Interesting question, my personal belief is you continue to be a person in your living actions & memories which you leave as a legacy...Which also implies that you cease to be a person if you are not remembered...

lets get some more input and build on this...

if i hear person, i imagine the character and attributes of that individual embodied in a physical frame.

dying takes out the physical body, thus the "person" is not to be seen.

1) the only "person" that is left, is what has been rightly said before, the previous memories we have of that "person" and any attributes both physical/mental, that have been left over.

2) in a belief based theory, the person continues to exist outside the body..

3) the ones against the idea of afterlive, would perhaps rather subscribe to point 1) alone.

peace
all imo so what u think?

Yes You Are. Your Perished Essence Still Exists.


"he Died"

"they Died"

"he Was A Good Man"


You're Still Referring To The Person

You are formally a person. You are no longer a person. Unless you are the little boy from 6th sense you can't see dead people. Once you die you cease living. You become part of the food chain.

And Don't Go And Try To Lecture Me Lol. I'm All For Knowing The Truth But There's Alot Of Truth That Cannot Be Explained Or Found. For People To Think That Their Existance Is Meanlingless And It's A Result Of A Scientifical Accident, I Don't Know How You Live With Yourselves. I Recommend The Book "angels & Demons"; It'll Split Your Wig And Open Your Eyes To New Heights. I Believe Science & Religon Are Connected In More Ways Than You Think.

Just my opinion (althought a lot of scientific evidence points to this) that we are just a purposless, meaningless, cosmic accident. Nothing more. Is that so bad? Why does there have to be more than that?

Thats the trip with all of it. A lot of what humans do is a result of emotion. And thats why I ask why there has to be more? Does there really, or do we just want there to be to make us feel like were not insignificant specs in the universe?

you said your "perished" essence, which is contrary to saying an existing essence. furthermore, what is your essence? is your essence what others say about you? are other people's words your essence?

I see where you coming from.

The thing is........ a lot of the Truth is stifled in order to keep everyone politically *opressed (I mean *correct).

Did you notice that "scientists" were once absolutely positive that Blacks were mentally inferior to whites?

Yes....this propagated the politcal agenda at the time.

Do you really think that every thing is on the up and up now?

I don't.

whitey

Do scientists today think blacks are mentally inferior to whites?

Aqueous Moon
06-07-2006, 08:13 PM
Who cares?.......I sure don't.

But, some of you seem to be very interested in what the "scientist" have to say about things.

Eventhough they are just as susceptible to political and prejudice bias as any other person.

You brought it up. Hah, your reasoning is laughable. You are a brainwashed tool. Hating people is going to get you no where. Its an individual by individual basis.

What tha???

I said nothing about hating people.

I wasn't even responding to nothing you said.

I didn't even pay attention to what you said!!...... I was talking to MathMatician.

And I was agreeing with him - just in case you didn't notice.

You should stay out of my convos cuz you obviously can't keep up!

whitey
06-07-2006, 09:30 PM
What are you talking about?

You said something about scientist and blacks, then I asked a question about it and you brushed it aside.

And its pretty clear probably half the time your talking on here your spewing hate. All the white hate is the same as black hate.

What I said about what the "scientists" said about Blacks was very clear and to the point.

I said nothing about hating anyone.

Keep up with the convo and stop spamming threads with this off topic bullshit.

Go back to the thread about slaves on slaveships if you wanna get sonned some more.

Haha you are a joke.

I asked you a question over a comment you had made, and you bullshit your way out of it like you always do with your pathetic retoric.

And you are constantly pissing hate around.

You sonning me? On what? Grow up girl.

I don't have to answer your dumb ass questions.

It was a stupid assed question anyway.

isnt it true
that the only reason

there is more to our exsistence
is that we dont want to feel insignificant

ok...you think that I am denying progress concerning scientists and politics. watever.

personally, I don't regard the above with much respect because they have already lost so much credibility and reliability in my perspective.

And this is why I said...."Who cares? I sure don't"

And then that's when you went psycho.

whitey
06-08-2006, 11:42 AM
Psycho? I'd like to see your defination.


You keep blaming people in the past there will be no progess.

You keep blaming people in the past there will be no progess.

What people do in the past directly effects what happens in the future.
Examining the past and critisizing it brings clarity and understanding and progress.

The way you run away from the past tells me a lot about your thought process....and I don't think very highly of it either. The feeling is mutual!
