Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

What is going on in this thread is people not letting go of their egos. There is no "I" or "you". Those are your egos; not the real Self. Says who? Who is the "your" in reference to, if there is no "I" or "you"? Does ego create/define "real Self" vs. "false Self"? Who/what makes up the ideas of the...

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

The reason why you continue to argue is because you don't know who you really are. "Your name here" is an illusion propped up by your thinking, and if that thinking stops then you are lost. This is the reason why you can't ever actually reach a conclusion and will fight against anything that might ...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

If there is a Supernatural Being He may perhaps be the sort of Person Who likes to set something in motion and impartially watch what happens to it. I suggest that the key aspect in the phrase “Supernatural Being” is found in the word “natural.” And as I have asked many times on this forum, how muc...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

What I am saying (asking) is that if the doubters of intelligent design were asked to design a context of reality that was meant to awaken new souls into existence, then what would they do differently? For starters? Forget the flying orbs. And replace them with what? In other words, describe a plau...

Re: Music

The European members here are probably already acquainted with her work, but for those who aren’t, check out this beautiful sounding live performance at a radio station in Reykja...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Why those hints about a designer? My mere human brain tells me that “if” there were a designer of our Universe, such designer’s capability would be beyond our imagination, beyond our ideas of time, purpose and quality. Right, the proposed designer’s capabilities are way beyond our ability to unders...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

I see your point now. I think about that a lot. I accept your challenge. I can easily imagine alternative realities for "souls" to inhabit, and I will describe them to you. Keep in mind that I’m not looking for descriptions of realities for souls to “inhabit” (but I wouldn’t mind hearing your ideas...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Yes melancocky “life” is the key. Any who found themselves indoctrinated to believe that some “god’ or whatever is the creator can hold such god responsible for good and evil, not us. Live and let live, run for cover when it rains. Hmmm well, if there is a grand designer and he gave us free will, t...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

IMO: if there were an Almighty designer, such designer would unlikely have created so many misfits and conflicting situations. And what if the existence of “misfits and conflicting situations” were all necessary in helping to make the design work properly? One thing is beyond my doubt: We will all ...
