So in other words, you have to be ignorant in order to partake of the tree of life.

Cool!

if a frog had wings, he wouldn't bump his a@@ when he hops.

if a grass hopper could fire a .45, the birds wouldn't ____ with them.

play with fire, sooner or later you'll get burned.

why does a dog lick his balls, because he can.

if it walks like a duck, clucks like a duck, chances are it's a duck.

i could go on and on.

Clearly God wants us all to die, or else he never would've planted the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the first place.

And didn't God also say: Look! Man has become more like us, knowing good and evil. And didn't God also see that it was "good"?

And if God desired a deeper companionship to offset loneliness, then all of that would make sense. The knowledge of good and evil isn't evil in and of itself. It's good.

But also I don't really believe in the biblical God in the literal sense anymore... but I've done my fair share of studying it. So that's where all this BS comes from.

Knowledge is a mind-trap.
Ignorance is bliss. But is it only a mind-bliss? And does it really matter?


I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance. -- Socrates


Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance. -- Confucius

It is not that God wants us to die - there is only God - there is nothing separate. No (separate) thing can die because no (separate) thing was born. However - if the fruit of the tree of knowledge has been eaten - there will be a belief in some 'thing' other than what there is - what there is is what there is - just this!
'This that is' is not made of separate things.

There is no thing to know and no thing to know it.

"Your eyes even saw me as an embryo;
All its parts were written in your book
Regarding the days when they were formed,
Before any of them existed." - King David of Israel, c. 460 BCE (approx. 2400 years before the discovery of DNA and genomes)

“no empirical evidence supports the hypotheses of the spontaneous appearance of life on Earth from nothing but a molecular soup, and no significant advance in scientific knowledge leads in this direction.” - Professor of Biology Alexandre Meinesz, (How Life Began—Evolution’s Three Geneses, by Alexandre Meinesz, translated by Daniel Simberloff, 2008, pp. 30-33, 45.)

“Some writers have presumed that all life’s building blocks could be formed with ease in Miller-type experiments and were present in meteorites. This is not the case.
...
no nucleotides of any kind have been reported as products of spark-discharge experiments or in studies of meteorites.” - Robert Shapiro, professor emeritus of chemistry at New York University (Scientific American, June 2007, p. 48.)

“most researchers seem to assume that if they can make sense of the independent production of proteins and RNA under natural primordial conditions, the coordination will somehow take care of itself.” - Dr. Carol Cleland, a member of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Astrobiology Institute. Regarding the current theories of how these building blocks of life could have arisen by chance, she says: “None of them have provided us with a very satisfying story about how this happened.” (NASA’s Astrobiology Magazine, “Life’s Working Definition—Does It Work?”)

“The idea of the genome as a book is not, strictly speaking, even a metaphor. It is literally true. A book is a piece of digital information. . . So is a genome. ... The genome is a very clever book, because in the right conditions it can both photocopy itself and read itself.” (Genome—The Autobiography of a Species in 23 Chapters, by Matt Ridley, 1999, pp. 7-8.)

"Your word is truth." - Jesus Christ (referring to God's word, in prayer to his God)

I loved this thread, I'm going to think about and share a few of these quotes.

I once worked in a maximum security prison on a block for inmates with mental illnesses. There were a few inmates there who over the years I got to know and I would talk to for hours throughout the course of my day. I still remember a few of my favorite quotes from them.

"Women are stressful creatures"

"I want to believe you are a creature of light"

"This is all a simulation, we are our own children"

"I am a fire spirit, you are a water guardian, that is why we clash, I'm sorry I struck you, it seemed necessary at the time, I hope we can come to a positive conclusion"

Recently I read the book "Astrophysics For People In A Hurry" by Neil deGrasse Tyson, this quote blew my mind: "In the beginning, nearly fourteen billion years ago, all the space and all the matter and all the energy of the known universe was contained in a volume less than one-trillionth the size of the period at the end of this sentence".
