  1. Is it possible to do other than what you will actually do?
  2. They aren't looking for guidance, they're looking for assurance.
  3. I completely agree that it is the heart that find religion, and not the mind. The mind only allows, the mind solves conflicts and shows that religion is a rational possibility. If you are sincere in trying to find religion, then I suggest you speak to scholars (on someone else's recommendation). They will know the ways, for those who have an open heart. I truly feel sorry for those who have no faith at all, not because I believe they are living in ignorance, but because they simply cannot feel what a believer does. This is something which is impossible to explain through words - which mak
  4. That's a bold claim The only man who has any potential of telling you truth is the Philsopher Yes, it's true
  5. Seems like you answered your own question
  6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacinta_and_Francisco_Marto#Illness_and_death Although the videos from Hujr were fake the fact that they reported they had taken out the 'body' means there was something more than just brittle bones (which should probably be almost dust by now). Also I recall something similar happening in Iran some time ago. I'll try to find out more about that.
  7. The God I believe is the only God that can exist - not one I pick and choose. My problem was that you were looking at only one aspect of God and claiming that He must do this or that because of it. God is all merciful and kind - but He is all just and wise. When you put all these together, it becomes difficult to tell what should/should not be the case. You create scenario's based on your own thoughts and experience and claim that an all powerful God must follow the same course of action, this is what I cannot agree with. Feel free to have it as a personal motive to reject God, but it is not a
  8. I disagree. Let us use your example of diseases such as cancer that cause slow and painful deaths to people. Surely this is bad. They suffer and in the end they only die. There is no immediate benefit to this. But from what I understand, my religion tells us that those who suffer and go through these sorts of things are rewarded in one or another after they die. This, of course, is an impossible thing to argue with an atheist. But it is the only answer. They do not like to hear this response because it gives them nothing that is breakable or physical but such is the nature of what we are try
  9. If we take this on a personal level, you are right. I do not believe most conversations about God have any (logical) worth. We are discussing things that we cannot understand. I do find arguments about God futile, not only because no one wins but because we aren't really saying anything to each other. Nonetheless, I do participate. Language does have the ability to make others see something that logic cannot touch on. Also, for my own sake. But let me address your point. I can state with certainty that you do not know what 'knowing' is. What does it take to know something? If you answ
  10. Concentrate on your prayers. Keep them regular and devoted. Praying will fix your life, this is a promise.
  11. You don't seem to understand the role death plays in religion. Death is not a punishment (in most cases). If 200 thousand people drown, that is not God punishing them. That is them dying. Although I do understand what you are saying, I am stating that this is something that is very difficult to say because we are not omniscient, omnipotent or benevolent. How do you know what the behaviour of all powerful being who has limitless qualities in all possible attributes? The bold statement is incorrect. Suffering is not needless - it has great benefits. Ask a monk. This question is far m
  12. I do not believe a benevolent God should give us rewards without having to earn it. Should you be given anything in life that you do not deserve? Do you expect to be given riches and fame for doing nothing? You seem to fail to see the value in suffering. Suffering, itself, is not something we seek. But when faced with suffering it gives us the opportunity to grow and become wiser. Do you not see any value in this? Your argument is based on what God can do. Because you see more value in something God could do, it does not mean you know that that would be the best course. This is not somet
  13. I, too, don't see any strength in the evil argument. There are far stronger arguments an atheist can make. Evil, to an extent, is very subjective. As the above post states, when can we draw the line as to what evil is? Can someone not claim it to be unjust that an all powerful being has not given all power to someone else? Or that His power has not been shared equally? Remember to be 'evil' there needs to be context. In addition, I find it unfortunate how most atheists expect a worldly answer for a question that really can only be understood outside of our sphere. As believers, it is our b
