TRUTH: Evolution, Science and The Dharma/Dhamma.
FICTION: Creationism, Fairy Tales, God and Jesus.
Jesus was probably a real person, no matter what Paul and his followers tried to make him into. Other than that, Right on!
Agree. The closest thing to a god is nature.
I’m an atheist who believes in true science. Have you read darwins origins of life? I find evolution to have a lot of the qualities of the fairy tale of creationism. I have some discrepancies with the dharma from what I can remember, but maybe I’m wrong–i’ll look it up and let you know.
I believe in mathematic logic, the subjectivity of truth, the seach for greater and greater truth within oneself (truth is progressive with new knowledge). I believe in compassion for the innocent and helpless, that children have a right to not be beaten or “spanked” and that people are responsible for their choices in life as well as the outcome of those choices.
I agree that I should probably go back and get another bowl of soup. This is some damned fine meat and potatoes!
Evolution is a partly understood theory of development. Not really a proven truth yet.
Science seeks truth but does not always find it. at least it tries.
Dharma I am not sure about but if it means you get back what you put in, then it is true.
( the rewards of effort)
YES the Fiction is fiction.But entertaining at least.
Neither Evolution nor Creationism have been finally and definitively proved to be true. Therefore, neither can be classified as either fact or fiction.
does it matter either way?
Disagree , not correct….!!
Once again, like an evangelical zealot, you present a simplistic “no brainer” black and white view of the world, and once again, what might be true for you is just that; only your truth.
What you speak is not an Untruth. RAmen.
TRUTH: Paris Hilton really isn’t all that attractive.
FICTION: Frank Spencer
I love how you slip in ‘The Dharma’ in the end. No I think that whatever the dharma is, it probably belongs to the bottom section.
Yes, I agree.
