So, God must have a reason for hiding himself and hiding the truth. A lot will say, the truth isn't hidden, just read the Bible and the Koran. I've read them both, and the truth is hidden. Both books contain verses that say the opposite of what other verses say, leading people to opposite conclusions. Much of the Bible is hyperbole, poetry, parable, allegory, and symbolic, leading to God only knows how many conflicting interpretations. It simply isn't clear. The Koran severely...
This is specifically in relation to arguments positing an intelligent god as creator, and more specifically intelligent-design arguments of the "watchmaker analogy" form. For anyone unfamiliar (probably not too many) this is a point quite often offered as a "proof" of God's existence in debates that goes something like this:
If you see a watch lying out somewhere, you realize there must have been a watchmaker, therefore, the universe/Earth/life being that much more complex than "a watch"...
I just saw a movie the other night and in one of the scenes a man asks someone to loose he's purple tie as it brings bad luck ( and mentions it is just a superstition )

the prophet was at the age of 25, he loved her regardless of her age and they stayed
married for 25 years...
The New Testament is not a Canon of scripture.
The only closed canon is the Pentateuch. All other scripture is commentary on the Pentateuch and should not be considered "closed," or a "canon."
The New Testament drew first blood. It was written, codified, and falsely canonized before the Talmud followed suit.
I'm not claiming to be the beast of the apocalypse, but the Bible says there are many antichrists (and I am one of them,) but it is out of compassion. I'm an antichrist because I'm oppossed to God and the Bible even to the point of hating them both.
Some say the Antichrist will be a false prophet who introduces the world a Religion which unites all Religions. I think that is absolutely beautiful for so many religions and philosophies contain truth and beauty. So much division and...

Bible, King James Version (KJV) there are some textual (transliteration) differences from my favourite, the original from the Aramaic of the Pe****ta (George Lamsa) translation, this “original” English version and the Greek/Latin version(s).
As crazy as it sound, even to me: Revelation the possible...
