Looks like the Archbishop of Dublin is starting to realise that religion is dying in Northern Europe;

Dude, there's a debate section. It would be set up for the both of you with a commentary page where we can discuss it separately, and laugh at your evidence.

General Religious Discussion / Re: me aganist the board
« Last post by kcrady on Yesterday at 02:48:17 PM »
bollocks, you are using your finite mind to judge the infinite mind of the creator so of course you are wrong.

Haha.  Of course, that "argument," if one were to dignify it with that term, applies equally well to you.  Furthermore, if I am not qualified to evaluate Yahweh, then I can't agree with you, were I inclined to do so.

Jamihlers,
You wrote: "I suggest that be the subject of our debate - you take the affirmative side, that your god does exist, and I'll take the negative side, that he does not.  What do you say?"

I wil be more than happy to debate you on this topic.
Here is the problem.
I can I can show you historical evidence and cause and effect evidence that Gos exists. I have no problem doing this. Of course, you are not going to accept any of my proofs. One the other hand, you have no proof AT ALL.
If you want to go for it, I am all in.
However, if it is you and me, I will not respond to some of the other posters.
Fair enough?

here is a gem inquiry...:
Evolution, just too difficult for Christians to understand?
a primer question that can be answered too: what is evolution?

What makes you think evolution is too difficult for Christians to understand? This sounds like a indirect accusation of some sort. Does this apply to ALL Christians?

BS, it is a generic accusation, and of course it doesn't apply to every christian. But virtually every christian who comes here to debate the subject displays an abject ignorance of the subject. And they base their arguments on that ignorance. Which, as you can imagine, doesn't go over well with the locals.

Hence we generalize, because all of our direct experience with believers and such discussions turn to crap. Because of their ignorance, voluntary or otherwise.

We would welcome a christian who understood the subject and still disagreed with it. Not having to explain the meaning of the word "theory" for 35 pages would be a relief.

Maybe they should provide an abstract of the abstract of the abstract so that people like OC would have the time to read a little tiny bit of text and hence know to ignore the paper instead of citing it.

Just a thought.

I downloaded the entire article (which is not a study) and will post it if anyone wants to read what it actually says (which is not what orange is trying to say it is). Based on my reading of the article I'm not sure orange even understood the abstract.


Yes, please. I would like to read it.

Why are community organizations paying people to protest?
They are being themselves. Why do eagles catch rabbits?

Is this just business as usual?
I should think so.

Seems unethical to me.
Not really, freedom of speech is not limited to enthusiastic amateurs.

Who is responsible for all the damage to local property?
The person that did it - unless it can be shown that the organiser had given instructions

Personally, If I owned a business that was looted and destroyed by protesters who were paid to come into my town and demonstrate...I would sue whoever paid them.
That's why there are lawyers to defend everyone and ensure the law was complied with.

If you paid someone to mow your lawn, and he killed your neighbour in a dispute as to where your lawn ended and the neighbour's began, should you be convicted?

It just seems wrong.
I hope it doesn't now.
