eyeofhorus May I second your post too, please? You know, I'd love to know what it was like to be an atheist in ancient times, say, pre-ancient Egyptian. Susan

I listened to this post... ... I considered responding but nearly 600 words is too long, particularly as most of it is all about you and sounded like a blog. It sounded to me as if you have some sort of perception that this topic and, possibly, Inner Space, is now your domain and are awarding the topic metaphorical points according to your judgement of it. I hope I'm wrong, but simply shrug my sh

You are, of course, right, Eddie! Ray wil do absolutely anything to avoid actually facing up to the fact that he, as a scientist, has a belief which relies 100% on faith with not a single scrap of objective evidence, presumably because he would also have to face the fact that this would compromise his position, however much I entirely accept that he can keep his belief away from his actual work.

Quote My "filter" in listening to Rupert is the filter of the American scientist. Yes, I accept that when you are dealing strictly with science, the filter of faith belief is left out, but you always have the filter of a faith belief when you are listening to such a talk.QuoteMy experiences talking (or rather not talking) about religion to fellow scientists was radically different from

I am not going to do any justification, but will certainly point out that there was not only no patronising in my post to Enigcom, but I have seen from his posts over the years that he is a kind family man and it would be lovely if he would show that warmth and caring side to his nature more.

Quote I'm still absorbing Sheldrake's talk, as well as his q and a session after. You are absorbing it through the filter of a 100% faith belief, a belief not substantiated by any objective evidence.

I think it is a most interesting scientific piece of information. I think we are very fortunate to have technology that enables us to understand it and photograph it. I realise and appreciate that the phenomena of nature are sources for wonderful imaginations to produce works of art in all the genres. I do not suspend my disbelief and imagine some God or entity organising the movement of planets

Quote In the autobiographical narrative I linked, Rupert shows himself early on to be a much more solid atheist than you were in your early years. How is that relevant? In my early years, I was in fact a firm believer in God; not the myths and stories in the bible which my parents were quite firm about were not supposed to be taken litrally, but were stories to help children grow up with good st

QuoteWell thought out. I have seen the makeup of this thing we call Life and know for truth that it is as I have put forth. It is massively beyond the materialists viewpoint. As usual, an airy-fairy, supposedly mystical presumably intended to be profound philosophical statement , but really an inane meaningless one, designed to reinforce your own self-importance. And this is such a pity, because

I'm sorry you see my (strongly held!) opinion as disdain; it is more anguished despair at the state of education, ability of the woo view to have so much space to move around in, the culpability of religious leaders who, by now, should have learnt enough about the hard sciences to know there is a total lack of objective evidence for any one of their believed supernatural entities/spirits/etc and

However interesting said idea was, it was entirely a human idea and proceeded from its antecedent human ideas. Quoteat some point, perhaps at a Time when humanity or Christianity would benefit.

That's a long post all about you. I did not listen to every word - what's the point? It is NOT a starting point for a discussion. It is a long personal blog moan. Find another place for it. It is difficult to keep on feeling sorry for someone, especially as we are not here to discuss personal problems. And of course the world is not a scam. .

Hmmm, not sure, but my first reactions are to say: (a) I think the word transcendant has too many ratherfanciful meanings implied in and inferred from it to make it a useful word in this context, and(b) it is one's attitude towards life and its endwhich sees them as cold and somewhat bleak or a delight at being and will have been a part of it all! Interesting - I'll have to think about it and

Quote I thought I might chime in... Are we asking if this is was Darwin 'meant'? Or, are we saying that the two concepts are the same thing? since the concepts have no objective basis anyway, each individual can think of it as they wish!!

A very colourful, well constructed, beautifully phrased, poetic piece of prose which can well be appreciated for all those merits, whether it was designed to be taken as fact or not. You will not be surprised, however, to hear that in my opinion it is also entirely subjective and contains several fallacies - although I am not good at picking out the fallacies with anywhere near the competence of
