SMH. You are starting to become just too disingenuous for me. I can't just sit back and have people continuously make false statements as it relates to stuff that I know is true.

I just can't do it, as much as I respect you and enjoy our sparring, . :wave:
As happened in my thread of conversation with you, either put up or stop making accusations that people are saying things they are not. You have been called on this by multiple people now and have yet to provide quotes that would quickly put us in our place. The only 2 options seem to be that no-one has made such quotes or you can't be bothered to find them.

You thinking people have said or implied something does not make it so. Post the quotes and we will declare you right and retract our complaints. Post the implications and I imagine those quoted will explain what they really meant and you can discuss it. I mean come on, I'll even help you out. Click on the Search button and start looking. It shouldn't take you too long.

I think from now on whenever you post this 'brute fact' nonsense, I will do as you do and "?"/SMH/LOL

Now, can we get back to discussing conservation of energy/TOE or something remotely related to the OP rather than the rabbit hole we seemed to have landed in?

Why would you think my response was anything but genuine, even if you think it is false? You do realize that "stuff that you know is true" isn't necessarily "stuff that I know is true," right?

If someone stated the Earth is flat, he is quite simply incorrect, but that doesn't mean he is disingenuous if he truly believe in a flat Earth. This isn't hard to understand.
I just can't do it, as much as I respect you and enjoy our sparring, . :wave:
You kept attacking my character, despite my continual protest, I am not sensing any respect from you.

No. Not at all.

Very much content.

I could just say "I don't understand what you are saying."...but a simple "?" seems to sum it up just fine for me.
Inigo Montoya wrote: I'll help you out with one that illustrates the point: Name something that exists that only exists by way of sound argument.
Answer: God.

To demonstrate this point, I challenge you to a debate on the MOA. If you accept the challenge, PM me and lets discuss the parameters of the debate, where there shouldn't be any confusion or mishaps.

Honestly, I think my work here is done.

In one post you have agreed to remain content positing the idea that gods spring into existence the moment a sound argument is made in favor of their existing.

This is nothing short of dumbfounding. And captured for as long as the forum exists.

Secondly, you've just declared your god to exist only by virtue of sound argumentation.

You did those things. And are content. What more could I hope for?

As to a head to head on the MOA, I have to ask if you were present for the two against Riku and Wiploc. You know, the two you forfeited after multiple rounds of logic that just wouldn't go away? I see no point in doing it a third time, but it's your reputation. PM me if you just can't stand it.

Call it what you want. The fact of the matter is, the conclusion "therefore, God exists" is based upon the true premises which preceded it. So if you have a problem with the conclusion, then do something about the premises.

But, we both know you can't.

No one is saying that God "springs into existence the moment a sound argument is made"...but if God doesn't exist, then the premises of the argument have no business being true.

But they are true..as the premises, in their truth value, reflect reality...whether you like it, agree with it, believe it...or not.

I was more than present. I put in work on both of those guys.

Sure, so much logic coming at me that I just couldn't keep up, huh? SMH.
Inigo Montoya wrote: I see no point in doing it a third time, but it's your reputation. PM me if you just can't stand it.
It really doesn't matter to me...I'm not losing any sleep either way. I am just saying; you act as if you are so caught up on the idea of the existence of God being proven based upon good ole fashioned sound/reason...and I am saying; there is a perfect argument for the existence of God which seeks to prove the existence of God based on sound/reason ALONE...and that is the MOA.

So, the challenge has been made. If you accept the challenge, fine. If not, that is fine too. I already did my thang on the MOA thread, anyway.

Anything else is Scooby snacks.

Ok. One more try.


Does the soundness of an argument for a god's existence influence whether a god actually exists?


As to the rest of your post, SMH LOL.

Classic FotK exchange.


Watch this. I'll grant the conclusion follows from the premeses and the argument is sound.

Now...

Does the soundness of the argument make your god's existence a fact?
