Re: The Power of Now - by Eckhart Tolle

I think Eckhart is delightful. I like the way he thinks and how he is an oasis of calm and serenity in a world full of big attitudes and egos.

Re: POSTMODERNISM - AMERICA'S ENEMY WITH

Good Grief ! What a pile of woolley codswallop, Greta ! Are you seriously asking members of this forum to accept your claim that there is a "Greta Spirit" that is, in fact, comprised of smaller, "sub-Greta Spirits" and that the "Greta Spirit" is itself, indeed, a component of some larger Spiritual ...

Re: Einstein on the train

Brilliant work, William, and genuinely useful for science fans due to the material's clarity and tendency to fill those little gaps often left out in other explanations. There's much in there to think about. The way the universe and atoms came about is killer info! Is this your masterwork or do you...

Re: Hypocrisy against women

I thnink the world needs more whores. Both male and female. We have contraceptives now - who cares? Fuck away. :lol: I don't care either, but it's worth spelling out that women too need to consider which men are most likely to engage in extracurricular behaviour, and whether faithfulness/ownership ...

Re: POSTMODERNISM - AMERICA'S ENEMY WITH

I don't have a problem with the God concept. Who knows? What if this is not the first universe but the billionth? What if evolution in even one of those universes produced beings that managed to keep transcending every challenge the cosmos threw at them until they achieved a form capable of survivi...

Re: POSTMODERNISM - AMERICA'S ENEMY WITH

However, there is much within that others cannot perceive, that is therefore not the domain of science, but remains thoroughly real. I think the important thing here is not to be mechanistic about it - to support some school or another. That's just self programming, self imposed blinders. There is ...

Re: POSTMODERNISM - AMERICA'S ENEMY WITH

An example of postmodernism is the disregard for scientific evidence as if all information was equal. Thus, the myths of Abrahamic tribes are treated as equal by evangelists, or even superior, to all of the learning achieved globally since that time. Another example is flat Earthism - the idea that...

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

1. The actions of the human species has put into motion a mass extinction event on the earth. This behavior more closely resembles the actions of a cancer than of a mammal. 2. The human species is a cancer. 3. The most obvious difference between humans and all other life is our use of thought and o...
