This OP is about the choice of those that represent a Faith. Starting at the leader, on to the priests, and down to all those that have a appointed responsibility of guiding the followers. No matter what faith, no matter what these leaders are called. It is aimed at addressing those that have...
Fake news and untruthfulness has now become a plague on the progress of the human race.
The power of the written and spoken word by those that are supposedly to report the truth, is well known. It is used for good and is used to deceive.
The Baha'i Writings contain advice I would like to...
There are many gods in the world today. The two are elemental gods: Existing God (Jesus Christ)
and Non-existing god (but present one, satan). God is not unbeliever. God knows that God exists, and God has faith in himself.
There is expression: "John, are not existing for me." this means that...
This was inspired by the post Fictional Religions so you guys should check that out I suppose.
I was thinking about fictional religions and the thought I kept coming back to is that whether an idea appears in what we might call fiction vs what we might call scripture is...
I have been thinking about the nature of truth and religion for a bit today so I decided I would type out my thoughts and share them. Some folks won't agree with the stuff I want to say and that is of course fine.
There is a subtle difference between the idea that all religions have some...
Any argument a person of faith chooses to dissprove a True Messenger of God, is just as valid against their chosen Messenger.
So is it not then logical that we could then prove the Messengers by comparing the Attibutes?
Then in that process, those that are false, will start to become obvious...
The meaning of the existence of science is the presence of
Absolute Truth, Objective Knowledge, and Verity. The All-Knowing is Absolute Truth.
He is aware of His existence. Therefore, the existence of God
is Absolutely True and Accurate.
Would a debate follow?
Recently I have been thinking about scripture an awful lot as I have been going through various Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh scriptures. I thought it might be interesting to discuss the view I have come to embrace and see if you guys had any interesting thoughts or responses.
I think that...
Recently I have been thinking about the prolifiration of ideology and religion within the world and how various people view truth. I have studied various religious traditions and ideologies over my lifetime and what has occurred to me is that there is no one path which fits ever being...
It has been brought up that a Messenger may only be delusional when they make a claim that they bring a Message from God.
So let's tell a story of how these things unfold and in the end there is only two stances we can justly take, it is either the Truth, or it is false and delusional. I will...
Good Vs. Evil,
Truth Vs. Lie,
are religious terms.
Thus, an atheist has become free from these old traditional ways of thinking.
Atheist: "there are very Good atheists."
So, now we all agree, that there is Absolute Evil and Absolute Good in this world?
Atheist: "No, we don't."
So, there is...
My name is Matthew:
How many people on this board would say that they care about truth?
What are some factors that determines what is able to decide what is being said is truth or not?
Where in the world could we get a determinate to decide what is the truth or not?
In this world...
Do they follow it?
For about a century, Jehovah's Witnesses were known as Bible students.
It was not a name they gave themselves, but as they were keen students of the Bible, the name was stuck on them. Though they called themselves Christians.
Over time, they accepted that they could be...
"When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask Him any more questions." Mark 12:34 NIV
What is knowledge?
Knowledge is what we know.
What means "to know"?
To know is to have knowledge.

MY IDEA FOR MAKING NATURAL THEOLOGY:
The Absolute Truth, e.g. 2+2=4, can not be false. So, the falsifiability criterion is unscientific.
A nihilist can say: "the Absolute Truth is only in mathematics, not in physics nor elsewhere."
I am replying, that the humankind...
Berlin demonstration and Corona
Below is my personal opinion. I can be wrong of course (I hope not), but this time I will know very soon.
(Some might see this as conspiracy. I would have placed it in "Conspiracy sub forum" if there was one)
Edit: Main point in this OP:
"Why did German...
Speak Your Truth
Below video is ca. 30 minutes, and I had many times the thought "this feels good what she says here". Personally I think it makes sense what she says. Her frequency idea reminds me of the "aura" concept. I think that her way of describing things are easy to understand, and...
The Best Argument Against the Non-Existence of God
Some Advaita definitions I once read:
1: Truth = that what does not change
2: God = that what does not change
Advaita claims that only God exists (as in real), all else is subject to change (maya), hence it is not the Truth
What are your...
Truth or Dare: Why posting on RF?
Today I thought "what is the real reason I post on RF?"
a) Improve myself
b) Improve others
Kind of tricky these 2
Why I want to improve myself?
Why I want to improve others?
When does "try to help others" changes into "belittle the other"?
When does "try to...
What is the difference between a claim, a fact and evidence?
I recently encountered someone online who said that there is no evidence for Covid-19 because anybody can say anything in interviews, even on youtube, and scientists can claim anything they wish. There are only claims of Covid-19...
