Re: Spacetime

Why is space measureless?

Re: A Theory of Relative Time made by me and nobody else!

I'm very unlikely to read any specific book, but to search my world for the subject "philosophy of time" may not be bad choice. I hope that doesn't mean you never read any books. I do understand a reluctance to read books recommended on a forum. One could end up with an eclectic mix of drivel for a...

Re: A Theory of Relative Time made by me and nobody else!

And no, I'm not very into measurement theory as such, so you'll have to aid me if there's anything in measurement theory I should find interesting. There are works on measurement theory that I like, but I'm afraid that might be like giving you a mere piece of the puzzle. Since time is the main subj...

Re: A Theory of Relative Time made by me and nobody else!

I'm not of the opinion that the statement that time exists apart from the mind makes any sense, as then we couldn't know it. By that logic all of existence is part of one large mind. Yet surely we can perceive things that are not a part of us. As easy and short as I could make it, but you should re...

Re: A Theory of Relative Time made by me and nobody else!

So I was thinking, pondering the other day what is the "nature" of time as we experience it. I found it a truly complex problem to solve, but in the end I found a staggeringly simple (or at least relatively simple ) explanation for it. Maybe I'm just too tired, but the length of your post was a bit...

Re: Christianity's Immoral Foundation

You will be judged on your actions and not for Adam and Eves or even mine. Where is it implied that we are judged by Adam and Eves actions? You could say that a Christian is a person that asks to be judged by Jesus's actions. You're correct. I especially like the last part of the above quote. But I...

Re: How Does an Atheist Come to Believe in God?:

Prof. Needleman seems to be describing how he gradually outgrew emotional denial so as to experience another quality of emotion. An interesting observation. It also reveals someone content in their position that they can admit the intelligence of those who disagree - the enticing aspects of their a...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Sodom's destruction including children and babies was not evil? The genocide in Noah's day was not evil? God hardening Pharaoh's soft heart so that he could flex his wath by murdering children instead of the parents, the innocent instead of the guilty, was not evil? I don't believe God does evil. T...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Add this question to your list of answers from my questions above and you will get your answer. Reciprocity is fair play where I come from and BTW, whhat you are showing is hardly what I would call complexity. Sigh. OK, so you think me a devious person. I didn't want a discussion of "infallible" to...

You've never dealt with complexity before? What is it you think I'm hiding?

If someone insisted that you're "hiding" by calling death undesirable rather than evil, would that person be correct or would they be misrepresenting you?

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Am I to take it that you did not like your answers to my questions and thus decided to deflect? No, again, trying to sift out the chaff. It would have been tedious to answer each of your points only to have you ignore most of my reply by posting yet more unrelated material. If there was part of wha...

It looks like most of your post was copied from an earlier reply. If you need to qualify the semantics, fine, but you didn't answer the question. So, I'll rephrase: what makes death undesirable?

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Seeing as there is quite a bit of bible being tossed about, do you, DL and Resha, both believe the Bible to be written by (a) god? And if so, is the Bible infallible in what is written? There is a long list of differences between me and DL. I'm sure this is one of them. However, each one of those d...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

As I've noted before, many of your objections seem to center around death. So, let me ask, what makes death evil?
