a message to da blob
i respect your possition. i actually have a bachelors in biblical literature. however, don't you think if you want to have a positive impact on peoples view of god, religion, and spirituality, then the least responsible thing you could do in an intp forum is quote the bible? the bible is great, if you accept it as true, but if a person is not even in a position to be open to what the bible says, and most intp's in todays age will not be, then you need to find a better way to argue positively for god. (i am not trying to be rebuke you, it is just that i have had the above personal insight as at one time in life i thought quoting the bible, or making purely biblical arguments for the existence of god was a good thing to do, but now i realize it usually does more harm than good.)
-NietzscheWhat, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you:
“This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you, all in the same succession and sequence - even this spider and this moonlight between the trees, and even this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence is turned upside down again and again, and you with it, speck of dust!”
Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him:
“You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.”
If this thought gained possession of you, it would change you as you are or perhaps crush you. The question in each and every thing, “Do you desire this once more and innumerable time more?” would lie upon your actions as the greatest weight. Or how disposed would you have to become to yourself and to life to crave nothing more fervently than this ultimate eternal confirmation and seal?
but trying that in life just doesnt seem to work.
Maybe, but it brings up an interesting question.
Is it more acceptable to breathe life into an old thread, or to make a new thread with the same subject?
