"Hawking, Dawkins, DeGrasse- I'm sure could give lectures and sell books on their knowledge of academic definitions of science to your satisfaction. Can you name the single greatest practical scientific contribution of any of them?"
The thread was conceptualized from post #69 @Guy Threepwood , one may like to read the full post to understand its context. Thanks to him.
The strange similarities of religious 'supernatural' concepts and the things that exist at the limitThe strange similarities of religious 'supernatural' concepts and the things that exist at the limits of scientific knowledge
I became interested in religious concepts such as life after death and religious beliefs such as Christianity in part by science. So I wanted to share a couple observations an ask for feedback from those that may have similar ideas. For example we humans that believe real existence and reality begins after death have a problem. There is not even one person that can...
Happened to come across this little video from 2015.
Do such changes make any difference in your regard of the Bible?
Now someone approached him and said, “Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?”** If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”* i He asked him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, “ ‘You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness;* The young man said to him, “All of these I have observed.

Of course this doesn’t really work against a Universalist god. One that isn’t overly concerned with how you worship but is more concerned with how you behave. After all this sort of God would be fine with our...
The rejection of Islam.
Over the years that I have left Islam my mind has become more and more convinced that Islam is a downright fabrication. In fact I have come to regard it as one of the greatest cons in the history of man. On par with Mormonism when it comes to how downright silly the whole thing is.
With that being said why not invite Muslims to defend their own brand of loony with their own arguments. In return I will be posting some of the reasons I have rejected Islam and will more...
I am starting out on a general basis. Certainly one may argue about certain elements as to how logical they are but I am looking for whether it makes any sense for any kind of religious activity to exist.
My beginning argument for it being logical is that religion is like tradition. A person fiinds something that works so it becomes something worth repeating.
Fod instance the chant of "om" is believed to work as a way to enter into meditation.
Only joking - they aren't actually.
A bunch of them, however, are getting mighty uppity about the 'removal' of the word Easter from the Cadbury's annual egg hunt. For more information on this outrageous attack on British Christian identity, visit Cadbury's website easter.cadbury.co.uk
And for the love of Eostre, try not to roll your eyes so hard they fall out of their sockets!
