Ofcourse I sent you wrong article. Sorry. As he says he thinks it is a positive claim. I had another article which I wanted to send you. There was a missing copy-paste of weblinks. Below one was actual weblink-
I don't think you have a proof of his existence. Therefore, there is no reason to debate on this topic anymore.
You seem to believe everything as long as you find an article that fullfills your criteria for reliable. However that article is simply wrong. Your other article was right.
I hope you do know that many authors of articles are wrong, even the reliable ones? I hope you do know that many scientists and historians are wrong? I hope you do know that believing an article or a scientific paper because it conforms with your opinion cannot be called rational, right?
Applying the "burden of proof" to history just simply does not work. You can only apply the "burden of evidence" to history and then weigh up the propabilities. Thus our new debate positions are actually better.
So to say it clearly, this is my last post in this debate. You do not need to answer what I wrote here. If you want to debate, come to the new one, and we'll look at all the arguments I just touched.
If you do not want to debate but instead be right, then do not debate and most importantly do not learn from those who are of other oppinion than you, no matter how rational their reasons .
So to stop beating around the bush and I guess what everyone is trying to avoid saying here so here you go... Atheists believe that aliens created us and that the gods B. C. We're aliens. Why does no one really talk about this? I was raised an atheist and I am a 43 year old woman and this subject still seems very much about one god... Not anything really about atheism...
You are very brave to deal with electrics by yourself! Personally, I am really far from it and when I neede to cut a cable I googled how to use a wire stripper. You know, it may seem hilarious but I find it very dangerous and I am sure that's being too careful when it comes to doing such work isn't a bad thing.
Once in a while, a child would be born with a brain disorder not allowing them to comprehend empathy or feelings, which is basically what evil is. But not all evil people are born evil. If these people who are born evil grow up to become parents with perfectly normal kids, then their child will grow up only knowing bad or evil behaviors, therefore making them evil. So basically, evil is sometimes learned and sometimes inherited, but the instances where evil is learned are derived from the instances where evil is inherited. I don't know if this is the answer you're looking for, but it's what I think.

