    If it was a bomb it might have been a bomb...

    If it was a bomb it might have been a bomb planted near ammonium nitrate storage. However it could also just be a fire. Let's see what the investigations turn up.

    When I was a teenager a whole...

    As a conclusion leading what his worldview? Yes. However, I do believe he has eyes in his forehead and a brain to think with. Anyway I was only examining a point. Don't get distracted by me if you...

    You do realize that materialism is not the only position, right? You also realize I am talking to you as a a theist and not as an atheist? And finally it doesn’t matter what follows from the premise...

    I support that as long as it's a similar tiny fraction of the governments budget. I'm all for it. I don't hold it against Pakistan for pursuing something lofty. At the very least its stuff like that...

    I'm not quite as fatalistic as believing humanity will be gone any time soon. We shouldn't begin to narrow our time horizon of plans, I think it would actually do humanity a lot of good to take a...

    oxmixmudd, like you I'm no fan of Trump and have made that clear. However... if I doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell of doing this, why bother about it?

    Figure out what we are oriented towards in the traditional sense of Scholastic philosophy. This is the whole basis for virtue ethics: We can figure out what the natural ends of man are simply by...

    What is wrong with national pride? Or doing something like this because of its inspirational value? I am not sure what you mean about military implications. The solar system is so vast that any...

    It would be odd to do things conditional on mans existence. “Let’s fund an art museum, but humanity might not be around to enjoy it in two hundred years so what is the point?”



    There will be...

    I think we can cautiously believe the State of Israel on that one, there doesn't seem to be any strategic interest in them doing something like this.

    Is there anything you get excited about? Hope to see? Worked hard to achieve?

    I think it is always a good question with any endeavor to ask, is it worth it. That goes for any endeavor humans do. Obviously if you personally don't get excited about this, then it has little value...

    I don't think this makes sense seer. Though I also disagree with JimL's definition. Goodness can be defined in a way where it's possible to learn objectively what it is.

    JimL also isn't begging...
  14. I'm not sure you can just create laws that...

    I'm not sure you can just create laws that contradict the constitution. So changing the election day would, it seems to me, require an amendment. Such an amendment could be done, I guess, for...

    Sounds more like they're saying "We are not even going to consider it." as their official stance. Wise.

    True, you can just amend the constitution if you have enough support.
  17. It also has the advantage that you can refer to...

    It also has the advantage that you can refer to good people already know and remind them that those are reflections of God. There is goodness in those things, and in that way they already know...
  18. Why was the crowd cleared immediately before the...

    Why was the crowd cleared immediately before the photo op is what I want to know. And apparently the justification has now shifted from a curfew shift, to a firetruck having to pass. I think we...
  19. I'm not sure there's any difference then, but why...

    I'm not sure there's any difference then, but why phrase it this way as if God decided what morality is, rather than us simply finding him to be the highest good? Seems a strange roundabout way.
  20. There's a law in the constitution that specifies...

    There's a law in the constitution that specifies very clearly when the presidency and vice-presidency of a person terminates, I think it's January 20th or something like that. With the president and...

    What do you mean when you say God's goodness is self defined?

    I follow Aristotle and define Goodness according to our experience of it, what is desirable, what all things strives towards. Anything can be good, a knife can be a good knife, a baker can be a good...

    Actually everything I said contradicted what you said. I also had a look up of Quantum Logic, because your statement that it was the law of noncontradiction that was violated didn't make sense to me,...

    Now that I think of it, if the election was delayed then wouldn't the position of POTUS fall to the speaker of the House until a due election could be held, and wouldn't that be Nancy Pelosi?
