Theist here

Hello.

I'm 28 years old and I love Christian apologetics, natural theology, and philosophy of religion.  I'm also trying to teach myself physics. 

I have a bachelors degree in philosophy, but I received in 2005.  My profession has very little to do with my degree, but I still study this stuff on my own. 

I'm a huge fan of classic rock (Pink Floyd, Van Halen, Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC).

Welcome

 

 

 

                  Now jump right in, I'm not into philosophy myself but others on site do. btw you do know of course that jesus was a fictional charactor. Made up of several legions and itinerate preachers.

Why don't you believe they are worldly and evil?

You can check those at the door. Not much use here. Kind of like bringing an imaginary set of steak-knives to a gunfight.

I hear that happens a lot to people with philosophy degrees. My brother just got one as well, and he's had to take a job at Pizza Hut. He's quite depressed about it.

Anyway, have fun here !

Welcome to the forum. I also

Welcome to the forum. I also just got my B.A. in Philosophy as well. I am a student mostly of the existentialists, predominantly the atheist side but I do also enjoy reading Kierkegaard, Buber, and Tillich. But you are more than welcome to offer your ideas here.

Well, your taste in music redeems you somewhat. Now instead of burning you at the stake, I'll have to do something more human, like lethal injection. Besides, my good friend Hannibal Lector gave me a recipe for human liver and you cant burn the heck out of that and expect it to taste good.

What on Earth do you want to study physics and all that other stuff for, when the answers are all in God's Word, the KJV1611?

How can you stand all that perverse, atheistic noise? Don't you worry that Jesus will damn you for endorsing Satanism? All of those bands hate Jesus. Do you hate Jesus too?

Give up all that sinful nonsense and let Jesus back into your heart.

Have you been baptised? God wants you to be baptised.  

Mark 16:16 (King James Version) 16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

No. My parents love me and care about the destiny of my immortal soul, so they taught me straight out of the KJV1611. If your parents cared about you they would have homeschooled you as well, and kept you as far away as possible from secular institutions where they teach lies and hate the Lord.

To clarify, I recognize that this discussion board does have some intelligent posters and I've spoken with a few of them in the thread re: the ontological argument. 

Unfortunately, for every Quentin Smith, there's someone rude, uneducated, and closed minded like Billy Bob Jenkins.

Why do you hate Christians? Don't you want to go to Heaven with me?

...bringing an imaginary knife to a gun-fight.  I like that; may I use it?

My head is neither in the clouds, nor in the sand. I hold it high and make good use of it to sense, wonder about, consider, treasure, and attempt to understand my reality.
