What I Have To Say About the Creationists Demand for Equal Time On Cosmos

Started this discussion. Last reply by Sven Andersson Apr 4. 25 Replies

As far as I'm concerned about the Creationists demand for equal time on the Fox series "Cosmos A Spacetime Odyssey", it is nothing more than an attempt to besmirch the legacy of Carl Sagan and all…Continue

Philosophical Atheism (To the newest proselytizer to visit our page, from me. CW Brown), Courtesy of CW Brown, FaceBook Philosophical Atheism

Posted on February 18, 2014 at 7:17pm 2 Comments

Philosophical Atheism Before you go back and preach to your friends and saying I am an angry atheist. Think about it for a second. Many atheists like myself are not angry at God (because he probably does not exist), but [we are angry] at people like yourself for constantly shoving something down our throats that is without proper foundations, without the proper evidence. Many of us are very well educated and have looked into your…

What Would Be the Nature and Qualities of a Universe Designed By A Perfect Being ?

Posted on February 7, 2014 at 8:00pm 7 Comments

http://tonyjordan37814.blogspot.com/

One thing that every Christian regardless of whether they are fundamentalist, moderate, or liberal, believes, is that the universe and everything in it, including the earth and all living on it, is the product of design by a perfect being (God).

Jews and Muslims share this belief also to a greater or lesser degree. What, however, would be the nature and…

These men point out certain known facts about these gods. It is well known, for example, that in the Hebrew Scriptures, the Christian Old and New Testaments, and…

What Good Is Prayer ?

Posted on February 7, 2014 at 3:53am 7 Comments

http://tonyjordan37814.blogspot.com/

So, just what good is there in praying ? The short answer is absolutely nothing. If you are a Jew, Christian, or Muslim, then you believe in Yahweh alone, or Yahweh and his son Jesus who is said to be of one substance with him. If you're Muslim, then you believe in Allah and his prophet. But in all three cases God is believed to be Omnipotent (All powerful), Omniscient (all knowing), and…
