Re: What is an Apathist?
- Well, actually, Prolus, if you want to get
technical, there certainly are at least two concepts that
the human mind CANNOT comprehend and therefore might
be explained by an all powerful entity.<br><br>The
first was how did the big bang and the material of the
universe first get created or set in motion. I mean, I
believe in teh big bang, but where did the MATTER come
from?<br><br>Secondly, the limits of the Universe. Can your mind
remotely comprehend, how far, what is beyond the edges of
the universe? No, you cannot comprehend infinity.
<br><br>If humans cannot comprehend or explain something,
then we don't know everything.<br><br>Further, if an
omnipotent being has a PLAN, for us, it is entirely possible
that the struggle for truth is part of that plan. Not
that I am buying into it, but it is not unreasonable.
Hell, if god lets good people die, then letting good
people strugle with his existance is not that
bad.<br><br>The point is, that if God exists, does not matter.
What matters is the EFFECT of the idea of his
existance on all of the billions of peop[le you and I have
to deal with. How do we reach them? The only way to
reach them is by going THROUGH, or AROUND the concept
of God, not denying it.<br><br>Apathist.

doing so is that it reflects the blue tint of the sky downward. Close
up, a mirror coated aircraft will be visible, but only as a distorted
blob. At a distance, that distortion would be negligable. Combine the
fact that the craft reflects the tint of the sky in all directions
(sun reflection goes upward only so it isn't a factor as long as the
craft flies high) and the fact that it absorbs incomming radar, and
shields it's own thermal emissions, such a craft would be very hard
to see indeed.
FYI I am not refering to just mirror polished, I mean literally as
reflecting as a mirror you would see on a wall.
