The original statement was that Christianity spread by and was enforced by violence, not merely that its history contained violence.
I don't think I've ever been told I'm wrong and then stood up for in one post. Kudos I guess.Couldn't turning it down so many times despite the unavoidable barrage of "chances" indicate the exact opposite?
Indeed. I'm in a good spot. G-d is G-d, and the "father" in Christian theology is the same G-d I pray to as a Jew. Ultimately I'm fine where I'm at.Well that certainty took long enough. Guess whomever is behind this account missed the fact that Gigaice is comfortable where he is spiritually.
"Home."And God seems to be sending the Hound of Heaven for you, to bring you home.
The term has been said to have parallel ones with Islam ("da'wah") and Buddhism (teaching the "Dharma"), so perhaps there is a broader term to encompass all of these actions?Seems like the only difference is that evangelizing is an attempt to convert someone to Christianity specifically.
Consciousness is an emergent property of the brain.
No, it's the opposite; it's more and more clear that changes to the brain cause changes to the personality, and that there is no aspect of thought that is not a function of the brain.
No neuroscientist even thinks about any supernatural causes for anything in the brain; they think about souls as little as biologists think about creationism, if not even less because there's no parade of clowns trying to get the existence of souls taught in public schools.
Also, I thought Christians were supposed to be against new age beliefs, which "everything supernatural is quantum" woo definitely falls into.
He is obviously a very dishonest man about many things, including about how smart others think he is:Jordan Peterson is obviously a very smart man,
Another objection came from The Times reviewer James Marriott, because the blurb included from his review quoted him calling the book “A philosophy of the meaning of life… the most lucid and touching prose Peterson has ever written.”
In a now-deleted X post, Marriott noted that the ellipse covered up that his full sentence was “A philosophy of the meaning of life which is bonkers.”
Thirdly, there was Suzanne Moore of the Telegraph, who was mostly favorable to the book two years ago, giving it four out of five stars in her review. She noticed, however, that book cover’s quote only read “Wisdom combined with good advice” when her actual quote was “Hokey wisdom combined with good advice.”
