Original post at: http://www.unorule.com/what-is-reality/

As an engineer and science-oriented, I have always defended the empiricism of our reality. What we see is what we get. My two traumatic experiences have made me rethink some ideas on what we call reality.

They are mere conjecture, for fun, but I find them interesting because each one would have a logical point in the impossibility of knowing the absolute…

UNITHEISM + HOLOTHEISM--GOD (GØD or God) is All Being--the One from which all emanates, and the whole to which all proceeds

UNITHEISM+HOLOTHEISM and the philosophy, science and art of religions. ================================================

I like the concept behind the word 'panentheism', which I take as a doublet of unitheism. However, I prefer using unitheism because it avoids confusion with pantheism. Over the past month (March, 2009), while on holiday in Florida, I studied and underlined the book, The GOD delusion. As a result of this, it came to me to coin and add the word 'holotheism" to the dialogue.… Read More

Essay of the Week

2008 0529 Redefine God – Essay of the Week I



After reading Religion is a Product of Evolution, I read the research report published in Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Stimulation. My assessment: clever but not wise. Why? First of all, a software program - as I understand it - can only consider those variables entered, which are limited by the scope of the research question and the researcher’s epistemology. Now, I admittedly do not know much about artificial intelligence… Read More

Religion and Science

Two things before I engage in this rant:

1. My language will not be G rated. When it comes to this subject, I usually enter full-rant mode, no holds barred. (As an old friend of mine would say after such a tirade, "So, Kristen, tell us how you really feel.")

2. If, in the course of such a rant, I threaten physical violence on some person/group of people, you should know a little something about me. There's really no way I could ever actually hurt a person. For one, I'm… Read More
