(1) P(E|K & ~D) ≈ 0
(2) P(E|K & D) >> 0
(3) P(D|K) >> P(E|K & ~D)
∴ P(D|E & K) >> 0
Willing to ironman the argument, come at me, which premise do you deny?
K = Many of the initial conditions and free parameters of a universe need to be finely tuned in order for the development of life in that universe to be possible.
E = The universe is indeed fine-tuned for life.
D = A supernatural designer of immense power and knowledge exists.
(1) The probability of E, given K and assuming the denial of D, is extremely low; that is, fine-tuning is exceptionally improbable if there is no designer – if the universe is the way it is just by chance.
(2) The probability of E, given K and assuming D, is quite high; that is, fine-tuning is quite probable if a supernatural designer exists.
(3) The intrinsic probability of D – the probability of D just considered in light of K and not in light of E – is greater than the probability of E, given K and assuming the denial of D;
that is, it is more probable that a supernatural designer exists than that, just by chance, the universe is fine-tuned.
The conclusion derived is that the probability of D, given E and K, is quite high; that is, the existence of a supernatural designer is quite high given that the universe is fine-tuned.

Thread in response to those who question how can God send a human to Hell
1. The main justification for hell is retributive. According to the retributive justice theory people have to be punished because they have broken the law The judgment of God is necessary for the existence of a real moral order in the universe.
It provides the ultimate sanction that underlies all moral demands, without which law breakers would go unpunished.

Unlike utilitarian justice, which seeks to justify punishment by its alleged future desirable consequences,

@BXCrazed @LeppIdd @KBAthewarrior @zarakayk @KaeKaeNikk The closest meaning would be ❛term appointed.❜ ❛Term appointed❜ may either mean the place where the sun will ultimately come to a halt, or the time when it will come to a halt, i.e., it will extinguish.
@BXCrazed @LeppIdd @KBAthewarrior @zarakayk @KaeKaeNikk Scientists have confirmed that at sometime in the future, the sun beams will be encircled within its halo-photo-sphere, chromosphere and corona, consequently losing its brilliance, and thus coming to an end.
@BXCrazed @LeppIdd @KBAthewarrior @zarakayk @KaeKaeNikk The true meaning of this verse can be determined only when one attains the full and exact knowledge of the realities of the universe.

Thread refuting every single abortion argument:
1."It's Private decision"
Is abortion really a private matter? No, it is not, because in order to consider it a private matter you not only need to completely ignore the nature of the procedure but also the outside interests that are effected by the abortion.
If we agree that a private matter, would be if individual interests in which government & uninvolved third parties can claim no valid/permissible interests, it follows that before the abortion decision maybe characterised as a private matter or not between a woman & her physician

“Test the orphans until they reach the age of marriage ; if you then find sound judgement in them, release their property to them… When you release their property to them, take witnesses in their presence.” (Qur'an, 4:6)
The verse shows that the Qur'an equates marriageable age with psychological maturity (not just physical maturity) and that this is evidenced solely by the young person reaching an age at which she/he is able to independently & responsibly take care of their own wealth & property.

Thread on Why believing in Human Evolution is Disbelief (Kufr) and Reasons why Darwin’s theory of Evolution is erroneous.
There is no scholar who has ever said it is permissible to believe that our father Adam had parents or that it is possible for humans not to have descended from Adam, or that Adam’s offspring were another species all together which would entail a biological impossibility.
1. Adam had parents, [Al-Araf:11]
This verse clearly provides a sequence of events which details that Adam must have been the first creation of Mankind as he was specified in the verse as the first creation in relation to the previous events before the Angles prostrating. Image
