I ventured outside a little earlier and could actually feel the sun on my skin.
I did not as many people may believe burst into flames of any sort nor did my voice take on a rasping sound as I backed indoors hissing about it burning.
50 seated row things115lbs 50 lat pulls 120lbs 100 chest presses 80lbs and 50 sit ups with a 5KG medicine ball all followed by a 15K ride in 30 minutes. Not bad for an old un.
Had a wander up to the driving range to whack a few golf balls (very therapeutic when you have been dealing with retards) and now Ive just finished lunch and have been for some unknown reason thinking about the existence of God, or divine supreme being whatever it wants to call itself and this has brought me around to the paradox of the stone which I mentioned earlier in the month.
So what is the paradox of the stone? It goes something like this,
Can God create a stone so heavy that he cannot lift it?
Either he/she/it can create such a stone of he/she/it can’t. (for the purposes of the rest of this section he/she/it will be called god and I will very presumptuously call it a he been as we pray to our farther god in heaven)
If he can’t, then the argument goes, there is something that he cannot do, namely create the stone, and therefore he is not omnipotent.
If he can, it continues, then there is also something that he cannot do, namely lift the stone, and therefore he is not omnipotent.
Either way, then, God is not omnipotent. A being that is not omnipotent, though, is not God. God, therefore, does not exist.
However to counter this paradox we have the following, you may have to think about it a while to get the full extent of what is being said but it is also very simple,
If there were no God, there would be no Atheists.
Now interweb, just like back at school I would like you to go away and write an essay on the relative merits of both arguments. The highest scorer will win a packet of those pink floury bon bon things.
And so to the drivel of the day if you don’t count the above as drivel try this,
A tough lesson in life that one has to learn is that not everybody wishes you well and should you wish to learn you must sit down as a child and be prepared to give up every preconceived notion... or you shall learn nothing and remember this well, Nobody believes the official spokesman... but everybody trusts an unidentified source.
