Can an atheist seek Wisdom?

Post by attofishpi »

:?:

Are we in a Simulation or Divine Reality? :-
www.andrewseas.com

...what was that thing that was insisted on by the incarnate of the system - faith?

Sage wisdom is not gained from atheist knowledge, it requires a degree of theistic faith to be given such insight.

An atheist can be wise, but there is a limit - since the God system has asked us to seek and ye shall find - it insists on FAITH first.

Atheist philosophy is a contradiction in terms.

Yep! As I was cooking my salmon dinner 4am - about ready to eat - I was thinking exactly that! FUK IT!

Just changed the thread title.

Why couldn't they or wouldn't they seek whatever, just like a theist?

Are you defining wisdom and knowledge as something specific that you think it is? And are you suggesting that theists do it a certain way?

People can do all kinds of things, regardless of their affiliations or lack of them. Platforms and stories do not own the rights on anything... do they?

And no individual humans or platforms can realistically/honestly define/decree what everything is or must be for everyone else.

Do you agree/disagree?

I'm not sure how theists do it, or manage to get to the point I am at. Most of them are too short sighted and irrational from what I have seen on the whole.

Everyone has their path in life. From my sage, reincarnation exists. I was put in to the womb of my mother by the God system. I lived a previous life.
My guess is, in my previous life, I remained in faith - seeking the truth about God. Now I am in heaven, I received the truth, although there is VAST amounts of knowledge and understanding that I wish to continue to learn.
Indeed, my ultimate goal, and it is entirely feasible, is to become a sage. To exist without dying, without losing my knowledge but able to continue building upon it. Perhaps to view the life and soul traversal of someone, as my sage has done with me.

With atheism, this is impossible. An atheist can be wise, but there is a limit - since the God system has asked us to seek and ye shall find - it insists on FAITH first.

Are you saying that "sage wisdom" (as you know it) is the only true wisdom? So, your question wasn't really open to any other answers?

Seriously, atto… try to set aside the labels and ideas of theists and atheists just for a minute. They're severely limiting you.

Try to see everyone as an equal and natural creation/expression, regardless of the role or appearance that energy takes. Why would this idea of "wisdom" be limited only to those who assume certain roles and stories? And why does each person or group who thinks they are on the "right path", think they are the only ones who can see it?

Why would the vastness of the universe, on so many levels, be limited by human roles and paths and definitions?

Okay, why would that override or reduce any other possibilities for other people?

Yeh, me too. :)

But only if they're within a certain range that you already feel certain of, right? Only if they fit into the story you're already living/experiencing. Otherwise, they are "false" to you, right? That's okay... but why reduce "wisdom" down to what YOU know and experience. Can you not allow and celebrate the idea of vast wisdom beyond yourself, that other people are accessing?

Maybe for you. Maybe you don't have the wiring to function beyond your current programming. :)

The same is true for theists or any human.

You created this thread and posed a question. I responded and asked you thoughtful questions, which you say are wasting your time. Your mind was closed when you posted the thread, right? So aren't you actually the one wasting other people's time and being disingenuous about "learning" anything beyond what fits into what you think you know?

You are not learning anything from me, and I certainly am not learning anything from you...so i insist stop wasting both our time.

If any atheist\theist wants to address me in this thread, sure, but I don't deal with 'spiritual atheist' waffle.

A concept/label of your contorted creation based on the limits of your mind.

I was speaking of natural spirituality that is not based on religious concepts... but you apparently don't know how to think without religious concepts.

You can't even fathom spirituality THROUGHOUT ALL. Absurd theist! :lol:

So you have been too busy with your head up something to pay attention to the mainstay of my argument - from my website (note point 2.):-
(Simulation or Divine Reality? www.andrewseas.com)

I am resolved to two most likely states of matter:

Either:-
1. God is divine and constructs our reality in real-time.
2. 'God' is A.I. - artificial intelligence - that we have evolved into a simulation (see simulation hypothesis).
NB. The reason we would evolve into a simulation is to conserve resources as entropy increases.

So what exactly is Pantheism\Panentheism to you if it is NOT "THROUGHOUT ALL"? Now how does your petty childish laughing emoti look?

THROUGHOUT ALL includes anything you might label "atheist". ALL is ALL -- it is not divided/exclusive as defined by your (or anyone's) superficial and contrived notions that imaginatively distinguish themselves. Can you set your labels and judgments aside to see/hear what is beyond them?

"Can" or "Does," the answer is obvious. Of course one "can," just like one "can" seek for El Dorado or Atlantis. Whether or not they "do" seek for El Dorado or Atlantis is a question they will have to answer for themselves.

You "can" seek for rubies in a mountain of rocks.

One can "seek" anything. But that doesn't mean it's going to be found on those terms.
