I understand, though. Sometimes when everyone on a message board disagrees with you on an issue, you start seeing the limits of the point of a message board run up against how time consuming it is to engage everybody.

But this is a board full of critical thinkers. The key takeaway here for you, Shaya, is that critical thinking is important, not just to do toward the things you don't believe, but also to the things you do believe. Even the most deeply held ones.


What a load of bullshit. There are over 2261 members on this discussion board and at best only about 15 of those members are actively involved in various threads. Of those 15 only about 10 people participate on a daily basis. when you say "everyone on a discussion board disagrees with you" just who the fuck do you think you're referring to? The same 5 assholes, kaliqua, vox, oshun, audioguy, kweli4fake, and part-time brother, that not only have already made their pact to categorically and unanimously agree and disagree on nearly every topic discussed on this discussion board, they've also agreed to back each other up whether right or wrong.

There may be some critical thinkers on this discussion board, vox, but you DEFINATELY are not one of them. Critical thinking can be defined as follows:

Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action. In its exemplary form, it is based on universal intellectual values that transcend subject matter divisions: clarity, accuracy, precision, consistency, relevance, sound evidence, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness.

In other words, topics on this discussion board should be dealt with in an unbiased, objective manner instead of resorting to childish, sandbox tactics such as nobody-likes-you and nobody-agrees-with-you bullshit and jumping on the bandwagon of popular opinion to be accepted. None of the above mentioned are capable of such a feat.

Think that's bad? There are those who have admitted posting, on at least the subject of religion, as putting folks on a petri dish or something like that. Reads "intelligent" of course, but still...

Oh yeah, then what is it then? In your humble opinion.

If I were to go, say, Romulus Burnett, up in here, though share the same or similar views as you, would I be considered...intelligent...critical thinking, in your humble opinion. Just your opinion.

Critical thinking, non critical thinking has been assessed here and on other forums, more times then not, with regard to what end of the rifle one is standing on. For example, it's critical thinking if I went RB on folks even though we agreed on somethings; but If I were looking down the barrow of RB's rifle loaded with disagreement, why then, it would be considered non critical thinking.

...Hmmm, reminds me of an ill-gotten lecture I received on the concept of logic, or the lack thereof. (Using) IMO (as a good luck charm to warn off evil rebuttal).

Because religion, of any kind, is not proprietary, Shay, my suggestion would be to engage what post you deem worth your engagement and let what you would consider not engaging (for whatever reason), sit idle. Even if this means letting evil have the last word.

For religion, like many other subjects, is one where folks will 'go there'. From what I've learned in a short time of my being a member, that religion is not taboo, over here.

We are all aware of that cliche, I'm sure. Heat...kitchen...get out...can't stand it if...something like that.

Sista Shaya, I hear you.

But please allow me an observation.

Above, you are assuming that the words in question actually possess a socially agreed upon univocal definition.

Moreover, you might even be assuming that those definitions remain constant across societies and religious traditions.

This is problematic.

ESPECIALLY when we are discussing things which resist easy conceptual formulation.

"Creator" for example.

In Buddhist traditions this term (used as you seem to mean it) is almost meaningless. There is no religious equivalent comparable to that found in the Judeo-Christian tradition.

This is not to say that you are wrong and I am right.

But if we wish to communicate and understand one another we must understand the limitations of our words, of our concepts, and ultimately of our understanding.

For example, personally, I am not moved by the thought of a "Creator" in the same way that you seem to be.

You refer to the "Creator" and * I * draw a blank.

I know approximately what you mean by it, but for various reasons, it does not have that meaning for me.

I'm not kidding you. Neither am I saying you are wrong to refer to a "Creator".

quote:

Even if I sought to define every word and quote every source up in here, it is pointless when dealing with individuals whose goal is only to argue their point as "right" versus considering that someone else may actually be "right" as well (even though their view may differ). EveryBody can share the stage.


I hear you there too.

It's this consideration which has made me more reluctant to participate regularly in the religion forum.

HowEver, when you take your own personal view off of the constructs and actually follow instructions on viewing what is finite and what is infinite, then you begin to see the point I am making, which is: the concepts of God/Goddess/Spirit are so very different from the construct of Man because a God/Goddess/Spirit can do things that man can not do.



But this very sentence is full of very human assumptions/constructs about the divine.

Why should the divine be in actuality as you imagine it to be?

