Theism isn't logical?
Suppose there was a stick that was moved by the wind caused by the sea ad infinitum - eventually you are going to come to an unchanged mover (a causer of all things caused). Well, no. Eventually you are going to end up with a very well worn-down stick, then no stick at all.
From an a priori perspective, it could be argued that God can begat do you mean beget?
(give rise to) anything bar another God (because, by defintion, God is perfect) Why couldn't a god create another god?.
Good wouldn't be without evil and evil is really just the reduced concentration of goodness Are you positing homeopathic goodness here?
(by which complies with the moral parameters of God who has the standard of holliness Aren't holly trees and bushes all grown to a common EU standard of holliness these days?
) - and that is a result of finitude what is this word?
(the opposite of light isn't dark and the opposite of heat is not cold) Doesn't that depend on the context?.
Evolution suggests that you can put some watch parts into a bag, shake the bag for a few billion years and be able to pull out a fully working watch at the end of the process no it doesn't - it has nothing to say about inanimate objects
(given an infinite number of chances, yes it would happen) - but how can humans evolve from fish? Fish lay eggs and don't care for their young You should study the life cycle of the sea horse if you believe this
. Plus why are there still monkeys? Why are there still bacteria and other microbes? Because thy are well-suited to their environment. The same applies to monkeys - evolution does not say that newly-evolved species necessarily replace their ancestors.
- this is for those who beleive in the verbatim teachings of Darwin....
By the very defintion of dualism of mind and matter (think Decartes!!) the cognition is attributed to the immortal, immaterial soul which has the ability to transcend this entity. By the very process of electrical modulation and demodulation, the electrical signals that pulsate along the axons and dendrites can be changed (therefore you could be immersed into an alternate reality and decieved). This is the sort of pseudo-scientific gibberish that New Scientist devotes its Feedback column to laughing at each week.
...but I'm just giving you guys some food for thought...Or a source of amusement
