RE: The Protestant Reformation Explained Like Never Before
The best thing protestantism has accomplished was break the hold of the catholic church.
Weakening christianity as a whole, if the diminished strength of the catholic church was still whole
atheism would have been a much harder struggle.
So thank you protestants for paving the way to free thought, and diminishing the power of bronze age superstition and the tyranny of the catholic church.

Protestantism did a lot more than just that with many unintended side effects like atheism, materialism, humanism, secularism, liberalism, socialism, capitalism, sexual freedom, rights for gays ....: watch the docu

I guess Martin Luther would not pretty much like what his movement had lead to beyond his imagination if he would happen to take a look at this so-called modern time

Enjoy it

Actually, ou have to thank islamic Spain for fundamentally triggering both the protestant reformation & protestant John Locke's philosophical liberalism + empiricism

RE: The Secret Files of The Inquisition
As interesting as this site may be I'd rather you didn't start a new thread for each link. Not a big deal but if you could keep all the links within the same thread from now on that would be great.
Then if discussion heats up enough to warrant a new thread feel free to create one.

The failures are all human failures, not structural - failures of will.

The failures are all human failures, not structural - failures of will.

This is an ethical matter as well as a structural + easthetical one , i am afraid , risking to disappoint you , but facts are not a matter of pleasing or not pleasing people

I can even add that the split between morality , facts & easthetics is an ...illusion


I think thus that morality is a matter of facts as Sam Harris said in one video i posted here = some kindda morality is more true than other


Yeah , failures are not only human = failures of will ,but failures are also a matter of ignorance= lack of enough data for proper effective decision making , to mention just that fact

failures as well as success are also a matter of ego , a matter of active ambitions , passive ambitions or a lack of ambitions ......

Failures & success are also structural & innate in man: failures wrongdoings injustices manifest themselves through the human will thus

Do not forget that good & evil are part of the human innate nature manifested through the will or out of ignorance, or via suggestion, via ideologies ,via cultures , via brainwash, via indoctrinations ..... materialistic monism for example believes that neither good nor evil do exist as such , so, it all depends on moral ethical references .....


some materialists even deny the existence of the free will as such = just an illusion , just a survival strategy they say = bullshit


Happy new year , best wishes

Just so we understand you: You're saying you feel that all the things you mentioned in that list of yours are bad?

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

Would that really be a surprise from the Abdelz character? He's got -7 rep for a reason...
