    What is wrong with the human heart (and not the physical organ) and does the religion of Atheism and other man-made solutions have the answers?

      I think, based on posts by atheists, right here in these hub pages, they would say there is nothing wrong with the human heart, so there's no need to "fix" it!

        Any Atheists who can pick up the newspaper or get the news on radio or tv and sees all teh violence that is not just committed by poor underprivileged people and says there's nothing wrong with the human heart needs to have their head examined. They are living in denial and denial doesn't address the issue, it just perpuates the problem.

          Just get to the point. what? What is wrong with the human heart?  Let me guess, not accepting Jesus...right?

          Oh wiat excuse me, I mean being a Christian acting in the proper Christain behavior, and only studying the Bible and spreading the good word until we all become robots.  The very same robots you say is the very reason we have free will.

        I am not Athiest I am Chrisitan however I am very open minded about all religions.smile
        God certainly would no want me to be judgemental and I have read the Qur'aan and have friends who are Muslim so with respect I am far from Athiest I certainly do believe in GOD:)

    Our hearts are an organ and they do not think, it is the mind process that can get us into trouble. Feelings and emotions come from the brain which stimulates everything else. I do not necessarily believe that Atheism and man-made solutions have all ofthe answers however we should all keep an open mind and learn from each other about this interesting process.

                  No, if it were, we wouldn't need both words. So, we have:

                  Atheism is Atheism
                  Science is Science
                  Religion is Religion

                  Now, that wasn't difficult, was it?

                    If you will permit me to say so, atheism is a conclusion ... reversible of course ... ego stands in the way of manipulating the reverse gear. With all due respects to all, this is just my opinion.

                    Well, you may ask, if this is a conclusion, how come it is reversible? It blasts the concept of conclusion into smithereens. Well in my opinion, that's the way atheism is designed to work. smilesmilesmile

        Lol! First of all your mischievous smile makes me totally nervous!!!smile

        Secondly, I would say that scientists have not found any evidence of the non-existence of GOD. Right throughout, scientists have been able to prove every theory that they have put forward, using mathematics and logical inference.

        The track record of scientists itself is sufficient to establish their credibly and accept what they say as true. By the same token to accept what they don't say as untrue.

        Quite apart from that, you believe in a GOD that you believe does not exist.

        I believe in a GOD since I cannot find evidence of his non-existence! smile

          I see the science track record quite differently - science keeps disproving itself all the time. smile

          In fact, it is designed this way. Try to dig for Paraglider's posts on that matter, he explained it several times much better than I possibly can smile

            quicksandposted 8 years ago in reply to this

            Well, the various fields in science would stand on separate feet. I see what you mean. The fact remains that thanks to science and technology we are living a far more comfortable life than our predecessors did. How's that for credibility?

            There may be instances in medical science where definite mathematical proof of any discovery cannot be established. This fact alone will create a requirement for continuous investigation.

            Well ... I am deviating from the topic, am I not? smile

          I believe in no such god.

          The track record of scientists? What you mean the scientist who's work is allowing you to communicate with me over the internet?

          I believe in no such god.

          Why can you not grasp the simple principal that not believing in something you find laughable - is not a belief?

          I am quite prepared to accept the complete lack of evidence or proof of god as good enough for me.

          Any time you are ready to prove or dis-prove god I will be waiting.

          Any time you are prepared to back up your original statement in some way, I am all ears. smile

            He believes in his "God" because he hasn't found any evidence not to yet there is evidence all around him.  The trick I have learned to dealing with such people is to realize that no proof will suffice to turn them away from "God", which ironically is the same accusation they make towards atheists when they bust out historical arguments or try to show believers the patterns of deception present in organized religion.

            If I literally believed in Santa Claus and turned it into a Multiple Out they couldn't disprove me either.  Matter of fact I might just construct such an argument so that I can pull it out and humiliate these kinds of people when they start talking.

            Well, Mark, the only statement I made was that language is versatile, I believe I can sort of prove that.

            As for proving the existence of GOD, if I succeed in doing what millions have tried hard to, and failed, I would be star of the century! I cannot. No one can. That does not mean he does not exist either.

            Likewise, if you can prove that he does not exist, you too will rise to fame. You cannot. No one can! That does not mean he does exists either. smile

              Mark Knowlesposted 8 years ago in reply to this

              No, you made several statements:



              This makes no sense other than to show that you believe atheism is wrong. You then went on and said:


              Which also makes no sense, unless you substitute the word "logic," for "belief." But you did state this and have not attempted to prove anything. You then stated:



              Which I assume to mean you believe in everything that has not been dis-proven. Since it is a logical impossibility to prove the non-existence of something that does not exist?

              So it seems to me, the only thing that supports your belief is the versatility of language........

        GOD


        Who is god?
        He, she and it is god. God is, has, was, will.

        Where is god?
        Everywhere is god, nowhere is god.

        What sort of a thing is god?
        Everything is god.
        God is love, god is the light.

        When does god come?
        When the madness stops, when death becomes.

        How do I see god?
        With your eyes closed and with your eyes open.

        What have I to do with god?
        You are his creation, you are a part of him.

        When do I see, meet god?
        Whenever you really decide to,
        When you want nothing.

    Yet you ask this question in your poem:



    And I was just trying to help, by explaining that it is your autonomic nervous system smile

    The first step in Yoga is learning mastery of your body. Until you can do this, you are at the whim of your body and subsequently ego. It is the first step in controlling the rest and allowing the internal dialog to be quieted.

      autonomic nervous system--note the word autonomic-.happens by itself.
      Yes I agree with you yoga does require control of the body and mind for allowing the internal dialogue.But more than controlling any part of your body it requires one pointed concentration.Absolute or perfect concentration smile

      Am I really in control? I say NO.

      So what is controlĀ­ling everything besides me?


      The same force or entity or power controls.

      I have never been in control.

      At the same time I must have been in control. wink

        Cryptic, yet at the same time meaningless and lacking in inner significance wink

        Autonomic means "Involuntarily," or "spontaneously." Not "happens by itself."

        And it is possible to override this. Which means you have power over this "force or entity." wink
