    Will Artificial Intelligence Make Artificial Religions?

    Will Artificial Intelligence Make Artificial Religions? AI already has the capacity to copy and learn from human made data. Could it be possible that AI makes fake or a synthetic blend of human religions to create an artificially made religion by the AI itself?

    Modern Sciences Helps Promote Religions.

    Power of Relics

    Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and many other religions have relics. Sometime their small trinkets spanning into weapons and even human body part remains or full bodies. It is fascinating to me that so many people would treasure these relics for so long. It really shows how...

    Does having a religion make you a better person?

    Some people might believe that the religious are supreme to the non-religious while the non-religious might seem themselves as supreme to the religious. o_O

    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...

    Sex and Religion

    As I mentioned recently, the only people I hear claiming that people routinely confuse sex and love are people who belong to religion with sanctions against sex outside of marriage.

    If there is no god. What's the purpose of this life?

    I believe Human beings were created, for way more than working a 9-5, raising a family, then dying. What are your thoughts?

    Unity within Religious Groups

    The Baha'i Faith is a very interesting religion. It allows its members to do virtually anything they want and remain a Baha'i. If you are gay and want to have a gay marriage, you cannot have a gay Baha'i marriage, but you can get married the secular way if your government permits it. There's a...

    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...

    Poll: DIR Forums

    There is a thread in the intro forum here that asks which religion you are. I find several issues with that poll. It focuses on established religions and nearly 50% of people said either nonreligious or other, myself included. The DIR forums have a broader reach overall and pretty much everybody...

    Poll: Religious Rituals

    According to 25% of people from Religious Forums, rites and rituals are one of the most important parts of their religious practice. So, I'm making a thread dedicated to that exact premise. Listed above is nine very general religious rituals that are performed by many different religions...

    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: Openness to Change

    Everybody and every thing changes. In fact, in Earthseed, God is change. However, some people are more willing to change their spiritual and religious beliefs than others. For some people, the religion they were raised in is the religion they stick to their entire lives. For others, religion is...

    Shopping for Religion

    I was chatting with Chat GPT today. I asked it several questions about theology. First, I posed it the question: "what religions believe we are creating God?" It didn't list religions but rather the theologies posed in the ideas of panentheism and the cumulative concept known has process...

    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...

    Poll: Inside Looking Out vs Outside Looking In Regarding Religion

    This thread was inspired by this post I wrote last night. “From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. And from the inside looking out, you can't explain it." This is a famous quote I'm sure some of you have heard before. I'm curious as to if most people here view themselves on the...
