Is the idea of a "god" inherent in our minds? posted 07 September 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionIs the idea of a "god" inherent in our minds? by Grantaire, Moderator

I know Scott, it's quite impossible to do. But I'm simply saying, there's a fundamental level of determinism, even past the whole free will argument. And yes, I do tend towards nihilism. But I think you're taking my use of the word "reason" wrong. I think that things don't have inherent value, the only value is what is created by society and by our needs. When I said that I believe things happen for a reason is my belief in a determinable chain of cause and effect. Things just don't spontaneously happen. I would think that this would be something that you would be a proponent of, seeing as how that seems to be a key idea of the concept of "the darkness that comes before" in the thus named book. view post
