  • Atheists, how do you positively, one hundred percent know that there's no undiscovered proof that God exists? Because you haven't discovered?

    that proof yet does not mean the proof can't possibly be there. There's been THOUSANDS of things in the past that mankind had no evidence/proof of the existence of those things (black holes, big bang, certain distant galaxies etc etc etc) .... but because we had not proof/evidence did NOT mean they did not... show more

There's been THOUSANDS of things in the past that mankind had no evidence/proof of the existence of those things (black holes, big bang, certain distant galaxies etc etc etc) .... but because we had not proof/evidence did NOT mean they did not exist. Therefore, because you currently have no evidence/proof God exists does NOT mean that God does not exist. But that's "logic" and atheists aren't very good at logic.

    Best answer: Islam tells to be merciful towards animals.Even during war prophet pbuh emphasised to not hurt animals,plants and trees.The Prophet (Pbuh) made treating animals with compassion a door to reward and entering Paradise. In contrast, he made cruelty to animals as one of the causes that lead to Hell.
    There was a woman who never fed her cat nor did she let it out so it can hunt its food so the cat eventually died and Allah threw this woman in hell for starving the animal to death.Al-Bukhari

    in another sahih hadith , Allah forgave a prostitute becuz she fed water to a panting dog.

    There are so many hadiths on being kind towards animals.prophet Muhammad pbuh and his companions were kindest towards animals.Infact one of the companions of prophet Muhammad pbuh, Abu Hurairah was given that name bcuz of his love for cats. Abu Hurairah means "father of cats"

    I personally love animals and i have got 4 cats.

  • When apologists defend the Biblical endorsement of owning other people as property, do they abandon their humanity and morality?

    Best answer: Some people are idiots.
    Book of Revelation culminates in chapters 19–21, wherein Satan and the ungodly are cast into a lake of fire and brimstone as an eternal punishment:

    REVELATION 21:8
    8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

    Matthew 25:46
    46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

    Matthew 13:50
    50 and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    Mark 9:43
    43 If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.

    Jude 1:7
    7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.

    Matthew 13:42
    41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

    Revelation 19:20
    20 But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

    Revelation 20:13-14
    13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.

    MARK 9"48
    'where the maggots never die and the fire never goes out.'
