false. Start regular meditations twice a day for a few months and you will see after a while that there are things which science is not aware about but you are without a doubt aware of them (prana for instance is one basic thing). You can even get to the bottom of it all and discover the real nature of life or death and many other things but this level of realization is rare in the modern west society.


Personal experience is not evidence for anything. As I stated before, it's completely subjective to the individual who experiences it. The concepts are viewed differently throughout the entire world. There isn't any clear picture, and there isn't any clear evidence.

There are people from all religions who have achieved different high states of realization and they all say the same thing so it is not a belief thing but something which must be experienced with practice.


If they all came to the same conclusion, then why are the details different everywhere you look?


Elaboration...

As you state experience is personal and subjective... this is the reason all the details are different. different cultures religions etc are going to relate experience in a way particular and subjective to them with dogmatic terms. doing so of course limits understanding and communication of the experience itself that one wants to convey so another may be able to grasp the concept enough to understand and be able to relate it to their own experience to reach some sort of accord to better grasp the experience for what it is beyond terms and rote understanding and their own set of dogmatic terms... the more this clarification takes place the more understanding that all these various paths lead to rome as the devil really is in the details but not the truth of the matter in its absolute essence. salt has but one taste regardless of the mouth discriminating detail of the taste using the mind to do so that may conflict with another doing the exact same thing.

It immediately runs afoul of Kiri-kin-tha's Second Law of metaphysics: Nothing perfect persists.


that law only applies to this physical universe and it's inherently observed laws. perhaps in another universe the laws are different and perfection is allowed.

The concept of Purity in the Old and New testament differ . In a post chaotic modern world , purity refers to cleanse the inner heart of man and external riutals are now inadequate to perfect the soul.

Others schools insist on the necessity to purify the body




It's odd isn't it how all cultures talk about "purification" & letting go of attachments to earthly things as a pre-requisite of entering higher planes / worlds / heaven ? Attachment to things does seem to be very important in this regard, the discovery of the "quantum" world would seem to back it up too. READ MORE: www.disclose.tv...

Islamist stayed tune to the Old testament and Christians are more connected to the renewed version of purity.


In the Islamic tradition, purity is believed to be achievable through the avoidance of drug and alcohol usage, gambling, eating of certain foods such as pork. Muslims are also expected to maintain a measure of ritual cleanness, exclusion of women from certain area of life especially after pregnancy or menstruation. Desire for ritual purity would also encourage the suppression of impure beliefs of other people, discrimination against impure people and legally banning impure behaviors. (www.atheism.about.com/library). In the African Traditional religion, purity is highly cherished and like many other religions outside New Testament Christianity, strongly attached to the externals. There are rituals for purity, dressings for purity, deities of purity, and taboos that enhances purity. For example it is impure for a woman to stand up from a stool and for a man (not her husband) to sit on it immediately, while her warmth can still be felt on the stool (Oladayo Interview).
But it does not mean that there aren’t inner
requirements too. For example one of the highly cherished virtues of African religion is sexual purity and in this sense, virginity in many cultures is a moral virtue that is demanded and highly celebrated. If the survey would continue it will become very hard to see positions that would be as ethical as the position for any biblical Christian. The Bible,
God’s moral
law as revealed through its narrative and especially through the incarnation, Jesus Christ, is the sole authority for moral definition and moral living. The Old Testament despite its external and ceremonial prescriptions did not leave out models and paradigms for inner purity when it comes to the worship of the God of Israel. Christopher J. Wright using three paradigmatic portraits of model of behavior in the
