Philosophy is not scientific, it offers only questions, not answers. Two very different fields.
Again you are advocating the Scientism doctrine.

Here's a question for ya:

"How far do you think science can and should offer answers to the questions that are still considered the domain of philosophy?"

For example, can facts settle the issues of human existence such as what is right or wrong? Do you need to be scientific to be an ethical human being? Do you have to be scientific when it comes to making informed decisions in life and think of solutions to the problems you are facing?

And yet, you keep pointing out logical fallacies here that you learned from philosophy, you are a hypocrite. Just face reality! Who are you to determine what is objective reality for all of us?

I agree with you. Science fails to answer the important thoughts. Creation does..........but one must have the faith to move forward. The freaks on this forum are disgruntled JWs......Actually they are ugly to even look at. I am highly intelligent, I can answer all of your queries. I am IT.

Yet except for two probablyFORGED passages in the works of a Jewish writer mentioned above, and two disputed passages in the works of Roman writers, there isn't any mention of Jesus Christ at all.
Good. Do you know that there were some sort of hatred of Jesus and his followers?

Again, what about Pliny the younger, Tacitus and also the Roman adoption of the faith within a space of time?
That sites i didnot know why it is not going, the Jews knew the truth.

No, it's you who doesn't know the definition of insanity. You are delusional, it's a form of insanity that deals with believing something to be reality without solid evidence to justify that belief.

I hope they don't put people like you in the medical field to help find a cure for mental illness. You are somewhat abusive.

You are exhibiting signs of what looks like a type of personality disorder. Have you heard of hysterical or narcissistic personalities? You are nuts. You need a major mental overhaul and tell yourself that in the mirror. Perhaps you need someone like me to tell you that you can be beautiful if you wanted to?

Being overly concerned with their looks

Being overly dramatic and emotional

Being overly sensitive to criticism or disapproval

Believing that relationships are more intimate than they actually are

Blaming failure or disappointment on others

Constantly seeking reassurance or approval

Having a low tolerance for frustration or delayed gratification

Needing to be the center of attention (self-centeredness)

Quickly changing emotions, which may seem shallow to others.

Judge not, lest ye shall be judged.

Actually it's - histrionic (hysterical) personality disorder.

Symptoms include emotional excitability, such as irrational angry outbursts or tantrums; abnormal craving for activity and excitement; overreaction to minor events; manipulative threats and gestures; egocentricity; inconsiderateness; inconsistency; and continuous demand for reassurance generated by feelings of helplessness and dependency. A person with this disorder is perceived by others as vain, demanding, superficial, self-centered, and self-indulgent. The disorder is more prevalent in women than in men.

Just cause you mommy and daddy had to shave your butt and make you walk backwards doesn't mean you can call other people ugly Unsure0.

Can you feel it, see it, hear it today?
If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway
You will never understand it cuz it happens too fast
And it feels so good, it's like walking on glass
It's so cool, it's so hip, it's alright
It's so groovy, it's outta sight
You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet
But it makes no difference cuz it knocks you off your feet
You want it all but you can't have it
It's cryin', bleedin', lying on the floor
So you lay down on it and you do it some more
You've got to share it, so you dare it
Then you bare it and you tear it
You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it
It's alive, afraid, a lie, a sin
It's magic, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win
It's dark, it's moist, it's a bitter pain
It's sad it happened and it's a shame
You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it
What is IT?
It's IT
What is IT?

I just picked up a used copy of a book entitled, The Flood in the light of the Bible, geology and archaeology by Alfred Martin Rehwinkel. It appears to be an attempt to show evidence of the Noachian flood. It is dated as it was written in 1951, but it should be interesting to see how the arguments are based and what evidence is used.

Anyone familiar with this book?

What you are describing sounds more like meditation with a focus on biofeedback. That's neither here nor there. Personally, I've speculated that some southeast Asians who have inherited Denisovan genes may have a developed biofeedback system that is a bit incongruous with most of humanity. Meditation on such things may be of physical value, as they probably need to separate their standard metabolic functions from those that can be exploited ever so slightly on a voluntary level. It might even be necessary to help purge metabolic overreactions to the environment.
Still, nobody is going to levitate, have out-of-body experiences, or read minds. The only reason one might want to think about such things is to PURGE those thoughts that they may have subconsciously have picked up from others! You can't live in a dream.
Interesting. What amazes me more is how the ancient people acquired knowledge of what symbolic meanings animals have. For example the deer - power animal symbolizes gentleness, unconditional love, and kindness. The Celtics and Native Americans prayed to the deer to give them good hunt. Perhaps because of this practice ingrained in early human hunters and gatherers, we developed an instinctive ability from our own associations with these game animals. Animals behave purely on instincts. And many animals possess traits that humans wish to have such as better hearing, night vision, agility, etc. Whatever made humans distinct from animals that possessed the ability to decipher symbolic meanings in animals, probably led to intelligence and heightened sensory perception. But that's just how I see it. We are all connected.
