The Pope has questioned US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's Christianity over his call to build a border wall with Mexico.
Pope Francis said "a person who thinks only about building walls... and not of building bridges, is not Christian".
The New York businessman supports deporting nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants.
Calling himself a "proud Christian", Mr Trump blamed Mexico for the Pope's remarks, calling them "disgraceful".
Mr Trump has alleged that Mexico sends...
Fair enough we have to raise children together; yet mammals in nature generally live in a commune society, thus the offspring have a more balanced education...
So is there any proof other then our made up religious texts, to show where and why we're designed to be married to only one person?
I've been in a debate over objective reality which has wetted my appetite, but unfortunately the individual I was debating refuses to engage in actual philosophy. So now I bring the question to all! Can you prove objective reality exists? That other minds are real, that you're not a brain in a vat, that there is an objective universe, and so on? Arguments and evidence are great, but proof would definitely win you some points, though I don't believe such proof is possible.
Wasn't sure where 2 post this ... it's a little "out there"
Has anyone here heard about ascension?
Some people believe that the earth and humanity are shifting from a 3D reality into a 4D & 5D reality.

God loves us through our darkest moments
This quote comes from a...
By that, I mean how do you know the god or goddess you worship is actually a good deity? As in, a decent, moral, ethical deity? I personally believe almost all the gods and goddesses, both alien and indigenous existed and interacted with humans and helped made us what we are.
But how do you know your deity actually did the good things the deity claimed they did. How do you know the deity you worship wasn't actually some evil one that did bad things. Sometimes that happens even in history...
I believe the gospel is the "good news" of the historical event of Christ's death on the cross, burial, and resurrection to save and redeem human beings for eternity.
I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you -- unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the...
My friend does. She doesnt call it that. Since she is a woman once a month she washes blood on her face. She says it clears the skin. She believes that her family does black magic and mapulating her family because they are American therefore "rich."
I have my own supersitions. I place salt in the corners my rooms for protection. One corner per room. I believe in blessings and the power of prayer. Horse shoes and wearing or using colors for different means like protection. No walking on...
This view has been raised more than once, most recently by @buddhist and @Jedster.
It is nonsense.
I participate in a weekly Torah class which is currently working yet again through Genesis. I typically sit there with three different translations in front of me: Alter, Fox, and the [N]JPS Torah Commentary: Genesis. Others in the class may be referring to the Plaut Commentary, the Jewish Study Bible, the R.E. Friedman translation and commentary, Etz Hayim, the Stone Edition Tanach, or...
If Allah made us to worship him, why not have it in the design plan....?
People get overwhelming quantities of pleasure drugs in the brain called dopamine, anandamide, serotonin, etc.... That cause us to go seeking certain pleasurable stimuli.
So why isn't there euphoria from worshiping Allah, you'd think even to get more dopamine from it, then we get from porn, gambling, alcohol, etc, would induce people to be more inclined to worship, then to go the other way.
So clearly Allah didn't...
