Re: Complete definition of any word does not exist

To understand the word 'father', then what is an example of 'father'? My father for example. I experienced my father as a separate object and distinguishable from other things. We know that the word is pointing to an external object. That is how I say we understand a word. We add the words together...

There are many different versions of the Bible so which version are you referring to
There would only need to be one authentic version if it was actually written by God
True.

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Oh! Did God write the Bible? Of course no, but people believe that the Bible is what God said. 1. But how can you believe the Bible is what God said when it was written by man and all man's predisposition to personal biases? True. But there are people who believe in the Bible and all the stories wi...

Of course no, but people believe that the Bible is what God said.
And what evidence do you have for your, "Of course no", answer?
There are several versions of the Bible. What is written in the Bible does not fit the truth, etc.

Re: Complete definition of any word does not exist

Er? A father is an abstract object which is needed to categorize father from other things abstractly. My father is a real object. We have "my father" as an abstract object too. We have the ability to relate an abstract object to a real object. That is how we understand reality through language. Toc...

Re: Complete definition of any word does not exist

Complete definition of any word does not exist since we always define a word in terms of other words. To me EVERY word has a complete definition. I think you are mixing understanding by definition. Let's see, what is the definition of father? The process of defining any word is eventually either ci...

Re: Complete definition of any word does not exist

Complete definition don't exist, and yet we understand words. That's because language is recursive and self-reinforcing. When you define a word the definition itself is called metalanguage . The word being defined is called object language . When you re-define words - you are quite literally invent...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

Hi bahman Do you believe these things literally - or as a metaphor? I consider these things to be literal unless otherwise is declared somewhere in the Bible. The Bible is the word of God. People used to believe that creation is done in seven days. People nowadays call this metaphor because they ca...

Re: God, Satan, Adam and Eve, and origin of evil

It is said that God created Satan with evil nature (Satan could feel pride) and Satan was first who fell in the sin of pride. Satan then fooled Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge.

Re: Do you experience time when there is no change?

The answer to topic question is no. Sculptor believes that there is no experience of time when there is no change. If it is so then why waiting is so bothersome? That would be a question that only YOU could answer. So, Why do YOU get bothersome when YOU are 'waiting' for some thing? Waiting is some...
