I am in a state of, "I don't know if I believe in God".
Do you feel it, so you believe? Do you have rational reasons for believing? Do you believe in all the stories in your books, if you have them, and why?
Do you ever doubt that God may exist? How often do you think about God?
IF you have a God or god-like/higher power concept, how do you define/conceptualize that?
For me, there is an unknowable Brahman-like energy that holds the universe together. I don't conceptualize that as a person, or any anthropomorphic thing. I don't think it has a personal interest in me or anyone, or any "divine plan". In fact, my belief in what I call God for lack of a better word wouldn't be called a belief in God at all by an Abrahamic adherent. How do you name the un-nameable? How...
Eden as the last garden tempted: This can be concluded by Cain wandering and finding a wife. After the watcher angels corrupted the other humans in their own gardens they were made to wander just as Adam thus their civilizations were cunstrude before "the fall of man", in which Cain sought shelter. As is told by him telling God that "they" would kill him in the wilderness, he received a mark on his forehead to elude death which usually such markings are to keep demons at bay not people. It...
Is YHVH Omnipotent? Omniscient? Omnipresent? Any one, or all of the above?
I do not believe so, as it makes no sense, in my opinion, for YHVH to have created man, knowing man would grieve him enough for him to cause the flood, then regret causing it, then promise not to cause it again.
So glad we have this forum where I could ask this.
I was raised religious, but came to realize in adolescence that other children are raised in other faiths / belief systems , and the fact that I was handed down my tradition doesn't automatically mean it's true.
So I want to know which religion / belief system / world-view is true, if any. My natural instinct is to look into the various belief systems in the world. But Wikipedia tells me there are more than 4,000 religions in...
mostly every moment I'm not distracted I'm wrestling with concepts, my beliefs, the world, but all centered around God.
I've never met anyone like me and often I feel alone. That the people in the bible are my friend. I relate to them much more than anyone else alive.
The bible seems to explain human relations better than anything or anyone I've experienced so it draws me.
I guess at the end of the day I've learned to live at peace with this, but thought I'd share here to see if others...
By races I mean entirely different races such as giants, dwaves elves, ect. Do you think any races, be it alien or indigenous actually interacted with humans?
In mythology I don't see it as fiction but legend and there is always some truth to legends. Otherwise they wouldn't be legendary in the first place. Perhaps beings from outer space or another dimension, like the Annunaki or other gods came and other races interacted with humans or even interbred with them. Some might be extinct but...
In a recent thread here about the question of whether the media manipulates people into hating Muslims and Islam, I couldn't help but notice a problematic trend: the conflation of hatred of Muslims with the hatred of Islam. This seems to me to be a potentially dangerous conflation, because it effectively extends the respect to which people are entitled to Islam and ideas in general.
When we talk of Muslims, we talk of nearly a billion and a half people. When we talk of Islam, we talk of a...
