This for example:
Then, why you answered my question like that? Did you get my question? I've asked you: What the physical thing could be existed before time-space existence and where it was existed if there was no time or space for existence?
LOL, yeah! That?s why I said so in the first place...
What do you find "utterly repellent" about Sam Harris?
It's good to know there are no actual real problems left to solve and we can now waste time and energy placating and hand holding naive cult victims and their archaic superstition based nonsense
If you equate theory with Constitutional Law. The rest are stubborn remnants of compromise in a democracy.
Does Bee even know Ivanka? Why does she feel it ok to attack the Children (even though adults) of the President? What did Ivanka ever do to Bee to warrant these comments?
You doth protest too much.
The Gospel doesn't seem like "good news" to me. I believe Jesus was tragically misunderstood and sacrificed to a mob mentality who so desperately needed to believe in vicarious salvation that they rejoiced in a single man being murdered for their "sins." That doesn't seem like good news to me. But then, I don't believe in a fallen world, so there's that.
Sounds like the god of the gaps. Don't know what the cause is so we'll just call it god for no more reason than we want to. Alright, thanks for the conversation.
Not sure how the mechanism or where it is done is at all relevant to this discussion.
agreed but many christians do the exact opposite
None of it bothers me. If I thought it was the word of a god, then it would bother me very much.
Why not? I'm also 99% certain there aren't any magic flying unicorns living on Neptune and I'm 99% certain that Superman isn't real.
So no Victoria's Secret for you, actually to be honest that store makes me uncomfortable

What's the content of this empirical evidence?
Christ died because he was making waves in a dictatorial state.
I see no reason to think that the miscarried zygotes did not have souls just because they fell to unfortunate circumstances, or that (if you believe that way) that God failed to have a purpose in allowing it to happen (or even causing it to happen, if you believe that way). Still doesn't change what I said that the first creation story in Genesis 1 doesn't even mention God breathing into Adam (so could have been another origin story combined by an editor into Genesis with the second one, perhaps), and neither one mention Eve breathing (though obviously she did, as a human being). Spurgeon was a Calvinist who believed that there would be more elect than non-elect, and if I'm not mistaken, it was because of statistics like you mention coupled with his belief that no non-elect person ever dies in infancy judging from what I read, to make such an assertion. For myself, I don't even need a Bible to tell me that pregnant humans tend to produce humans, and the only real question is, will the human ever become (or be allowed to become) viable or not.
