    John the Baptist and Jesus

    I will put forth that this post is a quest for information from Christians on their thinking on this matter, not some gotcha post. I'm sure there are doctrinal answers to this that I would like to become aware of. It puzzled me as to why it is claimed that only through Christ could one be...

    Kant and "The other Realm"

    I'm helping my daughter struggling to understand Kant's Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysics of Morals for a class on Moral Philosophy for her Law degree. While doing so I noticed what I consider a glaring error in Kant's argument paralleling Christian thought. Kant thought it plausible...

    Does faith lead to subjective or objective human experience?

    Transported from the Society Ethics forum because the question seems relevant here. Christians claim an objective reality, especially in the realm of morality, as dictated by the nature of God. But the the entire experience of faith is, by definition, subjective - outside the experience of...

    Why slaughter the lamb?

    If you think you are a sinner, why not offer yourself to crucifixion and become responsible for your own salvation? Why is this not an option if you believe in both the method and the end result? You are all sons of God through faith. As Christians, why do you take the easy way out via the...

    If God Were Married

    Those of us with wives, wives that are the mothers of our children, know this all too well. After all the superficial arguments over what curtains to hang in Eden and whether any of the animals are allowed in the house, much less up on the furniture, I’m sure, given the events that eventually...

    Mercy.

    Kwame Ajamu was 17 years old when he was found guilty of murder and sentenced to die because of the mistaken testimony of a 13 yr. old child - testimony that the child later attempted to recant. Not a shred of evidence, forensic or physical connected Kwame to the crime. He had no previous...

    Hoyle Vs. Gamow. Steady State or Big Bang?

    Been reading a bit on the war of Steady State vs. Big Bang. Simple question for someone more studied in Big Bang vs. Steady State theory. Hoyle's problem in Steady State theory was that he couldn't show the science, or isolate an observable instance behind the engine of all the new stuff...

    Christian Nihilism

    It is not a secret that the Christian religion is an apocalyptic religion that waits for the end times. In the Christian worldview, creation seems a meaningless waste. The world was never created for human learning and/or experience, even before the fall. God wanted none of that. There were only...

    Why atheists themselves are the definition of morality for Christians

    There is a famous story told in Chassidic literature that addresses this very question. The Master teaches the student that God created everything in the world to be appreciated, since everything is here to teach us a lesson. One clever student asks “What lesson can we learn from atheists? Why...

    God said "Apology not accepted"

    Why would god not accept merely a sincere apology? He's omniscient, he would know if it was sincere. Why did he have to go and kill somebody for it?

    Why Christianity is evil.

    When a Christian takes on their faith, they project onto us all a capital debt to God and the damnation of suffering eternal hellfire of the entire world of non-Cristian humanity unless we propitiate their way to their God. I won't allow anybody the space and peace to think that poison anymore...
