I am finding that I cannot communicate with theists here, the same pattern I have experienced elsewhere. We are simply so different that discussion is all but impossible. What am i doing wrong? Logic does not move these people, I have no other way of thinking. So we are at an impasse. How can I talk to these people in terms they will understand? It is frustrating because I wish to understand religious belief and religious people, if I am to judge religion and religious belief fairly and to...
Here below is the quote from the fundamental research article in
Some Thoughts on Faith and Knowledge (Ходящий По Лжи) / Проза.ру
The criterion of scientific theory excludes the possibility of True Theory:
"Scientist must be able to refute any theory." The scientist is pooled into the destruction of the foundations and effects. The most convenient "philosophy" hereby is the false atheism. The adjective "false" describes the fact, what the sentence of atheism "No God" is proven wrong....

Whatever, small steps perhaps, but something to be welcomed as far as I'm concerned.
I am someone who tries different religions like how other people try on different shoes or clothes. I think I have always wanted to feel not only apart of something, but believe in something... higher than myself. I'm not sure where I want to go, what I want to do. But I do know one thing. I do want to believe in a higher power, but I don't know who/what to believe in. Nothing has resonated with me. I was born into a Methodist family, and I had gone to church for a while. Then my family...
As I see it, life is the education of God's children. As we learn, grow and come to understand, our intelligence will discover the best choices. Evil will no longer be a viable choice simply because it's results are not the best.
There is so much to learn. It could never be accomplished in one lifetime. After eons of lives when one acquires so much knowledge and understanding will rules really be necessary? I think not.
People love to control. That's why rules and laws exist in the first...
