  1. Here is the link to the debate I mentioned in the previous post: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mg7rYJxHA4Y
  2. Here is how I look at the Resurrection apologetics. And I do recommend you watch or listen to a debate on the Resurrection by Arif Ahmed and Gary Habermaas. I think Arif has very clever arguments against the resurrection. Basically, what Christians are doing, they are knocking down all the natural explanations (stolen body, swoon theory, mass hallucinations) and knocking them down as something that is highly unlikely. And then they propose a supernatural resurrection as the only viable alternative. However, as Arif argued, this conclusion is pre-mature, because once you are open to the su
  3. You know, I can be calm thinking about my own death, but if I see it on the horizon or if docs start telling me I only have X months/years to live, then the fear becomes more intense. lol. I left USSR when I was a teen, but I can't believe people of older ages survived without functioning bathrooms, especially the females. Public restrooms were very rare. For example, I don't remember there being a bathroom in Kiev Metro. If you had to go, you'd have to get out and find something quick. Maybe that's why the underground passageways often smelled like a clogged bathroom.
  4. Good question. I've listened to Ben Shapiro a while ago, and he mentioned that in the US, the Republicans ("right-wingers") are typically anti mask mandates, but in Israel, it's the liberals who are anti masks. I have not verified this claim, to be honest, but I believe it because it matches with my experience. Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat from Hawaii said that in Washington, new Dems and Republicans are told to block together. So they are voting for or a against along the party lines. Somethings, they vote NO on something they themselves pushed for earlier but now that it's being pushed by
  5. I saw that I can't edit my posts, so I'll add that the same author for www.GodIsImaginary.com also created www.WhyWontGodHealAmputees.com site. He used to have chat forums as well. I like his style of arguing for Gods being imaginary. Of course, these arguments only work for Gods that make promises to answer prayers or otherwise intervene in human affairs.
  6. Thanks, if I may ask, how do you guys like and react to posts? I figured it's a feature I have to either earn or purchase, right?
  7. Thanks for the warm welcome. I appreciate this site and the community.
  8. Yep, you are right. However, consider the element of control. Self driving vehicles are said to be safer vs the traditional vehicles. However, many people are scared of riding in the self driving vehicle because they relinquish control. And the chance of an accident is never zero percent. I think people that refuse vaccines have a similar thinking pattern. The risk of death from a vaccine is never zero and they would rather take their chances with nature.
  9. This is partly why I'm identifying with Conservatives (US) even though I'm not religious. I do like Canadian Jordan Peterson. It seems to me that the American Left can do and say anything and be okay. But a right winger better keep their mouth shut.
  10. That's a pretty cool story and translation. Only one typo that I noticed Последние десять лет я женат на русском. It's actually incorrect unless the person is married to a man. In Russian, there are different endings for male, female and plural. So this highlighted bit makes it look like the story teller, himself a male is married to a Russian man. Correct translation would be a Последние десять лет я женат на русской. As far as persecutions go, I think it depended on the local authorities in a large part. I know of some Christians who moved to Estonia or other Baltic repu
  11. I was born in September of 1976, in the USSR, Kiev City that now is the capital of Ukraine. I’m the oldest of my 3 siblings. 1970s were the years of Christian persecution. I don’t remember the 70s much, but I do remember mid 1980s, with Gorbachev coming into power as the time of more freedoms for the Christians, especially the late 1980s that saw public preaching in the streets. As fate would have it, my parents were very active in the Evangelical Baptist church. My dad was very close with the Senior Pastor and my mom sang in the choir. Those of you from the US may not appreciate the
  12. Personally, I think the afterlife became necessary to keep the faith in God of the Old Testament because the promises that rewarded faithfulness to the law (of Moses) did not pan out. So, either become atheists or re-define the promises.
  13. Thanks for all the responses and the welcome. I'm finding myself fearing the possibility of Hell, possibility of being wrong and this scares me. I'm not sure how much of this is biological (anxiety runs in the family and I was a very fearful kid and a fearful Christian), but I definitely want to work on this as none of us is guaranteed tomorrow.
