Re: The Dualistic Mind

Greta The Holy Trinity is just mythology, like virgin births, resurrections and angels. Obviously you would agree that none of those absurdities are real other than in some oblique metaphorical sense, just as you know that the geocentric solar system was not true. Mythology is basically an early me...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Also, BTW, you seem to not realise that I have been a proponent of panvitalism for a long time and open to "weak panpsychism" (if inclusive of proto-consciousness). You'll be delighted to know that I have copped much bollocking from people on forums for entertaining such views but I don't claim that...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Greta,You are good at ad hom attacks and missing the point but at least your absurdity is consistent. The Holy Trinity is one. The tripartite soul described by Plato is another. The triune brain theory is another and the triune mind is also another. Yes they are all related but cannot be considered...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Greta wrote Who hates the idea of improving their consciousness? No one. This is what you do not understand. Humanity functioning by dualistic reason struggles against triune human consciousness. It is only imagination that makes living with obvious hypocrisy tolerable. You equate consciousness and...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Nooo, stop playing games and address what has been written. I'm not promoting anything, so your claim of projection is so misguided it suggests that you don't understand what the term means. After all these years of claiming to be of a higher consciousness than others, Nick, it's beholden on you to...

Re: Common Courtesy

Ahem... I'm the dick. TimeSeeker is the twat. And I was just having a 'poke' at him. :wink: Gold star for the rest of the post though. Sounds like an enjoyable story :) Yes, I did note that pointed thrust of yours at TimSee earlier :) It's hard to say how enjoyable the stories are. I think some of ...

Re: gods omniscience and tequila

God is omniscient, right so, this means that god know what it feels like to be the person who downs 20 shots of tequila, barfs on their date, and wakes up with a vicious hangover in ER but how does God come to have this knowledge - it is easy enough to understand how he might have objective knowled...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

The verification has been done and no fairies were found. Remember all the tests trying to find God and soul? All the theists were super excited to hear of a test to measure the weight of a departing soul from the recently deceased. They were less excited to have a negative result. There are, of co...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Why believe; why not verify? But being so caught up in denial you will never be able to do so. The verification has been done and no fairies were found.

Re: Common Courtesy

I just don't get why you two want to put any form of awareness out in space. Even if possible, you two fail to see yourselves deciding for someone else what to do with them, and put them through. Petty gods you are. It's revolting. And for no reason save your own edification. I can imagine the whol...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

There is obviously no such thing as what Nick and other evangelists believe - a universal-scale controlling masculine spirit that is greatly disturbed by the sexual behaviour of one particular species of hominids on one particular planet in one particular galaxy. Let's face it, we don't like to be ...

Satan and Lucifer are not necessarily the same.
That's news to me. Which is the same or different?

Beelzebub
the devil
The Lord of Darkness (no, not Voldemort or Sauron :)
the antichrist
Mephistopheles
Diabolus
Hades
Abaddon/Apollyon
