oh, well, yeah, sure, when you're choosing your body before you're born, that's different. I wasn't counting that. And of course, evidence gained in an NDE trumps all other forms of evidence, so sure, you're right.

who knows....
Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

There is no such thing as Enlightenment.

that is known as Enlightenment.

They will not get it placid, they are too dull, some more than others. Nothing of significance resonates with them unless of course it is socially accepted in some way or another. Then they can pull out their early learning books and have a debate about debating. These sock puppets are very easy to nail, even with their own language, they have about as much awareness as a dead gnat,

Dunno, Image. Someone left the outhouse light on?

(Almost every short post by Gord cracks me up now. :lol:)
It was gord, when he was wondering why the attraction. He wanted a closer look,. So he took his hand held mirror outside to the outhouse, (completely forgetting that there is a huge foo king big one on the wall of the outhouse) to see if there was any resemblance to himself. When he turned on the light he could see an infinite line of Nut jobs, he then realised that the Nut jobs that he saw was in fact his own reflection he got frightened ran off and forgot to turn the light off In his hast. Unfortunately he bumped his head and got himself a whacking great lump. Now every time he looks in the mirror he thinks he's seeing a
Nut Job. dam fool! He hasn't realised yet that every time he sees a Nut job he's actually looking in the mirror at himself. Bless his little cotton socks. Incidentally, if he got out of them occasionally perhaps it would help him to differentiate between what is Actually happening and what he Remembers happening then he wouldn't have this problem of recognition in the first place.

Placid resigned from the forum a month ago and will not respond.

Water does not know it is wet, so how can a person know it is wet?
Only that which is a subjective intangible feeling knows it is wet..... a feeling is not a person who thinks it knows, the person is also a feeling.
I don't agree with this one. Feelings change and are not constant, we who feel it are constant and we feel it, it passes, we still there. therefore a person has a feeling.
