Nothing against Sky Daddy... but sometimes his fan club gets outa hand.

Thanks for joining me for discussion of the previous video wherein we extol the virtues of ambiguity that is science versus religiosity in that the two were not mutually exclusive. At least that's what I got from your comments. Even you don't read the comments, they're the best part about these videos. Case in point, the Devil in the Circuit writes: I'm an agnostic dyslexic Insomniac Most nights I lay awake wondering if there really is a dog.

and it's my concern that neither science nor religion shows the whole picture. And I'm not talking about the science trademark as an institution, but science as a method of understanding Consciousness is not in your mind. Your mind is a tool to be set aside when it's not useful. You do this every night when you clean the guck out of your brain.

when you can't turn off your mind, it's anxiety-ridden torture. Eventually, maybe you'll lose Consciousness but well lower your Consciousness who amongst us has not been jolt from a blissful nap aside the wood stove by a silent Sprite suserating sleep. A said in Luke 17 21. The kingdom of God is within you and in the Sikh tradition, Heaven is where the Nam is chanted now.

Nam is the union of Mind and Spirit brought about by chanting the name of God People of the book Orthodox Jews shuckling by The Wailing Wall and students in the Madras reciting the Quran as a calorie I invite you now to delve in with me to science as the exception. What proves the rule? Godell, of course, a famous mathematician laid the groundwork for a lot of our modern day computers mathematically. Anyway, studying the syllogisms of Aristotle found that even in school children's arithmetic liverities, what can't be substantiated. That is, even in kids stuff, there's things that Brainiac mathematicians cannot prove.

They are unknowable now. Von Newman Of course came after the fact brilliant young follow from Hungary a man from the future I Just finished reading that book. that's why I know this went on to prove math is unprovable and because it is unprovable now I ask you do we throw it away? Do we throw math away because it's unprovable? Hey partner, last I checked believing A squared plus B squared equals C squared comes in mighty handy I'm a bit of a cynic myself, so how then does faith come in handy? I Assert that if in prayer or meditation or just sitting as the Shinto Buddhists teach, just sit Because if you meditate, you're meditating with a purpose of some sort, just sit. You can set aside your mind and feel your conscious existence essentially the face of God and the idea that you can never be lost because you hold all of existence within you.

That's a I mean as a Muslims say I am closer to you than your jugular. Now that is a powerful idea. Very pointedly, a stunningly brilliant mathematician in Goodell drove himself mad because he couldn't set his mind aside. He drove himself mad with the idea that someone was trying to poison him.

and he starved himself to death, checked himself into a hospital, he weighed 66 pounds and died. Now that and this guy was a genius that perfectly illustrates the danger of not being able to set your mind aside. And that is where religion comes in. Knowing that your mind is not your being and that you can set your mind aside using the tools provided by ancient religions the world over.

    The problem with religion is it monopolizes spirituality.
    Spirituality is inside you already. It's baked in, you can't unscramble an egg; the laws of thermodynamics don't allow it. It is hypothesized thermodynamics causes the forward motion of time so getting your own spirituality out of you is impossible as unscrambling an egg, that's how baked in it is.
    Some choose to ignore their spirituality but you don't need to know how a car works in order to drive it. You can still drive through life well enough without learning how it works can't you? We are the universe trying to experience itself, but you're no lesser of a person if you don't know that, haven't thought about it or don't care for the concept. Scratching the curious itch of the nature of consciousness is what drives some people to want to understand more.
    Meditation isn't necessarily contemplation, though it can be.
    You don't need a religion to experience your own damn consciousness. To argue to the contrary is dogma – ruff ruff!

    Lately I just like to watch the balloons fly by and let my mind go.

    For a good read on the logical breakdown of the interface between science and religion check out "I don't have enough faith to be an atheist"
    "Atheism turns out to be too simple, if the whole universe has no meaning we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never have known it was dark. Dark would be a word without meaning.". -C.S. Lewis

    Totally appreciate you AvE.
    We are all god, if you don't get that, you think too much of yourself. That's very child human. Try to grow, you are so much more. Or you can waste it and play video games as your main go.

    From Juicers to Jesus. Nice soliloquy. When do you think they'll start printing truckers on the bills?

    Only in my later years did i fathom that math is art, language, building material, a storyteller and approachable. Wonderful vidj

    I've been raised catholic, got all my sacraments so far, but my family was never much into going to church so maybe that had something to do with the fact that it felt to me like God was portrayed as a parental figure to adults, someone to punish them when naughty. The things I was taught I always considered common sense and didn't really believe the stories from the bible to be true so I ended up an atheist, someone who thinks people should be good for the sake of being good people not to avoid punishment.

    The first three commandments never sat right with me, one should be allowed to experiment with their belief system, find one that suits them, that they gel with.
    I will never knock someone down for having faith, be it catholic, muslim, hindi whatever, if it brings you joy or comfort more power to you. I found my comfort in assuming that this is all I've got and I should make the most of it, I should enjoy life and nature while I have the time and should strive towards making the lives of the people around me better.

    Always seek improvement, stagnating leads to disintegration of the body and mind

    It's the moral principles that religion installs.. not all of course, but the basics that seem to be a road map to being a good human. They all have their crazy points too, but distilled down beyond the weird they are a guide. Not a religious person, but that's what I've seen in my 45 years

    As a kid I was so fiercely logical and thus athiest that I pretty much convinced my parents there wasn't a god. Neither of em been to church more than a dozen times since I was a teenager.
    Now, turning 32 next month, my brain still works the same, and I'm not scared of nothingness after death, but all the same I'm starting to catch religion. It all still sounds like bullshit to me, but I'm coming to the conclusion slowly that my brain might need the bullshit. I'm not quite there yet, but it's an interesting internal debate.
