"Science can destroy religion by ignoring it as well as by disproving its tenets. No one ever demonstrated, so far as I am aware, the non-existence of Zeus or Thor - but they have few followers now." -- Arthur C. Clarke

From today's featured article [as of September 12, 2014]:

The problem of religious language considers whether it is possible to talk about God meaningfully if the traditional conceptions of God as being incorporeal, infinite, and timeless, are accepted. Various theories of religious language either attempt to show that such language is meaningless, or that it can still be meaningful. The via negativa is a way of referring to God according to what he is not. Analogy uses human qualities as standards against which to compare divine qualities. Symbolism is used non-literally to describe otherwise ineffable experiences. A mythological interpretation of religion attempts to reveal fundamental truths behind religious stories. Alternative explanations of religious language cast it as having political, performative, or imperative functions. Logical positivists argue that religious language is meaningless because its propositions are impossible to verify. Religion has also been classified as a language game that is meaningful within its own context. Others have used parables to approach the problem, such as R. M. Hare's parable of a lunatic, and John Hick's parable of the Celestial City to propose his theory of eschatological verification. (Full article...)

Reality can be bizarre and absurd...

This waka kid just might be the smartest guy on this forum. One word of advice though waka, don't distance yourself from those that don't think like you. Let them do that if they want.

What I find about me on the forum is that I try to keep up with every conversation, and that is obviously annoying for you, I think. I'll try to change that. Like KU said.

Maybe something is missing in the translation. I know English is not your first language. You are not annoying to me. You are a breath of fresh air. I'm just saying be open to other opinions and beliefs. You will learn a lot more that way. You are smart enough to separate the wheat from the chaff.

First things first, is that all of their may forms?
Secondly, I wasn't misidentifying anything. I was saying that time CAN be a hot air balloon.

1) May = Many... I'm well known for misspelling, pretty much no one bothers with it anymore and powers right through it, unless of course it is a major faux pas, then I never hear the end of it... :o

2) I have a thing about balloon blaim, due to my position on Flying Saucers... :idea:...sorry for misidentifying your position... :mrgreen:
