The Game of Life and God

Recently I was watching a series done by BBC with the British Royal Astronomer about Physics and the Universe. The physicist's name has slipped out of my consciousness but I remember he was like a cat on the wall about whether the universe is created thru some kind of sapience or whether it is just ...

The Illusion of Reality

While we may never be certain whether we ourselves exist in reality or are just programs a la Matrix, what we do see around is illusory..pls see below argument. What is more important is to recognize how absolutely powerful our mind is and I'll use the mind's capability to argue an aspect of 'realit...

Re: Gravity

The way it was explained to me (something to do with M Theory I think, can't quite remember who explained it to me) is that if we think of a fifth dimension and imagine that being a trampoline, and then you put a bowling ball in the middle of the trampoline, then other objects will be drawn closer ...

Re: Gravity

Well, I may be being really stupid here, too, but your statement Logic tells me that any sort of interaction or communication between two objects happens because they are transferring data/information. doesn't sound right to me. I know it'll be difficult to specify, but you can try to see what does...

Gravity

I have been thinking a lot about this term, gravity during the last couple of weeks. It was triggered when I was watching the 'End of the Universe' program on History channel. The astrophysicists were explaining about the universe expanding and what they term 'dark energy' is responsible for the sam...

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

Hi Nirvanam, You raise many questions, it will take time to answer them. Replying in the order you raise them: Whose evil? Is what Nick calls evil, actually evil? Is what you call evil, actually evil? Is what I call evil, actually evil? Does this mean that you don't believe in the reality of evil? ...

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

mickeyd So you must think it possible that you do not exist. But your non-existence is impossible, because in that case you would not exist to think it possible. But you clearly do think it possible ("certain as one can be"). Therefore you exist - with 'absolute certainty'. I think you need to up y...

You raise a profound question, and I preface my remarks below by observing that the origin of evil is no...

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

Mickeyd,

A simple question to you... if what a human being does in say 100 years of his life on Earth becomes a reason for him to spend the rest of his soul's existence as in eternity in either hell or heaven...how fair is that according to you?

Re: atheism versus agnosticism

Animist, My two paise to your view on Islam... Being aware of the historical context under which a certain philosophy emerged makes you rationally look at the philosophy in a way that no amount of studying its theology, etc, etc would do. To understand Islam, it will help the most to understand the ...

Compassionist, I think you are right about free will and causality...in fact my root belief basically leaves me with no option than to know that you are right in your viewpoint. I believe that 'existence' is what we believe it to be and that all beliefs are equally true and false considering time, s...

Re: What is Evil?

No, I have failed to clarify what I meant. I will try again now. I mean that the choices we make are dynamically determined every nanosecond by the dynamic and constant interactions of the forces of causality. Because we are sentient biological organisms, genes, physical environments, nutrients and...

Yeah I saw it, doesn't he go to the cave where John supposedly had the vision, and find some suspicious looking mushrooms? Yep yep, it is that one. It seems those mushrooms are used as hallucination agents and they can induce a sense of reality to them. That's the reason, the program theorizes, tha...

End days prophecy...extremely sad reality

Guys, I watched this video - a documentary on the End days prophecy in the book of revelations, of the bible. The documentary is such a sad truth, it just strengthens your urge to quash such belief systems once and for all. It shows how the End-days believers are actually working towards the creatio...

Re: Do you question the History that you are taught?

This one is a fictitious account of how the AIT stupidity came about. There is liberal use of sarcasm (which I usually try not to use but in this case just couldn't resist) to drive home the point as to why the current accepted History should be trashed once and for all. Although the story is fictio...

How will you the rationalist agree to the change? What will you, the rationalist ask Mr.X as to why he is changing the account or why he is inferring what he is inferring?
