1) write 100 times on the blackboard "God of Theism exists." By this way you get the energy and momentum to go through the proof of God:
A) God is omniscient, so He is the perfect specialist to ask His opinion. His opinion is always true and right.
B) Ask Him, does He exist or not. He will certainly answer "Yes, the God of Theism is existent." Proof ends.
In short: The All-Knowing knows everything, and that the Omniscient exists. Therefore the Omniscient exists. Now, if this proof is not...
Is the Universe a conscious mind?
I'm not terribly fond of the notion that the universe is conscious, but I think Philip Goff makes a much more interesting than average case for that notion -- even though, in my opinion, his case suffers from some weaknesses.
But what do you think? Is the universe a conscious mind? Why or why not?
And if the universe is indeed a conscious mind, what does the universe think of @SalixIncendium's fashion sense, which some folks have perhaps justly likened...
Psalm 22 is a famous example of Christians referring back to the Hebrew Bible for messianic prophecies.
In this Psalm, we find the author lamenting that God has forsaken him and doesn't help him. That his enemies surround him, and so on...
Psalms 22:1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish?
(6-8) But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by everyone, despised by the people. All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking...
So I'd like to be able to show the sick suffering poor tortured souls that God loves them. The first obstacle is the fact that God refuses to speak up to them. God hides himself. Would a God who loves people hide himself from them and refuse to speak up and leave people tortured and confused?
The world is tortured, sick, and confused. It would be nice if there was some evidence to leave people that they can turn to God and God will protect, provide, and be faithful to his word. I pray...
Following on from the thread comparing Christianity with Buddhism (which I'm still participating in and enjoying), I thought it would be a worthwhile endeavour to engage in a comparative discussion regarding Christianity and another Dharmic religion: Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma.
Please contribute by noting any affinities or differences that you can think of between these two faiths.
To start us off, I'm going to quote from a fourth century Christian text of the patristic period - probably...

After Cain departed, Cain went into the land of Nod, on the east of Eden, and Cain's wife gave birth to Enoch.
Seeing Adam and Eve only had 3 sons, Cain,Able and Seth. So where do you suppose Cain's wife came from ?
What was the mark, that God put on Cain, in Genesis Chapter 4
In my early days of being a narrow-minded Biblist I surmised that the paths were predetermined but man had a choice. After years of Don Quixote like attempts at trying to splain otherwise, I have come to see that some people just ain't gunna understand faith. It's like they're unequiped to process it.
What say you?
Among people from all walks of life, different races, nationalities, cultures, economic circumstances, life experiences, degrees of suffering, education level, etc., there are people who sense God’s love and mercy and those who do not.
There are starving people who pray for food and who when they receive a mere morsel, see God’s hand. They sense God’s love and feel his compassion. They see a ray of heavenly light and sense the angels are near. While only a morsel, something spiritual...
