    Controversial Young Canadians Increasingly Shunning Religious Institutions

    I am not sure, but I think to naturally see if the Islamic "institutions" are truly gaining momentum compared to other religions a person has to study an overwhelmingly Islamic country, state by state (similiar to how canada is or was an overwhelmingly christian nation). Because I think the...

    Controversial Young Canadians Increasingly Shunning Religious Institutions

    Either the institution will adapt to accomadate the shift in interpretations of Morality or challenge the the shift itself, or it will downsize...proof of this is the noticeable evolution of the catholic church. The religious institution is a product on a marketplace like anything...

    Atheism Would An Atheist Pray In A Life And Death Situation?

    Hello Navdeep Ji, How can I be "intelligent" when my only claim to knowledge is that I know nothing but believe in something? How can my intention be to be "correct" whenever I speak? It is unfortunate that you think I speak from some hyper-rational robotic perspective, because each of...

    Atheism Would An Atheist Pray In A Life And Death Situation?

    Believe in anything you want, and describe it with whatever language you wish and do it with an honest vigor for any emotion related to any experience you wish to express (that is life). That is not my quarrel and never will be. But to act as if your belief is akin to some cosmic wisdom that...

    Atheism Would An Atheist Pray In A Life And Death Situation?

    You asked a very convoluted question, that I have been studying for a long time. What I think you have also asked me to do is to give perspective on the human condition, a subject of great difficulty. (but relates to this thread) The simplest answer is that uncertainty does not fail to...

    Atheism Would An Atheist Pray In A Life And Death Situation?

    what is odd...the prime dividing force (the prime causation) between the divide of the divine and the profane is also its greatest unifier. uncertainty both states are products of uncertainty (a desire to rid oneself of this suspended state) where not knowing is the real problem rather...

    General The McGurk Effect

    in summary Seeing is not always believing and Believing is not always seeing question: If i "see" it do i have to believe that i saw it or is it possible to see it and then believe that i did not see it...in which case...you saw nothing...or saw something you did not believe? "we men are...

    Atheism Would An Atheist Pray In A Life And Death Situation?

    Navdeep Ji, I found his post to be more "natural" than yours. Jasbir ji's post showed genuine feelings that i related to. Why should we pray on our deathbed? shouldn't we rejoice and be happy, enjoying the few moments left with our family/comrades and celebrating, what an atheist would term...
