    Free will or Determinism?

    Claim to know and know are very different.

    Free will or Determinism?

    We know from science that that is not possible, of course matter can come from other matter but eventually there would need to have been something from nothing.

    The Big Bang created time so who or whatever created the Big Bang has to be timeless, so yes God is eternal.

    I don’t use the Kalam cosmological argument to prove Jesus, only to show belief in a god is logically coherent. Why Jesus exists is a totally different debate.

    Agree, apart from the last bit. We are bound by time whereas god is not. God knows our choices but we can still choose.

    You’re holding a supernatural being to natural laws by saying who created the creator.

    At least you’re honest. Without God you cannot claim to know anything.

    Not sealed no. God knows the outcome but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t change it. think of it like watching Leicester vs man united 5-3 to us. We know how it ended but the players had free will still.

    That’s the point, only with god can you be certain. Otherwise I could say the universe popped into being last Thursday and you came with all the memories you have, despite how ludicrous it sounds you can’t be certain it’s not true. To know something you have to know everything. I know I have hair because I can see it. I can see it because I own a mirror. I have a mirror because I remember buying it etc etc. To know A you have to know b, to know B you have to know C and this doesn’t stop at Z it is infinite. whonhas infinite knowledge? God

    Ok great I wasn’t sure. for me the only logical conclusion here is god. The Big Bang caused space and time so whatever caused it is without space and time. Sounds a lot like god right?

    Truth belongs to god. Without god you can only have illusory truth’s

    I might be wrong but I always had you down as a big science type. It’s comminly accepted that the universe had an absolute beginning. Do you mean instead that either something came from nothing or universes pop into being then pop out then pop back in a loop?

    How do you know that to be true?

    I don’t think it is possible to commit a crime like that and truly repent. Murder, maybe but killing millions over a long period of time shows there is and will never be remorse. nonetheless yes, repentance is enough.

    Repentance is more than just forgiveness, god would know they were insincere.
