These people don't bring scripture into science whatever their personal beliefs. I'm wondering if Julian Barbour would endorse people using his ideas in an attempt to bring science into scripture in the particular case?
No. Perhaps not.
But Matrixism does.
"3. Adherence to the principles of one or more of the world's religions until such time as The One returns."
juantoo, just a situation of how your ego surpasses your knowledge.
I expect "Nick the Pilot" is long gone, but what Matrixism advocates is that the chief rebel
knew what would happen if he could get Adam to disobey the Almighty, resulting in a situation of another alternate timeline... wherein Darwin's Evolution would be the situation.
Which we have evolved in.
Jesus referred to him as the, "ruler of this world", with it's predator/prey situation.
.. involving this organic... survival instinct
, and ego.
Which is the real reason for misery on the planet.
While St. Paul was correct in saying "the love of money" is the fault, again, he wasn't being objective enough.
Adam, "the first man", was not like us. The Earth was not like this, since the Fall.
And, "Paradise" is a timeless situation.
"Time and space are modes in which we think and not conditions in which we live."
Cino, if your not going to avail yourself of various Biblical knowledge, how can you really understand Matrixism? You've said you've understood the NDE? OBE's?
St. Paul tells us of his NDE
in 2 Corinthians, in humble manner.
Speaking about himself in the 3rd person. Which experience, he relates, occurred 14 years prior, in the Book of Acts, verse 14:19.
