Demonstrate this to be true. Don't simply assert it; show it. If what you claim is true, you would do well to show it to be so.

Re: neo-existentialism

Meta, great answer!! :D Thanks for doing that. U made it easy for me. Meta's answer, as much as I appreciate his response, didn't accomplish anything. At least, not as far as I can tell. I'm also not sure the 'offical pulpit' version of xianity should be blaniketly considered the 'official' one - a...

Re: neo-existentialism

we have talked about different aspects of theological method that allow us to discuss "the unknown." I wasn't part of those discussions, as you know. So I'm not going to assume anything for anyone here; I'm simply going to work from what I currently understand to be the case. The aspect of science ...

Re: neo-existentialism

Everyone forgets the orthodox church. From what I have read there is a somewhat universalist tendency in that church. http://www.orthodoxytoday.org/articles7/HilarionSalvation.php I didn't forget the Orthodox church. I purposefully included the dominant Western traditions because I'm not very famil...

Re: neo-existentialism

Hmmmm. But that 's not how knowledge works, not even knowledge of (relatively) simple, earthly topics, much less knowledge of the transcendent. What theory of knowledge are you using to manage your thoughts? What is your epistemology? Eg, in science does every theory have to be 100% correct and con...

Re: neo-existentialism

.... IOW, do those various religious traditions and subjective individual opinions you're bringing up all point - in any way at all - to the same thing? According to some of those traditions I've listed: yes. For example, Hinduism may see all other interpretations of God/gods as an augmentation of ...

Re: neo-existentialism

What exactly distinguishes those different envisionings of God, KA? How compatible/incompatible are they? (before u critique Meta for imposing HIS version of God, i think u have to demonstrate why it's incompatible, in its core essence, with those others...) No. Seeking clarification on whose God w...

Re: neo-existentialism

not exactly but they do fit together. Okay. since the real thing is beyond our understanding, metaphor is the best we can do for talking about it, what's the big deal? maybe we should get together on our metaphors, but talk to them about it. If the real thing is beyond our understanding, how do you...

Re: neo-existentialism

The question "which particular God" is really the question of traditions. Which participial Take on God , or which religious tradition ? they are relative. They are right and they are all wrong. There is one true reality behind them all that can only be experienced it can't be understood. All our u...
