  1. do we?
    when did we all do that?
    i know i never did
    being a pagan atheist who beleive nature is a conscious being
    its conscious would evolve the same way the rest of ours did

  2. Well, prepare yourselves to receive a barrage of real truth. I’m going to provide a list of contradictory scripture and quotes for you, to prove Christianity’s lack of credibility. Enjoy.
    Like I said, only one error is needed, but here’s several pages-worth of them:
    The failure of the Bible’s predictions about the end of the world
    (All the following were written nearly 2000 years ago…)
    Matt 10:23: [Jesus said to his disciples] ‘When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes’.
    Matt 16:28: [Jesus said to the disciples], ‘Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom’.
    Mark 9:1: And he [Jesus] said to them [the disciples], ‘Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power’.
    Mark 13:30: [After detailing events up to end of world, Jesus says] ‘Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away before all these things take place’.
    Mark 14:62: And Jesus said [to the high priest – died 1st cent. AD] ‘You will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven’.
    Rom 13:12: The day is at hand.
    1 Cor 7:29: The appointed time has grown very short; from now on, let those who have wives live as though they had none.
    1 Cor 7:31: For the form of this world is passing away.
    Phil 4:5: The Lord is coming soon.
    1 Thess 4:15: We who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord.
    Hebrews 1:2: In these last days he has spoken to us by a Son.
    Hebews 10:37: For yet a little while, and the coming one shall come and shall not tarry.
    James 5:8: The coming of the Lord is at hand.
    1 Peter 1:20: He [Christ] was destined before the foundation of the world but was made manifest at the end of the times.
    1 Peter 4:7: The end of all things is at hand.
    1 John 2:18: It is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming.
    Rev 1:1: The revelation of Jesus Christ (i.e., the end of the world)…to show to his servants what must soon take place.
    Rev 3:11: [Jesus said] ‘I am coming soon’.
    Rev 22:6: And the Lord…has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.
    Rev 22:20: [Jesus said] ‘Surely I am coming soon’.
    Contradictory Scripture
    God good to all, or just a few?
    PSA 145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
    JER 13:14 And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.
    War or Peace?
    EXO 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
    ROM 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
    Who is the father of Joseph?
    MAT 1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
    LUK 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.
    Who was at the Empty Tomb? Is it :
    MAT 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
    MAR 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
    JOH 20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
    Is Jesus equal to or lesser than?
    JOH 10:30 I and my Father are one.
    JOH 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
    Which first–beasts or man?
    GEN 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
    GEN 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
    GEN 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
    GEN 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
    The number of beasts in the ark
    GEN 7:2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
    GEN 7:8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing

  3. When did this “statement” happen? Since when are all atheists one entity that makes blanket statements like that?
    Atheism is not a religion. We don’t all ascribe to some belief system that dictates our thoughts. The only thing we have in common by definition is that we don’t believe there is a God. Period.
    So , your premise is flawed.
    But you knew that already and are just trolling.

  4. Nature is conscious. However, it is conscious in the same way that individual subatomic particles are magnetic, but in everyday experience, only a magnet is magnetic. Similarly, matter and possibly also space are conscious but only particular arrangements of matter are conscious in a way which can express itself.
    Magnets can evolve from natural processes. For instance, Earth has a magnetic field due to the gravity of the Moon raising tides in the iron-rich core of the planet, which cause magnetic domains to line up and generate one. Consciousness in the sense of a being which exhibits evidence of it can also evolve without divine intervention.
    I think you’re confusing atheism with physicalism.

  5. There is no evidence that nature is conscious. This again, has to do with burden of proof and proving a negative. Look both those up. Consciousness didn’t evolve from nature, it evolved in nature.

  6. Consciousness is the product of the incredibly complex electronic feedback device known as the human brain and nervous system. Nature does not have any kind of electronic feedback system of this type in a grand sense. Therefore your claim has not a shred of evidence and no reason whatsoever to believe it.

  7. I don’t know what atheists you have been talking to, but I am conscious and I am part of nature. Now, if you want to make the claim that all of nature combined has one united consciousness – you’ll have to be the one to show me some evidence of that. You can argue that we are connected physically on a quantum level, but adding consciousness to that is tricky.

  8. The universe is conscious, because I am conscious and I’m a part of the universe. If you can say YOU are conscious when it’s really just your brain that’s conscious, then why can’t you just extend it to say the universe is conscious? Your brain is a part of you. Your brain is also a part of the universe. The universe may have many consciousnesses, but it’s conscious.

Grounding energies and healing with barefoot walking

If you are walking on soft earth, the best way is to walk barefoot, no shoes. You have a tremendous contact with the earth. We belong to the earth! Half of us is part of the earth and half is part of the sky. And when you are walking in the early morning sun on the wet earth, you are enjoying both the sky and the earth. It was perfectly right!
