IN A MATRIX OR COMPUTER PROGRAM:
That conundrum only applies to the believer in atheist Dogma:
We Theists know for certain that we are not in computer programs,
but the believer in atheist Dogma has no way of knowing that
on his crippled atheistic worldview. Very sad!

Con

I accept. My position will be known for the following definition:

Humans do not need god to know if they are in the Matrix

Thank you all for so many kind and intelligent posts.

My engagement on this site was intended, from the beginning, to be a nothing more than a temporary experiment.

I didn't know specifically when it was going to end, until this evening: My girlfriend, Bhaktin Caroline, said something to me that inspired me to make tonight the end of the experiment.

Bhaktin Caroline matters much, much more than this website.

If you are still feeling overly attached after I leave, I apologize, but I will still be leaving nonetheless: I won't be engaging in any further debates, arguments, or conversations on this site, and nor will I be reading any further posts uploaded by its kind and intelligent members -- starting now.

You can argue amongst yourselves, from now on.

Good-bye! =)

"Without God, nobody could make an objective distinction between sane and crazy."

Also youraverageunivorn, it could be much worse. I just had a debate where a 71-year-old said that the US should kick the Mexicans out to start the Rapture, and then invade Mexico. He also said Jesus loves Mexicans, but Jesus is wrong. Weirdest debate I've ever had.
