    Not actually sure how this informs the thread subject.

    Ref: posts 18-19, saying that if someone is talking about reality then the history of the philosophy of reality is important, because reality is a subjective notion (somewhat) impacted by that history. Sama said reality wins, but Sama's idea of reality may be completely different from someone else's. Sama also said, God is only as good as the beings that create Him. Typically, when God is capitalized there is the idea that God is an eternal spirit, but I'm not sure Sama is offering a context for that post.

    Not allowed to walk away from a post for an hour (this one would not let me delete it). Pretty inconvenient admins. Please give us control of our content.

    Can you point me at a discussion forum that allows you to do this?

    Yes. Christians say humans cannot have good morals without a source but they require no source for god's morals. They say humans should try to be like god yet most of what scripture claims god does/did would be seen as immoral if humans do.

    So, you can go back to a post a month old, and edit it?

    What happens if someone responds to your post and then you change it?

    What if, on Monday, you post "I like babies", and then on Tuesday someone says "Me Too!"
    And then on Wednesday, you return and edit your post to say "I like to eat kittens!" Now, the poor hapless respondent likes to eat kittens.

    Can you go back and change your prediction of the 2106 election to say "50 bucks says Trump wins!"

    Actually you can do that on many forums. You rarely can delete a post and certainly not a thread but there are many forums where you can always edit a post. I understand forums that don't allow that and I understand forums that do allow that.

    I, obviously, don't go back and change the argument after someone has responded. I do frequently go back to correct typos anytime that is allowed. Sometimes I don't notice it the first time and it's only later that I catch it.

    I'm not arguing which way is best, but it does commonly exist on many forums.

    Quora - which might not exactly qualify as it is more giving answers to questions asked
    But you can go back anytime to edit/revise anything you post

    Editing all the posts in a thread would make it unreadable, I think. Editing a post to prevent oneself from looking like an utter loon? Where's the entertainment value in that?

    "In the beginning there was the word..." I believe "The Word" is the duality of morality (Good and evil.) Goodness is natural and remains, however evil is neccessary because only evil can be regretted and "undone." This is called a conscience.
