Goodbye RG

I'll likely lurk a bit, and see if any real conversations get any real response here. I won't be posting anymore though, what would be the point? Enjoy your religious wars.

Evangelicals, missionaries and the like.

Evangelicals of all stripes, be they basic christian, or LDS, or Witnesses, or Krishas, are annoying. They mostly are troubling to the religions that they target for their missionary work, because their tactics -work-. And people worry for their children. It's always about the children. As if, by the time they are old enough to decide on a religion, they aren't yet capable of making their own decisions.



What it really comes down to is just a continuation of the oldest war. The war to… Read More

Pseudo-Solipsistic Monist Dualism

How's that for a title?



So, I was asked recently if I am a solipsist. My answer was, basically, 'kinda, sorta, maybe but not really'. So I figured I would explain at least one notion that I hold, along with several others, that create a set of internally consistent cosmologies that are specifically inconsistent with each other.



I played with solipsism for a while. A girlfriend of mine actually had something of a nervous break, during some long experiments within her own… Read More

The problem of charity, motivation, and laziness

Once, a long while back, I talked to a man who, in our small town, amidst my small group of semi-mystical folk, was considered rather wise. I talked to him about a difficulty. That I had a hard time getting myself going on things. That though I had a lot of interest in getting things done, I had great trouble in figuring out how to get myself to do them. If I was interested, I would pour my all into something. At least until I got bored or distracted. I wanted to know if he had any idea what I… Read More

The Axioms of science

In terms of scientific methodology, an axiom is any statement that is simply assumed to be true, or self-evident. Either it cannot be proven/disproven, or is simply assumed for the purpose of conjecture.



Our current body of scientific 'knowledge' has two major weak points. First, it's reliance on a set of unprovable axioms, and the other it's reliance on inductive reasoning. I will discuss Inductive reasoning elsewhere, for now, let's look at axioms.



Our scientific… Read More

Sahareth, when you say, "The site is interesting.But I am not sure what to discuss."
Do you mean you find it difficult to discuss the whole site? Or just what I say in my blog?
Personally speaking, I do not find this forum all that easy to navigate, yet. Do you?
For example, it is not nearly as easy to navigate as is
www.brainmeta.com
http://brainmeta.com/forum/index.php?showforum=35 In this section, using the name Lindsay, lgking and Revlgking I write quite a bit about GOD--all that is Good, Orderly and Desirable--and how I came to use this acronym rather than the noun, God.
BTW, how do you define the god-concept?

I blogged all the absolutes together... I would be interested in your thoughts, especially in lieu of your comments about the power of Religion in self control.

These were designed as a model to evaluate courses of action, and pull out false motives, unrealistic expectations, and guide a person to making better choices in all aspects of ones life. Delete Comment

People in recovery often come from dysfunctional families and bad environments where they never shown how to live a moral life. Even if they were, they typically have had that information eroded by their behaviors in addiction. After awhile one gets tired of the moral compass pointing the other way, and they toss it. The absolutes are there to help but it back together again.

Hi Sahareth,

I read you post about being disappointed and wanted to say hello and ask you to please be patient.

There are all kinds here. I happen to be a Christian, but with a twist. I'm a recovered alcoholic who has played on every side of the tracks there is. I'm a martial artist with a fair understanding of life force (Chi of Ki) and its real life application. A lot of Christians I know don't have a clue, and lump it into "mumbo jumbo", but that's just a piece of life their missing out on.

Sid and I had a conversation before that the typical pantheist, Buddhist, and many other "ists" are are typically "Live and Let Live" people. They don't typically jump in the fray, but are instead dismayed that there is a fray at all. Thus the more "Structured" viewpoints get more "airtime".

Hang in there. You express your views well. If your looking for a warm cuddly place, it can get a little edgy here. That isn't necessarily a bad thing. I have learned a lot from the people most opposite my theology.

Jeff
