There is no " Objective Reality to Religion and Faith " That was reviewed in one of those blessed posts! Religion is entirely materialized by the worshiper or the faith practicer. ( Whether it be of divinity or not )Fancy words that don't apply here.Sorry I couldn't read the rest, but after that introductive thesis it's no use is there?
-P.S. Us intellectuals tend to over-analyze things don't we?
-Damn, and I went ahead and read it anyway, Language Removed
" You simply have belief in the usefulness of belief "
>What the hell is that? We're not even IN the same
ball park are we? Splitting hairs is accepted here, but this does not make any sense ( excuse me ) The belief in the usefullness of belief.
That is one of my beliefs, sure...Hmm......Language Removed,
don't even know where to begin with a response
that I believe you are begging for but aren't sure
how to ask for.
Oh, the only thing else I'll acknowledge is the
happiness thing. NO no no no no no.....
I said it BEFORE in greater detail, but ya didn't
pick it up. What is suggested by logic, faith,
and the pop. norm, and is also viewed from experience is that life ISSSS in fact the pursuit
of happiness ( and no , Thomas wasn't the first to say it, he stole that as a matter of fact )
That is all that matters. Now I also said that this and only this was the attitude totally acceptable if and only if that person seeks happiness with regard to others. I said that befer! Damned it!
You said that you were a relatively happy guy.
Can you tell me why? I bet it has something to
do with having found yourself, contentness, etc..
etc...blah blah blah, am I right? That's GREAT!
WONDERFULL, and more power to ya. The beliefs you
hold allow you to see yourself as an intricate
piece in the BIG puzzle that is your enviroment.
Those beliefs could be Scientific, Philosophical, or whatever. They are still beliefs, and I respect them. You are seeking happiness and pretty much found it with regards to others.
I know you've got to be gettin it by now eh laddy?
P.Ps Keep em commin!
