Philosophy is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat.
Metaphysics is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn’t there.
Theology is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn’t there and shouting, “I’ve found it!”
Science is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat using a flashlight.
as i get older, i realize that the universe is rather indifferent to the sufferings of mankind. that there isn’t any real justice evident in the world around us. my only hope is that people are so predisposed to ideas of justice and compassion that in the long run we strive for such ideals. but history leaves me wondering if this is a dream.
it is an action movie
a very jewish movie
somewhat dark and broody.
G.D is only the Creator, mostly silent, demanding obedience
that is one way the movie is surprisingly accurate.
Noah knew only the Creator, through his experience of obeying an outwardly foolish command-build the ark- both he and we learn something of God’s justice and redemption. and the movie is about that human learning about forgiveness and hope in the midst of anger pain and hopelessness.
i was asked if the noahic flood happened—-to which i replied
….i’m really confident that there was no world wide flood. there is no evidence for it and a great deal against it.
if the noahic flood has an historical basis it is as a dim memory of some huge flood in the mesopotamian area,
could it have been the filling of the black sea? maybe, i don’t know nor do i care very much if it is historical.
God gives us the account as a great example of faithfulness and redemption and human frailties, the story after all ends with noah drunk and the fateful hametic curse which has so plagued southern american history .
i watch what Answers in Genesis and what Ken Ham et al preach. and i have read their books since _the Genesis Flood_. i wrote this in an email a little while ago concerning them….
they are completely lost in their system unable to admit “i could be wrong”
arrogant, self centered, both theologically and historically (and scientifically) ignorant.
who will drive millions from even thinking about the Scriptures or considering the truthfulness of the Church’s testimony to God.
they embody many of the worst characteristics of modern conservative American thought.
Switzerland has remained a neutral country for a long time and has not been at war since 1815. Considering the nature of man this is an incredible feat and historians have long sought the answer as to how a single country could remain untouched by the world for so long. It turns out the Swiss had a unique solution. In 1814 an assessment was made of all the people of the country who were inclined to go to war. Switzerland then invented the country of Liechtenstein to house all of the aggressive people. This has kept Switzerland at peace for nearly 200 years and Liechtenstein, being so small, has not been able to cause any trouble in all that time too. Every year assessments are made of the Swiss population and as a result there are several immigrations from Switzerland to Liechtenstein. No one has ever immigrated from Liechtenstein to Switzerland.

the metaphor of the spiritual journey as climbing a mountain is both very common and maybe even useful.
i’ve laughed at the one where scientists take 100′s of years to climb their mountain to find the theologians already arguing at the top.(1st comment)
i’ve read dozens of sermons whose main metaphor has been the single mountain and that all paths either do or do not lead to the top. but i think this panel says it best.
we all need good friends.
