Re: Supernatural

Which has destructive potential, being the witch, or being the accuser? Honest question. I happen to think both.

Perhaps if I explain fully, you won't. To accuse someone of being a witch, without merit or proof, simply to advance your [more]

Absolutely not. I've embraced the thing, too you know.

"No human above another" was plagiarized by me.

Re: Supernatural

Maybe. But if that's natural, and how it's ever been, why ever argue for something better?

I'm sure you realize that "better" is a highly subjective word.

To a masochist, more pain is better.

Re: Supernatural

Having been raised with the idea that there's more to life than what our senses tell us, it's easy for me to imagine even now in my sixth decade of life that we think that way because of what once was. Why long for something that can never [more]

He walked about restoring sight, function, and life; restoring relationships. He was bringing them back to as close to their natural state as he could within the context of time.

If we are eternal energy / matter that thinks, why would a larger version of eternal energy / matter that thinks be supernatural?

Maybe I'm not understanding supernatural, even though I'm apparently preaching it...

Now, if you want to say your deity created DNA...well, I can't disprove that.

Re: you up for a question, 1A?

So much faith in fact, that everything yet inexplicable (I think the world would be very different if everything bowed solely before the god DNA) is deemed "untrue". Pretty limiting I think...

Re: you up for a question, 1A?

The OP may have a different answer, but I would say that evolution is a property of DNA much as gravity is a property of matter. There is no "purpose", it's just how it functions.

This then encounters natural selection in the

If I understand one position correctly, the current speculation for the purpose and resultant existence of the morality that much of the animal kingdom currently practices is quite simply put: "propagation of the genome".

Re: you up for a question, 1A?

Forensic/physical evidence of origins still requires interpretation.

But you equate it to the speculation of something for which no forensic/physical evidence exists. That's quite a leap.

Re: you up for a question, 1A?

So... you believe in a sentient composed of matter and energy who experiences thought. Does it take faith to believe that a 'larger version than us' exists, or is that accepted without faith as well?

Well, that's illuminating. Lot's [more]

Re: you up for a question, 1A?

You're sort of proving my point. You have the right to decide for yourself what you'll accept as payment for a "debt". So does God. You don't have to agree with the way someone else does it.

Our breaking God's laws creates a debt to God. He accepts certain payments for that debt.
