Iowa Public School is Taking Kids to a Christian Play at a Christian College
"A group of first graders from the Cherokee Community School District in Iowa are taking a field trip later this week to see the play “Jonah and the Giant Fish” (about the biblical myth) at Northwestern College (a private Christian college) during the school day.
Somehow, none of those glaring red flags inspired the adults at Roosevelt Elementary School to say this was a bad idea.
Now the American Humanist...
What do you intend to do (or have others do) with your body when it has expired?
Why? Tradition? To do what's best for the earth? Because you are looking out for number one?
BONUS QUESTION: If Salix's body expired, what would you do to preserve his trend-setting fashion? Could @Sunstone carry the proverbial torch?
I probably should not post this today because I won’t have much time to answer posts after today, till the weekend, unless the posts are short. But I had a heartfelt feeling and I just had to share it.
These ideas for threads often come to me after a day in the trenches reading what people post and then it reaches critical mass when I see Christians arguing about *what the Bible means.* One Christian believes it means x, another one believes it means y, and another one believes it means z....
Today I've been daydreaming about a debate between Jesus and Nietzsche. If I could watch any two people in history debate, it would be Jesus Christ and Friederich Nietzsche. Both were extremely arrogant and witty and had polar opposite viewpoints on nearly everything. Can you imagine a debate between these two guys? Their tempers would probably flare constantly. For example (to quote each of them): Nietzsche would say "—Must I add that, in the whole New Testament, there appears but a...
Are there really such things as truths that can only be demonstrated to be truths by uniquely religious means?
If so, what are those means? On what grounds do they have epistemic validity?
My opinion (if anyone happens to be interested)...
Seems to me when people speak of "uniquely religious truths", they are most often clueless as to how those truths can be established apart from what in the end boils down to some method that is indistinguishable from mere...
I noticed how fellow members discussed Time on one of the threads about if life is found on Mars, will we be able to handle it?.
What I found is that various claims are made about the attributes of "Time", and there is a lot of misunderstandings as well as solid facts explained by all.
I thought it will be a nice thread to create to have everyone scrutinizing, not only their opinions, but also mine.
Well, my understanding comes from the Biblical view, because I have learned quite a while...
If a time machine transported the long dead Jesus forward in time to the 21st century, I wonder how he would react to what is being said and done in his name? Some Christian extremists drag through the sewer Jesus and the faith, which was created well after he died, with him as the figurehead.
I have no time for those who use the Bible as an excuse to bolster their unpleasant behaviour like a hatred of homosexuals. As I have said many times, it is possible Jesus could have been gay as the...
This question derives from, if Yeshua got rid of the Temple, then how is Yeshua not the false prophet?
This is strange.
However, since it's really Herodian, leadership, then this is even stranger, ie it isn't the original Temple, anyway.
Any clarity, here.
[As a note, any theory can be presented, scriptural or otherwise
Most sciences (any field of systematic study in fact) use a set of technical terminology that are defined in ways quite distinct from everyday English. Evolutionary sciences do the same. The most difficult part of this is the terminologies associated with phylogenetics, which uses the features in the biological features of living and extinct life-forms to infer and reconstruct possible evolutionary relationships between animals, plants etc.
This thread is an attempt to shed some light on...
