Re: The Impeachment of Donald Trump is a Partisan Stunt. Change My Mind.

Agreed, for the reasons the Democrats say at least. I don't think he's done anything impeachable since he's been in power. 18 U.S. Code § 872: “Extortion by officers or employees of the United States.” Or 2 U.S. Code § 192, “Refusal of witness to testify or produce papers,” 18 U.S. Code § 610: “Coe...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

Adaptation is indeed a fundamental part of Evolution, but it doesn't follow that because species adapt, they must also evolve. And "all the steps?" Bro, there's a LOT more to Evolution Theory than just adaptation. I'm doing a couple school assignments and sipping whisky right now. Excuse my impreci...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

Your choice, but it was you that brought up supernatural vs. natural. I did, but without the intention of trying to nail the difference between the two. I was speaking generally. I think you misunderstood what Angrus was getting at. He's saying that there are certain axioms used in Science hat requ...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

The workings of God are, by definition, supernatural. Tell me why. I'm not breaking down semantics. This is pointless. Such as? I already listed two. Evolution and Spontaneous Biogenesis. We'll discuss this further later. The only people I've seen elevate science to a religion are people like those...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

Once again, a bit of a semantic argument. I'm taking about the workings of God. Then I'm not sure what you mean. Anytime we use a term like 'supernatural' we're making a semantic argument because the only difference between 'natural' and 'supernatural' is the extent to which we can observe somethin...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

The data come from observations of nature and inferences from the data are, by definition, confined to the natural and observable. We're observing the natural world, and the supernatural does not fall within the scope of science. I understand what you're getting at, but you're blaming a monochromat...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

Well, there is, actually. The claim is that science should lead us wherever the data goes, but as I said, one of the underlying axioms is that it was NOT divine action in any case. The data come from observations of nature and inferences from the data are, by definition, confined to the natural and...

Re: Why Aren’t More Intellectuals Believers?

I think that's moreso the case in people with some sort of emotional intelligence problem. For people who are just particularly intelligent, it's like you said: ignorance is bliss. Knowing the awfulness of the world can give you a bleak outlook on life. I'm not THAT intelligent and that's how I feel...

Re: When a Community Comes Together, Great Things Happen

Neat story! If only more people would come together to help each other out. :) I have found that most everyone is, even at the least, a Unitarian. "It's all about me. One person." I've had talks about this with many people and the defense always seems to center around how "I care about my family" o...

Re: SNL attacks Christianity

Please, scripture is anything but clear. Unless, of course, we are still making grain offerings, women are wearing head coverings in church, etc. And even if they don't believe the Bible is inerrant doesn't make their belief any less sincere. Just different. It would be one thing if people had been...
