Hi everyone. i am working on project for a class and for it I am asking some questions on worldviews. If you are willing I would really appreciate it if you would answer these questions for me.
1.What is actually reality? What is really real?
2.What is the world around us? (is physical, spiritual, in our heads, etc.)
3. What are we? What is a human being? What is our purpose, or is there even a purpose at all?
4. What happens when we die?
5. is it possible to know anything at all, and why?
6. How do we know what is right and wrong?
7. What is the meaning of human history? What is its purpose?
Who is the Moving Finger, Davy? I detect a reference – though indirect – to the First Mover of Saint Thomas Aquinas, and the First Cause Argument.
Ghiyāth ad-Dīn Abu'l-Fatḥ ʿUmar ibn Ibrāhīm al-Khayyām Nīshāpūrī (18 May 1048 – 4 December 1131; Persian: غیاث الدین ابوالفتح عمر ابراهیم خیام نیشابورﻯ, pronounced [xæjˈjɒːm]) was a Persian polymath, philosopher, mathematician, astronomer and poet. He also wrote treatises on mechanics,geography, mineralogy, music, and Islamic theology.
So I would say it had nothing to do with christianity. As he was a Muslim.
Full entry can be found Here! It also explains a bit about his religious views.
I was about to ask "Who came first: Khayyam or Aquinas?"
BTW, an egg came first. It found chickens, alligators, fish, birds, turtles, an early homo, and more useful for making more eggs.
In other words: eggs rule this world. They're the masters, and we're their tools.
And scrambled eggs is the vilest form of deicide.
So that's why I like eggs scrambled! I wouldn't have guessed it.
Hearing someone say "Which came first the chicken, or the egg?" I suspect I'm dealing with a person without any scientific (archeological) background.
The egg comes before the fossil,
Fossil fuel comes before snake oil,
The snake comes before the egg... :P
It's terrible that some of the movements in the mid east are destroying antiquity in attempt to destroy history.
The moving finger is a figurative way to describe time. As time moves the acts we carry out are written in time. We cannot go back and rearrange the acts we did in the past. Nor will all our piety or wit can makes us go back and cancel an act we did. No matter how many tears we shed because of an act we did will not wash the act away. As I say the act is set in concrete for evermore!
1. Hard to tell
2. In our heads
3. Mammals;a naked ape; ultimate no individual yes- to live the world a better place
4. I will answer when I die
5. Yes; we are rational- I know am hungry, when am hungry
6. we learn
7. must everything have a purpose to be worthy of pursuit?
