Re: Lucid Dreamers and God

Those funny moments in life when Freud hangs you out to dry and you tell someone you are reading "Charles Dawkins". :lol:

I know some here will get a laugh. ;)

Re: Lucid Dreamers and God

Only a weird, sadomasochistic psychopath wouldn't wish for a perfect world. The answer to this question is a simple one, and there is no room for quasi-humorous, guerrilla wriggling. And there are those pseudo-intellectuals who, to make themselves out to have unique, radical, or interesting perspec...

I'm confused about why you think this world should be perfect?

I guess the same God who forgot to fill all of space with breathable air so we could fly to new worlds without fear of suffocation. :roll:

Re: Lucid Dreamers and God

It is difficult to discern whether that's a serious argument or you're just joshing with me. Totally joking if not poking you in the ribs with it due to the irony. :lol: I still disagree and put the primal basic nature of life as being selfish. Consider the nature of the entomological world, for ex...

Re: Lucid Dreamers and God

That doesn't mean, of course, that an organism is by definition egocentric. That's pure absurdity.


Well, can you reason out the need people have for a personal deity if they if they are not inherently selfish? :lol:

Re: Lucid Dreamers and God

So with a lot of weekend travel I had time to listen to the online version of the Selfish gene . Since you obviously like to simply twist my words to mean what you want them to say, as you did with my comment about symbiotic relationship of bacteria in the gut, I'll just say Dawkins doesn't back up ...

Re: Lucid Dreamers and God

In other words, the gene "aims" (or perhaps "is aimed") to create prime conditions for its own replication. Doesn't it make more sense to say the genes which provided the traits which increased the likelihood for individuals to survive and reproduce are the ones which get passed...

Re: Lucid Dreamers and God

But from what you are saying you imply the gene itself is making some sort of intelligent decision. All genes do is pass on expressed traits. If those trails allow you to reproduce the trait can be carried forward and influence another generation but your description sounds like a anthropomorphism o...
