It is written by a noted apologist and philosopher. It explores how the reality of God's existence or lack thereof matters significantly in how we live our everyday lives. How we answer the question of God shapes the rest of our beliefs, for example perception of truth, morality etc...It does not deal a theoretical level of philosophy. More at a existential level attempting to reflect on the pains, sufferings, and meaning(s) of life.Omega_6 said:Please share how...and elaborate on the content of the book.PHP:
might that rabbi be Yeshayahu Leibowitz?Omega_6 said:Interesting. I have always been fascinated with books on religion and the holy books. There was one book I read (I don't remember what it was called) that was written by a rabbi who took an open view on religion. None of these books caused me to become a christian, however. When I was a kid my parents always took me to church, but when I was finally old enough (and confident enough), I stopped going. I guess you could say that I was never really a christian at all, even though I've been exposed to a lot of christianity. I would use the term agnostic to describe myself.
It is always nice to hear from the point of view of a non-fanatical religious person. What do you think about these questions? What actually made you become a christian? There has to be something in this book that really got to you.
Since it is a matter of choice, why not choose the alternative belief? If you're wrong you'll never know. You win either way.fedorfan said:I dont think there is a purpose of life.
er, have you tried evolving your Consciousness?alexsok said:Hell i went from being depressed to being normal to being depressed, but one thing keeps bugging me... whatever i do, there is no answer to that question!
I don't believe in this. there is a more accurate denominator in this space-time dimension other than just the speed of light. I once read about a researcher, after a solar eclipse in which he was able to measure the exact moment the corona appeared faster when measured at ELF (extremely low frequency) thru a gravity unit than when measured at lightspeed.bchmtnedisto said:think about this, some of the light we're seeing in our solar system is from billions of years ago.
I have another postulation for this; let's just say another of my rocket philosophy:bchmtnedisto said:you're probably trying to describe ether,or dark matter.however to this point e=mc2 has been proven correct.
doesn't matter really whether you believe it or not.it just hasn't been proven wrong.

"Since matter cannot exceed lightspeed, it duplicates instead when subjected beyond it."
I wonder if the recent physics books have already tackled up to this point. but in case it is yet to, just remember me . I view physics visually.
up to this point, I guess believing may contribute to the edge of physics (this is not subjective approach, but rather relative to speed of light). Consciousness after all, is faster than light. I guess that's the essence of what faith is all about. one cannot be wrong if he did not claim to monopolize right, which is the error of some religions, especially the violent ones. the edge of physics will be philosophy.
but the propnent, Einstein said that it's "impossible" to exceed lightspeed. what did he describe then when matter moves faster than light, other than any object would transform into disc-shaped when it approaches near lightspeed? if there's no sign of duplication, your present devices may yet need to be upgraded. there's still a lot to be done for us Earthlings to reach the technology of interstellar travel. the statement "your physics" seems a mistaken notion that the views I'm saying are subjective, which aren't. however do not limit my reality with yours, I prefer to perceive beyond that.selfAdjoint said:The behavior of matter moving faster than light is clearly described by relativity. For starters it has "imaginary" mass (as in square root of =1). There is no sign of duplication. You may view physics visually but that doesn't mean your physics has anything to do with either genuine physics or reality.
