Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

I am not sure what you mean by a 'naturalistic god'. The idea of a god is the idea of a person, whatever it may involve. But the natural world is surely not a person - it does not have a mind, with thoughts and desires. Potatoes do not feel, hope, or desire anything. And nor does the soil they grow...

Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

It's generally difficult to interpret most abrahamic scriptures as teaching pantheist doctrine. What could easily be confused as pantheism is actually a statement of God’s alleged “omni-presence.” Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, yo...

Is it moral for our governments to impose poverty on us?

Is it moral for our governments to impose poverty on us? Taxation determines what poverty levels will exist within it’s demographic form. It controls the graph shown below. Governments control taxation and thus control poverty levels directly. Imagine if you will, the real truth of that taxation, if...

Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event? Nature gives us life and spirit. Our spirit gives us god. A god within each of us is very ancient thinking. We cannot define our gods exactly. We can only use analogies. I think that supernatural gods do not n...

Religious and political disunity has condemned Earth. Should we thank our religious leaders?

Religious and political disunity has condemned Earth. Should we thank our religious leaders? One needs not be a rocket scientist to recognize that it is our failure at the U.N. and other international bodies, who are working hard to unite the world politically and religiously; that is the core of ou...

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

He's not stalking us; he's ghosting us! If you're not aware of what ghosting means, it refers to when somebody ends a relationship with the person they're dating by simply not responding to any of their texts, returning their calls, etc. and ceasing any form of communication. Whenever a theist ente...

Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us? Love without reciprocity, works and deeds, according to scriptures and Jesus’ own words, not that a supernatural Jesus ever existed, is not a true love. All you need to do, to know the truth of that notion; is to look at your own standards of love. You...

Re: Would it be possible to have a conversation regarding the toleration of pussy grabbing presidents and pedophile prot

Let's have some fun and some imagine what right wing people might say 50 years from today. "Of course open borders are a good idea, nobody in our party would deny that for a second, but we just feel that we are still 20 years away from achieving this and need the mass migrations to continue at a mo...

Re: Would it be possible to have a conversation regarding the toleration of pussy grabbing presidents and pedophile prot

OK, you shouldn't say that - a sexual assault on a woman is a serious matter. That being said Trump's pussy grabbing comment really was locker room talk in the sense that he probably has never literally grabbed a pussy. He has grabbed other parts, but that was an exaggeration. The left does not nee...

Re: Would it be possible to have a conversation regarding the toleration of pussy grabbing presidents and pedophile prot

I wasn't aware that the Pope was politically active? In the United States, most Republicans are Protestant rather than Catholic, which goes for all Americans. Most of our Presidents have been Protestant, and only one, JFK, was Catholic. Is it different in Europe? Anyway, the left had Bill Clinton, ...
