Re: Secular Spirituality

Either way it is just glorified egoism worshiping society and sometimes Crowley Crowley as the Great Beast and provider of human meaning and purpose. Blahdy blahdy blah. You are as much unable to grasp the idea of secular spirituality as Conde's impression of homoeopathic new age crystalhood. It's ...

Re: Secular Spirituality

For instance, there is not one joke in the bible. There may be many jokes in there for all we know, in which case people could be living by the tenets of ancient satire :) I'm sorry, Greta, but I trust myself to laugh when something is funny. The Bible has not one funny line. This is important. To ...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Greta, as Marjoram_blues seems to have noticed (since I've stated it repeatedly) I have chosen to focus on the Wikipedia article. And I've just stated above that I'm not saying what Greta believes or should believe, but yet you come back to complain about it. I know my English is not top notch, but...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Conde, I have made clear what I see as secular spirituality. I would rather not have the Wiki article attributed to me - I happen to have my own mind which means that my version of secular spirituality does not coincide with Wikipedia's. Why are you attributing things I haven't said to me? Why try ...

Re: Scapegoats for Secular Progressives

Greta Yes, but it would be hard to explain in a post. However if you are open to what Meister Eckhart writes it will provide a foundation. The seed of the human soul will either perish, be saved, or be nourished to grow so as to become the soul of Man. Sometimes a partially developed seed reincarna...

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

One way of preventing the forces of tyranny from prevailing is to not vote for the biggest autocrat and environmental vandal! The claim about freedom and avoiding regulation is ironic. I look forward to women's freedom over their own bodies. Or everyone's freedom to die with dignity rather than suf...

Unfortunately, CL chooses to focus on certain aspects of the wiki content, despite being corrected.
A good devil's advocate, but needs to eschew the low hanging fruit :)

Re: Scapegoats for Secular Progressives

Greta Do you believe in any kind of afterlife? Yes, but it would be hard to explain in a post. However if you are open to what Meister Eckhart writes it will provide a foundation. The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed i...

Re: Self-centeredness

It does get boring. So then you start looking outside for something more fresh. Then that becomes troublesome so you retreat and relate the new info back to the self and then do some recontextualising, perhaps something akin to -1-'s post. Then that becomes boring and ... :D Express. Be impressed up...

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

Yes, I judge you as a Trump fan. How can you support someone so dodgy, who is such a liar and so keenly destructive of nature at a time when ecosystems are in trouble? How can you support a secular progressive philosophy which seeks to create subservient slaves of the Great Beast and the loss of th...

Re: Secular Spirituality

For those at a back of the classroom who may have missed some earlier comments: ... I see spirituality as everyday , something that all but the most damaged routinely engage in. Kindness, consideration, amiability, cooperativeness, empathising, nurturing, defending, supporting, entertaining, listeni...

Re: Secular Spirituality

Whatever humanity is, it's far closer to eusocial organisation than any other organisational model. Neither you nor Dubious will be able to point to any organisational model in nature that is even nearly as close to the way humans organise themselves as eusociality. Basically, humanity is developin...