Sorry for taking my time to answer, I'm a busy man, just like you. So please forgive...
But I say some or a/the few (but not 0) wars are actually caused by the religions or doctrines. I stand for this thesis. Also, I say religious or doctrinal elements are enough for a whole war in my examples.
Taiping rebellion- Hong got divinity of Jesus and according to him, he was a brother of jesus .He was inspired by 10 commandments of Jesus and somewhat communism too. He went to thistle mountain to conspire against religious traditions of that place. On that moment, he wanted to arrest a lot of leaders of that religious group and wanted to join God worshiping society. He did not only accepted thistle mountain charcoal burner who claimed to channel God but also a farmer who claimed to channel Jesus. Also, he claimed that worshipers will go to heaven during prayers. Then he divided his society into four parts and liked to fight against demons. In 1850, he declared that he will be fought for the heaven and Jesus had urged him to do so. Demons were supposed as Qing dynasty. In 1851, unexpectedly he won but he continued this battle. When he won Yongan, he strictly told his soldiers to follow almost all commandments. Then he occupied Nanjing and he declared to cease warfare. He had Nanjing for 11 years and he left secular matters of governance thereafter. Europeans helped Qing dynasty to seize back and it was not expected by Hong. In 1864, Hong was found to be dead and during Nanzing seizing 30 to 70 million Taipingings were killed. It was an all out war because both sides destroyed farmland, butchered cities & villages, and killed animals. This war was not against only soldiers but also showed merciless to civilians. The Qing killed all the prisoners who were rebelling against him in Guangxi. Both sides exterminated whole population when they occupied a new specific territory.
I think the taping rebellion is a great example for a war that happened because of social injustice. The population that followed Hong Xiuquan were the Hakka. They did follow him, because the Qing dynasty did not allow for any social advancement for the Hakka. They were at the bottom, and society kept them at the bottom.
“I think the taping rebellion is a great example for a war that happened because of social injustice” which was caused by a political ideology ‘Confucianism’. The code of Confucianism stated three social categories in which scholars were put at top, peasant farmers were put in the middle, artisans and merchants were at the end. All Hakkas were belonged to second and third categories.
But I concede, that religious elements played a big role in keeping his followers in line.
True and the real war initialized when Hong protested against ‘Confucianism's beliefs’ on thistle mountain.
According to the general definition of a war is- an armed fighting between two or more countries or groups:https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/war. If police of USA fights against those religious extremist groups, it will be said a limited war. Or if USA fights against a terrorist country such as Iraq after getting permission of Christians, it will be said a limited war too.
I agree with your definition.
But I agree with you that war against terrorism or war between two or more terrorist groups are limited than an all out war is. You have no mercy for your opponent and you do not follow any type of battles’ rules in an all out war. However, you did not choose this thesis ‘no all out war is caused by any doctrine’. Now I think it is your thesis, correct me if I am wrong.
Yes, this is what I meant indeed!
I would talk about an all out war i.e. Vietnam war. The two dangerous ideologies, communism and capitalism fought in the Vietnam war. The main reason between this war was communism threatened to expand to almost all south-east Asia. The Capitalist country USA had a phobia for communism. North Vietnam was leaded by USSR, China and N.Korea. On the other hand, South Vietnam was leaded by USA, S.Korea, Cambodia and by some other nations. 13 to 42 LC people were killed. This war became an all out war when USA released nuclear radar bombs through F-105 and B-52.
The Vietnam war is a Proxy war fought between the US and the USSR.
Vietnam war was not a proxy war. Here is a list of proxy wars- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_proxy_wars. Here is the list of total wars (it is all about recent wars) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_war
So yes, certainly 2 groups fought each other. In thase case I wouldn't even say that the US is united by its ideology as much as the USSR. I don't think capitalism is an ideology or doctrine, and I don't think capitalism unites people.
I can cite a Wikipedia article for ‘capitalism is an ideology and doctrine’. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Ideologies_of_capitalism.
But communism certainly is. It is a fight for dominion, it is a fight for power...
Doctrine of communism contains conflict for dominion and power between two social major classes. According to communism, social resolution resolution is compulsory for ending this conflict. And communism was an ideology made against capitalism. Capitalism states every person is the owner of his life and each has a right to live according to his own way until it does not violate the right of others. If he violates the right of others thru power, the state can interfere. Since rights can only be violated by initiating force, the government would only use force in retaliation of those who initiated it. Therefore, capitalism definitely unites people too.
Thdcasank you so much for this. I was into this issue and tired to tinker around to check if its possible but couldnt get it done. Now that i have https://notepad.software/ seen the way you did it, thanks guys

I would not have thought my soul weigh anything either although sometimes it feels quite heavy and other times it's light as a feather.
That's good! I couldn't agree more.
please fact check that for me and let me know what you find it's been at least 10 years since I heard that are read that but please let me know what you come up with
ahhh. if I just had the time

I do not think why this debate should be relentlessly pursuing anymore.
No, not this discussion, for I think there is a rather numerous set of topics, many many topics, in this discussion worth debating. How about we start with a rather inoccuous one... I'll make a new topic. You're invited if you want.
@G-A Although astrological signs (both the chinese and the equally old Babilonic/Persian signs) are indeed a type of archetypical defining of one's personality, Astrology is, as far as my understanding of it goes, a method of determination through suggestibility of archetypical features. It was extremely useful in the past, as a mean to equally distribute desirable traits in a early developing societal structure. This video shows a more "up to date", so to speak, understanding of the complexity and variety of human psyche and it's flexibility. So, if we were to speak about astrological archetypes, consider the idea of "Psychological Rebirth" as a complete reset of one's sign. I guess we could say that if you were supposed to be a aquarian, but somehow being an aquarian proved to be detrimental to your life, you could go through a change in personality so drastic that you wouldn't be considered an aquarian anymore if you went through the rebirth. Sorry if this whole astrological talk seems rather simplistic, I only know some aspects of it.
For me it was always easier to just hire british essay writers. Not the cheapest solution but definitely the easiest one and if you are bad at writing, I think that hiring a pro is the best thing you can do.
As promised, I looked up a set of ways to show the earth is round. Luckily for me I could be completely lazy, cause the author of this article did the whole work for me
