Why do you hate babies?
Your posting style bores me. Makes me feel like I am talking to an adolecent with a stick jammed up their a$$. But the books of Numbers and Deut show that people were not responsible for their disparing words against God unless they were 21 and counted in the census. Jesus also says for one to enter Heaven they must be like a child. He rebuked a diciple from trying to keep children from coming to Him and says those that lead children into sin deserve to have a millstone tied around their neck and thrown in the river. And the ones that led them to sin were the guilty ones. Deut says children do not know the difference between right and wrong. So I believe there is plenty of support for an 'age of accountability'. The Bible also speaks of those who REJECT Christ which obviously a child has not done

<quoted text>And more of the gang gangs up. I am speaking scientifically; there is no religion in my words except to say this all started with me comparing science to religion; that they both are based on fundamental assumptions.
Actually I'll give you that one can argue science doesn't necessarily assume fundamental forces are indeed fundamental. And that's all Hiding had to say and I would have said, "yea I suppose you're right". But she had to go and embarrass herself by going into "smokescreen mode" and telling me that she believes science can never attain anything absolute and that it's absurd to assume fundamental forces have no more fundamental of a cause.
So I may have to modify what I originally wrote. Let's see. Maybe I would have been better off by prequalifying it with, "if science wants to declare that fundamental forces are indeed fundamental, then we are basing science on an assumption". And Hiding is pretty much pushing for them being fundamental, without a cause. You seem to be doing it as well.
All I was getting at was that the absolute answers might change everything about what we thought we knew. And with that I'll remind you that science does actually operate on one thing that is irrefutably an assumption. That assumption is that we are observing a first order reality. How do we know that what we see is what we get? Until we can connect it to something absolute this could all be an illusion. Not saying it is, but it could be. You wouldn't want to assume it isn't either right? Not based on anything scientific anyway right?
to the extent that the reality we perceive is consistent, then it is accurate to the bounds of that consistency.

your inability to see this speaks to your rational instability.

science provides us with the very best explanation we have, and when improvements are made to that understanding then we will still have the very best explanation possible.

You wish a reality that is subject to your fears and hopes, there is no evidence that "shared reality" is malleable. Your "personal reality" is another matter as you well demonstrate.

each "christian" believes himself to have perfect understanding and kinship with the god.
christianity is a moral failure, one of the very best proofs that it is NOT the philosophy of a god.
So thats why you dont believe in God?And I never claimed to have a perfect understanding. Hey do you still think man never had a beginning and rejject abiogenesis and the possibility of intelligent life on other planets? And have you informed the scientific community they no longer need to try to discover anything any more since if it existed science would already have proof of it?

<quoted text>Hmm, perhaps I missed something.
Are you denying mountain-building by vulcanism and plate tectonics?
Both are readily observed and measurable today.
I cite the Hawaiian Islands, which until very recently were NOT islands, and the Himalayas, which are still growing higher.
Ararat (not a single mountain, BTW, but a massif with two major peaks both called "Ararat") is a pretty good example of both phenomena.
No not denying that it happens at all. Geologists have demonstrated this. Ararat is a massif. Not many people know that. But I still find the evidence more compelling that there was water at 14,000 feet there at one time during the early years of man. The pillow lava is consistent with this.

<quoted text>I see you are trained in diversion as well. Glad you agree work is involved. Power is the rate at which work is done. Can you do work without power? Maybe time does not exist in the realm of fundamental forces aye? Well if so then we have a bigger problem because they still cause work to be done and, still, fundamental forces are most likely not truly fundamental. "the total work along a path is similarly the time-integral of instantaneous power applied along the trajectory of the point of application"
that would be limited to 4 dimensions.

Faithfullness AND obedience is required. The book of John quotes Jesus as saying we can do nothing apart from the father as we are all branches on the same tree. Those that refuse to be obedient are cut off and burned away. Jesus stayed in the Father's love by obedience and so must we be obedient to stay in Christ's love. There are dozens of similiar versus that say basically the same thing as far as why obedience is needed.(T) PEACE

Yes..you are an idiot if you think God gives little kids leukemia. Do you blame him for making you stupid, thus your subsequent unbelief? I rank you just barely above a troll. I think our conversations are probably over

I think supernatural stuff is for children, like the invisible friend sitting with them on the bus seat.

But by age 8 or 9 at the latest, critical thinking should click in and hocus pocus should be left behind.

I believe this would be the natural maturing process, but for enculturation and indoctrination.

@Hiding...dont know how i cut off rest of my post about sins of thought. But doesnt your own moral code tell you it is wrong to lust after another man's wife or to want to cheat on your wife or to be jealous of others?You saiid religion created sin to control but only God knows what one thinks and if the idea is to be moral in both thought and deed because it is the right way to live, how is that a negative?
No, my moral code doesn't tell me lust is wrong. It tells me that lust is healthy. Acting on it, without consent of the interested parties, may be wrong in some cultures.

Yes, religion - specifically the Abrahamic ones - invented the concept of "sin." It doesn't exist in other cultures as such. I reject the existence of your deity, so I see no point in basing an argument on its whims. However, your religion is a means of producing and reproducing culture. So your justification of "sin" through the mind of your deity is an example of how "sin" works, how the mechanism of control functions.

As a believer, it's real for you. It actually shapes your behavior and thought processes. In your words above you are solidifying its control over you.

I didnt say lust in general. I was speaking to coveting another man's life. And of course a moral code I respect amd believe in is going to influence me. I allow it to because it advoates such things as love thy neighter and do Unto others as you'd have them do unto you

That's reason enough for me to reject the whole Christian thing.

In the unlikely chance that there is a god, it can't possibly be such an unfair creature.

It makes no sense to me--it's just dogma, and unacceptable dogma.

You have drunk the kool-aid. I can't do that. My critical thinking won't allow it.

A decent omnipotent god wouldn't permit that.

If there is a god, it ALLOWS it to happen.
