RE: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
Matt: "Why did God leave the most important thing, the instructions for salvation, prone to error?"
Sye: "For reasons that are perfectly suitable for God"

Ugh. How are you not horribly depressed by this? Knowing that you're just a puppet of an omnipotent being who would happily torture you for all eternity? Nothing about this guy makes ANY sense to me.

Truth seeker.

Congratulations! You have now demonstrated critical thinking skills superior to Sye Ten Bruggencate who is well over twice your age, presumably has some commercial interest in the argument he is peddling and has motivation to hone his argument yet hasn't managed it.

Are you asking us, or are you hypothetically asking Sye?

Because, if you're asking me, then the answer is that I don't know that I'm "just a puppet". In fact, I not only don't know that, but I'm logically, philosophically, historically, mythologically, and scientifically very certain that I am not "just a puppet" of any being at all.

Except my boss - but he's no omnipotent creator, so there's that.

And since I know I'm not "just a puppet", then I'm not depressed about NOT being a puppet. No fear, no dread, no depression, because I am NOT "just a puppet".

Finished watching now.

Conclusion:
Matt has a very pink head.

I didn't learn anything else.

Sad

RE: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
Sye says the Quran claims the Bible is true, which proves the Quran is false and the Bible is true. Huh
How can something be made true by something that is false?
The circular boggles the mind. Hobo

I too loved the,

Sye: "See? He's trying to hang up on me!"

Mat: "Which you said I couldn't do. I pwn your ass."

Sorry if that's not the exact quote.... am laughing too hard. Big Grin Laughat Weeping Laugh out load

RE: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
I haven't watched this debate yet. I plan to tonight Madrid time. Sye's usual epistemological stance is solipsism plus an argument from consequences:
1 you cannot disprove solipsism
2 I would be sad if solipsism were proven
3 therefore I must be able to rely on the revealed truth I receive through my holy books and telepathic communication with someone who claims to know what is really going on

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
