Re: What if God is weak?

Dodgy. Why not address the question instead of posting your views on other matters, things that have nothing to do with “what if”? Back to Twitter with you, dunce. You offer nothing. Just a book addressing the question directly and a summary. Don’t blame me for your unwillingness to explore possibi...

Re: I can't value things intellectually

The question of pleasure then is relegated to depth, which gives more pleasure physical, spiritual or mental stimulation? It is not relegated to depth. Not if one school of thought whether hedonism or non-hedonism (intellectualism, spiritualism, etc.) claims that one receives more "pleasure". I thi...

Re: What if God is weak?

But here is TimeSeeker again trying to figure out how to pause time. If you figure it out, let me know, okay? He could try cooling to absolute zero or being a singularity in a black hole? Time is probably being paused in black holes all the, um time :) The Zeno Effect looks interesting. Didn't know...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

Her point is just that reality itself offers these wonderful states that many have never known, just as she'd n...

Re: Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

. The OP is a fair summary of what appears to be rapidly growing right wing political correctness and retreat from reason. There is nothing interesting or philosophically relevant there at all. Just a political rant. You ideally should go to Facebook or Twitter if that's your game rather than screwi...

Re: What if God is weak?

Ah, very funny miss buzzkill :D (though I’m having difficulty recognizing the tease in what appeared to be a valid question). Basically asking you for the impossible. How on Earth could you provide extraordinary evidence for the universe to seemingly be made out of a "mind-like substance"? Wouldn't...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

You seen to have this weird idea that if one chooses not to be a ''somebody'' with an autonomous status with letters after their name, then they are just a piece of lazy trash unwilling to learn anything. You have a special gift for wrongness. I was a high school dropout and the only time I saw the...

Re: Satan gave man love. Was it worth the hate?

The ancients we like us in many ways. The difference between us and them is basically equivalent to the difference between teens and adults - life experience. We have all these thousands of years of extra experience now. Our bodies of knowledge built from that experience are now huge, and growing ex...

Re: What if God is weak?

You are fixating on the features of the façade while failing to look deeply into the nature of the substance that the façade is made of. 1. From the perspective of what physicists refer to as “local reality” the substance presents itself as rocks and gas clouds (and suns and planets). 2. From the p...

Re: Satan gave man love. Was it worth the hate?

The ancients certainly lived in a strange and mystical mental world where all manner of forces of nature were thought to be spirits with agency, that could be reasoned and bargained with.

Re: What if God is weak?

Have you ever entertained the possibility that what appears to be a pointlessness to some of the objects in the universe is their point? Nope, because they are rocks and gas clouds. They each have a fate but not control or awareness about it. You are fixating on the features of the façade while fai...

Science goes round in circles too, don't make science your God of the all knowing, science has no clue as to what is Consciousness. This is just garble.
