We can only speculate; we can only assert; we can only say that we are the soul, immortal, imperishable; but, actually, that has no existence.Your thought as always.
You're gonna have to back up that claim China. Prove me that an immortal and imperishable soul has no existence.
This is not a very happy person, the balance is definitely on the 'negative' side, is that
an example of yourself china, cause it certainly doesn't fit the 'me', as in 'I'.
Is this a rhetorical question or do you want to hear how others view their individuality; or is this a nature vs nurture question?
I'm with s_lone on this one, China: you've hopelessly contradicted yourself yet again.
Do I have a soul in the sense that there's a part of myself that will go on following the death of my physical body? I freely admit I don't know. However, you affirmed the soul had no existence. You seem to be certain about this. How about explaining what makes you so certain about it?
I freely admit ,I don't know,
Hi Scott Free, thanks for your interest in the thread and the following post:
First of all this is not a question ;tha's just the way it is.Furthermore it's not that hard to reason it out for anyone (for most-anyhow) .
It is unwise to assume you "know" the truth on any matter
and especially on such a weighty one as this.
If, however, you are stating it in such strong terms to solicit strong arguments,
then I can understand your purpose.
Neither do I ....s_long.,this is what makes me so certain about this.I know a word for it in 4 languages ( probably more ,if I'll think hard) but I surely don't know what it is , but it doesn't mean there isn't one.Again this is what makes me so certain about this.Trust me I'm not talking nonsense .Dont judge ,ask questions.
Why ought we to trust you? Why oughtn't we judge? Man oh man, do those ever sound like the statements of a nascent cult lead
