ANALYSIS OF MOSES MAIMONIDES' TEACHINGS

*Maimonides identified minut with atheism, with the denial of God's unity and incorporeality, with the denial of creation ex nihilo, and with the belief in a power intermediary between God and man.

-(Yad, Teshuvah 3:7).

JOEL: Atheism has its plus and minus points.

Religion, too, is a mixture of good and bad.

Reality is beyond the twain of atheism and religion.

God's unity, or echad, is mumbo jumbo if by unity of G-d is meant a singular object of worship (with its attributes intact) chosen from a multitude of competing Gods as it is the case with Judaism.

This chosen deity of the Hebrews, the singular or the one chosen from a multitude of Babylonian deities, becomes the object of worship in whom all the divine attributes are unified - an echad.

The idea of Echad, despite its unification of the attributes of the chosen G-d into an indivisible oneness, is still dualistic and refers to the extra-cosmic deity who does not have a causal link with the cosmos that he supposedly created from nothing and which he supposedly lords over.

I wonder what Maimonides meant by "incorporeality"?

What is this incorporeal substance he refers to?

Is it the Ruach HakoDesh? If so what is it? How does it connect with energy?

Creation ex nihilo is rubbish since effect is nothing else but the cause in manifestation without loss of information.

What is meant by an "intermediary" between man and G-d?

How can there exist an "intermediary" between man and G-d when there does not exist a causal link between the two in view of the acceptance of the irrational doctrine of creation ex nihilo by Maimonides.

The impersonal is above the personal and the transcendent is above both the personal as well as the impersonal.

LOVE is an attribution of the personal, CONNECTEDNESS is the hallmark of the impersonal and BLISS is the leading feature of the transcendent.

The REALITY manifests through its field of consciousness-energy as a dual TRIUNE of PERSONAL-IMPERSONAL-TRANSCENDE NT states and as LOVE-CONNECTEDNESS-BLISS which are the prime characteristics of the first triple manifestation.

ENERGY CONUNDRUM

ENERGY is real and has tangible effects that can be measured and tapped but I remain unsatisfied with the vague descriptive of energy which is the "capacity to do work".

The question "what does the work?" turns back on itself by replying "energy does work" and when it is asked of energy "what is energy?" another incoherent answer is given that "energy is the capacity to do work".

All these confusing replies refer to the effect of energy and not to the thing (energy) itself and so none of these answers about energy cogently answer the question - what is energy? and yet energy is considered the fundamental thing constituting the cosmos. LOL.

Similarly, the question - "what is the basis of consciousness" cannot be convincingly answered.

What're your educational qualifications?

All your posts indicate that you lack higher academic credentials and besides it's evident that you have poor reasoning skills.

What job are you into?

Burger flipper? Salesman? Carpenter? Valet? Driver?

FRIJOLES: "Similarly, in many cases for specific posters, "what is the basis for intelligence" cannot be convincingly answered.."

JOEL: What a silly statement.

The basis of intelligence resides in consciousness itself.

While the noumenon/basis of consciousness is beyond the ken of physical science, yet we can infer much about the intelligence of specific posters by analyzing their replies on a variety of subjects.

Take yourself, for example - you claim that you have a PhD in a scientific discipline which I find very hard to believe in view of your very poor grasp of the fundamentals of Math and Science in addition to your poor reasoning skills.

Similarly, I find it hard to believe that MUQ is an engineer and that too from Roorkee (anyway, later, he denied the charge).

Well, MUQ is not an alum of Roorkee but at the same time I find it very hard to believe that MUQ is an engineer in view of his poor grasp of the fundamentals of Math and Science in addition to his poor reasoning skills.

In this sense, both MUQ and you stand on the same inferior level.

A clown like Hugh may find you "intelligent" but then would anyone possessing even an average IQ want a certification of "intelligence" from a dunce like Hugh?

SPROCKET is evidently a menial worker with poor educational qualifications. besides, he appears to hail from the teeming lower middle classes with pathetic income levels.

Anyway, it doesn't matter.

HELLO,

Where's HUGH?

Is he busy repairing the walls and the roof of his rundown shack that he calls home?

I thought that a former CEO of a MNC would be sufficiently well off to live in a luxury villa.

Brilliant.

If gays are abnormal because they do not procreate, the same could be said of perpetual virgins.

SPROCKET,

Come online.

I want to discuss the teachings of Moses ben Maimon (Maimonides) with you since you said that you've studied his teachings for 5 years.

I'll point out all the logical fallacies in the teachings.
