27. Heaven's Gate was definately into mind control, but not in the way I think you

are using the term. The conformity had a purpose, similar to the conformity of Buddhist monks. The Heaven's Gate folks wanted to eschew their old human ways so that they could rise to the "next level."

They were trying to control their minds with the purpose of elevating themselves spiritually.

they laced up their new Nikes and drank the kool aid. Who is to say that the epiphany that led them to follow Appelwhite is any less valid than the epiphany that leads one to follow the God of the Bible? Both beliefs arise from an equal lack of real evidence.

Also, how exactly is this a strawman?

55. There is always some nut around to misuse an idea. Science calls it Pseudocscience

and science itself has what is called publication bias, ego and group mentality. There are inherent flaws in a system.

There are 1000's of years of anecdotal evidence of an experience beyond mind along with scientific evidence. It's more prevalent than God literally. It's also philosophic truth.

I still contend that the basis of belief of those cult members is no less valid that the basis of belief of any other religion, spaceship or no.

On edit: If all you have after "1000's of years" is anecdotal evidence rather than hard evidence, is that not suspect?

63. I addressed this earlier in your other thread.

In this post of your other thread, specifically,
...your jury example is moot. You can also find thousands of people to give anecdotal testimony of encounters with bigfoot, chupacabra, or the ghetto leprechaun, but whether the jury convicts or not says nothing about the existence of such an entity.


That is argumentum ad populum, which has nothing to due with reality and everything to do with popularly held belief. Now please, I've asked you several times to address the irrationality of religious belief and you ignore the request each time. Until you address my question, our discussion is going nowhere. If you would address my question I would be happy to continue our discussion. Failing that, I once again wish you a good weekend, sir, and I hope that you will either answer my question or respect my disengagement from this pointless discussion.

65. This IS actually the central debate. I understand and accept the "evidence" because it coincides

with my experience and my perspective on history. And you don't. Our experience and cognitive outlook provides a different perspective on the nature of existence. It doesn't even necessarily mean our truths are exclusive.

30. 1.8

 

is the fractal dimension of prime numbers:

Many upper-division science students are familiar with the particle in a box, or the particle in a ring. But there are also other types of potential wells. For instance, one may also consider the fractal potential wells. The solution of Schrödinger-like equations for potentials of this kind has been of interest for some time. Not only is it challenging to solve for puzzles like this, but it can be used for approximating complicated potentials as well, such as those that arise in the design of microchips. For example, one group of authors study the Schrödinger equation as it applies to a self-similar potential. Another group studied the potentials constructed from the Riemann zeros and prime number sequences. They estimate the fractal dimension to be D = 1.5 for the Riemann zeros, and D = 1.8 for the prime numbers.

28. I can definately see how you could come up with that interpreation.

However, religion means different things to different people, and I think all sincere interpretations are equally valid.

For example, a Christian may believe one can never become one with God. You may be in the Kingdom of Heaven if you live your life a certain way, but God will always be a superior other.

31. Hermeneutics and ethics of interpretation

 

In practical work of translators and interpreters all "sincere interpretations" are not equally valid, but there is preference and attempt towards benevolent interpretation. Translator tries to make the target text "better" than the source text. E.g. meaning of a garbled and incoherent source sentence that is hard or impossible to understand is deciphered from the whole of the source, and a coherent sentence is produced in the target text.

Likewise, relativistic philosophies are not ethically void, but based on ethical foundation of relativism as ethical approach and benevolent interpretation.

Buddhist etc. benevolent interpretation of the Christian salvation you describe is not to say it's wrong as such, but to compare it e.g. with the Pure Land path.

interpreting the translation.

Interpreting the "meaning" of a religious story is extremely subjective, and therefore, all interpretations are equal.

I submit that this "oneness" crap is unintelligible. The challenge is to make it more intelligible, not rattle on like Yoda (with or without the eccentric grammar) as if that increases intelligibility.

45. A lot of people within religion have a myopic worldview. They've never been

stimulated to look outside of their religion. This is a fundamental problem because, unless someone can take an objective view they cannot see the inherited problems and thereby cannot surpass them. Comparing religions shows more distinctly the function and path of religion.

Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: Intent is pretty clear.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Rude, but not worth hiding.

75. Thanks, apparently someone decided

to just alert on everything of mine they could find, hoping something would stick. The list of suspects isn't too long, given the tactics.

80. More info needed on how to "Be One".

Seriously, instead of dodging bullets, I want to learn how to not HAVE TO dodge bullets. And then how to explode Hugo Weaving, because fuck that guy.
