    Not having thought about an issue is less intellectually dishonest than deliberately accepting and defending the wrong answer.
  2. Important for what? It's important for judging...

    You're right that there's a difference, I just don't think it's an important difference. It's a bit of an argument from popularity or convenience.

    I think that if you asked 99% of catholics if...

    There are no excuses now.

    They could always say there were fisheye lenses over the windows or something. They are nothing if not creative.

    In my opinion that would not settle the issue. Some flat earthers are trolls, and some are so heavily invested in the earth being flat that abandoning that position would cause them terrible...

    Given the current culture, there's likely to be a major difference between the psychology of a typical Catholic and the psychology of a typical flat earther. A Catholic, typically, is simply...

    Hitler: A Study in Tyranny by Bullock.

    I got to the "good" part where he acquires power and starts having people murdered a week or so ago, and now he has his eye on the Sudetenland. There's also...
  9. Good to know, thanks.

    Actually, we do. All new applicants to the board have their email, IP, and username run through a spam/bot detector. It doesn't work to catch all of them but it's pretty good. Presently, about 99% of...

    My question is mostly about the investigate part. How would that happen?[/QUOTE]
    I don't think we have a special bot detector tool, we would just look for signs that they were a bot (like you would)...
  11. You should report the posters you think are bots....

    You should report the posters you think are bots. The moderators will investigate, and if they do turn out to be bots then presumably they will be banned immediately.

    What do you think of this approach?

    We all arrive at adulthood with two classes of beliefs:

    1. Knowledge
    2. "Stuff we've heard"

    Knowledge is something we can show to be certain beyond a reasonable doubt. That is, we have...

    If nothing is objectively true, then the claim that nothing is objectively true isn't objectively true. It's just your opinion, which anyone is free to dismiss or deny.

    The weird thing is... if the resurrection would violate physics, why isn't Christianity already disproven?

    We can deduce from the laws of physics that there was no resurrection. That's what...

    David Hume came up with a speculative and primitive version of the theory of evolution almost a priori in the Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion. So, in my view, the reasonable position for a...

    If it's the laws of physics, which we can verify today, versus a handful of miracle stories from thousands of years ago, I know what I'm betting on.

    Besides, you presumably want us to base our...
