If the Biblical god really exists, and is not a figment of the imagination, why does it not make its presence clear without equivocation?
By not revealing its presence in a way that is irrefutable, it would be most unjust if unbelief resulted in dire consequences as some would have you believe.
A PROOF THAT GOD EXISTS.
According to Moses Maimonides, a Philosopher, Theologian and Medical Doctor in his book "The Guide for the Perplexed," there would be no need for a Creator if the universe was eternal, without beginning or end. In other words, God would not exist. However, if the universe did have a beginning,God by necessity would exist.
From Abraham and until Aristotle God existed only for the pious who could exercise faith. For Cosmologists God had only been a probability,...
Here's an essay I wrote a few years ago. Sorry its a bit long - but feel free to tear my argument to shreds...
The following partial definitions of atheism and materialism are taken from the American Atheists web pages:
Atheism may be defined as the mental attitude which unreservedly accepts the supremacy of reason and aims at establishing a life-style and ethical outlook verifiable by experience and scientific method, independent of all arbitrary assumptions of authority and creeds....
Half of American Adults Think It Should Be Illegal for Married Women to Keep Their Last Names
The best/worst line in the article.
What's more, in an earlier study, people who believed women should change their names when they get married should do so because it "prioritizes their marriage and their family ahead of themselves."
The man doesn't have to prioritize the marriage I guess or put his family first.
50% of american adults Well lets see, comments and poll.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ's, then ye are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
According to St. Paul, to be members of Christ's body is to be "seed of Abraham." Before his name was changed from "Abram" to "Abraham," Abram fathered seed through Hagar. After his name was changed to "Abraham" he fathered seed through Sarah. So...
The followers of the old gods continue to grow & prosper
Members of the Polish tradition Rodzimowierców announced in December that they intend to build a temple & cultural centre. They've already raised 6% of the total funds needed in a Crowdfunding campaign!
If god had been created as a female by the authors of the Bible instead of a male, would women have been treated very differently over the centuries? In my opinion, god was only given the male gender because in the ancient world men were considered to be superior to the female. If any god does exist it is more likely to be genderless.
Women featured in the Bible aren't treated well on the whole, but as reproductive machines for the most part. Solomon's many concubines obviously played a...
Since our beliefs are often confused with everyone's ideas of Oneness; thought would post here to answer any questions on our understanding of 0neness (Zeroness)...
Feel free to test any points within it, and what you're curious about; as always learning from what is expressed...
A basic guide to what 0neness is:
All of reality is made from consciousness, vibrating at different frequencies...
Within the core of all consciousness, there is a singularity; which is better known as...
This is something we had a recent thread about in regards to Christianity, and something we hear a lot when discussing groups like Catholics, Mormons, and JWs, but what about your religion? In your personal opinion, what does it take for a person to be part of your faith? Which beliefs do they have to have, which ideas must they subscribe to for them to be able to say they are of that faith? Are there any rites of passage required to enter it (like an oath or ceremony)? Finally, for those of...
