Doubting Like Thomas
It is reported that, when Thomas doubted the Resurrection, Jesus did NOT send the Holy Spirit to inspire the other disciples to preach at him, nor to threaten him with Hellfire, nor to tell him what Jesus "really" meant. Instead, Jesus just showed up for a brief chat. I sure wish Christians would leave it up to Jesus, and stop preaching at me.

I'm asking for ten items total, in each answer:
Your opinion of the five biggest broken promises from the Obama campaign, and the 5 biggest promises from the Trump campaign.
If you can't remember ANY promises your favourite candidate didn't keep, you may be biased.2 respuestasElectionshace 3 semanas
It's visible from a large part of the Earth's surface, and yet, there are no reports from any observers outside of Muhammad's home area noticed. And no reports from non-Muslims IN the area. Seems that IF it really happened, people would have noticed.2 respuestasRamadanhace 4 semanas
Theists: Do you understand the DIFFERENCE between claiming "There ARE no Gods" and simply REJECTING your claim that there ARE Gods?
If you look at a large jar of gumballs, and one person says the total number of gumballs MUST be an even number, because they have FAITH that is is even, and another person tells you it must be an ODD number, because they have FAITH that it is an odd number, you can reject one claim, without believing that the other claim is true.
In like manner, atheists can reject a faith-based claim about your favourite Gods and Goddesses, simply because there has not been sufficient evidence to support your claim.
Piles of words are not proof. Religions other than yours have piles of words, which they claim is all the proof any person needs, to believe that THIER religion is right, and yours is nonsense.10 respuestasReligion & Spiritualityhace 1 mes
Look at HISTORY!
A DEMOCRAT, Franklin D. Roosevelt, got elected.
Got to be PRESIDENT for the rest of his LIFE!
ANOTHER Democrat, John F. Kennedy, got elected just ONCE, and got to be president for the rest of his life.
A COLOURED FELLOW, Papa Doc Duvalier, declared HIMSELF president for life of an entire nation.
But let just one WHITE, REPUBLICAN president start complaining about how absentee balloting and rampant voter fraud might FORCE him to refuse to leave office, so HE can be President For Life, and all the sudden, the Lamestream Media and treasonous Libtards and even his own NIECE and previous High Ranking and TRUSTED members of his staff are howling, whining, and writing BOOKS about how THIS TIME, it's symptoms of "Narcissistic Personality Disorder" and other deep flaws in his character.

Bible reports that Noah got staggering drunk, went into his house, and passed out, naked.
Ham noticed the old man was having difficulty, and like a GOOD son, went in to check up on the old boy.
Told his brothers THE TRUTH: "Dad is passed out, drunk and naked.!"
So the other 2 backed in, put a cloak over him.
Noah woke up with a hangover, and, rather than ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY for his abuse of alcohol, called down a curse on Ham's son Canaan.
And GOD (Infinitely wise and infinitely just) AGREED to curse Canaan.
Canaan did not do ANYTHING.
What is Infinitely Wise and Infinitely Just about cursing a child, and ALL that child's descendants, because the child's FATHER told the truth?
Other than a MYTH, made up to allow the Hebrews to practice racism toward the Canaanites, why even tell the story AS IF it was true?14 respuestasReligion & Spiritualityhace 2 meses

A person who is NOT a Trump supporter e-mailed this message to her from the Trumpees:
"S*****, You’ve always been one of the President’s most loyal supporters, and we really thought we could count on you to step up.The President really wants you on his team as a Gold Card Member, so in honor of the 4th of July, you can now activate your membership and get your very own PERSONALIZED Gold Card formerly $35, now only $25."Politicshace 3 meses

When I was a child, I was taught that all injuries would be repaired, amputated limbs restored.
So, Question 2: Will amputated foreskins be restored?
Question 3: Since the Resurrection fulfilled the Old Law, and circumcision was no longer a requirement, would the RISEN body of Jesus have had the foreskin restored?
Not that it's important. just curious as to what those who believe that Jesus DID have a risen body, believe about it, and why they believe it.6 respuestasReligion & Spiritualityhace 3 meses
Step ONE: A U.S. Marine in DRESS uniform, not riot gear, comes out and w(ith a bullhorn) ASKS the peaceful demonstrators to move back to clear a path for the people who want to cross the square.
Step TWO, plan A: They move.
Step two, plan B: They REFUSE to move, and THEN the chemical irritants and rubber bullets are employed.
Step THREE: The Government releases the complete video, PROVING that Mr. Trump TRIED as polite and rational approach, before resorting to dictatorial suppression of the First Amendment rights of the citizens he had SWORN to protect.2 respuestasPoliticshace 3 meses
Is there any REAL difference between the Bible reporting many people seeing Risen Jesus, and the tabloids reporting sightings of ELVIS?
For the sake of discussion, I shall stipulate that both persons did live, and did die.
In both cases, there is no testable, repeatable, consistent evidence that the sightings of EITHER person really happened.13 respuestasReligion & Spiritualityhace 3 meses
Why do religions have RULES about why their Gods and Goddesses cannot allow us to see them and PROVE their existence?
Theists claim that it would destroy our Free Will. And yet, they ALSO claim that SATAN was in God's presence, yet SATAN had the free will to rebel.
Looks like they want it both ways.6 respuestasReligion & Spiritualityhace 4 meses
