    @Bharat Jhunjhunwala and @tornbetweentwoworlds I believe people can reincarnate. What are your thoughts about reincarnation? What purposes do you think reincarnation helps with?

    Avoiding Nihilism

    You may know that my theology is syntheism. The belief that humans are creating God. And that all of us are in some ways already doing this. Ideally, you’d think because of this that I wouldn’t be a nihilist. However, negative thoughts permeate my head on a daily basis. I love being an advocate...

    Why Are You Here?

    It is a question that has been asked of me, so I start with my answer. It could be put in many ways. I always consider the roots of faith.

    Do I have to be a religious nut to post on RF?

    The Purpose of Prayer

    It was suggested in another thread by one of our Aussie members that Americans use prayer like a magic wand to cure ills, and suggested that prayer doesn't work that way. What is the purpose of prayer for you? I understand that many use it as a means of worship and reverence, but does prayer...

    Does Life Require Purpose?

    There have been a couple of threads created recently asking about purpose. In one, I asked views and opinions about the purpose of our physical existence, and in another a poster asked about the purpose of reincarnation, if it does indeed exist. It seems to me that many seek some sort of...
