    Rubbish. There are gobs of religious people who don't seek to gain any authority at all -- in fact there are entire branches of religions which deliberately seek to have no authority at all.

    The driver of seeking authority is a mindset about the world, not religion. It can be found in religious, political, and any human realm.

I almost got involved in all that once, but decided not to and settled for correcting some grammar and phrasing. The problem is that it's such an emotionally charged subject that any balanced article is going to get flak from all sorts of directions.

    I do still question the veracity of some parts of the article.
    There's a little overkill with the repetition of the notion that almost no scholars doubt the historicity of Jesus, but that is really stylistic, which is the article's main problem -- I think it's wordy and sloppy. If you look at the history page, there' been more than one 'battle' over content, one of which resulted in one of the contributors being censored.


    But... we need a cartoon:

    Kulindahr, I hate to go off topic but I'd like to hear your take on how many "actual christians" there are. Wikipedia says there are around 2 billion who call themselves that, but I think you would have to say far fewer.

    On topix:

    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Right, but, as usual, he just skimmed the surface of matters: for example, today those who rule over you do not even bother to directly rule, and whenever they actually care about you at all, they use some sort of straw symbol as that entity that Voltaire refers to as untouchable, so that they always divert people's attention and outrage from themselves.

    Then all of science has "clearly lost it", because they categorize things based on definitions all the time.

    See, you're misapplying the No True Scotsman concept in a way that makes all knowledge invalid.

    On topix:

    I'm going to start with a rather scholarly distinction, between broad and narrow meanings: the broad meaning includes all that has a claim to some category, the narrow only those which fit a precise set of requirements. As an example, take the concept of "driver": in the broad definition, everyone who can get into a vehicle and manage to steer it along a course is a driver; in a narrow definition only those capable of handling most adverse conditions and dealing with on-road emergencies qualify. As another, "chess player": in the broad sense, anyone who knows how to move the pieces is a player; in the narrow sense only someone with a grasp of basic concepts of strategy makes the cut.

    In the broad sense, anyone who claims to be a Christian is, because the term indicates followers of Christ, and anyone who says he's following has to be counted (this is the definition used by census-takers and pollsters). OTOH, in the narrow sense only those whose lives show significant characteristics of Christ to their neighbors (in the broad sense) count.

    So, taking the narrow sense, that being what I mean in such comments as I made, I'd venture optimistically that five percent of those fitting the broad definition can be included in the narrow.

    In a pastoral perspective, though, the narrow definition has to be adjusted to include all those making forward strides in showing those significant characteristics of Christ. These may appear to outsiders to be total losses, but consider someone who has been a thief, drug dealer, pimp, and murderer (with a lot more violence on the spectrum) who turns to Christ: if he changes so he's only stealing occasionally and has a GF who's also a prostitute, he's made some big strides. To all of us who don't know him, he won't appear as much of a Christian, definitely not in the narrow definition, but to those who know he's a testimony of how a life can change and keep changing. Including those, I'll expand my count to ten percent.

    To some that may seem awfully pessimistic, but given the numbers who participate in hateful activities when the clear words of Christ condemn them, I don't think so. Some may be misled, but the words are there for them in the book, and there are ministers who expound those words clearly.

    Of course many realize what they've really been doing when it gets close to the end, so it may be twenty or thirty percent or even more who die actual Christians -- but there's no way to gain data on that in the least, so it's outside the scope of even guessing.



    Oh -- superb video; tragically quite true: many Christians run when faced with the real thing.

    See, you're misapplying the No True Scotsman concept in a way that makes all knowledge invalid.
    Oh and religion and self-proclaimed religious people are better by using categories they do not even care to define, so that they can "weasily" with wielding names with a vague sense, if any, of what they actually mean, and telling others do as they say but not as they do.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kulindahr View Post
    I'm going to start with a rather scholarly distinction, between broad and narrow meanings: the broad meaning includes all that has a claim to some category, the narrow only those which fit a precise set of requirements. As an example, take the concept of "driver": in the broad definition, everyone who can get into a vehicle and manage to steer it along a course is a driver; in a narrow definition only those capable of handling most adverse conditions and dealing with on-road emergencies qualify. As another, "chess player": in the broad sense, anyone who knows how to move the pieces is a player; in the narrow sense only someone with a grasp of basic concepts of strategy makes the cut.

    In the broad sense, anyone who claims to be a Christian is, because the term indicates followers of Christ, and anyone who says he's following has to be counted (this is the definition used by census-takers and pollsters). OTOH, in the narrow sense only those whose lives show significant characteristics of Christ to their neighbors (in the broad sense) count.

    So, taking the narrow sense, that being what I mean in such comments as I made, I'd venture optimistically that five percent of those fitting the broad definition can be included in the narrow.

    In a pastoral perspective, though, the narrow definition has to be adjusted to include all those making forward strides in showing those significant characteristics of Christ. These may appear to outsiders to be total losses, but consider someone who has been a thief, drug dealer, pimp, and murderer (with a lot more violence on the spectrum) who turns to Christ: if he changes so he's only stealing occasionally and has a GF who's also a prostitute, he's made some big strides. To all of us who don't know him, he won't appear as much of a Christian, definitely not in the narrow definition, but to those who know he's a testimony of how a life can change and keep changing. Including those, I'll expand my count to ten percent.

    To some that may seem awfully pessimistic, but given the numbers who participate in hateful activities when the clear words of Christ condemn them, I don't think so. Some may be misled, but the words are there for them in the book, and there are ministers who expound those words clearly.

    Of course many realize what they've really been doing when it gets close to the end, so it may be twenty or thirty percent or even more who die actual Christians -- but there's no way to gain data on that in the least, so it's outside the scope of even guessing.



    Oh -- superb video; tragically quite true: many Christians run when faced with the real thing.
    Kul, the fallacy is not about broad and narrow meanings, it is about the assumed use of any of those to avoid the actual points in the discussion. It is not about whether you use this or that sense, it is about your throwing any of those handy ready-made expressions to weasel away from the discussion, and typing a lengthy spiel does not make you appear any more reasonable if you are diverting the discussion from the reasonable course: you are just writing for people who would get lost in the lines and get only the sense that you have developed something reasonable and clever.



    Yes, I know you are more articulate and make more sense than her, but your trick is that you pretend that what you wrote is relevant and has anything to do with your previous "true Scotsman" one-liner.


    Even if it had not been your intention, your "true Christian" appeal was a perfectly fine example of the "true Scotsman" fallacy. Now you can go to the "correction of names" doctrine for the concept behind that lengthy post, if you want.

    And least, in that case you took more pains that just dismiss someone by seeing your own reflection in his supposed "fantasies".
