Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

But make no mistake about the fact that you and Dam and Lacewing are promoting a nihilistic vision of reality (at least in terms of our status in eternity). No, I'm not. You are the one making a mistake to accuse and label me in such a way. You do not understand my perspective... and I'm done tryin...

You know nothing about the you that you imagine you are, and neither do I... ...you are talking absolute nonsense...which is generally what all humans do anyway... including me.

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

...why would you assume that an atheist would not do the same thing to the girl that you did? Why would you assume that an atheist would go to her and tell her that her life is meaningless? Why would you assume anyone would be that callous or stupid? Atheism, by reason of the fact that it rejects t...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

“ Artwork” implies the existence of an “artist. ” This is a human perspective, but there is no reason to expect that the Universe behaves according to human expectations. And there is no reason to believe that it doesn't either. For example, it is a completely reasonable “human expectation” to assu...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

What will your transcendental state do for the little girl which you cannot do now? You put up her picture. What do you plan to do about her right now? Well, the first thing I would do for her and others like her is to not promote a philosophy that suggests that not only was the three or four years...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

And that (I believe) is how insignificant our present situation is compared to the transcendent situation that awaits us. Well I agree that our present "reality" is insignificant. What I'm saying is that I don't think there is a situation awaiting us. Then you are promoting a form of nihilism and o...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

You appear to be saying the human mind is a replicate of gods mind.... And so I interpret what you've said... as being each individual mind is identically at one with one continuous whole energy that expresses itself as this universe. That we are the central mechanism by which god sees each one of ...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

However, I personally believe that a wondrous eternal destiny awaits each of us - one that does not end with a re-absorption of our individual consciousness into some kind of homogenous state of “Oneness.” Why do you believe this? Is it primarily because it's what you want to believe? Perhaps. But ...

Re: The Futility of Reason

I now go by the credo that if someone criticizes me, I don't straight away accept the criticism to be true. But I definitely ask myself, "why did he say it?" If another person says the same thing to me, then I look to myself because now the same thing has been verified by someone else so I have to ...
