    philosophy is study by philosophers, hence the name philosophy.

    I am interested in philosophy, although I have to admit I don't have that much knowledge of it. I'm hoping to learn more though.

    I have often wondered what it would be like to 'step into' somebody elses body for a bit and think their thoughts (while knowing I'm really me) and experience being them.

    yeh.. ive often thought that too... just to see what its like... but the thing is.. even though you've "stepped into" another person's body and are thinking "their" thoughts.. is it really their thoughts that you are thinking?.. i mean.. okay... everyone has their own experiences right? and the way interpret certain events, etc. totally differs from person to person because we all see things differently due to our own personal experiences, thoughts, etc.
    so if you really were "somebody else" and supposedly were thinking "their" thoughts, wouldnt it be greatly influenced by your own?
    so in the end, their actually just your interpretations on someone else's thoughts which in a way would make it in the end your thoughts anyway?
    far... did that make sense?

    here's a question:

    if a person has never heard of the word of God, yet continues to live a campassionate and benevalent lifestyle and helps other people, is he more deserving that a criminal who believes in God, yet still commits crimes only to pray for forgiveness of his sins?

    and what of people who have no respect for other people, who think those that do not believe in God don't deserve to go to heaven, yet there are people who don't people in God and are much better people than those that do? who is more deserving? the stuck up elitist bitch or the humble person?
    That's a tricky question. From a human perspective, i know who i'd say appears more deserving. Definitely the compassionate + humble people.

    The truth is though, no-one is deserving of heaven or eternal life. Not even "saints". All have sinned and fall short (Rom 3:23). When u think about it, Jesus was humble, compassionate and helped people. He never deserved to die. But He did, in our place. It's His gracious sacrifice that makes it possible for humans to be reconciled with God.

    Basically, it's not about what you do or how you act, it's who you know. And to "know" God is eternal life. (John 17:3) (know = trust)

    there is no perfect answer to these type of questions. Such is its way, that any number of quotes would appear to sidle one character away from the other. Humans are a base of contradictions. Supposing we take the path of evidence that leads us to one side of the matter- not everybody would lean to this view, and of course new evidence would be created by these ppl who are indifference; or are they really.

    Truthfully,i havent read te story in its entirity. Though, how can one human life be placed above another- in essence we are all the same; another contradiction!

    I heard one once.

    "You must stand to walk"

    Well duh, dumbass. Now whoever thought of that! Some dude named Confucious, apparently 8)
    Btw, I know that there is deeper meaning to the statement, and yes, i know who confucious is - i don't know him personally, but i know of him.

    I don't need philosophy for that. All you need is sharp and nimble manipulation of language.

    I just had a look at this thread... a cursory view - so has anyone mentioned Nietzsche.. *cough* avatar *cough* - he had a huge influence on existentialism, which was one of the first philosophical viewpoints mentioned in this thread, well actually caused it to come into existence ... "God is dead" - there was no intent before existence hence existence came to be primary over intent which was a by-product of existence - How can we find meaning in a meaningless world - Ubermensch - we must create our own meaning by destroying old ideals or idols and use them as raw materials for new ideals - ones which will also, eventually, be overcome
    - on a side note - what is everyone's favourite philosopher (as crass as that does sound ) and for what reasons?

    I don't have a favourite philosopher, because I prefer to delve into any philosophy and use it to form my own. Of course, I haven't done much of that in a while

    1. God is not a physical being, but rather a spiritual one:. he cannot drown and plus he is immoprtal
    2. No. He would have the key if he himself built it
