    Open Office

    I am comfortable with google Docs, even without using cloud. Office online requires more sign ins. All linux distributions use libre-office. So, it is always there. I wish there was just a simple polished word-processor rather than suits.

    Humans as Non-Animal: Can any inferences be drawn?

    For Hindus, we humans are just one of the 8.4 million yonis (life forms). Being born as a human is a privilege and the only chance when one could aspire for Moksha/Englightenment. Not doing our 'karmas' right, not following our 'dharma', will send us to other yonis. Kabir said: "tune rāt gavāi...

    Debian

    Got Debian LXDE to work as I wanted 11.02s boot on an i3, no SSD, no swap, autologin, 4GB memory, ethernet without WICD or NetworkManager services. Last problem: systemd-ask-password-plymouth.path. Startup finished in 4.331s (kernel) + 6.690s (userspace) = 11.022s graphical.target reached...

    A God without compelling evidence?

    I could not immediately understand post 88. Our situation does not require an intelligent force. Do Relativity or Quantum Mechanics require intelligent force? That is no reason. They have been indoctrinated, and in many cases barred from questioning for fear of death.

    A God without compelling evidence?

    The title of the topic should be changed to "A God without even a sliver of evidence".

    That is what we know at the moment. That does not deny any future corrections. The question "Where did Brahman arise from?" still stands. To answer that, Brahman will have to overcome the problem of existence and non-existence (i.e., before it all started Brahman was in a non-existent phase). :)...

    What to be proved? Was there anything other than the high pressure high temperature energy ball at the time of Big Bang? :)

    It is because of ToE that I rejected theism. Brahman (what exists) is no neutral that you cannot blame it for ToE. At the level of Absolute Truth (Paramarthika Satya), beings do not exist, so no problem of ToE. At the level of Pragmatic Truth (Vyavaharika Satya, seeing what happens in the...

    "You too are that" (Tat twam asi). Combine the words and it reads 'Tattwamasi'. All of physics, all of religion and all of philosophy in just one word.

    Yeah, GN, Christians and Muslims also are Brahman only; even Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Saddam, Gadafi, Osama and Caliph Ibrahim also were none other than Brahman. Only that they were ignorant of themselves, that is why their actions. As I said, there is nothing other than Brahman in the...

    Acceptance of LGBTQ in Hinduism

    Sure, Southernhybrid, it is so very simple with people who follow a strict 'Advaita' (non-duality) philosophy. Since it is non-dual, one cannot have God/Gods/Goddesses in it. So, no God, no soul, no heaven, no hell, no reincarnation. What is perceived is looked as an 'illusion' (maya, but what...

    Acceptance of LGBTQ in Hinduism

    It is gratifying to know that Hinduism accepted LGBTQ even in the dark middle ages. "Ram-charit-manas", a highly revered book and very popular in North India, was written in 1631 by Saint Tulsidas in Awadhi language (spoken around Lucknow and Ayodhya). It is not just the story of Lord Rama life...

    Perhaps what you are seeing is the normal amplitude variation of Brahman. Brahman does that all the time.

    State Shinto Trumps every Religion.

    In that case, come to Advaita Hinduism. Pure Quantum Mechanics.

    But what has changed? Nothing. It is still energy pervading the whole universe.

    Yeah, DBT, that is very correct - and something deep to understand. Brahman has no particular form for itself but it can take all forms without falsifying that it is changeless. The reason is that Brahman always changes, every plank moment, and nobody understood it better than Richard Faynman...

    The real problem: Christianity

    And Islam. Basically the Abrahamic religions. Lest one forgets.

    "Tat twam Asi" (That is what you are) George Harrisson did not understand this. He got into wrong company. :) Sage Uddalaka Aruni explaining Brahman to his son, Śvetaketu: 1. O Somya (my dear son), suppose a man is brought with his hands tied, and they say: ‘This man has stolen something. He...
