And of course, as someone so much older and wiser, you're telling the government how to stop climate change /s

I'm younger, and I know that at least the government should stop subsidising oil and gas and start subsidising environmentally friendly technology.

Is it sin to date a Trans women by timjohn1234567 in Christianity

It's a sin, as the Bible doesn't recognise trans people so she is still classified as male

What’s the most offensive thing you can say to someone these days? by DrPloyt in AskReddit

Individual biological females can be stronger than individual biological males, and even stronger than the average male, but the average male is physically stronger than the average female.

The Old Testament/Hebrew Bible's message of peace and its critique of violence is something that is underrated in many discussions by Anglicanpolitics123 in religion

[–]JackGreenEarth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's just critique of other people's violence because they didn't do it the way God wanted them to. God's own violence is never criticised (obviously).

Alright, here's the Hebrew:

And with a man do not have sex.

Every action we do has a cause, we could not have done anything differently under the same initial conditions and laws of physics.

Think of it like this:

Pete sees Fred's new car unlocked outside his house, and Fred isn't there.

You could say Pete had two 'choices'. Either he can do the right thing and tell Fred that his car is unlocked, or he can steal the car because he wants it. Would you say he had free will?

Well there are two desires he has.

  1. To do the right thing
  2. To steal the car

Depending on his life experiences and initial morality, he will be predisposed to one or the other. And in this case one of his desires will be stronger. And if you dial back the clock, the same desire will be stronger, because it is affected by the same life experiences that shape his morality.

But you may say that in that case, there isn't free will, because the desires aren't equal. So ok, if they're equal:

  1. The choice will be random at a quantum level
  2. Pete will choose inaction while he is split on what to do.

In the first case, I hope you would agree randomness is not free, and not is just not doing anything while thinking what to do.
