Criminals who have committed the most heinous crimes are executed. I would consider this to actually be a more just punishment than having the criminal endure the suffering of going insane from solitary confinement. In that same sense, wouldn't it be unjust for God to have sinners be tormented in hell for eternity rather than the concept of annihilationism where sinners are destroyed (or, in this case, executed)?
Pretty much I think the universe is heaven, but way better. Basically the law that governs the universe is love. Love is simply the strongest force in the universe. The universe was random at first. The universe came from nothing but after some time it was random. Over time the force of love took over the universe. Love is such a strong force. Love in it's very nature beats evil. Love was able to set the universe to perfection. This is why we have souls. Because we do what our souls desires...
Orthogenesis also known as orthogenetic evolution is an obsolete biological hypothesis that organisms have an innate tendency to evolve in a unilinear fashion due to some internal mechanism or "driving force".-wikipedia
Makes sense to me. As opposed to the theory that we are a random accident.
Why do we Cry ?
It doesn't lessen our actual trouble.
But, yes it does lessen the trouble of our mind.
But, what is the trouble with our mind which gets lessen after some time whereas the actual trouble still stands on the same place where it was ?

A meta-analysis of 63 studies showed a significant negative association between intelligence and religiosity. The association was stronger for college students and the general population than for participants younger than college age; it was also stronger for religious beliefs than religious behavior. For college students and the general population, means of weighted and unweighted correlations between intelligence and the strength of religious beliefs ranged from −.20 to −.25 (mean r =...
Back in 1953, the author Arthur C. Clarke wrote a very short story, entitled The Nine Billion Names of God.
I won't say much about the story here, apart from posting a link to where you can read the entire tale-- I think it is well worth study, for anyone curious about theistic ideas, regardless of where you are in the spectrum of faith or non-faith.
I would like to point out, that I think the story says as much about what it means to be human as it does about other topics, and for...
By proclaiming that Jesus is God can be considered as defamation, because Jesus himself didn't call himself God and didn't consider himself God, and none of his disciples had any inkling at all that he was God.
Idea like this can ruin the society, it can spoil the society and corrupt the society, within. If the idea is corrupt, then how can it not corrupt the nation? The statue of Jesus represents Brazil. It is the face of Brazil. What kind of face is it? Is it a legitimate face or a...
Thank God for Atheism. I genuinely, and paradoxically mean that. What I mean by this is that those that doubt and apply sharp and critical eyes to religious faiths actually, can aide religious faith in examining itself and engaging in a little housecleaning as well as redefining itself in the light of the truths that the skeptic rightly calls out. As is the case everyone responds differently to that sharp edge of doubt. Some hide from it, deny its validity, make cases against the claims in...
