I had a Wiccan friend criticize me for calling Psychics, Astrology and Magic Crystals pseudoscience. He argued that we can't prove that these things don't work (we actually can), and there is energy and forces in the universe we aren't aware of yet (perhaps, but these have no bearing on these types of easily discounted New Age woo). Now, the kicker is that he said that all truth is relative to individuals and people should be able to believe whatever they want.
I find that infuriating...
If I'm not mistaken Jainism doesn't believe in creationism and Buddhism doesn't either. And if you want to count them, Jediism doesn't either. I'm guessing non-theistic religions wouldn't believe in creationism. Although surprisingly I see a lot of pagans here that actually don't believe in a creator deity or that we were made by a certain deity, despite that their mythology mentions creator deities sometimes.
Some people think religious people must believe in creationism but there seems to...
I have a question regarding this. Go ahead and tell me how I am wrong on it if I really am wrong. I personally don't think free will is an illusion because if you were to look at an unconscious organism such as a plant, then its acts are fixed. They are fixed towards survival. For example, the plant takes in sunlight, absorbs water, and all other processes of the plant are never random and are never against its own survival. They are fixed towards the survival of the plant.
So the same...
I believe most people think that religion only talk about god,moral and blah blah blah so on.
But,do u really think that a religion is created just because of that?To create a religion,you need proof and reasonable resources,not some useless story!
Before I start please aware that I meant no offence to any religion,I only say what I know.
I will take Buddhism as example,when i first look into the main story about the Buddhism,I was touched about how Buddha wanted to end the suffering of...
I googled this and got "Christianity" is the most persecuted religion world wide.
But google this for yourself as there are many web articles about the persecution of Christians
I go to a forum specifically for pagans; and, a subject/post came up that made me think. The poster asked, "how does one hear god?"
Not hear as in a sensation, events happening when it otherwise wouldnt, dreams, and such. The replier said that the christians where he is from usually say things like:
"The Lord told me the other day that I shouldnt be going out jogging so late at night." Then that christian cuts on the news and finds someone murdered in the same area he or she usually jogs....
John 1:12 KJV But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 1:12 NASB But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,
John 1:12 NIV Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God---
Juan 1:12 RV60 Mas a todos los que le recibieron, a los que creen en su nombre, les dio potestad...
This is an old one that really grates on the evolutionist, and even the knowledgeable creationist, but because it keeps popping up from time to time I thought I might explain (got nothing better to do---it's raining outside).
Fact of the matter is, monkeys still exist because we never replaced them. They evolved from early prosimians millions of years ago. Like 25 ++ millions of years ago, the same time another form of primate diverged from the prosimians, those that eventually evolved...
