My knee has been feeling great, went to a 3 hour movie, kid fell asleep on my it, knee started aching bad and I couldn't really move it. Hurt all through the night. Only feels good when I'm standing and walking around. WTF.
I never said it wasn't. I said that just because it's a major religion that doesn't mean that people should be forced to learn about that religions beliefs. All that really needs to be known is that it's a religion and it influences a lot of people. If someone wants to know more take a class on religion.
The guy 100% has a point. Christianity isn't allowed to be talked about in schools so Islam shouldn't be allowed to be either.
But Christianity and any other religion is allowed to be talked about in schools. They teach about the Protestant reformation in history class and the crusades etc. They teach about Nirvana and they teach about the Greek gods.
School shouldn't be teaching if a religion is right or wrong but there is nothing wrong with learning about religions, and in history it is important to understand some fundamental beliefs to understand the culture of the civilization.
The crucifixion is different in and of itself, but ultimately Jesus is crucified and rises on the 3rd day in GoP.
It claimed he was peaceful and felt no pain, which clearly goes against orthodoxy and gets into gnostic territory and Jesus ascended into heaven right when he came out of the tomb and the cross talked.
You know my favorite part of all of this, is if those gospels actually made it into the Bible, people would fully believe that the Cross actually spoke and would do all kinds of mental gymnastics trying justify the contradictions in the Gospel of Peter as they do with the contradictions in the 4 gospels that did make them in.
Not exactly on this subject, but somewhat related.
I feel their are areas that religion nor science can explain or I guess I should say prove.
Some in the church will say, "it's God" (gaps)
Some naturalists will claim that science has proved some things and will eventually get there in these areas.
Both are committed to their dogmas in my opinion, even without proof
Scientists say the don't know. They look for naturalistic answers because science can only deal with the natural world.
I really have no big problem with a person not knowing the answer to a question and saying they think its either supernatural or natural as long as they also say they don't know what the answer is and if the question is ever answered they are willing to change their belief.
: a belief or set of beliefs that is accepted by the members of a group without being questioned or doubted
: a belief or set of beliefs that is taught by a religious organization
By believing that religious dogma is unequivocally wrong, you have created you own anti-relious dogma.
Dogma=opinion. No matter which side of the fence you pee on.
If you want to call me believing 2+2=4 dogmatic go right ahead.
I have no problem questioning anything, I doubt most things, (i'm a skeptic) and am always willing to change my mind based on evidence, You have a loose definition of dogma if you think the way I am is dogmatic.
