Jimmy replied to Unseen's discussion 'SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT'
"I saw that, too, Belle. Reg, you're separating yourself from "the universe." As Carl Sagan once said, "The cosmos is also within us. We're made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.""

Jimmy replied to Unseen's discussion 'SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT'
"The truth is not even cosmologists know how the universe will end or if it will end. The cyclic model one of many end-scenarios for the fate of the universe. I'm not sure if it's commonly accepted among cosmologists, but a common one…"

God's Plan Isn't It ?

"@ɐuɐz ǝllǝıuɐp  Well, this is only if you assume that there is no such thing as the "supernatural." There is a perspective in which the supernatural can be described in terms of these higher dimensions as espoused by M-theorists. For…"

Jimmy replied to John Burrows's discussion 'The entheogen theory of religion'
"While Huxley doesn't speak about psychedelics in "Perennial Philosophy," he does speak of these kind of experiences in terms of mystical experiences and mysticism. Alan Watts borrowed the term "cosmic consciousness" from…"

Jimmy replied to John Burrows's discussion 'The entheogen theory of religion'
"I have a sort of different perspective on this. Since you've mentioned Gautama, I suppose I will start with Buddhism. If you look into Buddhism, Gautama isn't necessarily emphasized as the one appointed individual who is a "special…"

Jimmy commented on Steve Armitstead's blog post 'Do atheists believe in spirituality?'
"@Steve Armitstead I'd be interested to see how a blog like that unfolds. That thing I mentioned about Tracie, I actually found the clip in where she mentions this point-of-view of retaining the belief in God, but dropping the religion. Tracie…"

Jimmy commented on Steve Armitstead's blog post 'Do atheists believe in spirituality?'
"I've had a conversation like this before with a cousin of mine. It ended up over me wanting to research the etymological roots for the word "spiritual." Does it pre-date religion? Did arise mutually with religion? It's really…"

Jimmy commented on Atheist Exile's blog post 'Free Will Without Dualism'
"@Unseen, I'd like to hear why you disagree among "varieties of determinism." Perhaps you have your own opinions about it. I mean, causality, as I see it, taken to its logical extreme does imply the hard determinist view. I mentioned…"

Jimmy replied to Giddian Beer's discussion 'Where Is God?'
"Haha! I liked that. I sort of got a hint of where it was going once the pastor asked the question. I want to share a story that's a bit similar, but I think this story illustrates Zen Buddhism fantastically, even though it's a story about…"

Jimmy commented on Atheist Exile's blog post 'Free Will Without Dualism'
"Okay, I see now you've rephrased what you'd said here that now it's not that the determinist is 'making the mistake of treating animate beings and inanimate objects,' but now is just 'wrong-headed to ignore the…"

Jimmy commented on Atheist Exile's blog post 'Free Will Without Dualism'
"You see, the way you've phrased this here makes me wonder if you really understand the determinist's point-of-view. It's not that the determinist is making the mistake of "treating" animate beings…"

Jimmy replied to Dalton Jones's discussion 'Origin'
"Oh, cool! I can't wait. Did I prompt you to write that blog by any chance? I don't think you could write that blog without including yours truly."

Jimmy replied to Dalton Jones's discussion 'Origin'
"When most people think of the "Big Bang" theory, it seems a massive explosion comes to mind. But when you ask an astrophysicist, he/she will say that it was a bang that occurred in "10 dimensional hyperspace," so when that's…"

Jimmy replied to Giddian Beer's discussion 'Where Is God?'
"Well, I was only using Dawkins analogy of evolution (which I linked) to make a distinction of the how it's seen in Maslow's interpretation in comparison to how evolution is normally understood. I'm completely aware of the concept of…"

Jimmy replied to Giddian Beer's discussion 'Where Is God?'
"Okay, the chapter obviously revealed common details, overlapping characteristics, it didn't claim that this experience does not possess universal themes. To the contrary! Besides, that's just one paragraph! The entire book is fraught with…"

Jimmy replied to Giddian Beer's discussion 'Where Is God?'
"You see, if you scroll up, I clearly stated that there's no scientific study of what I was saying about the parallels between "Brahman" and "M-Theory," at least none that I'm aware of. However, you twisted what…"

Jimmy, before you go too far with Brian, do recheck the bannable offences in the TA Guidelines.  I don't want you to trip over number 4 by mistake.

Thanks

Strega
