Re: All atheists should be nihilists

The only nihilists that I’ve ever encountered were from ‘The Big Lebowski’. https://64.media.tumblr.com/2ae81c112f3a838fc38391110dc9d372/0cac2f48ca8d9b6c-f8/s250x400/3bd55722bc85c7e2900000c98528b22ef16023cc.gifv Nietzsche actually thought nihilism to be the bane of existence that Christianity unique...

Re: There can be no evidence that Mormonism is false

I just wanted to quickly comment that I’m starting a new job at a different institution and it has been making demands on my writing time. So I wanted to get Part 1 out there before too much time elapsed. Part 2 will cover the “why” and “how” someone would want to claim a belief in God is non-infere...

Re: There can be no evidence that Mormonism is false

Wow, what a load of horse puckey. :lol: Yes, this Mr. Stak selection of W.L.C. shows there is no difference than with Dan Peterson's approach... :D I have to disagree, I think both approaches are as different as night and day. PART 1 From my perspective, the field of Mormon Studies labors under the...

Re: There can be no evidence that Mormonism is false

DrStak, I'm trying to see it, but I don't see much in these quotations that takes Craig any distance from the views expressed by Dr Peterson. What am I missing? You and I were not comparing DCP to WLC, we were comparing Paulogia’s comments about evidence to what WLC believes about the nature eviden...

Re: There can be no evidence that Mormonism is false

Ultimately, I don't know. He's not a yes/no answer type of person. Depending on his audience, he may say something like this... Not bad. The following comes from his 2008 edition of ‘ Reasonable Faith ’, but I want to remark briefly that this is a book aimed for a general audience and he has to sum...

Re: There can be no evidence that Mormonism is false

I can see the conflict you are pointing out between the two statements. I suspect that Peterson is aware and is separating the two statements on a more fundamental level. I did not think he was trying to base his axiomatic the church is true upon the evidence compiled in the first statement. His be...

Re: Nelson: “Don’t pollute [your testimony] with the false philosophies of unbelieving men and women…”

Why does it matter you are female? Please explain. It better contextualizes the social dynamics in play. If Stak doesn't know i am 1) a female, and 2) a professional colleague of Kishkumen, then i understand. Telling women to privately solve public issues is an old school approach that is not valid...

Let’s try from the beginning. Do you think Craig would answer this question in the affirmative or negative? "I don't know" would be an acceptable answer.

Re: Nelson: “Don’t pollute [your testimony] with the false philosophies of unbelieving men and women…”

I got a hot take on Kishkumen. https://64.media.tumblr.com/2ae81c112f3a838fc38391110dc9d372/0cac2f48ca8d9b6c-f8/s250x400/3bd55722bc85c7e2900000c98528b22ef16023cc.gifv The board is dominated by Ex/Post-Mormons that have an atheistic bent, which is just fine with me, but an unfortunate effect is that ...

Re: 2022 Fair Conference is steaming now

Wow, Tarik must check both boxes that nobody in the conference checked so far. Pretty cool. It's tempting to go that route, just say Mormonism doesn't meet classical definitions of God etc., it's a pretty high cost though. For one, the Mormon God can't solve any philosophical problems that God is c...
