    The scientific god model

    we know that zero and infinity have similar properties. So, the Buddhist call God zero, whereas the Abrahamic call God infinity. The two are essentially two facets of the same thing. I don't think it helps to debate whether zero is more important or infinity. I personally think that zero should...

    Q&A about Judaism

    what is Judaism? Depends upon one's perspective. When God inserted the letter H in the name of Abram and made it Abraham. It means that his stature or his writ has been expanded, and he has become the father or the leader of the entire humanity. On the other hand, if we take Judaism to be that...

    Proto-Indo-European Polytheism Reconstruction

    I think we need to go deeper than just look at some characteristics of the gods. The best text in my view is genealogy. The genealogy should be parallel. In this case I find Adam is cognate with Manu, Adam's son Indra and Vritra are cognate with Cain and Abel, their descendants, Noah and...

    What is Evidence?

    Any self-proclamation by a text that it is the final truth is obviously not acceptable. The question is what then would be the test? One possibility is to rely on the spiritual perception of the sages. But this also is not workable because the sages of different religions at different times have...

    What Was Israel's Ancient Belief?

    I never accused you. I am only talking about what I have learned from other Jews claiming. So, I am happy that you do not accept to be a chosen people. And my best wishes. Thank you.

    What Was Israel's Ancient Belief?

    God speaks of his descendants. That is not racial but it is biological. Agree entirely. God gave him the land of Canaan.

    What Was Israel's Ancient Belief?

    When I talk about chosen people, I am basically referring to the covenant of Abraham in genesis 15-17. The whole idea that God has chosen a particular people as a special status and that these people are somehow closer to God than others, is the fundamental problem of all Abrahamic religions. In...

    Abraham was Brahma or Rama?

    I don't think the insertion of letter H has anything to do with Akhenaten, but I have no idea because I don't understand, Egyptian names but I thank you for your post.

    One God or many gods

    I personally don’t believe that God is an intelligent designer. I understand that all human beings, animals and even inanimate objects have different level of consciousness as you have yourself agreed. The collective consciousness of all these living and inanimate things is God. So, God is us...

    What Was Israel's Ancient Belief?

    Oh my, at last we agreed on somethings. I also agree with you that the holy texts are not in inerrant so we need to understand the inspiration behind and then we can distil out the true message. The main problem though I think is not inerrancy, the main problem is that the holy texts themselves...

    Evolution of what?

    While it is true genesis is not a document of history, it is also true whatever written in document of genesis also matches with the life and times of Adam, Noah, Abraham and Moses. If we look with the place these persons in the Indus Valley civilizations. The basic reason why genesis is not...

    Aerial photo suggests parting of the Red Sea

    Thank you for this paper which is good. The paper mostly talks about the Exodus and biblical dates. However, I find following problems with identifying the land formation as a possible parting of the sea of the Exodus. There is no evidence of the pharaoh Garrison either side of this land bridge...

    The evolving human consciousness

    I do believe that there is a universal consciousness and when people use the word God, Allah or Brahman then they are essentially referring to this universal consciousness. I think panpsychism has the correct understanding that every living and inanimate matter has consciousness. The...

    People did not put baby in danger because of God, they put baby in basket to save it from tyrannous things.
