  1. Re: Is Matthew 12:40 using common idiomatic language?

    Well, I did say " God's near only written communication with man", I said nothing like "the only communication with man".

    That being said, would you expand on this point.

    What is ?:

    Re: Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes

    Ummm.....ya........you are surely correct!?

    This is probably not the only issue Jesus would have with me.

    I am uncertain of the relevance though...

  3. Re: Is Matthew 12:40 using common idiomatic language?

    How is communicating by ancient text written in another language convey a desire for a relationship? I get your comparison talking with your wife vs a stranger and the relationship makes...

    Re: Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes

    That someone (anyone) wants to keep their assets, as apposed to letting the Gov't take them is almost mandatory for the human condition.

  6. Re: Is Matthew 12:40 using common idiomatic language?

    That I get, however, I think the many denominations of Christians would number significantly less if it were so ("straight forward" to everyone).
    IOW, people would generally believe similarly. One...
  7. Re: Is Matthew 12:40 using common idiomatic language?

    I agree. Given that, it seems an incredibly odd way for God's near only written communication with man. It ends up quite subjective that being the case, does it not?

  8. Re: Is Matthew 12:40 using common idiomatic language?

    Actually you know at least one person that believes it is literally true, Squatch. Unfortunately, he is going to be mostly unavailable for a week or two so will be unable to respond till then.

  9. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    While I don't necessarily disagree with you, I also see an issue with the women who falsely accuse men of sexual assault rarely face any serious legal issues themselves (with a few highly publicized...

    True, and almost as amusing, travel faster than the speed of sound was thought impossible as well!

    I say amusing because birds and insects were flying right in front of their faces at the same...
  11. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I have read your posts for years and may I say, this one is a curiosity and amusing at the same time. However since I appreciate humor in ones argumentation (which is why Ronald Reagan was SOOOOO...

    Re: Theistic beliefs are not rationally justified

    As we discussed, "time" began for "our" universe at the BB. As we have acknowledged, there could be other universe'/realities (which is a necessity if God exists...). It is likely they have "time" of...

    Re: Supernatural?

    Are you saying a supernatural event can not have empirical evidence?
    How could we say an event even happened if that were the case?

  20. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

  21. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I think a point that just does not get discussed is when the accuser is caught lying about an incident, punishment for the false accusation is usually pretty light if at all, while the falsely...

  26. Re: Mind Trapped by: Self driving Cars, it's social effects.

    I am not saying this claim is true, but since you haven't responded to it in your rebut, I must assume you believe it is true. If the accused and the only three witnesses all disagree with...
  28. Re: Mind Trapped by: Self driving Cars, it's social effects.

    Agreed, it appears inevitable, but I think that is because of all the positives and seemingly few negatives. I hadn't thought about people not being allowed to drive at some point, but that seems...

    I appreciate your opinion.

    Since I'm fairly sure you don't agree with my whole post, but singled out just this point to respond to, I'm going to take that as I AM getting better at this.
