The problem is that GOD has been given a very bad wrap by ATHIESTS who have not yet evolved enough to sense what is beyond our normal senses. They don't know what GOD is.



To be quite frank,

I am completely speechless about this particular statement.

All I can say is, are you serious?


Well, most evolved people see Atheists as essentially flat-earthers.

You can't seem to look beyond your 5 animal senses and figure out that there is something out there that is greater than the sum of its parts.

All the while having a conscious and a subconscious mind.

As to WHAT the bigger picture is, who knows? Thousands of different versions of it, thoughts about it.

But to just deny it seems pretty ignorant.

Religion Cannot be Quantified , it is Based on Individual Faith .

There are two distinct hemispheres of the brain, The left hemisphere is most concerned with life and its problems, the right hemisphere is more concerned with inner knowledge and how to best serve the left hemisphere.

A scientific mind entrains the way it operates through logical thinking and fact gathering, it is intense work, to exercise your mind to be that rigid. Many people do not go through that training and the balance between hemisphere stays balanced and more causal information is available.

A scientific mind is limited to the knowledge attained by science. A causal mind attains knowledge from a quantum field of information that is not available to those who's natural mind has not exercised the regions proportionally.

To them, science becomes their religion.

Well, most evolved people see Atheists as essentially flat-earthers. 



Do you even read or listen to what you are typing and telling yourself and others?

To "evolve" mentally you first have to expound your ideas so that the people that you look down upon can rationally visualize and intellectually perceive the information and message that you are trying to convey. Not just try to sound like you are a superior entity or self enlightened being. A message that would most certainly not use the word evolve and then talk of a ancient premise such as a god or a belief system that was most certainly contrived from such individuals who themselves were a majority, that thought that a deity or multiple there of, were responsible for all actions and consequences of man, beast, and world.




You can't seem to look beyond your 5 animal senses and figure out that there is something out there that is greater than the sum of its parts. 



You know nothing about me. What you think you know about me, which it is quite obvious from your posts, is a far cry of who I actually am and what my conscience has experienced, and what my perception of reality actually consist of. Because let's face it, reality is a constant, the inconsistent part is what everyone's perception of reality is.




But to just deny it seems pretty ignorant. 



Ignorance to me, is that some people think that their ideologies are the only way to such "evolution". Which have in fact closed themselves off from higher learning and higher cognitive abilities by confining their belief systems to a structure that is already laid out and, although claim to evolve, stick to guidelines to this unproven structure system.

Considering the majority, IF not all "flat earthers" are religious wing nuts or simply morons...

that analogy is pretty far off

Sounds quite similar to the convergent and divergent way of thinking.

I do have to admit that although I have taken a psychology course I cannot really seem to find much, if any any information on a scientific mind versus a casual mind.

I do like to read and on occasion do a little research on topics I find interesting, If you could post a link I would love to take a look.

I did manage to find this and read it.
scientific versus artistic mind

I think the analogy is perfect, it is how we perceive those who's minds have atrophied and desensitised through lack of exercise.

A Buddhist monk will train his brain to become more sensitive to the field. Everybody can do it. You just have to meditate.

Once you access the field through what is popularly described as enlightenment, your brain will then synchronise and the damage will be repaired.

Good luck

I browsed the article, Yes, that is a modern psychologists view, because they don't really know how to test for what it is that connects us to another plane of reality.

Science is clueless. It is clear that we all use both sides of the brain. It is wether certain information is being received at a quantum level not a molecular level. You can't test it, you don't know what IT is.

Unless you start understanding metaphysics I am afraid you will never understand.

Sorry! hope that didn't sound barky, It's just what I know.

That is CAUSAL, as in causation.

so you're basically saying flat earthers have brain damage?

In a word YES .. in more than a word, I would say their left brain has atrophied.

Balance is what is needed.

It saddens me that you have taken all that time and used such pretty words to just prove my point.

You won't understand that and I get it.

For the record, perceived reality is reality.

Print that out, put it on some nice paper and put it on your refrigerator with a magnet to hold it there.

Read it as the years go by.

Maybe someday you will get it.

It really isn't.

Flat Earthers are actually fundamentalists or morons, yes.

Socialists and Progressives can be put in both categories... a group of people who believe in something that has never been proven because it has always failed but is a concept that they still will get behind just because they have a blind belief in it. A faith in something that cannot be proven.

Same thing with Atheists.

You know... a cult.

Sorry to jump in again but, yes you could legitimately call atheism a cult. Atheists are missing something, and so they club together, very cult like and attempt to discredit those who have a broader vision.

From a spiritual perspective it is sad but expected, because we have all been there and done that, but after many, many. many, many, many …… lives, We are now in receipt of our full faculties, but it is really difficult to get through to those who are still in the thick of it, testing one two, hello, testing ....

Athiests tend to replace God with science which being a human concern is not infallible as for the sciences biology,chemistry,physics,quantum physics,mathematics we didnt invent them merely discovered what was already there.

And as yet have only scratched the surface of what is there, they are looking in the wrong place.
