Re: What if God is weak?

Reflex wrote: This article, How Einstein Reconciled Religion to Science, is the predicament I find myself in: I don’t consider myself as fitting any category such as atheist, pantheist or even panentheist (although I use the term “panentheist” due to the lack of anything better).

Re: What if God is weak?

Reflex, I agree with your pointing to Caputo’s “The Weakness of God”. He is a well informed and highly capable philosopher whose theology is quite different than what most might expect. In fact, he is in agreement with many of the standard criticisms of theology and religion. Other than linking to ...

Re: What if God is weak?

All randomness relative to nothingness is ordered; hence randomness is a statement of being relative to being as an approximation of being. Randomness exists strictly through observation of being, due to its multiplicuous nature resulting in ambiguity due to infinite variables. Sounds like gibberis...

Re: What if God is weak?

Okay, then it wouldn't make much sense to try to make a stable argument about the instability of God if instability is the good considering stability is an illusion. Yup. That is why life is a risky if bracing business, and why the Talmudic author points to the “radical uncertainty” in things, whil...

So what is stability? No such thing.

Re: Metaphysics, Religious Revelation and Morality

You might have to dumb this down for simple folk like me, but I think I got some of what you're saying. The foundation of all morality is premised in metaphysics as strictly "being qua being" as an act of reflection. Metaphysics my exist through religion but is not limited to it considering all reli...

Re: The Evolution of the Idea of God

I hope you didn't pay for it. It can be downloaded for free. (I've had the book in my library for a long time.)

Re: Jordan Peterson: Atheists Are Murderers

JP argued it is rational for any atheist to murder rationally. A bit oversimplified, but yes. JP was saying that not everyone who says they are an atheist have core values that are atheistic (even if they don't realize it). Gads. Am I the only one that watched actually listened? I've seen several v...

Re: Addressing the Physicalist Delirium

Here’s an interesting article: The Present Phase of Stagnation in the Foundations of Physics Is Not Normal.

Maybe scientists should study the role consciousness has.

Re: Jordan Peterson: Atheists Are Murderers

You’re a liar, VA. That’s not what JP said at all. There's a big difference between saying atheists are murderers and they have no metaphysical reason not to murder.
