    Recently a member of this forum said that it is possible we are actually not living this life, our brain is in a jar and we are living a simulation like matrix. I agree. It is possible.

    Anything is possible if you think about it.

    From the start in the Garden of Eden people were to be ' bathed with love ', so to speak.
    Everywhere in the paradisical Garden was evidence of God's love for us humans.
    So, all humans were to love each other.
    What we are Not to love is the ' wrong ' a person does.

    I would say that in present time, i still have boundaries that is up toward those who truly have done evil toward others. I do not know if i will be able to lower that boundaries and be able to unconditional love anyone

    We do have the example that Jesus wanted the Roman soldiers at his execution to be forgiven.
    Even wicked people are loved by God, but are expected to ' repent ' if they don't want to ' perish ' - 2 Peter 3:9

    Not for humans, but do you believe that God loves us unconditionally?

    Actually, there are highly educated philosophers who make the same argument to show that anything is "possible" or/and we have no certainty of anything, this could all be a dream, etc etc.

    But that's just it....there is certainty!
    Remove a person's heart, they die. No food, no water, no air...they die.

    Math has structure, it always makes sense.

    Saying life is a dream, is ignoring those standards, probably for selfish reasons....

    IMO

    Probably not with our own human love.
    Just what this love might look like in practice could be interesting also. It might involve killing people you love because they are out to kill other people you love.

    Question: if you loved every human being unconditionally, would you be able to kill someone who did not love unconditionally? I would not be able to kill an other human being, even now when i still am unable to love fully unconditionally

    Actually we can't say it's possible until it's proved to be. It's not impossible either.

    Is it possible for it to be possible? ;)

    Lol. Not true Aketo. If its proven, then it is fact. We generally go by probabilities in any case of historicity, not possibilities. Thats why when evangelists speak of possibilities it is not considered whatsoever.

    A possibility is a possibility, not a certainty or a probability.

    I dont know why people get hooked onto these things so much anyway.

    Brother. Killing someone can never be assessed just like that. When humans are put to the test, pressed and placed in a desperate situation they might resort to killing for very many reasons. I think I am not capable of killing a human being for any reason. This is the perception of myself that I possess. But I have never been put in a situation so I am only making an assumption.

    No I'm not saying it has to be proven. I'm saying it's possibility has to be proven. Probability is used for proving it as a fact not for possibility.

    Speaking only personally (not for what others will do or not) I will rather die my self than killing an other human being. that is just how i am. And yes i have been in a situation where i could have died if i did a wrong move. I do not know is that is reason enough to hold a view that killing is wrong in any situation. But it has become my personal view. Is it a wrong view? it could be, i do not know :)
