Do you choose to believe? (Christian)

Do you choose not to believe? (Athiest)

What dont you to be?
What do you to be?

Can we be anything if we choose not to be something?
Can we be anyhting if we choose to be something?

What are we without our choices?
What are we with our choices?

Are we only what we choose to be or not to be?

What is the inbetween, intermediary?
What is the thing that chooses to believe or not to believe?
Is this inbetween our true being or where all being springs forth of from towards?

I want to know what the inbetween choice and decision is?

(Should this be in Epistemology?)

I've just recently become both, simultaneously.

This is brilliant. I think you are exactly right.

@Reconstructo,
What we are is the synergistic culmination of our choices colluding with our non-choices.

What about choosing neither? I mean if you can choose both, why can't you choose neither?

@Krumple,
:bigsmile:I believe in triade, like they did in Egypte and Italy. There's more to see than black & white, moon & sun. I try i-maging an alternative for duality of the mind. I think there's to much lust in the World which distracts from the Real individual.

------------

Those that believe 'God exists' is true ..(theists)
Those that believe 'God exists' is false ..(atheists)
Those that do not believe 'God exists' is true ..(non-theists)
Those that do not believe 'God exists' is false..(non-atheists).

Theists or non-theists includes everyone.
Atheists or non-atheists includes everyone.
But, theists or atheists, does not include everyone.

For example, a baby is neither theist nor atheist...babies are both non-theists and non-atheists. We can't be sure about what a newborn believes at all, can we?

The Inbetween of 'theist or atheist' are those people who do not understand the meaning of 'God exists'.

Great post. But these two can also be fused or both negated.

Quote:


4.44 The sign that results from correlating the mark 'I' with
truth-possibilities is a propositional sign.
Quote:

1.1 The world is the totality of facts, not of things.
Quote:

1.13 The facts in logical space are the world.
Quote:

3.01 The totality of true thoughts is a picture of the world.


3.02 A thought contains the possibility of the situation of which it is
the thought. What is thinkable is possible too.

3.03 Thought can never be of anything illogical, since, if it were, we
should have to think illogically.

3.031 It used to be said that God could create anything except what
would be contrary to the laws of logic. The truth is that we could not
say what an 'illogical' world would look like.

3.032 It is as impossible to represent in language anything that
'contradicts logic' as it is in geometry to represent by its coordinates
a figure that contradicts the laws of space, or to give the coordinates
of a point that does not exist.
