Religious Opinion

This section features religious opinion on many religious subjects by those who are recognized as knowledgeable in the many religions of the world. Credit is given to the author and to where this opinion was originally expressed.

Many diverse subjects and opinions will be discussed.

These articles express opinions that are a result of deep thought and religious belief but it is a given that as strongly as one believes it is truly unknowable until the time of death where perhaps to the religious “all will be known” or there will be “nothing”.

As is other than learned or acquired faith there is no actual evidence only what is believed to be documented truths from previous times and to many this is accepted as evidence because of mass popularity and/or social acceptance.

Atheists do not believe in a God or any other greater power as there is no scientific evidence of such.

Many who believe that man is made in the image of God discount the mathematical improbability of such when you ponder the size of the universe. Many believe there is as much chance that we are an isolated biological accident that will soon go extinct as many species have before us.

My truth is that the origins of existence are truly beyond human understanding and no one can claim to have informed knowledge on this subject, just uninformed opinion.

It is believed by many of the faithful that God offers free will to all believers and that includes free will to do evil. Many ask the question why. Many ask why we must exist here on earth before ascending to a heaven.

Many believe the religious thought that all that was the earth was given to humans to do with as we see fit. It is believed that this is the overriding factor as to why we are in our present situation of over population and diminishing resources.

After all if we are made in the image of God is it not out god given right to use all resources as if these resources will be forever available. We don’t see the varied religions of the world preaching to us to practice any type of conservation.
