Re: Can Anagami reborn to human world?

Canadian legal terminology. My bad.

Re: Can Anagami reborn to human world?

It has something to do with their history. The ghost of postcolonialism by proxy, IMO. Thailand was never formally colonized like Sri Lanka and Burma were, when the well-meaning but spiritually-dense and frequently culturally-intolerant missionaries of the 1800s or so would come in and essentially ...

Re: Atomism and Nuclear Energy

If you are able to get the jest of what i am trying to say, calling it atomic bomb seems to be more an act of propaganda than a real technicality. I think it's just a common semantic shift. Initially, when they first started calling atoms "atoms" in modern science, they were thought to be...

Re: Atomism and Nuclear Energy

Well, nuclear weapons don't really arrive or "come" of their own accord with any purpose of their own at all. People have intentions and purposes, not the weapons they make. And if they wanted to use weaponry to refute ancient atomism, that's not how you fight a theory. General relativity...

Re: Atomism and Nuclear Energy

Atoms were so named by the thinkers of antiquity because they could not be split. The atoms were seen as "elementary particles," the smallest possible units of division, that were impossible to be subdivided further into smaller and more subtle constituents. Nuclear power and weaponry is a...

Re: Can Anagami reborn to human world?

The Thai courts are very foolish IMO to be humouring this sort of thing. Imagine if, in America, some lunatic claimed to be the incarnation of the Holy Spirit, the States sued them for this, and then those same good ol' United States had to waste their crown prosecutor's time refuting the claims tha...

Re: it's hot!!

The "Mandela effect" IMO is nothing more than perceptual disturbance characteristic of weaker & more feeble minds, minds that also have a marked tendency to profoundly overestimate the development of their associated mental faculties.

Re: Religion

I always wonder about the descision to speak of we when the speaker clearly can’t know all people who would be ‚we‘ and what they have seen and maybe even sometimes better took as factual and objective at some point, as hard and unbelievable it seemed at first. You appear to misunderstand this. By ...

Re: Religion

Yet such an objective refutation is all that matters, religiously. In my either informed or uninformed opinion, Sphairos's theses are largely too stupid to actually interface with at any serious intellectual level. Furthermore, I have a strong suspicion and various reasons to believe that he actual...

Re: The great cappucciNO SELF debate

Silly Little Grasshopper, breakfast beverages don't answer questions. They can't even talk, in actuality. It might look like a cappuccino is speaking, but it's just a trick of the interplay of the light of the sun on its foamy surface. Some cappuccinos are all surface and have no depth of their own....

Re: Religion

I can actually reject Sphairos's contentions without him thinking that I have any valid grounds to do so, and still have effectively rejected those contentions. I didn't say that I had objectively refuted his contentions. That wouldn't have been true at all. Have you ever actually spoken with a memb...

Re: Religion

So you can't show any problem with my definition? It proves my expertise. I've already rejected your contentions. No, you haven't, by any means. When I posted my contentions alongside what I intended as, more-or-less, a blanket rejection of pretty much everything you'd said thus far in this thread,...

Re: Religion
