    Is Jesus the Jewish messiah?

    Oh, they knew He was the Messiah. It was just that He was not the top-of-the-world kind of Saviour that they desired. He was an embarrassment to the Jewish religious leadership. Isaiah 53 (New International Version, ©2010) Isaiah 53 1 Who has believed our message and to whom...

    born again?

    John 3:1-10 (King James Version) 1There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him...

    why did jesus body disappear...

    This sermon by Peter, 52 days after the crucifixion of Christ, on the Day of Pentecost when Jews from every country gathered in Jerusalem, tells us why Jesus' body had to be delivered up. I have not found a crucial reason why our physical body must be entact enough to be delivered up. It...

    Should we expect secular evidence of Jesus existence?

    I would say the Shroud of Turin is the physical evidence that Jesus existed and in fact was resurrected. The Russian version of the Josephus quote is also extremely powerful circumstantial secular evidence for His existence. It is too bad that the general population of the people of that...

    Why should We Be Good? : Salvation and Paradise

    "If we act in accord with the natural values, we’ll be one step closer to making our world a paradise." [Enoughie post #1] I believe that if this were true, we would have had Paradise a long time ago. If there wasn't a negative supernatual force influencing mankind, then perhaps...

    Logic won't allow it... Moral law must exist, if we appeal to a standard of "better" for humanity.

    Humanity recognizes 3/4 (if not more) the same morality- what is morally good and what is morally bad. The militant Atheist argued for years that morality was (is) man-made and is used for social cohesiveness. Over the last few years though, secularists have been trying to prove that...

    How did religion start?

    Religion, more than likely, started out with primative man being terrified by thunderstorms, earthquakes, and volcaic eruptions. He sought to appease these angry things lest he be destroyed by them. As mankind evolved, he became more aware of morality and spirituality. His more evolved...

    What is the best argument for an atheist?

    Copernicus, Your #1 about some part of us carrying our consciousness outside the brain after it has been declared medically dead, has been proven to be incorrect. Recently, scientists have discovered the most minute particles exiting the brain after it had just showed no electrical...

    What is the best argument for an atheist?

    The strongest argument for Atheism is emotional and physical pain. That if God truly existed 'physical evil' such as killer storms, earthquakes, etc., would not exist. Our loved ones would never get sick and die. No one would get killed and eaten by any animal or reptile. Spiders and...

    Is morality unique to humans?

    Is morality unique to humans? No, morality is not a 'human only' trait. There is evidence that apes are the next closest of the animal species to have a great amount of morality, then follow the chimps and next the monkeys. The questions that the Biologists, Anthropologists, and...

    do morals evolve or... If our morality comes from our earliest primate ancestors via Evolution, then eventually during this great study between Biologists, Anthropologists, and Philosophers, I think a Creator will have to be implied. Wait and see...

    do morals evolve or...

    I think that there does exist a moral/spiritual 'standard' that is innate in mankind. For instance, there exists a universal moral standard that murder and stealing are morally wrong. We prefer to qualify these however. Stealing (on the face of it) is morally wrong, but, if someone is...

    do morals evolve or...

    Without a moral objective standard, we cannot say that slavery was ever, is ever, or ever will be, morally wrong for everyone. We can only say that it violates my personal moral standard. Or to me it's morally wrong. Or I think that is morally wrong. Since militant unbelievers claim...

    Why the Jesus Myth is illogical.

    Dirty Penguin, I probably should have tried to come to a point we both agreed on that if Jesus truly is our Advocate, that he would wish for us to have our nature changed from carnal...to Spiritual. That He would not want a bunch of carnal people trying to fake themselves and others into...

    The idea of evil, being the ability to know of both good and evil...

    The Bible teaches that moral evil is the result of going against God's nature. This would involve even one's thought process. If this supernatural being (what Webster's dictionary calls evil- cosmic evil force... Evil) called Satan did not exist, humanity would function as it should not as...

    Why the Jesus Myth is illogical.

    Let's be objective. Even if the Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmuds were written in the 2nd century, it makes no difference. The information passed down to these Jewish writers from their predecessors confirms that Jesus did exist. As for the Shroud of Turin, it has never been proven to be...

    Why the Jesus Myth is illogical.

    True. Also the best way to tell if Jesus was for real is to look at what the ancient Jewish writers said of Him. When we look into the Talmud, be it the Jerusalem or Babylonian, we notice that it was not these writers practice to include dates. It was their practice to attack indirectly...

    Your Opinion Please

    It is historical fact that we can have moral and thriving societies...temporarlly. Most of them end due to leaders believing that they do not have to be accountable to the supreme deity. Only to the people that may never know how he or she has secretly taken advantage of them.

    Define the man...Jesus

    "Define the man...Jesus" The ancient Jew's opinion of Him was that He was a sorcerer (magical powers learned in Egypt) that led much of Israel astray. They claimed that He was paraded around for 40 days (in a community other than the holy city) and no one came to vouch for Him so He was...
