PS: I have one more similar topic too and I am also going to list down these very same points there too, I presume and hope that if the topic is different then the line of discussion will take different turns in both topics.
I can surely say now that I am naive.
Edit: Now I think that I wouldn't. I think that the other topic won't benefit with these points, It's a different ballgame. Would quote someone of you guys again perhaps on that one too .
Meh...these types of conversations have a way of merging anyway...it is a fundamental question..."is there a God and why does he let the world turn to shiz?"
I don't have an answer for that. I don't know if there is a superior being out there...though...I am kind of inclined to think there is a master set of eyes watching over the experiment. Is it good or evil?...Methinks it is neither...don't get me wrong....I am not saying the "scientist" is god...consider these ideas...
After reading some of the mightiest philosophers of all time...and some of the razors edge scientist...I don't have a problem accepting that our perception is flawed...each of our senses has a limited bandwidth in which it operates...could there be something above and below our ability to notice?...in my opinion...absolutely! Is it alien...no...not technically...is it alien to us...yes definitely!
I think...when technology advances more...we will find that there are "states of being" that are above and below our limited senses capacity to acknowledge and comprehend...just like we discovered there is sound above and below our capacity...and we discovered there is light above and below our thresholds of comprehension. Thus...it is not out of the question to think there are simply states of being...states of matter...that we have not learned to comprehend just yet.
I am not trying to embrace a higher power or kill it...I am simply saying...we still have a lot to learn that is completely within our capacity and technology...if we spend the time...and "THE MONEY" to do so....oh but I said a dirty thing...spend money...and we know the conservatives hate that...especially if it might change their caveman opinion of what a superior being might be...
