  • The truth is the truth remains the truth no matter what we believe or do not believe the truth is the truth What then is the source of absolute truth?

Posted 27 August 2014 - 05:49 PM

Many people would say that death is the ultimate fear, but giving some thought about the matter leads me to think differently.

What do you think is your ultimate fear, the very worst thing that could happen to you, somewhere in the future?

I will bounce off the topic with that thought, because I do not want to direct the thread in any specific way and would like to leave the topic open ended because coming in with my thought.

My quote, "The truth is the truth remains the truth no matter what we believe or do not believe even in total ignorance the truth is the truth!  What is absolute Truth?  What is the source of absolute truth  What is the source of life

Being alone the rest of my life

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish... Soldiers don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think or what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder... Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts.  You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts.

Thinking about an ultimate fear is a negative way to use your brain. Most of what everyone fears never happens anyway.

But having said that, I'd feel absolutely terrified if I was swimming in the sea and saw a big fin rise up in front of me... ever since I saw JAWS Ive never been comfy in the sea...

That the world's strategic supply of delicious chihuahuas will dry up

or

That a ravenous swarm of Chihuahuas will consume me on my way to my car in a ink black parking lot

That could be one thing to fear, but it is highly unlikely to happen to you or anyone else for that matter.

No that is something you should never fear, I am old at 70+ but these are the best years of my life.

How can you fear something that will never happen to you?

I was listening to an old Phil Collins tune last night from the 80's about that very situation - "Home by the Sea"  sad...
My worst fear would be returning to a place I visited once - a place where I had absolutely no hope in life.  It's the most devastating thing a human can experience IMO.

Already happened to me, plus Ive been stabbed 3 times..once was in the neck.. and shot at with a flare gun! Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, Ive been around violence many times. Im also an ex boxer, not pro, so people dont really scare me so much.  I think if someone was gonna kill me a shot in the head would be the least painful option, and the quickest!

But thinking about it again, yeh, Id hate to be out to sea, alone, no land in sight, and seeing that fin. That would make me crap my pants, never knowing when it was coming to tear a leg off....blood....more sharks, a feeding frenzy with me being ripped to shreds...while alive.

Oh? I dont think its as unlikely as you think and quite honestly im living it now. Oh well though i hope it doesnt happen but id rather not dwell on it

One thing I fear is that after I die I find out hell is real and that I am stuck there forever, in cold dark desolation far from the great God of light and life.

I have been stabbed by a knife welding lunatic . I remember looking into his mad eyes and frothing mouth. The pain was indescribable, seemingly going on for hours just like liquid fire cutting through my body. Yet the whole thing happened in less than 20 second or so.


Yet this event was unexpected and not something I feared. There are other thing much worse that that to fear.
