Always been interested in what makes humans do what they do. Early life (teens) looked into metaphysics (as I think all teenagers do!), twenties and thirties followed my dream and became a musician while also studied philosophy/religions, forties onward engaged in the corporate world with a break to achieve a Bachelors degree in Religious Studies. The degree opened further insight into the human condition (what we do, why we do it, how and why do we search for meaning and identity and much more). Lifelong study of classic literature. Absolutely no practical attributes whatsoever other than can cook a bit. Car mechanics, carpentry and housework are a total mystery and an area that I need to apply myself, but am far too lazy

How important are rituals to you? How do you feel about rituals? Perhaps you don't engage in rituals...
Geoffrey51 comments on Jul 13, 2019:
The way that I understand it ritual is a way of maintaining order whether it be religious, personal or ceremonial. There is a thin line between ritual and obsession, however. An illustrative example is Roman religion. They didn’t care which religion any individual embraced so long as they paid tribute, such as burning incense to the gods. If the gods were not acknowledged disaster would ensue. This is the reason Christianity was considered subversive. To the Roman’s it was just another Jewish Messianic sect, but to not praise the gods was unthinkable!

Geoffrey51 comments on Jul 13, 2019:
Labels don’t make a person! From my experience many religions and the atheist position are trying to sell something. I understand the religious product but not the atheist. Both positions open debate which provides an intellectual exercise in critical thinking. Right or wrong is irrelevant unless you want to sell your product. It’s an intellectual tragedy when one argument must be right or wrong. This isn’t agnostic disinterest. It’s enabling a position within the debate without the investment in an outcome.

Geoffrey51 comments on Jul 11, 2019:
Soul is a complicated concept and mostly related in a misleading Christian context but the discussion begins with Plato and Aristotle. To Plato the soul was a seperate part of the being which went to another realm at death. For Aristotle it was the animating principle of a being and disintegrated at death. The idea that is observable is the Aristotlean view as we can see the destruction of the mind and body as an empirical fact. We cannot observe a realm for the soul so Plato, from an observable viewpoint must take a back seat. We do not, however, know what future advances may be made in this exploration so Aristotle is the ascendant idea with Plato awaiting further research

The physicist here is pointing out that no evidence doesn’t mean no existence, just that the hypothesis has not been proven one way or the other.

You know, before all of the new age religions and beliefs, there had to have been a "seed" or "root"...
Geoffrey51 comments on Jul 9, 2019:
Not strictly correct. Indigenous religions all have a similar thread, mainly attempting to explain in metaphor the aspects of the world they didn’t understand, but presented in wildly different ways. It’s misleading to presume that Abrahamic religions have a continuum with these ideas as Abram was part of an idol worshipping culture. A new brand of monotheistic religion is developed and codified as a rebuttal of idol worship. Monotheistic religion is a ‘new’ invention not an adaptation or evolution. See Akhenaten as a Bronze Age prototypical advocate of monotheism.
