• Why do Christians believe that children are born in sin?

    Best answer: Because they’ve been conditioned into believing that.

    Best answer: Because they’ve been conditioned into believing that.

    As much as I regret being born to the crappy parents I had, I am very happy that neither of them were religious so I grew up with vey little religious “conditioning and training” aka brainwashing.

    I attended various types of services with friends and extended family during sleepovers and have read about and studied (including college courses on religion and on brain function) and understand the psychological, social, cultural and governmental function of religion, but do not formally participate in any sort of worship actively. I can go to services, but spend the entire time analyzing from a biological, anthropological and social construct perspective. Not that interesting to me, I’d rather go out and enjoy a starry night or a forest.

    Brain science: We are biologically programmed to beleive in the unseen. Our ancestors who “beleived” there might be a tiger lurking and took steps to avoid it survived more often than those who didn’t “beleive” in the tiger.

    Social science: Feeling like we are part of a group is a social mechanism for survival.

    Because of my crappy parenting and “different” set of social and survival skills, I live outside all of that, blessedly (%^)) free of the guilt, obligation and strictures that go along with it.

    Best answer: The possession of the spirits can make anyone to do anything. All humans' lives depend on the possession of the spirits. Human beings are ruled by spirits but humans must learn to control and rule the spirits. Spirits possess people according to the mental state of the human beings and keep them in the same state until they are rejected and replaced by another. This is an all time phenomena occurring in all humans. Human beings are always under the influence of spirits. Certain situations and circumstances causes the possession of certain type of spirits. Often thinking and talking about bad subjects or bad imaginations even for fun can take serious turns on one who think and talk. Often thinking and talking about good subjects with good imaginations can create positive effects in your life. Your favorable thoughts and beliefs can bring favorable spirits by your side. The more you think the more would be the possession of that spirit. All spirits (good and bad) have the dominating character. They can take you to the extent of sacrifice or suicide.

    All of your activities, talks and even thoughts determine what kind of spirits you will have for your life. Only these spirits are the reason for the good and bad happening in your life. Generally spirits determine your destiny from your daily activities, talks and thoughts too. Spirits are separate elements. A human being is not a single spirit. A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. A human being during his/her life time is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games.

    I want to believe there’s a god but can’t. I want some sort of proof that god created this or is here with us rather than it being created by science and chance

  • Why did Jesus say "why hast thou forsaken me?"?

    Best answer: Some idiot Christian will tell you that he was just quoting from Psalms, but I'm convinced that was a coincidence. He genuinely thought God had abandoned him.
