What would you think of a business that peddles products that it cannot demonstrate that it can deliver? A scam, right?
Religions strike me as entirely analogous, peddling afterlives, invisible deities, uninvestigatable swarms of saints, angels, spirits etc. Requests for verification are met with "have faith", "trust me", "the more absurd it is, the more it must be true", etc, all marks of the con artist.
I suppose that the first prehistoric tribesman who found that he could escape the...
In the faith realm, the satan is the personalized evil. That is definition of satan.
So, the satanists must be illegal.
The satanism does not worship the God, so it is not the Religion.
FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS POLL please understand the normal, typical definition of whatever you put in the poll (you can change your vote if you make a mistake). For example if you believe in a traditional monotheistic deity please don't put transtheism which is way different from theism, and if you are a regular atheist please don't put nontheist (which is meant for someone who's not an atheist but also not a theist or deist and wouldn't fit under transtheism). Same goes for putting theism...
I'm conservative, or traditionalist(fundamentalist is too reactionary for me). Nothings going to change that. But I need a few things cleared up.
1: If Hell doesn't exist, where did Hitler, bin Laden, and Vlad the Impaler go? If a person lives good a morally his entire life, don't you think he or she would get upset that those three are there?
2: I know you emphasis love and forgiveness, a true christian should. However, you're stepping back from the laws makes me feel like you have some...
How an atheist can believe in God
(and save face doing it)
For those that don't want to read the long version (in blue bold) MrMrM has mercy on you! I have condensed the OT down to a paragraph. Please if you have a question make sure I haven't covered it in the long version? Is it probable or possible that a race of beings so advanced they created this universe? In several articles scientists have speculated that we humans will learn to exist in an non-corporal body that never dies will...
An unfortunate part of organized society is that a few of its members will have their lives ended unnaturally by others. Not every killing is the same as another, and secular society provides for circumstances where it is more acceptable to kill another, or at least, won't punish as severely. Those might include war, to defend oneself from an attacker or to avenge an injustice. As there are several thousand killings occurring each day, it is entirely possible, even likely that many of the...
Is becoming old and die was good for the species?
Death is good for earth and for more species to come which is a sign that someone
has planned for it, living for some years and giving birth for new comers.
What do you think? was it just a coincidence or a programmed death mechanism?
Hi there. I'm actually into world building (you basically create a fictional world. Think middle earth, forgetten realms, star wars, oceania, etc etc.). I am building a small religion in one of these fake nations, and so I was like "they need a symbol". I want this symbol to be unique to itself, so nothing from Earth really (not copying something here already).
The things I must include are incorporating the number 5 (either as the number itself, or a representation of 5 things) and I...
