Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Why is the Scientific Study of the existence of God warranted?
Design Arguments for the Existence of God | Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
The answer lies in two alarming biases: Restricted Science and Creation Teaching. Restricted Science. Over the last century there has been a concerted effort to eliminate any discussion of God or any hypothesis regarding Fundamental Intelligence from the Scientific Study of the Universe and the Laws of Nature. Restricted Science limits the study of the Origin of the Universe and Life to a singular belief: it was the result of a random spontaneous, accident. Restricted Science prevents public classroom discussion of a Superior Intelligence in the Universe. The Scientific evidence of a Fundamental Intelligent Being is compelling.
Open Scientific Study of all creation concepts is essential if we are to understand the Laws of Nature. Limiting Scientific discussion for any reason is Bad Science. God's existence is a Matter of Fact, and therefore must be open to Scientific Study. Creation Teaching. We Teach Creation in Public Schools every day! Concepts such as the Theory of Everything and the Grand Unified Theory are introduced in an attempt to answer the fundamental questions of Life. Where did we come from and why are we here? Ironically, the evidence for such Fundamental Intelligence is overwhelming.
Yet we are not allowed to discuss these concepts in public school science classrooms as part of the study of the work in which Darwin introduced this process, The Origin of Species.

As I sit here in my office surrounded by piles of scientific books, I can't find a single reference to the soul, or any notion of an immaterial, eternal essence that occupies our being.

