Can we ever agree ?..I don't think so !
« on: 02/08/2004 03:14:59 »
If a principal subject is so complicated, with variations in definition, with so many facets, and differing methods of interpretation, so convoluted in nature , with numerous overlapping opinions and meanings….how on earth can a stable model of such topic be ratified ?

I suppose this query is fuelled by the ‘god poll’ and I have always thought that there will NEVER be a Utopia……I just simply can not imagine it.

Is it that for some people that ,it is crucial to sway us to their belief ? and for others, it is the actual debate itself, that is the crucial element.....I think it is our very nature to disagree (and agree)...I suppose that's part of sentience eh ?....but I reckon it's that nature of ours that will be responsible for our downfall, ultimately the cockroaches will inherit the Earth.

I know knowledge helps us to understand, and that, that understanding often leads to further questions and though we don’t know the true nature of the Universe and ‘ God’…I suppose the fact that we feel compelled to discuss these topics helps us to understand them , or maybe, to put it another way, it helps us to familiarise ourselves with the topic and so lead to clarity in the ability to discuss and debate.

The God thing I think generates so much debate that sometimes I feel that it’s all pointless, I mean, does anyone actually think that one day there will be a harmonious belief that we’ll all believe the same thing ?..I don’t……what I do hope is that one day there will be a harmonious belief that we’ll all just get along fine despite our differing beliefs, creeds and ethnicity and affiliations etc etc

Anyway...I seem to have digressed....getting back to my original point, how can there ever be an all encompassing agreement on a topic that is so complicated ?

Anyway...it's hot..I'm tired.. it's late...I'm off to bed !!

...there you go...everything is relative is it not ?, makes concurrence awkward I suspect.
