    Re: The problem of divine hiddenness

    I had no idea you were talking about the oldest current copies of those works. That is not at all the same thing as saying the oldest sources. Look just because I have a bible printed in 2018 doesn't...

    Sorry if I got the wrong impression, I think you said something like it was only 2000 years ago and so it was more trustworthy. At any rate, we have competing beliefs that are both newer and older...

    Yes, we all live in the same reality here. So we are experiencing it and trying to make sense of how it works.

    The thing is, naturalism, as a general discipline, has been staggeringly successful...

    Re: Boys Can Have Periods Too!

    Generally, bad posts get a lot more attention than good posts. Id' respond to Dio (who did make a very good post) but Mican already did an admirable job of it.

    I thought the language in the article quoted by the OP was pretty specific. It said trans-boys/men can have periods. Trans-male has a very specific meaning.

    The "wall" argument is trying to argue that human thoughts can't have truth values in a naturalist worldview. That if naturalism is true, our thoughts must be meaningless.

    It's nice of him to go visit the troops overseas. So good on them for that. But it would have gone a bit better if he just didn't open his mouth and let his stupid hang out so much.

    Hexing is nonsense so I don't think we need any laws against it. If you do it in a way that could constitute personal harassment, then it could be prosecuted under those laws.

    I'm not sure if you noticed, but Sex (the act) and Sex (the gender) are rather connected to one another in various ways. You were asking about Sex (gender) so that is what I was talking about.
