Well, I guess we will have to agree to disagree. What you are saying contradicts your original op. It seems to me that you really don’t want to know
You are discussing some kind of metaphysical philosophy of your own design, not seeking truth. Relative “truth” is not the truth. And I would say
the same to you. That your mind is closed because you won’t allow any form of reason or logic or real truth to enter it. If this is what you want to
discuss –your philosophies, then you are in the wrong forum. This is the science and technology forum, not the metaphysical and philosophy forum. I
suggest you go there.
I beg to differ with this. Many people lived perfectly constructive lives without ever knowing the Earth revolves around the Sun.
– This has nothing to do with what I said nor does it have anything to do with your op. I said people should know, not that they couldn’t
live constructive lives without knowing. And in terms of the progression of scientific truth, this knowledge is needed. And if you fail to learn what
science is then this conversation is circular and closed.
It just may take that one person, who does NOT know the Earth revolves around the Sun, to make that discovery for us all.
– Again, I think it would be good for you to go the library and learn about the history of our solar system models, especially Galileo.
That's all i'm saying here.
– You’re saying a lot of things here, none of which correspond to the op or the forum posted in.
Too many facts can close a mind, regardless of whether those facts all point to one single truth. If you take every word in the Bible as fact, then
maybe there is justification for killing others that do not agree with your religion. Then you become extreme in your understanding and beliefs and
justified as well, all because of an abundance of overwhelming "facts".
– You put facts in quotes which just makes me sigh heavily. I think of the kind poster who took the time out to answers your questions and
I sigh again. And how did the bible end up in this conversation? I didn’t put it there.
I’m not going to have a philosophical conversation with you. I'm unfollowing this thread, so I'm not going to respond to you anymore.
Good luck. I hope you find what you are looking for.
