"Existence" 

What questions does this word summon? Let's tackle arguably the biggest philosophical question.

    Just thought of another possible angle: The eyes send a signal to the brain which recieves the signal that you've seen (whatever). You believe what you saw. The signal had to be recieved before the brain determined it was seen. So.... I'm sticking with my above reply ;-).

    As an atheist or agnostic, I believe what I see. Theists, I would have to say see what they believe. But that was too easy. Am I looking at this differently than you... ?

    Do we see what we believe or believe what we see?

    Great meetup. Got those thoughts out there that most people prefer not to ponder and/or address. Thanks Scott, for resuming the meetups.

    If you agree that morals can be difined as ethics. Morals may be of an opinion but ethics never are... in my opinion. *heh, heh* ;-). I enjoy the occasional self contraditiction, it means I'm thinking.

    Here is the quote I thought significant to our discussion of the objectivity of morals (or one could define of ethics). "The existence of God is not subjective. He either exists or he doesn?t. It?s not a matter of opinion. You can have your own opinions. But you can?t have your own facts." ~ Ricky Gervais

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
