    It would seem like if each moment of my existence is equally real, and I am experiencing a "now" in each moment in which I exist, then there doesn't just exist a single me, but a separate me for each...

    But I'm not actually seeing an argument. I'm seeing a string of assertions, but I'm not actually seeing an attempt to show that there is any logical interconnection between them.




    That's fair.

    The problem I have with this line of reasoning is that it seems to be almost perfectly comparable to the kind of argument atheists/skeptics put forward when they bring up Euthyphro's dilemma and...

    I don't need an argument to reject something that is offered as a bare assertion.

    Yes, that's the claim. I've yet to see an actual argument to support it.

    Yes, I agree. IF God didn't know the future and didn't manipulate people, prophesy can be wrong and open theism is correct.


    But you've yet to demonstrate that God knowing the future without...

    GPSes would work even under a Lorentz interpretation of relativity. And the Michealson-Morley experiment just couldn't detect an aether, it did not disprove it's existence. The issue is not which...

    My point was simply that God not knowing the future under A-theory, wouldn't mean that He was not omniscient. The actual extent of God's knowledge in the actual world is a different thing from...

    Nah, what it would mean is that a different interpretation of relativity, like Lorentz Ether Theory, which is experimentally identical to SR, would be true. SR is preferred over LET, not because it...

    That would only be true under certain views of A-theory. But if you believe that "time" is not a real thing in itself, but simply a way of describing the rate of change at various locations in the...

    No, I'm pretty sure that would still count as being omniscient. If the future does not even exist to be known you're not any any less omniscient because you don't know something for which there is no...

    That's the dumbest argument for physicalism I've ever heard. You're basically saying that materialism is supported by using a methodology that basically ignores any thing that doesn't fit into the...
