The more I read about religion, the more I think he was right with this. All theological disagreements are at the essence metaphysical, and religious beliefs are eventually described in a metaphysical system.
>>573409 This desu. If you actually delve into it there's reasons for everything done in religion, but uncritical fedoratards and bible bumpers fail to realise this and instead just think religion is a set of rules or something that you're "born" with.
It's really a shame, because there's a lot to be taken from proper, introspective spiritual practice.
>>574104 desu i don't think it should be made popular; those who can figure it out themselves will while the others can engage each other in their squabbles, where some dumb theologian will try to seek for proof of his texts in modern science or the opposite where a fedoratheist will try to use positivism for... inserting a banana into his asshole
>>573385 >... religious beliefs are eventually described in a metaphysical system
OH, DO YOU THINK SO? (!)
WHAT WOULD THE ESSENCE OF RELIGION BE IF NOT METAPHYSICAL?
THE "POINT" OF THE QUOTE IN THE IMAGE ATTACHED TO YOUR POST IS NOT TO REDUNDANTLY REMARK ON THE OBVIOUS, BUT TO REMARK ON THE FACT THAT RELIGION, AS THE ASPECT OF METAPHYSICS THAT IT IS, IS THE FORM OF METAPHYSICS THAT IS MOST IMMEDIATELY APPREHENSIBLE TO THE AVERAGE PERSON.
>>576851 >Science has replaced philosophy as the torchbearer of truth. So you haven't seen philosophy contribute any knowledge to the world recently? Would you care to define knowledge? Oh wait. That's a category of philosophy. Well I'm sure that with the right use of logic and reason, oh wait. Logic and reason. That's also philosophy. Well, don't worry. I'm sure it won't affect your syllogism. Wait a sec. Syllogism. That's part of philosophy as well.
It's okay. Just keep living a good life, except, well, what the good life is is in the topic of ethics which is also philosophy.
But let's have some fun with nothing. Can you tell me what exactly it is and how it has any causative power whatsoever?
>>573385 Religion is a patchwork monster, which started as one thing and over the years has been changed so much that nothing of the original design exists now. Like a software program that has been hastily updated, but never properly redesigned or reworked, for many years.
Funnily enough its a good example of evolution at work, only it still carries many of its imperfections, much dead tissue and leftovers from times when this or that was useful.
