For tens of thousands of years, humans lived for 20 or 25 years before they died of microorganisms they didn't even know existed.

Christians believe that Heaven watched this for 98,000 years and then suddenly decided to intervene 2,000 years ago with a sacrifice in a remote part of Palestine.

This can’t be believed by a thinking person.

I think I need to log off before I suffer a fit of apoplexy.


I think you're reading too much into the arguments. They don't argue for the God of any specific religion such as Christianity, and they aren't really concerned with details in scripture which must be taken on faith. They are philosophical arguments which appeal only to "common sense" or experience of nature; things which most reasonable people believe regardless of whether they're religious.

The argument of Motion utilizes the same principle as his other 4 proofs -- something cannot exist from nothing; there must be something that "pre-exists" for anything to be -- that something is God.  All the logically mandatory aspects of God flows from this concept.

We can sum it all up in a very simple sentence:

Because I exist, God MUST exist.

If we wish to be quaint we could say:

I think, therefore God is.

He is called the "Angelic Doctor" because not only are his arguments so intellectually satisfying but because they also contain a mystical component -- contemplating his work unifies us with the Heart of God! :D

Roulette Systems / Re: Slow mehod for one street.

Yes here is no progressions before a hit!   The pure negative progressions, should rise the stake at 12th spin, and that could work, but it could as well be long waiting before a hit. If it should take 144 spins the drowndown  betting one just would have been 144, and not much more as if we doing a pure negative progression, which is faster win if we hit otherwise a big loss.

The method relay of a street should seldom sleep long, and after hit not long again and again. We expect a cluster at some point then we hit twice in a row.

If we hit after 30 spins, we are back in balance only 30, we then bet 3 units. If a double we are on track.
Compare to a pure negative progression!

Roulette Strategy Discussion / Re: Small wins per session

Sorry Scepticus, we see things very differently. I don't force people to do anything. I give an opinion, advice or suggest a way forward. How you use what I present is really up to you. If you don't want to use it then dump it and move on. Nobody is holding a gun to your head and I am not being light hearted about this at all.

The way I play is my perogative and if I choose to use many methods then so be it. I take responsibility for how I fair at the casino. I will never blame anyone for my losses.

The weakest argument I think is the moral argument. Moral duties are defined mainly by the society, not religion.

I agree. Of them all, I personally think the most convincing is the argument from contingency, but there is another argument not in the list which is my favorite : the argument from motion by Thomas Aquinas.

Quote
The last two videos about suffering and evil are more empty of substance because, specifically in the last one, the narrator uses as premisses background from The Bible which makes those premisses pretty hard to validate, logically.

Yes I think most people find these weak. It's very hard to maintain the belief that there is a supremely good and powerful being and at the same time so much suffering. It's been said that the decline in Christianity in Europe owes much to the first world war; where suffering was experienced on an unprecedented scale. And of course later events in the twentieth century only made things worse.

Even though we may have discovered a system that wins, we also know that it has its weaknesses and can be improved.  Is there knowledge out there that is superior to what we have discovered?  Very most likely.

I suggest to start a new topic, for new challenges or if the discussion goes beyond the topic.
Long threads are hard to follow for the reader.
