Re: Schizophrenia

What I never understood was why a schizophrenic would obey a voice in their head telling them what to do. Surely there would at least be an internal argument if an internal voice is telling a person to do irrational and unethical things?

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

As for esotericism, that is something I've delved into with gusto at various times in my life. One needs no religion for that, just curiosity and creative imagination and the time and opportunity to exercise them. It's not as though the wonders of existence are hidden from us - they are accessible a...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

Greta, you still don’t get it. I need specifics so I can work out what percentage of religions you believe to be "secular" and what percentage you see as "esoteric". Where are these people practising religions properly rather than secularly? Which groups? Surely you know of chapters of religions th...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

Greta You like Seeds are closed to the concepts of scale and relativity as they pertain to the being of Man. That is why religion is all the same to you. The essence of religion is concerned for what we ARE (awakening) and secularized religion is concerned for what we DO in the world (indoctrinatio...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

Greta If you claim that organised religions are "secular" (a oxymoron, but let's humour you) then there is no such thing as "religious" - the concept disappears. So, no, religions are NOT secular. They never have been and never will be. That is exactly the point that you deny. You like Seeds are cl...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

Greta, haven’t you learned by now that no matter how many times you extend an olive branch to Nick, he (the “terminator” of secularists like you) is always going to respond to you as described in this 23 sec. clip on YouTube - https://youtu.be/Cy2tjbihyCQ ROLF! Too true! I have a bloke on the other...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

I know secularism is politically incorrect almost everywhere in the world but still even blind deniers of science would ideally at least theoretically be open to the evidence of evolution in the past and what that may tell us may happen in the future. However, they are not because "blind deniers" d...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

One essential difference is that you believe all seeds are equal and I don't. Nick, I honestly don’t think that you presenting yourself as being some kind of cosmic equivalent of a KKK member is going to win you a lot of sympathy for your cause. How strange. I agree with Nick again. I completely ag...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

No, it is not hypocritical by wanting at least some some semblance or pretence of probity in governance. There is no need for you to incoherently babble against me in what looks like a desperate attempt to justify the idiotic comments you made earlier. Why not just admit that you stuffed up before ...

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

Given how little we know about the nature of reality, I won't discount the possibility of larger, containing conscious systems that either currently exist or are in the process of emergence (they won't be male or female, though!). Quite possibly! But this has nothing to do with god as "theistically...

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

"If Clinton tried on what Trump had done of course I would have been just as offput.

Re: Will Adolf Hitler Be Saved (End Up in Heaven)?

However, that would be unthinkable because, for most people, God can only be a "He" - basically a dominant heterosexual alpha male elder - and that is ridiculous in this day and age. Any presumption of god in this day and age is itself ridiculous regardless of how such an entity is qualified. Who c...
