    Atheist churches being established around the world? From the ECONOMIST comes this report about Seattle, London, Dallas and more... '….this “atheist church” aims to offer some features of a religious congregation (fellowship, collective enjoyment, a stimulus to moral behaviour) while eschewing any belief in a deity or the supernatural. Ruth Walther, the founder of the Seattle community, sums up its ethos by drawing a contrast with a Christian hymn, “God moves in a mysterious way”. At her church, she says, “We believe in good because good works in non-mysterious ways.”    https://www.economist.com/erasmus/2018/0...

  • Serious Bible students like Jehovah's Witnesses, How would you explain Hebrews 5:7-10?

    Trinitarians can try but most will have answers that are at best laughable. I'm looking for real answers.

  • Is this an example of Islam tolerance when they become a majority?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/09/world... The accusation of blasphemy engulfed Ahok in September after a video surfaced of him telling voters they were being deceived if they believed a specific verse in the Quran prohibited Muslims from voting for a non-Muslim leader. What do you think?

    It was easy whit the green format. Now voting seems to have become extinct. Is there a procedure I miss?

  • IS THIS 1965 PROPHECY COMING TRUE?

    in 1965, Paul Harvey, gave a prophetic statement about what the Devil would do. If I Were The Devil by Paul Harvey (1965) If I were the Devil….If I were the price of Darkness, I’d want to engulf the whole world in Darkness. And I would have a third of its real estate and four fifths of its population But I would not be happy until I... show more
    in 1965, Paul Harvey, gave a prophetic statement about what the Devil would do. If I Were The Devil by Paul Harvey (1965) If I were the Devil….If I were the price of Darkness, I’d want to engulf the whole world in Darkness. And I would have a third of its real estate and four fifths of its population But I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, thee So I would set out however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first I’d begin with a campaign of whispers With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.” To the young I would whisper that the Bible is a myth. I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that bad is good and what’s good is “square”. And the old I would teach to pray after me: “Our father, which art in Washington” And then I’d get organized I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction I’d tranquilize the rest with pills If I were the Devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, Churches at war with themselves, Nations at war with themselves. Until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames. If I were the Devil I’d encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions—just let them run wild Until before you knew it you would have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door. Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing And judges promoting pornography. Soon I could evict God from the Courthouse And then from the Schoolhouse And then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money. If I were the Devil I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg and of Christmas a bottle. If I were the Devil, I would take form those who had and give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And what would you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promate gambling as the way to get rich. I would caution against extremes; In hard work In patriotism In moral conduct I would convince the young that marriage is old fashioned, that swinging is more fun and what you see on TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and lure into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were the Devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he is doing. Was Mr Harvey correct? What do you think?

    The U S is now systematically calling for Gay marriage to be legal. And laws by states, even with a vast majority of people want marriage to be only between a man and a woman are being called unconstitutional. Here is a possible solution to make most people happy.. How about this. Outlaw all marriage. And make the state pay for all child upbringing. The only exception would be for a couple to raise children on their own if they desire. This way everyone is happy. Gays are happy. They can live with whoever or whatever they want. Atheists are happy as God is the originator of marriage and they don't want anything to do with God. Christians are happy. They can have their own ceremony if they desire and bring up their own children if they want to pay for them (no tax breaks) The only unhappy ones would be the ACLU and Muslims. No need to say why and give them ammunition. What do you think?

  • Jehovah's Witnesses & others, What are your thoughts on the resurrection? What will it be like?

    Will we be able to recognize loved ones? Where will we be resurrected to? Heaven? Earth? Or some other place? What does it mean to be resurrected? Please use the Bible in your answers.

    If we apply Moore's law to extrapolate the past? Here's the problem when you do this. As life has evolved, its complexity has increased exponentially, just like _Moore’s law_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore's_law... which states that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. Geneticists, Alexei Sharov at the National Institute on Ageing in Baltimore and Richard Gordon at the Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory in Florida, have extrapolated this trend backwards and found that by the measure of Moore's Law, life is older than the Earth itself. The team takes Moore's Law back to zero complexity and the _origin of life_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis... , by measuring the complexity of life and the rate at which it has increased from prokaryotes to eukaryotes to more complex creatures such as worms, fish, amphibians and eventually mammals. The result is an exponential increase identical to that behind Moore’s Law with the doubling time, however, expanding to 376 million years rather than every two years. The application of Linear regression of genetic complexity on a log scale extrapolated back to just one base pair suggests the time of the origin of life 9.7 billion years ago. This cosmic time scale for the _evolution of life_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution) has important consequences: life took ca. 5 billion years to reach the complexity of bacteria; the environments in which life originated and evolved to the prokaryote stage may have been quite different from those envisaged on Earth. Therefore they suggest that if life takes 10 billion years to evolve to the level of complexity associated with homo sapiens, then we may be among the first, if not the first, intelligent civilisation in the Milky Way, negating Drakes Equation. (http://www.dailygalaxy.com/.a/6a00d8341bf7f753ef019104ed8588970c-pi) On the _semilog plot_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semi-log_plot) above , the complexity of organisms, as measured by the length of functional non-redundant DNA per genome counted by nucleotide base pairs (bp), increases linearly with time (Sharov, 2012). Time is counted backwards in billions of years before the present (time 0). Credit: arXiv:1304.3381 [physics.gen-ph] Additionally they suggest that the evolution of advanced organisms has accelerated via development of additional information-processing systems: epigenetic memory, primitive mind, multicellular brain, language, books, computers, and Internet. As a result the doubling time of complexity has reached about every 20 years. Sharov and Gordon also point out that astronomers believe that our Solar Nebula formed from the remnants of an earlier star, suggesting that life from this period might be preserved in the original gas, dust and ice clouds. In a form of Cosmic pansermia, _life on Earth_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life) may be a continuation of a process that began many billions of years before the formation of our Solar System." (Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change)
