    A simple reason why creationism is false

    Why are you insinuating that that isn't merely the way it actually is? Apparently it is not intellectually satisfying if "everything has equal weight." But the opposite is also unfalsifiable.

    Philosophy: Should we eat meat?

    You are arguing against how dairy producing animals are treated in the US... but you have no argument why milk ITSELF is inherantly evil and cruel. I don't even Live in the US.

    Can you answer this unanswerable question?

    I don't know anything about Cartisian dualism, other thatn alot of people don't like it. but I have already posted a long introduction By Chris Langan which speaks about it, somewhere. I renounce this forum though because I feel this sort of philosophy is a waste of life. It merely gratifies...

    Can you answer this unanswerable question?

    I don't have arguments here. I do not like religion. I also do not care much about reality or "validity" it is true, please do not assume otherwise. I have no taste for reality, maybe parareality or transreality.

    If one being made the rules

    There's nothing I can explain about Zen philosophy, and if I were to guess, probably every member of these forums would hate it because it is not intellectualy stimulating. There is no philosophy, only spirituality. My Zen friend does not like religion, nor do I. I had a book of peotry and...

    Can you answer this unanswerable question?

    Which religions? In the bhavaghad-gita, 5000 years old, Lord Krishna clearly explains the creation of the universe which could be considered big bang, and he also states that it will also be annihilated. I've asked some scholars of the scriptures for the actual duration of the universe and I...

    Can you answer this unanswerable question?

    Apparently you got me. Again, the language is not suited. Okay, it is more accurately neither with time nor without time. The answer to "experiencing untime would take a certain ammount of time" depends on which perspective you use. To the perspective that exists within time, it might...

    Science Vs. Religion

    Real philosophy is the art of wonder, not the art of persuasion or argumentation. Presuasion and argumentation accomplish nothing useful except to gratify the ego. I am trying to be neutral in regards to both science and religion, but you seems to be against religion and in favor of science...

    If one being made the rules

    Predesination and free will are both illusions, yet they are the same and both real. My zen master friend says: the person with the most choise has the least reality, The person with the most reality has the least choice The macrocosm is "predestined," absoulte "free will" exists in the...

    Reciprocation between the self and the unself

    We do not choose whome we love. "We" do not love in the first place, love merely flows through us, it does not originate in us. We are its insturment. "we" do not love objects of our sences, not another body or a personality. "we" love the other outward flow of someone's spirit. Love itself...

    Spiritual integrity (why I rejected religion)

    Greetings. You are speaking about scripture, I agree with you. The Guadiya Vaishnavas (followers of Lord Chaitanya), say "For one who has seen the truth, scripture is as useless as a well on a riverbank. I have expanded it to say to a spiritual man, religipon is as useless as.... The...

    What happens after death

    It is because the brain facilitates consciousness and like As was said, chemical stimulations in the brain will affect consciouness just as consciousness will affect chemicals in the brain. It is like the difference between pushing a cart and pulling the cart. But the casue for mental...

    Is a god possible?

    You may be interested in Chris Langan's CTMU. I have not read it, I am probably not intelligent enough to understand it. here is a sample: Among the most exciting recent developments in science are Complexity Theory, the theory of self-organizing systems, and the modern incarnation of...

    Science Vs. Religion

    I would think that "attempts to explain" transcends any of those points, and that is a trait shared by science. Some of possioble motives behand science are: -to extend human life span (perhaps even indefinitely) this equates to "life after death" it is the same desire just transformed)...

    What happens after death

    I have seen the physical organism and even the subtle ones are something like "pressure suits." They allow the soul to interface with this dimension, this "frequency," like a deep sea diver needs a special suit to go into waters where the pressure would normally implode his skull. Soul doesn't...

    What happens after death

    There is no scientific principle that asserts that consciousness is a result of the biochemical reations in the physical brain. If there is, what is it? Tell me, please. This is a POSTULATE, not an AXIOM, although many people consider it an axiom because they have limited perceptions...

    Science Vs. Religion

    That is only relatively true. "science" IS religion. It serves the same purpose. Science seeks to explain and provide understanding. What is "usual religion"?

    Is a god possible?

    Hi. The consciousness that we use to comprehend the above thought is outside of our physical reality. We have no mechanism to descibe conciousness in an objective manner since it is a paradox that we cannot remove ourselve from our consciousness to do so. Consciousness cannot be fiction...

    Is a god possible?

    Why you ignore my commentary that God is possible if God is the information itself? Do you really want to know if God is possible or are you actually biased to believe that it is not regardless of what other prespectives say?

    "The theory is well supported by, well, every bit of data that science has discovered. We have evolution that describes the origin of man, we have psychology that has positively identified parts of the brain associated with our emotions, creative thinking, and other brain functions. We have...

    Is a god possible?

    Why does God have to be totally outside of the physical universe and why do we have be totally inside of it? This is a solipsistic argument. Moreover, why do you assume that there is a clear distinction between a physical universe and a nonphysical one like they are two rooms in a house? I...

    Can you answer this unanswerable question?

    In my perspective, God is not creation of man, dreamt up in imagination. That theory is very incomplete. It does not answer WHY we need to feel significance in our lives. If there were no significance to begin with, and all of creation is just a random, absurd, accident without any meaning...

    Can you answer this unanswerable question?

    Hi. In answer to the first one: It niether "lasted" no time nor infinite time, and obviously not fir finite time. There simply IS NO TIME. to the second: yeah, By using "before," I am. This is because our language is not well suited to desctribe things existing without time. I believe...

    Do we have ethical obligations to help others?

    This answer might shock you coming from me, but no, I disbelieve that there is any such thing as "ethical obligation" We may impose an "obligation" on ourselves, but truthfully, You behave "ethically" not "because" of anything. If we behave ethically because we feel obligated to, then it is...

    Is a god possible?

    I disagree. Religions personify God. Omniscence is possible for God if God IS the information itself. There is no question of gathering anything if God is omnipresent. :) God is possible if information is an aspect of God.

    Are all human actions motivated by self interest?

    It depends on the human. Why does it make anyone "feel good" though? It makes me "feel good" because it makes the other person feel good. That is why. This motive transcends "self" and "nonself" motive. It simply exists. I sponsor 6 children in 4 countries. To most people the little bit...

    Visual language and thinking visually

    Before we learn how to speak, our mind operates on a different "thought syntax," in my opinion a 1-3 year old's capacity for abstract thought is so much higher than an adult's-- of course, they have the disadvantage that they are new the the world and don't have all the means to express their...
