I have heard from Christians on here that all animals on Earth were herbivores before the Original Sin brought evil (and apparently carnivory) into the world. I have also heard that, prior to the fall, God gave us dominion over the animals for use as, amongst other things, food.
Was that dominion given before or after the Original Sin? How does that work?11 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago
Sure, there are situations where an Anonymous avatar is justified, but when I see one in R&S I automatically think troll (and, judging by the “questions”, not without justification). What’s your take on the Anonymous Infestation?16 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago
When theists say that their deity is not part of the physical world and therefore we can't expect scientific evidence of its existence...?
What are they basing this claim on? Is there evidence to support their statement, or is it just personal belief/apologetics?16 AnswersReligion & Spirituality6 years ago
If the evils of this world are the result of the Original Sin, does that mean that before the Fall the world was perfect?
If so, what made Eden a "paradise" in comparison?
Assuming creation is true, how do you, as a creationist, know that it was the work of your particular deity?
Many religions have creation myths associated with a creator deity or deities. Please explain why creation could only have been the work of your deity of choice.

If the Original Sin led to all of the unpleasant things we see around us (as was claimed in a recent question)...?
then why was Eden considered a Paradise? This suggests that conditions outside of Eden were less than perfect, meaning that unpleasant conditions existed before the original sin... So how does that work?7 AnswersReligion & Spirituality6 years ago

It's just that people keep telling me to repent... but I'm not even sure if I've pented already. Is it possible to repent without penting first?
My deity of choice loves ME, not you. I'M going to heaven, and you're not. Is Christianity just a way to feel special about yourself?

Plenty of Greek deities made the list.
Many of us own pets. Our pets are sometimes naughty and disobedient but most of us wouldn't even think of abusing them for that. Few of us would want them to be tortured for eternity. Our society punishes those who abuse pets. Could God take a few pointers on compassion from us?11 AnswersReligion & Spirituality6 years ago
