Re: What makes a person atheist?

Hi all, I copied a piece of our dalog to my older friend and I think it is interesting to put his reaction here. (Our statements are in quotes his ones are in simple words.) 1. I am thinking about what such an atheist should do. Should he say: "Well God, I do not know if you exist, but rather I'm g...

Re: Complexity of life

Thanks for breaking it down, but neither side is jumping for joy because the article is not saying anything important, nothing is really substantiated. This article is just added fluff in a large heap of over-hyped 'intelligence' in support of evolution. The intentions of the study were to find a be...

Re: What makes a person atheist?

The soul is not a material goverened by the laws of our universe, it is a consciousness. So, the soul maybe be influenced by psycho-drugs? Can you elaborate on what you mean by 'influened'? Accepting that our soul is both body and mind, it follows that what we do to our body effects our soul.

Re: Spiritual Encounters

I'm a little skeptical as well. I believe in miracles. I just wish people were a little more private about their spiritual encounter until every other possible explanation was ruled out by authorities other than themselves.

Re: I need answers : (

The bible is NOT all to be take literal simply because NOT ALL of it is literal. Are there errors in the bible? Are there contridictions? Well, to be honest, without know specifics its hard to comment one way or another but I have found that the vast majority of errors and contridictions that most ...

Re: What makes a person atheist?

In our world, the soul is both body and spirit, brain and mind. Just like no two people have the same genotype, no two people have the same soul. The soul is the distinctive capacity of each human to commit altruistic acts and acts of love. We are not just living to survive and reproduce. We are con...

Re: Christopher Hitchens response?

While I admit this guy is intelligent and entertaining to listen to, his arguement is fallacious. First he argues that God didn’t appear when there were horrible things happening in the world and then he argues that the people he chose to appear to were experiencing the most harship.

Re: Just blank.....

I just thought of something else... I forget where I heard this, but supposedly 90% of life is just showing up. If you are unmotivated, maybe think about joining some clubs or volunteering your time. You may go to the meetings feeling crummy, but just being there will get your mind off of whatever i...

Re: Just blank.....

Hi Murray, I have experience with depression too. I know exactly how you feel - a lot of people go through it, so you shouldn't feel alone or ashamed. Sometimes it is a chemical imbalance and sometimes it is a state of mind. You feel lost, but you shouldn't. There are many resources to help those af...

Re: Losing Faith

Sorry, please forget the troll remark.

But can you think of any man with "miraculous powers" who was able to rise from the [dead].

Re: Losing Faith

You are trolling - look it up. Jesus rose from the dead. Historically, this fact is irrefutable.

Re: Losing Faith

You sort of remind me of someone. But that is besides the point. I don't think you are trolling here (ok, maybe a little). Correct me if I am wrong, but I really think you are being honest. Don't forget you came here. What led you here? What keeps you coming back? Is it the thrill of the attention y...

I feel divine revelation every day - from the beauty of the view, to the laughter of a child, to the answers of my prayers, etc.

Re: Complexity of life

Not sure if DNA here is being 'explained' by evolutionary processes, but if it is then this would be circular reasoning since, as I understand it, evolution requires DNA as a point of heredity in order to occur. Yeah. That's my point. The article never addresses DNA. As you put it, "evolution requi...

Re: YouTube...

I realize I didn’t address what is good about Youtube, besides the obvious sharing of ideas and community forming interactions, however slanted and unfairly presented. First and foremost Youtube is a great place to exhibit creative works, i.e. music, art, comedic talent, abilities in animation. Also...
