After a lot of time spent contemplating and researching various philosophic and spiritual concepts, I have disocvered something. Frankly, we don't know #. What I mean is this. I research endlessly, expecting to find some definitive answer on things. In the end, what I find is various people making educated guesses, the best of which are guided by logic. In other words, noone seems to really KNOW about anything.
Everyone seems to have some education, and make their best guess based on logic. Well guess what? This is what I do too! In other words, I am in no less of a position to theorize about anything, the nature of reality and so forth, than anyone else. I'm just takign in the knowledge I have available to me, which is fairly expansive. I'm just using my intelligence and logic, which is fairly well developed. After all of this, I develop a theory. One might think this is just 'some theory,' not entirely legitimate. But guess what? If you look into all the other theories...everyone else is doing the same thing. Noone KNOWS #, really.edit on 15-7-2012 by TheJourney because: (no reason given)edit on 15-7-2012 by Gemwolf because: Removed profanity from title

That's why I always laugh when someone tells me, "Do your own research!" You can't research unless there are facts to research. It's all speculation, and nothing more. A lot of contradictions, too, which makes it even worse.

Seek all of your answers from inside. That is the only answer that is logical.

"A person seeking the truth will most likely choose agnosticism. All of the other choices require faith."
I say that is an epic quote.
"For that is what an agnostic is, a seeker. One who seeks the answers to the questions that, to date, no one has definitive answers for such as, Is there a god? What is man's purpose? Is there a heaven? Is there a hell? Etc. If there were empirical evidence that established the answers to these questions, there would be no debate on the subject."

Now, now. Everybody knows a little #. For example... the correct ratio of # to dirt = wonderful harvests and beautiful flowers. When a star is blown to #, there results the creation of precious metals. If you put another kind of # under enough heat and pressure, you get coal, then further down the line you get diamonds. In a nutshell, know your #.
