    I like Linger. I like the whole album. In fact, I am going to listen to it now.
    Analog Spark reissue cut from the master tapes that sounds better than my 1993 Island pressing. I would hate it too if...

    Heaven is like a celestial North Korea, where everyone spends an eternity singing praise for the Beloved Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-Yahweh and his ill-begotten undead clone Kim Jong-Jesus. But unlike...
  4. You didn't answer my question. How do you know...

    You didn't answer my question. How do you know Christ was a true prophet? What criteria did you use to make this decision?
    Do you consider Mohammed or Joseph Smith to be true prophets? If not, why...
  5. With love, there is usually a physical person,...

    Faith in God does not work on scientific principles. Love doesn't work on scientific principles either. Does that invalidate love? Both are intangible concerns; science is involved with tangible...
  6. Perhaps you should go back to the source and read...

    Perhaps they were rather misquoting. People leading the way, having more of a politcal and power ethic than one of Christ.

    Would you rather be living in a stone age culture grinding dry sticks to make fire, and worshiping the gods of the trees, the caves, the rivers and the mountains; or in the modern world where you can...

    Ah - not for all of us. Actually, not for most of us. Only the most conservative believers are fixated on those ideas. There is nothing unbiblical about evolution in any subject; I have stated that...
  9. How do you tell the false prophets from the true...

    Forgive me for interjecting, but I pretty much agree with Ruths posts. The reasons are easy - I don't doubt Ruth would agree with me that we both wouldn't want to be connected with prosperity...
  10. Intangible, as in cannot be observed and tested....

    That is what I just said. One is tangible, one is intangible. So there is no conflict there as they are concerned with different spheres.

    Before I take the time to answer you item by item, it would probably enable better understanding on your part if you read a thread I started a few years ago, and in particular this post of mine in...

    What is your opinion? That is not clear. The universe is a violent and chaotic place, and a vast majority of the universe, including a majority of our planet is inhospitable to life. Do you disagree...
  14. The only criteria for being an atheist is a lack...

    The only criteria for being an atheist is a lack of belief in gods. That's it. Everything else is unrelated, and atheists can and do hold widely varying opinions on subjects that do not relate to...

    Two new Mofi one-steps arrived this morning, and they are going on the table for a listen tonight. Expensive as they are, I own every one-step Mofi has released, and in every case have found them to...

    In the context of a debate or discussion, I have very little interest in what someone believes, I care primarily about what someone can demonstrate with facts and reason. Most discussions I have had...

    Bill is a professional entertainer who has a show on HBO that ridicules Christians and other assorted right wing zealots. He is NOT an expert on the Bible or ancient mythology. He was very likely...

    The universe is what it is. The term faulty implies that something, in this case the universe, is unable to perform some function for which it was designed. Since there is no evidence that the...

    Spoken like a true ignoramus. Any good lawyer will advise you to never consent to searches of your person, your car or your home, without a warrant. This is exactly the kind of attitude that gets...

    Perhaps you should take it up with the film maker and the persons who wrote and approved the script. I've seen the movie, and I don't think the director intended to create a serious documentary fully...
