I am a bit of a larrikin, as life is pretty much a joke to me, everything is potentially funny depending on the perspective. I don't really care whether you think I am a real Satanist or not.

    I'm a metalhead, and while metalheads in the larger scheme of things are outcasts, not accepted by the mainstream, I have no illusions about being unique in that regard. I just do my thing, which just happens to be something a whole lot of other people do. So what? To me an individual is not someone who is necessarily completely unique from everyone else, but someone who does there thing despite what everyone else does or expects them to do. And if some of that fits into the realm of something that a mass of other do as well, so what>I'm a metalhead, and while metalheads in the larger scheme of things are outcasts, not accepted by the mainstream, I have no illusions about being unique in that regard.

    I'm just saying, be aware of what personality constructs have been sold to you, and of what their costs are in the greater scheme of things.

    Well I am not assuming that there is a Prime mover, I am just open to the possibility that there may be one. Which means I am not a rigid atheist. And when contemplating the possibilities of what a God that may exist is, I see it as one with the concept of nature and the universe, as opposed to a personal deity. I try to based my opinions that can not be proven either way on what we can observe about the universe. So for instance, the notion of an all powerful loving God is inconsistent with a seemingly cruel natured world, death disease, suffering and so on, does not seem compatible with the notion of a loving God. However, if you view god(s) as the very universe or nature itself, than the ways of the cosmos are explain in conjunction with that notion of god(s). God is nature...I can see that. Though you could never test that hypothesis, so it is it is only philosophical.Well I am not assuming that there is a Prime mover, I am just open to the possibility that there may be one.

    I have a follow up coming for your esponse as a whole, but I have to ask, wouldn't not assuming there is a god yet being open to the possibility (essentially knowing you don't know), wouldn't that be agnosticism?

    “I try to based my opinions that can not be proven either way on what we can observe about the universe.”

    No you don't. We can observe this from your example below...

    “So for instance, the notion of an all powerful loving God is inconsistent with a seemingly cruel natured world, death disease, suffering and so on, does not seem compatible with the notion of a loving God.”

    First of all you repeated yourself as if you wrote the last part of your sentence having forgotten that's what you said in the first part. It's kind of got a structure like AA BB AA.

    “So for instance, the notion of an all powerful loving God is inconsistent with what appears to me to be a cruel natured world which includes within it death, disease, suffering and so on.”

    That simplification aside, note your adjectives. “inconsistent” and “incompatible” All you're really saying is the idea of a loving god doesn't fit in with what appears to be true to you, thus, you are reasoning from ideas, which makes you a person of reason, not empiricism or evidence. They aren't mutually exclusive, but your statement is that the world seems to have a cruel nature, not that it does. It is something you've reasoned is possibly true, based on vague ideas about death, disease, suffering and so on.

    The Openness to Experience is strong with this one. :)

    My position that nature is cruel and God is not all loving comes in part after years of contemplating Roman Catholic dogma. But I invoke the words of Stephen Fry on this issue. “Yes, the world is very splendid but it also has in it insects whose whole lifecycle is to burrow into the eyes of children and make them blind. They eat outwards from the eyes. Why? Why did you do that to us? You could easily have made a creation in which that didn’t exist. It is simply not acceptable.

    “It’s perfectly apparent that he is monstrous. Utterly monstrous and deserves no respect whatsoever. The moment you banish him, life becomes simpler, purer, cleaner, more worth living in my opinion.”

    But it is a deep philosophical and theological question that people have been trying to answer for centuries. That is, if God is all loving, why does he allow suffering? I'm not the first, nor will I be the last to chime in on this. There is a story, it may be apocryphal, but it is potent either way, of a quote that was carved on a wall of a concentration camp "If there is a God, He will have to beg for my forgiveness".But it is a deep philosophical and theological question that people have been trying to answer for centuries.

    Here's my take. People consider this because they fail to think for themselves. Nonody comes up with the all-loving god bit on their own, they get the idea from someone else. It's more interesting to me to learn why people believe the things they do, than to take on someone else's idea.Here's my take. People consider this because they fail to think for themselves.

    yeah I have had had do have numerous diagnoses over the years, everything from Borderline Personality Disorder to, OCD, to ASD etc and so on. All I know is by having the monthly injection I don't really hear voices anymore and my mood is a lot more stable than it is when I am not medicated. That said I am supposed to take a bunch of pills too which I don't because they make me bloated and feel like shit anyways. I still have my bad days, but over all I am pretty good. Music and meditation works wonders for keeping me in check, and not feeding my delusions is good too. Knowing what stimulates them and avoiding them the best I can.yeah I have had had do have numerous diagnoses over the years, everything from Borderline Personality Disorder to, OCD, to ASD etc and so on.

    While hospitalized, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1995. However after further evaluations it was determined that indeed I suffered from depression and ADHD. I have been fortunate to have seen the same Doctor for now 20 years. Nevertheless, like yourself I meditate on various extreme sides of the spiritual spectrum. To me they are explorations that allow me to come away with a greater understanding of my spirit.While hospitalized, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1995.
