Is there life after death?

Discuss this question

Question found in Bible Studies
I firmly believe, nay I know for sure that there is life after death. A few words to support my views:
1. From time immemorial, people all over the world believed in a life after death as evident in the elaborate burial rituals from around the eworld. Such belief even like the belief in God is something common to humanity. This will not arise without reason.
2. What is created in the image and likeness of God is not the human body
but the human soul. This soul is immortal. Our death is just a transition from the material to the spiritual. As Socrate4s said, "They cannot kill me, as I am immortal. As for my body they can do whatever they want."
3. To say there is no life after death is denying the existence of God and saying that all religions are false. And humanity at all places and times had the firm belief in God and life after death.

In the bible did God the Father or God the Son create the earth?

Discuss this question

Question found in Bible Studies
The Christian concept of the Holy Trinity is not easy to explain or to understand. But from the Holy Scriptures we can say this:
God – The Holy Trinity – Created the world. We could however make the following observations. “The Spirit of God was moving over the waters” (Gen. 1: 2). From this we may say that process of the evolution – the continuing act of creation was carried out by the Holy Spirit. “Through him God made everything.” (John. 1: 3) Here the reference is to the Son, the Word. These passages and Gen. 1:1 tell that Creation was by God, the Holy Trinity.

In the Bible who was or is Melchizedek?

Discuss this question

Question found in Bible Studies
Melchizedek was one of the kings in the regions that the Patriarch Abraham occupied. The Bible refers to him as a ‘priest of the living God’.
He represents all those priests –all those religions – outside Judaism, Christianity of Islam in space and time (Geographically and historically) who worshipped the true God and not just a material object. Melchizedek was outside Israel both in space and time yet he was a priest of the living God. He represents all the true religions out side ‘the people of the Book’

There exists a lowest temperature at 0 Kelvin. Does a maximum temperature exist, when particles achieve light speed?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
To the best of my knowledge there is no upper limit. The temperature of 'singularity' that existed at the earliest stage of the origin of our universe is so far the highest known temperature. Even if a particle reaches the speed of light it will not reach this initial temperature of the matter of our universe at the start of inflation.

Does the reality really exist?

Discuss this question

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
Some cosmologists of today espouse an idea called anthropic principle, according to which ‘the universe won’t be here if we are not here to observe it.’ According to Einstein relativity theories ‘everything – matter, energy space, all – is relative. Nothing is absolute. (I do not claim to understand what these ideas mean.) It seems to me that in this visible universe there is no such thing as absolute reality.
But I have the personal conviction that ‘Absolute Reality exists as that in which this universe and all of us exist, as that which made all these and to which all these will return; and that we call God.’ I also believe that we humans possess a spark of that divine as our soul or spirit and that that is also a reality.

How was God born?

Discuss this question

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
Who made God? What was God doing before creation of our universe? How was God born? Does God have a mom and Dad? These are some of the questions that arise out of our misconceptions about the nature of God; because we think of God as if He was a human like us; as if He had a beginning and an end like the creation.

When we mention ‘misconceptions’, the obvious question is, “What is the correct perception of God?” What do we know about God? Unfortunately, the answer is that we know pretty little if anything. Trying to use our intellect to understand God is like trying to empty all the water in all the oceans into a teacup. This is so because God is infinite and our intellect is finite. But we can say this much about God.
1. He is infinite and not limited by space.
2. He is eternal and not limited by time. He has no beginning or end.

As He is eternal He was always there. He was not born at any point in time as there was nothing as time before the creation of the universe. At the creation time and space were created along with matter and energy.

What is space made of or is it literally nothing ie no particles nothing?

Discuss this question

Question found in Space & Astronomy
Space is 'Where' matter exists. Or we may say that space is the container that holds matter. This space has no fixed dimensions or boundaries. It expands if the universe expands. It contracts if the universe contracts. Since the beginning the universe was expanding.
Space is not empty. It contain matter - stars, galaxies, dust clouds, gases, all sorts of particles.
Space has no mass.
Space has no existence without matter.
It is said that in the beginning, when ' the matter of the universe' was created, space and time were created with it.

Are radio waves photons?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
In the concept of the dual nature of matter and energy we assume that very light particles like electrons have wave aspect as well as particle aspect. We do not associate heavier particles like a pebble with wave aspect. Among the electromagnetic radiations ranging from shortest gamma rays to the longest radio waves, we can associate the shorter ones like X-rays and light with particle nature but I do not think particle nature fits in well with radio waves. Photons are the particles of energy. Theoretically radio waves may have particler nature but we cannot identify these as we do the photons of light.

Is the lack of selfishness a form of self-realization?

Discuss this question

Question found in Spirituality In General
Lack of selfishness can be said to be the first step to self-realization. Self-realization has several dimensions.
1. It is the awareness that 'I' am not just this physical being that is sure to perish after death but a spiritual being 'self' in the image and likeness of the Almighty.
2. It is the awareness that all humans, all children of God, are my brothers and sisters.
3. It is the realization that God is a being of spirit and though we cannot understand God using our intellect we can experience Him through our soul. This should lead to union with God - at least living in His presence - with Him - in this earthly life.

John says in his first letter that he who liven in Love lives in God. Selfless love is what is needed here. John also says that he who does not love his brothers (all humans) cannot claim to love God. Selfless love - love of God and of fellow beings is thus the right path to self-realization
