Everyone here is trying to convince you that their beliefs are the right ones.
Everyone shares their thoughts and their beliefs.
they impose their thought into others while embracing their own beliefs.
What is right and what is wrong.
Is there a God or two or three? To which God we belong?
At some point its getting confusing.
Anyway my point is, lots of thoughts, lots of ideas, lots of religions, lots of beliefs ,it feels like its diverting our attention from the one reality . We want...
Most definitions of "methodological naturalism" focus on it as a strategy whereby scientists choose to investigate matters as if they were wholly natural.

Romans 10:9-10 - That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Read More...)
The born again movement started in the 60s according to my grandmother who was born and raised up in the Baptist church. My Mom was too.
The Baptist and Community churches, nondenominational and many bible churches teach that responding to an alter...
I deconverted from Catholicism because I stopped believing in the supernatural, realized that the Bible was fallible, and discovered that I was an LGBT person. However, since my deconversion, I've had lots of internal conflict over religion. It has significantly decreased lately, but it's still there to an extent.
For the past few weeks, I've continually shifted between atheism and Christianity. Additionally, I've been reading Mere Christianity by CS Lewis and The God Delusion by Richard...
