ICDTAD: Kevin, Sweetie/Arun, Hon

Leave it to a question about nihilism to attract a crowd willing to die on a hill for literally everything and nothing at the same time. The question in question was of the troll variety, asking if Christians can be nihilists. Nihilism is broadly defined as the rejection of all religious and moral principles, upholding… Continue reading ICDTAD: Kevin, Sweetie/Arun, Hon

Rapid-Fire Rabid Faithfuls

Ever heard the phrase, "learn to internet"? Once upon a time, when I worked in a mobile carrier's call center, a curious behavior cropped up more than once. I would tell people the web address for the company, and next thing I know I'm being read ads for multiple carriers at crazy once-in-a-lifetime discounts and… Continue reading Rapid-Fire Rabid Faithfuls

Pwager Ewert’s Safe Bet (A Prologue)

Disclaimer: There's been a rather major revelation (no pun intended) in the time between when this was written and when it's being posted.

Don’t Talk To Me About Life

At the risk of sounding like I'm wishing death and misfortune on someone, I have to wonder what this guy's tune may or may not change to when he gets fired from his job or finds out he has cancer or that he's being sued for sexual harassment and there's hard evidence to demonstrate as… Continue reading Don’t Talk To Me About Life

You’ve Got This That I Gave You

Let me start by offering two different perspectives on theodicy, two sides of the same coin, if you will. The first is from a Mormon missionary I met some time ago talking about all the things that people go through that would seem to indicate God doesn't care about you. The short summation of it… Continue reading You’ve Got This That I Gave You

No True Argument From Ignorance, Part II

I do appreciate the effort, but please try to think through what you’re saying before committing it to the forum.  “Ok, do to me, there is nothing for an… Continue reading No True Argument From Ignorance, Part II
