Re: God Is Imaginary: Try Praying & Statistically Analyze Pr

especially when you truly believe EVERY SINGLE ONE of your prayers ends up getting fulfilled. Wrong. Read again. Then again, don't. I don't care. Just pointing out your error. Every prayer I have ever prayed--when I am filled with the Holy Spirit--has not only come to pass, but in most cases has co...

Re: William Lane Craig

A moment to me is a positive, infinitesimal amount of time. This is an ambiguous definition of moment. I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to say here. Part of the problem is I don't know what you mean by infinitesimal or time. Infinitesimal to me means something that is quantitatively or ...

Re: God Is Imaginary: Try Praying & Statistically Analyze Pr

Retarded people can't distinguish the difference between reality and fiction -- that doesn't mean fiction is real. True. It's still a contradiction to your statement that "God isn't Superman or a genie." No it isn't because genies are supposed to grant you anything you want, not give you ...

Re: William Lane Craig

I believe at1with0 is carelessly using the word moment. A moment or event to me is change; consequently, if there is no change going on then there are no moments or time. If all the change going on in the totality of existence froze, then that would be the equivalent of "time freezing." I'...

Moments that do not represent anything in reality, at least the kind of moments you're describing... This is why seconds can pass.

Re: William Lane Craig

I have, in fact. You just won't listen to reason. The article says that the set of natural numbers is actually infinite If the complete set of natural numbers corresponded to real objects, then that would be an example of an actual infinite. But the natural numbers are intrinsically conceptual and ...

Re: William Lane Craig

No, a circle has an actually infinite number of points. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potential_infinite "the abstraction of actual infinity involves the acceptance of infinite entities, such as the set of all natural numbers or an infinite sequence of rational numbers, as given objects" ....

Re: William Lane Craig

And by the way sleepwalker, (welcome, well met) at1with0 is a fully accredited mathematician, so if anyone in this entire forum understands "infintesimal" it would be him. ;) I'm going by what I've read so far from him and he doesn't seem to understand what infinitestimal means nor what p...

Re: William Lane Craig

Someone who believes that a circle contains a finite number of points A circle contains a potentially infinite number of points. Again, the issue is you don't know or understand what the difference is between a potential infinity and an actual infinity. or that physical objects have infinitesimal s...

Re: William Lane Craig

Infinity exists as an abstract mental category Yes it does. Mathematicians work with infinite numbers, for instance. But that doesn't mean actual sets of an infinite quantity exist. Unicorns can also exist in the mind. and you appear to be arguing that an actually infinity cannot exist, that infini...
