Yeah, that was a pathetic attempt at a straw man, purposely or not.

Re: why does this forum care so much about religion

Well, OK. You are basically just re-asserting stuff that I disagree with.

Re: why does this forum care so much about religion

Are you really basing your whole argument on a quote by Einstein? The model's "ACTUAL MEANING" is not determined by observable predictions. Its meaning IN RELATION TO PHYSICS (observable pheneomena)...

Re: why does this forum care so much about religion

Another question for you. Are people with biological defects in their eye incapable of discovering "actually meaningful" truth, or claims, whatever?

How do we KNOW that your, or my, or anyone...

Re: why does this forum care so much about religion

So, by your own definitions, pure mathematics is only SUBJECTIVELY MEANINGFUL. This is extremely important, please take note of what I am saying. In other words (edit: by your definitions),...

Re: why does this forum care so much about religion

FROM THE OTHER THREAD. I WILL TRY TO SUMMARIZE.

Re: why does this forum care so much about religion

Subfallen,
I did not "leave" the thread. Sometimes I get very busy and cannot read 2+2, let alone post. If you notice, I likely have a gap in my posting history of a week or more. Further, when I...

OK, maybe I am paranoid. Could you, then, just show me what debate or discussion was meant to be elicited from the OP? To me, it seems like the OP was trying to rile up the atheists on here to talk...

Re: Really, honestly, how can you believe that old book???
