Take that as a sign of victory if you want. They referred to Tao Te Ching and other Taoist sources, but did so quite liberally, with interpretations that sometimes got very far from the texts they leaned on.

If we ask why Hindus believe that this is a true account of the facts of human existence.. as a factor additional to its physical genetic inheritance. desires. It is in the peculiar way in which they both occupy themselves with God that the distinction comes out. The Patriarch is the head of the religion and is the most powerful human. One of them being, that the universe, with all its component parts, is found fit for the existence of man and things; secondly, that which is found suitable in all its parts, for a single purpose, leading to a single goal, is necessarily a created thing.

Are there many beings distinct in their reality, with one Supreme Being, God at the summit of the hierarchy; or is there but one reality (monas, hence monism ), one All-God (pan-theos) of whom each individual is but a member or fragment (Substantialistic Pantheism ), or else a force, or energy (Dynamic Pantheism )? Under the influence of Enlightenment values, liberals have long argued for secular societies, but are they really possible?

One can rationalize whatever one wants by grabbing philosophical categories and then taking beliefs not philosophically defended as true and then with those ungrounded beliefs in play have the philosophical categories look like they support your conclusion. Photographic frames are actually nothing but instantiations of what are called “cognitive schemas” elsewhere in these blogs: schemas that help organize what you see; that let out what is unimportant; and bring to the foreground what is relevant for you.

Huxley in reviewing Hume’s philosophy regarding the interfacing of soul and body stated, “If, as has been set forth in the preceding chapter, all mental states are effects of physical causes, it follows that what are called mental faculties and operations are, properly speaking, cerebral functions, allotted to definite, though not yet precisely assignable, parts of the brain.” David Hume, in Essays, ed.

Hence, religion has become an object of intensive investigation and God is perforce identified as an idea that occurs within this complex phenomenon of religion.

Their great fault is the compromising of fact, bending it to a preconceived explanation or theory assumed a priori, whereas the observation of the fact ought to precede the assignment of its cause or of its adequate reason. Chap. and others suggest that no such intelligence can be at work. we shall have to think instead of an experienced situation that points unambiguously to the reality of God. it is less difficult to say what would verify the more specific claims of such a religion as Christianity.

Proposals may also detail a proposed table of contents and explain the rationale behind it. The same is surely true for religion, and it is well that it is so. The philosophy department is thrilled to announce a successful conclusion to the new classics position. I hold it true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed. (Albert Einstein, 1954) Experiments on interference made with particle rays have given brilliant proof that the wave character of the phenomena of motion as assumed by the theory does, really, correspond to the facts. (Albert Einstein, 1954) de Broglie conceived an electron revolving about the atomic nucleus as being connected with a hypothetical wave train, and made intelligible to some extent the discrete character of Bohr's 'permitted' paths by the stationary (standing) character of the corresponding waves. (Albert Einstein, 1954) How can one assign a discrete succession of energy values E to a system specified in the sense of classical mechanics (the energy function is a given function of the co-ordinates x and the corresponding momenta mv)?