Why should it be limited as you imagine it should be limited? (i.e., as being above certain human behaviors). The Old Testament alone is full of descriptions of God exhibiting very human mind states (being jealous, being wrathful, etc.).


quote:

Given that this may in fact be true, I was asking you to question the notion of a God entering one's body, only to end up taking upon actions that resembled the characteristics of human beings.


Why should the divine necessarily be conceived in opposition to the human?

quote:

That's simple. Why would a God/Goddess/Spirit who's infinite in its ability, limit itself to the finite on a regular basis?


That "a god or goddess would be infinite in its capability" is itself a human construct about the divine. So is the opposition to finitude.

Moreover, what would being infinite in capability entail?

WWJD

What Would Jesus Drive?

Maybe he likes Hondas.
Note to you condescending twerps.

WWJD is a comment made by Christians, for Christians, to Christians.

First of all if you don't actually CARE, or even KNOW what Jesus would do... Why ask?

Answer:

Because I'm a condescending jerk trying to prove a point that all Christians are raging hypocrites and that this mythical figure Jesus, who was a lunatic himself, would totally disapprove... not that I CARE what HE would approve of anyways, I mean... he's nothing/nobody to me.

So please

Oshun, HB,

STOP IT!!!
WWJD about What?

I don't think the conversation would go very far with some of you abnoxious anti-Christian fanatics. So... He would probably READ you before you even open your mouth... tell you something that would send you in to a fit of tears, and send you on with a comfortable blessing.


I mean COME ON!!! How many of you Buddhist are holding yourselves to your Buddhist standards. What about the rest of you?
IS EVERYONE HERE LIVING UP TO THERE RELIGOUS STANDARDS?

DO YOU EVEN HAVE STANDARDS?

Please don't make this about comparative morality, this is about the abnoxious inside joke WWJD.

You have a Christian (Kresge), a Muslim, a profane Buddhist, and an African traditionalist ...

Yeah... We're all up in agreement here.

Yet we're making a similar point. 19

Obviously the question has no real relevance since we're clearly just out to getcha ... Clearly there's some type of strange anti-Christian cult activity afoot...
Do I need to repeat the bottom line.

I could care less who's out to get who. That observation wasn't there to make you and others refrain from your obnoxious activity. You could probably find me being obnoxious right along with you. I have a clearly defined beef, please don't detract.

MY BEEF:

Stop with the WWJD?

In most traditional African religions possession is not demonic or evil, it is desired. It is proof of the correctness and the effectiveness of the religious rite being performed.

The discussion here reminds me of a saying I heard once, "Orthodoxy is my doxy, heterodoxy is the other fellows doxy".
part-time brother: How do you know I don't know anything about black greek organizations?

Well, for one thing, part-time brother, you and kalikwa keep referring to me as a gorilla, an ape, a monkey as if that was supposed to be an insult, first of all, and secondly, when I've already had a gorilla avatar all this time.

If you knew anything about black greek organizations you would know that Alpha Phi Alpha's mascott is a gorilla. Thanks for complimenting me every time you post the name of the mascott of my beloved fraternity.

If you knew anything about black greek organizations you would know black greek organizations are different from white honor societies in many ways--one being that black greek organizations have a collegiate as well as a graduate chapter where millions of college graduates such as myself join after having matriculated at their college or university of choice.

In black greek organizations brotherhood and sisterhood is forever. It doesn't dissolve or disappear after college life is over.

Yeah, we already know that you will make yet another prissy, sarcastic little comment but those comments don't make up for the fact that with every comment you make you prove more of your afrocentric ignorance and stupidity hence your screename: part-time brother.

I'm still struggling with how the concept of demonism worked it's way into Christian religous text.

It is believed that these demons are 'fallen angels'. How could these celestial beings make such a radical transformation?

If that isn't were they come from... then where? Did the Angel Satan manufacture them himself?

Maybe they could be the past spirits of people who lived evil lives.

Christianity I believe, comes up short relative to other religous explanations of the seperation between good and evil. It comes up short in that, it's not as explicit as the other faiths. There is an implicit mystery, which I've obviously not deciphered.
Heru (or anybody else), do you know whether the Bible refers to a "fallen angel" other than Satan? I thought it spoke of one devil who was responsible for the evil in the world. Are there others, or "lesser" demons or devils? You post above implies that it does, but does it?

