Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Disaffection is from lack of understanding. Sometimes you have to dig deep to gain understanding.
Reading a book or listening to a presentation is not knowing or understanding. It is just a topical awareness. Topical awareness can lead to more topical awareness, and more, and more, until you lose sight of where you started. Liars know how to do this. They get you to following the bread crumbs they toss out for you.
Give a liar the only microphone and he is the one the herd follows. I have posted many comments on here about mass media and His Master's Voice.
You are what you read. Expand your diet.
Man lies. Period. Through ignorance or design. Don't put your faith in the words of man. If men can afford to broadcast a message, then they expect to get a return on the expense. At your expense.
Listen to what is deep inside you.

You don't fully awake until you leave this noise and confusion, uIDiot.

I am quite familiar with human natire and have suffered a whole bunch because of it. A sensitive soul that ran a gauntlet of treachery and deceit for a long time. But instead of overreacting I tried to understand the reasons for it. This is why I can't hate or blame others. Don't have to accept them or believe they have a right to exist, but I can forgive them on my personal level. They are lost in this fog just like me, looking for a guiding light out of it. You haven't reached that level yet. You are still suffering from disillusionment and trying to extinguish those lights and trying to replace with your projections. Like I have said before, try understanding the reasons, and not kneejerk reacting to them. That's the scientific method, and it may have longer lasting benefits on your personal level.

You won't find the answers here from the outside, but from the inside.

I smiled when I saw your fully Awake. I've had a username since 2002 that has been quite unique. Never saw a duplicate. It is wehican. A process still in progress. There is a little lilt in the pronounciation.

Peace, UIDiot.

Make this living experience humorous to you. It's more fun.

You have never awakened from a dream and there was nothing around you to wake you up?
Something must have been real enough to you.
Reality has its way of bringing us to it from a slumber.
But when asleep you are not in this reality fully, I mean you must come to your senses to operate dangerous machinery and it requires being awake.
It's not recommended that you drive a car while asleep. Why is this Dave?
It's because when asleep you are not completely conscious to the physical reality.
It's not an alternate reality you go to when asleep, it is a disconnection from reality you go to when asleep. We can talk sleep cycles here, and during phases during these cycles we become more aware of the physical reality, sometimes leading to waking from a dream.

Are you suggesting that tribal legends can compare to what is real? Maybe you haven't quite woken up yet?
Tribal legends have Yeti in them too and the thunderbird. Do you really think this stuff is real?

Your mind is functioning on two separate levels of consciousness. Inner and outer.

This phyical reality can be quite unreal when you are fully awake in it. You yourself have experienced unexplained phenomenon you just shrugged off. You have surely experienced things that just were out of the ordinary or didn't fit in with your perceptions. Simple things, like that item you just knew was in the drawer, but isn't there. Or the thing that turns up unexpectedly. Your awake mental functions have a lot of holes in them,

Those legends are still occuring today. Something is causing them.

Don't poo poo what you don't know out of hand. That is ignorance. Look for the reasons for such phenomenon.

Your poo poo is based upon what others have filled your head with, not your personal expereince with it. Your brain is a shitcan.

You are a very strange guy Dave, the physical reality can be explained mirages and all.
My senses come from the seven holes in my head, and my awake mental functions need those senses, unlike you. Maybe you should go dream about what you should do next.

You are in a self contained illusion.

Which you are trying to share.

Do you exist, idiot?

Do you have a sense of being?

Why have you let others convince you that it is all a flash in the pan?

It is just the physical construction of your brain that sets limits. That awake consciousness that deals with action/reaction within this physical world. And makes errors in judgements and perceptions. You see things that aren't and you don't see things that are on a daily basis. Your conscious data stream gets interrupted.

"You are in a self contained illusion."

FULL STOP!

There is no self containment or illusion in the consensus of science.

Scientific consensus is the collective judgment, position, and opinion of the community of scientists.

Perhaps you describe yourself.
