Stiff

appreciation Breathing-Fragile-Life healing Joan Winifred logic science & spirituality wisdom

Stiff solutions don’t ultimately work. When we take the stiff approach to anything…we can be easily controlled say by the problem(s).

  1. One method to tackle real world problems is to look to real world (i.e. nature/creature) for solutions.

This is “a” brief example:

The world’s “currents” …impact us all. So what i’ve learned from Sea Horse’s tail …”being able to twist and untwist with minimal energy”…f~l~e~x~i~b~i~l~i~t~y protects me from being broken by tight spaces aka complex circumstances, etc. and makes me strong enough to tackle the task(s) at tail/hand. 🙂

i LOVE Biomimetics.

The Unscientific Mind

appreciation conscientious-ness Joan Winifred logic science & spirituality Truth universe wisdom

Visibility = scientific?! = Evidence??

Invisibility = unscientific?! = No evidence??

(What!? am i talking about? Some context.)

Description of this post: (a/my goofy writing of) sarcastic/snarky view of : visibility v. invisibility (flawed logic/reasoning “apparent” therein).

I cannot see gravity (per se) so it doesn’t exist –I skydive without a parachute, oh, how i love to walk without broken bones!

I cannot see electricity (per se) so it doesn’t exist–I hand wash all my clothes, and never eat toast and my communication limited?…most of all hate talking face to person.

What’s a microwave?? I don’t worry about radiation: I eat cold food and drink lukewarm tea most days.

Air? what’s that?…am turning blue and purple?? well, my lungs cannot be breathing oxygen, correct?

 ‘Are there some things that we cannot see with our eyes but that we believe exist because there are sound reasons to do so? What about the air we breathe? We may feel it when there is a breeze. We can tell that it fills our lungs, even though we do not see it. Because we see the effects, there is good reason to believe in it, isn’t that so?’ (2) ‘And we cannot see gravityBut when we drop something we see evidence that gravity is at work. Nor do we see odors, but our nose picks them up. We cannot see sound waves, but our ears detect them. So we believe in things we cannot see—provided there is good reason to do so, isn’t that right?’  [excerpted reading: Reasoning from the Scriptures: God]

Illustration: When we see a camera, a radio, or a computer, we readily acknowledge that it must have been produced by an intelligent designer. Would it be reasonable, then, to say that far more complex things—the eye, the ear, and the human brain—did not originate with an intelligent Designer? [rs p. 147: God]

0h, i’m being unscientific?!..cause I BELIEVE IN A GOD I CANNOT SEE!🙂

i’ve read (visible) books by (invisible) authors i’ve never met…yet…

Planet Earth: When crossing a barren desert, if you came to a beautiful house, well equipped in every way and stocked with food, would you believe that it got there by some chance explosion? No; you would realize that someone with considerable wisdom built it. Well, scientists have not yet found life on any of the planets of our solar system except the earth; available evidence indicates that the others are barren. This planet is, as the book The Earth says, “the wonder of the universe, a unique sphere.” (New York, 1963, Arthur Beiser, p. 10) It is at just the right distance from the sun for human life, and it moves at just the right speed to be held in orbit. The atmosphere, of a kind found only around the earth, is made up of just the right proportion of gases to sustain life. Marvelously, light from the sun, carbon dioxide from the air, and water and minerals from fertile soil combine to produce food for earth’s inhabitants. Did it all come about as a result of some uncontrolled explosion in space? Science News admits: “It seems as if such particular and precise conditions could hardly have arisen at random.” (August 24 and 31, 1974, p. 124) The Bible’s conclusion is reasonable when it states: “Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but he that constructed all things is God.”—Heb. 3:4.

men and women (myself included) write all these books, blogs, etc. to argue/prove/elevate our limited-imperfect-perspective-points (of view)… fictions? about trivialities.

May be? we need to take a break from reading fiction, and thoroughly examine/

Look at the living literature!…the “Book of Nature” …our planet, our universe, our bodies…speaking perfect, limitless volumes of Truth/evidence…albeit difficult to translate/analyze by arrogance.

