Re: Regarding Einstein

They are pretty good quotes, for a scientist. But it is still only a bit of dabbling on his part, a first hesitant step towards a deep understanding of reality. The quotes seem exceptional only because a scientist - i.e. a member of mainstream society - is making them. If someone on this forum were...

Re: Faith

you're suggesting i take a more agnostic stance? i can't imagine or rationalize God, but if he were presented to me without a doubt in my mind, then yes, i would have to accept his existence. i think this is the case with every non-believer. being a non-believer, i can't ever see this situation aris...

Re: Regarding Einstein

often, it is better to be on no path rather than the wrong one. einstein helped many others 'understand' the universe. he achieved more understanding than anyone on this forum. the 'genius' differs because they are under the illusion of understanding. einstein took a socratic point of view about thi...

Why do people always feel a need to uphold their own uncertainty as the final word for everyone? Because that uncertainty is the unanswered question they do not know how to form, not because they are incompetent but because they have no where to turn. If that was really the case, I would respond di...

nothing is essentially an arbitrary label. it's difficult to avoid semantics when dealing with nothing. nothing is something that cannot be experienced in any way by an observer and their senses/body or mind. the intention is to put emphasis on the word 'cannot', as the potential for experience does...

this is often an obfuscation forum. is it me, or are people excessively vague all the time on this forum?
