Keepin it Movin
Im glad to hear you are open to other points of view Harly........I dont agree with all of your counter points but at least you were open minded enough to hear mine and respond with fair and reasonable points.
I would suggest it has no potential whatsoever to discover the truth. I respect the reference we are provided with by Science. I fully believe the Earth is spherical, that blood carries oxygen around the body and that hydrogen dioxide is a compound, but I don't believe these are facts in the most literal sense.This is dont agree with blatantly, science doen not claim to have all the answers but it holds more potential to do so than a group who postulates there Deity is infinity itself?
Science is only a medium in which we measure the natural world around us, much like Philosophy is for the beyond. Both require faith because neither can provide infinite reference and crucially, both are mediums used by man - who is finite.
I can't say that for other people. I was speaking informally there. I could say that I believe we cannot discern truth and reality because we don't have infinite reference.How can you say that for other people?
I explained this before "TRUTH" is an individual concept and you just stated that nobodies self truth is discernible? Holding people to it or not you have just made a exhausting generalisation.
I meant no offense.Harmless as it may be from your POV, what you just said may be the most offensive thing I have heard in my life.
All I meant was that I believe that truth isn't subjective and that there is one ultimate and infinite truth, seeing as truth in itself can only exist as infinity.
I believe that to suggest truth is subjective is to call truth synonymous with faith.
But how can we discover truth in reference to ourselves without the scope infinity provides? Surely the only thing left for us is faith?What about self determination? self discovery? Is all for naught if your point is taken literally because those things go along way to making us the people we are.
Innocent statements, but damning in there execution.
