Science Of The Soul

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7SQoQj9868 C. S. Lewis said that we don't have souls, we are souls. Is that true or false? Is reincarnation true? Is resurrection true? Do heaven and hell exist? How can we know the truth about ourselves and reality? I want to know the whole truth about everyone and ...

Predestination, causality, culpability

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zdxdqhv/revision/7 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Predestination If God has predestined our births, our lives, our choices and our deaths, isn't all praise and all blame attributable to God alone? Living things don't have free will. We are prisoners of causality ...

Hell and other people

When I was a devout Muslim, I used to worry about all the billions of non-Muslims who will be suffering infinite pain in hell for infinite length of time. I wanted to turn everyone into a Muslim so that they would avoid going to hell and go to heaven instead. When I became a Christian, I used to wor...

Re: Is God evil or imaginary?

There is nothing fair about this reality we find ourselves in. The evil ones prosper at the expense of the innocent ones e.g. evil factory farmers profit at the expense of the caged animals, evil slave owners profit at the expense of the enslaved, evil murderers profit at the expense of the murdered...

The impossible

I think it is impossible to truly know someone else. Only you know what it is like to be you. Only I know what it is like to be me. Unless one has lived in the brain and the body of another person, one can't truly know what it is like to be another person. If I had the genes, environments, nutrients...

Re: Is God evil or imaginary?

We live in an evil world where only suffering, unfairness and death are guaranteed for sentient biological beings. I wish I could prevent all suffering, unfairness and deaths but I can't. I hate this horrific reality. I wish I were all-powerful because then I would have ensured that no one ever suff...
