Re: Can you understand the logic of Universality, in terms of all of us ending in heaven?

Can you understand the logic of Universality, in terms of all of us ending in heaven? Hell is obviously an invention of the church. Universalists Gnostic Christianity and other Universalist Abrahamic cults do not see God as a loser of the souls he calls the light of the world. The light of the worl...

Re: Which physics theory is hardest to believe?

The Higgs Boson is not credible, I think. That one certain mass, 125 GeV, is somehow "magically" supposed to explain all other mass... Funny! Weird! :shock: The string theory, M-theory, or any other, also seems incoherent, but more studies remain. I'm not there yet though I'm being led by a certain ...

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!
