Re: What makes your life worth living?

I love the brick testament. Because suffering is bad, Fluminator, and loss causes suffering. Why is suffering bad? Well, that's a philosophical question that I don't see the need to answer. I doubt that Jamiet99uk does either. I see my life's mission as to lessen the suffering of those around me. I'...

Re: What makes your life worth living?

Like why is it bad kids die? What makes you believe that? You can have fun setting up strawman to yell at, but it's all very unimpressive if you don't share your views on what is evil and bad. I agree kids dying is bad, but I have reasons.

What are yours?

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

I take everything on a case by case basis, and in the case of the mermaid, I think it's stupid at best to be upset about it.

Re: What makes your life worth living?

I suppose fundamentally because it is unjust. In a paradigm where we are created by an apparently* loving and just God, the death of a small child to a painful illness is an injustice. The child has done nothing wrong (contrary to the vile concept thatit was born sinful) and its suffering is an inj...

You'd like to know why the death of a small child from malaria is a "bad thing" ? This is something you'd like to have explained to you, is that correct? Yes please.

Re: What makes your life worth living?

I'll give the Christian interpretation since you don't fully understand their religious mythos and interpretation of God. The Bible's creation myth for humans starts with a earth full of animals/plants/water/all the rest. God (or the Creator) wanted a special species in His image. This was essential...

Kestas, just try to take a step back bro. I love playing devil's advocate (to the point half the forum thinks I'm a far-right troll) but this is not it. Even if everything you said about Disney doing this as some Machiavellian plot to generate controversy to make more money or publicly is true, wha...

-snip Rural Canada, actually. As for being more than a wife/mother... I'll let God correct anything I've said in error. Proverbs 31:10-31, KJV - Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoi...

Sure, you tell me how a loving God kills babies. Go ahead.
I'm Pro-Life too, so I question God on this a lot.

Re: What makes your life worth living?

In fact sending His only son to die as an atoning sacrifice for our sins, even though we did not love Him and rebel against Him, is love itself. Also, even just figuratively, I'm amused you think that sending your son to his death is the greatest act of love. What if I had a son, and I arranged for...

In regards to the article you linked, I haven't seen the show, but I agree if this group is all about racism and race purity, it is a little weird to make some of their group different races.

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

I hear more often that the actors are terrible or that the script is terrible or, such as with the new Little Mermaid, that the producers are pushing diversity solely for diversity's sake. All three of those faults are, in their own way, the faults of story. There's so much to comment on here and o...

This was a blast from the past to 2016 internet era conversations. I will say that my view on the OP subject has changed since it was first posted. I follow movie reviewers on youtube (because I never really watch movies and this is a more efficient way to still be connected to culture) and there is...

Re: Who bombed the Nordstream Pipeline?

Aside, environmentally this is a disaster, how much natural gas was in the pipes even while off? Possibly the highest peak of methane in history. Possibly the largest single event, but in the grand scheme of things I doubt it's particularly significant. The dirty secret of the gas industry is that ...
