Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Exactly, and without survival, we are nothing. That benefit is why we will always have a variety of thinking systems, theologies as well as secular philosophical schools of thought. We should disrespect the savage god theologies though. They are garbage. Regards DL Everything the human person stand...

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

Only those who are faultless have the right to pass judgment upon others (implying that no one is faultless and that, therefore, no one has such a right to pass judgment). The judgment day is always now, instant karma. Karma is victim blaming to the astute. As to judging/testing concepts. You judge...

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

What does the word 'sin' even mean to the people here in this thread? Discover and/or learn, and understand, what the word 'sin' ACTUALLY refers to, then the answer to the question, 'Who is responsible for the original sin?' can become known, agreed upon, and accepted. Agreed upon?? Not likely. Wan...

Re: Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country?

Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country? Our first allegiance is to our countries. Our laws and political leanings are moving us towards laïcité, a rather rigid form of the best religious freedoms/ideology, quirky or not, for all. Keep it to yourself will ...

Re: Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country?

Yeah...that's working out well in China, and in Iran, and in Saudi, and in Africa, just as it has worked so very well in all the Communist countries. Indeed. Things are looking up world wide, especially China. It depends. They're doing very well economically, since they went Red Capitalist, it's tr...

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

Evil persuaded Eve to doubt the word of the creator, that she was to obey. Doubt caused a sinful act, eating the forbidden fruit. Is not choice the consequence of doubt? Even if correct, which you are not, you would have to ignore that the bible says that Eve was deceived while Adam was not and tha...

Re: Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country?

Yet the country is what gives and protects all free people's rights enough to choose which law to follow. Which is completely irrelevant to the fact that religious folks feel their allegiance is to their god(s) above all else. You do recognize, I hope, that we are talking of a genocidal slave wanti...

Re: Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country?

Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country? Our first allegiance is to our countries. It is? What does that mean? Should I be loyal to my country when it goes against my morality? What position does that entail, for example, during the Vietnam war? Would it e...

Re: Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country?

Are religions that preach inequality for women and gays, traitors to their country? Which "country"? In a place like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan or Iran, they might be the most loyal to their country. Point to your short list. Secular laws are slowly civilizing all the more backwards religions. I do wha...
