Re: atheim is an adventrue of faith

This really shouldn't come as a surprise, I think.

Taking it any further than those two categories beggars logic: how can y...

Re: Objectivism

Quantum, Here is what Nathaniel Brandon (Rand's former right-hand man) outlines are the tenets of Objectivism. Objectivism teaches: 1. That reality is what it is, that things are what they are, independent of anyone’s beliefs, feelings, judgments or opinions—that existence exists, that A is A; 2. Th...

I'm sure we'll have a good many things to contribute here. Boy, I have a very low opinion of Objectivism (at some point, I wrote a pape...

Because if they did, they could arrange to have their house bought at a foreclosure price, move back in, and pay back the friends who bought it, and end up paying less for their home then they had to whe...

Just by way of common courtesy, I will let you know that I am going to come back to this subject in a couple of days.

In fact, I also used to be a Lutheran minister. In my post-Christian quest for continued understanding, I have recently co...
