Re: Atheists Hide in the Gap

There's always a gap where one must make a leap of faith. You can reduce the gap or it can grow wide, but there is always a gap. Even in what atheists take to be rock solid proved scientific facts there is a gap. If you look in the right place, usually do some epistemology, every source of knowledg...

Re: commizeration circle

Meh. Politics: games adults play to have control over other adults.

Bunch of hooey.

Re: atheists don't know what the "heart" means

I've seen this before but it's incredible to me that anyone could graduate from high school and never having heard of the concept of "heart" as a metaphor. Dude, you've been out of highschool for quite a while now. You would be shocked white by the level of degenerative bullshit that passes for edu...

Re: Rejection of Chrsitainty and Self Esteem

Meta, As you know, I have already posted the following comments on this topic elsewhere, but I am going to lift them from there and place them here. They're my comments, so I'll do what I like with them. I know you won't have a problem with that, given the seeming paranoia of the place we both know ...

Re: No Longer Quivering/Take Heart Project

I'll tell you what I will do. :D I will revise the article I wrote for No Longer Quivering, so that it acknowledges "trouble/sorrow in conceptions/preganancies" as another possible reading. This still reasonably includes the fact that too many pregnancies, too close together, wear down and harm a w...

Re: No Longer Quivering/Take Heart Project

Zarove, you keep asserting and re-asserting that a woman in ancient Mesopotamia would never consider it burdensome to be pregnant every year, year after year, feeling her body slowly weakening with the stress, knowing that the chances are high that one of the pregnancies will one day kill her. I sa...

Re: A really stupid arguement

Zarove: Would you please clarify what you mean by "religious", please? And then could you please demonstrate how an atheist is religious? Metacrock: I think you must deal with a lot of very intellectually immature non-believers if it is that they are equating religion with stupidity and emotionalis...

Re: Scientists to look for China's Bigfoot

one thing I find odd there are some reports of bigfoot attacking but then people will claim they don't hurt people. In Asia they speak of three and four different types an done type say eats people. In N.America we don't have any reports (no credible ones) of them eating people. That's generally be...

Re: Reason and Faith

Do reason and religious faith conflict? Are they compatible? I've just read Tillich "Dynamics of Faith". His arguement is that no they don't conflict. However it all comes down to how you define both "Reason" and "Faith". Could you summarize Tillich's argument that they don't conflict, please? Also...
