I have completely uprooted the entire story of the Exodus out of real-world Egypt. The story didn't take place in that geography and i can linguistically prove it.
The one word that puts it in Egypt is מִצְרַיִם ' Mizraim ' , this word means 'between two streams'
in Greek that is 'μέσο ῥόον' / Meso Roon / that is synonymous with μέσο ποταμός / Meso Potamos /
but these words are not specific to a region.
Joshua 11:8 ' Misrephothmaim ' = μέσο ποταμός
My Absolute Best Logical Argument To Support My New, Objective Definition Of Good And Bad
Introductory Statement To My Logical Argument: Our positive emotions are an objective good and our negative emotions are an objective bad. When you experience the good value via a positive emotion, then it is like that positive emotion is literally a force of good. It would, in a way, be like the light of god. The light of god is sheer objective goodness itself. Likewise, experiencing the bad value...
I'm going with Shamanism, though Shamanism isn't a faith with any other Dogma but belief in spirits (God is spirit).
I think it is just the perfect path of peace, wisdom, and enlightenment. It is simple, can be practiced with basically any of the major faiths I can think of, and permits a lot of freedom.
Shamanism is simply seeking altered states of consciousness to interact with the world of benevolent and malevolent spirits.
It has been practiced since the history of Religion began....
Ragnarok is the prophecy of the end-times in Norse myth, where a new world rises from the ashes of a great war. The Mayan calendar ended in 2012 (when compared to the Georgian calendar) which people misinterpreted. Now apparently Biblical numerologists think the world will end two days from now.
Why do some care so much about when and how the world will end? How did the world not "end" already in the past? For all we know Ragnarok passed and we're living in it's ashes. And it's not like the...
A strange thing happened the other day which made me believe was a sign from God. I was hanging around the house most of the day working on some projects. Occasionally I'd look out the window across the street to the school grounds playing fields to see what was going on. I noticed a young girl sitting on the ground at the foot of the bleachers. She had been there most of the day. I thought, how can anyone sit there all day like that, she must be homeless and has no place to go. After...
In my experience, I feel I've met a good many atheists who don't seem to believe theism can be come to rationally. For example, when I've previously pointed out I'm a former atheist, I've been told I probably wasn't a real atheist at all because I changed my position. I've been told I'm just my birth religion (I'm not), or that it's just my culture, or that I need a crutch to lean on to. But rarely does it seem recognized by non-theists that some of us were in the same spot as them, just as...
Someone needs to liberate these dark-aged countries. I hope the women in Afghanistan appreciate that they no longer have to dress like that. Could you imagine being a woman in a country where there are laws forcing you to dress like Darth Vader or get raped? It's a good thing America brought some sanity to Afghanistan.
I think it's also good that France banned the burqa. It's sick to treat women like that. There are women in my city that dress like that. It's also creepy when you can't...
