here is half
    #488116 - 10/15/10 12:11 AM (7 years, 7 months ago)

of a converation. it began with relating to a friend a conversation with some jehova's witnesses this afternoon. one lady brought up the analogy of a diamond within a pile of cubic zirconium in relation to finding complete truth.


once you have that diamond there is no longer any reason to search through the pile because you've found the diamond
but then
you didn't place that diamond there
for all you know there could be dozens more diamonds in that pile
and youll never know unless you keep searching

exactly man. its the same reason everytime i think ive found what im looking for i keep searching. its hard to settle for truth. i spent 17 years in a southern baptist church thinking i had it.

being told you had it

its just crazy going from having it to not at all
the struggle is coming to terms with realizing youll never have it ALL i think

there is no struggle, there is only release
like realizing that you don't have to completely know
that living life in complete wonderment is all right
live well
do good
don't be afraid
not much else matters really
they're semantics
if there is a god
he's infinitely more complex than our minds could possibly comprehend
to pretend as though you know is extremely audacious
as thomas jeferson said
question everything with boldness
if there is a god, then surely he would respect the homage of reason over that of blind faith
ive been leaning towards the blind watchmaker
htat if there was a creator then he only set the ball in motion
and has no active part in this universe

been reading richard dawkins?

whatever force governed the initial mathematics of our universe has no hand in its continuity
actually no
never read anything by dawkins
i think he's kind of a cocky douche
i respect him very much
but i think he's a bit close minded

haha he is definitley. but the god delusion is good.
taken from an opened minded perspective that i didnt have when i originally read it
it just made me a douche

thats one major thing to be so weary of
when reading an enlightening text
you feel a profound sense of understanfding
but its relative
im reaching out now
this is the point where im digging beyond my own limits
not limit
i dont know
no solid foundation

its hard man. trying to be reasonable when you think youve found the answer.

relinquish the thought of having the answer
once you have it, you're no longer searching

it took me like three years to realize that man. im finally getting to be the atheist that isnt a douche about it haha.

right on
now try to be the macophile that isnt a douche about it
like thats even possible
i mean
i am
its werid
i love mac
but i hate defending any top dog
ive always found myself defending points of view that are obviously wrong
but i just feel that somebody needs to do it
and sometimes it sjust a test of wit
when i speak i know exactly what the other could say to completely refute my argument
im kind of just waiting for them to do it
but it doesnt happen
so i end up kind of douching i spose

i mean, you guys being such an insignificant part of my life.. for some reason i felt i should share this with you.

IT'S ALL LIES!!! there is no such thing as ________!!!!
