So then... has the server been down every time I've tried to connect?
I know it's not my network card. I connect just fine to the Unix Philosophia server.

Complaints, complaints. God is closer to you than your jugular vein, as they say in Islam. Stop yer bellyachin' and get serious. You remove yourself from the real attempt to communicate with God with all this cynicism, scepticism, scientism, empiricism, etc. Time to get non-rational - not irrational. Try the classic non-rational mode of communication - it's called faith. Believe and act 'as if' it's all true. Do an experiment in truth, but put yer heart into it! You have nothing to lose (except your recalcitrant reputation) and everything to gain, here and beyond.

Most people are still using 'dumb terminals.'


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I have a recalcitrant reputation now?
Shit... I thought I was just telling it like it is (as seen by me).

Markos... we've been over the whole "faith" issue how many times now?
Whatever... I'm tired of the same old shit-
"Sclorch, abandon reason! You're doomed without non-rationality (whatever the fuck that is)!"

Rational thought is reasoning based on a particular era. It is dependant on the thoughts and "truths" held by the people of that time. It varies decade to decade, century to century, NewJersey to NewYork.
What is considered rational and believeable today can hardly be held up from centuries ago (i.e. earth is flat.)

That being said it is a bit rediculous for anyone to have used such a tride and dull modern analogy to derive understanding in any form of "ancient" "or "holy" (or whatever self righteous adjective that pleases you) belief system.
If I actualy did want to go to church one evening, you could bet I would head for the first backlit bulleten board sign that held some catchy and ineffable phrase like "whoop there god is" or "roses are red violets are blue jesus can save everyone!"
Christ! I feel like I'm reading a JeffFoxworty book about bible studies.

Don't get me wrong, I find religions highly stimulating, and their histories rich in thought, money, and occasionaly embarassing hypocrisy. And I have taken a few hints from that Jesus guy and drink lots of wine and never serve water at my parties (and damn are sandals comfy) But I think that comparing what is supposedly" mighty and upon high" to somethig so blase' and human is discrediting and not very stylish.
Hell, catholicism is based on the desire to wear fancy robes and hats.

Paragraph 1- truth changes with time... a twist on relativism. I can dig it.

Paragraph 2- *stops laughing first* I agree... such texts shouldn't be constantly reinterpreted to better sync up with modern culture. Too bad the original authors aren't around to give us regular updates... Bible version 1.0 is sooo obsolete. It's like the 5? floppy.

Paragraph 3- How come the non-religious seem to get more stimulation from religious texts than religious people?
By the way, sandals ARE damn comfy (not stubbed-toe proof though).

Why is a person who proclaims there is no god any more a fool than one who proclaims there is a god?

NOTE!
I in no way claimed not to be religious. I just have a hard time not laughing at the concept of a god that is all knowing all powerful, all considering and yet will damn me to hell for being what is in my inherent nature to be.
And besides I've been to hell already, It's called Mississippi. Never go there.

Perhaps I ought to have said, in the language of Ken Wilber, "Transrational." This does not abandon the rational, but begins with it and then allows a higher logic or reason or logos to operate - independently of one's ego, I might add.

Yeah, well... that sound like a really swell thing. Transrational... FANtastic!
Okay... does it come with instruction or what?

independently of one's ego, I might add.
I suppose questions such as, "How does this work?" are off-limits, eh?

BANG!

Out of order. Please limit your comments to the psychosexual iterations.

Thank you.
