You and I are on the same page.

The page's position on the far right must be an illusion.

It is one thing to give our lack of knowledge and understanding to God. It is another to fashion God into that model which justifies our misanthropy. Especially when we actually have the technological capability and ability to help. As for the human cause, for too many reality of that doesn't extend beyond their own skin. Trump's presidency for example. It is his achievement. Crowning achievement. He can walk away at any time because he achieved it, and any movement of impeachment dismissed as fake news.

Like many of his followers, Trump sees an image of a god every time he looks in a mirror.

    ...of lack of understanding of physics onto nature. ;P
    • Physics "self" created its own laws?PH👀EY, Sun Oct 15 7:50pm
      It just all happened happenstance. I prefer Spirit but spirit too is a manifestation and not the source. I believe there is a 'God.'
      • Which came first...wondering, Tue Oct 17 8:26am
        chicken or the egg? nothing or something? God or people who want to be God? If God created man in his own image, man has certainly returned the favor. Nature or Mother Nature?

          The attempts to extrapolate the premier understanding into parsed rabbit holes have no appeal for my cosmology ....except perhaps as an exercise for intellectual trips into the light fantastic. One... more

            Is there really death? Is there really life? Or just being? Is a rock alive? Certainly there is motion within the rock, as there is motion within every atom. Does a rock cease to exist if it is... more
            • Yes, and perhaps a no.PH👍🏿👍🏿EY, Sat Oct 21 7:36pm
              The Jewish Book is a very audacious read. The final parts of the script state that God says to whomever is the author, that at the time of the end of human responsibility for man's miscarriage of... more

          It may well be the case that the laws of physics arose during that infinitesimally-brief period of time known as the "Planck time" (the time required for light to travel in a vacuum a distance of 1... more

            The egg came before the chicken. :)
            • Oh, absolutely!Poppet, Tue Oct 17 5:43pm
              Somewhere along the evolutionary path, there was a "first chicken," the first mutation that qualified as Gallus gallus domesticus (well, actually probably several...it's not that simple and linear,... more

                A scientist invents a time machine, but it is one-way; it only travels into the past. You can never get "back to the future"... A person who was born "immortal", i.e., he never ages, steals the... more

              these bright bulbs predict and then the prediction is "realized". One ought not to suggest a glass slipper just has to fit?

      • Your last paragraph.PH👻👻EY, Sun Oct 15 7:54pm
        So true. Now we can see why certain narcicistic ruler issued edicts to demand to be worshipped.
