Predestination + Free Will According to Molina, William Lane Craig

May 29, 20

How God sovereignly determines the world we live in, yet we have free will to make decisions that meaningfully affect our lives (according to Molinism):

My Sayings

May 29, 20

Pessimists are the only people who are happy to be disappointed.

——-

‘Hitler’s London Fallacy’ (a variant of Genetic Fallacy)

“Do you think London is the capital of the UK?”

“Yes.”

“Thats what Hitler thought too. So you agree with the Nazis?!!”

This demonstrates how ridiculous it is to toss out every point made by a less than savoury, trustworthy source. Even a broken clock can be right twice a day.

Every claim has to be judged independently.

——-

“False teaching is whatever I do not believe.”

This is my motto.

At first glance it sounds very arrogant and closed minded. But think it over and you will realize that it is perfectly reasonable, commendable, and EVERYONE holds this view.

Free Will & Never Sinning in Heaven

May 29, 20

How can believers retain free will in heaven (or the new earth), and yet not choose to sin? Perhaps my real life experience will help to illustrate.

I once ate frozen cendol pulut from a certain shop. That same day, I was wracked with horrible food poisoning – the worst I’ve ever had. I was in great suffering for hours even after being admitted into triage.

Will I ever eat ANYTHING from that shop again? NO!!!

But do I still have free will? Of course. It’s just that I’ve learned a painful, horrible, unforgettable lesson about the sensibility of eating food from that restaurant.

The same applies to believers in heaven. We will have experienced our lessons about sin while in this mortal life – painfully, regretfully – and learned to freely avoid sin forevermore after.

That Time the Quran Made Jesus MORE Divine

May 29, 20

It’s a well attested fact that much of the Quran’s stories about Biblical characters are taken from apocryphal sources. For instance, stories about Jesus’s infancy and childhood are from the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, a Gnostic fabrication.

But do you notice something unusual about the Quranic account below?

And a messenger to the Children of Israel, ‘Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah. – Sura 3:49 https://quran.com/3/49

Note the part about breathing into the clay to give it life. Where else do we see that happening except with God Himself in Genesis 2:7, breathing life into Adam?

And note that this detail is not in the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, where Jesus merely claps:

3 And a certain Jew when he saw what Jesus did, playing upon the Sabbath day, departed straightway and told his father Joseph: Lo, thy child is at the brook, and he hath taken clay and fashioned twelve little birds, and hath polluted the Sabbath day. 4 And Joseph came to the place and saw: and cried out to him, saying: Wherefore doest thou these things on the Sabbath, which it is not lawful to do? But Jesus clapped his hands together and cried out to the sparrows and said to them: Go! and the sparrows took their flight and went away chirping. – http://www.gnosis.org/library/inftoma.htm II, 3-4 (near the start of the page)

So the Quran added a detail that makes Jesus MORE divine, when the Quran supposedly denies Jesus’s godhood!

Gravity & the Trinity

May 29, 20

Allow me to ask you: What is ‘gravity’?

Most of us will probably answer that it is a force. After all, Isaac Newton described it as the force which makes an apple fall to the earth. You might even remember your high school Physics calculations for this, F=ma (Force = mass x acceleration).

But guess what, gravity is NOT a force. Rather, Albert Einstein stated that gravity is the bending & warping of spacetime itself so that objects that would travel in a straight line through space STILL DO travel in a straight line – it’s just that space itself is bent, so the object seems to travel around a large gravitational mass!

Does this make sense? Can you wrap your mind around it? Can you envision it? Even if you can’t, experiments proved Einstein correct and Newton incorrect. It is plain fact even if you can’t comprehend it.

Now if this is true for a fundamental part of the universe, then what’s so difficult about accepting the truth as revealed in God’s word – e.g. about the Trinity? There is one God but He is three persons. You might not fully comprehend it, but that in itself does not make it untrue or impossible.

(More info on gravity: https://www.science.org.au/curious/space-time/gravity )

Using Islamic Philosophy to Defend Biblical Theology

May 29, 20

Just like Paul in Athens used the prevailing worldview to present the gospel, many common Islamic criticisms of Christianity can be defended using concepts from Islamic philosophy.

1) Bila kaifa – Meaning ‘without how’, this was the term coined by Muslim philosophers to settle the issue of how the Quran can be Allah’s word, eternal, uncreated, yet not itself Allah – by not settling the issue, as it basically means there’s no understanding it. (To be fair, they needed it to stop the bloodshed of the Mihna over the issue.) Similarly, the Trinity may seem to escape comprehension – but bila kaifa!

2) Kun faya kun – Allah says “Be!” and it is. Allah can do anything he pleases. Similarly, although it may seem impossible that YHWH is one being in three persons or the infinite God could take on human form, nothing is impossible to God!

