Religion vs. Philosophy

Discuss philosophical questions regarding theism (and atheism), and discuss religion as it relates to philosophy. This includes any philosophical discussions that happen to be about god, gods, or a 'higher power' or the belief of them. This also generally includes philosophical topics about organized or ritualistic mysticism or about organized, common or ritualistic beliefs in the existence of supernatural phenomenon.

Yes, that's right. You have shown partiality in this issue and you need to explain your reasons.

Cheers,

Intolerance of things people are partial to, as long as that partiality does not affect others, is a disagreeable thing to do in my opinion.

Nubbles:

Sincerely: Well done! But "enegue' is baiting you: You've made your point when you said, "you": That's a "gotcha" too. You do not need to explain anything more to "enegue". She/He knows it's a "gotcha", otherwise he would not be baiting you; provoking you to set you up. Don't ruin it for yourself. Rest on your laurels.

Best wishes and best regards,

Brian Leslie Engler

That's good. Now, can you explain how I was being intolerant of Youngfool? Here is where he came into the topic.

In my responses to him, I confined my comments to HIS words. I didn't vent my spleen on a whole bunch of people because I saw a problem with what some of them were doing, which is exactly what you seem to be cautioning people about.

Cheers,
enegue.

I didn't say you were being intolerant of Youngfool. I said intolerance of partiality to that which does not affect anyone is disagreeable.

Yes, I caution people about that. Everyone.

Hi, Nubbles.

You said, "Intolerance of things people are partial to, as long as that partiality does not affect others, is a disagreeable thing to do in my opinion." and I guess your abreviation of this to, "intolerance of partiality to that which does not affect anyone is disagreeable.", means the same thing, but I like the first one better.

Can you now tell me what it was that Youngfool was partial to, that I was intolerant of?

Cheers,
enegue.

Hi enegue:

Has it ever occurred to you that you may have a somewhat narcissitic, passive aggressive personality?

Probably not. Look it up if you want to. You might find the idea interesting, if not valid.

Best wishes and best regards,

Hi Wooden shoe;

Well, at least I knew that I was being baited. The best way to deal with a narcissitic, passive aggressive personality is to nix the guilt or shame, be firm, consistent, and stick to the facts.

there is blind faith religion where one concedes to accept a belief whether it has been proven to them or not. There is also religion that came abput as a successionm from the most ancient of times and cannot even be traced into history. many of these ancient religions have a commoin oriign even thouygh their symbolism and teachings have become somewhat different. Names and details may have been altered but the stories and meanings are too similar to be coincidental.

I think that all religion and philosophy has this same common origin and in the end it all teaches the same root aspects of metaphysics.
An open mind means a willingness to reject what you previously thought may have been the truth.
