Hi Ellis; good to see you are still keeping an eye on things.

So sorry you have lost your pug. The house seems quite empty after that sort of loss, doesn't it?

It seems your cat is doing his best to fill the void. smile

Sounds like my kind of cat!

Stick around; it would be a shame to lose contact with you completely.

Going strong? Generally speaking, no one but the Reverend posts here, other than to speak to the points of interest which are usually isolated to the Reverends claim to fame regarding the amount of bot generated hits.

Even I haven't had a reason to post here because of the lack of interest in this thread.

That's amazing.....


Yes! And please take note: There are now 2,361 responses & 9,861,602 hits, and all despite the cynicism and jealousy of TT.

Ellis, thanks for dropping by. I realize that you are not a fan of organized religion, especially of the dogmatic and fanatic variety; but keep in mind, neither am I.

Also keep in mind:
1. It is a huge subject with so many different denominations that it is impossible to keep track of them.

2. All my life, I have approached the phenomenon which we call religion as a serious student looking for answers.

I approach it:
(a) philosophically--what can we learn form studying it that is interesting and worth knowing?
(b) psychologically--how does it affect our behaviour and emotions?) and
(c) pneumatologically--how does it encourage us to use our WILLpower and, Spiritually speaking, be morally strong enough to keep the Golden Rule, be of service to self and others, so that empowered by LOVE--St. John's definition of GOD together work on making the world a better and more Loving place in which to live?

FOR THE THEOLOGY BEHIND ALL THIS, check out the following. It is in a thread that I have in www.wondercafe2.ca

G~O~D~The Gift of Oneness & Delight. It Generates Organizes & Delivers: The good we Will to have.

You do realize you make up over 60% of those 2000 responses you make note of.
Jealousy? Not at all. In eight months, there has only been a signal of acknowledgement from Bill regarding Ellis' return which had nothing to do with the Topic of the thread, and the usual replies I make addressing your narcissism.
I would actually revel in some conversations regarding the philosophy of religions if that was something that could actually take place in this thread without you hijacking it into a repetitive biography and claim to fame and glory.

Cynicism? Possibly. I might agree with that view being that this is mostly a venue you use to advertize yourself and your beliefs, without actually discussing philosophy of religion.

The philosophy of religion wouldn't necessarily be a tracking system to follow each individual in their beliefs or the history of personal belief, but a discussion regarding its place in and amongst people as they explore their relationship with the Universe. It can be discussed without becoming specific to ones own personal opinion. I realize that would take all the wind out of your sails when discussing anything of interest, because it would mean the topic of discussion would be the philosophy of religion rather than the philosophy of Rev. LGKing... wink

I have done this and I do that... still gotta be about you.
Well...
From your examples, what you believe is worth knowing may have nothing to do with what another has any interest in. That would be self evident in the responses within the discussion groups you advertize yourself on. The replies are similar in content to the ones I make here, in that they address the repetitive comments that have nothing to do with much other than your need for attention. When someone tries to discuss what is interesting to them, you reply with what is interesting to you and then unfold the Rev. LG King historical scroll.

The idea that a belief as an entity all its own, with its own power to subdue and direct a person is an interesting psychological idea. One you seem to give power to in that you idolize God as something outside of ones self with the power to move the strings (so to speak) as a puppeteer would move the strings of a marionette to create will power and the good we idealize. Yet it all seems so vague in that you and your study reveals no actual discipline or relationship to anything other than an occasional outburst of "Sounds good to me!"
IF God is not a "who" as you pontificate, how can it be realized, and why is it separate from everything that is not what you call Good or organized? Perhaps you simply idolize God as everything not evil or separate from the idols you make and shine with your praise in belief and personal attachment.

See yer putting the cart before the horse. You believe "IT" (religion) which is belief can manufacture will power, rather than will power being relative to the understanding of the nature of ones self and reality.
If one believes the world is flat and uses that as the power to keep his mind focused on staying away from the edge of the earth, then his will is misdirected.

If you want to speak of people given authority within religion and whether they have an impact upon others who are weak minded and feel they have no power, then any idea of power residing outside of ones self as the impetus for gain would be tantamount to comparing an electric device and a battery. Remove the battery and the device stops working. When a belief system becomes the source of ones power or will, a person no longer is a person but rather a device run by a battery or power source. When that battery drives a person in circles, but the battery promises the circle goes somewhere, then will is ignorant and misguided.

Just because a person wears a clerical collar doesn't mean he can determine reality from illusion. blush whistle

Been there. Seems when no one wants to listen to you there, you troll this site to try and lure them to your self proclamations of greatness on another site, hoping to get a response.

If IT is something that can generate what we want. Oneness would be relative to a relationship with something you can experience and realize similar principles in thought and goals. Religion whether something you philosophize as dogmatic or not, as you either present or fail to present claims no method or pathway to direct experience of God as you define it.
Being that you never take the conversation to its potential but rather just seek to advertize yourself, I'd say creating a fancy title to discuss is irrelevant.

