How about this poem by Emerson 'The Over Soul'? 'That great nature in which we rest, as the earth lies in the soft arms of the atmosphere is that Unity, that Over-Soul, within which every man’s particular being is contained and made one with all other. We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty

QuoteI think the only thing you have avoided is why the word sin is still needed today and appears to be employed by the religious, I didn't avoid the word sin Susan, I just don't use the word, neither do I use the words thee and thou. When I was taught the ways to focus mind inside, no book was ever offered or forced on me to read or to live my life by. In fact it was seen as something of a jok

Gerda, I have a soft spot for Socrates, 'The wisest man, who knew he knew nothing at all'. he was taught in part by a woman, in the book ' The Symposium ' Socrates says he was taught "The Philosophy of Love" by Diotima, who was a seer or priestess. The book 'The trial and death Socrates' is a good read, The words of a 70yr old master defending himself against his accusers and his Answer

A simple question Susan but there isn't a quick answer but I'll have a go, even though you will read it only to find fault and push your atheist agenda. The word 'sin' has been twisted to mean all kinds of things by various groups. The proper translation from the Greek was as in archery 'to miss the mark' or 'to error', all the sinful soul stuff, born with original sin is incorrect, we choose wha

No Rob, that part wasn't very clear was it, but by using 'was to' rather than 'did' and surely most every one would be aware that a lamb was sacrificed instead. I thought that was fairly obvious, that's all. I agree that it demonstrates that human sacrifice is wromg.

Hi Gerda, Did Jesus have to be crucified? Well all the great masters through out time have had the possibility of their death hanging over them, if they challenged in anyway the power of the elite in their age. Jesus's master John the Baptist was beheaded and the master after Jesus, 'James the Just' who was Jesus' Brother, so much for virgin births lol was murdered reputedly either by stoning (F

Susan please try and keep up to date with SCIENCE! The further quantum physicists peer into the nature of reality, the more evidence they are finding that everything is Energy at the most fundamental levels. Reality is merely an Illusion, although a very persistent one. QuoteThink what a huge step forward could be made in knowledge and a world-wide awareness of objective reality if the leaders o

Hi Tom, Here is an experiment carried out by a German scientific team to test out Dr Rupert Sheldrake's theory that dogs can be aware of when their owners are coming home. The dog tested was called Jaytee, a small terrier. There are 2 experiments the other is carried out by sceptic Richard Wiseman who falsified his tests, pretty normal for these types. It is fairly obvious that an animal that hun

Hi Gerta You may already know this but just in case you dont Merlin Sheldrake is Rupert Sheldrakes son. He was the scientist who asked the question, 'Do dogs know when their masters are coming home', I posted a short film about a scientific study done by a german team on this and one done by a skeptic, who of course fudge/falsified the tests to make them appear to prove the theory incorrect, of c

Oh Susan common, just once in a while take off your Atheist crusaders armour and read what I actually posted. You took it out of context for starters and then seemed to add the word ONLY to my 'I like loving Christians', you were supposed to be a teacher did you do this when you were marking homework? Lets hope not. My position on this is - There are some fundamentalist Christians that scare me,

Hi Eddie its a shame we couldn't discuss this over a bottle of Red wine, I love history so we would probably talk all night. The main problem I see with your ramp theory is, Masada was not just a palace but also a fortified position and to leave a ramp that an enemy could use wouldn't be that good an Idea. Thinking of the shape of the rock of Masada one end has different levels so cranes I think

That's me Gerta, full of useless information, I have forgotten more than I remember though, old age and all that. Let me say that the Jesus 'character' was a great teacher, for instance his sermon on the mount is so beautiful plus many other of his sayings. Like wise his teacher John the Baptist and his Heir, his brother 'James 'the Just'. Its all in Acts if you really look. Jesus' brother has ju

Redblade Sorry for the length of this post but this is a big topic. I agree with you to a certain extent, as you say QuoteThe Bible talks in riddles and symbolisms and with twisted stories that contradicts itself.
