QuoteWould you say that your belief in the "Big Accident Theory," the notion of the Cosmos owing existence to chance, is based on objective evidence? Since I do not have such a belief, there is no answer to that question. I believe that the work of scientists, astro-physicists whose work I have read about and who have studied this has established a large body of facgtual evidence about

QuoteSusan, is it just because of my biblical belief, that you seem so angry? Wil you please, please, stop all this talk of anger, upset, etc. I have severe sight loss. Almost all the interests and activities I would like to have followed in retirement had to be put aside, discussion groups being one of the main ones. There was one group locally but it was all political and became so boring. F

Quote Susan. You've written enough pedantic commentary on Enigcom's writing style alone that could fill a book. Between that and what you've written about Tom, in recent months it seems like this is the only thing you write about. Pick out where you think I have instructed. Susan

QuoteTrue psychic information seems to be much more situational. In my experience, circumstances seen to have played a part. What the experiences tend to share in common are features that demonstrate very real effects that the secularist paradigm cannot explain. So many trendy terms and phrases. '*True* psychic information? What method do you use to decide whether the information which, in the f

I'veQuote read your posts for enough years to support: "she has closed her mind to these things long ago" Now, I agree, from previous comments that you've made that you know a great deal about the psychic world, but there is no doubt that your responses reveal the total absence of a science background. I do so hope that nobody is taking actual or active notice of your self-sa

Quote You gish gallop (run from topic to topic) and butt in with a few red herrings. Anything to get in a few evangelical atheist tid bits. And of what relevance is this personal rmark to the topic? what does it add to the discussion? Answer - nothing. It is more likelely to reflect adversely on you.

QuoteNothing will convince Susan, You keep on repeating this false statement, and I'm going to call it a lie because you should know that it is untrue. Okay, one last time: as soon as one objective fact or piece of objective evidence, independent of personal bias, becomes available, it will immediately change sceptics, non-believers, etc to believers because they wil know that what they are bel

QuoteGish gallop away, Susan, but let the rest of us try to explore and learn in the differing perspectives of each OP--comparing, contrasting, and supporting with relevant, reasonably brief sources. and if you think that your constant references to Christian interviwews etc etc is not proselytising for your faith and demonstrating, I think, a confirmation bias, then I'll be very surprised

And this post of yours is another example of your trying to convince yourself of the validity of your faith belief by believing that because you claim the support of science, your views should be considered as objective. /Did I at any time say that this Jonathan did not have the experiences he talks of?

And most of the things that I have come to realize are from translating the parts of the Bible that the church argue about with a strohms dictionary and figuring out what makes sense.

By the way, I managed to work out which post yours was responding to, but a quoted line at least of the post being responded to would be most helpful for me, because of my lack of any reading vision and having to use SuperNova software.

QuoteLet's try to help James explore his interesting ideas--which are very much in the Graham Hancock spirit. Exploring his ideas is okay, especially as he seems to be heading in the direction of trying to see them more clearly and less subjectively, but to say they are true if and when they are evidently false would be hypocriticl in the extreme. But as he has ideas which are quite entrenched a

QuoteVery interesting experiences that suggest some sort of spiritual contact. Only if your personal definition of spiritual includes something in the imaginary realm of the supernatural.
