I asked to prove that evolution is false, I never once mentioned abiogenesis which scientists are still working on. Near Death Experiences are a natural phenomena. If you're going to include near death experiences with Jesus in them, you might as well include near death experiences by other people who saw different things and deities. There's no reason to censor them out unless you're trying to sell some propaganda. Also, most of those near death experiences contradict one another. One guy saw Jesus with blue eyes, and one woman saw him with brown. They can't agree.

  • Which side in the "moon is a light source vs. moon reflects sunlight" debate do you support, and why?

    Should schools teach both theories, and let the kids decide?

    Should schools teach both theories, and let the kids decide? Bill Nye, the harmless children's edu-tainer known as "The Science Guy," managed to offend a select group of adults in Waco, Texas at a presentation, when he suggested that the moon does not emit light, but instead reflects the light of the sun. As even most elementary-school graduates know, the moon reflects the light of the sun but produces no light of its own. But don't tell that to the good people of Waco, who were "visibly angered by what some perceived as irreverence," according to the Waco Tribune. Nye was in town to participate in McLennan Community College's Distinguished Lecture Series. He gave two lectures on such unfunny and adult topics as global warming, Mars exploration, and energy consumption. But nothing got people as riled as when he brought up Genesis 1:16, which reads: "God made two great lights -- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars." The lesser light, he pointed out, is not a light at all, but only a reflector. At this point, several people in the audience stormed out in fury. One woman yelled "We believe in God!" and left with three children, thus ensuring that people across America would read about the incident and conclude that Waco is as nutty as they'd always suspected. This story originally appeared in the Waco Tribune, but the newspaper has mysteriously pulled its story from the online version, presumably to avoid further embarrassment.

  • Prayer is irrelevant.?

    If God is supposedly "all knowing", then what is the point of prayer? He already knows what your problem is, so why do you have to tell him? I expect most of the answers from Christians to not even relate to this question.

  • Could Atheists be the tool of God.... To save this planet from religion?

    Do Christians and Muslims have the human race.... our entire planet, the environment and well being, deepest in their hearts? Because isn't it these things that is 'God'? The blood baths over history caused by organized religion might have motivated 'God' to fill this planet with Atheists?

    The link below is to the web site of "The First Church of Atheism". If you poke around a little, you will find that this group has no congregations, and is not intended to lead atheists, but is rather a device to grant atheists access to things that only religious clergy have access to. It is a way for atheists to handle marriages, funerals, commitment ceremonies, etc. without having to deal with religious clergy. Still, it is a legitimate church. http://firstchurchofatheism.com/ Personally, this bothers me on several levels. First of all, marriage, funerals, and commitment ceremonies are not needed as a legal institutions. These are all social and cultural constructs, and there is no legitimate state interest in any of these things. All of the things that these institutions allow could be allowed without any ceremonies, or other religious entanglements. The church longs to be a part of the government, and that is why these things exist as legal institutions. They are cultural and social constructs of religious nature. We, as atheists, should be trying to fight these things as being simultaneously legal and religious constructs, not creating our own constructs to gain access to these things via the religious rout. That is us bowing down to the demands of the church, and it encourages the church to continue it's behavior. Secondly, it makes atheism sound like a religion. Atheists have nothing in common with each other besides their lack of faith in a god. All beliefs not of god are open to us. Two atheists can easily be as different from each other in terms of personal beliefs and philosophy as people of wildly different religions. The idea of having a church for us, as if we are all sheeple with a uniform set of beliefs, and with the need to be preached to is completely ridiculous, and spreads a false idea about the nature of atheists as a group. Personally, while I can understand why some of us would do this -to dodge the church in certain legal matters- I think this is the wrong way to do it. What do other atheists think.

    All my life I have never understood this concept. People keep telling me the only reason I question Christianity is because I have not "opened up to God", "have not heard his voice", "have not let Jesus into my body". Seriously speaking, I do not know how to do any of those things. I have tried doing things just to see if it was possible, but I have never hear, seen, or feat anything. Same with these "spirits". What are they, and why have I never experienced these? I've walked through graveyards, cemeteries, abandoned houses, you name it, and I have never heard, fealt, or seen anything. It is really hard for me to picture that any of these things are real if they can't be proven, and I can not experience it. When someone tells me they saw a ghost, I kind of think they have a mental issue. It's just not logical on my part, and I don't think God will ever "fly into my body" no matter how much I want him to. It just doesn't happen for me, and Christians get mad at me, because I somehow "do not understand" this unexplainable action. I apologize in advance for any grammatical issues. I don't understand any of your answers, maybe I should go check if I'm mentally retarded? ◆ Having love for God’s Word ◆ Manifesting the fruitage of the spirit ◆ Praying to God regularly and sincerely ◆ Sharing the Kingdom good news with others Are you saying "be good"? I have tried praying, and it just gives me a since of false hope, and a false reality.

    I am a 20 year old liberal parent and I am a strong agnostic and I only believe in a higher power like God, no hateful Christian God. I have a five and a half year old daughter. She lives with me as her mother was killed in an automobile accident two years ago when she was 19. My little girl is young but asks a lot of questions and has been in various head start/preschools since she was 2. Shes learned a lot and is very smart for her young age. So therefore I have educated her on various religions and beliefs. I don't force anyone on her because I believe she should make up her mind on her own when shes old enough. I will not force any religion down her throat. Well a few weeks ago, I asked a question mentioning I also do not tell her the story of Santa Claus like its a fact. She knows hes not real and she knows its make believe. She gets a lot of excitement in other ways that are real. Yet people here praised me for not forcing religion down her throat yet criticized me for not preaching Santa Claus. I am sorry but they are both in mind fantasies and lies. I will never teach lies to my daughter. My first rule is honesty and I want my daughter to be an honest and true girl to learn life as it it and not through silly fantasies. Sure she can make believe all she wants and have a lot of fun doing it. That's fine but I am not going to lie and tell her Santa is a real person. Its the same to me as telling her about God being real. And I have NOTHING against anyone who chooses to have different parenting roles. I just felt a lot of hypocrisy when people would praise for not forcing religion yet would complain for not teaching Santa. Does anyone get my point?
