<quoted text>
The two phrases are used more or less interchangeably. Materialism, physicalism and naturalism are roughly synonymous as well:
[1] Materialism - the doctrine that nothing exists except matter and its movements and modifications.
[2] Physicalism - the doctrine that the real world consists simply of the physical world.
[3] Naturalism - the doctrine that scientific laws are adequate to account for all phenomena
I prefer to refer to naturalism and the physical world rather than the material world or materialism for a few reasons:
For one, the physical world comprises more than matter/energy. There is also force, form, space and time, which are all in a sense aspects of matter, but not implied by the word materialism.
Also, the word materialism has been derogated by both by the Christians and Marx (dialectical materialism).
Have you seen the Wedge Document leaked from the Discovery Institute announcing its intention to "defeat scientific materialism and its destructive moral, cultural, and political legacies" and to "reverse the stifling materialist world view and replace it with a science consonant with Christian and theistic convictions"?
These Christians also declaimed, "materialist reformers [who] advocated coercive government programs" which it referred to as "a virulent strain of utopianism."
That sounds like they are conflating philosophical naturalism with Marxism. If their purpose was to demean the word, they have succeeded. Where the Christian have shit, I generally steer clear.
Hope that helps.
Thanking you.

Look at that. There's clues everywhere if your good enough.

"She is the apple of my eye" What does that mean? It means extreme love. It means protection .

Adam and Eve eating an apple represents the separation
from One and entering a material world. I world where we are all guaranteed death . It is just a cycle of energy (us) creating worlds of illusion to bring out the emotions in us. Emotions = Energy
Sorry, amigo, but that is nonsense to me.

well there is one god upon whom we agree

is there other gods you do not believe in?
What is the proof of this one god?

To begin with how is he causally connected with the universe?

How did he create this universe from nothing?

How does he govern the universe in the absence of a causal link between this extra-cosmic deity and the universe?

If this god is spirit then what is spirit in terms of its material and force composition?

Spirit is not mind as someone suggested.

Mind is a grade - the deductive aspect - of the manifested unified field of consciousness-energy.

Ok..... Now you're comparing belief in Jesus to a child believing in Santa.
You're lost.
The only difference between belief in Santa and Jesus is that most adults acknowledge that the former is a lie told only to children.

oh I agree

you build a new god, surely you are correct.

no one has ever thought to build a new god before.
So, how is the basal consciousness and energy created from nothing by your extra-cosmic and creationist god and besides what happens to the basal consciousness-energy field at the end of a cosmic cycle? Does it get dissolved into nothing? How?

Can you see how we as material beings mimic the Universe , the same principals apply to both.
We in this form need to love/attract to survive and expand, the Universe needs to do the same.
The Universe can Love as non destructive energy, but it cannot expand without attraction , due to attraction releasing emotions. It is One and only One, how can it be attracted to it self ? Ego? It needed a material world to extract it's emotions.

Your first line was flawed, hence the flaw of your last.
If you don't understand that slavery is immoral, and you're unwilling to see that instructions regarding slavery overtly - not tacitly - condones slavery, you utterly fail to understand morality.

The worst part about your inability to understand morality is that you received this from your religion. Christianity has destroyed your ability to understand what is moral, what is misery, how your fellow human should be treated - how sad!

You need to talk to God to know what He - presumably a perfectly moral being - would not condone slavery?!? Seriously???

I've interviewed a young woman who was stolen from her family, raped and abused till she was broken, turned into a sex slave. She hates men, unreservedly, with all her heart, and fears them. Now, tell me that she would be made whole if only her slavers had access to an instruction manual.

I spit on your morality.

Again, my ethnicity is American.
My heritage is American.
My ancestors are American.
Whatever happened before that, I don't care.
It's a problem for the religious to acknowledge history. You exemplify that problem above.

Your entire argument here is "might makes right if we kill most of them and that means I don't have to care about the past."

Praise the Lord! Don't think! Don't know! Just praise and praise and praise!

<quoted text>

That ultimate reality you describe seems to be already manifested as this present physical universe: "the subtlest ranges of consciousness and energy" are intimately interwoven on this physical plane.

Is this gross material/physical plane your idea of the ultimate reality?
"the subtlest ranges of consciousness and energy" are intimately interwoven on this physical plane."

Some subtle ranges of consciousness-energy are infused in matter. At present, dualism, wear and tear, death, diseases, wars, suffering, poverty, substance abuse, personality defects, excess sensuality and other flaws are the leading features of unregenerate matter. The world is in a big mess and getting worse.

If the higher ranges of consciousness-energy could be made to penetrate matter then the higher or superior powers of consciousness-energy can become a living fact here in matter and this would then result in annulling several unregenerate features that're prevalent in the material world as it is now constituted.

The higher dimensions of consciousness-energy are more unified or centralized in character and action and have none of the disintegrative and lower or baser instincts as we now see everywhere in the world.

I tend to see Salvation as a process of transcending the physical state not perfecting it in itself; because man is necessarily restricted by the limits of his physical being.
i disagree.

See, salvation must be integral - no part of existence (material, emotional, vital or mental) must be left out.

Every aspect of existence should be purified and perfected by infusing the lower reaches of existence with the superior powers of the higher ranges of consciousness-energy so that the whole system vibrates as a singularity. Perfection is the aim. Once this is achieved, then, there is no coming and no going. One simply IS!
