Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

I'm not wrong about being a skeptic. You may be wrong about anything else and why not about being a skeptic? Are you saying I'm not a skeptic - Make up your mind!! See edited response also. When a skeptic cannot radically or systematically doubt himself or his own assumptions, he is hardly a skepti...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

It was made without our knowledge, as we didn't exist yet. Who "made" it? How was it made? What does it look like? How was it conceived? In what form does it exist? Answer each one of your questions in turn, dazzle us with you brilliance! ...I'm waiting... You can wait until hell freezes over. Thos...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

Who "made" it? How was it made? What does it look like? How was it conceived? In what form does it exist? You ask "Who" as if that's the only possible question and shows that in all probability you're a creationist in truth. in the face of "theories," (you do know what a theory is, right?) how coul...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

What's stopping us from seeing the truth. OK Bill, I can now see that initially you meant "Literally" Seeing. There is also a minds eye which is what I initially took you to mean, which I'm sure you realize. After checking, I was surprised to learn that my take on seeing was actually the first defi...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

The Universe abides, incorrect it's always changing it has no interest; it has no concern; it has no conception; Here you profess to know everything about the universe which is false it has no right or wrong; here you are probably correct no secrets. incorrect, there is still much we don't know The...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

You are proposing that there is a 'sub-stratum' of 'actual' reality that informs what our knowledge may come upon in its own right, and thereby are suggesting that human knowlegde is 'incomplete' as humans are coming upon 'more truth' of the universe as we progress in our understanding of the unive...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

What's stopping us from seeing the truth? What truth? Exactly Sounds like you are expressing the truth and claiming it yours. Nope. I do not subscribe to your concept of the truth. Then what is it that you express? Great job, Ron de Weijze! He'll never have an answer for you that stands up to any t...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

So there is a God? I have no clue if there is a god. I have never said there was a god. In terms of god, I have always said that it's possible. I'm glad you do! How would I know of Its Truth? You would have to have evidence that in fact he existed. I have no clue as to how, when or if you shall fin...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

Truth exists not because of a term but rather the term exists because of the truth. There are billions of truths. Dating all the way back to that primordial ooze that the first life sprang from. But I won't go back that far. you are saying that there has always been a Truth even though Throg and Gl...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

I snipped my bit because of the 3 max nested quote limitation. However it's easy to understand the chain because your text below is still attached to my original. Sounds to me like you are saying Truth Is because we have a term for truth, which is little better than saying we have a term "God" and ...

Re: What's stopping us from seeing the truth?

What my point has been from the very beginning is that Truth simply is. You cannot possibly disprove truth. Truth never changes and is exactly the same for everyone despite their knowledge. The truth begets reality. It exists without humans whatsoever. Truth is the aim of all human pursuits in knowl...
