Insanity has often been a way toward God. Look at all those who would claim to be God Himself.
Well, Transitional Logic or the Logic of Potentiality tends to accommodate this, but this is represented in a more consistent way as follows:Loren Booda said:Insanity has often been a way toward God. Look at all those who would claim to be God Himself.
Hey I just talked with GOD and “HE” said! I did not create insanity, rather insanity created me!InfPerf000 said:some people do not have it all of the time. Why would "god" "create" insanity?
Millennia ago people thought the insane were either blessed by the Gods or cursed by the devil. Then came the idea they were somehow evil in and of themselves. Last but not least they were viewed as having a medical problem. Today, all of these paradymes can be found to various degrees.Amir said:Easiest solution to every problem, denial! LoL! So now madness doesn’t exist? Wow what a concept. So many Gods so little time, pick the right one or go to hell? where does it stop?
Words and concepts only have demonstrable meaning according to their function in a given context. Again, what it means to be human cannot be reduced to one particular context such as chemistry or systems analysis. Each has it's own validity according to specific contexts, but is utterly meaningless in others.Amir said:Exactly, we are the “product” of our “complex environment”, I sometimes wonder why does religious text not mention space travel……..
No, I'm an Agnostic Mystic. Existence is the only miracle I need, and as far as I am concerned it does not require any explanation.Amir said:wuliheron: do you believe in GOD, if I may ask?
A very good point. But the definition of free will has to be cleared up a bit.InfPerf000 said:But if god created us then he would have meant for that person to have that defect in their brain, causing that person to have no or reduced free will, therefore disproving the fact that everyone is born with free will and has the choice to be violent or cause suffering.
God supposedly created ALL human beings with free will. Christains do not believe that some people are less than others, as an example to them.
The idea of a "god" is that they would be all powerful and all knowing, so they could not make mistakes.
God had choices:Enos said:God had no choice.
Correct ....and I strongly believe in this too. In fact this is one observation and statement of fact that I have been waiting for many years for someone to make. But then how do you reconcile this with those who turn God into a magician or a miracle maker, that is, those who treat God as if He/She/It is not following a procedure? This is a logical and quantitative nightmare for the faint-hearted.Enos said:I believe there are certain principles that even God must follow.
