Re: John Wesley's theology

1. Atheist's here are also participants and we each have our own beliefs some of which we are passionate about and we have different Atheist's who have different backgrounds. You've probably already identified those who are Atheist. We're volunteers and some of us have been on this board for many y...

Re: Dr. Jack Szostak abiogenesis video

I believe that reality is relative to power. And perhaps to an Absolute Will, it is Entirely relative. To most human begins however, changing the world is an utterly futile endeavour, instead they must try and be useful in other faculties. Most people will enjoy life if you pay attention to them and...

This one seems true. I would give it a chance, but even if it were true there would only be more questions to ask.

Re: Dr. Jack Szostak abiogenesis video

I do it for myself friend, but for my team. The people who I consider to me as team are Human beings. We are legion, we are many, we are one Even in our differences we can strive towards a common goal, I will fight for whoever is downtrodden, even if it means fighting for people who are considered b...

Some people Love labels, some wish to live a unconstrained life. I am a member of the latter group. If "Freethinking" leads to freedom, then what is the problem?

Re: What makes the bible any different than other old storie

all other ancient story texts are false? Excuse me? There are just too many things that naturalism cannot account for such as knowledge, Forget knowledge, What are the right questions. Is there something Above or Beyond Nature or Both or none at all? I think a lot of people Who understand Human nat...

Re: Man's guilt, before God.

Your post and your status of "Christian" are contradictory, if your post is indeed what you believe. Truth is relative to the will of something far beyond a single human being, Human beings are at the same time incredibly complex or quite simple. I would prefer to instead of thinking of myself as o...

Re: If God is all-knowing...

With that in mind, do you really think he's going to submit people to eternal, unspeakable horror and pain for being exactly as they were made to be? No, because god is Not Evil, vindictive or hurtful. I believe that given enough time any person can repent, change, evolve,reform,differ or at least ...

Re: Dr. Jack Szostak abiogenesis video

Sure abiogenesis is possible, but why is it possible? Why does God Have to be alive, for life to come from him? I think the question you should ask is, did god sacrifice everything for everyone or nothing for noone? It would be funny if there was atheists out there who believed the former and not th...

Re: Man's guilt, before God.

Who is Adam. If there is No Adam, then who Is Jesus? Why does Adam have to be a real person? I prefer to think positive, men aren't corrupt, if they are pure. If Adam is simply a Metaphor for Everyman then the story makes a lot more sense than if it is about a real person who actually existed. Genes...

Re: "Space impact 'saved Christianity'"

most thing's are not coincidences, most things happen for a reason. Well apart from quantum physics where cause can come AFTER effect, but hey that takes ages to understand.

Re: Molinism discussion

I think that people should be free to do what they feel is just. So anything that helps fellow man is good, anything that destroys other human beings is bad. Thats why the amount of money spent on US military alone is a utterly staggering figure to my imagination, its just crazy that they must spend...

Re: Question about flat earth

I would prefer to think of any mention of the "circle of the earth" or "four corners" or a flat earth as just the impression of popular culture at the time, it is a myth that all people from the past believed the earth was flat. Educated people knew(the ancient greeks?) with certainty based on actua...
