What I've written.


May I add here that I'm really curious to see how the lady will reply, with "the attention it deserves", to amcolph's post #357 ...

Amcolph, I'm in amsterdam at the moment on a bb and given the riotous bandwidth-sucking formatting [embarrass] on this thread I cannot give your post the attention it deserves at the moment but will soon...



I would be much obliged--obviously I am missing something.


I was, one might say, born a Nominalist and--as little as I thought about it--was not aware that other options existed untill I went off to college and came under the instruction of members of an RC religious order who 'taught the controversy' and took up various positions personally. They evidently did not regard the question as crucial to their faith.


That is where the matter rested until I came to Beliefnet where I find Realism being argued most vociferously, especially by Evangelical Protestants (those who know what it is) or at least assumed, conciously or unconciously, as a self-evident truth.


I suppose it would be amusing, although probably fruitless, to debate the relative merits of Realism v. Nominalism, but I am more interested in understanding why some might see Realism as an essential component of theology.

Well, she said she was in Amsterdam, and I don't know about Adelphe, but if I were in Amsterdam I would probably be incapable of using a computer.

LOL!!!  You sound like fun, amcolph, and I'd tip a pint with you anytime. Smile


But Amsterdam was soooooo...Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus, city tour, National Gallery, the Churchill War Rooms, the Strand, Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, Bath, and not a couple of pubs ago...


Today's itinerary, a detailed examination of the Tower of London, the torture museum, and Westminster Abbey.  Oh, and an "official" Afternoon Tea (can't wait for clotted cream--love it)!  (Oh, and a night-time "Jack the Ripper" tour--dont' ask me, wasn't my idea...)


Coming up, L'Italia!

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason, my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, for to go against conscience would be neither right nor safe.  Here I stand.  I can do no other.  God help me.  Amen.

Why?  You've got your own knitting to tend to here (I even made it purposely simple so you might possibly...be able to handle it.)  Certainly don't bother trying to ride on amcolph's coattails.  He understands metaphysics, ontology, and universals and you...don't.

The poor lady's  provocations have absolutely no effect. Let's see if she can get on with her knitting ...


... before she exposes herself entirely for the pathetic bluff she is ...

I'm not necessarily looking for the 'right' answer, whatever that may be.  Adelphe's mere opinion would be interesting of itself.


Or yours, for that matter:  why is Realism regarded in some circles as fundamental to Christianity?

Oh, I know the answer, but I don't want to give it here, otherwise I would spoil the ... er ... "spontaneity" of the poor lady's response to your post #357 ... Cool


... so I will send it to you as Private Message ... Smile
