    Faith: Re: The soul does not exist

    Again, my apologies for getting more personal than you are comfortable with.




    Yes of course there are, but you don't believe they are correct so I didn't expect you to talk about them. I...

    Re: Democrats are More Divisive

    Great point. I do think you see limits on the conservative side how far right they will go.

    I don't see this on the liberal side. Every year the extreme gets more extremer. Add to that the...

    Well then maybe libertarians and conservatives should just stay home and out of the way of the better, regular people. It would just be easier for everyone :)

    Faith: Re: The soul does not exist

    Perhaps, but you only hope/believe it is this way, and this hope/belief is based on faith not anything you know to be true.

    How can a proper foundation of belief start with such frail conjecture?...

    Faith: Re: The soul does not exist

    Agreed but does not address my point:

    if faith is required that means you do not know or faith would not be required. It has nothing to do with definitions.

    Except your brain (per you) creates you. Another brain could clone you, but it still would not be "you"!
