The Unanswerable

Started this discussion. Last reply by Future Jul 7. 2 Replies

This subject has been spoken of before. But I would like to revisit it. What we know today as Epicurus' Riddle: "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able,…Continue

Armageddon

This is my own opinion, and should in no way be taken as a prediction or prophecy, as I am an atheist. There will be an Armageddon, and it will be what it has been traditionally viewed as in…Continue

You know the old saying: "If the mountain won't come to Mohammed, then Mohammed will go to the mountain".I think that's what the far right in Government (who are for the most part…Continue

Who Are We To Thank If We Believe The Bible

Posted on June 28, 2014 at 3:00am 2 Comments

Job 2:9-10. "Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity ? Curse God, and die. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What ? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil ? In all this did not Job sin with his lips".

Proverbs 16:4. "The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil".

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

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…

Science on God

Posted on February 7, 2014 at 5:18am 3 Comments

http://tonyjordan37814.blogspot.com/2014/02/science-on-god.html

Scientists such as Victor Stenger et al., hold that the existence of a God like that worshipped by the big three monotheisms (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), can be disproved. 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…
