* When you light a candle for someone, you illuminate God's face. * Once a candle is lit, time melts away. * Prayers clean the outside world by cleansing us inside.
I am writing a HSC report on whether or not religion contradicts science (vise versa) and if so whether or not this then affects the way people follow their belief systems. I am Catholic myself, so I am able to think up evidence for the Christian and parts for the Jewish religions. (i.e. '7 days of creation vs. man was created by evolution', 'Jesus born by immaculate conception' & 'Moses parted the red sea' etc.) However I have never really had much exposure to any other major religions (i.e. Hindu, Buddhist or Islamic) I was wondering if people could help me with getting evidence from other religious scriptures (e.g.: Torah etc.) that have been contradicted by modern scientific proofs or theories. Although such discussions may offend people, anyone who can in post evidence of such contradictions from their religion, to include in my report I am in great debt to you. Thanking you in advance, kr8m3r_78
I recommend to everyone who wishes to enter this incredible site about Meditation philosophy, enlightenment, wisdom. This site has given me so much, I hope it will give you too. www.har-tzion.com

The forum let you ask direct to the Master and you can find many interesting answers about spirituality. I recommend it too!!!!
i dont know who said this but its nice.
"not even God can make 2 + 2 equal 5"
Sounds vaguely like Thomas Acquinas. Didn't he write that God will always behave logically because otherwise how could we understand Him enough to worship Him?
Actually there is (false) proof that 1 + 1 = 2. A hidden divide by zero pops up in the middle and most people will not catch it. Of course, now that we have the internet, the falseness of this proof should be known to most people interested in mathematical puzzles....

Hello and thank you for giving me a moment of your busy schedule to read what could be the most important E-mail you have ever received.
If you have no idea about Islam, or you have a bad impression about Islam, without ever learning about Islam from its source, this message is for you.
First, I would like to recommend that you do not take a defensive position from this message. This message must not be considered an attack on your beliefs, a message that must be objected by all means. On the contrary, you are expected to deal with this message with objectivity, fairness, and open mind. This message is for your own worldly and eternal benefit if you give it serious consideration rather than facing it with swift emotional rejection. Let there be no mistake about it, your reaction to this message will likely decide your eternal fate (good or bad).
You are hereby invited to learn more about Islam, and to see for yourself why Islam is the religion of truth, the same religion that all messengers of God "Allah" were sent with, since the father of humanity Adam, followed by Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Mohammad, in addition to other messengers of God peace be upon them all.
Regardless of your religion, or your beliefs, Islam has a lot to offer you, and you have a lot to benefit and nothing to loose from Islam as God "Allah" said in the Quran: "We have verily sent you Mohammad' but a mercy to the creatures."
Contrary to almost all other religions, the more you know about Islam (and the Quran), the more you like it and the more you get convinced that it is not man-made. In Islam, every thing makes sense and we've got nothing to hide in the process of calling people to Islam. The more knowledgeable a person is in Islam, the stronger Muslim he becomes, contrary to people believing in other religions who, the more knowledgeable they become in their faith, the more convinced they get that it can not be God's pure word for the many contradictions, discrepan...
i appreciate and support your right to your beliefs,and i believe that you intend no harm. however,Islam just like every other religion with global reach has waged war againest other religions and peoples it considers infidels. Islam also treats women as a sub species and even through the thought of having many wives who are completely sub-servient to my will has a certain appeal i still cannot accept the enslavement of my mother or sisters in the name of my own selfish gain. i reject islam and ALL other faith based religions and reserve the right to think for myself!!! if there truly was any all powerful god who was the least bit concerned with the actions of each individual member of his flock then surely he (or she) would prohibit senseless killing and brutality in his name?????? people are sheep and religion is a useful tool in keeping them in line but as for myself i'm not joining any flocks and i'm content with being my own sheperd.

I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty -- I call it the one mortal blemish of mankind. [Select]
However I think of Christianity as herpes of the human kind. It can be harmless enough but turns ugly if left untreated. Humanity has contracted it cca. 2000 years ago and it still keeps comming back. Kathryn
the simple fact that all religions are jealous of all other religions should be sufficent proof of the basic falsehoods inherant in each. the only logical choices i see for mankind are one universal religion or no religion at all but a true acceptance of all people as brothers and sisters worthy of help and understanding. it is with great sadness that i confess my belief that there are simply too many humans and too few resources for all the worlds people to share equally at this time. the human species has raped and pillaged this planet,its resources,and its other species to the point of no return,and i fear we will continue down this same path until nature,the universe,or we ourselves construct our own destruction!! perhaps at that time in the future the survivors will be forced to work togather for survival and their decendants will learn and profit from our mistakes?? i hope so but i certainly wouldn't bet on it.

Sounds like Nietsche"s syphilis was already affecting his brains by the time he wrote this. Later, it killed him. Ironical for a man who had no sex life other than a visit to the prostitutes of Tubingen during his student days.
