Dogmatic: Adjective
Inclined to lay down principles as incontrovertibly true.
That definition fits religion quite nicely. Don't you think so?
Science dies that a lot, then realizes its errors & creates a new dogma.
Scientists go through great pains looking for errors in the sciences they practice. That's the goal... strive for a more complete and true understanding of reality. Scientists love finding mistakes in science. It's part of their job descriptions.

Contrast that with religion. Religion rarely, if ever, does that. When it does it's usually, if not always, after this or that scientific finding has been scrutinized for years and even centuries. The masses come to accept the truth of said findings. Religious leaders then realize they can no longer disseminate fallacious information to an educated public and maintain power over it. It kicks and screams about it the whole way... but, eventually, it's forced to change.

So... religion, Sir, yours especially, is anything but self-correcting. It relies, however reluctantly, on science to do that for it.
Science once taught that the Milky Way was the galaxy. Then realized it was wrong & started teaching new "knowledge".
The Milky Way is a galaxy. Science still teaches that it's a galaxy. Didn't you know that?
Science once taught that the best way to beat a cold is a good bleeding......
And science found better methods. Religion did nothing.
Science once taught that the universe is infinite, then finite, then back to infinite.
Etc etc etc
You started out accusing science of being dogmatic. You even provided your preferred definition of dogmatic.

You close your post by directly contradicting that definition.

Do you think no one capable of noticing that?

Math has nothing to do with it... not in the sense you're grabb'n for.
Can you prove to me that our universe was "created"? Can you prove that it hasn't always existed? Perhaps, and even certainly, not in the form it exists in now... but that it hasn't always existed none-the-less?
You see?... I don't know.
Ans I don't believe you do either.
To give you an idea of where I'm coming from...
A creator cannot be created simple look at it this way, cars/constructs these are all made, the makers of those are NOT made they are created thus the creator of those creations cannot be either made nor created.

Yes I still stick with the cause and effect, but God cannot be subjected as an effect, since he is not an effect there is no cause for God.

You simply proved my point for the your last example, TIME is something man brought up, which is simply an indicator of events that occur during a period, in which they labeled and gave it an identity. Space...same man brought it up as a measure between distances and dimensions. However, all that existed not by us we simply identify, but do not create, thus it had been created if u say made then how is the creator of those makers?

"the concept of a beginning for the universe is MEANINGLESS." I'm afraid u said something that all atheists disagree with you on that point, since atheists say that our very purpose for living and that we are all here is simply for learning, which in this case is meaningful.

<quoted text>

I do not have to prove that since "common sense" tells us that. Its just not comprehendable, How can it "always existed" that cannot be digested it just cannot think about it, it even hurts your head if you do.

Yes it does. Unless you ignored the part where I said most people aren't scientists & can't understand the complex math behind it.
Those people don't understand the science, they just blindly follow what they've heard to be true.
I ignored nothing. "Other people" are irrelevant to what was being discussed.

You ignore much and have little business pointing out the ignorance of others.

You demonstrate ignorance repeatedly. You didn't respond to post #595169 because you couldn't do so without correcting yourself. You're ignorant of your ignorance. You're a practicing dogmatist.

I didn't "design" his defective heart, did you? Like Harry Truman once said, the buck has to stop somewhere, and that would be god.
Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
What kind of "god" creates cancer, and then unleashes it on humans?
What kind of "god" turns a blind eye to sick and dying children suffering through no fault of their own?
Your god creates a fatal condition called Exencephaly, where a babies brain painfully grows abnormally outside of the skull. What kind of "god" would create such a thing? What kind of "god" would allow an innocent baby to needlessly suffer like that?
What kind of "god" condones at least 6000 children to be burned alive in Auschwitz?
What kind of "god" creates Alzheimer's disease, and then allow those that have faithfully followed 'gods" various religions to literally waste away day by day and lose all memories which made up their very life? My mother died from Alzheimer's disease and she literally BEGGED me often to allow her to commit suicide, so that she could stop being tortured. What kind of a monster sends a disease like this to millions of loving human beings? Is that a god worthy of our respect?
Now you might try and WEASEL out of this by saying that "god" didn't create these things (even though it's clear god did). Regardless, the point is that your "god" allows all of it to continue and turns a "blind eye" to all of it (and much, much more suffering throughout the world}. That kind of a "god" is a monster, no matter how you look at it.
All I'm getting out of you is that you admit that God created your cat and your cats heart.

What I don't understand is why you blame God for your cat dying, but you don't thank God for the time that you had with your cat, all the pleasure you had, all the love you shared.

Do you think God should have made immortal beings out of all of us?

Here, you flip sides with who "others" represents.

Before, you were speaking of the ignorant masses that just accept any ol' thing they're told without understanding it and without a second thought about it.

Now you're using it in reference to people that do know what they're talking about.

You just automatically assume I belong to the former group. You made that clear.
I'm sure there's something you can teach me, just as I'm sure there's something I can teach you.
I don't believe you really feel that way. If you did, we wouldn't be having this discussion in the first place.

Common sense has never produce quality results, it is a throw back reflex to help us survive by making us imagine monsters in the shadows. It's archaic and does nothing to provide any facts.
An atheist friend of yours disagrees with you -

Of course common sense is one of my highest values, it should be your also. Common sense tells me that TIME is a constant, there can never be a situate where TIME is non-existent. Part of the big bang theory states that there was no time or space before the singularity. Since Time is a constant, any speculation about the universe having a beginning is pointless. Dr. Neil Turok premiss makes good sense I light of time being a constant. The big band was a LOCAL event in a mulit-universe. A reoccurring event, much like a perpetual motion machine. Our universe, one of many, expands from a tiny point of intense matter (the big bang) as it is still doing, everything moving rapidly away from a central point, and then contracts back to that tiny point of intense matter.

Or, in your case.......A magical being for which there is absolutely no proof, snapped his fingers and the entire cosmos magically popped into existence.

I'll take logic, and reason, and a huge portion of common sense over magic anyway.

That's what he said.

Funny... I don't feel old but I must be. I remember hanging out at the Kingdom of Stallions in Buena Park and partying till the sun came up during KROQ nights. Waking up face down on the hills of Tijuana with chickens all over me after night of drinking down at "La Zona Roja"

Now a days I yearn for a good book, a soft couch a quiet evening and nice fresh cup of coffee......

What is OBVIOUS is that people are trying to re-write history to make it seem like the founding fathers were ambivalent about their religions.
Why do people not want to acknowledge what is written history?
Why do they feel the need to change it?
That's a good question.

You might try asking that of a professor in one of the Revisionist History classes that are being taught in our U.S. colleges now.

There's nothing like paying to learn about made-up crap, i.e., opinions.

Admit that your buddy Mylan's post was a bunch of bullshit, then we can talk about Lincoln.

Up yours, pal.

Thanks for once again showing your true colors which includes your overwhelming ignorance and dishonesty to the point of not being able to admit you DID say what I claimed you did about minorities as well as not being able to provide anything of any sort of substance at all which would indicate that it's "pretty clear" Lincoln was a religious man which you said he was based on the Gettysburg Address.

Next- Mylan is not my "buddy"- Mylan is another poster here who seems to be a very nice and very intelligent person who can no more stomach your BS and lies than most people here can.

That being said, there is no special alliance between Mylan and me, so as I suggested to you last week and will suggest again: Put that self-inflicted persecution complex of yours back in your back pocket.

And honey- the day the sorry ass likes of YOU put ME in MY place- HA!
