    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...

    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...

    Systems, Theology, No path Path

    Howdy! I just felt like sharing some thoughts. The universe started with a divine dance. Not something like a waltz but something more like salsa. Shiva and Shakti came together, and their dance created all things. There was passion, lust, adventure, thrills, horror and so many other things...

    What is Gnosticism?

    In a previous thread I explained that I'm not just part of Earthseed but a gnostic on the subject of God, explaining that I know and understand the very fundamentals on how to create it. It seems to me that my very theology of Exaltism is essentially Earthseed Gnosticism. Earthseed teaches that...

    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...

    Poll: Your Opinion

    I have to say, my opinions on religious matters has not changed at all, BUT, now that I have a place to understand and define my ideas better, I've grown spiritually because of it. This place kind of feels like a religious sandbox where I'm able to test new thoughts and ideas and slowly create...

    THEISTS ONLY: What Is the Name and Role of Your God or Gods?

    Pretty straight forward. I'll answer for myself. My God is called The Synverse. The Synverse is any medium which change can occur. The Universe is an example of a Synverse. A blank sheet of paper is an example of a Synverse. The Omniverse, or Brahman, or Ultimate Nature, is the highest degree...

    Why are Your Theological Beliefs Correct?

    This thread is inspired by this thread that I made exactly two months ago. I realize now that thread had certain errors to it that I desire to correct with this thread. First, that thread was in Interfaith Discussion, which is fine, but looking back on that thread from the very beginning there...

    What is Perfect?

    This should be quite an interesting topic to discuss. As you may know by now I believe in Exaltism, and try to raise the honor of my family and friends. It seems like every time I talk about God, however, I throw in the word perfect. Why? Because it seems like every religion admits that God is...

    When You Talk to People Unaware About Your Religion, How Do You Describe It?

    Oh boy. To answer this question for myself... Almost everybody in real life knows me as a pantheist. And the reason why I describe myself as a pantheist is because calling myself that is easier than explaining Exaltism, Syntheism, etc. "I am a pantheist and believe nature is synonymous with...

    What Type of Theologies Do You Believe In?

    The original source: Spectra of Religion and Magic Upon my research for theology spectrums I came across an article detailing eight distinct theologies abroad a wide range of differing viewpoints regarding God. This includes: transtheism, atheism, agnosticism, panentheism, pantheism...

    CHRISTIANS ONLY: Trinitarian Christianity - Monotheistic or Polytheistic?

    I am confident in saying that Christians view themselves as monotheistic. Whether they are Unitarian or trinitarian Christians, all Christians see themselves with the belief of one God. Trinitarians, which make up the vast majority of Christianity, see God in three forms: The Father, The Son and...

    What Should I Call My Beliefs?

    I very much so know what my beliefs are, and some terminology to describe them. However, I want a precise and accurate way of describing myself so when people search for it on Google they understand exactly where I fall on these issues. Syntheism literally means to create God. However, I don't...

    Proof of Omniscient Being

    Since there is no limit to study things and to the accumulation of knowledge and skills, but at the same time it is impossible to know everything, there is a being [perhaps on a distant planet] that knows absolutely everything except for one thing. For example, out of the answers to 100...

    Only a god can kill another god

    ABSTRACT: "God is Spirit" (says Bible) "The satan is evil spirit" (says Church) I simply put these two dogmas together. The result: satan is god. Any fallen angel is no longer angel, but the devil. Why? Because Absolute Good can not create Absolute Evil. Otherwise, only Absolute Evil exists...

    Fermat Last Theorem and Riemann Hypothesis theological proof

    The humankind is not yet done with Fermat's Last Theorem: Colin McLarty, ``What does it take to prove Fermat's last theorem? Grothendieck and the logic of number theory,'' Bulletin of Symbolic Logic {\bf 16}(3), 359--377 (2010). It is not yet rigorously proven! According to the definition of...

    Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika : An introduction

    Since someone asked me to write a post on this subject in another thread, I thought why not? This will be exploring the concepts of Nyāya and Vaiśeṣika as complementary systems, with a primary focus on theology. I am considering both of these darśanas to be complementary since they essentially...

    Can Calvinism survive Romans 9‽

    Romans 8:28-9:33 is often considered the strongest text of Calvinism, the view that God chooses some for salvation without free will being a factor. Basically, it's the view that no one can choose to follow God unless He predestines you to change. Near the end of the passage, Paul writes, "Does...
