How did Russell equate his crazy teapot to God? There is no way to compare: God is everywhere, but the teapot is in one place.
Everybody knows, that it is just a crazy joke of atheists:
1. Red invisible dragon in the garage,
2. Russell's Teapot,
3. Pink Unicorn, etc.
The problem with these is that they are not omnipresent. Please consider "Unicorn", which exists everywhere, and in your heart and lungs as well.
And if the red dragon is invisible, but it is known, that he is red (and he...
Human inventions have probably been there since they existed. What do you think is the greatest invention of humankind? And why?
"Just as the Quran is a source of religion, so is Hadithes." was a position of a Bahai in this forum. I was intrigued to understand the Bahai position on ahadith.
1. Do Bahai's have an official position on ahadith?
2. Do Bahai's accept and adopt all the hadith or do they filter based on their own methodology?
3. Or, do Bahai's use traditional or modern methodologies developed by Muslim scholarship?
I have seen some atheists use hadith to insult Islam and Muhammed as if they believe in...
Is it appropriate to publish an article in a scientific journal where Hawking is said to be "the leading and outspoken atheist and Professor Dr. Hawking"? Or is the title of an atheist still a shameful thing?

Is it good:
You might say: ``To know everything that means spanning infinity, so,
it would be impossible for such a being to exist.''
No, it is possible, because you are not sure.
If you are perfectly sure, only then it...
Question: Would you recommend the Alpha Course?
(Here is the wikipedia page that's about it)
(Here is its official website)
I'd recommend it
For those of you who don't know what it is, basically it is a course about Christianity aimed at people who are open and interested about Christianity but who don't consider themselves Christian
As a young man I got a chance to do it when I was at University but I turned it down as I was an atheist and truth be told, a bit of a snob:
I now wish...
Since there is no limit to study things and to the accumulation of knowledge
and skills, but at the same time it is impossible to know everything, there is
a being [perhaps on a distant planet]
that knows absolutely everything except for one thing. For example, out of
the answers to 100 hypotheses, it knows 99 answers and does not know
just one answer. And this is just as impossible as
it is to know all 100 answers in full. But this situation does exist in
reality: any reasonable being...
Pushing the limits of your own being may not be a good idea. This line come from a friend of mine
It was something he said during a discussion we had, and it stuck in my mind. Watching my own spiritual journey. To me, it means that as a practitioner of Sufism, it is a fine line between practicing correctly and safely and going into the extreme both ways. Not too lazy and not too much force into the extreme and very difficult part of seclusion, only being alone and so on.
I’ve wondered why God of Israel commanded circumcision. I know it’s a sign of the covenant between Abraham and God, but what does circumcision do? People in the present day often say that circumcision is immoral.
I think the purpose of circumcision is to promote sexual purity. I think the process of being circumcised is similar to neutering ones dog. When you neuter a dog, you take care of some behavioral issues that a tame animal shouldn’t have, right? Perhaps not the best comparison but...
Do you know a religion or cult that suppresses free speech?
If cult leader would say to you, "we reduce ignorance by not allowing all to speak", would you think it is reasonable or not?
I think limiting free speech increases ignorance, because then people will know less. Do you agree with this, or is there some good reason to think the opposite?
