lot belief-2

Do you have a soul? This time the answer is yes. From the definitions we have found that it is a feeling of conscious thought.
Being aware of the world around you and your existence “I think therefore I am” Rena De Carte from cannot be separated from me, therefore, I exist (Discourse on the Method and Principles of Philosophy). Most famously, this is known as cogito ergo sum (English: "I think, therefore I am"). Therefore, Descartes concluded, if he doubted, then something or someone must be doing the doubting; therefore the very fact that he doubted proved his existence. "The simple meaning of the phrase is that if one is skeptical of existence, that is in and of itself proof that he does exist."

This may seem like a lot of work for nothing, but nothing exists.  Take a look at this picture of a water molecule. Those little round balls are made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.  Now look at what is between them an empty space of nothing.

 Guess what? That water molecule may have at one point in time passed through you or been part of you. That is really wonderful just think you and me and all the persons anywhere and everything that exist, have sheared something in common.  Now this may be a little deep and I am sure you are saying what the heck this has to do with the soul.  First off it is information, knowledge of existence, a thought of conscious existence.

What if I said you could see your soul? Maybe you can and have, but did not know what you were looking at. Now this may seem crazy, but give it a try and think about what you see. Go outside and look at the sun with your eyes closed. Is this what you see?

Now go into a dark room or put on a blindfold and close your eyes do you still see the same thing? Look at this picture does it look familiar?

Do you remember your birth?  What did you see? Does this look familiar or similar?

It is a picture of the birth canal.
There is a lot to think about here and I will let you think on it. And it would be nice if you could add your thoughts. I doubt that you can get any weirder, and besides you may open a new door to the world of understanding. Thank you and god bless

lot belief-1

 Do you have a soul? First answer is no, as per the rule of this exercise. When a living animal dies, the body decays and turns in to dust. This statement does not give us an answer. So what is a soul? From the dictionary “nonphysical aspect of person, the complex of human attributes that manifests as consciousness, thought, feeling, and will, regarded as distinct from the physical body.”

 From “A soul, in certain spiritual, philosophical, and psychological traditions, is the incorporeal essence of a person or living thing or object.[1]Many philosophical and spiritual systems teach that humans are souls; some attribute souls to all living things and even to inanimate objects (such as rivers); this belief is commonly called animism.[2] In some schools of thought, such as Dualism, the soul is deemed integral or essential to consciousness and personality. Soul sometimes functions as a synonym for spirit, mind or self.[3] Other common philosophical positions such as Physicalism and reductionism deem the soul to be an incoherent concept and reject the idea of an incorporeal entity or essence.”

“Nonphysical aspects”, so the image of the rocks or the ameba in the picture here could be the soul of them but they are not human. Ok “consciousness” can or does a rock or an ameba know they are what they are? 

At first I would say no, but one or the other or both may post a comment here, I don’t know. We will have to wait and see.  From a totally abstract view and the lack of any scientific proof that there is no soul bring us back to the question.  So the answer to the “do you have a soul?” has to be yes. Now what did you write down to the question? What do you think of when you hear the word soul?

Tomorrow we take the yes side and see what we can find out.
Thank you and god bless

lot belief

What do you believe that is the question?

 Do you have a soul? Is there a god? Is the world flat? Did a man go to the moon? Are there ghosts? Does big foot exist? Are we the only living being in the universe?

What is belief?
Belief is “acceptance by the mind that something is true or real, often underpinned by an emotional or spiritual sense of certainty” from a dictionary. Wow! Now that opens up more questions. What is the mind? What is true? What is real? What is emotional? What is spiritual? What is certainty?

An Experiment
Just for the fun of it take and read the first set of questions again and answer each with the word “no” write the answers down somewhere. Then do it again this time answer “yes”. Was there a change? What changed?
Take one of the first questions and in the comments leave your thoughts on the question. Don’t be shy write all you would like to on one question. The comments are open to all, no cipher to post a comment.  For the next week I will see if I /we can come up with the best answer to each. This should be fun and interesting.  

