  1. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    It is since that's not what I argued. You can't just misrepresent what I argued, which was quite simple, ignore the very definition of what a religion is, and then talk about how there is a guy...

  2. Re: Higher speed limit for electric cars to stimulate sales?

    Attacking the situation is. Attacking the tools is not. Don't be against electric cars. Be against lack of energy plans in electricity production, the same way you'd be against lack of energy plans...
  3. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    Well, first of all, atheism does not represent that logic system exclusively while theism represents belief system exclusively. Both try to answer the same question and both use belief in them. The...
  4. Re: Higher speed limit for electric cars to stimulate sales?

    Similar arguments can be made for any source. If you don't make a plan anything you can do can fail.
  5. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    Not at all. The point was that irrational rejection of any connection to the "religion" label creates a setting of us vs. them. Most theists would be against sectarianism when asked at face value but...

    What I'm talking about is fairly simple. It's ok if you don't find logical visualization (or whatever the term is in this case) to be an important thing and choose to treat an issue as if it's being...

    If Ultron hacked into the PA system then there would be a source for the sound. You wouldn't simply hear a voice in your head (though even that would feel like it has a source point). It would only...

    Re: Avengers: Age of Ultron

    That would still have a source. The way it was done in the trailer, it felt like they simply copy pasted a sound file irrelevant to the setup.
  11. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    Not really. Say, if you don't believe in a god that created the universe then you believe that the universe was not created by a god and that there is no god. That in itself is still a set of beliefs...

    Re: Avengers: Age of Ultron

    That looks like the video they've shown at the comic-con.

    The thing that's a little bit disappointing for me is how Ultron's voice has no source. I love James Spader's voice and love how they're...

    Re: Terminator: Genisys (2015)

    Why can't they make a movie like Salvation that is set in the future as a whole? The Terminator story is not just about time travel.

    I watched the movie. It was nice. Why wouldn't they continue that?
  15. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    Atheism doesn't mean lack of religion. That's a new though.
  16. Re: Higher speed limit for electric cars to stimulate sales?

    I understand and welcome the desire to stimulate electric car sales but this simply doesn't make sense. It violates the whole idea behind having a speed limit.

    A better option would be stuff like...
  17. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    Which is the point. Atheists are no different than theists though many certainly behave as if they're special and immune to those factors.
  18. Re: Atheistic Churches look for new non believer members..

    Not really but it would be if they were thought to be superior to people who believe in a god(s).

    It is semantically sound. It's just you, Taiji, that seems to read it backwards and argue on it from a pov that doesn't make sense. It's a fairly simple question that doesn't require such a take.

    Neither Transoxania nor Chorasmia are located as being part of the steppes in the maps you've provided. You don't have a single fact that supports your claim about the steppes.
