This puts the creationist vs evolution debate in its proper context, and holds much truth even though the essay was written 30 years ago. I must confess that while I have never considered myself a militant follower of science, I could not suppress the idea that we are fighting against an inexhaustive army of ignorance which threaten to dim the bright future ahead. I found myself more unnerved by creationism while listening to this than I can remember previously.
The revealed religions must quote claim and reason on an issue from the revealed scripture they believe in. The non-revealed religions, if they have any canonized scripture, must also do the same. The non-religion people must quote from a text book of science or from a peer-reviewed article published in a religion of repute for the claims and reasons on an issue.
Is it fair and useful to know the Truth? Please

I accept evolution. Just thought I would post this article to understand what the author got wrong.
I wasn't sure exactly where to place this, but this seemed a good choice to allow for dissent, and it pertains to religion. So here goes, a thought experiment.
Bob is a simple man. So simple in fact, that he will take at face value anything and everything he is told.
Bob has never heard of religion(edit - or any concept of a god or gods, nice catch Quintessence.) Nobody has ever mentioned it to him, or told him their position on it. The concept is completely unknown to him.
Is Bob an...
1 Corinthians 15:33
They all say "bad associations" are people. I am not backing down for the accepting of that.
I found some more evidence that it means what a person believes and teaches.
A person believes in words.
Isn't that so? I found an old version of "associations" that I feel like sharing.
It is translated homilies which means "a religious discourse that is intended primarily for
spiritual edification rather than doctrinal instruction".
Bad homilies corrupt good ethics....
1. There is no archaeological evidence to support that Vedic people ever lived in the Arctic.
2. Snow and ice which is everywhere in the Arctic is not mentioned in Veda, not to speak of mentioning it very frequently.
3. No animal, plant or bird specific to Arctic is mentioned in Veda.

The end has been nigh for a very long time. I remember the sandwich board men strutting their stuff with this message when I was a kid in the 50s. Whenever there is a national or world crisis the end times merchants get very excited, proclaiming the problems we are experiencing are predicted, although you have to have a very vivid imagination to interpret the Biblical verses they are suggesting refer to whichever crisis we are living through! Remember Harold Campion, who predicted the end of...
The group of Hindus also beat to death members of the females' family. Link is here. This isn't the first time either. India enacted anti-cow-killing laws to avoid offending the religious sensibilities of Hindus some time ago - and these look set to be strengthened by a Hindu nationalist government.
This is absolutely appalling behaviour. Nobody should be treated in such a cruel way and nobody should ever be subject to dietary restrictions or degrading, discriminating treatment based on...
Were There Two Different Jesuses?
When Luke wrote Acts of the Apostles to Theophilus, he guaranteed him that he had dealt with ALL that Jesus did and taught until the end of his life on earth. (Acts 1:1,2) If Luke is someone worthy believing, there must be something wrong with Matthew.
1 - I am not talking about the huge difference in the genealogy of Jesus. (Mat. 1:1-17)
2 - I am not talking about the anxiety of Mary to explain her pregnancy without having yet slept with Joseph. (Mat....
