  1. Thanks a lot for getting my thread closed...

    1. Strange

      Strange

      You’re welcome. I’m happy to help.

      Strange didn't get your thread closed, you did, by violating the rules.

  2. Seriously, giving me a point for soapboxing?

    You are an arrogant mod.

      TBH, I never read your posts until someone reports them for violating the rules. Sorry :(.

  3. The big bang reveals a problem with the materialistic view

    There can not be scientific answer to how space and time were created in an instant. Yes there is. The past only exists to the observer that exists in the present. It is only possible to have the creation of space-time occur in the past because the observer is observing the event in the present.
  4. The big bang reveals a problem with the materialistic view

    There is clearly an orderly distinction between past and future. The universe is moving from a high entropy to low entropy state. The big bang event was the highest entropy state of the universe. The motion in the present is happening as a result of the event. This distinction exists to create the motion in the universe that would allow the observer to exist. This would be how it relates to a higher power.
  5. The big bang reveals a problem with the materialistic view

    The event I am refering to is the big bang. By uncaused I mean that there is no physical cause that brought matter into the high entropy state. It doesn't rule out any higher power.
  6. The big bang reveals a problem with the materialistic view

    Yea it does, because all of the motion in the present is caused by an uncaused event in the past. It can't be an accident that the universe has an orderly distinction between the past and future.
  7. The existence of a starting point in the universe that all motion in the universe can be traced back to suggests that this motion is being intentionally created as the result of this event. The classical view is that matter is obeying the laws of physics as it travels through space-time. What is really happening is that a starting point is being created in order to lead to the motion in the present.
  8. Can the study of UFOs be scientific?

    If you accept witness sightings of UFOs, there is no reason not to accept witness sightings of other phenomena. Acknowledging witness sightings of UFOs opens the door for other phenomena to be acknowledged based on witness sightings. Once witness sightings become valid for one phenomena, they become valid for other phenomena as well. There must either be credibility to many phenomena based on witness sightings or no credibility for any of them.
  9. What is faith?

    Yes, we can... It has been a long 18 pages of discussion. You're right, it shouldn't exclude knowledge of the natural world. The purpose of looking inward is not to prevent one from looking outward. Although, the focus should still be inwards rather than answers. When trying to find answers about the inner reality, it only makes sense to look inwards towards it, for answers about it. The external reality has different answers to different questions, although it can certainly help in answering the internal questions by looking outward.
  10. What is faith?

    I'm only trying to make communication easier between us... It's alright....
  11. What is faith?

    I was trying to respond to a question. When the self is central to it's existence, there is some sense in placing faith in the self. It's more fundamental than egocentricity. Oneself can trust oneself that it exists. Once that is accepted, it can lead oneself down a path of faith. You do realize that I was only trying to answer your question... Sometimes, certain ideas are inherently difficult to explain or understand, or to communicate through words.
  12. What is faith?

    "Your" self is always yours. As long as "you" are observing from the perspective of "your" self, then "you" are the self. When you observe from yourself, then yourself is not separate from the self. So in this sense, one can place faith in the self rather than exclusively towards one's self.
  13. What is faith?

    I'm not entirely sure, if that's what your asking. I don't consider myself anything other than a thinker.
  14. What is faith?

    There's a difference between one's own self and the self. One can place faith in the self rather then one's own self.
  15. What is faith?

    Yes. It is one way to have faith.
