How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    A work colleague told me about it.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Music, History, Psychology, Philosophy, Science, General Truth Seeker.
  • My favorite books
    The Bible of course, 1984 & Brave New World (2 favourite fictional) Too many non fiction books to list. I prefer factual information.
  • My favorite music
    The Beatles, VNV Nation, Nirvana, Oasis, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan & many, many more. These are only the first few bands to come to mind but far too many to list and I find it very difficult to have favourites because it depends so much on my mood. I love music of all kinds and from all different time periods. One of Jehovah's greatest gifts in my opinion.
  • My favorite movies
    Matrix Trilogy is definitely up there but, again, too many good ones to list them all.
  • My favorite quotes
    "There's nothing you can know that isn't known."
    John Lennon.
    "I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not."
    Kurt Cobain.

  1. Food for thought. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/609232/the-surgeon-who-wants-to-connect-you-to-the-internet-with-a-brain-implant/
  2. Yours is a great banner quote, Thike. I like it.

     

    You may like this one from Max Planck, or even have heard it already. “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”

  7. What do you think of this guy's voice? I think it's great
  8. I suppose the senses do produce a form of illusion in a sense. Think about it. One example that quickly comes to mind is the fact that when we zoom in far enough on material things, they mainly consist of empty space, yet to our senses they are so solid. Our perceptions are only truthful in a very relative sense it would seem. To be human is to be extremely limited. To be human is to be biased, with our relative perspectives of the absolute truth.
  9. The allegory of the cave.

    Brexit Ramifications

    I've been thinking for a few years now that Johnson will be prime minister one day but I still don't believe Trump will be president. I've said for years Clinton is going to be president. Let's see what happens. Interesting times ahead.
  11. I am aware of what encouragement entails. What I want to know is, what are the REASONS that encouragement is needed? It seems to me that encouragement is simply reminding a fellow believer of the facts which are already known. Why is this needed? When we are feeling down does our memory fail us? Do we need convincing of Jehovah's love all over again? Does our faith diminish? Does our hope diminish? Does our knowledge become suspect? Why does repetition of already (supposedly) known truths lift our spirits? I am honestly seeking an explanation.
  12. You didn't answer my question.
  13. Why do people need encouragement? Why does repeating known facts over and over raise most peoples' spirits when they are feeling down? Is it to do with a need to know that someone else understands (identifies with) how they feel? It seems to me that it is a need to feel cared about by other human beings rather than a need to be reminded of known facts. (example: Jehovah's mercy, forgiveness, love etc etc etc). What do you think?
