    Please tell me you're joking.

    Is the evolutionary doctrine a racist doctrine?

    What's your source for that quote? Because describing something as "ape-like" is problematic since humans are apes.

    Is the evolutionary doctrine a racist doctrine?

    Pedant here. Human beings are apes. There are 4 genera of apes of which the genus Homo is one.

    Did Jesus Christ Actually Exist?

    The Gospels were not written by eye witnesses, and as any fisherman will tell you a minnow can become a whale in the re-telling.

    Understanding the holy scriptures is impossible unless God gives you the interpretation

    I don't know if this explains anything but it's a pretty picture

    Understanding the holy scriptures is impossible unless God gives you the interpretation

    I thought I was a Christian but it was studying the Bible t.hat led me to Agnostic Atheism. The partisan nature of the Old Testament and the absurdity of it all among other things.I didn't lose my faith by reading but by thinking.

    Bible contradictions

    Over two thousand years I would say that would be unlikely. However the fact that same contradictions are raised repeatedly suggests that they have not been addressed convincingly

    “Hindus fall because they worship lesser gods.” Abrahamics are trampling Hindus. Can you help me understand?

    Not meaning to be difficuly, but what is meant by loss of soul of a civilization? A rise in lawlessness, a drop in church attendance, questioning of authority.? These things are and have been occurring worldwide for hundreds if not thousands of years

    The Four Dirty Secrets Against Darwin Evolution

    The goal is to get off the wheel. The Bodhisattva vow is to help others get off the wheel of Samsara

    If Christ wasn't the messiah, what was he?

    Such a simple statement opens up a field of discussion. Reading just the gospel of Mark we can take the adoptionist view. Just as Adam was a son of God so are we all. Jesus was chosen at his baptism to be "The beloved Son in whom I am well pleased", to be a figure to be emulated and later act as...

    Theists: What would a godless universe look like?

    I have said in other threads that the atheist position is that we do not believe god(s) exist not we make the claim that god(s) do not exist. The burden of proof thus falls to the theist to show god in the vast unknown universe.

    The Four Dirty Secrets Against Darwin Evolution

    I question "fulfilled prophecy". In many cases the prophecy is made after the fact, is so vague and general it could be fulfilled by any event, or people actively seek to fulfill the prophecy.

    The Education of Jesus VS Lucifer and The Morning Star Venus

    Is Phosphorus cognate or in anyway related to Prometheus? The iconography, carrying a torch, is similar.

    The Four Dirty Secrets Against Darwin Evolution

    If the Creator, God for want of a better term, was perfect and entire unto himself, what was his motivation to create the universe? He lacked nothing and had no need to fulfill, so creation was unnecessary. So, as you say, the fundamental question (of Life, the Universe and Everything) is : Why?

    The Four Dirty Secrets Against Darwin Evolution

    Do you not believe that leprechauns exist or do you believe that leprechauns don't exist. Two very different propositions

    The Four Dirty Secrets Against Darwin Evolution

    Exactly what I said. Two propositions; a. I do not believe that god(s) exist. b. I believe that god(s) do not exist. Seemingly similar but very different. Of course there are many nuanced views between and beyond these two.
