    That's not actually the way it works.

    If a group of people started claiming that, say, the increase in global average temperature observed over the last two centuries has been caused by a decline...

    I've never actually read the Quran, before. I might be inclined to take you up on this offer.
  3. If you think that the "this" in that sentence...

    If you think that the "this" in that sentence refers to the author of the gospel, you've removed the sentence from its context. John 21:24 is clarifying the identity of "the disciple whom Jesus...

    I said that the gospels do not make any claims to having been eyewitnesses. Quotes from these later epistles are, quite obviously, not from the gospels; nor do I see how they have anything to do with...

    I think that you are confusing yourself when you say that these things "have always been." You're mistaking the notion that these moments exist for thinking that they are somehow the same moment.

    Much in the same way that rulers measure something that is tenseless and static: by having demarcations at regular increments over the particular dimension of measure.

    I presume you mean to ask how we know that it exists as a dimension of measure, rather than asking how we know Time exists at all. The mathematical models of Relativity allow us to make certain...

    I know. I'm just honestly not understanding which particular issue is confusing, so I'm having difficulty figuring out what needs to be explained more.

    Whether we are talking about the A-Theory or...

    They really aren't. The authors are writing in the third person and at no point do they make it seem like they were eyewitnesses to the events. Even if one were to accept the traditional ascriptions...

    I literally just defined how they can be said to be in motion. When a thing is in different spatial positions at different moments in time, that is exactly what we mean by motion. That particular...

    I don't know if I would call him the best but he most certainly is exceptionally knowledgeable on the subject. Even when I disagree with him, I highly respect Dr. Habermas' scholarship.

    It was my first post in this thread. The first reply to the original post. Gary Habermas, an extremely well respected scholar who is also an Evangelical Christian, would not agree that Wallace's list...

    Anything which is in different spatial positions at different moments in time. Again, that is the very definition of locomotion.

    If you are asking if the universe as a whole is in motion, that's...

    I explicitly referenced a prominent and highly respected Evangelical Christian scholar in my complaints about Wallace's claimed "facts." How is that "no evidence at all?"

    This makes as little sense as trying to talk about the Fingertip you, the Big Toe you, the Stomach you, and the Eyeball you. You persist across multiple points in space. In exactly the same way, on...

    No, I said that I am not personally able to define Time in a manner which is both clear and unambiguous. I could certainly offer a definition of Time which matches well with our empirical data, but...

    I know plenty of people who are perfectly fine with the notion of the supernatural but who still don't agree that an actual Resurrection is the best explanation of minimal facts arguments.

    What do you mean by "active change?" It seems that all you are saying is that change on the B-Theory does not entail temporal ontological becoming, which I've already agreed to countless times. If...

    I've already defined change in a manner in which I thought we agreed-- in fact, I deliberately chose a definition for change which was given by a professed A-Theorist, Ed Feser. I'll offer it again,...
