Essentially this was at best more towards Christianity. But this can be to anything of mafia religious culture of groups in origin.
"Christians always feel oppressed when they can't oppress others".
This is so spot on true. It is so ironic but brilliant. What do you think?
The religion in difference to Christianity is life is a trial. Compare it to Saw movie with John Kramer. Its a test to see how grateful you are for living. Well Satan is just a creation tool of a game that their religion has made. So meaning if you can follow in the right path you are rewarded if not you are going to death.
I personally don't believe in Abrahamic sects. I believe in God of obvious good and evil, because in the end... how do you know if its right? I think it was made for...
Assuming free will exists, then what exactly is it that has free will? Normally, we might say "you" or "I" have free will, but what exactly and precisely is that "you" or "I"?
For instance, is it the same as your consciousness? That is, is it the conscious mind that has free will? And, if so, is there anything beyond the conscious mind that has free will?
So you're a gladiator in the Coliseum and you either fight or die. Do you kill the other gladiator who is also forced to fight or just let them kill you? Die a martyr. Refuse to compromise your belief in freedom and not murdering anyone.
Both ways you think your life is worth something. But who is right? Is your life worth more because you're willing to give it up or is it worth more because you value it enough to save it?
Why is life so easy for some people and so difficult for others?
This is a philosophical question but I put this in Religious Debates because the “reason” life is difficult for some and easy for others is related to God, since God predestines everything that happens to us and we really have no control over what God does. That belief is based upon this passage:
“O thou who art the fruit of My Tree and the leaf thereof! On thee be My glory and My mercy. Let not thine heart grieve over what...
Why only humans are different than the rest of animals in terms of thinking, talking
and the way of living, no animal can be compared to humans?
Why we can't even see animals in midway between humans and animals in
terms of thinking, talking and the ability to invent ..etc?
How that is explained by science, we can see different kinds of animals horses, donkeys, dogs,
different kind of birds, but why humans are unique?
I read the Quran, Gospel, Tora and i am reading the Avesta, and doing research about the Vedas. In the Quran there is are verses about science which i wonder how they could be written 1400 years ago. These verses are being proved to be true in just the last 200 years.
For example, a prophecy about humanity going into space, how mountains move, how milk is made in the blood, how the human being is being formed in the belly, that ants have a complex way of communication like humans, black...
As I understand it, there are in mathematics an infinite number of infinities.
There is, for example, infinity, infinity + 1, infinity + 2, infinity + 3, and infinity + @SalixIncendium's horrifying lime-striped tuxedo, which he typically wears with pink sandals. And so on, infinity after infinity.
Now, the question is, "What does it mean to say 'God is infinite'?"
Does that mean there's an infinite god, an infinite god + one more infinite god, an infinite god plus two more infinite...
Please Note: I offer the following as a for fun thought exercise, and not as a description of my own views on the matter. Enjoy!
Let us posit that X exists but cannot by any means -- either empirical, rational, or other means -- be demonstrated to exist. That is, the existence of X cannot be deduced, inferred, observed, nor detected.
If such is the case, can it be said that X -- even if if it exists -- is of no possible consequence?
By "consequence", I mean "having an effect on...