3) Tanzih – meaning transcendence. Unique, incomparable, beyond imagination or conception. “Nothing is like him” as Sura 42:11 states plainly. Similarly, although in human experience no single human being can be more than one person, God is not like anything conceivable.

4) Tawhid – meaning to unify. The Islamic doctrine of a singular, unitarian Allah. However this key word does not appear anywhere in the Quran, and in fact it took centuries after the death of Muhammad for Muslim philosophers to fully flesh out this doctrine by deriving the concept from the text of the Quran. Similarly, although the word Trinity does not appear in the Bible and it took centuries for the doctrine to be fully fleshed out by theologians and church councils, it is derived from the text of the Bible.

Our God of the Bible works in mysterious and quite cheeky ways!

Usage of YHWH vs Adonai in the Old Testament

May 29, 20

A pet theory of mine that needs more research: Often in the Old Testament, the reference to our Creator as Adonai (Lord) rather than YHWH (LORD) is used in passages that allude to the second member of the Trinity, namely The Son who takes on human flesh to become Jesus Christ.

Some examples of what I’m talking about:

YHWH says to Adoni: “Sit at my right hand,until I make your enemies your footstool.” – Psalm 110:1

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw Adonai sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. – Isaiah 6:1 (cross reference with John 12:41)

I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I myself will make them lie down, declares Adonai YHWH. – Ezekiel 34:15 (a very rare combination of the two terms!)

NB: Maybe now you also get a hint of why one of my pet peeves is OT passage citations where YHWH and Adonai are carelessly/ignorantly both rendered as Lord.

Ruth as the Reversal of Tamar

May 29, 20

A study into Ruth & Boaz, and how it is the anti-story to Judah & Tamar and Lot & his daughters. With lots of gematria values for those interested.

https://www.academia.edu/39775654/Tweets-turned-Notes_on_Ruth

“The past is therefore undone, and the manner in which it is undone is important to note. Whereas things go wrong in the case of Tamar, who sits at the gate to Enaim, and of Lot, who sits at the gate of Sodom, Boaz goes to the gate in order to do set things right (ch. 4).”

Second Amendment in Southern Thailand

April 19, 12

Tipped by hutchrun, excerpt:

Thailand’s Buddhists Take Up Arms Against Insurgency

A deadly Thai insurgency has Buddhists scrambling for guns.

…a deadly insurgency is terrorizing Thailand’s south. The separatist movement, made up of mostly ethnic-Malay Muslims, roils the region with daily threats of sectarian violence and has prompted many Buddhist villagers, and even some monks, to take up arms in self-defense.

“First Muslim people came to our village and asked to buy our land,” says Suphorn Nison, a soft-spoken Buddhist in his mid-40s. “But they became less diplomatic when Buddhist people declined to leave.” The following month, Nison says, two men entered a convenience store operated by Nison’s father and executed him with two shots to his head. Nison claims the gunmen were Muslim and intended to send a stern message. Most Buddhists in his village left, but those who stayed, including Nison, formed a neighborhood-security force.

That was in 2006. Today such community-defense units are ubiquitous in Thailand’s south. Nison carries a revolver with him at all times. Many other Buddhists have also armed themselves, including a demure 38-year-old teacher, an acquaintance of Nison’s, who prefers a light Glock .22.

HuaHui, a long-bearded villager, exemplifies the kind of self-appointed power that the militia system offers Buddhists. At the entrance to his restaurant, he sits behind a makeshift bunker, holding an M-15 assault rifle. He keeps a cache of weapons on hand, along with special bullets designed to overcome “the voodoo of insurgents.” He’s been the target of drive-by shootings and bomb attacks more than a dozen times, he says. In the latest incident, “a month ago gunfire struck guests.” HuaHui sometimes patrols his district in a pickup truck, paying visits to friends—both Muslim and Buddhist—and making his presence felt to those he suspects of being on the “wrong side.” He visited a group of Chor Ror Bor in a nearby village who said the hordes of Army and police are not enough to secure the area. Later that evening, cars passing along the entry road to the village were struck by IEDs and gunfire.

And here’s what happens when people don’t have ways to protect themselves, from older posts The Wolves of Pattani, Southern Thailand and Photos of Brutally Murdered Victims of the Southern Thailand Pattani Insurgency:

Pattani1a

A beheaded motorcyclist. A threatening warning note was found on the body, you can see it and the translation at Zombietime.

Pattani1b

The removed head left near the body. Gruesome…

Pattani3

A soldier after the terrorists had their way with him. I forget, which is the merciless, inhuman organization of oppression again? The Thai government?

