Another response on Pietros questions as reaction on Alexander – see postings below, I like to bring this into play for further chewing
Try to read it till the last words – words of hopeFebruary 5, 2007 at 3:48 am #20824
I don’t know what everyone’s life stories are but common sense says if you don’t see it, can’t touch it, never have any experience of it, have no proof of it etc that it may very well not be there..
I guess people are just weak and susceptible..
Atheism doesn’t have to annihilate god(s) altogether it just says, hey, there’s a very good chance that there’s not.. there’s not even that much evidence that there is..
start from the gournd up that it’s questionable until experienced or proven..
Example: what do people mean by “Love God?” How can you love god? What is Love? What is God? what would be the experience of loving God?
Can you describe a palpable feeling or are these just words said?
Is GOD blind hope and somewhat hopeless faith in that hope?
Atheists dela every day with the immediacy of life, the raw true day to day experience of the fluffless details of life and circumstanceFebruary 5, 2007 at 3:50 am #20826February 5, 2007 at 3:56 am #20828
many atheists are the genuines.. the ones who get that this may just be it and you probably ought to be thankful just to have the trip called life..
everything else is icing on the cake..
the universe is a vast question mark.. perhaps nothing, perhaps everything..
there is life in atheism.. there is truth in the personal experience of love..
there is the immediacy of passion, music, art..
if it is lawless and you seek law then you establish law to preserve law..
the universe will continue to spin regardless..February 5, 2007 at 7:46 am #20830
You yourself call it ‘mystery of existence’… where you have the physical existence on one hand, and the mystery on the other.
So both are true, yet the one we can see, the other is unseen, yet is as much true.
You call the stars and the ‘heavens’, you call sex and you call good food… it all has a physical appearance and a hidden mystery, something you seem to accept if I read your title.
Yesterday I went to the zoo and I was caught by one animal in particular, the electric eel. Last night I had a dream where a man was holding that eel very close to my spine and I felt its electricity through my spine… which I can still feel awake.
So tell me what is true, and what is not true in this story?
So I transferred the power of the eel in dream time into my body because in real life it could not be done.February 6, 2007 at 12:43 am #20832
