We had planned on it tonight for the Church, but with folks traveling so far for it, we had to cancel for the treacherous weather. Thanks!

Comment on Faith Based Atheism by johnson http://illusiveshadows.org/2013/01/faith-based-atheism/#comment-16 Thu, 10 Jan 2013 14:29:22 +0000 http://illusiveshadows.org/?p=292#comment-16 It was actually based on a real conversation. As atheists go, I think he may not have been the brightest. I was actually hoping a more thoughtful atheist might read this and leave some comments that better portray that viewpoint.

Comment on What it Means to Know, or Gnosis is not a Spectator Sport by Arthur Turbyfill http://illusiveshadows.org/2012/12/what-it-means-to-know-or-gnosis-is-not-a-spectator-sport/#comment-14 Wed, 19 Dec 2012 11:24:58 +0000 http://illusiveshadows.org/?p=171#comment-14 I appreciate the approach you take here. The analogy of the “bag of sugar” is a nice one. This point could also lead to other, broader, deeper considerations of things such as “reality,” “actuality,” and our perceptions of the universe in general.

Comment on Us and Them by Gary http://illusiveshadows.org/2012/12/us-and-them/#comment-11 Wed, 12 Dec 2012 15:16:15 +0000 http://illusiveshadows.org/?p=46#comment-11 A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Einstein
