  • Is it right to punish all for the sins of a few?

    I don't want to start a debate, but I always questioned that why is it right to punish the innocent for the sins of a few people. One example is the story of Adam and Eve, why were Cain and Able banished from the garden? Why were all women punished for Eve's actions?

Why must every human be punished just because of the choices of those 2. It not in just that story, but many of them in different religions and even current times with the persecution between religions. Why should a moral person be condemned for doing nothing wrong except living a good life? Thats the major problem I have with most religions which is why I follow my own core beliefs. Just answer me why for all the injustice.

    Do you think that Christian, Jewish, and Muslim people will ever get along again like they used to in the city of Toledo in the area of Granada Spain in the past? That city used to be the intellectual capital of the world with the three groups working together in the scientific, mathematical, and literary fields. Yes they did have a few quarrels for the implementation of the current number system we use which the Arabic Muslims created by combining the Decimal system from India and the Roman Numeral system and adding the number Zero. The Christians were against this because they didn't like the idea of a number that could mean nothing by itself and something at the same time when added to the end of another number such as ten. But otherwise do you feel they could ever work together again or do you feel that they hate each other too much to work together and can not put aside their differences. Do you think there is a modern day intellectual capital that they are a part of?

Here, our ancestors performed advanced rituals, worshipping the python some 70,000 years ago. The sensational discovery strengthens Africa's position as the cradle of modern man. The new archaeological findings in Botswana show that our ancestors in Africa engaged in ritual practice 70,000 years ago - some 30,000 years earlier than the oldest findings in Europe.

  • Do you find movies, books, music or other light humor stuff for example the movie Dogma offensive or a relief?

    Do you find these things a well needed break kind of like having a sense of humor about yourself or do you take it as a literal attack and consider it blasphemy? I find that movie amusing. To me its nothing but just some harmless satire such as FSM. What do you think?

    What this person told me is that Christians from the future went back in time and used futuristic holograms, devices and futuristic medicine to act as prophets and as the word of God. They did this because in their time Christianity is a minority which is only practiced by less than 1% of the world's population and declining. They hoped that by changing the past to make the Bible true it would change the future. Not going by the scientific fact that you cannot change what has already become. In the case of Jesus he was actually of hispanic decent and hence given that name and was conceived by artificial insemination and was taught how to use the futuristic technology which caused the miracles he performed. He was crucified and did die but his body was later switched with a clone of the original Jesus which went back into the future. When he did this it was thought he asended into heaven. The Christian then gave up the program when they saw it was not working. Crazy isn't it?

  • What do you think of the comparisons of the story of Jesus being constructed from the story of Horus?

    You can see the comparisons here. Remember Horus is from an older time frame than Jesus. http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_jc... I have studied some Egyptian mythology and have found some of these, but I wouldn't go as far as to say I have seen them all because I never tried to compare the two. I only had a basic study of it.

For example, if the Institute for Creation Research sought relevant information from Genesis, would they determine that plants were created, then animals, then humans (Genesis 1), or humans, then plants then animals (Genesis 2)? 3. Apostles James and Paul disagreed about a key doctrine: whether "salvation" is by faith alone, or faith and works combined. Compare the direct contradictions (when analyzed for parallel vocabulary and parallel grammatical structure in the original language) in wording between Romans 3:28 and James 2:24. Additional scriptures support faith alone (Romans 3:27-28 & 4:6; II Timothy 1:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16; Titus 3:5), while others specify the need for works / good deeds (Matt 16:27, Revelations 2:26 & 20:12; 2 Timothy 4:14; Philippians 2:12; James 2:24-26).

    The definition of pride is noun: unreasonable and inordinate self-esteem (personified as one of the deadly sins) noun: the trait of being spurred on by a dislike of falling below your standards noun: a feeling of self-respect and personal worth noun: satisfaction with your (or another's) achievements So everyone who says that their religion is the right religion or their god is the best and only god is commiting this sin. That is if they do it in a boastful manner, such as trying to convert or looking down on someone or putting too much emphasis on it. Also if they do not keep a humble outlook towards other religions. The 7 sins are listed in the Bible under Proverbs 6:16-19: for any Christian who wants to deny it is in their scripture. What is your take on this? I just want your opinion without the bashing please. I would like to hear from both sides of this.
