Part I: Indolent Babble
Well, for me no weekend has ever been more lethargic than this one (thank God). I was able to do a few more detailed checks on the camera I'm going to purchase and feel thoroughly comfortable with the choice I've made. Also, I was able to order a few more computer components to (hopefully) begin assembling the behemoth I'll be using for all my multimedia functions.
Part II: Neurology
Am I missing something? Have neurologist or scientists with theistic inclinations not discussed the neurological functions of the brain and how it relates to continuation after death? I can find NOTHING on this subject matter. I'm to the point where the question might be considered taboo [Why? This would make no sense. Have they (theistic scientists) been stumped by a finding they have no rebuttal against?], or so trivial that they have not only discussed it, but they are no moving beyond this topic and unto more lofty subject matter. In my understanding of God, the soul, and life after death, the neurological activities of the human being are a major sticking point for me. If you have any exposure to this topic, try answering a few of these:
1) If our personalities - and virtually everything we are - is sustained within some lobe inside the brain, WHAT continues after death when ALL neurological activity has come to a complete STOP?
2) What evidence even merely suggests continuation after death? Is "non-entity" a more accurate description of our ultimate fate?
3) If religious activity is nothing more than a psychological necessity to keep us emotionally "balanced" (as some have suggested), could we not extend this line of thinking to God, and conclude He exists nowhere but in our own minds, and not outside us as a living, detectable, consequential Deity?
These questions are just a few from a much larger volume. If you have an opinion, I welcome it.
“The search for truth is in one way hard and in another way easy, for it is evident that no one can master it fully or miss it wholly. But each adds a little to our knowledge of nature, and from all the facts assembled there arises a certain grandeur.” ~Aristotle
