Re: How can you not let disrespectful people affect you?

Ever since I have stopped taking my daily medication, I experience out of proportion anger at whoever I perceive as disrespectful towards me. I shout at people and restrain myself from shouting profanities and have vivid thoughts of hurting people and getting my revenge (but I end up hurting myself...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

Jason, I'll do my best to explain this from my own limited perspective. :D It's a good question you ask. A very good question and one that I've considered myself. My answer is Yes......you know everything in spirit, everything because spirit is all there is, all knowing, and your nature IS spirit, ...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

You don't, however, create logic to fit your beliefs, but you can use faulty logic to keep beliefs safe from scrutiny. Meaning, beliefs are formed logically, but the beliefs themselves are not implicitly logical, and are in fact implicitly grounded in faulty logic from the mind identified state. If...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

How is free will most apparent in the incarnation process? Because there is no "conditioning" in spirit that keeps us imprisoned. So there is a spirit world, but you can't think in the spirit world? Sounds like an experienceless experience prior to experience that doesn't have anything to do with f...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

Same with the separate self concept. So I'm not really sure why believing in either would be a logical choice, because it isn't logical, and the defense of the beliefs always come across irrationally because they are influenced by the unconscious to an extent. Same with all concepts. And we all liv...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

WW said Actually much of science is run by cliques. Step outside the establishment view and a scientist may lose his job and/or can't get funding. It can and has been career ending for many who tried to explore beyond the religious tenets of the established hierarchy. That said many scientists do sp...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

Actually, you alone do determine what's valid and not valid. Of course considering the thought of others might be a part of that determination . But yes to all that. Which is surely not unimportant considering I am just one man with one perspective... Up with hope, down with the dope! :mrgreen:

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

The belief in no free will can also equate to man is god, which is one of the reasons some so called spirichul peeps can get very touchy about the subject. Free will was originally a religious concept. It was supposed to be a gift from god that conveniently allowed us to choose to accept that parti...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

Because people believing things contrary to the evidence, such as free will (man as god), is one of the reasons why this world is so fucked up. That's a good enough reason to keep hitting it home. What evidence do you speak of epiphany? Just because you can't find a Self in the brain? To me, that's...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

There is plenty of evidence to support any position you choose. The reality is you choose the evidence selectively. I alone don't determine what constitutes valid evidence - there are effective systems of logic, reason and empirical analysis outside of raw subjective experience to validate whether ...

There is no singular locus of self that can be identified in the brain.
The brain is already a fragment of self. Why start with the fragment?

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

Logically there seem to be limited options. We have free will. We don't have free will. We have partial free will, at limited, cuspy times. We have no free will and think we do. We have free will and we think we don't. We have free will, think we do and don't have free will and think we don't. I pe...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

I haven't just appealed to my mind for the answers if that's what you mean. In fact I've been aware of the mind fighting against such notions. The mind wants to believe in free will. It doesn't care about evidence. It cares about self preservation. Right, and in this context, you are that mind. To ...
