According to Orthodox Christianity, alienation is the core problem that plagues us in the world, sin is only a symptom of alienation. When we became alienated from God, the author of life, we experience death; when we become alienated from one another we experience temporal divisions; when we become alienated from the self we no longer see ourselves as creatures destined for God but instead become captive to the world. Thoughts on this point of view?

Why do atheists only point out formal logical fallacies when they are committed by theists?
/
With as much as these fuckers study logical fallacies so they scream them out to end debates whenever talking with someone they disagree with you would think they would know to call bullshit when someone says
>"uhhhhh well, inuitively that doesn't seem likely to me...."
Like a Christian can literally say the exact same fucking thing looking at a world that just so happened out of the billions upon billions of possible genetic mutations natural conditions created higher apes capable of complex language and advanced engineering while also all but universally believe fervently in the existence of dieties.
You can appeal to incredulity on ANYTHING.
That is WHY it is a fucking logical falacy, because it isn't based on anything other then your own personal bias.
We live in a universe where light acts a partical in some instances and in others like a wave.
Where the ammount of time that passes is dependent on how fast one is going.
Where the observable universe is held together by forces beyond our understanding given that 90% of the gravity in the universe is in unaccounted for by observable matter.
What you think is likely
>DOES
>NOT
>HAVE
>FUCK
>ALL
>TO
>DO
>WITH
>WHAT
>IS
>TRUE
And you shouldn't have to have that explained to by a fucking theist like me!
You should have recognized this THE MOMENT this fucking dipshit let this horse shit drip feces from his fucking mouth.
No one who has gone to college and gotten a 4 year degree has any fucking business being this fucking retarded.
And yet,
AND YET,
Atheists manage to be in agregate.

Contradictions in Sunni Islam

Islan says all souls are in Barzakh until judgement day (qiyamah) and that hell is currently empty.

Sunni hadith says Mugammad dreamed Abu Lahab was burning in hell and he got relief for giving a slave water.

Sunnis also say Abu Talib is in hell now and having his brains boiled out.

Sunni hadith says angel Gabriel physically rendered Pharoah incapable of vocalising the Shahada by stuffing mud in his mouth because Gabriel was afraid Allah would accept his repentance.

1. Angels don't have free will, they follow Allah's commands, so Allah was scared that Allah would accept pharaoh repenting?

2. This means mute people can't convert to Islam if Pharaoh was prevented from repenting just by mud in his mouth. If you punch someone's teeth out you can consign them to hellfire by this logic since they can't say la ilaha illa allah.

West Africa

Thread for discussing the origin and history of West African Civilization; including its laws, languages, culture, religion, cities, politics, etc.
I'll begin by asking; how exactly did ironworking get introduced into West Africa? and how long after did the first cities appear? did they use iron plows or hoes at all?
