In an earlier post, I explored What I feel is a more sensible application of Pascal's Wager to God's existence. Now I am attempting one founded in game theory. Goes like this: I like what someone said: I am an apatheist. But my version is: God does not need my belief to exist. This then… Continue reading A Game Theory take on the question of God’s Existence.
I seem to have found a significance for Anslem's proof. It may be that it is not significance for whether God might exist, but, as I have said, significance for how I present ideas. We will start with the rendition from Princeton's site. I think they have a pretty good rendition there. Without all the strict logical… Continue reading Anslem’s Argument for the Proof of the Existence of God, the Disruption of Time, and the Categorization of Philosophical Behavior.
It is an interesting excersize: The history of philosophical reductivim is written in the last half of history as a conflation of the Jewish 'unknown' and the Greek 'Logos', both of which are really the only types of 'oneness' we are capable of perceiving: a completely unknown element (Judaism) that communicates to humans as singular and specific… Continue reading The One God/ The God of One.

Where Science, Religion and Superstition meet; The Communicative Move.

I have been interacting through comments and replies with Dave, who writes the blog called "Big Story Guide". Our conversation is quite wonderful, so, just as I used our conversation… Continue reading The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.
They have sat down for dinner. The philosophers are at the first table, the conventional methodogists at another. The philosophers are having bread and water that are hardly distinguishable from prime rib and Cabernet Sauvignon, and they are having a wonderful time. The methodologists have the best of the house and their conversation revolves up… Continue reading Aphilosophy, Convention, Faith and God.
The dialectic, as I have said earlier, cannot be taken too seriously. For when it is, the break that has perspective finds the levity that brings the truth of the matter over the impending doom. Yet when things have become so serious, it is only because I have been presented with my self and the… Continue reading The Problem of the Dialectic: Convention, Reality and Irony.
