What happens after we die?
Does everything just end?
Or, is there something that comes after this life?
Who hasn’t asked themselves these questions?
Equally plausible is many have never given it a thought.
In this compelling video, Dennis Prager deals with the issue of the afterlife head on.
This is one I’ve always found interesting, the most ardent believers in God and an after life if given the choice would take the next plane to get there.
So many books and treatises have been written on this topic, it’s mind-boggling.
Uses any search engine and it will become very clear.
One question I’ve had, would a just and loving God have permitted Catholic priests to abuse their alter boys?
There appears to be an equal number of articles written to support the concept or to deny the existence.
My question, if God were all that powerful, why does he allow for protracted wars, the death, suffering and injuries both physical and mental to persist?
I’m dealing with this topic at more of a layman’s guide and not that of those who have spent a lifetime dealing with this concept.
Why for instance to Muslim Jihadists prefer dying during their commission of jihad?
Is Allah, their God so much different from the God most Americans choose to believe?
It would seem that most who consider themselves scholars of Islam and the promise of 72 virgins in the afterlife scoff at this concept.
If so, are Muslims being lied to by the verses in the Qur’an?
This topic is not one to laugh about, but on this topic I frequently do!
Some believe in the teachings of Charles Darwin from his book, “The Origin of the Species,” while most people don’t.
Almost 160 years after Charles Darwin publicized his groundbreaking theory on the development of life, Americans are still arguing about evolution.
In spite of the fact that evolutionary theory is accepted by all but a small number of scientists, it continues to be rejected by many Americans.
In fact, about one-in-five U.S. adults reject the basic idea that life on Earth has evolved at all.

And roughly half of the U.S. adult population accepts evolutionary theory, but only as an instrument of God’s will.
I consider myself an agnostic who prays to God and Jesus many times a day and when I go to sleep at night.
After studying “Religions of the World ” the most difficult course I had ever taken I go with what Dr. Strickland taught us.
Organized religion is man’s way of a the unknown which tends to make the believer more comfortable with his personal lot on earth.
Thus, we deify the unknown.
This of course led to more church dogma and if the individual want’s a box seat in heaven, he tithes more.