Revelation 12:7-9

7)And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.
8)But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.
9)The great dragon was hurled down"”that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

The tradition is that Satan/Lucifer took a third of the company of angels with him when he was cast out of heaven.

Here are several reasons why nothing you've said has any relevance:


1. I HAVE NEVER EVER asked the question:

"How do you know I don't know anything about black greek organizations?"

2. In fact, I've already said and have no problems admitting that I don't know JACK SHIT about black Greek organizations ... except that your being a member of one makes me that much LESS interested in learning more ...

3. I have no need to mask ignorance about black Greek organizations with rhetorical questions because I quite simply don't care. I'm not impressed by them.

4. While you were pledging Greek ... I WAS LEARNING GREEK.

5. I care little about how you perceive my use of the "Gorilla" epithet ... since it is intended to express my contempt.

Like this question, MOST of the other questions you ascribe to me are similarly a figment of your imagination.

In fact, the only question on the list above that I have ACTUALLY asked was: "How do you know I don't care?" This question was in reference to WWJD. And the question was not rhetorical.

Though I may not subscribe to traditional Christian theology, the concept of "Christ likeness" is still one that is very much of interest to me. I would put the time I've spent in serious Bible study up against 90% of self professed Christians.

Earlier on this thread, I declined an invitation to pursue a religious controversy. Your response was to describe that action as ... how do you say? ... that of a "punk bitch". To the contrary, I would describe it as attempting to emulate "Christ-like" behavior.

Hence my question to you: Was Jesus a punk bitch? The question was not meant rhetorically.

You've yet to answer it. Point blank: I have a hard time imagining you not considering almost any sort of Christ-like behavior as "effeminate" in a pejorative sense.
I didn't even read that bullshit you posted, part-time brother, because I'm not going to waste my time reading all that moot trash. The point is, you needed to be schooled on the culture of blackgreek organizations you out of touch saltine cracker. Nothing you have learned in whatever institution is exclusive to you. It is a matter of choice.

However, seeing as you're sitting there like a fucking clueless idiot patting yourself on the back for being a member of some honky ass, dime a dozen, open to the general public honor society you needed to be corrected after being allowed to bask in your futile ignorance, your afrocentric ineptitude, thinking that black greek life only existed in the college arena. Don't fucking lie you pathetic worm because you're actually dumb enough to sit there behind your cheap ass computer, call yourself being a faculty member of a state college and actually think grown black men and women were trying to re-live their college days when they were members of their college chapters.

If you've ever worked at an HBCU you would have run into many co-workers that are members of graduate chapters of their prospective greek organizations. But you wouldn't know that because you're afraid to socialize with black co-workers you introverted misfit. The fact that you're afraid to socialize with adults of your own race is indicative of your paralyzing feelings of inadequacy and inferiority. You don't need to be going around on an afrocentric discussion board anywhere in cyberspace thinking it's something monumental to have been a member of a white honor society and you don't know shit about black greek organizations.

You're a walking, oxymoronic, hypocritical, human anomoly--a frightened little white girl in a grown black man's body. I can see the little bitch behind the twinkle in your eye. Your life is plastered with urges to be white yet you come off in here like you want to be black so bad yet you're afraid of being black and even afraid of other black people. What's really sad is you try to overcompensate for being afrocentrically deficient by--what--projecting your so-called Eurocentric superiority? Come on boy who are you trying to fool? There's nothing you've accomplished that I myself haven't already accomplished and currently surpassing. I've graduated from predominately black HBCU's and white universities and cared less about geek ass honor societies. And, apparently, graduating from an ivy leaque college hasn't been to your advantage or you wouldn't be sitting in the middle of nowhere in the woods of country ass Kentucky, whereas, I'm heading to South Beach to soak up some rays and fight off some women.

I also don't feel the need to rub other people's noses in it.

If anyone feels inadequate it is you.

Otherwise you wouldn't spend so much time needlessly insulting people ... and calling it being an individual going against the crowd.

It would seem that this distinction belongs to me.

The only thing exceptional and remarkably individual about you is your ability to be disagreeable.

There's nothing you've accomplished that I myself haven't already accomplished and currently surpassing.



See my comments above about coursework.

You getting an Ed.D.?

Who are you kidding?

I'm not knocking it.

But an Ed.D.? From Alabama A & M?

Nevermind ...

Who am I to knock a brotha trying to make something of his life?
