Supernatural and fantasy thinking about religion. Is it good or evil?

Supernatural and fantasy thinking about religion. Is it good or evil? We can scientifically explain the supernatural itch that some allow to control their thinking. In children, this might be a good way of expanding their minds, but adults are asked to put away the things of children, which, to me, ...

Re: Can Yahweh always do what he wills, or can people thwart him?

Abram talked down the number of rightious in Saddam/Gamorra from 100 to 10. so ya some folks can change YHWH;s mind - at least one could. so they say. So the myth goes. That same myth says that once god says it, it is forever. The great judge, Yahweh, does not change his mind from innocent to guilt...

Re: Let’s chat about the atheist religion.

The 'who' is I don't know, and I don't have to know, because the knowing has always been here prior to my knowledge. I simply cannot know the answer, because I am the answer. You were born with instincts, but if you think they were not there to guide you ----- All animals on the planet use them, bu...

Re: Let’s chat about the atheist religion.

God can only exist in it's concept, as it is conceived mentally as a word. No word ever created itself, in that there is no God in the word God who created itself..just as there is no Person in the word Person, so words in effect are made of no thing, they are just pure emptiness. No one ever reall...

Re: Let’s chat about the atheist religion.

Let’s chat about the atheist religion. Believers in the mainstream god religions often denigrate and discriminate against atheists, non-believers and rival religions on moral grounds. Godless mean without a moral sense to them. God can only exist in it's concept, as it is conceived mentally as a wo...

Can Yahweh always do what he wills, or can people thwart him?

Can Yahweh always do what he wills, or can people thwart him? Scriptures seem conflicted on the answer. They show an all-powerful god whose plan and will cannot be thwarted or derailed, while at the same time indicating that he cannot do his will and that people can derail his plan to save everyone....

Does Yahweh/Jesus live by the Golden Rule?

Does Yahweh/Jesus live by the Golden Rule? Most Christians seem to think so as they say that Yahweh/Jesus can do no evil. We could look at all the commandments and laws but that might have us taking off in too many directions so I thought the Golden Rule might be a good starting point as it encompas...

Re: Let’s chat about the atheist religion.

Yes, the infected should self isolate until they feel better!! The thing is, with false negative test that are reported, people can be infected without knowing it. Err on the side of caution should be the operative thinking. If not, the so called uninfected might either get infected or infect other...

Re: Let’s chat about the atheist religion.

Why do you even put yourselves in positions of having 'opponents'. For the same reason you do. To determine who has the fittest mind. To find out if you should be trying to learn of the issue or to teach on it. There are basically only 3 reasons people post here. Preach, teach or learn. That or jus...

Re: Let’s chat about the atheist religion.

What actual definition to give and use to the words 'atheism' and 'atheist'? Stick with mine as things are getting weird otherwise. Since following an ideology is a prerequisite of religion, atheism can be considered a religion, since atheists draws on philosophical ideologies to guide ideas, behav...

[ So, will you show with explanations and/or with evidence WHY what I said here is "wrong on ALL counts"? Not likely because you are trolling, or too stupid to get anything I say.

Is it possible to discriminate and it be 'just'? If yes, then please explain, and with examples please.

Re: Let’s chat about the atheist religion.

Given the absurd thread, in which I am supposed to be part of a religion if I am an atheist, I do not exist. It is very weird when theists or other religious people want to claim that non-theists are religious about atheism. Not only is it absurd, but it's so obviously contrived. And what purpose d...

Being religious, by definition, is 'being stupid'.
Fully dissagree - and anyone that thinks that way is stoooopid -
Ditto.
