The question is, People will have to judge for themselves, is Muhammad a true or false Prophet.
Muhammad say in Qu'ran 5:47--"So let the people of the Gospel rule according to what Allah revealed in it. Those who do not rule according to what Allah revealed are the sinners.
The Gospels that Muhammad, being in reference to is, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John these being the 4 Gospels of the New Testament, Bible.
It seems Muhammad, He, himself, don't even follow his own word, Muhammad tells...
Does math exist independent of our minds? Why or why not?
In the philosophy of mathematics, there are basically two positions on the subject of whether or not mathematics exists independent of our minds.
Naturally, these positions date back over 2,000 years to the ancient Greeks. The first position is called Platonism, after the famous Greek philosopher, Plato. Essentially, Platonism holds that mathematics exists apart from out minds.
On the other hand, the second position -- called...
Talk about s-t-u-p-i-d people.
"We wrote yesterday about a group of parents and pastors who were so offended about a Shakespeare-inspired play performed at their local high school that they decided to form a prayer circle.
Well, it turns out that the “inappropriate content” they were really protesting was a same-sex “stage kiss.”
The Parkway Playhouse came to Mitchell High School in Bakersville, North Carolina to perform an edited version of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare...
the message of Christianity and what is unique in Christianity is strong faith. Christian is the one who has strong faith. Jesus said that if you have strong faith you can move mountains. Miracles only happen with strong faith. Paganism doesn't have faith nor miracles. But if we rule out faith, that would be ugly, no?
If so, then is it organic or artificial?
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
New International Version (NIV)
Acts 17:28 From the Cretan philosopher Epimenides
Acts 17:28 From the Cilician Stoic philosopher Aratus
Bible Gateway passage: Acts 17:28 - New International Version
Do we live within an all knowing, ever present Mind?
If this is true, then the simulation must be organic in nature not...
In your religious faith, does your religious organization require obedience/vows/commitment to the organization as part of its marriage vows? - ie - you are not allowed to just make a commitment to a person, you have to commit to the religious organization? The organization forces itself between you and your spouse?
For those of you who put God first - it seems like you would not have as close of a relationship with your spouse...

There isnt many Buddhist on this forum; and, since I am not familar with Indian Cosmology, maybe Hindus can give me insight as well.
I was reading a heated discussion on SuttaCentral on whether The Buddha taught Nibanna as anihilation since we have nothing left to attach to or they argued what is the state of being one has in the next life when there is no attachments left?
The Buddha lived his Final life when he acheived nibanna. There is no soul nor spirit in Buddhism. There is nothing...
Human evolved with bigger skull that can be better deformed and allowing for the brain to get bigger,
compared to other primates.
Did the skull evolved first to get bigger and next the brain?
Did the brain evolved first to grow bigger then next the skull?
Did both evolved simultaneously؟
Do you think that both were designed to be fixed in place or it just happened
that both evolved simultaneously and it was perfect?
Dying as an atheist sounds kind of risky and potentially hazardous to one's health.
According to Muslims, dying as a Christian , Buddhist, Hindu, or a Jew is a hazardous to one's health. According to Christians, dying a Muslim, Jew, or a non-Christian is not a safe way to die..
Yet all of them are convinced with certainty that they have the truth. Who on Earth do I listen to? What is your idea of a way to die that ensures your safety and security?
The recent thread by @Sunstone regarding the decline of religiosity in the West, reminded me of the French atheist historian Marcel Gauchet and his controversial theory that Christianity is “the religion of the end of religion” as put forward in his book The Disenchantment of the World: A Political History of Religion (original French title: Le Désenchantement du monde. Une histoire politique de la religion, Gallimard, Paris, 1985).
The idea that Christianity has played, and will continue...
