    This brings to mind that macabre shit in the news lately about a brain-dead girl's parents feeding her corpse & keeping it on a ventilator.
    Their belief that a diety will miraculously reanimate their kid isn't going to slow the natural process of decomposition- it's already occurring.

    btw my op is in lieu of who came up with the concept of time. I know we don't know, but I want to know the truth and I hope one day it's figured out. And I don't mean religious beliefs, I mean stuff that can be quantified.

    It doesn't matter what you believe. The truth always reveals itself.

    the starry heavens above me and
    the moral law within me.

    The truth is often overrated and a matter of perception in the end. The only reason we perceive the sky being blue is coz we agreed to call the human perception of that sky blue (I doubt that birds with their UV vision would agree if they could talk, and I doubt dogs would believe us since they just perceive black and white). In truth it is made up of all colours; what we agreed to call blue just happens to be the ones that shines through due to the way the light hits our atmosphere.

    To me personally, there are more important things in the world than arguing the colour of the sky and fighting over whose perception is more accurate.

    I don't expect theology to tell me much about electron energy states.

    I don't expect hard science to tell me much about spiritual issues.

    There is a physical phenomenon irrespective of perception that generates a sensory experience of "blue" across a wide spectrum of peoples. Yes, that we call it "blue" is subject to experience, but this does not undermine the physical phenomenon itself.

    There is nothing more important to ensuring the freedom and happiness of all peoples than challenging held beliefs.

    The hues you see in the sky can be distinct from the hues another person sees. Truth is not perception (nor is it the senses), it can't be. If it is, you will always be deceived and in conflict because the data will always vary.

    Truth is consistent. In the end, truth is located within itself and can only be found in itself.

    The same is true for perceptions. They get often heralded as 'The Truth' just as often as someone's beliefs.

    Time to stop annoying off T-users, I suppose.
