''your view and why its correct''.... It may sound obvious but I think most of us have our views because it feels ''correct'' to us. But thats actually a good question to ask people in the business of proselytizing. I just post my views here because ATS offers a somewhat neutral platform to discuss a wide variety of religious subjects. _________________________________________Like politics, when it comes to religion, groups are going to stick together on the basis of what they believe or disbelieve. So in that respect being ''correct'' on here isn't the same kind of ''being correct'' at a math problem, where your opponent has no choice but to admit being wrong if he doesn't get it right.
nothing exists outside the perception of consciousness.
If all life in the universe ceased to exist one day then so would the universe because the universe is made through conscious perception.
Life and the physical universe are intimately connected, you cannot have one without the other.
Why would perception equate existence? Would that not sort of put the egg being laid before the chicken existed to lay the egg?
I do agree with this absolutely but I think in a different way. The way I see the two being tied together is by life being a product of the physical universe. No proof to my thoughts of course but for some reason it works out in my head that way. But I also do not see life being necessary.
we know energy cannot be created or destroyed
Currently that is what we think I agree. But, we may very well be wrong. I know of no real support to go against it nor do I support the idea that that aspect of knowledge is wrong. Interesting outlook you have.
If you believe you cannot have one without the other, why do you think you can have one without the other? I'm confused by your answer.
Well, it's been proven beyond any reasonable doubt so far. Energy can transform but it can't be created or destroyed, and in the scientific circle that is a fact at this point and I agree with that conclusion.
If you were the last living thing in the universe and ceased to exist, how could you say the universe would exist at all anymore? There would be nothing to see it or feel it in any way and nothing would be able to make the statement "this exists". Without life, there is no existence because existence is life itself in my humble opinion.
