RE: Atheism is religion by another name
I swear, every time Egor comes back to post some shit on the threads, he gets greeted with a big American Football tackle. If you look, and I mean really look, it's almost a hug.

He's earned it.

Plus, Ed is a good troll. You don't find many of them around, and I, for one, would like to keep him around as long as possible.

He's also a pretty good dude and dagum hilarious if I say so myself.

I don't know enough about his personality to draw any conclusions... But I have noticed the tackle-hug. Big Grin

We already have a name for the universe. It's called the universe.

no, he thinks the universe has a mind of its own, and our minds are just the same mind but compartmentalized in our brains so it's all the same. The logic is undeniable! we have minds therefore everything is a mind!! Hobo

Incorrect. He believes that the universe exists because life exists.

RE: Atheism is religion by another name
Hey Eegs,
Why name it "god" ? If "all that is", is god, sounds like you're saying
Reality = God.
Why not just say Reality = Reality, and leave it at that.
Or are you making a further distinction between existence and non-existence, which implies a few other things.

Yea. Egsy just currently isn't getting that our little corner of the universe might be the proverbial tree in the forest. But, at least he's not stagnating and he seems to be moving along fairly briskly in the development of his understanding.

He's just into tweaking his own shit 'til he gets it right - nothing wrong with that. What's he calling the current incarnation of his belief - monistic something...?

Morondog's book recommendation - GEB - is an oldie but a goodie - a hell of a mind exercise and a fun read. I'm pretty sure it won a Pulitzer. Shy

Yes, it did. Godel, Escher, Bach

Wait a sec. I read it when it came out. Does that mean ... ?
