As far as acts of God and natural disasters go, I think there are things that can be explained in terms of timing, like hurricanes that show up on weather radar and satellite, or things like volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that we can be reasonably certain WILL happen although we're not always ce...

I don't think there is a God. But if there was one, I'd imagine their conscious as divinely simple. What is more admirable than a being that's perfectly content, all the time, with as little effort as possible? Thought experiment: That, but always unidentifiably discontent. :twisted: That's how we ...

I mean if God is timeless it means he can be every period of universe at the same moment. He could be sentient of that, but what does it mean to be sentient at once of infinite many things at the same time? What would sentience even accomplish in such sense? Well, God existing OUTSIDE of time and s...

An interesting idea. If the laws and forces of the Universe are considered to be a god, and a multiverse exists, are there infinite gods or only infinite manifestations of the same god, the one which created the multiverse in the first place? Idk if I’m comfortable with the idea of “infinite manife...

According to science, we are sentient because being aware of ourselves and our environment helped our ancestors to survive and reproduce; we evolved from non-sentient life forms over a period of billions of years. I do not think that god is an animal like us, so in my opinion it is incorrect to ass...

All while they view themselves as deserving of Heaven simply because they think believing in Jesus is their Get Out of Jail Free card when they act judgemental and cruel towards anybody outside their cattle cult.. Marx came up with the saying that "Religion is the opiate of the people". F...

Serving God and money? Well, that's an easy one for capitalist Christians. You can't serve two masters. First of all, I don't understand Christians who make claims to hating money. As human beings, what are we to God that God would give His Son to save us from an eternity separated from Him? If God ...

A human life is a human life and that's all that matters. So when does "human life" begin? Since you're an evangelical Christian, I would be interested in your thoughts on what the Bible has to say about that matter. I'm not Christian myself, but it seems to me that the Bible does NOT sup...

You've hit on precisely why sentience is relevant. Elderly people are sentient people, Evidence. Please. What? Are you really asking for evidence that elderly people are sentient??? Or did you mean to ask a different question? Not all human beings outside the womb express sentience as we understand...

Many of the Founding Fathers were Deists who believed God created us, then felt like He had to stay out of human affairs. Many probably were in-closet atheists. There were consequences for overt atheism in the 18th century. The US was founded as one of the first fully secular nations. If we allow r...

I mean why can't christians just opt not to have abortions, rather than trying to force it on the rest of it. In the end according to their beliefs god is the final judge, so why not just leave it up to god to judge the 'sinful aborters'? Try that argument for other crimes. Sometimes you have to pr...
