Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

Does anyone here know the correct answer to this question? Thoughts? 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...

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

Original sin came from society to override the tendency of people to follow their instincts and not restrain themselves. Humans don't function on instinct but think about what they are doing or plan to do, If animals sin because of instinct, humans are doomed to evaluate their actions in the contex...

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

I like that I am separate from the genocidal satanic Christian god. The closer one get to Yahweh, the closer on gets to Satan. Not that she is real and given the bibles descriptions, she is less of a mass murderer than Yahweh. Regards DL Satan the fallen angel from heaven said I'd rather rule on ea...

Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

how do you explain inquisitions and jihads and the discrimination of homophobia and misogyny against half the worlds population...? I don't have to. I have already said that there are many false beliefs in the world, and what you point out points to that. We are agreed: false beliefs cause much mis...

Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Give me an issue in which, according to you, we DO have "conclusive" knowledge. As you say: No human knowledge is "conclusive." It's all probabilistic . That's basic epistemology, actually. Okay, so if that's your answer, how can you fault people who believe in God for believing in something for wh...

Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Every belief has its benefits. But these are merely pragmatic incentives for adhering to received belief systems whether or not the systems are true. But the only real reason to believe something is because it's true . The rest is just...well... benefits . :shock: One of the key maxims of philosoph...

I am surprised you have one, given that you do not have balls enough to call a genocidal p**** a genocidal p****.

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

Does anyone here know the correct answer to this question? Thoughts? the "original sin" theology of Catholicism is one thing and and why man is born into the state of sin in the case of man and man's Creator might have differences. first, what did God give man in His own likeness and image (note no...

Re: Why should we be blamed?

What truth? If U mean whether or not God exists, then certainly since I have gnosis - and was born into Christianity (not the stupid North American evangelist crap) - it appears, that indeed it was required - that to know God, one must 1st go via the word(s) of Christ. ..the thing about the above (...

Re: Does each person of Trinity can decide freely and independently?

The human "trinity" is body, mind and soul. Was Jesus not human? If he was, he could not neglect the needs of any of his three parts but address the needs of each without ignoring the other two. The Father, Son and Holy Ghost seems to separate the three parts. In people that is not logical. I agree...

Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Humans are the only animal that have religions. Animals don’t know cause and effect but humans do. Yet the cause of rain, sun and other natural phenomena were mysteries to ancient people. So, they guessed that gods were the cause. What else could it be? Belief in gods did not give ancient humans co...

bahman

Thanks. Most moral people do.

Christians read it and ignore and never reply.

They are not good at moral issues. Not surprising given their vile theology and god.

Re: Does each person of Trinity can decide freely and independently?

Could Jesus decide not to die? He is a human with a soul and He is free. Jesus said he was doing the fathers will and not his own, so I would say no, to your first. I disagree with your last. Gnostic Christianity thinks Jesus is just and archetypal good man hero of 1,000 faces. We hold no supernatu...
