If you were going to believe that anyone had completed the first-ever human head transplant, it would be Sergio Canavero.
The Italian neurosurgeon gives off a mad-scientist vibe that fits well with what you might expect from a guy looking to connect the the spine, nerves and blood vessels of two living people – thus making us immortal.
“For too long nature has dictated her rules to us,” Canavero said in a press conference earlier this week, in which he claimed to have successfully...
Living a life without a belief in God is known to cause an existential crisis within most atheists. Imran Hussein explains why by referencing an ayah (verse) from the Qur'an. The Ayah in question is from Surah Ta'ha, 20:124 "And whoever turns away from My remembrance - indeed, he will have a depressed life, and We will gather him on the Day of Resurrection blind." - Dawah Digital blurb for the following video:
This video got me thinking. How do atheists deal with their existential crisis?...
Harikrish has presented scriptural verses that challenge the Christian teachings of original sin and how death came into the world. The scriptures give us a different reading of the account in Genesis that led to the banishment of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and their fall from grace. God's own words incriminate Him.
First the scriptural evidence.
We know God created 2 special trees in the garden of Eden.
Genesis 2:9 The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the...
Lately, my mind has flung me back towards polytheism. This is not a bad thing unto itself. Nothing wrong, right? Not exactly. I had asked several of you about how to deeply engage with religion (in general), with @Vinayaka (bless his heart and soul) suggesting something to the effect of “DJ, stop thinking about it.”
@Quintessence had also, I think, driven home the point that religion is meant to be engaged with, practiced, not merely thought about or believed in.
Their words of advice...
This video is set up to go right into the place where Pastor David Herzog
speaks about what he was shown about an Exodus..... of Jews.... from the USA to Canada....
and then to Israel.
This is shocking but.......
economic and environmental troubles do tend to get blamed on minorities......
"For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?"
The jury seems to be out on this question among those who identify as Christians.....so was the flood a real event or was it just a dramatized myth with a message?
God commanded Noah: “Make for yourself an ark out of wood of a resinous tree.”—Genesis 6:14.
Some might be familiar with children's storybook illustrations like this...
But what is exactly is an ark?
This ark was not a ship, as some assume. It had neither bow nor stern, keel nor rudder—no bends or curves. It was basically a...
So in my encounters with certain Christians I've noticed when they want to discuss Jesus they use phrases like "I'm saved" or they'll say "I'll pray for you" etcetera. Now, I'm all for the praying and a friendly discussion about Jesus of Nazareth and their views on him but sometimes the context in which the discussion about Jesus can be somewhat offensive.
Example #1 "Jesus said nobody comes to the Father except through me....It does not matter if you're a good person if you don't know...
Once again I find myself needing to find explore and find a new faith group. Quick background, I grew up in a religious, but non-denominational family. After spiritual experiences I then joined the LDS church which I attended for quite some time. After a few life-events, I am now seeking to find a group that:
Does not believe in any "caste" system for the afterlife (degrees of glory, eternally outcast→favorite children)
Embraces spiritual experiences, includes more than intellectual study...
When we are younger, it is often heard , when you grow up, when you become an adult as a reason that prohibited someone from "X". Unfortunately, it has become a belief that one becomes an adult by just by living "X" years. So essentially we don't change, we just get older and we are awared adulthood becoming nothing more than old children thinknig we are adults as witnessed on this forum.
Now I don't believe that this guy, the auther of "Once I was a child I did... blah blah but then I...
