Re: Mind is eternal

_______ (Continued from prior post) Don’t get me wrong here, bahman, because I am always deeply impressed by anyone who can converse in more than one language, but it appears as though English is not your native (first) language. Is that correct? If that is true, then it seems as though the way you ...

Re: Mind is eternal

Could you please tell me that what mind is made of? If I had to speculate... (which, of course, is precisely what we are all doing here - speculating) ...then I would suggest that mind and matter are two complementary aspects of the same fundamental essence, with both working together in tandem to ...

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

Re: Mind is eternal

Have you ever wondered that a mind ...

Re: Ethics versus Morality

Fair point... but ... does the labelling of such acts as immoral actually benefit anyone? I think that it would, but only if the labeling is accompanied with a direct and forceful intervention to try and put a halt to it. And when I say forceful intervention, I mean that the perpetrators of this ba...

Re: Mind is eternal

It depends if you God is pure actuality or not. The state of decision is a potentiality. Therefore I have no proof for God to be eternal if He cannot decide. The “hypothetical” God I am speaking of is the one typically envisioned by those of most monotheistic religions (especially the Abrahamic one...

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

'Empty space' as we call it is actually something and it originated in the Big Bang. That’s true, and some people tend to confuse the “empty space” that exists within the inner context of the universe with that of the infinite “nothingness” into which the universe is expanding... ...as is clearly r...

Re: Let's kill God - that evil SOB

So, we get a diabolical evil being, bent on death and destruction. God is evil. Our universe and ourselves are made by a Devil claiming to be a God. Does that not make his followers complicit? No. That makes them innocent victims of the cult-like indoctrination they received as children - an indoct...
