Since I Can't post in the DIR I'll make a thread here. It's been a few years actually, I'm certain to meet many new people and I hope to encounter many of my old friends here.
The literal translations of "Satan" mean "opposition" or "adversary". By this definition, any and all "God(s)" are essentially a Satan to the will of nature and the universe as we know it, based in entropy and self preservation. And so, I conjure that not only is every God Satan, but Satan is the universe itself, as...
The apostle Paul was well-educated and extremely zealous for the traditions of his fathers. His beliefs however created problems for him. It led to him persecuting the congregation of God and devastating it. It required a dramatic intervention by Jesus himself to move Paul to adjust his beliefs.
By exercising their freedom of religion, earth's 8 billion inhabitants have produced an amazing diversity of beliefs. This leads to the question, should we exercise caution in regards to what we...
"We tend to see purpose in the world. We tend to see agency. We think something is there even if you can't see it. All that tends to build up a religious way of thinking." Roger Tiggs
Well folks, it looks like the scientific research is in. Two researchers at Oxford University compiled over 40 different studies that show an innate drive towards religion rather than it being purely a taught, cultural phenomenon. Here is a summary of the study (I wish Oxford had published the actual study...
Genesis 3:15 (KJV)
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise his heel.
"thy seed" means children of Satan, as in Cain and all of his children he would later father.
Daniel 2:43 (KJV)
43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

I believe my spirituality is highly effected by my personality.
The MBTI types me as an Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging sort (INFJ). This type has at different times been called the Counselor, the Advocate, the Confidant, and the Ethicist. We are the rarest of the 16 personalities, and the hardest to get to know -- we are often referred to as mysterious. If you google INFJ I guarantee everything you read will fit me like a glove; you'll know more about me in five minutes than most...
A group of 33 scientists and authors, who've authored the journal article "Cause of Cambrian Explosion - Terrestrial or Cosmic" published in the March issue of the scientific peer-reviewed journal "Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, suggests octopuses are likely of extraterrestrial origin. Their conclusion that octopuses likely have an extraterrestrial origin is reached in part on the basis of the octopuses' particular ability to routinely edit their RNA sequences for adapting to...
in Christian and Islamic tradition, fire is symbolic as a form of punishment in the hereafter. In some interpretations sulfur is implied inChristian eschatology, but why fire? Why is the act of burning significant as a form of punishment?
Islam provides the most nightmarish imagery of hell. But why hot boiling water, or fire burning off the epidermis? I figure that in life people suffer simply from memory or from a loved one loss in an early death, but one thing that alludes me is why fire?...
Has any one seen this attraction? Its a wonder it's still afloat financially speaking... What is it that people can "believe" that dinosaurs were saved on this thing from a global flood just about 7000 years ago.

Along with this, did any one see the Nye vs Ham debate a few years ago? I dont blame Nye for doing the debate, he blew Ham out of the water... but in reality Ham didn't have to win, he just needed to generate...
