  • Christians, What's your answer for the Riddle of Epicurus?

    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? It's funny, only one person has put a valid answer to the question. That doesn't mean I agree with them,... show more

  • What is the deal about New Atheism?

    I am a proud Catholic, and I have absolutely no problem with someone who is an Atheist or wants to be one. I also have no disregard of modern science. I was reading about New Atheism and the Four Horsemen recently out of curiosity and to expand my current knowledge, and I had some questions.

    I am a proud Catholic, and I have absolutely no problem with someone who is an Atheist or wants to be one. I also have no disregard of modern science. I was reading about New Atheism and the Four Horsemen recently out of curiosity and to expand my current knowledge, and I had some questions. The first main thing that I had a question on was what was entailed in the beliefs of "New Atheism"? The definition is: "This modern-day atheism is advanced by a group of thinkers and writers who advocate the view that superstition, religion and irrationalism should not simply be tolerated but should be countered, criticized, and exposed by rational argument wherever their influence arises in government, education, and politics." I understand the separation of church and state listed in the First Amendment (which I agree with) but there is also the freedom to practice religion as well guaranteed by the First Amendment. I looked at the definition, and I watched some youtube videos on the topic, and it seems as if these "New Atheists" want to destroy churches, not allow people to vote based upon religious principles, or practice any semblance of religion outside of their home , and also that they want religious people to violate their principles and/or religious values whenever it conflicts with secular interests (which all these to me seems like persecution and bigotry). Criticism of religion is welcomed, and one thing, but to "destroy" and combat religion is terrible. Please clarify. Religious people should not force Atheists to violate their beliefs, and Atheists should not force religious people to violate theirs. PERIOD. Any Catholic who believes someone is going to hell for any reason is an idiot and a fraud. The bible teaches us that it is only God's place to determine who is going to hell, and who isn't, so to claim that I say that you are "spawns of Satan" or "Going to hell for being an Atheist" is erroneous. Judge people as individuals, not as a collective. Many of you have made the assertion that I am wrong, and since my beliefs are not "the empirical truth", that I have no right to believe them. Well that is not your decision to make, if I want to believe things that are "erroneous", that is my choice, and you must respect that whether you agree with them or not because I PERSONALLY am not infringing ing upon your beliefs, I don't care what other fake Catholics are doing.

  • Christians say the Son of God is Jesus, and that Jesus is God, therefore they are saying the Son of God was absent from Heaven for 33 years?

    Therefore, they believe only two thirds of God was present in Heaven for those 33 years that The Son of God lived as Jesus on Earth. Now if a Christian disagrees with this , then that means they are saying that half of the Son of God was in Heaven and half of the Son of God was on Earth for the 33 years. But, but, but if a Christian disagree with... show more

But, but, but if a Christian disagree with that, then that means they are saying that The Son of God was in 2 places at once .... therefore the Son of God both died on the cross and did NOT die on the cross (the one in heaven didn't die). Why are Christians soooooooo dopey?

  • Jews do you believe the Torah or do you agree with science that Israelites were Canaanites originally?

    They broke away and created a history for themselves. Abraham Isaac Jacob Moses were literally inventions. I can write a Character into a book does not make him a real person.

  • What is Hades?

    In christan / jewish / muslim belief.... not the greek god, or the underworld.... So did it come from greek mythology? And wasnt it the river Archeron, not styx? And if it was, where did Styx come from? I wanted to leave greek out of it, because i was trying to see if they had a different belief than the Greeks, who were the reason for that word....

  • Muslims, the koran says Jesus made a bird from clay, & blew life into it & it was alive. Isnt God the only one that has the Breath life?

    Not Mohomad, or even the prophets could do what Jesus did, according to your koran. Isnt your koran calling Jesus God, by attributing to Him, the "Giver of life" status?

  • Why do Christians think Jews are going to hell?

    Many "uneducated" Christians tell me I am going to hell. I am Jewish, educated, and unconcerned for the concept of hell as we see it in the movies/books..