Pattani4

Brutalized dead body, probably of a monk, found in a house in a very unnatural position.

Pattani5

A tiny censor box to blot out the gore from a victim left on the train tracks to be run over… But that doesn’t stop you from realizing “Oh **** where’s the rest of the body?!”

Pattani2

Worst of the lot – the viciously defiled body of a monk, so gory and heartless that basically the entire photo had to be censored to post it on my blog.

The above photos are sourced from Zombietime.com. The uncensored versions and more photos can be found there.

so turns out Bell wasn’t racist, he was just batshit crazy.

TMTCJayne:
To OBAMA’S ALMA MATER, HARVARD LAW!

Jim Treacher:
Natural-sounding dialog is racist.

Comment From Tee Zieldors
Harvard Law Tuition: $40,000 Sitting in a class taught be the guy who wrote Space Traders- Priceless

CAC:
be sure to read Bell’s other fictional work, “Ass Goblins of Auschowitz”. Just as subtle.

iowahawk:
All that was missing was Bootsy Collins descending from the Muthaship for a funkyass bass solo

Caleb Howe:
We didn’t land on plymouth rock! Plymouth rock got sucked into the sky by a white beam cast down from robot reagan’s star destroyer jr.!

Soledad OBriens Earpiece:
Not racist at all. I wil have a professor on tomorrow morning to explain why that is so.

Ed Wood:
I’m not the worst filmmaker ever! I’m not the worst filmmaker ever!

ace:
Well there you go. There was a Not Radical At All Movie from Obama’s intellectual mentor.

FilmLadd:
It should be remembered that “Space Traders” was directed by the highly oppressed Reginald Hudlin, who directed The Ladies Man, Serving Sara, and roughly 50 different episodes for large and small tv series. This man is being completely oppressed out of the business.

Slublog:
That movie makes me want to hug a racist. Like the president did.

FilmLadd:
I need a cigarette. Preferably Kools.

CAC:
For some reason, I have a huge urge to drink Remy Martin and switch to MCI.

Comment From Merovign
It’s typical liberal comedy: “You’re evil, you’re stupid, I hate you, why aren’t you laughing, don’t you get the joke?”

Jim Treacher:
Space Traders 2: Polemic Boogaloo

CAC:
Space Traders 2 – The Wrath of Chaka Khan

Dave in Texas:
Space Traders 2: Let’s Do It Again!

ace:
no seriously that was like a movie the Fat Albert kids would make as a prank and then sell tickets for a nickle a seat

CAC:
Ace there were a few guys in sombreros in the church scene. Trust me they tried to hit every stereotype.

Caleb Howe:
In the M. Night Shyamalan version of that movie, it turns out the aliens were actually Will Smith.

Aaron Worthing:
ace: in the original story its all black and white people. asians, hispanics, etc. barely exist. see here: http://allergic2bull.blogspot.com/2012/03/i-read-space-traders-by-derrick-bell-so.html

Dave in Texas:
Space Traders 2: Blackula in Space

CAC:
The sequel involved us giving up anyone who lived in Delaware. Since nobody would be outraged by that, it flopped.

Comment From El Kabong
In the Michael Bay version…shit just blows up

Jim Treacher:
See, because they thought if they made their pitch while appearing to us as Reagan, we’d be like, “Oh, okay.”

Caleb Howe:
In the James Cameron version of that movie, the aliens are only asking for Leonardo DiCaprio.

FilmLadd:
Note that this was directed by the highly oppressed Reginald Hudlin. He wasn’t just black-listed, he was melanin listed.

iowahawk:
No dogmas were harmed in the making of this film.

Aaron Worthing:
film: the story is even dumber. in it the aliens only want any person listed as black on their birth certificate or driver’s license, none of this color test.

Comment From Sammy316
Thanks Ace & et. al. for the afternoon racism. Nothing gets your point across like feeding stereotypes about yourself. It was a blast.

Comment From garrett
can we watch it backwards?

Comment From Al Sharpton
I didn’t see one muthafuckin racist thing in this film we much.

iowahawk:
Filmed on location in Academic Fever Swamp, MA

Caleb Howe:
In the Christopher Nolan version of this movie, the whole thing was a dream. OR WAS IT.

Dave in Texas:
I’m going to go hug my black neighbors now. Now is a good time, it’s early and they’re not hopped up on drugs

CAC:
It must have been hard having a cast made entirely of cardboard. Give the director some slack.

Comment From JFirch
I didn’t see the White Man’s Overbite, so it seemed incomplete.

Comment From Jesse Jr
How much does your campaign need for me to get star role in Space traders 2

CAC:
How they managed to make characters with fewer dimensions than a Michael Bay film astounds me.

Comment From Barack
Glad you liked my movie, bitches!
