|About Me:||Testing everything and doing my best to hold on to the good. (1 Thess 5:21)|
|Activities:||Broadly speaking, I enjoy metaphysicizing and epistemologizing. Specifically speaking, I enjoy philosophy of religion and mind. I also like reading about the bible as well. Studying Japanese. Enjoying time with family and friends. Playing the occasional vidya game. Listening to music. Nature-watching. Starry nights are some of the best things ever.|
|Beliefs:||"What I have repeated again and again should be kept in mind: I am without authority and only a poet, an average man. I do not claim to be better than others, only that I am not bound by a pledge to the New Testament and am not an ordained man, either. No, in no way do I pretend to be better than others, but I do want it to be known that this is the way we carry on - I want some truth here and I want it said honestly, loudly, and clearly. But I do no pretend to be better than others. Therefore what the old Bishop said to me is not true - namely, that I spoke as if others are going to hell. No, if I can be said to speak at all of going to hell then I say something like this: if others are going to hell, than I am going along with them. But I do not believe that; on the contrary, I believe that we will all be saved, I, too, and this awakens my deepest wonder." --- Soren Kierkegaard|

|Music:||I had a ghetto boy bop, a Jay-Z boycott/ 'Cuz he said that he never prayed to God, he prayed to Gotti/ I'm thinking "golly, God, guard me from the ungodly"/ But by my 30th watchin' of "Streets is Watchin'"/ I was back to givin' props again and it was botherin'/ 'Bout as uncomfortable as an untouchable touchin' you/ The theme songs that dudes hustle to/ Seem wrong but these songs was all becomin' true/ And it was all becomin' cool.../ -- Lupe Fiasco|
|Quotes:||"Let no one persuade you that there is in Him a little darkness, because of something He has said which his creature interprets into darkness. The interpretation is the work of the enemy--a handful of tares of darkness sown in the light. Neither let your cowardly conscience receive any word as light because another calls it light, while it looks to uou dark. Say either the thing is not what it seems, or God never said or did it. But, of all evils, to misinterpret what God does, and then say the thing as interpreted must be right because God does it, is of the devil. Do not try to believe anything that affects you as darkness. Even if you mistake and refuse something true thereby, you will do less wrong to Christ by such a refusal than you would by accepting as His what you can see only as darkness..."|

This topic can become mired in cross-purposes of vocabulary, so I will allot the first round for acceptance, definitions, clarifications, etc.Definition: An omniscient entity is one which lacks no knowledge of any information, whether necessary or contingent, for at least one point of its existence.I posit this so as to not definitionally exclude different versions of omniscience from the argument. Specifically, this definition is designed to not immediately rule out: anterograde omniscience; &l...
(A) Clarifying My PositionI am writing this argument to a particular audience of Christian adherents who resort to the theological (mostly soteriological) position of Christian Universalism, and will be defending my own view of what’s known as “Christian Exclusivism”. In contrast to what I hold, Universalism can be defined as the “chief claim that God is revealed to all and related to all in some way” (R. Plantinga, “Christianity and Plurality”...
I. IntroductionI’d like to thank my opponent for debating me on this interesting topic, and look forward to an enlightening exchange.So, here’s the deal. I’m going to show you that God  doesn’t exist. Your efforts to find a way out of my argument will fail, but I need you to try anyways. Your de-conversion will only be as real as the effort you put into the debate.II. The Argument If God exists, then any child that suffers will ultimately benefit from it. [Premise]...
IntroductionI thank philochristos for agreeing to debate me on this very interesting topic and I suspect it will one of kind (at least on this website)!In this debate I will be arguing that if God is sovereign in the Calvinist sense, then universal salvation/reconciliation* should be true. This debate will be rooted firmly within the context of Christian theology - specifically the Reformed/Calvinist** branch of Christianity - so many propositions shall be taken for granted. Some would be that G...
This debate is simple and I hope to keep it this way. The Problem of Evil is widely debated. I am not disputing that there is evil here. I am disputing that the problem of evil is excuse enough not to believe in the Christian God. That is, to present it as an opposition to the validity of God. I doubt the need of definitions, hence I will not provide one. Rather, I rely on the integrity of my opponent, whoever he/she may be. Rules 1. No trolling/vulgarities. 2. No plagiarism 3. Comment...
