This has been pointed out numerous times by numerous people in the past few years
Several " refutations " of the apparent significance of this include:
~ Nautical miles weren't a unit until quite recently
~ Nobody knows the precise location of the original Kaaba or supposed wall of Solomon's Temple, or even if it was part of Solomon's temple, or another structure
~ " numerology " is for fools
Now, I'm not trying to rub anything in here, or troll anybody like a jerk, but the last thread I...
This week Monday, I had a vision attack episode. Off and on, my vision would go completely double and no one knows the cause they just know it's not physical. Anyway. The bus driver is very fundamental pastor and I try to get on the bus as everyone is helping me. As we talk (as we do from time to time), he...fast forward...prays for me. He says "say 'in Jesus name'" I told him I didn't feel comfortable saying this in the form of prayer. He says that by praying in His name, my vision would be...
Peace and blessings to all. I started to ponder upon this subject after my husband (who is Muslim) and I watched a debate with the well known writer, public speaker and missionary Ahmed Hoosen Deedat. I am Christian and while I acknowledge Mr. Deedat had valid points and is very knowledgeable, I can't help but to ask more....questions that I haven't heard anyone ask like...

IF such a being truly wrote a book .... what would it look like?
Sophistry, a deliberately invalid argument or statement displaying ingenuity in reasoning in the hope of deceiving someone, bugs the crap out of me. Statements like "I would have to know what you mean by "spirit" before thinking about whether a body can produce one" and “Metabolism would fit that [dictionary] definition [of spirit]” are prime examples of what I mean.
Give me a break.
The dictionary definition of spirit is “the vital principle or animating force within living things.” Only...
Thinking to a recent thread about God's inaction in the face of human suffering, I got to thinking: it isn't just that God doesn't seem to act in response to suffering; it's that God doesn't seem to act at all.
I've seen theists try to reconcile this with different justifications for why God might exist but be "hands-off", but all this ignores the fact that the inaction of God (or gods) can also be reconciled with a different premise: that no gods exist.
With this in mind, a challenge for...
Peace and many blessings be upon you all! It's been a bit since I've created a thread on the Forums, but I — as an eager learner — am going to pose a question or two:
#1) What are some misconceptions people have about your faith tradition? How have they regarded it? What do you do to try to educate others who may know about it or have those misconceptions?
#2) What are some misconceptions that you have about other faiths or their adherents? What steps have you taken to educate yourself?
