    Simple epistemological question: How do you know that a claim is natural or supernatural?



    You asked a question based on the premise that certain people are stupid. Is that correct or are you going to lie about this one too?
    Thanks for the chat.

    Reverse onus is not allowed in any court of law, yet here you are doing what is unjust in law.

    You are not only doing the hypocritical, your are doing the dishonest and unlawful.

    Which brings me to my original point -- you can't say that if you're stupid yourself.

    Duh?

    Einstein believed in a creator and an underlying intelligent design in natural law. By definition, he believes in the supernatural --- and yet, I cannot imagine any context wherein gcb could honestly call einstein borderline stupid.

    Einstein was a human before genius. Just because he could rationalize complex scientific theory does not mean he was flawless.

    Gottfried liebniz, philosopher and mathematician who developed differential and integral calculus, believed in god. It is in his philosophical/metaphysical contemplations that he developed his famous ontological proof -- the principle of sufficient reason. And yet, I find it abhorrent to common sense that gcb would 'compassionately' refer to him as borderline stupid.

    I didn't say he was flawless or infallible. After all, the man himself admitted to his monumental blunder (which turned out to be his most intuitive genius) -- the cosmological constant.

    I'm sure some people out there could (possibly) be more brilliant than him but do you honestly think gcb is one of them -- enough to call one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century, borderline stupid?????

    Sir isaac newton, anglican by birth, physicist, mathematician and theologian (although his religious beliefs were considered 'unorthodox' at best and heretical at worst), believed in a 'masterful creator'. For gcb to 'compassionately' call sir isaac newton borderline stupid is supreme and ineffable cheek.

    Maxwell, kepler, copernicus, planck, pasteur, faraday, descartes, boyle, heisenberg....

    The list goes on and on.

    And yet, a member of this forum, armed with a monumental delusion of grandeur, saw fit to call these people borderline stupid (albeit compassionately). This member, who can fashion an argument only by the use of youtube videos, brazenly calls these scholars (who happen to have some faith in a creator in one form or another), borderline stupid. This sort of bald-faced arrogance was posted as if this forum is populated by goat and swineherds who couldn't possibly know any better.

    Duh?
