I see the moral argument as one of the weakest and most common arguments used to justify theism. There are several potent critiques that are never addressed sufficiently:
1. Presupposing a God doesn't necessarily mean the God is a moral God. The God may be neutral, evil, have characteristics of good, bad, and evil, or be beyond the entire concept of morality. Furthermore, God might not care about morality, or God himself may grapple with moral problems just like humans do and thus we be...
The Bishop of Regensburg, Germany, Rudolf Voderholzer, said on January 30 that there could be no reconciliation between Christians and Muslims. Islam is a "post-Christian phenomenon, with the claim to negate the core content of Christianity," he said. "Only those who do not know their own faith or do not take it seriously can consider a comprehensive integration of Islam as possible."
According to what I hear from science Humans are Great Apes along with Gorillas, Orangutans and Chimpanzees. They are cousins through evolution.
Humans have bodies that are genetically and structurally very similar to those of the Great Apes and so we are classified in the Great Apes sub-group which is also known as the hominids (Family Hominidae). The first apes evolved about 25 million years ago and by 20 million years ago were a very diverse group.
Humans are apes – ‘Great Apes’ -...
I want to do God's will and I pray that I do God's will and find it thoroughly disgusting that God would remain silent and refuse to let me know His will. More than anything I want to know what God wants me to do and He just remains silent and refuses to let me know. It is despicable that God would refuse to reveal his will to a sincere seeker!
I just pray and pray that God would give me the Holy Spirit like he said he would and enlighten me so that I serve him and be obedient to...
With all the current hype about 'quantum entanglement', Bell's Theorem, quantum computing, wavefunction collapse, Einstein being disproved on at least one count and so on -
With all due respect to science and scientists (I teach it, incidentally),
I couldn't help but notice that science has exposed a fundamental truth in nature revealed as early as in Chapter 1 of Genesis.
And that is how God's Word instantaneously executes his commands. (By instantaneous I wish to say - faster than any...
Several times now, I've seen in this and other forums, creationists operate under the assumption that evolution = atheism, where if a person is an "evolutionist" they must also be an atheist. This is odd, as the data shows that in the developed world, the majority of people who recognize evolution as reality are theists.
Public Acceptance of Evolution (Miller et al., 2006)
Here's the figure illustrating the level of acceptance of evolution in the developed world....

This is a serious topic, but I decided to add some fun to it with the number 13.
First, the serious part. It's the way I look at our religious beliefs and differences. It is tied to worldview. Worldview is very personal because it is yours. Someone else cannot have it as I will explain below. You may share a similar worldview, but it is still not the same as your worldview. The dictionary defines it as:
" a comprehensive conception or apprehension of the world especially from a...
