Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

IF the universe was created THEN...we must exist within some type of Simulated Reality. What it is simulating is beyond our reach with the present devices of science. Are we able to identify possible evidence which scientific research has uncovered within this universe which could point to the poss...

Re: [redacted]

Total domination for them, complete secrecy for them, absolute safety for them - total transparency for us, eager compliance from us, existential fear incentives for us; that's the goal. Also, there will be a price tag on every molecule of air because the government works only for the good of group...

Re: What happens to those who believe in God?

just because one is dead to the world, doesn't mean they don't exist, or don't live. My mother is dead, died at the age of 46, I haven't seen her since, nor spoken with her, nor hugged her. She is gone, she aint here anymore. That she is not alive anymore is a fact. I will never see her again. That...

Re: What happens to non-believers of God?

The answer is nothing. The question was a trick question. Questions can only arise within the illusion of duality/separation. The idea there is a ''someone'' who can question itself and others. A 'someone' is nothing more than an object of knowing. You are this knowing that cannot be known. Reality...

Re: Biblical Hallucinations

From another thread discussion; Twist. I won't buy in. I told you...I can see that technique. You're not fooling anyone. I don't have a "hallucination theory." What I said was that you were describing hallucinations. Indeed. I am not arguing you said anything else. I will continue to argue that you...

Re: What happens to those who believe in God?

without getting preachy, there's not supposed to be a cure, a replacement yes, but there is no cure. What on earth is a replacement for human thought? what man's Maker thinks. surly you understand that likeness and image isn't the flesh, when its understood that the fear of God is the beginning of ...

Re: What happens to those who believe in God?

Nothing substantive happens to those that beleive in god, its pretty much the same for those that do not. There are, however, serious complications that can develop from this belief, which, thankfully for most does not occur. Most people say they believe but conintue to live their lives as if they ...

Re: What happens to those who believe in God?

what happens is, reinforcement of belief and trust in God in one's relationship with God, or, the reinforcement of one's belief and trust that there is no God because they have no nor are looking for a relationship with God. which does happen in this life. as far as living the same life in the fles...

Re: Seriously, China?

As Biden tells us, such observations are evidence of cultural insensitivity. China has a long tradition of dealing with their population and borders in their own way, and the world needs to respect their ways. https://nypost.com/2021/02/17/biden-says-uighur-genocide-is-part-of-chinas-different-norm...

Re: the self-fulfilling paradox
