Hi Sandy, have you read “Following Philo” by P J Gott and Logan Licht? They agree that most of the New Testament characters were Romans. They suggest that the man named in the subject bar was the historical Jesus. Sounds like you may have read this book. He is also known as Drusus Julius Caesar.

“If we take the supernatural side of Jesus away, it's very hard for me to see him in a heroic light, because he was essentially an ordinary man who set himself up as a cult leader.” That is a really interesting point of view. We don't see human beings as possessed with supernatural powers but then we don’t see creating world wide religious organizations as a very big deal! I guess that is j

Good morning Darryl, I think what we experience is reality, when we study and analyze reality, we build models of the Nature of reality. So, yes, I think that everything is interconnected, it is the things we experience that are interconnected. Your use of computer technology is an analogy. And, nowadays, an interesting one. But we are composed of atoms organized in cells. We are way too

“Those of us interested in perception have always felt that physicists were completely wrong in the way they conceptualized light. To us, it's the ability light could have to represent the "real world" directly that's a critical piece of the puzzle. ” But light does represent the “real world” directly. So I don’t see your issues based on these statements. Sorry Ray. The issue mi

“The problem is largely one of language. With language (nouns in particular), we break reality up into objects. But it's really a wholeness without any fundamental separations.” We only “break up” reality because we have to break it up to understand it. We have the names Darryl, Eddie, Ray, etc., because we have Darryl, and Eddie and Ray to deal with. We are similar creatures but not the sam

QuoteSusan stated Materialism is absolutely not an 'alternative' to spirituality. They are both labels for different aspects of life and thinking. Spirituality, whatever and however people choose to define it, is absolutely not the prerogative of faith belief systems. Everyone has a range of thoughts on a material/spiritual scale. Well said Susan.

I’m afraid that I don’t know Josh. But 600 pages! I understand your malaise. Any way, Barbara Thiering is a trained biblical scholar who does not interpret the texts we have with any supernatural dogma. That’s the title “Jesus the Man.” Jesus was a man, a religious leader who became a cultural hero to many. I share your independent nature.

“The book I'm reading today is The Unbound Soul, which exacts an awareness factor not found in much literature. It is about the Isness, as the author calls it. This Isness is already inside of us. I tend to think of childlike innocence as the nearest explanation for this attribute gained with the practice of the book. ” I liked that book a lot Tom even though I am preset different person from

Ray, we have operated for years and years by thinking that what we say is separate is separate and what we say is combined is combined. This is the core consent of human absolutism. We should always have been understanding our perception of the world about us as relative. That is the separate is combined at times and the combined is separate at other times. Things are entangled always were.

Thank you Susan for posting this interesting program. I was quite heartened when I listened to it that in England they would include 3 professional philosophers in the discussion! That said, the discussion focused on the origins of atomism in Greek philosophy and followed it up to the time of Galileo, Newton, and Descartes. The 41 minutes did not allow them to deal much with contemporary phys

QuoteDarryl stated However, it is important to bear in mind that it's us, because we came out of it. So you are God, and I am God. But in this state of creaturely limitation, we cannot feel our totality. And, if we can’t feel our totality, then we are not total and probably not god’s. But I like the idea that we humans’ are “god creators”. God could simply be one of the emergent processes

Hi Darryl, you might find. Barbara Thiering’s book “Jesus the Man” interesting. She handles the 3 hours of darkness issue in how the ancient “Essenes” handled time and calendar theory.

“The full force of the Chinese and Mexican tariffs and subsequent retaliation would mean that consumers are facing an additional $3,994 in costs because of tariffs, more than four times the $930 tax cut for middle earners that the Republican Party touts as its signature legislative achievement under Trump.” From here . The impact calculated here seems a bit high to me. But costs will be p

Some folks are just old fashioned Susan. They like the historical ideas. But , to my mind, there is really nothing supernatural about these ideas just super to some people.

“God was on the side of our forces etc. Behind it was the accepted CofE belief and that took precedence. ” God is an idea about life. And life is very precious to most people. God = the preciousness of life. It is that simple. “It is, yes, only with hindsight that one realises there was in religious beliefs anassumed superior authority. ” Yup, religious texts, like most of what we hum

Actually Gerda, I agree with you, while I don’t think that Jesus was like the Buddha, I do think he was for the golden rule and for loving one another. But he was not the Pope of the organization and he worked through guys like John Mark, Peter, Paul, and lots of others. They were the “Organization Men!” So it may appear that there was no church organization, but I suspect there was.

Hi Jacob, when people buy things, they trade money for goods or services. On a short term basis one of the parties to that transaction might be ‘winning’ and the other ‘losing.’ However, long term the situation might reverse. I suggest that the people who buy foreign might be making the better choice for themselves. The buy the stuff because they are getting a deal, that their home manufa
