.....and which is why I didn't add the "more later" stuff. I put the "Re: Enslaved Negroid Minds" in my subject box to alert to ones and ones that it was prompted as a result of reading through the posts under that particular thread. What I saw in that thread was ones talking from logic and ones talking from faith. I "questioned" the dichotomy of the two, with my statment of Logic vs Faith.
Not going for it now...but...I believe it was Ayinde that posted the quotes on knowledge - which by the way I felt were some thought-provoking and I will put a link on my site to them - believe it was Einstein which is purported as saying "Knowledge without experience is just information".
There are those that have an "experience" of their "faith", although it still isn't logical, sometimes, not even to them. Faith in and of itself doesn't have logic behind it, nor can it be defined, therefore, it's experiences cannot be defined. On the otherhand, do we take logic and define it ONLY with the criterion that we KNOW, since there is little we KNOW, cause we take much of what we KNOW on FAITH that we've been given the right INFORMATION - Which as people of ALL creeds we have come to know is not ALWAYS , RIGHT!
I remember makeing a "light reponse" to the post - (had to, since some of you seem to be so uptight - and trust me, I get it, I too am passionate about many of these subjects), but anyway I digress, I posted a "light response" to a question asked "were you there", and I said YES!. Boy, did I get slammed, and FIYAH called down on me and all that. CHA!..anyway...it seemed LOGICAL to me to say that, since I beleive in the continuim called existence. YES, to me it was logical to say "I Was There", although I was trying to "lighten" the subject, to me there was a bit of truth. I belong to the existence of life - ALWAYS! Dejavu's aren't reserved for this existence, they occur over many lifetimes, some call them past lives. With my strict SDA upbringing, I find it STILL difficult to say, but reasonable.
Although I digress (too early in the a.m), I shouldn't call them past lives - we're simply living on different levels of the same life. ONE EXISTENCE. Neter!
There is a Sufi Phrase - "there are as many ways to god as there are breaths"...what think ye?
