    What do you mean by 'America' in this sentence?



    So what?



    I disagree. Because you haven't made an argument here but merely stated opinion, my statement has equal weight.

    Re: Democrats are More Divisive

    So what?



    Nancy Pelosi's statement condemning Antifa violence in Berkeley.



    'Extreme' is relative. I don't understand the point you're making here.

    I only provided these sources because you indicated that "legends form in days", which I understood to mean that you are arguing that any source material that we have, if far enough removed in time...

    Much of what we know about Caesar's life comes from autobiographical accounts of his military campaigns (Gallic Wars) and from Cicero and Sallust.

    I disagree. Many of the places, people and events described in the NT can be verified by other means. That there are at least five independent sources that comprise the NT manuscripts and that the...

    Re: The problem of divine hiddenness

    I could be wrong, but I do not think I made the claim that our relative proximity to events suggests that they are likewise more trustworthy. Perhaps my singling out Mormonism was misleading--my...

    Re: The problem of divine hiddenness

    This seems like a fairly uncritical, oversimplified stance to take, especially as you are lumping a relatively recent religious group (Mormons) with much older religions. I don't know the extent to...

    Re: The problem of divine hiddenness

    Is the following not your argument?

    Premise 1: An omnipotent deity, such as the Christian God, could make sure that there was no reason to doubt their existence if it wanted to.
    Premise 2: There...

    If by "dispute" you mean "call into question whether your claims are well-researched", then yes, I did dispute your claim from the very beginning. Note, however, that in asking for support I have not...

    Re: The problem of divine hiddenness

    That's fine. You're welcome to prove the non-existence of your made-up deity. It would however be incorrect for you to equate your made-up deity with the Christian God, as you have not supported that.

    It's clear that you researching and trying to understand what Christians actually believe is not going to happen.

    The problem with this stance is that it further discourages people who have been sexually assaulted from reporting. As sexual assaults are under-reported to authorities (which some sources indicate...

    The tone deafness is in the lack of sympathy for assault victims. Even if Dr. Ford was dishonest (which I view as unlikely, given the evasiveness of Justice Kavanaugh's responses), there are a lot of...

    This is a great example of the kind of tone deaf, hyper-partisan rhetoric that is fueling the divide in this country. It's a crying shame, and it certainly isn't anything to joke about.

    I'm sorry...

    I claimed that "regardless of Kavanaugh's innocence, his partisan response and temperament are more than sufficient to disqualify him from the position." What is your point?
