For Jihadist, I mean middle eastern folks who hate western culture, western ideas. For example I've see films, documents from Palestine where young boys are taught that western culture is evil. Everything about the west should be despised.
People who believe they are fighting against evil. Any act of violence against the west is justified. How should America, Europe handle these people? Should we write them off. Take any steps necessary to keep them out of the west or should we feel...
If you believed that the truth of the universe was that it was meaningless and that human life was a mere accident is this a good enough reason to try and adopt a different set of beliefs? Is It enough of a reason that someone who thinks all this is depressing and that existing would at least be a little bit better with belief in god even if that god doesn't exist to try and believe in a god?
You could argue that belief in a god or anything supernatural won't help if it's forced. I would...
What are people's thoughts on the massive amount of violence depicted in the Bible?
When I used to be a Christian, I was unaware of many of the nastier things depicted in the Bible due to the fact that I would read (for the most part) "popular" passages and remain ignorant of the rest. When I finally did research, I was shocked at the seemingly random killings and genocides depicted. Here is an example of some:
Jehova: "A Murderer and a...
I have a question and critique for the Forum/ How is it that every debate is between Atheists and Fundamentalist Christianity. I see posts that are always from a Fundamentalist Christian point of view Pagans, Atheists, Buddhists, Hindus and few others. But every Christian response I read is from a Fundamentalist conservative Christian view point. SO where are all our wonderful Liberal Christians?
Have you ever thought about how bizarre the crucifixion story is? Imagine the all-powerful, all-knowing creator of the universe sitting on his magnificent throne in heaven. He looks down onto earth and says to himself:
Those evil humans down on earth. I hate what they are doing. All this sin...
Since I am all-knowing I know exactly what the humans are doing and I understand exactly why they commit each sin. Since I created the humans in my own image and personally programmed human nature...
Sometimes when I listen to certain music I feel a sort of spiritual mood come over me. Meditative prayerful sort of mood really. I was just wondering what kind of music puts you in that sort of mood?
Here are a few of mine.
Arabic Orthodox Chant احمدوا الرب - YouTube
Green Tara Mantra (108 Repetitions)
And some are bit more active. Like they make me want to take part in some loud ritual.
Yog-Sothoth by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets - YouTube
Sabaton-The Last Stand...
I watched a documentary recently about mediums, and it all seemed very convincing, that there are people out there who can 'channel' the dead, and bring some closure for those of us who have lost loved ones, and maybe are still searching for answers. Some religions teach that mediums are evil, but I happen to think that maybe there are some people who have this special ''gift.'' What do you think? Do you ''believe'' in mediums?
Have you ever hired one to help you communicate with a deceased...
Often it is taken for granted that Jesus (p) is God. 2,000 years of tradition has taken precedent over the actual words of the Bible and the Word himself.
I am going to post the verses used to "prove" Jesus (p) is God, show how they do the exact opposite and thus prove with the evidence used pro Jesus being God it actually proves the opposite. It is not at all difficult.
Then I will post the verses that directly contradict the theory that Jesus is equal to God, and if he is not equal he is...