 Tomorrow I will address the first one “do you have a soul”. 
Thank you and god bless

lot of rights

There has been a question about human rights. And the rights that are fundamental.  Every living thing as well as the planet that we live on have this first right and most basic is to exist. We do not normally think of rocks as being alive. The fact that a rock exist means that it has a life be it very long lived. The next right is the right to not exist. Two quantity of matter cannot share the same existence in space at the same time.  
Moving up the food chain we have the amoeba. Does the amoeba have more right then a rock? They are alive and live off the rocks. A rock must die for amoeba to live.
study the picture they all most look human

The next step up is plants. They too have the same rights. Plants live off the rocks and amoebas. Next we have animals. Animals have the same rights, and live off rocks, amoebas, and plants. All animals have another right, and that is self preservation but that just goes back to the first right.  Now there is one animal that exercise its right not to exist, and that is a lemming.

Man is the only animal that cannot live without trying to change these basic laws that cannot be changed. Man has made laws to defend a person right to live. There are men who have made laws to tell a person how to live and where to live. When a man murders people and plans to kill more, what is to be done with him? There are very few who have not heard the story of Jesus Christ. He was publicly killed. He did not kill anyone. It is claimed that he brought some back to life.  No one came to his aid. Now there are people who claim that a mass murder deserves to be tried in a court of law. If anything bin laden was more of an anti Christ. He sure was not a Christ. Give what we know of him, what would do if you were the one holding the gun your finger on the trigger? He did not think about the live he was taking. Why should we?  I think he got far better the he deserved.  If it were me I would not have killed him, but would defiantly wound him and then I would take him for a ride to the cauldron of the nearest active volcano and I would be nice from 40000 feet I would give him a parachute and one of his smart weapon vests just in case he runs into a problem, sorry if it has a big hole in it, I did have to dress his wound, and wish him a happy landing.  
So this is what I think. You have the right to have a different view.    
 Thank you and god bless

lot won't bite

Just what to do
Something new
Shall I wait for you?
Well that is something to do

But that is old
Well so am I
I want something new
Well I might try a fly

Now here is an idea
It just might be
Its bright you see
Silver with white and red

Just dance it pass your head
Now get out of that bed
Laying in that moss
They might think you’re dead

I see this is going to be a battle
How about an egg or two
I guess that won’t do
Just take a bite

What this
Some kind of prank
Have to use a lot of crank
This is not fair, that is an old shoe.

thank you and god bless

A joyful world

May first 2011 a joyful noise is heard around the world. The death of the terrorists Osama Bin Laden, may the devil have an orgy with his soul. In my 65 years I have seen many moments in history that have had an impact on my life and the world. April 19th 1775, December 7th 1941, August 9th 1945, November 22th 1963, September 11th 2001, May 1st 2011 dates in time that are remembered, where were you? I try hard not to have distain for anyone or thing. But it gives me great joy to know that an evil has been destroyed. Too see the people of the east finding the will to end the oppression of human rights and too find freedom.
The shot heard round the world has found its mark. May 1st 2011. A poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those spirits dare,
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.

Thank you and God Bless

lot May

Lot May
I don’t know but years ago when I was a wee lad. There were some things that we did on May first. One had to do with a basket. In school we made them out of strips of colored paper and make flowers out of crepe paper and sometimes we would put in cookies and candy in them.  Then you were supposed to put the basket of some ones door step and ring the bell or nock then run away. If you got caught you would have to give the person that caught you a kiss.   And There was this pole the one with all the ribbons on it. We would dance around it till all the ribbons were wound around the pole.  There were picnics in the park and a parade with all kind of fun costumes. And the games like a sack race, three legged race.  It was called May day. Well I guess we have all grown up and forgot how to have all the fun of May Day
Just a memory, thank you and have a marry May Day. God bless
