Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

I grew up to believe that someone, a creator, had made all, but from my long life among so-called civilised societies on opposite sides of the globe, I have come to my conclusion that it is not some “one” either because our planet and the universe are so complex that it requires an almighty power. ...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

None of us have asked to be born. How could something that does not yet exist ask for anything? In which case, isn’t it necessary that it be done for us? We are here ‘not’ by our own choice but as the result of the natural breeding-urge of our forefathers. No, we are here because something beyond o...

Re: Bricks in The Universe's Wall

If you could somehow get to an “edge” of the Universe, if it could exist, would you be able to touch it? Looking at this issue from the perspective of the alleged Big Bang, one can theoretically assume that the leading edge of the universe is a light barrier that encompasses and encapsulates the de...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

The world disappears during dreamless sleep but you still exist. The death state is simply a larger cycle of the same state. No, roydop, the world does not disappear during dreamless sleep; just your own personal awareness of the world disappears. Seeds, there is no world... http://2.bp.blogspot.co...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

_______ (Continued from prior post) Ultimately, we have to give up our life at death... Is that what you would say to comfort a child with a terminal illness who asks you “what’s going to happen to me when I die”? I bring that up quite often because the promoters of nihilistic philosophies such as t...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Is this so-called “same singular consciousness” actually conscious of itself (as in self-aware)? Humans have the capability to be absolutely self aware, which means we know we exist in and of ourselves, but we still have our awareness "outward" on thoughts and sensations. Absolutely self-aware huma...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

What is going on in this thread is people not letting go of their egos. There is no "I" or "you". Those are your egos; not the real Self. Says who? Who is the "your" in reference to, if there is no "I" or "you"? Does ego create/define "real Self" vs. "false Self"? Who/what makes up the ideas of the...

Re: A LOGICAL ARGUMENT FOR THE CAUSE OF HUMANITY'S UNNATURAL BEHAVIOR.

The reason why you continue to argue is because you don't know who you really are. "Your name here" is an illusion propped up by your thinking, and if that thinking stops then you are lost. This is the reason why you can't ever actually reach a conclusion and will fight against anything that might ...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

If there is a Supernatural Being He may perhaps be the sort of Person Who likes to set something in motion and impartially watch what happens to it. I suggest that the key aspect in the phrase “Supernatural Being” is found in the word “natural.” And as I have asked many times on this forum, how muc...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

What I am saying (asking) is that if the doubters of intelligent design were asked to design a context of reality that was meant to awaken new souls into existence, then what would they do differently? For starters? Forget the flying orbs. And replace them with what? In other words, describe a plau...
