Jainism - the most peaceful religion

Post #1

Post by Compassionist »

As far as I know, Jainism is the most peaceful religion on Earth. Jains have never conquered others through violence. They are very strict vegetarians and committed pacifists.

To me, the Bible is false and unethical. My conclusions are based on evidence and ethical reasoning.


Okay, could you give an example of something you believe to be "false" in the bible?




JW
The two creation stories in Genesis are both false. http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/contra/accounts.html We were not created. We evolved in a reality which does not care about ethics. The rule in this reality is: "Might is right, adapt or die." That's why 99.9% of all the species to evolve so far on Earth are already extinct.

No, there are two contradictory creation accounts in the Bible. Please see http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/contra/accounts.html Both are false. Our universe began with the Big Bang https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bang due to Quantum Fluctuation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_fluctuation This is how our solar system formed and evolved https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formation ... lar_System This is how life evolved on Earth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis Here is more information on evolution https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution I am sticking to what we know from science and I have abandoned the fictitious creation stories and other fictitious claims http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/science/long.html of the Bible. If you disagree with the scientific worldview please prove the Bible to be true by presenting incontrovertible evidence that the Bible is true. Thank you ever so much.

No there are not. But that aside, I'm more interested in an example of something you believe to be "false" in the bible. Can you give an example in your own words?

The creation accounts in the Bible are false. Did you read the contents of the websites I referred you to? We can't have a debate if you are not going to examine the evidence I provide you. Please also see https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn ... on-of-life You are yet to provide me with any evidence which proves the Bible to be true. I am also convinced that all the miracles, allegedly performed by Jesus, are false. Please prove to me that they are true. "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." - John 14:12, The Bible (New International Version). I have yet to see any resurrections performed by Christians the way Jesus allegedly did. I am also convinced that the Biblical God is evil and imaginary. Please prove to me that the Biblical God is good and real.

Can you prove that? Can you present your proof in your own words?

I will not be replying any more until you have proven your Bible to be true and your God to be real and good. The Biblical accounts differ from scientific accounts. The scientific accounts are based on evidence. There is no evidence to prove the Biblical accounts. I have already presented you with evidence for the scientific worldview. Please study the contents of the websites I referred you to if you wish me to reply again. I am not trying to convert you out of your religion. I respect everyone's human rights. One of these rights is the freedom to believe in any or no religion. I wish you all the best. Unless you comply with what I have said, you will not get any further replies from me on this topic ever again.
