Define Absolute

    Please add you definition of what "absolute" means.

    If there was 1 absolute definition, wouldn't it contradict absolutes?


    Maybe only the unproven can be considered absolute? If it is proven, does proven = absolute? What if it isn't absolutely proven, but partially proven?

    How can faith be absolute when it is only absolute that faith isn't absolute?

    ABSOLUTE is something that does not depends on anything else and is beyond human control. No mortal being can influence the absolute death.

      Was that an absolute definition?

      But mortals invent transfer of dna into cloning which contradicts death.


      Is death absolute when dying isn't absolute?

        Cloning doesn't contradict death ? It's only a transfer of cells.
        Eventually you die, even if you manage to live for 400 years. That's cifi ! lol

          How do we know the mind dies when it shuts down? If we are frozen, how do we ever die?

    @marine
    and what about dying in a bomb explosion? who,what, isgoing to bring you back to life ?
    and even you can clone a body, it's impossible to clone a mind.

      Is anything impossible when it's impossible to define a creator, even when we were created by our parents?

        lol Nature created you ! just as it createdyour parents. If your parents were capable of creating I'm sure they would have done a better marine ! take this as a joke, no offense intended lol

          What/who created nature, and what/who created what created that. It goes on and on. More proof of no absolutes! It may be absolute that we have no clue what the hell is going on!!! lol

          Thanks for starting this insane concept of absolutes. You have an absolutely individual mind to believe you are absolutely gorgeous! lol Back at you.

            What/Who created nature? Nature evolved on Earth into what it is known as today. Nothing and/or No one created it.

            You want an absolute- Cause and Effect is an absolute. There is always a cause to every effect.

    Could it be absolute that no one can define a creator when one hasn't been defined?

    Absolute can be defined. I kinda like like tantrums definition. However, if one looks at it's noun form, it's not a person, place, or think but an abstract idea. It's like believing in Santa Clause, sure it brings hope to children but to go out and find the Santa Clause. Not happening.

    an absolute is something that is complete within itself, or whole and perfect by itself no matter what the circumstances are. An example might be a court has absolute power to give a sentence allowed by law.

      Also it is scientific that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  This would seem to me to be an absolute law of nature or physics.

    absolute is experiential, meaning the  phenomenon, this is a ballpen, and you are holding a pen, you agreed that you call that thing a ballpen...
