  • …..Case in point, follow up.… I absolutely positively detest EVERYTHING about Donald Trump….But I have friends who voted for him. And they plan to vote for him again. I am amazed at their stupidity! We agree to disagree. When they explained to me there are reasons for supporting him, I can understand where they’re coming from to a certain ext…[Read more]

  • Just the simple fact of the way this person commented on your weight…They are not your friend.

    I have many different friends from all different types of walks of life. Some agree with me, some don’t. Some think the way I do, some don’t. I think it is a sign of maturity when you can sit across the table from somebody who holds a different point…[Read more]

  • However @Glen D you just proved my point. It’s amazing to me how quickly the slightest hint somebody might disagree or challenge a point of view, and it’s “I don’t want to talk to you anymore.” That’s how petty and close minded our world has become. And that’s exactly why I said what I said to Davis. And it has been my experience that those pe…[Read more]

  • @Glen D my response was to Davis. Anyway, it’s whatever. And it wasn’t an ad homenim attack I was answering his question. You can choose to disagree with me. But I’m sure you couldn’t come up with something to prove me wrong.

    So what now? Just because I say I’m not an atheist you automatically label me as a theist?

    Wow you all know me so well!…[Read more]

    1. No

    and

    2. No

     

  • And I don’t know where you got the idea that I’m an atheist. I’m not. And I find a lot of the arguments that are made against the existence of God pretty tiresome. And that’s why I’m not even really answering your questions because we would just go around in circles for days. That’s all it ever ends up being as one big circle. That’s why I’m givin…[Read more]

  • @Davis

    oh so now you’re labeling me? What the fuck is a radical postmodernists anyway? You don’t even know me and now you’re trying to put me in a nice little box and pretend like you got me figured out. I don’t even understand what your question is. I can give you countless examples of arguments that have been made by people for the existen…[Read more]

  • There really isn’t any evidence either way for either of these. Like I said….any “argument” you can conjure up for or against God’s existence is ALL subjective opinion. It really just depends how you perceive certain aspects of reality. That’s why getting into these debates is somewhat pointless. Trying to convince anyone they are wrong is…[Read more]

  • @Davis There is no such thing as objective evidence for OR against the existence of God. It is all subjective.

  • @Glen D

    I don’t consider my position subjective, rather it is objective, built on empiricism

    Could you provide your objective empirical evidence for me to read?

  • Yawn

    And around and around we go….

  • @Glen D

    There’s way more evidence that God does exist than evidence that he doesn’t.

    And that is my subjective opinion.

    I’m guessing your subjective opinion is that there is way more evidence that he does not exist than that he does…

    Either way it’s subjective opinions…

    Who is right?…TBD….

  • @Davis I was honestly just following the rabbit trail of what YOU said in your post.

    You clearly don’t understand anything about his position on the Biblical stories. I’m curious to know how many hours of Jordan Peterson have you even watched?

    @Glen D lmfao!!!!!!

  • And I think you’re forgetting how much of the world lives at the bottom of Maslow’s pyramid. They have survival on the mind 24/7. Not “evaluating claims.”

  • @Davis

    “Most” research psychologists are still learning how we can even reliably measure executive functioning.

  • @Davis

    It’s actually stunningly easy and common to use strong reasoning skills when doing this and most do it every day.

    And what about those who don’t or can’t? What about people who have damage to their brain that impairs their executive functioning? What may be “easy” for you is nearly impossible for them. How can you honestly assert that “mos…[Read more]

  • @Davis

    Your original words were:

    We use reason and logic and clarity to evaluate just about every claim we hear

    I’m wondering if you could point me to the “peer-reviewed” literature you read that allowed you to make such a claim….I’m sure you used your reasoning and logical skills. And who is “we?” Are you referring to all human beings on t…[Read more]
