I have a hunch that there is a higher power(s), what we humans call god(s). Relying on my intuition here.
Life is too trippy for there not to be a god I think. Everything works perfectly, the universe is ordered. The potential of our brains and the thoughts it can produce is too amazing (for me) to not be intelligently designed or divine in nature.
Do you follow your gut when it comes to belief in god? What does it tell you?
Since only biological females can become pregnant I offered an amendment to limit our federal pregnancy programs to biological females. All 50 Senate democrats voted against it. 2022 AD, Senator Rubio Press.
Atheist, is world becoming a bad place? And if yes, is it a good thing?
upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity. Luke 21:25
Proof is The Key
Through life it is important to see things from other points of view in order to contemplate where one stands. This is a lesson that my father taught me at a young age by teaching me the wisdom of thinking about “living life as if in the other’s shoes”, and though it is easy to appreciate what is being said, it is a difficult lesson to learn practically speaking.
Truth is conversional.
In other words, realisation of the truth means that if one is of those who are...
By Gospel I simply mean "good news", I am not specifically referring to the gospels in the Bible.
It seems to me that most people have some sort of spiritual gospel in some way. Yes, the Christians popularized it with the advent of Jesus, but every religion (and some irreligions) provoke some sort of good news to their adherents.
My gospel, and probably the gospel of most syntheists, is that God is being created right now from our attempt to anthropomorphize nature. The future is vague...
Truth is subjective say some. Mostly atheists in this forum I hear this from. Not "most atheists" but "mostly atheists". It's not true. It's nuanced.
In studies of sociology or sociology of religion, one outcome taught as fact is that religious truths are subjective. For example, an Ethiopian Jesus is black. An American Jesus is white. Sometimes even God is white for an American, and vice versa. This is subjective truth. But that does not mean there are no objective truths. An American...
Kepler's heliocentric model is so much better at making accurate predictions. And his insights so much deeper. So I had always assumed Kepler came after Galileo.
I was recently surprised to learn that Kepler was a contemporary of Galileo.
Johannes Kepler 1571 to 1630
Galileo Galilei 1564 to 1642
Given Kepler's 3rd law and Huygens' expression for centrifugal acceleration, it's trivial to demonstrate inverse square gravity for circular orbits:
However does inverse square gravity imply the...
In the above video Stephen Lett (Governing Body member of the Jehovah's Witnesses) claims babies are, "enemies of God".
He immediately clarifies that he loves babies, but it is worth a good laugh seeing the theological clumsiness of one of 8 leaders of approx. 8.7 million people.
Which brings us to the question, are babies enemies of God in your faith tradition?
In my opinion
I am told by many persons that if their god were to stop someone from acting on their desire to hurt another, that said god would be interfering with the free will of the perpetrator. Protecting the free will of the victim is never presented as a priority. Even in cases of sexual assault.
I am curious. If one person were to restrain another, at what point would they no longer have free will? Please note the poll above.
Libertarian free will means that our choices are free from the...
