Well I think there is enough in the Bible saying about this. And I think there is enough in the world today to say about this. For the record I do not fear homosexuals, isn't that what a phobia is ? Actually I encourage the LGBT community to carry on and eventually dominate all of society. I would encourage anyone with grace to be like minded, remember S and G ?
I often think about God Debris, a though experiment by Scott Adams. If fist read many years ago.
(its got really big letters so could be a fairly quick read.
When reading it I found that it went along the same lines of reasoning which made me become pantheist.
It proposes that in the beginning god was the singularity and being all powerful and all knowing, the only thing left to do is not exist and so god went explodey and we are left with...
I hear this all the time. "I'm good, therefore I'm going to heaven."
I would ask, why did Jesus bother to die on the cross then?
Are you truly monotheistic?
Please just relax and think about this with an open mind. Abrahamic mythology has an entire pantheon of spiritual beings who are believed to exist Above and Below and Within in a manner beyond our comprehension. In the Abrahamic religions, the term "god" seems to have evolved to mean the ultimate being of ultimate everything... when before, the roles of many gods and goddesses were more comparable to the roles of many of the angels and demons we learn about in...
Have people allowed Religions to convince them that it's all about good and evil? In attempting to convince people that it is all about good and evil, are Religions just attempting to control the actions of people? By creating the division of good and evil, don't Religions divide people into classes based on Religion's view of what good and evil actually are?? A person is a mosaic of many different things. Can one justly label a person as completely good or evil??
OK, let's look around...
From philosophy class years ago...
1. God is all powerful. There is nothing God can't do.
2. God can make a mountain so heavy that He can't lift it.
3. Therefore, God is not all powerful because He can't lift that mountain.
I have no idea why I posted this. I just like thinking about topics such as this.
During my first intern job (around 1999 or 2000) I was outed as an atheist.
I worked at a engine manufacturing company in their design and prototype team. Anyway, I got along great with everyone and really enjoyed working there. One day after work a woman who I worked with had a flat tire and I volunteered to put on her spare for her. She thanked me and told me I was a "great kid."
The next day she came into work and wouldn't talk to me. She actually wouldn't even look at me. I...
I feel that the multiverse, as an explanation for our existence, has more evidence and explanatory power than the claims made by religions. I guess I exclude those obscure religions that postulate a multiverse since I know someone will bring up some infinitesimal religion that supports the idea of a multiverse. Anyways, here are several arguments:
1. This first argument is by no means the main justification here, but it should be noted that as technology has advanced, so too has our...
