Re: Göbekli Tepe

Okay. But this insane one will inform that your figures could be out by only roughly a million or two years, and maybe even more? But, I guess that is close enough for you? I think (almost) anyone on this forum, except you, can roughly and immediately understand in what sense I meant "humanity" and...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

And your lie that I "dismiss all of mysticism", even though I made it abundantly clear that I fundamentally subscribe to it, well.. You do not subscribe to it. If you did you would not argue it is speculation. is this not obvious? You like the theory, but you don't believe that it originates in kno...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

No human can have absolute certainty, ever. That's not about nondualism or Nagarjuna, but about anything really. Please prove it. I'm with Aristotle on this. Certain knowledge is identical with its object. If you can refute this statement then I'll have to back down. Otherwise I'd say your view is ...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

We have all of modern science, and every philosophical insight ever, at our fingertips. But they were giants and we are standing on their shoulders. Yes. But nobody has ever improved on Nagarjuna's metaphysics or found another fundamental theory that even works. So we're not much standing on his sh...

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

There's no warming, looks like it's getting colder actually. Maybe we're headed for the next Ice Age. Okay maybe it's not getting colder, but it's definitely not getting warmer either. The weather is same as usual. Okay maybe it's getting a bit warmer, but humans have nothing to do with it. Will get...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I put to you a very simple task, which you are evading: to speak about Atheism from Atheism. It's your own ideology, from your own ideology. Have I NOT told you that it's NOT an ideology for me? Why are you ignoring this and insisting that I answer your question as it suits you? But you're afraid t...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

Just ignore Skepdick btw, it's a long story but he will probably never understand anything you say or even anything he himself says. This was my plan. Thanks for this comment since I now feel better about it. I mean that there is no "extra, unique feeling or sensation or quality" associated with th...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

I find your questions very vague. We seem to be talking about two things here: 1. Nondualism as the realization that no fundamental separations, divisions exist, and so our true self is the Absolute, not the ego. This can also be verified via direct investigation. 2. Nondualism as the belief that "...

Re: Göbekli Tepe

So, you can not even answer two very simple straightforward questions. Do you not like having your ideas about what you find "absolutely fascinating" questioned? You say, This "First Age" of humanity, roughly 10000 BC - 8000 BC, which completely contradicts what is otherwise suggested. Yet you stil...

Re: Göbekli Tepe

- the Indus Valley civ, personally I think that the Egyptians made contact with them around 2650 BC when they sent out expeditions; they are that extremely advanced civ that taught Egyptians so much, and this also explains how they could have gone from build crappy little pyramids to building the G...

Re: Göbekli Tepe

Plato's Atlantis myth, like all myths, is grounded in something. I say "Egyptians! Egyptians!" but most likely they hijacked a philosophy from some prior civilization. I currently see the legend of Atlantis mainly as a mixture of three Egyptian memories: - the "First Age", Zep Tepi which is address...

Re: Göbekli Tepe

I would have to agree with Age (for once) on his stance and the quote he provided. They were deeply afraid of something. They where mostly likely trying to create a singularity (similar to the Tower of Babel story/myth) and where using the natural elements as a means to do it. In pseudo scientific ...
