A vast majority of scientist don't give dualism credibility, sure, but it's also accepted that their theories only last until there're disproven. So, do your beliefs henge so much on fallible human logic, that you have to absolutely disagree with everything that contradicts it? Rather than accepting, that you might be wrong, everyone might be wrong? Instead of just being agnostic... and please, I see the worth in putting useful knowledge to work and un-encouraging harmful beliefs, but why the unquestionable certainty? why aren't you agnostic?

You should reposts this here, I was waiting for one other hubber here, but im just going to delete it after you move to this now: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/102143
This is all true, but i'm not asking why you aren't theist.
In this case, you rounding up that .0001% is unnecessary ignorance to said .0001%, and I don't see the big deal in not ignoring it.
No one but robots will ever talk in the pure logic you like.
ignorance is blissful, but its casualties are real.
You are ignorant for saying ignorance is blissful.
Now that just doesn't make sense. You admitted to being ignorant, I merely reinserted that in light of a mindful saying. If you would like to understand the casualties I mentioned you should read the convo between Paul and I at the bottom: http://hub
Everyone may or may not be ignorant for everything they do or say, while I am technically an agnostic I prefer to be called atheist as it makes a stronger statement and makes a limit of not having to deal with any outlandish thing in peoples minds.
Exactly, but if you cut yourself off from the outlandish in such a way, it's counterproductive to a stance of spreading rational. This is assuming you would like to see more people think rationally, through your own actions.
It's only counter productive if I was trying to teach a philosophy, I doubt I could rationalise everyone or even want to. I feel religion doesn't deserve my thought as it is and it's better used trying to help. This question is very interesting.
Here is the forum i'm moving this too: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/102143
sorry, my bad .
Such a shame....
Tens of thousands of dead and forgotten gods and the followers of all of them were just as sure that theirs was the real one as our current religious people.
The shame is you cant think logically my dear. Your invisible sky friend is the real one?
Of course he is.
Yes but why no room for considerations? I meant to post this as a forum, so please repost this comment there, you and Josak are the only people who have actually commented so far, so im just going to delete this one.
Now feeling the HOLY SPIRIT come into you is another sometimes physical thing. Once you understand what you are feeling being touched by the HOLY SPIRIT you will most likely want to feel that affirmation all the time! But alas for me anyway it does
That wasn't any sort of argument, or point being made. That was just one giant self-affirming pat on the back which isn't applicable to the perspectives of others.
Actually the site would not allow me to put my whole writing in..I will see if I can sneak a continuance of the writing in. And its not a pat on the back, it is actual.
Once you understand what you are feeling being touched by the HOLY SPIRIT you wil
The point remains though, talking about your individual experiences can't work in the context of fact because I can never step inside your mind. I think the world would be a better place if we could though.
