From time to time I read/hear that the flaw with science is that it has limits. Well, I am going to suggest that this is not a weakness; instead it is strength. I think it is because science recognizes limits that it is able to make the great strides that it has made. Only once we recognize our limits can we work to move beyond them.
Proverbs 21:19 (New Living Translation)
It is better to live alone in the desert than with a crabby, complaining wife.
There's the story of Isaac’s son, who smelled like a farm.
Genesis 27:27 (New International Version)
So he went to him and kissed him. When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes, he blessed him and said, "Ah, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field that the LORD has blessed.
2 Kings 2:23-24 (New International Version)
From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was...
I was inspired by the thread religion adapting to scientific discoveries to start this thread. The idea that science and religion are mutually exclusive, which has its roots in Cartesian thought, is not something which occurs in Hinduism. In Hinduism science and religion compliment one another. It is the only religion that has its own systems of philosophy, the so-called 6 systems(sad-darsanas) and it the only religion that actually has science as a part of it -- like the science of politics...
Do Christians still really think Satanists represent their enemy?
I was recently reading various social media sites and political feeds, and it seems that there are many Christians who know nothing about Satanism but rather accept their denominations view of the situation as the absolute truth. They conflate Satanists, Witch, Wiccan, Druid, and nearly anything else pagan to be the same thing, so that's sort of why I put this post here. I felt it was curious to combine these things into one...
Recent scientific discoveries/theories have come into conflict with what is written in sacred texts of some religions and will likely continue to do so moving forward. How has your religion adapted to such scientific discoveries? While I understand that select religions blindly hold steadfast to their doctrine, if you subscribe to such a religion, how have you adapted your personal beliefs?
What are your thoughts about the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performing at Trump's inauguration? I suspect those who supported trump will support the choir and those who do not like Trump will question the Mormon Church's decision to send what is, perhaps, its best ambassador (the choir) to the inauguration. The choir also performed for Reagan and both H.W. Bush and W. Bush.
The following is intended to bring out the fact that some of the Bible's translators deliberately pussyfooted around its more difficult/embarrassing passages, very likely to more easily sell Christianity, but in turn torpedoed its veracity. Hardly an admirable enterprise, especially by those who expect us to believe they're dedicated to God's "truth."
My example is Isaiah 45:7 (a verse I've used before for other reasons) wherein God says:
"I form the light, and create darkness: I...
how can Jesus be fit into Hinduism? I assume there are many more Hindus like me.
I believe in Jesus from growing up in the UK and going to a C of E school although I think Orthodoxy is the 'true' Christianity and Catholics and Protestants are divergent movements.
What do you call it when someone from one religion picks up the belief in another. Religion is indeed linked to geography
