Been one of Jehovah's Witnesses for the past 4 decades, online since 1991. (Romans 8:20, 21) 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will but through him that subjected it, on the basis of hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God.
Scott Adams, of Dilbert fame, has made some strong points about society and faith. He has an atheist's view point, especially on free will.
But his article on science's failures which really stand out in the field of health caused him to make the following statement:
I’m pro-science because the alternatives are worse. (Example: ISIS.) I’m sure most of you are on the same side. But can we stop being surprised when people don’t believe science? Humans can’t turn off pattern recognition. There’s a good reason trust in science is low. Science failed my generation on the topic of food and exercise the same way science failed my parents generation with cigarettes.7 AnswersReligion & Spirituality6 years ago
I had this question targeted by someone for "abuse". Will someone tell me how I cause offense?7 AnswersReligion & Spirituality6 years ago
Many people put their "faith" in science. But they make assumptions that they depend on to keep that faith. One that they depend on lately is that there is a Supersymmetry which "explains" all the forces and particles in the Universe. In fact, they have hung their theories on that SUSY so much, looking for missing mass, dark energy, and dark matter, that if there is NO proof of such symmetry that their theories fall into the Black Hole of dead theories. The article will appeal to REALLY GEEKY Geeks, so if you are not one, take a pain pill afterwards for the headache that will result.
And here is the reason it is here in R&S. Many claim that all their 'theories' are supported by science, but if such a major flaw exists and proven by "Science", will their "faith" be an empty one? Won't their faith become more of a "religion" than a "science"?14 AnswersReligion & Spirituality7 years ago
This "Purple" "new and improved" YA is close to useless. So my question is serious.
For example, on the OLD YA, you had to page down 20 questions, then change to another page. End result for Yahoo? Lost of "eyes" on ads. Because when you went to a new page, it took you to the top, where the Advertisement lived. Now in the Purple, you see one ad, and never return to the top.
You can't edit an answer. Sometimes the question is complex and requires research. You have ONLY ONE CHANCE to answer.
You can't spot people that you BLOCKED in the stack of questions. I had about 50 blocked because I didn't like them. Now I have try to remember them. Plus with the Block, whenever they changed their names, the Block stayed with them.
I can't find my answers directly because I have to pick through the answers of those I marked as my contact.
YOU NEED TO GIVE AN OPT OUT OF THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE or you must be honest and just close the whole thing down.8 AnswersYahoo Answers7 years ago
It is bad enough that the Churches stole most of the pagan customs and dressed them up as "Christian", but now they are staging a direct effort to pull those faithful "pagans" into their grasps!!

When we read in the news the acts of violence of one religion on another, is there a breaking point that the secular governing bodies will grab at the ones who are promoting these acts?

Here in Cameroon, the President has taken action to close about 100 Pentecostal churches for their fraud committed on the communities. Will this spread? Looking at the battle in Egypt against the Muslim Brotherhood, and the possible step to outlaw it, it is clear that religion is becoming a messy problem for governments.8 AnswersReligion & Spirituality7 years ago
I have had a number of those who don't like my faith decide to block me recently. It doesn't cause me any pain, and am, in fact, Glad that my faith is a threat to their little self absorbed world.
It does annoy me a bit that then they ask questions about my faith, but they only want their own little buddies to answer. But since they do know my answers and they don't want to hear them, I get the last laugh. They are saving me time that would be wasted on them and their poison.14 AnswersReligion & Spirituality7 years ago
