Not really.1. You start off immediately with the superiority complex. Well done. That was fast
No - you want your opponents to be mean so that you can pat yourself on the back about what a find upstanding person you are for standing up to those mean arrogant Christian bullies.You are oblivious to it, but to those whom you target with it, it sticks out like a sore thumb.
Sure: Newton. Mendel. Locke. A whole string of Jesuits who make up a disproportionate percentage of history's greatest mathematicians and astronomers. Many of history's greatest minds have devoted their intellect to both the pursuit of God and the world He made. That's not to say that religious folks are inherently more logical than atheists - only that there are many of them who are among our most logical, and who have advanced humankind because of it.2. Religious thinkers = some of the most rational ones, eh? Can you please provide some examples of this?
Post-Modernism (generality) is the belief system that really got it's kick after WWI, when an entire generation of intellectuals, raised on the certainties of the 19th Century, saw it vanish in the blood and mud of France. It became less of an elite-only movement later in the 20th Century, when Deconstruction (spend some time reading Derrida, it's interesting) and Relativism became a bit of an academic rage (Future historians, I think, are going to look back on the latter half of the 20th century as a very odd time in Human thought).3. There's so much wrong with this crap I don't even know where to begin. First of all, I'd like your personal definition of "postmodernism."
1. You are not, as near as I can tell, a "pro".And your second sentence is EXACTLY the arrogance and dismissiveness I was talking about earlier. Protip: Learn to properly analyze your opponent so that you may have a chance to critique him. Or as Jesus said, get the plank out of your own eye so that you can see the specks in others'.
2. "If it feels good, do it" is indeed a juvenile and self-destructive philosophy. Adults make a plan, follow through, and have the ability to delay gratification. Children do what feels good in the moment, and suffer consequences later.
3. For having claimed that there was so much wrong that you didn't know where to start... you haven't shown any. You have asked me to define a term and then shifted to an ad hominem.
Sure - and continues to grow in raw numbers. Both growth in raw numbers and maintenance as a percentage of global populace being antithetical to "dying out".4. Christianity, as a percentage of world population growth, has stagnated. These are facts, will, cold, hard facts. Do you accept or deny these facts?
I've never argued otherwise. I pointed out that the claim that Christianity was dying out is false.5. Wait, are you finally conceding that Christianity is on the decline in America?
To the extent that people are fooled by low-quality video's on youtube claiming that Jesus was Mithras or whatnot, sure.you think the public education system is to blame for the decline in Christianity in America?
Now this is interesting. Should I go get for you some of the better apologists, have you look at their material, and then we can both come back and report?Dude, OK, go watch some videos by DarkMatter2525, The atheist voice, or the Amazing Atheist. Try to refute their arguments. Go ahead, I'll be waiting
I float in and out sometimes.In fact, you should consider doing some debating in our Religion forum. See if your arguments will work there.
Christ spent zero time hating homosexuals - and a ministry on earth trying to reach them (and everyone else) with salvation if only they will repent. However, the requirement to repent is also in a Christian attitude, and one that Christ evinced.6. I know what Christlike attitude as because I can read a Bible. Christlike attitude is implied by verses such as 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, Matthew 6:9-13, and practically the entire Sermon on the Mount. I can tell you this much, Jesus spent a LOT more time reaching out to the poor and needy than he did hating on the ghey. (As a Christian, you do know this, right? ...right??)
