The question is prompted by a remark atheist David Silverman made in an article on his book Fighting God. The article quotes him as saying:
“Some … people call me a (jerk) because I challenge the absurd notion that religion deserves respect by default. But religion is wrong for demanding respect simply for being, and even more wrong for demanding never to be questioned."
What do you think? Think he has a reasonable point? ,,,,Why, why not?
LANSING, Mich. — To counter a live Nativity scene planned next weekend on the Michigan state Capitol lawn, a Satanic group plans to resurrect its own “snaketivity” display begun last year.
A Nativity scene that Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is planning will happen the evenings of Dec. 12 and 13.
The Satanic Temple of Detroit is awaiting approval from the Michigan State Capitol Commission to perform its own live display Dec. 19, Jex Blackmore, the temple’s director, said at a...
With all the religions who accept Jesus as their Savior, there are numerous realms of thought and doctrine. How could a person choose which has Christ's approval? Jesus' words at Matthew 7:21-23 come to mind. It does matter.
Interestingly, and fortunately for us, Jesus didn't say how to ID his true followers by what they teach, but rather, by how they act!!
Read, please, John 13:34-35. "Love among themselves," huh? Don't a lot of groups? No doubt! So how would this love be different, to...
I'm not sure if I can post a poll on here but who here believes that the universe originated from nothing? As some of the major scientific theories from the 20th century claimed or was there an originator of some sort? Doesn't have to be God necessarily in your opinion. Who believes the universe has no beginning? I'm just curious as to what you guys believe with regard to this topic and what the basis of your belief would be?
I've got to say, at first I thought this incident wasn't related to international terrorism, but apparently it is looking more and more like that is the case. Yet, Obama came out today saying that the US is safe from ISIS. Does anyone else see this as a bit counter-intuitive?
So there is a myth being propagated that science and religion are incompatible and must always be at odds. I for one disagree. To me science is holy. My god is among other things a god of knowledge and understanding. I and he do not see science as a threat but as a method of increasing knowledge of the universe as well as finding ways to manipulate the universe for our benefit. Science is not evil, or satanic, or sinful. Knowledge is, (they say) power, and the quest for knowledge will never...
"Muhammad." The nearly ubiquitous name evokes different thoughts in the minds of people from all walks of life. For Muslims, he is a teacher, an exemplary prophet and messenger of Allah to whom the perfect, final word of divine truth was revealed. He was also a merchant and a charismatic leader. But was Muhammad only the founder of a new religion and a charismatic leader?
To me, the answer is no. He was much, much more than that. Being a visionary was perhaps the main factor that catapulted...
Suppose for the sake of discussion that after many, many stimulating cups of coffee you stumbled upon a brilliant, purely logical proof that deity must necessarily exist. Would this purely logical proof alone be sufficient to demonstrate the existence of deity? Or would it need to be confirmed by empirical evidence? Why or why not?
