Doing God's will, to me, is finding Plato's true Atlantis. 

 

 

:lol: It's in here.

@Pettytalk So your future machines will call us "God".   Maybe your "God" is not as simple as you describe.  Maybe we were created by a group of beings wanting to do something they did not have the ability to do, maybe there isn't just one god, maybe all the myths about many gods is correct.  We don't know, we each have to choose what we believe and fit it into our picture of reality.  I also consider the possibility of gods that are not really gods enslaving people as described in the Star Gate movie and television show.  We are very immature as a species and our perceptions keep us from understanding much.  Any leap of faith is really about accepting someone else's story as true and acting as if it is true.  There is no proof for or against there being one ultimate supreme being that created humans on planet earth.

To put it very briefly, we are an expression of our genes interacting with our environment. Every thought or action is synonymous with changes in the nervous system and or neurochemistry. Without this there ain't no learning. It underlies the lot of it.

I apologize, but this doesn't seem to make sense to me. Unless you are confusing neural system with nervous system?

Even though in our past it seems like we only had one choice,

WRONG-O!

Unless you are mis-speaking by using the word 'choice'.

The very word itself conveys the idea of 'more than one option'. As in a person could choose to: go into the military, go to college, enter the priesthood/sisterhood of their religion, go to work in the private sector, get married, or a combination of those choices, upon leaving high school (not sure what the Brits & Aussies call it).

But, once a choice is made, it is done. We have no way of knowing, or seeing, how the other choices would have worked out.  We can imagine, and daydream, about what life would have been like for us, "if only I...", but it is a futile exercise.

And, if we could travel back in time, and if we could alter events, what does that prove? Suppose (and this is real sci-fi/fantasy here) Walker could travel back in his own timeline (I really wouldn't be surprised if he said he could... :unsure: ), and convinced himself NOT to marry Mrs. Walker.  His ( and her) life would be different, and how would Walker react to these changes, upon returning to the present?  Would he even still exist in this new reality?

@Will Due

A thought just occurred to me, and I wonder what would be your response to it. Will, if no one responded, not even viewed it, what would you have done? If not one poster bothered to go into this thread, and not even know what's it's about, because there were no views. Would you be fine with that, Will?

Of course. 

Because it would've been God's will. :lol:

That it's God's will, that no one responded to your thread, or that it's God's will to be fine with it? 

And either way it your answer turns out, how would you know? (And by answering that, by giving actual reasons and circumstances that would tell you.)

:huh:

Know what? Everything?  No one knows everything.  What makes you say you know that I know everything? 

OK, I miss read that. You said anything. But, what do you mean you know that I know anything? Because, that sounds confusing

You’re right. I reedited my original post. But it still leaves me confused. You said you don’t know anything, but you know I do. Of course I wouldn’t know anything, whatever that would be.

Clarify what you mean.

 Well, I don’t think we can respect anything you say. How do we know you’re lying?

More importantly, how do we know when he is telling the truth?

Doing God's will can be done unconsciously.

For those of you who need proof, become the proof. If you're not already.

Doing God's will isn't something you'll find in another person. But you can find it, in yourself.

But you all, already know this. :rolleyes:

God's will can be done superconsciously too.

I don't think anyone would argue that consciousness exists. Neither with subconsciousness.

But if subconsciousness exists, why wouldn't you also think that superconsciousness exists too?
