I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who donâ€™t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public
Philosophy is normally a subject of “study” restricted to the provided-for intellectual elites who will, sadly, never need to do anything useful to earn a living. But, in all truth, philosophy isn’t only for ivory towers. It’s also found in Walmart – especially existentialism and nihilism. 😆
Believing in God(s) is crazy! Just ask any Atheist; they’ll be happy to tell you that doing is contrary to all reason and logic. Their science has the universe explained and doesn’t rely on some “Magical Sky Daddy” for it’s creation.
Yeah…And Believing In God(s) Is Crazy?
Yep. The Godless are all about science, reason, and logic – except when they throw out every law of physics currently described by Man in order to explain the creation of the universe. Then they take the absence of God(s) on faith and brook no heresy.
And really? Multiple toroidal dimensions – I think the last count was 11 in order to make their math work – and intersections of dimensional membranes? Really? How is that more than pushing the question back another layer or two instead of answering it?
Reams and reams of paper filled with equations, all predicated upon a particle (graviton) that they can’t even find the other particle (Higgs-Boson) that they think might allow them to eventually figure out to find it, are supposed to be more reason-based and logical than, “So mote it be!”
And Theists are supposedly the crazy ones. 😉
Explaining Atheism is easy; it’s the absolute faith in Nothing. In the old days we simply described it as Nihilism and, if and when their anomie grew problematical, sent them to sanitariums where they could do no harm.
It is a long recurring theme, the call to have no regrets and/or to live one’s life without regret. Both the young and the middle-aged seeking to find their lost youth herald this idea as a measure of courage and personal growth.
It is one of the more laughable ideas that I’ve heard issue from the mouths of fools and people trying to sell me something. It also would be dangerous if generally achievable.
Let’s leave aside for the moment the fact that only the severely mentally deficient and/or damaged, the most shallow of narcissists, and total sociopaths could ever hope to achieve a life with no regrets. Let’s concentrate instead upon those deluded fools who might attempt this largely in vain.
