Is atheism a religion? It depends on context and definitions. Most atheists bristle at the suggestion that atheism is a religious belief, and go to great lengths to distance themselves from the term.
δεισιδαιμονεστέρους is the Greek word for 'religious', as used by Paul in his Athenian speech:
Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: "People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. Acts 17:22
The root of this word is 'fear of the gods'.
I think it is important that we can be respectful toward each other and try to not overstep someone boundaries when it comes to privacy.
For those who take spiritual practice serious life is not about sex, body, alcohol, party, and so on. Life is about the inner journey, but sometimes it seems like people do not respect it in a public place.
So my question is. Should those who take spiritual path serious, be the one who must pull away from society because others want to be socalled free to...
Owners of Noah’s Ark replica sue insurers for ‘rain damage’
Good thing irony and schadenfreude aren't fattening.
This 15 minute video, Why Free Will Doesn’t Exist, was posted to me by an atheist I have been posting to on another forum. I do not agree with him that we do not have free will. Below is the gist of his argument. The first two paragraphs below are a summary of what is in the video and the last paragraph is this atheist’s personal opinion.
What makes free will an illusion is that the choice you make will always be either the choice to do what you most want to do (even when it overrides...
"I swear to Jesus this is true: Ark Encounter is suing its insurance providers for not covering — wait for it — rain damage.
Noah thought ahead. But not Ken Ham, apparently.
According to the 13-page lawsuit, Ark Encounter, which opened in 2016, suffered the effects of a heavy rain that began in May of 2017 and continued for several months.
That rain created a landslide which damaged a major access road to the Ark, rendering it “unsafe and unfit for use.” It cost about $1,000,000 for Ark...
Colossians says you were 'alienated' but through Jesus all things are reconciled, whether on earth or heaven, making peace through the blood of the cross.
Where does 'peace' come from and reconciliation in your view?
And how do you deal with alienation? Can you remain 'alienated' from God forever?
Most christians hope God exists. These christians don't react good when they encounter someone who doesn't believe in their God. They want all people to believe their idea of God.
But gnostic christians are the greatest. They know God exists and they never force their knowledge unto others. When they meet atheists, they don't feel threatened, and they don't try to convert them. At least that's what I understand.
Here is a list of fallacies for the Theory of Evolution (ToE) as it is commonly taught in schools.
False Equivalence. We can observe simple variability within an organism. Colored moths adapt to changing tree bark. Rabbits adapt to their surroundings. This is an observable, repeatable science, also known as 'micro evolution'. The fallacy is in making an equivalence between minor changes in physical traits, to extrapolating large changes in the genetic structure. But that is NOT observed, &...
