    Who Is Still Active

    Feeling cute, might be coming back, IDK.

    Who is still active here?

    Re: The Objective and Reasoning for Debating.

    Have you ever thought about why? Why is it that GP, LP, Dio, and Allo no longer regularly contribute? Would you call any of them ignorant in the ways of critical thinking? I have absolutely no...

    Re: The Objective and Reasoning for Debating.

    In that debate, specifically, you challenged me to prove the non-existence of something (rules that specifically and completely outlaw the birth of wildly different species from their parents). Your...

    Re: The Objective and Reasoning for Debating.

    Of course you do. You are one of the worst challenge tag abusers out there. Look, I have mad respect for you and you are truly one of the few people I missed during my year and a half hiatus, but...

    Re: The Objective and Reasoning for Debating.

    I have only ever been challenged on a point I have already supported, or on a point that I didn't even make. When the tags start coming out, I take that as a sign that my opponent is frustrated with...

    Re: The Objective and Reasoning for Debating.

    The two things I am passionate about - politics and religion - personally affect me in my personal life. If I can argue in both of these fields, not only do I find new arguments (and weaknesses in...

    Re: Precision in Nature = Evidence of God

    Squatch, there are two glaringly obvious problems with your agrument. I am going to outline them and then exit this debate. We are both just repeating ourselves at this point so there is literally...

    Re: Precision in Nature = Evidence of God

    What do you do at work all day, Capt? Hang out in your office on your computer? Hahaha, man, sometimes I miss the (non-deployed version of) the military.

    Ok, Squatch, I am going to get this...

    Re: Precision in Nature = Evidence of God

    So, you are allowing for the possibility of chance? Then P2 fails by your own admission. Especially when you consider that long odds do not preclude events from happening (especially if they...

    Re: Precision in Nature = Evidence of God

    "Is not" and "Cannot" is a useless distinction here. You ruled out chance and necessity. I know you took the meaning of my words as I intended them. We are obviously talking about this universe. ...
  12. Poll: Re: Why Do Think Dr Gonzo Doesn't Believe In A God?

    Rod posed the question that if a person had any inkling that God could be likely, anyone would naturally chose that path out of self interest (life at the ocean and death in the mountains). You then...
  13. Poll: Re: Why Do Think Dr Gonzo Doesn't Believe In A God?

    Just to clarify for simplicity's sake, I did write the op and construct the poll aimed specifically at theists in an attempt to suss out the theistic world view concerning a particular non-believer. ...
  14. Poll: Re: Why Do Think Dr Gonzo Doesn't Believe In A God?

    I believe the argument to go something like "Dr Gonzo has been shown the correct information before, but perhaps he is uncomfortable with the necessary conclusions drawn because it means he is either...
  15. Re: Stephen Hawking's "Explanation" about the Big Bang without God

    Who are these other physicists that are critical of Hawking's later life arguments?
  16. Poll: Re: Why Do Think Dr Gonzo Doesn't Believe In A God?

    I very much disagree with this statement. I think it is a valid objection that someone may have. One reason given so far (that my confirmation is competing with someone else's confirmation bias) is...
  17. Poll: Re: Why Do Think Dr Gonzo Doesn't Believe In A God?

    It's not? If I had a single reason (subjectively, after my own judgement) to believe, why wouldn't I?



    Ah. I see. Apparently, even though you just got done accusing me of confirmation bias,...
  18. Poll: Why Do Think Dr Gonzo Doesn't Believe In A God?

    1. Dr Gonzo refuses to believe. This choice implies that I have been given all of the proper information to make an informed decision, and I simply rejected it out of either obstinance or...

    Re: Precision in Nature = Evidence of God

    Pardons for the late reply. My trig teacher made us do a gigantic group project. As always, I ended up doing a majority of the work so it got done, and got done right.

  20. Re: [Discussion] "Uniqueness of the Bible" thread and its latest exchange

    I certainly did. I explained why the definition was unsatisfactory by offering an example of a clear contradiction being arbitrarily rejected. I picked that specific one because it is 1) obviously...
  21. Re: Stephen Hawking's "Explanation" about the Big Bang without God

    It doesn't seem like the theme of this symposium was to get into the nitty gritty of astrophysics, but rather explore the idea that people seek answers according to the paradigm they have chosen. ...
  22. Re: [Discussion] "Uniqueness of the Bible" thread and its latest exchange

    Isse I / Issue III.

    Sig is absolutely correct that the narrow definition of "contradiction" is meaningless and self-fulfilling. I did not offer up the contradiction found in the Creation myth as...

    Re: Precision in Nature = Evidence of God

    The only support presented for P2 is that allowing for chance would border on the irrational because the odds are so astronomically adverse. It has not been well supported thus far, other than an...

    Re: Precision in Nature = Evidence of God

    P2 states that chance is unequivocally ruled out. My argument states that chance is not unequivocally ruled out. I have defeated the argument by proving the premise unsupported and untrue.

    The problem that Squatch and I are discussing at the moment concerns, at its root, the a priori assumptions that we need a reason and not just the knowledge of the mechanics involved, and that chance...

    In relation to the OP, the corrupted SAP variation is the one being invoked here. The OP forwards that there is precision in existence, and as such, this precision requires a designer. This IS the...
