comment Does transhumanism conflict with the Christian concept of a soul?
I suppose I was not aware that the different Christian denominations had differing soul concepts.

comment Does transhumanism conflict with the Christian concept of a soul?
I don't consider myself a transhumanist. I'm just familiar with the concepts much in the same way as I'm here on a Christian forum as an atheist. However I do know that cybernetic implants will become more commonplace in decades to come. I think we all know.

comment Can one be atheist even if you still pin your hope on Jesus?
"He's proceeding from the false assumption that he is not starting with unprovable assumptions" We don't actually know if he has unprovable assumptions. He may be an agnostic atheist. So that is unclear. So be it.

You seem very misinformed on the matter of atheism @mojo. I'm sorry.

"What would be the practical use of this word if you always had to qualify it by listing the gods you do/don't believe in?" Sometimes it is a actually VERY impractical term and atheist Sam Harris makes an interesting argument about that - samharris.org/site/full_text/the-problem-with-atheism

"a supreme being or beings." 'A being' refers to the singular being. You could rephrase that as a "particular" being. The definition you cite confirms my definition. An atheist can disbelieve in 'a being' or multiple 'beings'.

comment Does the New Testament have any mention of Kolob and if not, how come?
"What would it mean for the heavens to be God's throne and the earth his footstool non-metaphorically?" Well, I think I've shown you my hand, so to speak. I consider all of it metaphor to put it extremely politely. However for the sake of this question, my intention to understand HOW theists decide where they're convinced of something as opposed to be being unconvinced.

Sorry for typos. I just find this idea of picking which parts are metaphorical extremely confusing. When I, as an atheist, say Genesis is metaphorical, I'm told it's not. I don't understand the difference.

So you're assertion that the throne of god is metaphorical is just opinion?

How do other Christians go about perceiving the "thrown of God" as metaphorical? Is it up to each individual to decide what's metaphorical and what isn't?

comment Since Mormonism allows for humans to become gods in the afterlife, does this mean it is polytheistic?
However there are clearly Mormons who take it literally. Your concern then begs, how do you know what is literal and what isn't? As atheist, I take the position that most theists can't tell the difference.
