Man or Message, Book or Philosophy.
In this age of religious turmoil, what is it people primarily believe in.
They may join a religion because the 'message' is convincing. But believing a philosophical message, a particular ethic, is what everyone does whether they call it religion or not. In religious Communities there is a subtle shift in belief. It transfers from the idea to the person, or book, or to a human authority within the community or at its head. There is a vast ethical difference between these, and that relates to the real fundamental divide. Between reasoned debate of ideas, and bigoted authority. Even worse the adulation of things rather than the ideas conveyed.

RW I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this and so you might clarify for the benefit of the Typical Blockhead (me). By "human authority" do you mean for instance a priest and are you suggesting by "shift"that the hoi polloi come to consider him sacred

Then is he one of those "things"

@RW Standing,
it depends on ur mind, wat do u think is better truth or wills

willing by definition is the opposition to what exist already, otherwise u cant b absolutely positive to smthg not existing at all considering being present through much more then through what u r really or what objectively exist

but wills is also by definition objective gains so the notion of better is more alive through objective existence of wills
when in truth the concept of better is always then excessively slow to show
