 Forum: Politics, Philosophy, and Religion   Topic: If God exists, why does He hide from us?

It just occurred to me. God is not hiding. Most of us are just blind. I agree God is not hiding. He is keeping a rather low profile and not making his existance very obvious, and I think he has a very good reason for doing so. He even took physical birth. Do you mean Jesus? If so he is not keeping ...

There were three threads on this topic about a year ago that were all sabotaged by garbage posts lead by the Strident Atheists; however, since the SA's have been quiet lately, (and seem to have mostly gone away(thank God)), I thought it might be worth trying again; of course, the newer atheists coul...

Well, I'd say that the "end times" mentioned by Jesus in the gospels began at Pentecost. I have to disagree with you there Angel. Pentecost was the beginning of the age, Antichrist will not come until it is ending. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Su...

It's an as-yet unfulfilled prophecy. Agreed, the Antichrist (as this fellow is usually called) will not come until the end and as I read the times, we are in the very beginning of the end and have been for about half a century. Since (at least in our opinion) he hasn't been born yet, it is a little...

I see original sin as the separation between is and ought. Agreed, but you don't say what the difference is. Human nature is centered around ME ; however when Jesus came to Earth as a man he started the work of creating a second human nature, one that is centered around Mankind and all the other cr...

The other thing you could do is log out, then you could see the results of polls.

And what of Sand? I wonder if he is still among the living. He said he was in his 80's. After a certain age, waking up in the morning is a Gift. Sand is still with us. If you check his profile you will see that he still visits here regularly. I guess he said everything he had to say to us and finds...

If I may get back on topic for a moment: It seems to me that there are really two type of religious discussions on PPR. Bold mine: I think the problem is that there is no such thing as a religious discussion in PPR, there are only debates. A debate requires at least two participants; a discussion on...

This topic is too broad and would be absurd even if it was narrowed down to why does a specific person hold a specific religious belief. I have always found it amusing the way so many people are more apt to analyze the motives behind other peoples beliefs and actions than they are their own. Can Tal...

Ragtime's belief in the existence of Absolute Truth is based on logic and the logic is sound. I either exist or I do not, it cannot be neither and it cannot be both; there may be differences of opinion on which is true but only one can be true. Opinion is simply each persons perception of truth and ...

I have a personal policy against offering an opinion in any topic where the OP has not which is why I only voted in this poll, without comment, when it first appeared. I could have made an exception, in this case, because I read the last thread Ragtime started on this topic and I can make a pretty g...

I was not seeking to hurt Ragtime's feelings. I would hope that, with time, and with his happiness with his new wife, he would soon be over the past. What are you trying to do? Do you think bringing this up and continuing to harp on it, when Ragtime obviously would rather not discuss it, is going t...

With regard to the Berkeley 'chapter', many student organizations (e.g. fraternities, sororities) are encouraged to and expected to take up a cause, especially activities involved in fundraising for charities. There may not be much understanding (or need to understand) about autism in an organizati...

Shame on you Gnostic Movement Teachers. Shame on you. This sounds like you are judging all gnostic teachers based on one guy. I never read Mark Pritchard's book and I am not much interested in the opinions of someone who named himself after the prince of the demons. :roll: In addition to the book H...

Most (if not all) of the responces on this topic so far (including my earlier one) have been about being changed or changing other people; how about changing yourself? Likely enough, if you really knew yourself—saw your own dim character, perpetually at the mercy of its environment; your true motive...
