For those of you who have heard about the miracles of christianity and still oppose it bc you think its all bullshit, and that christians are just dumbasses who think the world is ruled by some guy in the clouds, yall must be crazy. The grassroot of all arguments made by athiests, agnostics, and christ-haters alike is made in a "realm" of truth. But empirics fail. Read and Respond.
Reality and truth within the world is an illusion. Jean Baudrillard in “Impossible Exchange” explains how the world has no equivalent and thus no truth, he writes:
Baudrillard explains that the world has no comparison and thus, worldly reality cannot be exchanged for truth because there is no other comparison to derive truth from reality. Baudrillard explains why this creates an illusory reality effect, he writes:
Baudrillard continues by illustrating his idea with an economic tangent, he writes:
Baudrillard argues that the economic system also has no equivalent so is thus indeterminate of what it actually is and cannot be figured out by any intelligence. Because there is no comparison that can be made to exchange the reality of the economic system we are in now, with truth about what will happen, everything is speculation. Baudrillard further illustrates his idea by linking it with modern biology. He writes:
Baudrillard argues that our certainty about the world cannot be absolute because the speculation is never solved through discovery. This further shows the subjectivity of truth from reality because there is no definite truth. Baudrillard goes on to link this idea with politics, he writes:
Baudrillard argues that politics has no meaning outside of itself and cannot be apoprached from a universal philosophical level, which means, politics and law also can have no truth, because there is no higher reality that can ground it into truth. Baudrillard continues on the issue of politics and law, he writes:
Baudrillard’s argument here is that the political system as a whole is ever fluctuating which adds to its illusions. Moreover, he argues that any “objective” assessment of the political system serves purpose for only that certain system and is irrelevant to any other reality. The implication is thus, that whatever “truth” can be derived about politics can’t be applied to any other reality, including the church, because there is no higher truth to ground the two systems in.
But he forgets FAITH. It is true we never know anything for certain, and ideals may add to one another but be rendered meaningless inside other spheres, but the idea of absolute truth is false in its own right. We think but do not remember what we think, because even time in itself has no value; it self devides into seconds and milliseconds and nanoseconds until we reach no end to a single unit of time: thus reality is really composed of a sphere that can never be examined, thus never understood. Since truth does not exist in the realm of time, it cannot exist in the mind or anywhere else, because thoughts are in the realm of time. We think, but that memory is stored in the lobes of the brain, and we trust that whatever is in the lobes is what reality is. We constantly have faith that what our brain tells us is correct, but in all actuality, it could be wrong and everything in the world that we think we know, everything we do and have ever done could all be a lie. Thus, the end all for actually knowing something should be to have something to believe in. The argument shared by all who oppose any sort of faith is that they never really know: all are arguments made in empirics and through logic and mind. All faith except christianity requires you to do something or sacrifice something to achieve something in another realm, but since truth has no meanng, and ideals in separate realms mean nothing outside of themselves, the efforts are all in vain. But faith is the only ideal that transcends all. We never truly know anything, but have trust that it is right: thus christianity is measured through the faith in the savior; moreover the faith in that he died for our sins: it is the only faith or walk of life where something is done FOR you, but not done in request by you for an action. The only ideal in request is faith in your salvation. The metadebate continues on how and why things are, but ultimately the arguments made by athiests and agnostics and all those who oppose christianity fail to apply to the metaphysical level of truth.
