    Black or white

    How about a break from this religious stuff. let''s deal in some symantics. Is everything black or white or are there areas of grey? I suggest that if you see something as grey you simply haven't given it enough thought. If you decide it is black or white, you have some proving to do.

    Ah. All is grey for me tony. You see, unlike you and your fellow god fearing folks, I do not have any answers. It must be thrilling to know all.

    Doesn't anybody here play chess? You see, the peices are black or white. The squares are black or white. There are no illusions. You can find yourself in the middle of a game with very few peices compared to your opponent and it doesn't matter what you believe. Because the peices are black or white and the squares are black or white.

    Are you getting my drift? Faith is not what defines reality. Believing does not make it so. You must think hard to find the best move. Everything really is black or white. It is just unlikely that we will ever figure it all out.

    There are many real-life boolean examples, such as answers to questions.
    Example:
    "Have you ever purchased a CD?"

    I don't know about there being real boolean examples in real life outside of theoretical quantum physics.

    In your example, it is very easy to say when it is defiately true. If you walked in and paid cash for a CD and walked out, then thats true. What if you have never bought a CD and you went in and put it on a credit card, but the card was declined? You havn't payed for the CD, but you have it in your posession.

    Same idea with theft.

    Then there are blank CD's. (You could lump all CD's, written or not in one category to eliminate this grey area)

    What if it were gifted to you? Someone payed for it in your name and you own it, but you didn't purchase it per se.

    Or if you used a gift card, did you purchase it or someone else?

    All of these examples can be made to look as black or white depending on where you personally decide to place a dividing line.

    The same is with everything, including (to bring up another recent post) abortion. When is it murder? When they are a teen? An infant? A fetus? 100 cells? 1 cell? A sperm and an egg? A hamburger shared by two lovers? Everyone is going to put a line somewhere. One side is murder and the other side is okay to kill. Everyone places the line in a different area.

    Re: Black or white

    When is something hot or cold, in other words where does hot on a thermometer begin and where does cold end?
    When you say something is cold I can show you something colder. When you say it is hot, I am sure it could get hotter.
    Show me the definitive black and white of a thermometer.

    Show me when night ends and day begins where is the dividing line?

    Only man attempts to put things in boxes and even then they don't fit cleanly.
    There is no black or white issue.

    I have my doubts that what man considers to be absolute is actually absolute.

    Ok once you answered the 2+2 question ...

    If you jump off a building from say the 20th floor - what will
    happen?

    There are absolutes..... is 2+2 is always 4, you will fall to ground if you jump from a building...

    I believe God has created absolutes -- the devil deals with the
    shades of gray....
