Re: is your religion unique?

has anybody ever created their own religion? Everybody who is religious creates their own religion. It is no coincidence that all gods think exactly the same as the people who believe in them. "Some" actually utter that their God is the same as the other people's God and yet "some" utter that their...

Re: Does it turn you on...

Aren't they without Human Rights (UDHR)? That is, they do not enforce human rights as declared by UDHR? And their fledgling democracy has some distance to go until modernity... I want to have something philosophically interesting from them before "I dive in". :) However, I find Ai Weiwei worth the i...

Re: Is birth prevention a form of genocide?

Clearly you're not killing individuals. Yet one group can wipe out another group from the face of the Earth. Would you regard this as genocide?

Re: A definition of Gd, and some implications that follow

Well, well, the Bible says we are God's temples by our bodies so there's a short distance from us after the trial of life to rejoin God in Heaven, I guess. :D

Re: Dualism II

I happen to think that the genetic "map", the memory, the feelings (in a special way), consciousness, all come from the mind, reside, originates in the mind/soul. I think that you may be able to perceive and generally sense while in soul-form! :) Why? My usual excuses, the NDE studies and the OBE st...

Re: Simply, is Salvation the answer to the Problem of Evil?

Thanks for reply, IC! Let's face it, some people are just beyond salvation and they go to Hell. In Hell and possibly beyond, I wish not to speculate. So given the evil in the World and all the troubles it leads to, I guess we need salvation from God, to live with God in being God's temple, right? So...

Re: Suffering and the categorical imperative

For the World to become Utopia by ethical beings, there's a battle to be fought! And until this battle is won, there's suffering to be undergone! As such, the colonization of USA is one mark in history to another. We're now in the 21st century CE/AD and we should see it from here, to amend where so ...

Re: Is doing evil a necessity of life?

I disagree as nature and philosophy forces us to compete which creates victims who will think evil has come their way if they do not recognize the good in their loss. Take competition out of the human equation and we will likely go extinct. Regards DL Hah-hah-hah, DL, you mistake "victims" for beli...

Re: Human Rights but on what basis

I don't consider attacks on Human Rights (UDHR) to be credible! Your text, RWStanding, is far too short for conceiving anything alternative. For example, which Human Rights (30) are supposed to "go away" in this alternative which seems vastly Utilitaristic such that "uhhh, I am of the elevated elite...

Simply, is Salvation the answer to the Problem of Evil?

After having thought about the Problem of Evil for a longer time, I now come to think that the answer to the Problem of Evil is simply Salvation , both here on Earth, to live with God "in oneself", and in Heaven! So that's it, to live with the grace of God in the face of problems and after-life! Wha...

Not for religious people, IMO, we normally behave and long for Heaven/Nirvana/etc.
Maybe doing evil a necessity of life for Atheists who do not have the Humanist Manifesto at hand? No?

Re: Would theists find more meaning in their lives than atheists?

I consider the goal of Heaven and the deep tranquility something deeper than "collecting post stamps"! Because "collecting stamps" is as deep Atheism goes!
