Life And It's Meaning

AnnonEMoos
YouNeedToListenToMe

We are born, Knowing death is inevitable, Yet fighting every day looking for new ways to live, And still somehow it still feels like we're all trapped by invisible forces at play. So what is the solution to the paradox of life? I believe finding new boxes to escape might just be the answer....

We should not worship God

anders1319
Dr.Franklin

This is not an argument about whether or not God exists. Instead, I'm assuming that the Abrahamic interpretation of God is true while asserting that it would be morally wrong to worship him. The first round is for accepting, And the last round must not have any new arguments....

Death, A good thing or a bad thing.

BIlalBalhawan
Dr.Franklin

The good thing about death is that there will no longer be a need for body maintenance. By "body maintenance, " I mean doctors and dentists appointments and all the things you have to do to your face, Skin, And teeth every morning and night just to stay healthy. In death, You can let everything go. And it will. (Of course, I could also argue that I'm lucky to have doctors and dentists to take care of me. You see how the gratitude attitude seeps into your bones? )...

Why don't christians give equality to those who are gay? The bible doesn't nor does its god

backwardseden
Longinus

Why don't christians give equality to those who are gay? There's no "why"? Since there's no "why", I get it, I really do. . . If this invisible man were to tap you on the shoulders in the middle of your street and tell you to jump into a volcano of ever spewing ash and lava, Why by gum you'd do it. So yeah, YOU MUST follow what leviticus 20:13 when it demands death as is true with soooo many other verses. And no, You cannot invent silly little excuses. Do what your bible says. Or does your pukin...
