allegro63 responding to My inside voice – Yes, I believe Jesus is divine, Jesus and God are one in the same. I, of course can’t prove it.
I would say that you can prove it.
Jesus and God are one and the same. As are we. Though, we are a tangled mess of confused identity. Jesus knows that he is God 100%. Crucifixion is what the world does to us. He passes through unfazed. Shows us how by his own being.
If not divine, what then? A meaningless bag of chemicals?
Steve Greene – “If not divine, what then? A meaningless bag of chemicals?”
Otherwise known as: False dichotomy.
What is false about it?
We haven’t really come to any consensus about the term “divine” yet.
Steve Greene – Are you trying to say you’ve never heard of the fallacy of false dichotomy? Seriously?
So then, “divine” or “sacred” represent a sufficiently acceptable and possible quality
I have wrongly placed this in exclusive opposition to “meaninglessness”?
My apologies. But we are obviously playing this game by different rules. I thought it made sense. At least to my satisfaction.
I suppose I could have substituted “meaningful”; But from what I gather from these conversations, even this quality can not be considered to apply; The reality that science describes, being devoid of it.
