In reply to your discussion....on faith, posted by Jai Narayan on October 11, 2004, at 8:10:22

Hi Jai, thankyou for your post :-)

I have studied "Companion to Philosophy of Religion" which is an anthology of articles from a variety of perspectives and another (can't remember what it is called) by Louis Poijman which is a nice, fairly easy introduction to some of the contemporary issues in the philosophy of religion. Aside from that I try to import stuff that I have learned from philosophy of mind, language, metaphysics etc, and, well I just kind of make it up as I go along really...

Philosophy typically is incomprehensible. Even to the 6 or 8 people who actually care about such things (sigh). It is hard to express oneself clearly enough so that what one says is comprehensible to others. I have a lot to learn there.

> I often questioned "the God" question.
> There are belief systems that say God is evolving and this makes the most sense to me.
> I can embue this evolving god into all that I see, taste, feel...etc.
> When I was at my most delving into what is god...
> I came to the realization that we humans build our beliefs right up to the unknown...the edge of the void.
> It appears to me there is the ever present center of unknown. That which cannot be defined or named or owned.
> Deep down what I really believe in is the interconnectedness of all life....our energy.
> If we humans could just stop fighting each other over who has the real god....
> Allowing and supporting that each of us has our own set of beliefs and respecting that we each are unique and diverse and taking delight in that diversity.

Thankyou for sharing your thoughts and contributing to the discussion! I am interested in what you have to say.

I like to think (as a matter of faith) that everything is conscious. That charge at a place is conscious. Whats it like to be a rock? Well, its not like terribly much, because the rock can't think ABOUT terribly much because it doesn't have any senses to convey information. Somehow or other we became 'confined' by the boundaries of our bodies. One day we shall return to become part of the homogenous consciousness.

Sigh. Is that faith in the 'supernatural' after all?
