Re: Virgin Birth Myths

And also as Greta has mentioned the idea of virgin birth is not exclusive to Christianity. And it was actually a borrowed concept passed down through the cultures. Since such ideas did not exist in isolation to each other. But science trumps mythology. And if Jesus existed he definitely had a biolog...

Re: Virgin Birth Myths

I want someone else to disturb the peace with the virgin birth question by proposing a reasonable explanation The simplest most reasonable explanation is that at the time the Hebrew translation of virgin was young woman But the only people who find it reasonable are secularists. People who feel the...

Re: Why ask unanswerable questions?

Knowledge increases over time and so what may be unanswerable now may not be so in the future
Some questions are truly unanswerable but whether they are known to be or not is something else

Re: ~ LETTING GO ~

I let go by simply becoming more detached over time which brings me peace of mind
I know I am only passing through this existence so try not to hold on to it too tightly

Re: Virgin Birth Myths

There is no you to stop anything happening - the you is the happening here This to me is the simplest clarification of everything that you have been trying to say. Now I do not accept it even though I have tried to but do at least understand it. I know this is a truth personal to you and you are no...

Re: Which is better: social media or forums?

I prefer forums to social media just because the quality of discourse is better on them

Re: Relativity?

A body of knowledge incorporating facts and laws that has been subject to the most rigorous examination possible I thought a theory was more like a presumption of what the world might be like AND WAS open to future rigorous examinations possible The way you have written it here are you proposing th...

Re: Social Injustice Warrior

Comparing rejection you experience to real abuse is just ridiculous. You are so desperate for love you cannot be rational about this al...
