One fact to Refute evolution.
For those who believe in the theory of evolution.
Why did evolution have to be tested, to know whether it's true or not.
To test something, that means it's not true, until it's tested to show it's true.
This why Christians don't have to test the bible all because Christians already know the Bible is true
Where as evolution had to be tested, to find if it's true or not true.
That's like going to take a test, you take a test to show if your qualified or not....
I wrote a recent post on my optimistic personal philosophy which replaces the need for a religion. I encountered resistance from a few pessimistic posters who used the word "Utopian" which implies unrealistic optimism. I also got resistance from a Christian who, based on scripture, predicts that the end times are near. So, here's my argument that global harmony is inevitable and that my optimism is a realistic prediction based on the evidence.
This is essentially a measurement problem, so...
I have posted these points on a number of forums and rarely seem to get a response on them. I'd like to give them their own thread and see what others may have to say. These are not the typical arguments like eis is always forward looking, although I'm seeing growing evidence for that, and the ones that says repent is in included in the "for" forgiveness of sins, although that's a rock solid argument in and of itself. These are inconsistencies or clashes that I've seen that are more subtle,...
Does original Islam teach the Idea of Qaim (Mahdi) and return of Christ or these ideas were added later.
Did Prophet Muhammad and Quran originally taught about Mahdi and return of Christ, or the Hadithes and Traditions of Mahdi and Christ were fabricated by others?
There are other new religious and thought movements that are minor, and it remains to be seen if they will survive or not.
Given the tendency of humans to wipe out or assimilate other ideologies- do you recognize how against the odds it actually is that your worldview has survived until today? There is something about the thought movements and religions mentioned that would...
Yeah, I'll admit, the title of the thread borders on clickbait.
A new scientific theory was just revealed that refutes truths in your current belief structure. What do you do?
Let's be clear on the definition of scientific theory...
"A scientific theory is an explanation of an aspect of the natural world that can be repeatedly tested, in accordance with the scientific method, using a predefined protocol of observation and experiment."
Scientific theory - Wikipedia
Lets start with the word 'Messiah' or 'Anointed' within the Tanakh, which we find in Daniel 9:26, and Isaiah 52:14 in the dead sea scrolls version, where there is an additional yod on the word blemished, making it 'anointed'.
Thus these are the only specific references to an 'anointed one'; people who like to take all the best bits about the Messianic age, and then apply them to the Messiah are not being logically consistent.
In both these texts the person is cut off from the land of the...
(it's only 2:30 long)
I'm not so interested in Dawkins reply to the request to come up with one sentence to convince the creationist to doubt their theory, but rather his observation of the intractable stance creationists take against the evidence supporting evolution. Dawkins says creationists "simply don't listen They simply stick their fingers in their ears and say 'la la la' " Dawkins calls this a disgrace to the human species.
So my question to the RF creationists here is, is this...
How likely do you reckon it is that atheists will in the future divide into schools of thought along more defined lines? I figure the possibility is at least pretty good, given the nature of humans.
However, I have a few examples to offer as to how this is somewhat already happening.
In the case where a Buddhist considers themselves atheist (I usually say secular Buddhism, but for this thread let's just say Buddhism) for example- they are an atheist that holds some unverified beliefs and...
