Re: Do you fear death?

This question is primarily for those here who consider themselves to be atheist or agnostic. Do you fear your own death? Do you fear the death of the ones you love? I do not fear my own death per say, as Jac3510 has so eloquently put. It saddens me that those closest to me will experience loss and ...

Re: Why is there a conflict between religion and science?

If it's not too much too ask, can we try not to refer back to your conclusions in each post? ok, so my next question. What do you mean by normal variation in reproduction? Yes,we can refer back to my conclusions.I already told you what normal variation in reproduction is.I'll just use one example t...

Re: Why is there a conflict between religion and science?

Genetics. DNA. Do Shih Tzu's have a the same genes as wolves? All species within the Canis genus, the wolf like canids, are phynogenetically closely related with 78 chromosones and can potentially interbreed. It is thought that the wolf is the most probable ancestor and closest relative to the dome...

Re: Why is there a conflict between religion and science?

What even is the conversation here? Is somebody playing devils advocate on evolution? Its pretty simple stuff really. I think dog breeds is a great example of selective breeding. But as far as natural evolution you can just take a look around yourself and look at all the different kinds of people o...

Re: Why is there a conflict between religion and science?

First question, what do you see is the same thing with dogs and cats? What is this "thing" you are speaking of. And please don't go to much into depth. I'm talking about normal variation in reproduction like with the many different dog breeds or many different cat breeds and I was trying to point o...

Re: Why is there a conflict between religion and science?

You state that you wish to be convinced, but the truth is that you wish to display your conviction. I'm just going by the evidence you gave and it shows the same thing all of the other evidence shows and that is normal variation in reproduction. I have no convinction except based on evidence. Tell ...

Re: Why is there a conflict between religion and science?

That is variation in reproduction,or evidence that God created and made life to produce after its kind it is no different than the many different dog breeds or roses, on what basis do you claim it demonstrates life evolves? Darwin insisted that the tiny variation we see in a litter of kittens could...

Re: Why is there a conflict between religion and science?

Go ahead. I want you to produce a myriad of peer reviewed articles that demonstrates life evolves instead of just normal variation in reproduction that we all observe and don't need scientists in a lab demonstrating what we already know that there is variation in reproduction such as dogs and roses...

Re: Shades of Sin

Where did such concepts originate? Why do all the religions of the world seem to embrace such things, in one way or another? That is, sin and the need to be cleansed, deal with it or have a solution of some sort to such? Are you not at least intrigued by such questions? These are not concepts my de...

Re: Shades of Sin

When we see an accident many look upon and reflect on their own mortality. The result is fear. This feeling can often overshadow the feelings of sadness for the people affected, the victims family and for the victim themselves. And one thing I noticed is that there is also a beauty to death that ev...
