Augustine and His Confessions

Anyone who has read Augustine's Confessions will know his views on God. One view that I have been thinking about is how God is unchanging. One thing God must not have, to fit this description (according to Augustine), is emotions. This is something that many Christians and Catholics would agree with. However, there is a problem because in the Bible there is evidence of God having emotions. Take the First of the Ten Commandments:



“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any… Continue

A Philosophical View

I enjoy looking at a variety of views on both theism and atheism. One argument that has intrigued me is the problem of evil which goes something like this:

Premise 1.) If God exists, then there would be no evil (immoral actions) in the world.

Premise 2.) There is (are) evil (immoral actions) in the world.

Conclusion: God does not exist.



This is a strong argument in favor of Atheism, however many would try to attack the first premise which we shall call (1). I have been… Continue

A Day in the Sun

The Sun is a mass of fiery stone, a little larger than Greece. ~ Anaxagoras 434 BCE The Vengeance of God

Nahum 1:1 to 3:1



1:1 The burden of Nineveh and all of the associated imaginings in the mind of a guy named Nahum.



God is jealous. God is revengeful. God is furious. So then, we've established that God is jealous, revengeful, and furious. He is slow to anger…

Christians, Stop Using the "Well there were eyewitnesses" Defense

As I enter more and more into the debate world, there is a peculiar phenomena that I find when debating Christians. It is the belief that eyewitness testimony is at all reliable. Especially so when it comes to the divinity of Yeshua (Jesus). Unfortunately this is completely wrong when it comes to proving the bibles validity. There is no presupposition here. It's pure fact from study and research. Let's take a look at the account that Christians give when it comes to the Bibles historic content… Continue

Jonah 1:1 to 4:1



1:1 Once upon a time there was a Jewish guy named Jonah. The Lord talked Jonah. He said "Jonah, go over there to that extremely distant city of Nineveh. Let the Ninnies know that I have noticed their wickedness, even from way over here. I’m not blind. And I'm not just watching and judging…

My Dad

Today I ran a half marathon.  When I crossed the finish line, I saw my dad running to me.  His arms were wide open and he had the biggest smile on his face.  These are the memories of my dad that I love.  I've run races before and in less time, but he couldn't be there.  I think, for him, having the time to see his kids meeting goals in life is precious and thrilling.  He, of course, calls these moments, "gifts from god," but I don't care what he calls it, so long as he is there and…

A true lady takes off her dignity with her clothes and does her whorish best. ~ Robert Heinlein Reaping the Whirlwind

Hosea 1:2 to 8:7

Pledge of Allegiance problem in school

Hiya. My name is Ash...

I go to a high school  in the state of Georgia, and I am currently taking AP US History.

I do not say the pledge, and I do not stand.

I do not say it because I know America is not "under God" and I know there is not "liberty and justice for all."

I choose not to stand because I don't want to stand for a country, that I believe, does not stand for me.

I have not stood for the pledge since 8th grade, and I'm currently in 11th. I have never had any…

Speech I gave about God

 

In my public speaking class, we were assigned to write a speech. The speech needed to use either facts or emotional appeal to persuade the audience. I wrote this in a very short amount of time. Haha... I got one slow clap by a nice girl in my class. A boy in the front row said he lost all respect for me. What do you guys think of it?
