re: Tax the Churches - RedStickBR
This is stupid. Their life-blood are donations. Most foundations and endowments (i.e. other organizations that live off of donations) are also tax exempt. Charity is also a virtual mandate for most of them....

re: Screening of American Sniper Cancelled at U. of Michigan for being anti-Muslim - RedStickBR
Judging by recent events in Paris and elsewhere, when one promotes anything viewed as anti-Islam, it's everyone else, not the Muslims, who should be afraid for their lives. Is that what they're implying here, that showing an anti-Islam film would leave the Muslims on campus with no choice but to ...

re: History of the telephone pole - RedStickBR
If they are going for dramatic effect, why not mention the Illinois hanging first, which was also coupled with a throat slitting? Why are we led to believe this is a "Mississippi" thing, only to find out later this type of event also occurred outside the Deep South?...

re: I really would like an answer on this from christian conservatives - RedStickBR
Roger, I would just like to clarify that FooManChoo's view above is not one subscribed to by all theists. I'm not saying his view is wrong; I actually think his conclusion is right, but that he "understands" it in the wrong way, which has drastic implications. We are all predestined in the exa...

re: I really would like an answer on this from christian conservatives - RedStickBR
[quote]My question would then be why God made us so ignorant and incapable of understanding him. Providing us a thorough understanding of him doesn't diminish his power whatsoever. [/quote] Again, he made us in his image, and he has free will; thus, we have free will. If I know that 2+2=4, I...

[quote]For the purposes of this discussion, I have to grant you the presupposition that God exists. The argument can't happen otherwise. There are plenty of arguments inherently against Yahweh, but this discussion is about the implications IF he exists.[/quote] Honestly, this ain't even relig...

[quote]But was the home video available to God from the beginning, or does it get "made" as time goes on? If God could view the whole of human history in video form prior to creating us, he still has culpability. [/quote] The video was already "made" to God in the sense that, for Him, it had ...

re: I really would like an answer on this from christian conservatives - RedStickBR
Honestly, I think the predestination people get it wrong too in that they misunderstand what that means because they're trying to understand that concept within the confines of time. We're all predestined in the same way that the kid on the bike in the video analogy was "predestined" to turn righ...

[quote]But I don't know how my child will end up. God does. [/quote] Go back to my post about the home video. God "knows" how we will end up in the sense that it has already occurred to him. In our space-time continuum, we still have complete free will. They are perfectly compatible. Knowi...

[quote]God set up the game and wrong the rule book, then determined an outcome that resulted in the situation we are currently in. EVERYTHING that happens to mankind is on him, not us. We had no choice but to do as we did because God created us for the purpose of falling into sin. [/quote] No, ...

[quote]Right. But knowing the batter swings, still doesn't determine the result. He could hit or miss. And knowing if the batter hits the ball... still doesn't determine the result. A fielder could catch or miss. and on and on and on. There are literally thousands of permutations and possibilities e...

re: Why isn't Somalia one of the wealthiest and freest nations on Earth? - RedStickBR
Disclaimer: I'm not an anarchist … … but I do have the ability to put myself in someone else's shoes and try to think through an issue as they would think through it. I don't think the people arguing for "zero government" are also arguing for "murderous pseudo-military regimes" in the process....

[quote]The time component is irrelevant. God sees all time. As someone said, he wrote the script. [/quote] No, time is the most relevant component. Understanding time is the only way to understand the compatability of complete human free will, on the one hand, and God's omnipresience, on the ...

re: I really would like an answer on this from christian conservatives - RedStickBR
