    “Why are J-mac’s posts so ridiculous?”

    It’s subjective?
    Example: Why would anyone believe in thermal vents as a creator of life?
    Or worse, a bolt of lightning?
    See my point? Nuh, eh?

  3. J-Mac: It’s subjective?
    Example: Why would anyone believe in thermal vents as a creator of life?

    It’s rather that a thermal vent environment is a better candidate (heat and cold in close proximity, dissolved chemicals, mixing) than a stable warm little pond for chemical activity that might produce precursors to biochemicals. Those of us who can’t call on a God hypothesis have to consider alternatives.

    YOU will be answering all questions to God?
    Excellent, will you be answering some of the other questions in the poll too? Just start at the top.

  6. Corneel: YOU will be answering all questions to God?

    I could try to answer some…I’m not sure how God would feel about that though…

    Corneel: Excellent, will you be answering some of the other questions in the poll too? Just start at the top.

    But then there is this…
    I hope you understand my reluctance to answer ones at the top?

    A better candidate than warm pond? You missed that point of my comment, obviously…
    Are the vents or the warm pond a better candidate than say… Jack Szostak trying to recreate life in the lab?

    Alan Fox: Those of us who can’t call on a God hypothesis have to consider alternatives.

    You can’t? Or don’t want to?
    I think the answer is obvious…

  8. J-Mac: I hope you understand my reluctance to answer ones at the top?

    Yes 😄

    All in all, I have the impression that none of the questions are truly intended to be answered. Most of them read like accusations. Do you expect people to hold a grudge?

  11. I like the parable of Cnut. But was Cnut demonstrating he wasn’t superhuman or did he really think he could order back the waves?

  13. “Why do people not want You to exist?”

    Because those people do not want to be told what to do.
    They do not want to be accountable to a Higher Being because they simply do not want to change…

    That much is true. Who does?

    They do not want to be accountable to a Higher Being because they simply do not want to change…

    Being told what to do by the Higher Being’s self-appointed representatives on earth seems like something a mug would do.

  16. “Can atheists and agnostics be saved, like Antony Flew?”

    I don’t know what Antony Flew had done during his lifetime… Was he responsible for deaths or many people, either directly or indirectly???

    However, at the end of his life he’d come to his senses and realized that materialism driven atheism cannot account for the complexity of life and the fine-tuning of the laws governing it and the universe…

    Do he deserve to be saved?
    I think so… 🙂
    Otherwise, what’s God’s great mercy for?

    Imagine you have designed a Tesla “who” doesn’t want to be told what to do or be accountable to a self-appointed designer…

    both

    God would say “neither”, and he’d be wrong.

  20. J-Mac,

    How are you keeping?

    Pretty well if you leave me unopened and in the refrigerator.

    Imagine you have designed a Tesla “who” doesn’t want to be told what to do…

    …and then you complain when it disobeys you. Quite silly, I’d say.

    Sorry to hear that…

    keiths: …and then you complain when it disobeys you. Quite silly, I’d say.

    But I wouldn’t complain if Tesla fulfills its purpose without breaking the traffic laws…

  22. J-Mac: Is that right? You’d have to explain it to me…

    Well, there’s no “Father Christmas/Santa Claus” hypothesis available to me either when it comes to explaining presents and where the sherry went. I can’t make myself believe what I can’t believe; especially when there’s no supporting evidence.

    OK, my new question is “Why does God have starfish limbs?”.

    Fair enough!
    I have the same problem…

    Example: Why would anyone believe in thermal vents as a creator of life?

    I don’t believe that, but someone who did could answer that at least thermal vents do exist, provide energy, there’s energy gradients around them, thus thermodynamically, ahem, dynamic, etc.

    J-Mac:
    Or worse, a bolt of lightning?

    I don’t believe that either, but someone who did could answer that at least bolts of lightning do happen, provide a highly concentrated amount of energy, simulated bolts have produced organic molecules from simpler ones in experiments, etc.

    J-Mac:
    See my point? Nuh, eh?

    I suspect that you thought you had a point, but that you didn’t stop to consider it carefully enough.

    Why does it hurt when I pee?

    Consider peeing while standing… There is a higher risk of getting your pee-pee infected when urinating while sitting on the toilet, while your pitol is dunking, especially, if your wife uses harsh chemicals to clean the toilet bowl and forgets to flush them…

    That’s a very atheist/materialist approach to solving one’s problems.

  31. I’d don’t quite know why some people don’t want God to exist.
    Perhaps, they like the so-called prohibited lifestyle…

    But, I have one way of detecting it: they get angry when faced with evidence pointing to a higher being, like God…

    Care to have a guess at what I get up to that’s ‘prohibited’?

    But, I have one way of detecting it: they get angry when faced with evidence pointing to a higher being, like God…

    More that we get irritated by bad arguments, and people telling us how they think their god wants us to behave. The supposed creator of genitalia, for example, seems awfully obsessed by their ‘improper’ use and display. Almost as if it’s a projection of personal prejudice.

    Me neither. He seems like a nice chap. Too bad He doesn’t.

    Is that a fact? Or, is this another example of your not so educated guesses?
    You must be a worshiper of the creative powers of thermal vents, or the bolt of lightning…
    Too bad you can’t prove their creative powers…
    Whatta shame.. such nice so stories…😅

  35. J-Mac: Is that a fact?

    You can’t prove something does not exist. But the evidence seems poor, being mostly from sheep herders thousands of years ago.

    J-Mac: Or, is this another example of your not so educated guesses?

    Even the most educated on the question of if god exists cannot agree which particular god it is that exists. This is a fact, just see the number of religions with mutually exclusive gods all of which have the same level of support.

    J-Mac: You must be a worshiper of the creative powers of thermal vents, or the bolt of lightning…

    It’s called projection. You worship X because you think it created you, I presume, so you think other people worship the things which created them. You made a comment recently about people seemingly being able to read minds. It’s what you are doing here, telling people what they must be thinking.

    J-Mac: Too bad you can’t prove their creative powers…

    The evidence is there for all to assess. Unlike whatever it is that you are actually claiming which is not quite clear apart from some people have got some things wrong and quantum. You seem great at sarcasm and mangling what other people are thinking but not so great at actually saying what is correct.

    J-Mac: Whatta shame.. such nice so stories…

    The phrase is “just so stories”. Try to keep up.

    And if the origin of life via a thermal vent is a just so story what is the story you are telling that is not in comparison?

    Don’t torture people , especially mentally with your sex evolution fairy-tales…

    Allan Miller: More that we get irritated by bad arguments, and people telling us how they think their god wants us to behave

    You don’t have a free will?

    Allan Miller: The supposed creator of genitalia, for example, seems awfully obsessed by their ‘improper’ use and display.

    How is evolution going to work then, if people misuse their genitalia?
    Are you telling me you can prove that evolution is still progressing with the oral and anal sex???

    This is your real chance to prove the evolution of sex with the progression of the evolution of the reproductive organs…

    Allan Miller: Almost as if it’s a projection of personal prejudice.

    You can’t argue with modern, evolutionary science…
    You simply can’t…

    Let’s hear the excuses now. 😉
