what you guys are arguing about is a basic misunderstanding of terminology. Allmakescombined is talking about the human capability of achieving pure EXPERIENTIAL understanding. Logical, thought based understanding, however , can never be called universal, absolute or even really true, They are however two entirely different ways of understanding reality. Any argument, idea, thought or conclusion can be argued or disproved. An experience such as that achieved by the gnostic, is beyond thought, and therefore beyond contradiction of disproval.

And when i said that stuff about being bored with culture, i was talking to psitripper, not you allmakes.

peace

what depresses me the most is the fact that most people never even discuss or even question these types of things that you guys talk about. most people, it seems, are too busy with consumerism. i struggle with it too. i desire to get rid of things such as my tv. sell such things and use the money for a good purpose. i can never seem to let go of my possesions though. i feel like i've been brainwashed towards consumersim since i was a child or something.

i wish i could just live on some island with nothing but books and loved ones. just devote my time to the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. grow in spirit. i want something drastically differnet. i am getting bored with the structue of the culture i am in. it seems so shallow.




I was forced to rid my self of possessions a couple of years ago. I didn't realize I was caught up in consumerism, but I realize, in hindsight, that I was.

You don't need to live on an island. You can experience a life devoid of consumerism where ever it is you reside. I reside in one of the wealthiest counties in the country, but I have nothing, really, compared to what people here own.

And I devote most of my life to spirituality, and figuring out the Universe, and why we are here, etc. We don't need to live on the top of a mountain to figure life out, or to be spiritual.

The biggest challenge of all, imo, is to live in society and still manage to figure it out, to come out on top. Not come out on top financially, but to come out on top spiritually.

yeah i did not mean being on the island so much for isolation. i would like to live in a tropic region becuase i love the beach and warm weather. i just meant it would be the ideal place for me. thank you for the reply Frog.

How does one know what religion or God to follow? I sometimes wonder if the same God is responsible for all religions and doctrines. Maybe he just gave bits and pieces to each culture, but in ways that it would fit that culture. Any thoughts?

So... does God have a Creator of its own? Did God once not exist, then began existing inexplicably or did God always exist? :confused:

If God has always existed and has no beginning (and presumably no end), then it is a continuum without endpoints. Why assign a hierarchy to something that can't be framed with that concept by implying that God is somehow superior to each of us and should be 'followed'?

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

I'd just like to say if there is a God(I believe there is), such an entity would be so far beyond our comprehension that any attempt to understand it could not encapsulate even a small fraction of it nature. It may well be that those who say there is a God and those who say there isn't are both right(or both wrong), as our rules of logic can only account for so much of this reality(study quantum physics and see just how counterintuitive it is--then imagine how much more of our universe is still unknown).

If this is so, then it renders a seminal understanding of the universe (a creation of God) forever out of reach. A universe without an ultimate explanation irks me and seems inconsistent with the humbling and deeply moving beauty of both nature and the mathematics being used to characterize it.

God is and God isnt.

but at least he is when i want him to be.

if i believe i am a figment of *my god* and that my god is a figment of *something else* et all.

then im just a part of the never ending story.