Need some fresh air?

attitude Joan Winifred science & spirituality trust

“my” trust is………….EARNED.

actually it (my trust) is quite scientific: (bridled astronomy)

God saw everything he had made, and look! it was very good.​—Gen. 1:31.

(Yahweh) Jehovah is an awe-inspiring Creator. Everything he creates meets the highest standards. (Jer. 10:12) As is evident in creation, Jehovah lovingly set boundaries. He made both natural laws and moral laws to ensure that everything functions harmoniously. (<>Ps. 19:7-9) Hence, all things in the universe have an assigned place and function according to their role in God’s purpose. Jehovah sets the standard for how his creation should work together. Thus, the law of gravity holds the atmosphere close to the earth, regulates tides and oceans, and contributes to the physical order essential to life on earth. All creation, including humans, moves and functions within these boundaries. Clearly, the order in creation testifies that God has a purpose for earth and mankind. [excerpted reading: w 17.02 1:4, 5]

Ancient & Modern Inquiries

appreciation book Breathing-Fragile-Life education family God insights Joan Winifred science & spirituality spiritual food study things i learned True v. False Religion trust Truth

Looking for context see this

An Ancient Inquiry

 

22. How did the Athenians’ many theories about their gods affect their way of worship?

22 In the first century of our Common Era, Athens, Greece, was a prominent center of learning. Among the Athenians, however, there were many different schools of thought, such as the Epicureans and the Stoics, each with its own idea about the gods. Based on these various ideas, many deities were venerated, and different ways of worship developed. As a result, the city was full of man-made idols and temples.​—Acts 17:16.

23. What totally different view about God did the apostle Paul present to the Athenians?

23 In about the year 50 C.E., the Christian apostle Paul visited Athens and presented to the Athenians a totally different point of view. He told them: “The God that made the world and all the things in it, being, as this One is, Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in handmade temples, neither is he attended to by human hands as if he needed anything, because he himself gives to all persons life and breath and all things.”​—Acts 17:24, 25.

24. In effect, what was Paul telling the Athenians about true worship?

24 In other words, Paul was telling the Athenians that the true God, who “made the world and all the things in it,” is not a fabrication of man’s imagination, nor is he served by ways that man might devise. True religion is not just a one-sided effort by man to try to fill a certain psychological need or quell a certain fear. Rather, since the true God is the Creator, who gave man thinking ability and power of reason, it is only logical that He would provide a way for man to come into a satisfying relationship with Him. That, according to Paul, was exactly what God did. “He made out of one man every nation of men, to dwell upon the entire surface of the earth, . . . for them to seek God, if they might grope for him and really find him, although, in fact, he is not far off from each one of us.”​—Acts 17:26, 27.

25. Explain the key point of Paul’s argument about mankind’s origin.

25 Notice Paul’s key point: God “made out of one man every nation of men.” Even though today there are many nations of men, living all over the earth, scientists know that, indeed, all mankind is of the same stock. This concept is of great significance because when we speak of all mankind’s being of the same stock, it means much more than their being related just biologically and genetically. They are related in other areas as well.

Care to read on…

26. What is known about language that supports Paul’s key point?

26 Note, for instance, what the book Story of the World’s Worship says about man’s language. “Those who have studied the languages of the world and compared them with each other have something to say, and it is this: All languages can be grouped into families or classes of speech, and all these families are seen to have started from one common source.” In other words, the languages of the world did not originate separately and independently, as evolutionists would have us believe. They theorize that cave-dwelling men in Africa, Europe, and Asia started with their grunts and growls and eventually developed their own languages. That was not the case. Evidence is that they “started from one common source.”

27. Why is it logical to think that man’s ideas about God and religion started from one common source?

27 If that is true of something as personal and as uniquely human as language, then would it not be reasonable to think that man’s ideas about God and religion should also have started from one common source? After all, religion is related to thinking, and thinking is related to man’s ability to use language. It is not that all religions actually grew out of one religion, but the ideas and concepts should be traceable to some common origin or pool of religious ideas.
