    I used the search function for New Scientist but that article does not appear. Our minds work outside causal reality? WTF? I would like to know what makes you think so. Even it were so and i in know way concede it is so, it does not follow or establish that there are gods, irrespective of whether those imagined entities operate causally. Btw there is some recent progress underway scientifically in terms of understanding consciousness. I aint got the link and am too lazy to get it now. Religion has an explanation you say. So what? How is that even on a par with a hypothesis? Anybody can make up nonsense but the conception does not equate with the assertion. At least you said something that is  not about harlots and insane mythology but you have demonstrated more an IQ of 16.4 than 164.

    You have to see the latest addition, in the bookstores.

    I side stepped your question for current events. But I go back to the original manuscript and translate word for word with a interlinear. Next you must confirm that the prophecies come true. The mosaic test of a prophet is that what he says must come true or that prophet is put to death.

    “Yeah, i have read about that council, other councils and about precursors. That is not what i am asking you. Step outside your comfort zone and answer me…CONCEPTUALLY, why is there any validity to any of it? Again a text can not authenticate itself. Is there any rational reason to believe that what has been handed down whether in its original version(s) or modified has any validity?”

    From a scientific point of view, please read an article in the latest  New Scientist, “Why the laws of the universe explain everything except you” . This the scientific conundrum.  Everything around us results from causality , even quantum mechanics however our minds work outside of causal reality, like gods with no causal connection to the physical world in its decision making process. Why does this duality exist?

    Religion has and explanation and science doesn’t. This is not a foundation but should give pause to explaining everything as subject to the natural world

    “Michael, are you sure you are not dogmatic in this opinion and more importantly in your approach to reality? You take great care to differentiate your views from those of mainstream Christianity. How do those  differ? Both mainstream and Michael-think spring from authority and doctrine and are held/cherished as cocksure. Once a person has fully embraced ideology/religion/views that are as aforementioned there is no possibility of discovering what is real or true if it is at variance with dogma. (dogma is amgod backwards…could that be a message?) You readily espouse your discoveries/understanding but divulge zero about the foundations. None of us are interested other than at an academic level (me not at all…bore the shit out of me) unless you establish the foundations. There are many reasons for us to discount all iterations of mythology, superstition and its dogma. So without doing that ( i have asked u repeatedly) there is no reason to respect/consider what you are representing.”

    The foundation of the mainstream is the Nicene Creed ratified by the Council of Nicaea under the auspices of Emperor Constantine of “by this sign you shall conquer” fame. One of his asia-minor bishops persuaded the majority to adopt the asiatic trinity in it’s theology/Christology.  It put the son equal with the Father and introduced a third person. A triune godhead is simply pagan. It misinterprets the Comforter as a third person whereas the comforter is associated with the birth from above that the believer shall receive that gives the believer a naked spiritual mind that does not have a spiritual body but will receive it in the future; this the” white robes “mention. martyrs who have received the “Christ mind”
    spiritually ascend upon death and are with Christ; “Souls under the alter” the rest of the dead have minds that have perished with their bodies and will not be conscientious again until Judgement day. Thus the Comforter is you in Christ who is  in the Father also viewed as the Christ and the Father and the newly birth spiritual mind of you in you. No third person in the Godhead equal to God. The Son is always subordinate to the Father. If  Mary is in heaven she is there as a spirtual mind joined to Christ, not as the queen of heaven appearing bodily as at the Coptic church in Zeitoun Egypt.

    Once you posit God then angels are posited also. Good and Bad ones. I posit that UFOs and aliens are supernatural just as the Mary apparition, sent to deceive.” Men’s hearts failing from fear of the things coming down on the earth, for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (sic)

    Michael, if we were visited by super-intelligent aliens and compelled to answer yes or no as to whether history attests to the accuracy of the prophecy of the book of revelation on pain of execution for an incorrect answer how would you answer?

    A Rod Serling  or Outer Limits adventure. If it were possible for
    non-supernatural aliens to exist,
    my response would yes.

    @michaelI became a member of the 4 Sigma Society. Well done on passing that one. Did it take Kevin a long time to send you the test results? I was once offered membership to “The 1000” but I declined.

    The test I took in 1979 is in PDF of the following link:

    http://www.housevampyr.com/training/library/books/omni/OMNI_1979_04.pdf

    It was scored by the 4 sigma society within a month.

    However there is new test now.

    Now that I recall I only averaged 164  in everything except verbal.

    That score was only 148.  So I actually became a member of a 3 sigma society ( called The Triple…) that was offered with my results. We engineers are the butt of many verbal jokes.🙂

    Obviously this is the harlot edifice to Isthar at the port gate beckoning all into the Babylon land of red light districts, opium dens and atheists

    Back in my wild days I went nightclubbing in Copenhagen and took pictures of the Little Mermaid.

    @micheal some anagrams take a little more work. Psalm 19:1-6 The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech. And night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language. Where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth. And their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun. Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber. And rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven. And his circuit unto the ends of it: And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

    Anagram of above:

    When I had listened to the erudite astronomer. When his high thoughts were arranged and charted before me. When I was shown the length and breadth and height of it. The Earth. the horned Moon. the chariot of fire. The hundredth flight of the shuttle through heavyish air. How soon I mysteriously became sad and sick. Had to wander out, ousted, charging through the forest. Joining the sure chaos here in a foreign heath. Having forgotten the vocation of the learned man and in the mystic clearing, once more looked up in perfect silence at the sermon in the stars.

    That is beyond the scope of the anagram software I’m familiar with. But back in the day I’d solve mine long hand including my full name:

    I’ll see lambs church era

    You can easily figure out my full name 🙂

    In New York, a port city that contains immense cathedrals and edifices to  Isthar ( Astarte). “The Statue of Liberty”, at its sea  inlet and outlet  is an anagram for:

    OUTLET BY ISHTAR FEET

    It is literally an “Ishtar Gate” to one of the daughters (Harlots) of Babylon (Rome)
