Daniel replied to Will's discussion Goodness! Where? in the group The Great Debate
"I tend to answer the question "what is good" with the question "good for what?" But does that "what" actually embody the goodness in a purer way, and is that the subject of discussion? If so, is that goodness useful for…"

Penelope replied to Daniel's discussion Family Matters in the group Christian Men
"In my life, religious differences first came up due to religious practices.  I remember being about 6 and asking my Jewish aunt where she put her Christmas tree.  The idea that anyone wouldn't have a Christmas tree was unfathomable to…"

"This is a good question. I have a friend who is in a similar situation with his own daughter, though he would be more of an agnostic. He just doesn't know what to say when she is asking the question and doesn't want to push her to one side…"

"I think it would be ridiculous for you to lie to your niece and ridiculous for your sister to ask your to lie to her. The fact of the matter is that, in the real world, there are all kinds of flavours of Christians, all kinds of other religions, and…"

Allen Winston Cook replied to Daniel's discussion Family Matters in the group Christian Men
"Hi Daniel, Just be honest with her if she ask. It may open amazing doors for discussion. Children have a capacity for the spiritual which unfortunately the older we get we seem to loose. In fact Jesus said we should become like little children. He…"

Family Matters

If you'll bear a resident atheist asking for opinions, I'd like to pick your brains.I have a new niece, the first niece in my sibling group, who's mother (my sister) is a Christian, and I recently thought of something I had never considered before: what if my niece asks me about my religious beliefs?I can't see this happening any time soon, she's only 1, and I can't remember asking any of my aunts or uncles about religion, God, or anything spiritual in nature very seriously or deeply, but I…See More

Daniel replied to Herb Munson's discussion What Is Your Credulity Factor? in the group The Great Debate

Daniel replied to Herb Munson's discussion What Is Your Credulity Factor? in the group The Great Debate
"I would think that when that evidence is compelling enough (for the God of Abraham or C'thulu) the term would be dropped, but not before.  I don't see how this is cynical. Is it cynical to admit the lack of belief?"

Daniel replied to Herb Munson's discussion What Is Your Credulity Factor? in the group The Great Debate
"At what point would the calculated probability be high enough that it you would consider evolution (or abiogenesis) to be something other than God-caused? Just because a big (or tiny) number induces a wow factor doesn't mean it isn't…"

Daniel replied to Herb Munson's discussion What Is Your Credulity Factor? in the group The Great Debate
"Some pretty unlikely events indeed, yes, but that doesn't necessarily support creationism."
