You earn respect you don't just get it arbitrarily. I was civil, whats to apologize for.No it doesn't. You're free to disagree with me, but it's disrespectful to try to twist my words. Since it seems you won't acknowledge that and do the honorable thing by apologizing, I'm out.
Do you believe in a thing or not??????
I have no beliefs. I have knowledge. It is foolish to have beliefs. Beliefs are unfounded and always in error. Knowledge falsifies beliefs, which leads to greater certainty and accuracy of thought.Do you believe in a thing or not?
I know the earth is not flat. All the data verifies that. Thus I have no need to simply accept it without evidence.In other words ... is there anything that you 'believe' outside of your 'actual experiential knowledge'. Do you believe the earth is not flat ... do you know the earth is not flat ... do you accept the earth is not flat?
The word "sin" almost invites the word "shame".So back to the sin 'concept' ... relative to a sense of 'sin' - speaking for myself - would be a sense of 'shame'.
