Science and the Soul 83 Replies

It is curious that so little scientific attention is given to exploration of Self.  It may be that the Self (Human Consciousness) is too closely aligned with metaphysical/mystical concepts of Soul and Mind to get funding – separation of church and state and all that good stuff.   In 1970s, Dr Benjamin Libet undertook neurological research that observed when the brain was directly stimulated with degrees of electric current, the stimulus…Read More

Choices

All of us who have been sealed into the body of Christ wants God to be pleased with the decisions that we make, but God has given us the freedom to make our own choices. God want us to apply scripture, where scripture can be applied, and where no scriptural principle can be applied, to make the choices that we desire and then take responsibility for choices we made. If we cannot find doctrine in Paul’s epistles directly related to our situation and there are no scriptural principles we can find…Read More

Aniconism - Is it a Christian Practice because it avoids Idolatry ? 14 Replies

When you pray and worship, do you have an image that runs through your mind?  An image of God?  An image of Jesus? An image of the Holy Spirit?  If so, do these images come from a picture in a book, a movie, a painting, the Shroud of Turin... a podcast from "The Son of God" movie... wherever.... the point being, they are images.  So, if you mentally project these images during prayer or worship are they graven?  What mental images do you have, that are not graven, that you see when you pray?dbRead More

"Is Jesus a myth? Is Jesus just a copy of the pagan gods of other ancient religions?" Zeitgeist & other sources. 32 Replies

"Is Jesus a myth? Is Jesus just a copy of the pagan gods of other ancient religions?"Answer: There are a number of voices claiming that the accounts of Jesus as recorded in the New Testament are simply myths and were the result of the writers borrowing stories from pagan mythology, such as the stories of Osiris, Dionysus, Adonis, Attis, and Mithras. The claim is that these mythological figures are essentially the same story as what the New Testament ascribes to Jesus Christ of Nazareth. As Dan…Read More

Truth & Near-Death Experiences 17 Replies

I've just received a polite request from a member of this forum to provide him with "any relevant recent scientific evidence of NDE other than mere patient hearsay". So I'll answer him here in equally polite terms, even knowing that his politeness is probably a mere tactic, ha ha.First, let's examine his words. He is asking for scientific evidence of subjective experiences – those that are dependend on the mind for its existence. Let's now take Khem's suggestion and ask: suppose there are 340…Read More

Where Do Thoughts Come From? 205 Replies

What is Consciousness?  Where does it come from?  Either matter produces consciousness (thoughts) or the illusion of consciousness else consciousness is a function of the soul.  The first paradigm is rooted in a materialistic view that all that exists is matter.   The second assumes that in addition to matter there is a metaphysical reality that is beyond or in addition to that experienced in the physical universe.Does the brain produce consciousness and the illusion of self within the…Read More
