Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

But I agree with Todd that Flew is more of a "philosophical deis[t]". And, since you call yourself a deist and constantly tilt against us atheists, Flew's 'conversion' is not what you make it out to...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

If you read all the posts on this forum, you'll find that Fred does not share its majority opinion. Here are Todd's views on this subject, which I agree with:

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

Cool. I agree that I can not get there from here, now; your 'predeterminism' must be something different from my point AGAINST the idea that the future is 'predeterminable', that is to say, we're...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

I'm sorry, I'm an engineer, and NOT by accident. IF there is something beyond determinism that adds 'free' to 'choice' then I'd like to know its source. If it's in the brain, then I'd assert it's...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

I would say that they were, indeed, fighting for freedom, and thank goodness they were. My present, their future, directly depended on it. Their brains felt the oppression, dreamed of a future...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

Ahhh, thank you! That makes perfect sense to me and makes sense of your earlier posts as well. But, just as I might be scaring folks away, you might be confusing folks away.

Knowing that the...

Thumbs down Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

No, TomJ would definitely not agree. Morality is burned into our DNA, even yours. There is nothing in the dictionary definition of moral that says anything about objective and I would argue the...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

Hmmm. My post #50, was actually written in reply to Margaret's post #47; as is shown in the hybrid display mode (but who else is going to bother to scroll through all that). But Fred's post got...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

Again, our agreement leaves us little to discuss. So, just in the interest of wasting more time ;), I'll offer a different example.

I woulda chosen an example more pertinent to this thread:...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

In my view, which many people have an instinctive disagreement with, #1 is not "free will". Something 'drove' you to shoot me, of all people. What was it? Did you have a brain tumor that told you...

Re: Intelligent Design and Why Not

I'm sorry that we agree so much, I don't have much here to quarrel with; the ride is even more pleasant while I consider the other passengers and think, "there but for a different soup go I", no...

Re: Free will

Hi Fred,

At the risk of having you call my post a joke again, I happen to be one of those true determinists. Any idea of free will that goes beyond physics is not something that I'm convinced of,...
