I Am Fascinated By Science, Religion, and Philosophy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,800 People

    I have studied many religions

    and practices. I believe everyone is entitled to their beliefs as long as they don't hurt others with said beliefs. Science is fascinating since it shows how all humans have the right to live and live well.

    The God Hypothesis

    I can't explain God, not in the way rationalists want me to, and better men than me have tried and failed. I admit that much. But I can 'talk about' and come at the problem of His existence obliquely; how I understand Him and explain Him to myself, why He makes sense to me. I...

    The Fourth DimensionWhat does it mean to be

    truly enlightened. Wikipedia has dozens of definitions for the word enlightened, not a single one describing what I mean. So I assume the correct phrase would be spiritual enlightenment. Wikipedia refers to this as a full comprehension of a situation. I say it loudly to myself...

    Science has been given too much credit.

    It has become a religion for modern societies. Religio means a bind or a link between man and God. Scientific pursuits before the 17th century used to be this link. When man severed this link, but taking his own being as the measure of truth, that was the day when our vision...

    Which Is A More Plausible Explanation For The Order We See In Our World And The Universe?

    "When confronted with the order and beauty of the universe and the strange coincidences of nature, it's very tempting to take the leap of faith from science into religion. I am sure many physicists want to. I only wish they would admit it." - Tony Rothman "I still have a vivid...

    As far as I know, God never authored a book.

    "Live this way" by God "Here's why things are" by God It seems to me, all religious texts are treated as if they were, in fact, penned by God himself, which is certainly not the case. Religious texts seem intent on two things. Assert rules to live by, and explain why things...

    Teleological and causal relationship might look like a coin-flip away - but they are world apart, metaphysically. I live to eat. I eat to live. This is a classic example of purpose versus cause. The purpose for me living is in order that I may eat - a very materialistic - and...
