Re: Much the same

My understanding is that flammable was introduced because some people thought inflammable was a negative.

Re: Much the same

A bit like to 'pre-order' something that is not yet available.

Worse is "pre-warn". Is one really likely to post-warn?

Re: The Warrington Guardian

One that I noticed was that you didn't show where you omitted some of the quotation. It therefore appears that the quotation marks hadn't been closed when in fact the following paragraph was a continuation of the quotation.

Re: The devil

I was assuming you were an atheist.

You're doing it again.

Why do you keep ignoring explanations and questions? I respond to your questions and you ignore mine. That is both disrespectful and intellectually dishonest.

No, there was no time before the big bang.

Re: The devil

As to evidence, the atheist who came up with the uncaused universe, could find no evidence of anything, so here is the "no evidence" you requested.

So is the devil a Christian?

No. The devil doesn't exist.

Multiple universes has been put to me as a reason why the designer idea doesn't work.

Re: The devil

I also think reason should trump science fiction such as multiple universes and any other theory that has as it's base that God could not have created the universe so any other explanation however unlikely is correct.

So if they claim to be Christian but do not behave as a Christian then that is merely a trick to gain acceptance.

Re: The devil

What you presented as "evidence" is hardly evidence, just your opinion.

I presented Karl Marx's "opium of the people" quotation with context to show that you were misrepresenting the meaning. That's evidence.
