"Some state legislators try to push Creationism into science classrooms by using coded language. For example, they say they want schools to teach the “strengths and weaknesses” of various scientific ideas. But South Carolina Republican Reps. Dwight A. Loftis and James Mikell “Mike” Burns never got that memo.
They’re the sponsors of House Bill 3826, which would inject “Creation science” into an elective comparative religions class.
In addition to the provisions of item (1), a school...
It is a problem in the world so much of certain foods are consumed - someone might say so much of nearly all foods are consumed.
In conversation regarding this the first excuse in defence of the human kind tends to be overpopulation. But to think that if people all over the world could eat much less and be well perhaps that is our fault.
Maybe we shouldn't use overpopulation as an excuse to all problems and see that overeating is against God's guidance. (In both bible and the Quran at least.)
For certain kinds of topics, arguing over facts doesn't result in a productive debate or discussion. This tends to happen when the topic relates to personal ideologies that tread into being matters of opinion rather than matters of fact. In the English language, we'll typically use "believe that" or "feel that" language when talking about ourselves or our opinions. Statements like this are understood to reflect the speaker, not the world (that is, they are not to be taken as facts). As a...
There is a thread by @Debater Slayer elsewhere discussing the literary merits of the Qur'an.
However, there is a surprisingly predictable recurrence of claims about the excellence of the Qur'an in other respects.
It is surprising because, to the best of my knowledge, they consistently turn out to be questionable at best, despite the passion and insistence of so many.
Perhaps the best example of how bizarre those claims are is the anecdote of how the Qur'an predicts, apparently...
I´ve just watched a dramatizised documentary, mostly based on Newton´s "secret boks of papers" which was opened about 200 years after his death. The papers revealed, amongst other topics, a deep interest for ancient cultures and their "World Perception".
Watch the video documentary here - "Newton the last of the Magicians" - https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1wjy2r
It is my claim that Newton didn´t grasp the full implications of the Ancient and the cultural numerous...
This was written by Christian put up on facebook by my sister all the Christian women are thrilled plum about it. So this says you should save yourself not for you or God but do it for your husbands, apparently for conservative Christian women, Jesus and Hod is not God, the man of your life is lord God master savior. Here it is. Not only that but sense this is for all young ladies, truly being single is not ok for women to be in the conservative Christian church and we owe our body's to a...
I have something for you to think about and I would like to hear your thoughts on it.
It is from the commentary of the Quran translated into english by Yusuf Ali Abdullah and it goes like this:
"Your calling upon him in times of danger shows that in the depths of your hearts you feel his need."
Some folks among us make the claim that humans would be better off without religion. I've never put much stock in such a notion for a variety of reasons. Among those is that when it comes to human happiness, there's little doubt that being actively religious is associated with greater happiness. This trend holds true not just in the United States, but worldwide (with a few exceptions):