Indeed, a soul has never been seen under an electron microscope, nor spun in the laboratory in a test tube or ultra-centrifuge. According to these books, nothing appears to survive the human body after death. While neuroscience has made tremendous progress illuminating the functioning of the brain, why we have a subjective experience remains mysterious.
The problem of the soul lies exactly here, in understanding the nature of the self, the "I" in existence that feels and lives life. But this isn't just a problem for biology and cognitive science, but for the whole of Western natural philosophy itself. Of course, this will not surprise many of the philosophers and other readers who, contemplating the works of men such as Plato, Socrates and Kant, and of Buddha and other great spiritual teachers, kept wondering about the relationship between the universe and the mind of man.
Recently, biocentrism and other scientific theories have also started to challenge the old physico-chemical paradigm, and to ask some of the difficult questions about life: Is there a soul? Does anything endure the ravages of time? Life and consciousness are central to this new view of being, reality and the cosmos. Although the current scientific paradigm is based on the belief that the world has an objective observer-independent existence, real experiments suggest just the opposite. We think life is just the activity of atoms and particles, which spin around for a while and then dissipate into nothingness.
But if we add life to the equation, we can explain some of the major puzzles of modern science, including the uncertainty principle, entanglement, and the fine-tuning of the laws that shape the universe. Consider the famous two-slit experiment. When you watch a particle go through the holes, it behaves like a bullet, passing through one slit or the other. But if no one observes the particle, it exhibits the behavior of a wave and can pass through both slits at the same time.
They're statistical predictions — nothing but a likely outcome. Until observed, they have no real existence; only when the mind sets the scaffolding in place, can they be thought of as having duration or a position in space. Experiments make it increasingly clear that even mere knowledge in the experimenter's mind is sufficient to convert possibility to reality. Many scientists dismiss the implications of these experiments, because until recently, this observer-dependent behavior was thought to be confined to the subatomic world.
However, this is being challenged by researchers around the world. In fact, just this year a team of physicists Gerlich et al, Nature Communications , showed that quantum weirdness also occurs in the human-scale world. They studied huge compounds composed of up to atoms, and confirmed that this strange quantum behavior extends into the larger world we live in. Importantly, this has a direct bearing on the question of whether humans and other living creatures have souls. Space and time are simply the mind's tools for putting it all together. Now, to the amusement of idealists, scientists are beginning dimly to recognize that those rules make existence itself possible.
Indeed, the experiments above suggest that objects only exist with real properties if they are observed. You can learn more about Biocentrism at www. Interestingly, this article states objects behave differently upon observation. They appear the way they are based on our mind's perception. Ultimately our perception and observation gives meaning. Thus, bringing a new meaning to the phrase "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound.
If you had the faith of a mustard seed, you could tell this mountain to uproot itself and dive into the ocean Have you read of people of great faith who drank the most toxic stuff to prove God protects them? It worked, they lived and nothing was wrong. What about a mother who lifts up an entire car to save her child?
What about certain religious people putting knives into there body and brain to show their faith with no negative results. What about the documented cases in India and Nepal of people who didn't eat for years? What about the documented cases of people living in the snowy mountains of the Himalayas with hardly any clothing for years? You want to believe it, yet something scares you, it shakes your every believe, yet, this doesn't mean it isn't true.
People fantasize themselves to better health, that makes fantasy reality and a force to acknowledge. What am I afraid of? I'm comfortable with saying I don't know. I don't need to believe in a bunch of unprovable made-up myths to get through life. Your thought process is sound. I wouldn't have called it "made up myths", though. Don't be condescending just because you don't believe it. Their opinions are just as valid as yours. I like your last sentence.
Asking what they're afraid of. To me, it's simply being afraid of being wrong. What if there is more after death and because you or me or whoever didn't take it seriously we were not given entry or were punished? It's a legitimate question that could have extremely important consequences. It's a question each one of us will have to answer at some point in our lives. One can have opinions about matters of taste. One cannot legitimately hold opinions about matters of fact. And you are still assuming a "FACT" that has not been established.
In actual sense, we r afraid of our mentality That means we think that if we will do these than and only than god will protect us Do you actually have any evidence of these events at all? I'm not denying a god's existence and I have no intention of offending you in any way whatsoever, but could you link these events or explain any possible scientific out look on these things? I'm only trying to look at things objectively here, I bare no ill intent.
These stories have either been proven hoax or the proof is in the eye of the beholder rather then scientific proof having gone through the scientific method. In other words show this proof you speak of. Just one example would be that guy you think didn't eat anything for a year. I did some research on it. For the most part they are just taking his word on it. It's not done under laboratory conditions and he could have easily cheated. That not proof. Faith is gullibility. In Matthew He gave a servant back to his master to be tortured because he went out and tried to strangle another servant for owing him money.
Not only does Jesus endorse slavery but he also endorses slave abuse. Nowhere does Jesus endorse slavery or slave abuse. Try reading the gospels for yourself instead of misrepresenting an atheist writer's misreading of a parable Jesus allegedly told. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place.
If a person believes in Jesus Christ, he should be consistent and believe that the Old Testament and its accounts are correct. And if Jesus also denounced parts of the Old Testament then he is a hypocrite and not worthy of respect, much less worship. Stick to science, science boy.
You have tried to make a new case for why no one should respect or worship Jesus that has little at all to do with your first claim that Jesus supports slavery. You clearly have little basic Christian understanding of how Jesus is said to have fulfilled the Old Testament law, and that all of the laws of the prophets are summed up in Jesus' two instructions to love your neighbour as yourself and love God with all your heart and soul and mind.
A black and white literalist approach to myth and theology is a lazy approach, as varying grades of priority and emphasis can readily be drawn from ancient scriptures usually but not always for good, alas. Anyway, it's all mythology, in my opinion, so you know as little about whether or not Jesus was a trustworthy guy based on what made it into what is now considered canonical as I or anyone else does. And either way, your first claim remains false. When you wrote your lovely comment trying to defend your lovely god who says that he love us, ppls died, or more, kids, parents, religious ppls and atheists maybe When you will prove me dragons existed I do not know what you are talking about regarding people being saved?
Your reading comprehension cannot be very good either as I stated above that it is all myth in my opinion. I am not defending my "lovely god" as I don't believe in God or gods. I was merely correcting a poster who doesn't know what he is talking about.

But I'm flattered that you find my comments "lovely"! Jesus did indeed support the old testament as good and holy and necessary. He and his apostles even welcomed slaves in as fellow brothers in Christ. So, God introduced the old testament law that, for the time of the old testament, at least legislated better treatment of slaves, changing things at a pace people could better manage while still challenging them to change. If a baby is just starting to crawl, you don't expect them to suddenly jump up and run the Boston marathon. If you seriously have to go through that much effort and justification in order to support your own belief, I'd wager it isn't the case.
Occam's Razor, my friend. There are multiple verses in the Bible endorsing and supporting slavery including the new testament if you don't know this then clearly you haven't read it as much as you think, or you just nit pick what you want to believe either way Google it and you will find the verses. You are an intelligent person, Iffy But you must realize that you're only referencing half the parable here.
The king didn't punish the servant and reinstate the debt until the servant refused to be charitable like he had been, until the servant refused to show that same forgiveness for a much smaller debt.
