The Mind of Goatskin
"Wisdom is like a goat
skin--everyone carries his own"
(African English Idiom)
What we are today comes
from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts
build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of
our mind.- Buddha
God is defined as
omnipotent, omniscient,omnipresent,eternal,the alpha and
the omega. What is the Cosmos? The Comos contains all
energy, includes all knowledge because it is everything,
it is everywhere because it is "the
everywhere", it has been shown by one mathematician
to be eternal and it appears we are on the verge of
proving it has no beginning nor any end because, like a möbius strip, the beginning and
the end are one and the same. I submit to you then, God =
The Cosmos; And I ask, why is there a need to personify
this "god" and create a being in our image to
account for what we don't understand and raise a false
hope of an afterlife?
is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd
have good people doing good things and evil people doing
bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it
takes religion." ---Steven Weinberg
I plan to be updating at least weekly, so if something interests you, please come back for more and do so often.
This is part of the Treasures and Trash-South project which will be featuring a guide to both special and not-so-special web sites, books, music, ideas and shopping.
Some thoughts from
"The World According to David Whitehouse"
Life is evolution from innate potential to the greatest degree of understanding and ability; the purpose of life is to survive, experience, learn...advance to the highest level of competency and understanding possible.
The greatest threat to "The American Dream" is altruism. Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for yourself. The key precept of American democracy is INDIVDUALISM.
The primary purpose of government is to protect individual rights and provide for the common defense.
UFOs, ghosts, ESP, etc. are natural phenomena and should not be given supernatural attributes.
Religion was the first philosophy; it is based on myths emerging out of ignorance--convenient explanations for things beyond comprehension.Man created gods in his own image.
If there is a god, and the god is a "being" with gender, then logically, based on our knowledge of evolution and biophysics, God is a woman (BUT WHY WOULD A SUPREME BEING NEED GENDER?).
Actually we have outgrown our need for a supernatural "father". All religions are a form of altruism (as is Communism, etc.) -- Man can not subordinate himself to a supernatural being or to a government or any other entity if he is to properly participate his "evolutionary" process--he must protect his ego to realize his full potential as a rational, creative human being and protect the right of all individuals to pursue happiness in their own way.
