    What if it was created by God to evolve?

    What if it was created by God to evolve? Does this mean we are all correct?

    Why would somebody willingly become a Satanist?

    Satan tempted Jesus to eat rocks. That is what a 3-year old tries to do to their parents. Like what kind of mindset do Satanists have? I just don't see it. Why do Satanists believe that Satan is better in their view to God? Why do many, but not all, Satanists get absurd amounts of tattoos and...

    Taken me a lifetime to believe as I do and I still have questions

    Why do Christians primarily follow Jesus instead of god? While god may be in the house, most prayers and worship services praise the good news of Jesus from the new testament. During my days at church I felt praying to Jesus was a waste of time there praying to god made better sense to me...

    the Universe, including life, was designed (and created) by a creator...

    I am a 63-year-old agnostic theist who is in the process of deconstructing from Christianity. Although no human has (yet) proven or disproven that God exists, I think that it's more likely than not that the Universe, including life, was designed (and created) by a creator as opposed to...

    Poll: Basic Theology

    Theism/Atheism - Belief in God axis. Gnosticism/Agnosticism - Knowledge of God axis. Pistevism/Apistevism - Faith in God axis. I'm really having fun making these polls in Interfaith and poking at the brains here in RF. Similar to my theology poll, this poll doesn't name specific theological...

    I recently had said that monotheism is a contradiction because it is impossible to not be of the Universe yet be involved in it in so many ways. That's probably not true. I mean, look at the Internet. I'm interacting with all of you despite not being in your house. But exactly what does God do...

    Poll: Which Came First?

    This topic probably comes up often on these forums, but I'm including a poll with multiple options and also putting this in debates, so there's that. The question on my mind is: Which came first, God or existence? By existence I don't mean the Universe. Doing some extrapolating, I would argue...

    Religious Authority and Authority in General

    Howdy! Recently I have been going through the David Graeber book called debt. It’s pretty neat and helped me put into words a few things that I believed but had not exactly articulated. It’s interesting to note for instance how debt and authority sort of comingle. What I realized is I simply...

    In Your Religion, Culture, Language, etc. - What is a God "Exactly?"

    A few simple questions. Please provide as much detail as possible. In your religion, what "exactly" is a god? (in the singular) In your culture what qualities allow something to be called a god? In your culture are there things that can't be called a god? If so, why? In your language what is...

    Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord, Syncretism and relationship

    Howdy ho! At this point I may as well call myself Syncretism cat. Recently I was meditating and praying as is my usual activity. Sometimes I mix up which form of God I focus on though usually it is Kali, Shiva, Waheguru etc. This time I decided to use Christ as the center focus and use the...

    Great thing about Messengers and Prophecy

    What I think is great, is how combining prophecy paints a bigger picture. I see that each of the prophesies from the many faith sources, taken only by themselves can be like the Blind men and the Elephant metaphor. So if we grab all God given prophesies, inclusive of some indigenous prophecies...

    Interesting Experience and Thoughts about Interconnection

    So It's been a little while since I posted on these forums but I have been continuing my practice. Yesterday I was doing my normal ritual worship and meditation. I offered a banana to Ma Kali then bowed down so my head touched the floor. When my head touched the floor I was immediately filled...

    When Love is the Light

    There is no darkness. I say Love always wins in the end. No matter how much darkness may be imputed toward the light, it is not able to overcome the light. I see Faith is the light of this world, which is currently being imputed with darkness. Those that impute, are not able to overcome the...

    Poll: Divine Immutability

    As someone who is part of Earthseed and its website literally being God is Change it's hard for me to wrap my head around a God that doesn't change. Of course, it is standard Christian practice that God doesn't change, and has what they call 'divine immutability'. I think all pantheists and...

    Poll: Syncretism in Pantheism

    Pantheism seems to be a pretty easy concept to understand, yet, I would argue that most people who self-identify as pantheist, panentheist, pandeist, or panendeist also subscribe to some amount of other theology or religion. In the strictest sense possible I consider myself panendeist, as in...

    Examining the evidence there is of God

    This OP is for All people of all Faiths that believe in God. What evidence do you have of God? What logic and reasons have you used in determining the proofs and truths you subsequently embraced from the examination of that evidence? The purpose of this OP needs to be embraced if you are to...

    The Difference Between a Synverse and Nature

    This is going to be a thought experiment and honestly I'm not sure what my final conclusion will be. So, in accordance to the thread title, I would like to explain the difference between a synverse and nature. According to how I define a synverse, a synverse is any point in which creation...

    The Difference Between Buddhism and Atheism

    I've seen a lot of posts by people who at first glance seem to be completely anti-religion and anti-theist, or at least agnostic atheist, only to find out from their religious bio that they self-identify as Buddhist instead. I know there is some underlying spirituality in Buddhism, such as...
