Re: Poetry here.

The paintings were like windows to a church what projecting light into the space of the viewer was After sundown Wandering through muted marble pools Dimmer than pews masked in shadow From every arched window on two walls I found the same orb glowing Moving with the walk across each glass Stained d...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8TNGdXrGJo There was a time when people actually felt like this. Look around the world at the way it is now and listen to the words.

Role reversal

Role reversal.

In this dynamic,
the man is inappropriately defensive,
and the woman is objectively rational.

Re: Why Don't Atheists Believe In God ?

Well, if proof exists, then need for belief does not exist. Thus, it boils down to perception. What exactly is it, that you are seeing? For that matter, what is it that you are thinking?

Re: Finding the Place of No Harm

Peace of mind is the place of no harm. That is the place sought by religion. Is it the destination of philosophy? Anything you are defensive about is an image!

Re: Why Don't Atheists Believe In God ?

Apparently, atheists neither see nor have seen either God or gods. Neither do they perceive a valid cause for belief in a deity, or deities, if they have not been verified by senses, or mind.
