Re: LGBTQ

So Mallz, what is it about having your views challenged that infuriates you so? Would you be happier if I was gone and people mostly sat around agreeing about everything? Would that make for a richer, more stimulating** experience for you? Oh, just verifying you're not part of the definition of 'wh...

Re: LGBTQ

Supposedly if one is born with the proclivity to have sex with animals, God intended that too and lets not forget those born with an addictive personalities. If it has a genetic component then yes, the creator of Life, the Universe, and Everything put it in the code. And yes, if he's perfect and al...

Re: What does 'having faith' mean to you?

But once empirical evidence is presented, is it really faith at that point? I like this question, it gets at what faith is. Yes, it would be faith after having empirical evidence. Faith, at least defined by the bible, is: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things ...

Welcome back Kenny! (sry for derailing, I'm done). *edit: I should have read your post before responding :lol: I guess I would like to show you how you can test Jesus; something I try to get people to do all the time (and a lot of Christians..), but for some reason the thought leaves like a leaf in ...

Re: Is being an atheist irrational?

Like the materialistic pop-metaphysic problem "where did all the material come from?" Of which the theistic counterpart is "where did God come from?". And please, please, please, do not answer that with "God is eternal." For that is just as 'unexplainable'. From my per...

Judgement after death

I'm having a hard time reconciling the finality of a souls' state after death. Does this mean a soul will not 'evolve', for lack of a better word, once it has been molded through this life (with or without Him)? As a side note, it would harmonize with why angels fall for eternity. Makes me think of ...

Re: The possibility of evil is good? Love of good vs Hate of evil

This sort of brings in the question why did God not spare the angels, but had mercy on humans. Any ideas? So far I see a few: Bc we were made in His image, we were tempted, we were on earth and not heaven, or that we were more ignorant than the angels, which ties with us being on earth and not heav...

Re: Why are people so blind?

It's important to remember that, in the time of the Bible, there was no such thing as heterosexuality or homosexuality as we understand those terms today. People just didn't define themselves in that way. I don't think the Bible says that homosexuality is wrong. There are certainly some homosexual ...

Re: The possibility of evil is good? Love of good vs Hate of evil

I can't help but suspect you misunderstood my point, though to be fair my framing it as "possibility of evil is good" doesn't help matters. That said, I didn't say there is good in evil; rather, my point was that if we assume God is omnibenevolent, and he made a choice that creates the po...

Re: The possibility of evil is good? Love of good vs Hate of evil

Where did evil come from? Where did Satan's choice to do evil come from? And why did God allow Eve to be swayed by Satan? I've been seeking answers for these questions, but for all my seeking I can only conclude that it must be that, one way or another, the potential to do evil is good. I've been w...

Re: Is God's will immutable?

I'm pretty sure we can agree that God is immutable, but is His will, also? If His will is immutable... Well, why pray then? Here I do not have prayers of thanks or prayers of praise/worship (of God, of course) in mind, but our prayers for others. Say someone you know is led astray/out of the Path a...

Re: Mediate or Immediate? God Forming Us In Our Mother's Womb

I think we as humans have been given the ability of genesis (even before we were able to reproduce). I think God gives the breathe of life at the moment of conception, because that is what has been enacted on by us. And, yet, He always knew how people would be conceived before humanities existence, ...

And you are my sister. And I have to tell you. Through my entire chaotic life, through succeeding and failing...

Re: Are we really 99 Percent the Same as Chimps?

Philip is quite right, of course. But. In this tiny corner of man's intellectual exploration, in a website called "God and Science" in a forum called "God and Science" in a thread called "Are we really 99 Percent the Same as Chimps?" I don't think it too extraneous to ...
