    Is a belief only false if it can be disproven? If two people are having a conversation, and say person A. states "I am GOD" and uses logic and reasoning to ascertain his claim, and the listener B. can not disprove the persons logic, technially the belief is not false according to person B? No matter how crazy or unlikely the claim appears to be? Now if person A. made the same unlikely claim to another listener C, and uses the same logic and reasoning, but listener C can poke holes and disprove the logic person C. can say person A has false beliefs right? Is the smartest person the only sane person? Does it seem like I may have a low IQ?

    I'm 25 and thinking about what am I trying to achieve?

    I'm 25 and thinking about what am I trying to achieve? You watch things on TV and Youtube which makes thing appear sensational, like something really great and important has happened, but we all die in very, VERY short time (considering how long this universe will go on), and nothing really matters. It's only if you choose to engage in it and deliberately avoid thinking about it that it seems like these things matter. So what do I do?

  • Why is life all lies?

    Best answer: I would not say life is all lies, but it is never completely or absolutely in the human experience what life really is. The fact is nothing in the human experience can ever be absolute or full: our knowledge is incomplete and, therefore, so is our understanding, our actions are never perfect, and therefore, our... show more
    Best answer: I would not say life is all lies, but it is never completely or absolutely in the human experience what life really is. The fact is nothing in the human experience can ever be absolute or full: our knowledge is incomplete and, therefore, so is our understanding, our actions are never perfect, and therefore, our dream, desires, and ambitions remain partially fulfilled, so much so that even our wrongs, our faults, our errors and mistakes are only partially so. If you search for a life without lies, then you want a life that is all truth and nothing but the truth, but then you do not have the capacity or the ability to live that truthfully, no human being has.

    When we seek to become better human being, as for instance, by gaining better knowledge and deepening our understanding through experience, by learning to become better relations, as for instance, through acts of generosity, kindness and love, we eliminate lies and eradicate falsehood from our life, we capacitate ourselves, and become able to acknowledge and accept greater degrees of truthfulness.

    We ask, what is life? What is the purpose of us being alive? We know this and often contemplate on the nature of our existential experience. We know one day we will die. Sometimes, we think life is meaningless; we think life is just a freak accident and we the outcome; then we feel it is all a big lie, a simulation so deep and complex that the true nature of it for us is unfathomable.

    We all have our moments of doubt, bouts of consternation, and unsettling thoughts, but we manage nevertheless, we live on. We do so as most of us find faith, in each other through love and compassion, in life through our wonderful ability to believe in the supreme being I one form or the other. The ultimate human capacity to take accept the truth does not come with knowledge or understanding, but through faith – the truth at the centre of our being.

  • Are people generally rational or irrational?

    I rationalize a lot, basically everything. I know it's not a good thing, but it it serves me well at times. However, generally, in everyday life, I hardly ever stumble upon a person who I could say that is rational. Not to even mention if I'd try to get into philosophy, especially given my age (21).

    I rationalize a lot, basically everything. I know it's not a good thing, but it it serves me well at times. However, generally, in everyday life, I hardly ever stumble upon a person who I could say that is rational. Not to even mention if I'd try to get into philosophy, especially given my age (21). No matter how rational an argument I make, it gets thrown out the window because "I'm too young" or something. The problem is that I'm very much into philosophy and psychology, and these situations leave me either being rational with people, OR saying what people want to hear in order to get the result I want. However, that's manipulation and I'm not okay with that. I'd much rather be honest, but that doesn't seem to get me anywhere except make people hate me. Also sooner or later people find out what I'm doing, because even tho I'm saying the things they want to hear, I don't actually mean it, so the things I say and my actions don't match at all. E.g. telling people that I want to go out, have fun, make friends, find a partner etc. and then spending the weekends alone not even responding messages. Or even worse, going out and sitting in the corner watching videos on my phone while everyone else is dancing and stuff.

  • I'm afraid of being enlightened because I might do something I don't want to?

    From what I've read online and heard people say, enlightenment is a blissful state in which worry, doubt, anger and hatred all dissipate. However, if you truly become fearless and without worry surely that could set up danger for an early death? If you're not afraid of anything, couldn't that mean you... show more
