    Systems, Theology, No path Path

    Howdy! I just felt like sharing some thoughts. The universe started with a divine dance. Not something like a waltz but something more like salsa. Shiva and Shakti came together, and their dance created all things. There was passion, lust, adventure, thrills, horror and so many other things...

    I am writing this in the Pantheism DIR because Omnitheism as I understand it is very similar to Pantheism. I would like to discuss with my fellow Pantheists about the change that I started to suspect will happen in the distant future. What I see this natural, pantheistic reality, where nature...

    Choose your reality: Trust wanes, conspiracy theories rise

    A poll conducted last year by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that just 16% of Americans say democracy is working well or extremely well. Another 38% said it’s working only somewhat well. Other surveys reveal how many people in the United States now doubt the...

    Call to abandon Atheism

    I know this will be hard to sell, but I'm going to try. From our earliest Paleolithic ancestors, the unknown has always been framed under a paradigm in which the presumption has been there is a sentience, a mover, behind observations humans have been unable to explain. From questions about how...

    What is Reality?

    In another thread, the phrase "respect for reality" was used. So what is 'reality?' Who determines what it is? Reality is commonly defined as the sum or aggregate of all that is real. Okay, so let's go from there... What is real? Who definitively determines what is real? Can we accept...

    World as Fairy-tale

    Time is an illusion, many sages say. After all, why do we see the number 2020 on the calendar and not 2010 or 2022, if we exist and are alive not only today and now? Therefore, the wise men should be put on a scientific track: time is real, but the passage of time is an illusion. A fairy-tale...

    What Is 'Real?'

    In another (non-debate) thread, it was asked what 'real' is. A response to that question was the Google dictionary definition, "actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact; not imagined or supposed." How can one be certain something is real given that definition? I'm fairly certain...

    Tools for Determining the Truth

    I posted this in a different thread and I think it may have merit to be analyzed on its own. One of the discussion that is common on most "religious" discussions is the issue of comparison of beleifs and claims. In this thread I will provide some of the various concepts and ideas I have either...

    Reality and the mind

    Have you ever experienced something you couldn’t explain, or had a dream that disturbed you because it felt so real? Have you ever tried to explain this to anyone only to be told that you have “an over-active imagination”? Since everyone perceives everything in their mind, “reality” can only...

    Mars Destroyer of Special Relativity

    Suppose an ultrafast spaceship flies in a straight line. It flies, without stopping. It passes the Earth at the moment of 0 seconds (of spaceship clock in the astronaut's cabin), and then at the moment of 0.0002 seconds spaceship meets Mars, and then, having passed it, it reaches Pluto at the...

    Does source of our semantics come from our deep connection with reality itself?

    Does source of our semantics come from our deep connection with reality itself? Is it a valuable observation? Or not, please? Regards __________ With thanks to our friend @dfnj. #7

    about "lack" of reality. Did they reject the Copenhagen Interpretation?!

    This year's experimental manuscript appeared in arXiv that says Reality and Absolute Truth is absent: Experimental rejection of observer-independence in the quantum world I was trying to find this manuscript a weak point. How does it satisfy (or not) the Copenhagen Interpretation? They like to...

    How do we conceive reality?

    Must we break down reality into its individual ports and study it selectively? Or collectively? How do you do it?

    How do we begin discussions on; Formations of reality outside the minds eye.

    Sing with me. As with all mental concepts, a coexistent reality must be understood within the mind before aspects of it can begin to be seen and form in the physical reality. The knowledge of a coexistent reality outside the mind, can be ascertained mentally or intuitively, possibly...

    Do you want me to create God or destroy God?

    Either way I am not bothered, God or no God I still die anyway.......

    Reality vs Atheism?

    Science does not know all, but something. This something includes: lost of Reality: That's on the table: 1) to lose trust in Reality, 2) to lose trust in Science, 3) to lose trust in Atheism, 4) to say "blah-blah":

    Martin Luther King’s Dreams of Christianity

    “As you know, if I were standing at the beginning of time, with the possibility of general and panoramic view of the whole human history up to now, and the Almighty said to me, ‘Martin Luther King, which age would you like to live in?’ ---I would take my mental flight by Egypt through, or rather...

    God’s Temple Mount Circumcision and Holy Bible Covenant Census

    Old Test-ament: "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." God tried to teach Man the difference between Good and Evil.---The Book of Genesis, 1:3, King James Holy Bible. God gathered dust of the Earth (Gaia) to create the first Human Man (Adam), and took one of Adam’s Ribs to...

    Garden of Eden "Pallas" Translation

    ¶ 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (“Heaven and Earth Company”). 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep (“Marketplace”). And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters (“Coins”). 3 And God said, Let there be light...

    How Profitable Was Eve’s Desire for God’s Forbidden Fruit?

    “This form is the one that allows a philosopher-in-training to advance to a philosopher king (or queen). It cannot be clearly seen or explained, but once it is recognized, it is the form that allows one to realize all the other forms.” –The Republic, Plato, Higher Learning Academy, 380 BC. “And...
