Re: God and Evil

[what would give you the idea that I would kiss your ass in place of god's. I did not say that and you have no foundation for saying that. So you are being unfair. You're welcome to clarify, but it looked to me that you issued an ultimatum fitting the pattern of: "Do ______ or I will not _______" a...

What's ILP? I don't know.
I have a hunch that Greta will know. Let's see if I'm right :D

I'm having a lot fun reading the exchanges between Leo, JSS, and uwot, but I feel like I'm a couple years too late for the party :cry:

FYI, Leo died a couple of years ago so he will be fine with whatever you type.
I was looking through JSS' old posts and discovered this. He was James S Saint at ILP and we haven't heard a peep from him in months. Since he hadn't missed a day of posting since 2011, I figure he graduated.

Re: Back to Infinity

If all that is true, then whatever it is that is one thing cannot look at itself because: no line of sight, no distance, no points. Lets try it like this: When you dream at night you walk across floors, maybe even tightropes, you look at people and the world just like you do right now. The dream se...

Re: God and Evil

Cite Job or I will not listen. Not sure who you are addressing, but if it be me, then I couldn't imagine what would give you the idea that I would kiss your ass in place of god's. He barks ultimatums and doesn't listen too, so y'all would have that in common. If you're not addressing me, then never...

Re: God and Evil

It doesn't proceed from the Bible that evil doesn't come from the Devil who may be primordial as much as God. However, God has created all the physical, the Heavens and the Earth while the Hell of the Devil is home to all (non-ethical/moral-rational) idiots! :D You brilliantly stated what does not ...

Re: God and Evil

I checked. This is the real question: If God is such a nice guy, why is there so much misery and suffering in the world? I'll give you what mom told me: because they're living in sin. Apparently because I choose not to get married, etc, god turns his minion loose to kill all my: pets, trees, plants...

Re: Trolls, the superior race

“attempt to be genuine.” Only humans passionately seek genuineness. Trolls are philosophical by their very nature. For humans philosophy is only entertainment. Humans can never do more than try to be like other humans, and, at best, play make believe. They prefer the baby way of life, and try to dr...

Re: Re:

Okay, now that that's all cleared up... Free will (choosing, self-direction) is (as) real (as the nose on your face). Your experience of yourself in the world confirms this. So: why do so many here deny what they know in their bones is true? You ask an incisive question. It's because Free Will is a...

Re: A strange spiritual consequence of the multiverse theory

When the speaker cycles outward of the box and the air in the port also cycles outward, the sound pressure level rises sharply. That happens at resonance. Below resonance, they work against each other since the speaker travels outward, but the air in the port travels inward. Above resonance, the ai...

Re: Global warming is NOT a science

But you have to understand that there are many other large variables at play, such as our position within the galactic arms which determines cosmic ray bombardment, the earths waning magnetic field strength of late, and ozone depletion which blocks UV rays that are 40x more energetic than IR for wh...

Re: Back to Infinity

Faith is the nonconceptual knowledge It's funny, I've just had a discussion with someone who has the same definition for "faith" - we came to the conclusion that we both use different words for pointing to "non-conceptual knowledge". I would rather call it truth, reality, absolute, infinity etc... ...

Re: Born Again?

What if a man could die to his dogmatic clingings before he literally died? When one wakes to the idea that it's ok to be wrong, then he can die (let go) and be born again (realize new truth). It's not one's aptitude that determines altitude, but attitude. Well again, for me, the idea is a tad too ...

Re: Back to Infinity

Ok, but a subject (observer) cannot be object to itself. True - thats why subjects only sees subject (itself) - it doesn't know objects. A subject is a point that views the object which is another point. We can't draw a line of sight from and to the same point. That is why a subject cannot view its...
