There is an abundance of evidence for the existence of philosophical atheism, Ray, which seems to have emerged and spread across Europe and the East in the fifth and sixth centuries. Indian Philosophy In the East, a contemplative life not centred on the idea of deities began in the sixth century BCE with the rise of Jainism, Buddhism, and various sects of Hinduism in India, and of Taoism i

Trust you. Perhaps you ought to read the actual scientific research findings before you offer your two cents. You know, the kind of science you demand in other threads. Loon.

Perhaps you should read this research on peacocks from 2018: The authors state: QuoteHere, we report the first genome sequence and comparative analysis of peacock with the high quality genomes of chicken, turkey, duck, flycatcher and zebra finch. Genes involved in early developmental pathways including TGF-β, BMP, and Wnt signaling, which have been shown to be involved in feather patter

Robert in response to my explanation, you present this unsupported opinion: Quotethe peacock seems to be transitioning from birds that make their living flying - to a flightless bird Transitioning? Do you mean evolving? And for how many years have you studied the peacock as a species to reach your conclusion? Or is it just another unsubstantiated opinion you would like others to sw

Robert Acknowledging your error in respect of the peacock's ability to fly, you wrote: Quoteit seem (sic) some of the younger and healthier peacocks are able to fly short distances. So I probably should have said; “ … robbing the species of most of the benefits of flight.” There is no 'seems' about it. They can - and often do - fly. As for you limiting the damage by inventing the idea

You cite a page from your book in which you criticise Darwinian theory - indeed, going so far as to describe it as a 'Dead End' - by stating the following: QuoteAnd the peacock's tail is so large and cumbersome, robbing the species of flight. My issue with your problems with Darwinian theory is that your attempted rebuttal of his theory - such as in this example quoted above - is plainly wro

No. If our future behaves just as the past serves to demonstrate, the Jesus Christ as god-man you choose to worship will have been consigned to the graveyard of dead gods. It is only by the accident of your birth - a 20th century westerner, presumably Caucasian - that you are a Christian. Had you been born in Ancient Greece, you would have been a polytheist worshipping Zeus, Athena, Aphr

It is just that ... garbage. God Gamete theory ... how many different ways can you find to polish a turd? Stop clinging to nonsense simply because you have invested so much time developing it, Robert.

I think Sheldrake is completely mistaken in the last point you make, Ray. One need only visit churches which stand almost empty on Sundays, or sparsely populated by a predominantly aged congregation, to realise that there is no "post atheistic revival" of interest in God or spirituality here in the UK. QuoteThe number of people attending the Church of England’s Sunday services fel

Ha. To be fair, I did use tentative language, such as "perhaps", "arguably" and that "Brophy proposes" and "Brophy suggests". Who am I to argue with an astrophysicist? :)

There is an enormous period of time in deep history that lead up to the Dynastic period where these people developed their abilities to produce all that work, but all evidence of that period of necessary 'stages of developement' has been wiped from the record somehow from some other unknown cataclysm.

I quote you verbatim and your response is to ask: "Where do you get this?" Doh! Then you attempt to clarify what you contend is my misconception by providing me with yet more evidence of their spiritual belief when you state: Quote This is exactly what the pyramid was for; to remind them of their king. By being reminded of him he could continue to watch over his people eternally.

Daniel My questions to Armand were posed in the conversations I had with him in this very thread dating back to May and June 2014. I suggest you read that conversation in threaded view and then you really can keep questions that I posed to him and which he said he would address (and never did!) in your mind, too. Feel free to respond if you can answer my questions yourself. :)

This statement of yours is evidence of their belief QuoteHe was no longer a corporeal being as you or I but was the pyramid by day and the star by night. Because you have tied yourself up in knots more tangled than the cables behind the TV unit in most people's living rooms, you then speak out of the other side of your mouth at the same time by claiming: QuoteThey obviously didn't think l

It doesn't. I assume Sam thinks it is cremation for the dead king ascends to the sky "on the wind" (Pyr. 309) However, the notion of ascension profilerates: these are translations by J H Brestead: 'Development of Religion and Thought in Ancient Egypt' (Chicago, 1912) QuoteThy two wings are spread out like a falcon with thick plumage, like the hawk seen in the evening traversing th

The church would not encourage its congregation to familiarise itself with what remains of the gnostic gospels because it worked unceasingly at their rejection, suppression and destruction from the 4th century. If only we knew all the reasons why.

I asked you: 'What might have prompted a people to cremate the dead body of their king atop the pyramid?' You responded by writing: QuoteIt was ritual. No more, no less. Specifically it was the part of the rituals by which the king ascended to heaven to become a star and a memory and acquired its name. It's how the pyramid became the king himself (Khufu's Horizon).

to which I'd appreciate two brief answers please, Sam. (1) What, in your opinion, is the reason why the Great Pyramid was built? (2) What might have prompted a people to cremate the dead body of their king atop the pyramid? I look forward to your replies. Thanks, Matt

Mark To question the veracity of the 'content' of a work of oral rabbinic literature until its transcription centuries after an established literary canon is akin, in the opinion of Kabbalists at least, to questioning the veracity of the 'content' of the gnostic gospels. Proponents of an established 'canon' always dismiss other works as apocrypha or, in this case, pseudepigrapha. One int

The wood will be carbon dated, as has wood which has been dredged from the 'money pit'. Fragments of human bone and parchment which have been retrieved from a greater depth than the logs revealed at Smith's Cove suggest a much more recent date than the one you are proposing.

Interestingly, there is also a Muslim sect who claim the tomb in Srinagar to be that of the 'prophet' Jesus. Of course, this notion must be ridiculed by the Christian church: "I've learned love is like a brick: you can Build a house or sink a dead body."

What do you think of the idea that Jesus, having been taken down from the cross, did not die in Jerusalem - hence the empty tomb - but survived and died years later in India? The tomb of a crucified man in Srinagar, India. The Roman Empire never reached India ... crucifixion was not a known form of punishment, and yet there is a tomb of a man who bore the wounds of crucifixion. Thoma
