The Mind of Goatskin

"Wisdom is like a goat skin--everyone carries his own"
(African English Idiom)


Random Thoughts:

What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.- Buddha

The "Law of Attraction" is a spiritual law that states that what a person thinks about and focuses on both consciously AND subconsciously, they will attract into their life from the power of the "Universe" (and/or God or the Divine).

Consider this:

God is defined as omnipotent, omniscient,omnipresent,eternal,the alpha and the omega. What is the Cosmos? The Comos contains all energy, includes all knowledge because it is everything, it is everywhere because it is "the everywhere", it has been shown by one mathematician to be eternal and it appears we are on the verge of proving it has no beginning nor any end because, like a mbius strip, the beginning and the end are one and the same. I submit to you then, God = The Cosmos; And I ask, why is there a need to personify this "god" and create a being in our image to account for what we don't understand and raise a false hope of an afterlife?

"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." --Stephen Roberts

"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion." ---Steven Weinberg

"[E]very major religion today is a winner in the Darwinian struggle waged among cultures, and none ever flourished by tolerating its rivals."
---Edward O. Wilson

This is a work in progress - during the next several weeks I'll be reformatting my pages and presenting more of my thoughts on the world and the human adventure. Hopefully there will be more than just a venting of my concerns, frustrations and summing up of my experiences--hopefully there will be some informational bits, food for thought and entertainment value for a wide range of web surfers.

I plan to be updating at least weekly, so if something interests you, please come back for more and do so often.

This is part of the Treasures and Trash-South project which will be featuring a guide to both special and not-so-special web sites, books, music, ideas and shopping.

Some thoughts from "The World According to David Whitehouse" ........

  • The Meaning of Life

Life is evolution from innate potential to the greatest degree of understanding and ability; the purpose of life is to survive, experience, learn...advance to the highest level of competency and understanding possible.

  • Politics

The greatest threat to "The American Dream" is altruism. Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for yourself. The key precept of American democracy is INDIVDUALISM.

The primary purpose of government is to protect individual rights and provide for the common defense.

  • Paranormal

UFOs, ghosts, ESP, etc. are natural phenomena and should not be given supernatural attributes.

  • Religion

Religion was the first philosophy; it is based on myths emerging out of ignorance--convenient explanations for things beyond comprehension.Man created gods in his own image.

If there is a god, and the god is a "being" with gender, then logically, based on our knowledge of evolution and biophysics, God is a woman (BUT WHY WOULD A SUPREME BEING NEED GENDER?).

Actually we have outgrown our need for a supernatural "father". All religions are a form of altruism (as is Communism, etc.) -- Man can not subordinate himself to a supernatural being or to a government or any other entity if he is to properly participate his "evolutionary" process--he must protect his ego to realize his full potential as a rational, creative human being and protect the right of all individuals to pursue happiness in their own way.
