as saying you don't have any freewill.

I go to hell for that.

Re: Moon

So they survived 20 million years of being smacked in the head by the moon before they died? It explains why they were so ferocious!

Should we be blamed for free choices

On a previous thread, there was a discussion about free will. Much of it centred around the supposed knowledge by a deity of all the choices we will make and how they may be inevitable. One comment mentioned that choices might be inevitable because [more]

Re: Free Will v All Knowing God

If God "knows precisely what will happen tomorrow and next year etc." then, clearly, that means we have no free will, for if you had free will then God wouldn't know what anyone was going to do and, therefore, wouldn't know anything that [more]

Re: How do holy places make you feel?

And likewise for an atheist, how do you feel when entering a Cathedral/Mosque/Henge and do you feel any different on any of the places?

Yes and no. Being in a building that happens to be a church or mosque does nothing. There are [more]

Ok. God loves you. Sorry about that. :D

I'm willing to bet most of Ireland's energy needs at that point were being met by oil in the form of petrol in internal combustion engines.

Re: Oh no. Not the "perfectly tuned" a

A large sample size (amongst other things) gives us some degree of confidence but the principle is the same.

Re: Spreadsheets

Is the interest calculated monthly?

If so:

Enter into (for example) A1:

Enter into A2:
=A1*1.08^(1/12)-200 (A1 is previous month; 1.08 is 8%; ^(1/12) is to make the 8% annual rate into a monthly one; 200 is [more]

Re: Tempur Mattress - worth it or what?
