I know all of the theories that Adam and Eve (I even know about Lilith) were the very first two humans upon this Earth but there is a word in the Bible that does not sit well with this theory and is damn near cotradictory in this matter. That word would be "REPLENISH" as from The Holy Bible in Genesis 1:27-28: "27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28And God blessed them,...

Many people believe that homosexuality is a choice and is an abomination in the eyes of god. Well, that topic is debatable enough as it is, but what if a person is born with both the male and female reproductive organs? If being homosexual is really a sin, wouldn't a hermaphrodite be sinning either way because they possess both organs? Another question. The argument was brought up that god is perfect and would never allow someone to be bor...

And what is your religion? I notice some people get really touchy about the subject when people show doubt in their beliefs, and they will outright start raging and telling the other person they are wrong, others will ignore it completely, offer no defense and walk away. I'm assuming no one is going to openly say that they're a spazz case when it comes to their religion, but I still like to hear opinions on the subject. Any stories on the to...

According to Muslim religion is it worse to eat pork or drink alcohol?
When you die, you return to the soil, ground, earth. Today we know, that our bodies are made up of everything we can find on earth, in the ground. We are made of water, calcium, iron, and so forth. Thousands of years ago, on the account of genesis, the bible states that the lord grabbed the dirt/ dust/ clay, formed the human body, and breathed life into him. People for thousands of years have believed that "...I came from the earth...

In Genesis, the serpent tempts Eve. Nothing in the book suggests that the serpent was 'the devil' in disguise, nor does it imply 'the devil' was controlling the serpent. Further, when it was all over, God punished the serpent and it's offspring to crawl on their bellies and 'eat dust' - which would obviously make no sense if it was really the devil in disguise. Why then, when the story clearly states it was a serpent, and never makes any ...
How can I get possessed by a demon?
In the bible, what does that mean? A few days ago in the opinion section of our local paper some guy said that when we die, there is no heaven and there is no hell. he said we go into some kinda underworld and fade away. he took some scriptures from the bible...like the one I put in the title of this question. im not sure if I quoted it right but its something like that... like...since we were made from dust, we will return to dust. (if I didn...

How come Jehovah Witnesses don't celebrate holidays? I'm curious on why they don't Celebrate birthdays either. Or, not being allowed to attend a birthday party? I just don't understand it. I don't have anything against the religion but, it's sad they don't celebrate holidays or birthdays or any other event except marriage. It seems like we all take that for granted sometimes. I can't imagine how I'd feel if I was a Jehovah Witness not able ...

So can the religious people on here expalin why "god" would ...

Im sopposed to be catholic but the idea of being re-born as a baby makes more sense to me than anything else. Even more sense than there being nothing. Which is weird as im normally very realistic and logical. It makes sense to me in a way that nothing else does. I mean, babies cant remember anything from when they are born till when they are around 9 months old. Why not? I think having past lives makes sense too. Whats your opinion?

I am sixteen, and my mom wants to force her religion on me. I was a christian until eighth grade. up until that time, I had been going to church and I was pretty into it. around eighth grade, I became agnostic, and in high school, I became an all out strong atheist. I tolerated going to church for about a year after deconverting, and then I told my mom that I wouldn't go anymore. I told her why I don't believe and asked her to give me so...

In Descartes meditations on first philosophy Decartes decides to discard of any belief he has that have any doubt. He then attempts to use logic to find if those beliefs are true or false. However if you read these meditations he seems to fail at discarding preconceived notions about god. Example: God is perfect Existence is more perfect than non existence. God must exist. This is one of many ways Descr...
I am a Satanist and whenever I telll anybody they automatically start hating me. Why is that. Why can't people accept me for who I am? I don't think a person's religion should matter to others so much. I have friends with a lot of religious backrounds and I don't treat them differently because of that. Why do people treat me with disrespect when I tell them my religion?

I mean i liked many singers before,but then i realized the most of them specially pop stars make symbolism in their videos, like lady gaga and many other singers, and when i found a new singer that i like is attached to the illluminati thing. So what happen if we dont see the videos where they made their evil symbolism, and only hear the songs that wouldnt affect us with the symbolism. What do you think? These songs have catchy rhythms.
As much as you may belive in god why should you have extra respect for a priest, to my eyes he's just an ordinary person like anyone else, the'll die the same and has to find a way to make a living the same as anyone else, So are they suposed to be closer to god, I think there's no difference between any person.

I don't know of any evidence, and I don't think there is any...proving that "God" exists. What are some people saying is evidence? I often hear people say there is evidence, but they never say what that evidence is.
Why is it that people have trouble in believing in God? Yes there is suffering and misery in this world, but God gave man free will, and it's humans that are the ones causing it. The guilt people feel about religion, I believe, was caused by the early Roman Catholics, who re-wrote the real bible in 54 AD. They wanted the illiterate people of the day to follow them(and get their money). So they added somethings like hell and the devil.
