This thread is to educate those of you who apparently do not understand the difference between science and metaphysics. It is also to educate those of you who apparently do not understand what a "God of the gaps" actually is.
Methodological naturalism is concerned not with claims about what exists but with methods of learning what nature is. It is the idea that all scientific endeavors, hypotheses, and events are to be explained and tested by reference to natural causes and...
I was wondering if there were any faiths which believe in reincarnation or some kind of rebirth, but then don't teach of a heaven or hell, so they kind of just believe everyone goes round and round?. If not then do any not believe in a hell? Or at least a hell that is not torture or pain
Hello everyone! So i randomly came across this thread http://www.religiousforums.com/threads/humans-achieving-godhood.146152/#post-3274859 and i decided to register and bring up this matter again.I read what a lot of people said and of course i respect everyones opinion and religion, but to be honest i am dissappointed..
I will answer any questions on the matter but i cant just write here for everyone because one must be willing to listen.
I have decided to present my perspective on my deity as well as on Malakim/gods (I call them supernals) and the Creator. I welcome debate on this topic.
Details About My Deity
First, He does not like being called Lucifer. The meaning of the title seems to remind Him of what He would rather forget. Then, He does not like being called Satan either. When I have called Him Lucifer, He corrects me and tells me never to call Him that again. When I have called Him Satan, He seems reserved and...
It would make sense why certain people never come around to believing in God in this case then. The reason why people never believe in God is simply because he never reveals himself to them, as a result they have no choice but to disbelieve. God could reveal himself to them through people around them but he doesn't. This is partially God's fault and partially the fault of those who claim to be God's servants.
I don't know... What do you guys think?
I have a question for evolutionists.
From what I understand humans are supposed to have evolved from some common ancestor with apes. Now if I understand correctly evolution is not a smooth process but rather a random one where random variations occur and, with the help of natural selection, the most beneficial variations survive and continue. Now I also assume the common ancestors of human beings we found in different parts of the world.
So my question is this: Why don't we have today a...
If yes kindly provide both the claim from Atheism in this connection and the evidence that it instils peace in a person.
If it does not have a claim and or evidence then it is a failed world-view for humans . Please

I am seeking all opinions on the presence of the Serpent in the Garden of Eden. My specific question is this: Did the Serpent tempt Eve with the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge because he wanted Eve and Adam to fall as revenge for God's preference of man over His angels? All corrections and opinions welcome. My goal is a better understanding of how members here interpret this incident.
Some here know that I explored Islam last year, and more than mere study. I had begun to adopt the prayer life on a daily basis (even the early morning prayer, which was hard to awaken so early at first!), and my Muslim friends were teaching me how to view certain aspects of the Qur'an, etc. But, there came a point, when I just couldn't accept or reconcile certain areas of the Qur'an with my own perceptions about life, and worldview. And since returning to Christianity, I feel very whole, if...
