I was going through my notebook and came across "The Buddha's fourth sign was a man in a robe wandering and begging. He gave up everything to wander, beg, and seek answers to this miserable existence."
I found a lot of consolation in that. The lifestyle of the wanderer appealed to me. I don't really have anything to renounce, just a few pictures, extra clothes, some candles, and some notebooks lol. I think I'm gonna just wander, beg, and seek answers and enlightenment. I find that the...
i see. Astro physicist Luke Barnes is speeking tonight at university of Texas Dallas on the subject. Seems to me the universe is fine tuned in many ways : glory is baked in. Psalm 65:8 would suggest there is awe in the sunrise and sunset that washes over those who see the handiwork of god.
Some have also pointed out that the earth is ideal for observing and discovery. Makes sense if the universe is on display for the glory of god
Cartesian theater - Wikipedia
Is the religious science debate just Cartesian theater arguing with Cartesian theater? I am not sure we are are taught some simple things like what's is objective.

In a lot of the debates I have seen on RF and elsewhere about Shari'a, it seems that a staple in almost all of them is a lack of establishing what Shari'a means and what it includes prior to or while debating it.

The first thing to clarify here is that "Shari'a law" is a redundant term: in Arabic,...
Reposted from Hindu DIR:
EDIT: Both Hindus and Atheists can participate in this debate.
I know that there are many atheists who identify as Hindus or Hindu atheists. But I understand there are atheists who identify as Christian as well or Christian atheists. Yet to me this sounds like an oxymoron. People can self-identify as anything, they can even think they are a giant cucumber, but that does not make it right. It seems strange to me that one could be a Hindu atheist, when Hindu...
The Pope suggested the latter, in characteristically blunt language.
He imagined a wealthy Christian knocking at the gates of heaven and saying, "Here I am, Lord! ... I went to Church, I was close to you, I belong to this association, I did this... Don't you remember all the offerings I made?"
To which Jesus may reply, according to the Pope:
"Yes, I remember. The offerings, I remember them: All dirty. All stolen from the poor. I don't know you.' That will be Jesus' response to these...
