As I’ve mentioned numerous times, I’m on Android. (A phone.) To me, that picture is no larger than a postage stamp. I I suppose it would be quite large on a PC. I apologize if you found it disturbing.
Um … that’s about how old I was when I was in Sunday School. When I asked the question I wrote about there.
Is there a problem with that?
The genetic fallacy arises whenever we dismiss a claim or argument because of its origin or history.
1) You cannot believe Bob’s idea because it came from his dream.
2) The psychologist says Tim believes in God because Tim lost his father at a young age. So, God doesn’t exist.
3) That is not possible because he got the idea from a sci…
That’s what he did to me in another thread. My answer was “too long”. Never mind that half of what I posted was his questions, followed by my answers.
My very first or second post here in CFI was written to be scanned (in a bullet-point magazine style). Before I even posted it, I ran it thru a scanner to verify it was a short r…[Read more]
Other than a certain person’s egomaniacal whining and the kerfuffles it caused, the rest of the posts combine to form a splendid example of a helpful group of people trying to explain the same thing in a bunch of different ways to an unfortunate soul who doesn’t understand a wide variety of basic concepts in science and logic.

We prefer discussing what the word actually means. We increase understanding instead of scoring points.
Yes. Words have meanings.
I like words so much, I made the word “words” my vanity license plate:
Objectively, @snowcity, you are infusing things others say with your own meanings based on your own interpretation — your own obsession with Buddhism.
Also, you don’t understand what “No True Scotsman” is.
@holmes I don’t think you realize scientific consensus is a certain thing.

And that’s a tiny piece of it!
When my blog is up I’ll let you know. Thank you.
In case my post never becomes visible, it was excerpts from this
I’m 100% with you: your views on God and the problems and benefits of religion.
…you somehow know God. You are able to judge others on their version of God, the attributes they assign. I don’t know how you get to do that.
In moderation again
I only recall being in Sunday School a few times.
I have a memory of the instructor asking us to pray for a sunny day for the church picnic … and me asking, “But what if farmers are praying for rain that day?” … and her chuckling. (I was both cute and precocious.)
I understand the way memory works, and I assume this is a confabulation. But…[Read more]
Religion is in some sense like a Rorschach test in that it often reveals a lot about the underlying personality of the person holding these beliefs.
This is quite true. But you need to look deeper. You need to understand the implications of this.
God did not create man in his image. It was the other way around.
It’s not that God vanished in 2013, It’s more likely that the concept you forged about this mysterious entity was partial or inadequate.
Her lens was cloudy, scratched or simply too small to provide a more clear, well focused view of the world.
Well, I thanked you for your apparent kindness yesterday.
Today, I’m res…[Read more]
It’s like some of our posts die suddenly and go to purgatory. But if we pray long enough…
Wow, yes, very spooky
