Belief in the One-True-God is very natural; it does not prohibit one accepting the scientific facts that prove to be natural.
Sorry but this guy has never sat for two days watching animals without interfering and just learning. this guy is an example of total lack of awareness in the moment. Whoever this is, is a perfect example of US Public school systems products. Ouch
I would say that at the very least it is extremely awkward to accept both fully. If you take the bible literally for example and you've read enough of it (or even the first page of Genesis), how do you square away what you're reading with science?
One is science and the other is faith. Neither is absolute. Some folks just cannot go back and forth. Genesis is interesting but I do not think they had slide rulers and calculators back then. Come to think of it, Do we today? See the point?
Ok... neither science nor faith is absolute in the sense that we cannot be 100% certain of either but I fail to see how this resolves the paradox of having an understanding of natural law AND also believing a bunch of stuff that goes against it.
Camaro, that is the fun part! if life is all circles and squares and rules.... that is not much fun. That is why I hate rules and religion, they illogically put confines on belief same as you. I believe my 76 Camaro LT edition was the best car ever.
Circles and squares don't have to mean a boring life. I find natural law fascinating. We bend to the laws of nature though, not the other way around. Belief is great when something is unknown but assertions that contradict known truths, less so.
someone just really insulted and hurt my feelings in my belief Is it Ok because it is anti-Christian?
I'm assuming you're referring to me. First, it's not anti-Christian. It's anti-theistic. Christianity is the convenient example in this case. Second, don't be offended until you look at the arguments objectively. Arguments are either sound or not
I could not have expressed my views any better. Borsia expressed my feeling on the subject.
If you have any good argument/proof that the One-True-God does not exist please present it here.
this whole comment is a crock it begins with "I find no ""reason"" to believe" who, who thinks themselves as wise could even write such idiocy. There is no a reason to believe. How childish to even notion it!!
" reason to believe"??? How can anyone?
anyone with a rational logical mind requires good reason to believe anything. Far more childish to believe without reason & proof in fantasy & fables.
Precisely. You are presented with an idea with which you are unfamiliar. A) You believe it without asking questions because it appeals to you or B) You criticize its accuracy until it is either debunked or deemed plausible. I don't see the problem
I think I will go with this "logic".
