Philosophy (of which religion is a part)

    We can go philosophy. We can go religion. Frankly, I'd prefer philosophy.

    Main forum is dead, so who wishes to tangle up here?

      Try this "Do You Know Basic Logic?"
      http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/arti … asic-logic

      Most students fail it.

        '
        The bottom line. All my thoughts as to this subject I consider to be theories, not beliefs or absolutes.

    Here is a question I have been pondering, lately: Which brings us to Reality? Religion or Philosophy? Either? Neither? Both?

    If neither, what does bring us to Reality? Science? In that case, is it all three?

    If none of the above, we are really sunk.

    And If you say we are lab rats for an alien race, you are merely surmising, paradigmsearch.

    Recently, it has been mentioned in the news that an alien race probably looks a lot like us. So, thats great, because if they are amongst us, we'll never know …

    or will we????

        I think you're right...with the caveat that without science (testing, observation, etc.) we cannot know if the reality from philosophy OR religion actually IS reality.

          At the very least, IMO, reality has to agree with science. That doesn't mean that science can and will figure out everything about reality.

            Oh, no argument there!  We will be extinct, dead and gone, long before our science can figure out all of reality.  And some questions may not even be answerable by testing, observation, experimentation, etc.  Is there another universe?  Is there a god in one that created this one?  Are there "higher" dimensions?  What is the meaning or purpose of life?

    Lab rats. Lab rats. Intentional or not? Who knows? But here we are.

    Does anyone here wish to claim they are not a lab rat?

    I would really like to know.
