Re: Religion and Philosophy

So, after a year or so long absence... Strictly speaking, any religion or ideology is itself a philosophical view. If your religion or ideology doesn't shape your philosophical view, then you're not what you claim to be. A person's philosophical view is the way they live. So if one's a christian, it...

Re: The Source of Evil

Desacralizing the life and sanctity of a human being. Stealing, lying, cheating, killing; they all qualify.

Re: Requiem for the Dawn

Here is a style of writing that I particularly like; something like a poetic narrative. It looks like this is a very definite description of something that is otherwise hard to explain: the spirit of Utopia, as you said, and how it actually looks around the earth. And there's so much to what you've ...

Re: Luke and the Grey Sky

My friend, that was a very interesting piece. I really like how it kind of switches from a stream-of-consciousness sort of feel to a narrative. The discourse at the end with the little girl was just a bit stiff, but it didn't do much to detract from the piece as a whole. For something written so qui...

Re: Comparing religions

You know Aniihya, that shows you're consistent. On that same note, here's an interesting comparison; pantheism and some monotheistic religion like Christianity. The first thing to note is this: if someone calls themselves a pantheist, but also acknowledges some monotheistic god like the Christian on...

Re: Lenyx's Poetry

This is very, very esoteric, and appropriately so. It starts out with a wistful sort of sorrow, but something good comes out in the end. It's well crafted

Re: Canibelle's Poetry

Canibelle, that was beautiful (if calling it that is appropriate). Is it right to say that this describes a girl crying in a mirror, pitying herself? Is it the right question to ask what she is crying about? What this "vacant land with frigid winds," is? Gosh. I'm unsure how to give any fe...

Re: Comparing religions

Let's compare religions, shall we? I might be wrong on some of these, so correct me if I am. Buddhism is a strange case, and I'm hesitant to discuss it because it's a bit difficult to grasp. There isn't any god or even a "you" according to it. But you suffer because that's life. Life invol...

An out of body experience has been imitated by sending weak electrical charges through the temporal lobe of the brain. Even though this could mean that an out of body experience might be an electrical impulse looping in said lobe, this is merely phenomenology; something that explains what happens wh...

Re: What makes you the most cross in RPs?

How about reading a short novella used as a post; one that isn't interesting? Gosh, I'll read it, but it's painful when it 'dryly' describes what's going on. Sure, it may have been written with superb grammar, but there are tools in the literary library that can be used. It doesn't matter to me if a...

Re: Religion vs Science: Clinging to Ideas and Beliefs

The main difference between science and religion is their definitions. Science is a discipline that is undertaken in every... every , facet of life. Religions, contrarily, are systems of belief. Believe it or not, they're understood scientifically. They're scrutinized for a multitude of things: hist...

Re: The Opposition's Side

Perhaps I should make myself more clear. Subtle speech might sound elegant, but if no one understands, it's pretty worthless, huh?

The Opposition's Side

I find this to be a wonderful exercise in argumentation, logic and, very frankly, honesty. There are reasons we disagree with folk on things, but a good test of weather or not we understand what we disagree with is actually presenting the opposition's view. Paraphrasing one college professor, statin...
