QuoteLOL LOL LOL Like I said in a previous post it is obvious your mind/heart was made up the moment you laid eyes on my signature Shostik the MystikAnd there you are quite wrong. I hear user names and those like yours have no meaning for me - I just assume the person has got the idea from somewhere, or combined various letters together. The reason I use my own name is that I knew nothing about u

I take it then that you are aware that you do not have arguments which are strong enough to convince people like me, who will, you know, have our minds changed by more verifiable truth. I have read a few of your posts which make me wonder how you have managed to convince yourself that your claim of having ssomee special quality qualifies you to say that you are a mystic or something. Don'

QuoteOne day you might realize Edmond that ALL of your ideas default to the ACHIRAL/CHIRAL algorithm sir and how this algorithm is entangled with the last hard question in science necessary to reconcile with religion. And that question is 'what is consciousness?'I would say that it will never be ppossible to reconcile science with religion because the latter relies entirely on the human imaginati

Ray Posts tailing off here. Do you feel you know now any better about how it feels to be a Christian from your point of view? You have given links to various musical you tubes, but have, in my opinion, evaded any points raised which should have encouraged you to respond, even though you started the topic for, presumably, discussion.

Thank you for a most interesting post. May I ask, please, if you would give a very brief note of what the pictures are? QuoteGood point - you are definitely correct. I was wrong to say that. The accurate thing to say would be that "all humans seek acceptance from the social hierarchy as part of the instinctive drive". I think the drive for is for the more basic survival,more than for

QuoteAll humans seek superiority in the hierarchy of humanity as part of the instinctive drive to dominate others. I'd agree with almost all of your post, but am not so sure about this first sentence. \i have known those who did not fit into that description. They would be the ones who, in a meeting, or a gathering, would drift to the back because they did not want to be noticed or heard. Would y

QuoteAnd that is why I wrote the original post which you replied to. It was a response to Fuzzy. It has nothing to do with you or your thoughts on this matter, but rather it is a very specific response about "labels" and why some christians feel the need to label themselves in that way. And a very interesting post too. Susan

QuoteYou certainly love to Gish gallop, don't you, Susan? And here you are with another - inevitable, I suppose - avoidance. Anything to avoid actually responding to questions or points raised, even in a discussion you started yourself. But then - I don't think you wanted a discussion really anyway. Susan

QuoteMany Chinese feel themselves to be culturally blessed with their homeland and ethnic identity--which has absolutely nothing to do with their closeness and ability to communicate with God and the Spiritual world.How do you know you are communicating with 'God' and the 'spiritual world' and not your own thoughts and ideas? What is it that convinces you? Susan

QuoteI have written earlier that I will try to identify myself when I have left my body as in death by that rhythmic knocking, "shave and a haircut, shampoo" plus my name in morse code. I was delighted to read the same suggestion about the morse code in a book. I reckon that would be quite convincing, but not of course for you, Susan. You would probably say somebody trained a bird or

QuoteI think you just described how you got so lost--not only separated from the Spiritual, but even the thoughtful atheists.Well, you can think that for as long as you like, but you are wasting your energy and time! Again here, you are incorrect and you assume that spiritual has to do with a religious-type faith belief. And how dare you decide that I am lost?!! Please cite some of these 't

Firstly, thank you for respondin - I did wonder when reading your previous posts whether you were just going to very condescendingly dismiss me as some daft old dear, but the second half of your sentence here considerably lessens that thought!QuoteYou are a "non-metaphysical atheist" because you are denying

Quoteor more background, here's something to read: Sooner or later, serious atheists begin to doubt their atheism--and become agnostic. IMO, of course.I've had a quick glance at link, but will read more later. I quite understand about the agnostic bit - I long ago realised that there must logically beof course always a space, however tiny, for any 'proof' to be changed. However, althoug

As usual, when I turn on the computer each day, I read all the new posts hereabouts (and find it fascinating to see that apparently Yve claims to have read only yours and Eddie’s –- and that on a discussion board too where I certainly come to learn as much as possible about the ideas of others and see how they compare with my own, but there we are) and so I have read this one of yours and the sub

QuoteSusan, There's a big difference between a doubting Thomas (like in the Bible)--and a disbeliever. There's an even bigger difference between a disbeliever in Christianity, and a disbeliever for all Religions: the true atheist. getting all the way to atheism is quite an accomplishment--and takes a long time to accomplish.

Here is my response to your post. It is written with a few assumptions. If these assumptions are incorrect, no doubt you will let me know – I hope so anyway. They are that you are directing your remarks about ‘assertive atheists’ at me, since you have posted on a thread I started and appear to have picked up on other posters’ views on it. You have titled your post ‘psychology’ but I’m afraid you
