I have very little respect for academic knowledge.outhouse wrote: Academic knowledge is based on evidence and reasoning, not belief with a lack of both.
Yes it serves its own useful purpose, but it lacks the higher levels of faith and revelation and fun.
Still I do know that there is no way to get you or others around that restrictive obstacle of academic knowledge.
I was thinking about such disciplines as Biblical Criticism where the Muslims and Jews are far more open to that, while Christianity is not.outhouse wrote: You are speaking of "some" scientific terms in this context. I disagree with said findings.
The Second Vatican Council under Pope Paul VI (1965) embraced Biblical Criticism but they did not pursue it any further after that.
Of course no religion of any merit accepts the ignorant interpretations of the Biblical Criticism as promoted by the heathen and Atheist and infidels.
In my view reality is another name for God, and reality dictating anything can only be God dictating, of course there must be accurate interpretations.outhouse wrote: Reality dictates factually islam requires more fanaticism and fundamentalism then all combined.
Again - in my view = things like fanaticism and fundamentalism are high virtues to be praised and encouraged.
It is very reasonable that the huge and dynamic growth of Islam nationwide and worldwide is because of those virtues of fanaticism and fundamentalism.
The reason Christianity is so lacking is because it lacks fanaticism and fundamentalism, which is dying off in Christianity.
The entire human race is made up of nuttiness and low character and with widespread ignorance and barbarians.outhouse wrote: All of islam, YEC and orthodox jews have high levels of nuttiness.
Outside of religion is the same and worse.
That is no surprise, because the orthodoxies and the YEC are not correctly based on the true scriptures.outhouse wrote: But orthodox and YEC are minorities in each faith.
