Re: NOTHING, AND WHY THE QUESTION "WHY IS THERE SOMETHING AS OPPOSED TO NOTHING?" IS UNANSWERABLE

If nothing is defined as a point then something other than the point exists even though the point doesn't have any length, width, any dimensional attributes nor any physical features. Yet a point exists in a location and the points surrounding the location create a dimension in the surrounding area...

Re: NOTHING, AND WHY THE QUESTION "WHY IS THERE SOMETHING AS OPPOSED TO NOTHING?" IS UNANSWERABLE

The definition for "nothing" is the absence of things. So in order for "nothing" to be, "things" must exists FIRST. If "things" are not existing prior to nothing, then not even the potential for nothing exists. A more accurate word to use would be "nonthing" rather than "nothing". Non things actual...

Re: NOTHING, AND WHY THE QUESTION "WHY IS THERE SOMETHING AS OPPOSED TO NOTHING?" IS UNANSWERABLE

"Nothing" as a lack, or a void, or of non-existence, does not exist in Reality. If you take away space, you are left with space. This may mean that nothing is not possible. There is nothing less than space. Take away matter and energy and space is left. If space always existed but not matter and en...

Re: Good Religion, and the Good It Can Do

In religion God is definitional. Religions don't say how to experience God. They say that God is love but love is not God. This means that experiencing love is not experiencing God. It's experiencing love with or without God's involvement. The logic in religion is illogical. Religion relates human e...

Re: For EoD, Define: Existence

Does the following observation prove the existence of the precedent? Seems to be so. Does the precedent prove the existence of the following observation? Not so. What if the following observation is an illusion? Does that prove there is no precedent? The following observation proves existence of som...

Re: Law is Neither Obeyed Disobeyed Nor Broken

LAW IS NEITHER OBEYED DISOBEYED NOR BROKEN No person in fact ever determines to act or forbear action on the basis of given published language of law, and, therefore, language of law, absolutely without originative connection with intentional human action/inaction, can, actually, be neither obeyed,...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

Religious leaders attempt to define God but God defies definitions. The only way to learn about God is to experience God. Unfortunately all experience comes from an unseen source. This leads the source undefined. So, back to books a person goes and discovers that some people have actually seen the s...

Re: God(s)

How can I decide without assuming something first? We assume our assumption, thus resulting in the converge of the assumptions (many assumptions into 1) and the divergence of assumptions (one assumption to many with this converging into a new assumption as a variation of the original. The ones who ...

Re: God(s)

This seems like you wanted to just say "God is the absoluteness, it is the absolute property of everything. This god is both logical because this god exists and has great justification towards it's existence, and it is also illogical because it just doesn't make any sense." but decided that it woul...

Re: God(s)

If God is not above time and subject to time than God is no omnipresent. Considering time is tautological in nature, as in one thing is expressed many ways (stone, people, even words), then time is circular and as circular subject to a form beyond itself. This circularity is reflected through an in...

Re: God(s)

Of God is defined by people, and people are images (variations) of God, then people defining God is God defining himself within time and space. What you say can be restated. If God is defined by people, and if people are variations of God, then variations of God define God. Seems like a trivial def...
