Re: Who-is-really-in-control-of-your-mind?

Our choices are not free from causality. Genes, environments, nutrients and experiences determine our choices.

Re: Is God evil or imaginary?

There is nothing fair about this reality we find ourselves in. The evil ones prosper at the expense of the innocent ones e.g. evil factory farmers profit at the expense of the caged animals, evil slave owners profit at the expense of the enslaved, evil murderers profit at the expense of the murdered...

The impossible

I think it is impossible to truly know someone else. Only you know what it is like to be you. Only I know what it is like to be me. Unless one has lived in the brain and the body of another person, one can't truly know what it is like to be another person. If I had the genes, environments, nutrients...

Re: Is God evil or imaginary?

We live in an evil world where only suffering, unfairness and death are guaranteed for sentient biological beings. I wish I could prevent all suffering, unfairness and deaths but I can't. I hate this horrific reality. I wish I were all-powerful because then I would have ensured that no one ever suff...

What ruins life

Life would be awesome if there were no suffering, unfairness and deaths. These things ruin what could be an amazing experience. I feel so much grief about all the suffering, unfairness and deaths. I wish I could go back in time and prevent all suffering, unfairness and deaths but I can't. If I were ...

Re: Why don't religious people just go to heaven?

Well, there's always the chance that you'll be of the wrong religion and worship the wrong god. Then who know where you will wind up! :wink: Indeed Ken. I am agnostic about the existence of heaven and hell and resurrection and reincarnation and the existence and nature of all the gods of all of the...

Why don't religious people just go to heaven?

Billions of people on Earth believe that when the die they will go to heaven. Why don't they just kill themselves and go to heaven? My brother died at the age of 8 days because the doctor made mistakes. My parents told me that my brother went to heaven to live there in happiness for ever and ever. I...

Creating an egalitarian world

The world should be one democratic country where everyone's human rights are protected equally by laws. We should all have universal basic assets and universal basic income. We should all receive according to needs and contribute according to abilities.

I wish this forum was as active as it was when it was created.
Times change and people move on, Compassionist. Sadly perhaps, but inevitable.
Yes, this is a world of impermanence.