NARCISSISTS? Of course we love people--but of course, that is AGAPE-Love--and it includes loving ourselves. Go ahead, TT, try it.

PNEUMA-therapy--Soma, Psyche & Pneuma. It is an excellent kind of therapy, and I have used it as a great therapy for hypocrisy, including my own.

BTW, with the approval of medical specialists at SICK CHILDRENS' Hospital, here is how it--from the book by John Robert Colombo, EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCES IN CANADA--was first used to help save a life:

You mean you love people to love you!
Every home needs a sewer line and everyone loves convenience and utility.
The orderly part of God you speak of (putting things in their place and perspective).
I love the perfection of truth's in reality! wink
Everyone has one, and they are all real to someone. Until they change their mind. cool

In your case tho, forgiving yourself seems to be in the need to draw approval for how well you can raise the level of your own ratings. crazy

Sorta like talking someone down from the roof before they jump, then wrapping them in a jacket to put them in a room for some treatment?

Rev, I tried following your link and got a G-mail sign up page. Do you have another link? I didn't see anywhere on that page to go to any article about hypnosis.

Thanks!

New Theory!

Everything else goes into this thread, so why not a new theory.

Rev and TT are really the same person: Trev T. He has been keeping this thread going, almost single handed, for years.

As much as I'm in favor of the reality that everything is connected, I (personally) like to think that even tho my anus is attached and an integral part of my self, that there are other parts of me that are more readily recognized by most as supporting a life function that recognizes and builds upon "connectivity" in the spirit of philosophy, and the philosophy and direct cognition and application of "spirit". cool That being the case, the idea that this thread is going anywhere would be subject to what functioning organs of intent, goodness and organization are thoughtfully producing the delightful outcomes of this thread being that you suggest it is functioning or "going".. (just in case someone wants to vote in favor that this thread is actually "alive").

Since it seems more like a sewer for anything and everything narcissistic and Rev. King, I would say that even tho all parts connected are creating a function here in this thread, its not of the creative part that writes symphonies and discovers new horizons, but rather a facility to recognize and recycle waste products.

IF we as a body (Trev.T) are working together in this function, then that is fine. However to say we are the same would be like saying your hand and your penis (even tho they might spend a lot of time together in utility) are the same. I like to think that certain qualities help to highlight our unique differences. wink

Interesting thought tho.. Could mean all the parts are played by the same actor. Wouldn't that be a hoot! All, just to gain recognition!

A ploy to save religion from being further fractured by so much controversy and delusion, by pretending to be a Hero amongst all others.

===================================

Interestingly, Edwin J Dingle, was known as a journalist, a world traveller and the founder of the course from The Institute of Mentalphysics. As I recall, curious world traveller that he was, he actually came to visit Bell Island, NL. www.bellisland.net where I was born, Jan, 1930. I vaguely remember him asking if we (the Kings) were in the public gathering. After, he shook our hands.

One final note: Later, at university www.mta.ca I showed my prof--that is, the one who in charge of guiding me into philosophy, psychology and theology, my major subjects and loaned him the folder I had about Mental-physics. When he returned the folder to me, I was happy to hear him comment that he heartily approved of most of the basic ideas in the materials.

Interesting idea, Bill S. So I will ask: What shall we call this New Theory: The Philosophy-Science-ART Theory? OK by me!

Meanwhile, speaking of ART, the following photos will illustrate what beautiful truth, knowledge and science working together--under the Holistic guidance of Good-WILL (Agape) is capable of producing.

YES! She is my 57 year-old daughter, Catherine and was born April 1, 1956 (then Easter Sunday) Tide Head, New Brunswick. Both Catherine and her husband, Wayne Adams, are on FaceBook.

They are also very talented artists. Back in1992, we were there when the first building was just large enough to sleep the four of us.

Quite a story of how, as a youth she took off from Toronto and made her way, with some friends,to Victoria, B.C. where she met Wayne and later travelled together to Tofino.

THE NEUTRINO. MILLIONS OF TIMES SMALLER THAN OTHER SUBATOMIC PARTICLES?

The humble neutrino particle won its fourth Nobel Prize in physics this year (also in 2002, 1995 and 1988). Despite being millions of times smaller than other subatomic particles, it is of major importance in physics and could be the key to unravelling some of the universe's best-kept secrets. So where is neutrino research heading next and what could it discover?

Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2015-10-neutrino-great-cosmic-mysteries-nobel.html#jCp

http://phys.org/news/2015-10-neutrino-great-cosmic-mysteries-nobel.html

Matter is made of fundamental particles. Most people will have heard of electrons, neutrons and protons and perhaps even quarks, which make up the latter two. But to me, the neutrino is the most amazing fundamental particle. They are everywhere. About 65 billion neutrinos, produced by nuclear fusion in the Sun, pass through every square centimetre of area on Earth, every second (you could try and calculate that yourself), without doing anything.
