General Chit Chat / Thanksgiving problem
« on: November 26, 2008, 01:50:56 PM »
I have a problem =/ Should I spend my thanksgiving day with my gf at her house or my family at my house?

They already have a lot of guests so they can't come over and my whole family can't go to her house. But they invited me to spend thanksgiving with them. Do u think it's wrong to spend my thanksgiving with my girlfriend at her house rather than be with my family? I don't know what to do =(

As for the theories themselves ... as a Christian with some time thinking outside the box, I usually tend to wrap up a lot of the hows I've come with to God.  I don't see God as a single figure shaped like we are ... not in any size ... but rather I've come to see God through a more hindu like way, I guess you could say, where you see everything in existance as one thing ... I see that as God and we're all parts.  Do I have proof?  No.  I learned in college that nothing can be proven, only disproven.  And I've learned from God's Word that we're all imperfect (as well as from my own life's experience).  So, when it comes to theories of Creation and God, I know I can only keep learning but never cling to any idea that I KNOW!  I can only feel I have the answer and keep investigating.  I'm sure it'll come in time.
If God is in some way encompassing of us all, and we are all imperfect, does this mean God is also imperfect?
What are we imperfect compared to?

That is exactly what I argued against in my post. God cannot encompass the physical world which is bound by time and space. God's existence is not dependent on time which allows for space and for the physical universe. And so, there is the division between the physical world and God which supports the idea that God is separate from us (in the sense that I'm talking about, not in a deistic sort of sense) and not stained with our imperfections. We fall short of God because God is perfect and we are not. This is the division.

You have interesting theories but that's just it, theories. I can spend all day with you arguing numerous possibilities of what may or may not be. However, we won' reach a definite conclusion necessarily.

"My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just to enjoy the ice cream while itís on your plate."

That's not to say that we it's wrong to spend time to reason ourselves through specific questions, but there comes a point where you should stop. For instance, I believe in God. Why? Because through all of creation my reason bends me towards leaning in that belief. Could I be wrong? Yes. Do I think I am? No. However, when I start asking myself "where did God come from?" Now, I'll be in an infinite loop.

Regarding what happens when we die. I agree with you only partially. Our energy doesn't go anywhere, this is true, but despite this, I don't believe that our physical body's energy is necessarily our spirit or anything of the sort. Also, I believe that you put too much emphasis on a scale or physical and non physical. As Marcus Aurelius said, "A man is a little soul carrying around a corpse." I don't believe there is the matter to be discussed of the distinction of the corpse on the body but which is essential and which is not. Our life is what is essential, and this lies in our ability to perceive with the aid of bodily functions. Are thoughts physical? Not necessarily but thoughts, an intangible concept can be the function of the brain. Hence, the mind-body philosophical problem. My point is, we might be giving our physical body too much credit in the balance equation of yours rather than just allowing it to pass as the necessary tool to allow our perceptions to proceed with reason. A gray topic. The question is, can we perceive without the aid of our physical body.

Regarding the sun and Jesus. I say who cares? Really. I respect your connection with both however I believe that with or without those connections both the sun and Jesus still hold their true essence and purposes to them. It's almost like poetry. One can interpret a poem in various ways, however, I'm not completely keen on the stretched idea of this which leads to deconstructionalism which is to allow any interpretation to be correct, thus the truth of text is relative completely to what we think of it because we cannot grasp the full meaning of what the author had tried to explain. My point is, true you can make same seemingly true connections regarding the sun and Jesus, but these are both irrelevant to what both symbols stand for. However, could you be right and these anomalies be intertwined, yes. But who knows.

I can't argue you with your heaven or hell ideas simply because you just stated possibilities, one of infinite. You just said, what if it was like this. I can't argue you on this because there is no real fundamental principle that we can make a connection to it regarding to truth.

I disagree with you on what God is. Yes, God is the life but I don't agree with you that we are part of God, nor anything created. Reason being is this, that God is eternal and matter is not (which can be argued, but this is my belief.) In other words, assuming matter is not eternal and that God is, the two cannot be intertwined. Now, I believe that the essence of "perfection" and "good" that was implied in our creation is eternal. God holds all values at the highest point of perfection. In other words, if God is eternal and God is perfect in every way, then he holds the fundamentals of perfection in every level (love, justice, peace, goodness..etc.) and these hold eternal value with Him. I understand what you mean but what if God was life. However, all we know is what a physical life is which is just a function of arteries and brain waves. A more precise way of putting it is, God is truth.

I disagree with you on your existence speech. You confusing the willingness to allow ourselves into existence with our actual existence itself. We might be our will to live in the sense that, we can commit suicide, but that's the farthest you can push it.  You can't have something out of nothing and when I was once nothing I didn't think myself into something. I was born and now I have a choice. That is all.

Purpose is very simple. If there is no fundamental good or standard, I don't believe there is an eternal purpose for us. We all have our temporal purposes in life, like making money, drawing a picture, however, we die and what purpose does it hold after that? It's very simple. If there is no eternal purpose we can live for (which I believe God gives for us) then there is only a temporal purpose for us which would be to live our life and die. And that would be it.

This is like the federalists and the anti federalists.

The sony-ists and the anti sony-ists.

I'm wii-ist, though =]

I think the PS3 is worth it only when FF7 hopefully comes out for it remade to perfection and when FF XIII comes out, until then 360 is my interest and Wii with Twilight Princess and Super smash is all i need to be happy.
