I want a little statistics on the number of people who belong to religions, are either theistic and non-theistic type, and accept evolution as the explanation that explain biodiversity, natural selection and mutations (or any other evolutionary mechanisms).
This statistics will show to the creationists that they shouldn't generalised evolution are only accepted by atheists and agnostics.
So this poll is not for non-religious atheists or agnostics. So I would ask atheists to refrain from...
Can you, as a Christian, forgive satan?
I liken this to charity without reservations. If you are only giving charity (asking forgiveness) for those who will not spend your money on alcohol (those who do not know what they've done), that's not charity.
If you are being a sacrifice to Christ and acting in charity, what is it between you and satan that satan doesn't earn your respect regardless of how he feels about it?
In your religion, do you have distinct beliefs about what happens in the afterlife?
For example, some people say we become mere consciousness. If you were to distinctively describe that, what does that mean?
Others say we will become back with oneness or with everything. Although I understand this, if you were to explain it to those who do not, what would distinctively describe that as an "afterlife belief"?
I have a distinct and very short view of the afterlife. We live, we our bodies...
"The original rock where Jesus Christ is traditionally believed to have been buried in Jerusalem has been exposed to the light of day for the first time in centuries.

During a conservation project to shore up the shrine surrounding the tomb, a team from the National...

I love etymology with how words and names are so interconnected. I love to trace words back to their origins and today was no different as I was researching the word "clade". One thing led to another and I was hit with the etymology of cladogenetics. It was like watching that baseball getting bigger and bigger until it suddenly hit me. The basis of evolution, genetics is derived from genesis.
Now let me make one thing clear. I have always believed in both God and evolution. I don't see...
Is it easier to see the Bad in People rather than the Good???? Has religion trained us to do just that????
I have been on a journey lately to discover a religion I connect with. After much general research on many different religions I have found that Hinduism is a religion I would like to begin to practice. However I am slightly overwhelmed with just how much information comes along with this religion and I was curious if anybody who also commits Hindu practice had any pointers on where I should begin my journey.
Thank you in advance for anybody with advice.
I would also like to add that I...
Looking at the statistics, the answer seems to be no. But, many people are abandoning religion. Tell me, what do you think it will look like?
