Well that is your faith and your logic.
Faith and logic have nothing
to do with it.
You are on a moving train. You drop a ball. To you, the ball drops along a perpendicular line. That is what you observe.
And that is all you can observe. You can do this ten thousand times and you will never see anything other than a path of the ball which is
perpendicular to the floor of the train. Your observation represents the consciousness of the 'thinker'.
I am in the train station. Every time you drop the ball I see motion along the "y" axis AND motion along the "x" axis.
I see something that you do not see
I see something that you cannot see
That is not any criticism; neither is it any condemnation.
It is merely a statement of fact.
My perception represents the "observing consciousness" Created 'by and in the image of God'.
Not being able to see the curved path of the ball, you, on the moving train, can accuse me of being "delusional" or a "fanatic" or that I merely
that the path of the ball is a curved path.
But there is no belief and no faith and no logic involved in my perception at all.
What I observe can be observed by a 7 year old.
I am merely reporting what I am observing.
Let's be clear: I am not
disputing or denying your perception of the ball as falling along a perpendicular line to the floor of the train.
That is what you observe.
But neither do you have the right to deny what I am actually observing while standing in the train station.
In fact, if you get off the train altogether and have someone else drop the ball, you will observe precisely the same thing that I observe.
