by Interfaith

According to a recent Pew survey, 50% of US Catholics believe the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ, that is, they believe in the Transubstantiation. The other half — a staggering 50% — think the change is ‘symbolic’. Fr Dwight Longernecker — from whom I’ve filched this article — suggests a […]

by Interfaith

This follows from a discussion elsewhere, but as it is off-topic on that thread, I thought I might start a new one, and hope to keep the discussion on track. The salient point was this: Tony Bristow-Stagg said: As an example, to offer in all sincerity the Oneness of God and the Oneness of humanity […]




There is no proof of God …

by Interfaith

… therefore God does not exist. This statement fails on two points of logic. The first is that of an Argument from Ignorance. This is when we illegitimately appeal to ignorance to support a conclusion. It usually takes the following form: “No one has proven not A, therefore A is true,” or “No one has proven […]

Universalism

by Interfaith

Although I am a non-theistic Buddhist, I have become quite an expert on Christian Universalism (technical word apokatastasis) this being the teaching that eventually all will be saved and all things will be reconciled “in Christ”.

The Myth of Progress

by Interfaith

Drawn from from Seven Types of Atheism by John Gray, (Chapter 2: “Secular Humanism: A Sacred Relic”, Penguin, 2019, p23-27) My comments in (bold) “While rejecting monotheism, the belief that humans are gradually improving, a central article of faith of modern humanism, is founded on pseudo-Christian monotheistic idealism.” For the ancient world, time was seen as cyclic, […]
