Difference Between Islam and Buddhism. Islam vs Buddhism When it comes to some of the major religions in the world, a lot of people are skeptical, or even fearful of something that they do not know a lot about.
Here, we will try to do away with some of the most common misconceptions regarding the two most common religions in the world: Islam and Buddhism. First, let’s take a look at what Islam, as a religion, is all about. It’s based on the religious book Qur’an, and the literal meaning of the name is ‘submission to God’. A Muslim, therefore, is someone who submits himself to God. Based on the teachings of Islam as a religion, there are five duties which Muslims must practice within the community ‘“ and this is what Islamic Law revolves around. What about Buddhism?

Cult Help and Information. Why a Loving God would Damn All Other Faiths To Hell. What’s a seeker of Truth supposed to do with two competing facts that leave as much room for compromise, Sam Harris says, “as a coin toss?”
The New Testament says Jesus is the actual, real son of God, and anyone who doesn’t believe that will spend eternity in Hell. The Koran says Jesus is not the son of God, and anyone who believes he is will spend eternity in Hell. (A Buddhist would consider the whole discussion odd.) This, all by itself, is a good reason to wonder how plausible it is that there’s a God with a capital “G” in the first place. Which makes more sense to you? Playful, analytic explorations.

Il motivo iniziale di questa ricerca è lo stupore di entrambi di fronte all’evidenza di una base comune alla preghiera e ai riti che si indirizzano al divino, base che ha come oggetto quella corona di grani che prende cultura per cultura nomi diversi, ma ha un uso pressoché simile.

Why Is Religion Natural? Feature Pascal Boyer Skeptical Inquirer Volume 28.2, March / April 2004 Is religious belief a mere leap into irrationality as many skeptics assume?
Psychology suggests that there may be more to belief than the suspension of reason. Religious beliefs and practices are found in all human groups and go back to the very beginnings of human culture. History of the Ancient Aryans. Iran is the ancient name of Persia, and it is derived from the root "Arya" or Aryan, the Indo-European branch of peoples who settled in that land.
The Aryans of ancient Iran were Mazdayasni Zarathushtris, ie. Worshippers of Ahura Mazda (the name of God in Avestan) as revealed by the ancient prophet Zarathushtra, thousands of years before Christ. However, all the ancient Zoroastrian scriptures speak of an earlier homeland from where our people came, the lost "Airyane Vaejahi" or seedland of the Aryans. From this homeland, the Indo- Europeans or Aryans moved to upper India, Iran, Russia and the nations of Europe such as Greece, Italy, Germany, France, Scandinavia, England, Scotland and Ireland. Sanskrit, Latin, Avestan are all sister languages, and the present day upper Indian, Persian and European languages are related eg. World Religions & Beliefs. THEOLOGY/WORLD RELIGIONS/SYMBOLS.

Disbelieve it or Not, Ancient History Suggests That Atheism is as Natural to Humans as Religion. People in the ancient world did not always believe in the gods, a new study suggests – casting doubt on the idea that religious belief is a “default setting” for humans.
“Early societies were far more capable than many since of containing atheism within the spectrum of what they considered normal – Tim Whitmarsh” Despite being written out of large parts of history, atheists thrived in the polytheistic societies of the ancient world – raising considerable doubts about whether humans really are “wired” for religion – a new study suggests. The claim is the central proposition of a new book by Tim Whitmarsh, Professor of Greek Culture and a Fellow of St John’s College, University of Cambridge. In it, he suggests that atheism – which is typically seen as a modern phenomenon – was not just common in ancient Greece and pre-Christian Rome, but probably flourished more in those societies than in most civilizations since.

Atheist, Gnostic, Theist, Agnostic. Too many times I have informed someone that I am an atheist, only to have them reply, “Oh, but how could you know that God doesn’t exist? You’re taking a faith position!” Many headaches later, we finally come to an agreement over the definitions of these words. This arrangement is an attempt to clarify and classify these words, so that their rogue meanings no longer confuse and muddle religious debate.
To begin with, here are the four key terms arranged on a graph with their opposites across from them. This should allow a very rough placement of one’s theological position.
