Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

Hi Paidion,

You wrote:
Abortionists argue that the fetus is not a human being.
So how does in make sense to charge the woman who used meth with murder? National schizophrenia comes to mind.

To my mind Roe v. Wade is similar to the infamous Dred Scott decision by the Supreme Court.

As A People The US has Gone Insane

Today I heard the prayer by representative Cleaver at the US House of Representatives close with "Amen and Awomen' after they had changed from he or she to "them", among other gender things. The politically correct crowd has gone completely nuts! Representative Cleaver, who uttered the words, showed...

Re: Our “spirits”?

Hi Paidion,

Do you believe that soul, spirit, physical body are inseparable? Did those who appeared with Jesus at the transfiguration then go back to their graves or were they resurrected for the event?

Re: Did Jesus Command His Apostles to Kill?

Hi Paidion, I don't think you can consider verse 27 apart from the parable that precedes it. Note verse 14: 14. But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’ I think the reference in verse 27 is to either the judgement of 70AD or the ...

Paidion, You wrote: That isn't clear to me at all. I think Paul is saying that he would rather be absent from this present mortal body, and present with the Lord in the future immortal resurrected body that he will receive when Jesus returns and raises the dead. The two texts being discussed (1 Cor....

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Paidion, Consider two Greek words for time, chronos and kairos. Theologian Paul Tillich wrote that kairos describes: "that feeling that the time is ripe, prepared, mature." It is a Greek word which, again, witnesses to the richness of the Greek language and the poverty of modern languages in compari...

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Darin,

Thanks for posting. I thought this was very pertinent; I had never thought of foreknowledge and free will in this way:
As Cargile puts it, "The player is free-he just cannot escape being 'seen' making his free choice."

Re: Newcomb's Paradox and Time

William Dembski stated, along with a quote from William Lane Craig, what I have believed for quite some time: ....Craig argued that divine foreknowledge does not preclude human freedom: if God foreknows what I shall choose, then I shall not choose otherwise; it does not follow, however, that I can't...

Newcomb's Paradox and Time

Imagine two boxes, one white and one black. The black box always contains $1,000. The white box contains either S1,000,000 or nothing. The contents of neither box is visible and they are sealed. Suppose an agent with perfect foreknowledge informs you that $1,000,000 will be put in the white box toda...
