RE: Atheist hypocrisy and obsession questions
Perhaps Skippy here is trying to have us argue "for" his perceived notions of "abstract" so he can then employ them to argue for a god.

Fool's errand.


Try this, do you believe a "house " is concrete and a "home" is abstract?
While the term home might be considered abstract what defines it is all concrete, i.e. shelter, a gathering place, where love ones live etc.

That applies to a country as well. A far cry from the "God" abstraction.

What is the objective reference of the concept "God"?

I don't know. doesn't everyone have their own subjective concept of what 'god' is or isnt?

RE: Atheist hypocrisy and obsession questions
A "country" is an actual assemblage of people in a specific geographical location with very specific qualifications, recognized by the entire world as such, (laws, and boundaries etc). A "god" has no coherent generally recognized definition. They are totally different. But thanks for the vocabulary word for the day. Unfortunately for you, almost all of us know what a "reification" means, and even though it's your new "big word" for the month, we're not at all impressed. Weeping

"Home" can also be concrete as the place where people like Auntie invariably end up.

RE: Atheist hypocrisy and obsession questions
Next time you are arrested at the boarder by the Boarder Patrol and slapped into prison for having and transporting any number of various contraband items, I'd LOVE to see to faces of the boarder agents when you start whining that they have no right to detain you as they're acting on a "reification fallacy". Facepalm
I think you may have a few hourse to contemplate what a "country" actually is, smart-ass.

RE: Atheist hypocrisy and obsession questions
Hey Bucky,
This is from map maker Rand McNally:

On physical maps, it is the physical features that stand out. These features include land elevations, mountain ranges, valleys, plains, and bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans.

Political maps emphasize political features. Political, in this sense, means specifically, boundaries and names of political units such as countries, states, and provinces, and the capitals of these units.

Even Rand McNally points out this simple fact that is so difficult for some of you guys to understand.

How is that relevant?

In other words, abstract concepts.

"We" ? *As if* YOU are a part of any "group here". You (just as most "crazy flakes" who show up here with your pet shit, want to re-define words to suit your pet crap. Go play on YouTube. The ONLY one who "looks silly" here is yourself, and your attemot to define the world according to "anti".

Go fuck yourself with a cactus.
