I recall as a child growing up in a cafeteria Catholic family that we made it to church every Sunday unless it interfered with mundane tasks such as home improvement, planting a garden, etc.''
My recent promotion has interfered with my daily routine, though I have made it a point to reserve some time to do what I feel is important.
How do you balance your religious/spiritual practice with your day-to-day life?
I challenge everyone of you to update your information on the following topics.
The discovery of EMF and electromagnetism.
The Cold war and Admiral Byrd's expedition to antarctica.
The creation of NASA in 1959 and landing on the moon in 1969.
Between 1955 and 1992 the Russians did 36 expeditions to the South Pole, during which times we we're supposedly at the peak height of space exploration against Russia. But they weren't going to space, instead they went to antarctica.
Do you think that God should communicate directly to everyone in the world?

What exactly was the historical context for the emergence of Bahai'ism from within the Shi'a sect of islam to the extent where it is considered non-Islamic and heretical to Islam according to both Sunni and Shi'a?

Without God that is easy to grasp why, but with a God, it would seem that creation experimentation would be carried out elsewhere.
Every so often, someone will voice the opinion that the world would be better off if everybody followed some particular religion. The reasons why someone supposes this vary somewhat, but essentially boil down to the belief that this religion is the best way or even the only true way. Similar opinions are voiced in the name of irreligion when we hear someone state the world would be better off if nobody followed any religions at all. That opinion also holds the assumption that their way is...
About 3000 years or so ago, according to tradition, God made a promise to King David that is recorded in 2 Samuel 7:8-17.
Through Nathan the Prophet, God tells David
"I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the...
Is there a God ?
Geneticist Francis S.Collins. Made a valid point. "If there is no God, then there is no life beyond the present one, no higher authority on moral issues".
The answer however is certainly not evident.
Atheists view this question through the lens of materialism and a philosophy that assumes purely material causes for the origin of life.
Evolutionist Richard C.Lewontin made his bias clear: "We (atheist) have a prior commitment to materialism, ... materialism is absolute,...
