I think that one of the great truths of metaphysics, religion, philosophy, etc. is that our Universe is of a dual nature. This being so, the fact that one law governs the world of the large/massive (General Relativity) and one law governs the world of the tiny/light (QED - quantum electrodynamics) and that the two co-exist yet "seem" irreconcilable may just be the way everything is. It does not invalidate one or the other.

Good does not invalidate evil. It exists because of it, or in response to it, or in opposition to it etc.

religion needs to die because its about believing in things cos you want them to be true, which is the opposite of submitting to knowledge and the truth. we have to deal with reality and the truth whether we like it or not.

but what needs to happen is the ongoing cross cultural exchange between the east and west needs to continue, despite the myriad dominant reactionary forces that are trying to halt it.

the reason it needs to continue is that for a western person, only a traumatic encounter with buddhism or related approaches can violently unclog all the unconscious metaphysical biases that creep into our conception of the world and cripple our culture and science.

also buddhist metaphysics line up with what quantum physics neuroscience et all are discovering and therefore offer us a cultural framework with which to navigate them.

the truth is an indifferent reality that does not care about us. we are breeding for the sake of fufilling our embedded genetic replicators. it's a cycle of birth/death suffering that has no reason or purpose, will eventually go extinct and produces vast suffering and atrocity.

we have to deal with nihilism rather than denying it. science implies nihilism but of course nihilism itself is nihilistic, in that trying to "hold it" as a viewpoint is only a slightly lesser form of delusion.

exactly. suchfriends complains about how "mathematics doesn't reconcile" while denying the mental somersaults he must perform constantly in order to justify the belief that his fairytale actually happened on earth. the beam, the eye, i forget how that shit goes-- an admonition for people to look at their own bullshit first.

its not really that important to me to attack suchfriends religion.

i think if you are truly scientific and not some new atheist douche whose just replicating christianity only with man as god, then you see religion as a memetic code used for social regulation. that's all fair enough really because i know that the world outside of religion is often just as hellish. religion can help some people in very limited ways and it's a way of people to form social bonds and get each others backs. its still based on delusions and lies, but i don't believe in belief so what people believe is not really as important as what they do.

but its still very problematic for the politics it pushes, the greed and abuse that it perpetuates, and the ignorance and handicapping of progress.

what i have to attack are the instances he says things that aren't true or the instances when he promotes ignorance and the post modern delusion that we just can't know certain things. cos this is really just building dams trying to hold of the semantic apocalypse

i don't care to attack his own peculiar brand of religion (there are worse ones to worry about), but when he starts his ignorant antiscientific tirades it's like my mind breaks out in hives and i start rolling eyes like an epileptic.

i'm not against questioning anything, especially science-- shit, science is based on questions and it sure knows what it doesn't know about-- but the guy preaches with such close-minded conviction it's pathological. socrates knew that he knew nothing, but suchfriends is convinced he knows everything. and he never makes mistakes!

well, religion is a matter of faith, and to that extent people require conviction. most people need some kind of belief to an extent. fair enough.

the problem is when everything else outside of religion becomes a matter of faith and conviction, and the mind closes and has no room left for doubt. in other words, everything becomes religion. it's not a lottery prize, it's an illness.

i dont hold faith and conviction in a high regard.

i also dont believe in the need for belief. its just a story we tell ourselves because we are dedicated to the idea that nihilism can be overcome through denying it, because our beliefs must be stronger than reality because reality is only an expression of our mind or some other shit.

-

but yes, that's EXACTLY THE PROBLEM. when they attack things outside of religion. they want to build up the symbolic power of their religion, so they need things for it to crush/undermine. science is the one they chose now because science is their biggest threat and they realize on a sub conscious level that it's going to fucking decimate them. they've been bluffing and playing for time. that's what the post modern era has all been about. failed attempts to put off the inevitable. the vain hope that this failure itself means something.

the idea of knowing everything doesn't make a lot of sense. however i have to admit to becoming very cognitively closed in recent years probably out of desperation.
