An atheist on my forum said: “if God existed, then proof of his existence would be possible. The proof isn't there, and the best explanation for that lack of proof would be that neither is the god there.”
If God existed, would God provide proof of His existence? If you answer yes, please explain why you think that God would provide proof of His existence.
Is it possible that God exists and has chosen not to provide proof of His existence? If you think it possible that God exists and...
Recently, I heard someone allege that the sciences are empirically oriented because they are dominated by atheists who wish to deny the existence of God. Going beyond the obvious truth of that, what other reasons might there be for why the sciences are empirically oriented?
If this is in an inappropriate forum, mods please move.
Lately I’ve been watching a lot of “ex” whatevers. People who left very controlling religions and call out such behaviour. Which has greatly fascinated me. As a Dharmic, forging one’s spiritual path is something of a matter of pride. Something expected even.
Having “apostate” thoughts isn’t a cause for disfellowship or anything like that. It’s almost encouraged. This does not seem to be the case for the “exes” that I’ve been watching....

Christ Myth - central tenets:
1. There is no unambiguous reference to a historical, or a Gospel Jesus in the earliest...
Why is it sinful for man?
Are there any homosexual animals?
That many humans are homosexual is well known but we also know the behaviour is extremely common across the animal kingdom, from insects to mammals. So what's really going on? Can these animals actually be called homosexual?
....... For some animals, homosexual behaviour isn't an occasional event – which we might put down to simple mistakes – but a regular thing....
...... "So many females of the group are engaging in this...
Someone pointed out some one-sidedness in a thread that I started, I’m a science denier, an enemy of science, so I decided to try to balance that out with this thread.
What I’m denying is the validity of all proofs of the existence or reality of the God of Abraham. Saying that I’m an enemy of God beliefs doesn’t mean that I want to campaign against them. It means that I’m denouncing the practice of people calling their beliefs “what God says,” and what I’m promoting might undermine that....
