In another thread I quoted a woman who said:
"Christianity is full of messages about sexuality and how that should be expressed for each gender. For example, we were told that women don’t really think about sex (I beg to differ) and that served to multiply my shame and it amplified the feeling that I was “not normal.” I had “too much of a sex drive.” We were told that boys were visually stimulated and thought about sex on a near constant basis. We were often told that “guys use love to...
These are a few different species of ducks....one can only marvel at their artistic designs and color schemes.
Who could possibly think that these just evolved and turned out like this through the process of gene mutations and adaptation? What survival advantage is there in being this beautiful?
In Christianity, there are many denominations, because there are many interpretations of the Bible out there. There is a belief among many Christians, that only the Bible is the supreme authority when it comes to a Christian's beliefs. (or should be)
I don't follow a Sola Scriptura position with my faith, as I believe faith should be experienced, and all that one believes, doesn't need to only flow from the pages of one's holy text. So, this got me to wondering...if you are of a different...
I would like to discuss existence vs non-existence and how this relates to the idea of god.
Simply define, existence is that fact or state of something having objective reality.
I think, hopefully, we can agree that there is existence so it seems like a safe place to start.
The question of existence in relation to god is whether god can be defined as an objective reality. I think if someone is to say "god exists" then it should follow that god is an objective reality.
So how does...
If yes, give the evidences.
If not, why not?

This seems to be big business on RF. How do judge??
In my opinion, a religion (mainly speaking for the 'big' ones here) should be judged by its scriptural teachings, not its adherents, for instance:
If religion A commands violence towards religion B, but none of religion A's followers commit this violence, religion A is still a religion of violence.
Conversely, if religion B commands passivity and tolerance, but all its adherents commit crimes, it is still a religion of peace.
These days there are numerous Major theories what our universe is...
In a nut shell:
1. Creationism - God, a super natural deity, created, designed and controls our universe.
2. Aliens - Our universe was created as an experiment / solution / mistake by an advanced alien specie
3. Simulation - Our universe is actually a computer simulation and we are all just an AI on some super advanced computer
4. Naturalism - All there is is Nature, Nothing more, Nothing less.
Although I Don't believe that God is real, I do find the Bible a very intriguing book.
One story I really like is the story of Job,
I heard countless explanations about the story but honestly, None of them seems satisfying or genuine.
I would love hearing your thoughts about the story, about the role of the Devil in the story and about the fact that God is presented as a deity that was "Tricked" by the Satan.
For those who are not familiar with the story, in a nut shell:
Job is a...
Or he never recited from it?!

No offense intended to any person or any religion, pleas3. Just to find truth in things. Please
In Canada (and I believe many other countries), there's a legal concept called "negligent misstatement": someone who puts themselves forward in a way that suggests his or her opinion is reliable has a special obligation to ensure that any opinions they express publicly on the area of their expertise are well-founded. For instance, if I as an engineer say that an unsafe building is structurally sound, I can find myself liable if it comes out that I had no real basis for what I was saying....
