On the Ignorance and Pride in Heathens/Atheists versus the Eternal Wisdom of God

2021.12.01 20:53 realalexjean On the Ignorance and Pride in Heathens/Atheists versus the Eternal Wisdom of God

I have a little sister who at one time tried to argue to me that her white lipstick from a playset was actually pink. Here was this toddler who had just learned her colors a mere week ago, basically, trying to educate me on colors.
Did she not know that her judgement was flawed? In doubt of everything, but not a doubt in herself. When will she grow in wisdom? At age 15? At age 25? At age 60? When exactly is the point in which man gains wisdom? Her stubbornness reminded me of the contentious questionings by the typical atheist. This is how I view human wisdom. So deep in error that the one in error cannot even begin to know himself let alone know truth. Without sobriety in wisdom in humility, drunk on ignorance in pride.
When a car crashes, the human mind cannot determine where all the pieces will go and where each individual piece will ultimately end up in its lifetime. He cannot know what orientation in which they will be arranged throughout their existence at the time of the crash, shortly after, after clean up, and after they have been laid to rest at a waste area, and perhaps destroyed or disposed or re-used. He cannot know the temperature of each and every piece throughout its temporal existence nor can he ascertain the conditions of its sub atomic mixture which vibrates at that sub atomic level.
The existence of man is a mortal one, limited, constrained. Meawhile, God disposes all things according to His will, knowing what has come, what is now occurring, and what is to come.
Neither can he know all at once all the physical causes and effects in the world. He can neither see the sum of all causes and effects, nor the whole of all causes and effects. Neither can he see the temporal causes and effects in incorporeal objects, such as how jealousy affects his fate or how his love of one passion affects his happiness or how is passion for one thing affects his happiness once taken away. His temporal, mortal view is limited. He is blinded by all sorts of patterns in life.

"Just as when a craftsman perceives in his mind the form of the object he would make, he sets his working power in motion, and brings through the order of time that which he had seen directly and ready present to his mind. So by Providence does God dispose all that is to be done, each thing by itself and unchangeably; while these same things which Providence has arranged are worked out by Fate in many ways and in time..."
-Boeuthius
The physical eye is limited to its nature and therefore cannot hear, taste, nor feel. In like manner, the mental facilities are limited by its nature and therefore cannot see what has passed before its time, what is occurring outside its view, and what will take place. The abilities of God are without such limits.
If a man has limited view, how can he can he say evil triumphs in the world? How can he say that God has no good reason to allow the occurrence of bad actions? Has he seen the end effects and consequences all things? Has he seen the sum of all the parts and possibilities? Has he seen the whole and the final conclusion of the fate of the world including every single human thought and action?
Even, when I was a staunch atheist, I found the notion that the infirmity of my mind limited my view of reality to be an unassailable argument. Mortals only have a temporal view of the world, whereas the eternal mind of God sees all things and knows all things, and there was never a time nor could there be a time when and wherein God did not know all things.
So to ask "Why does God allow evil" has always been a non-question to me, even as an atheist.
Who is man that he should know the ways of God? How is it that a mortal mind living in time can question the eternal mind Who is outside and beyond time?
"If God exists, how is it that evil men are rewarded and good men are punished in this temporal life?"
These are questions on the divine reality by mortals with highly fallible and always flawed understanding of reality. Just as a doctor can properly look at a physical illness and properly diagnose and treat the symptoms with some certainty, it likewise takes a doctor of the spiritual kind to properly ascertain the reality of the divine and spiritual existence. If you have a legal question, you go to a legal expert. If you have a tax problem, you go to a tax expert. If you want to learn about physics, a physicist will teach you. In like manner, on morality and the patterns reality, why do some people trust in their own opinions over wisdom? No one is an all knowing moral expert except God.
And only by serving Him, only by our obedience can we come to know goodness, beauty, love, and peace.
The human mind cannot see the whole of reality nor all the parts in which reality is all arranged. He has a limited view. And so, it is ignorant for the creature to question the creator, the same creature who knows not what hour he will die, nor if he will even wake up the next day. He barely knows himself, yet in ignorance, he has the temerity to blaspheme our Lord.
Are the antagonistic from heathens not the most annoying thing? Being a Christian is already a struggle, but to have to deal with the pride of the heathen and their adversarial sayings falsehoods makes it tempting for me to be reactionary rather than modest in how I treat this, at least internally.
Like, how can people actually ask these dumb questions? It's not even worth answering because if they are asking this, there is no way they will understand sound reason and logic.
"If god real why universe big"
"If god real why I don't see him"
"why did it take God 6 days to create the universe?"
And it really makes me think about my own ignorance--which I pray that God illuminates my own ignorance so that I may see what I ought to see.
What do you make of these dumb questions? I can respect sound, coherent arguments for beliefs I don't agree in, but it is alarming for me to see so many atheists who lack sound logic and reason. It is wholly ironic to claim to be about logic, reason, and facts--yet be so foolish in all of them. You can't laugh, since you would be laughing at the self condemnation of souls. I'm inclined to sorrow, but at the same time, I take delight in God humbling the proud through their own conceit--God will not be mocked.

2021.12.01 20:53 LisneyDand It is my belief that the current backlash against transgender and non-binary people is basically the same as the backlash against lesbians, gays and bisexuals ten years ago, just repackaged

This applies to the United States and the broad consensus on the english-speaking internet.
I'm a cisgender (non-transgender) gay guy in my late 20s. When I was in my teens I saw so many of the same arguments I see against transgender people and non-binary people nowadays, in terms of the arguments' core logic and core flaws, but with 'Mad Libs' style substitutions to make them about the non-T part of the LGBT community. Specific to Reddit, I saw many 'one of the good ones' gays be celebrated for parroting the majority opinion, myself included. It was this weird speculative exercise where a bunch of people not part of the community debated the community's flaws and merits, while amplifying the spattering of voices from within the community that confirmed the outsiders' negative assumptions.
As more and more people realize they personally know someone who is trans or non-binary, I believe things will shift as they did for cisgender gays, lesbians, and bisexuals. There will be a new 'other' to repackage arguments for, and the 'othering' of trans / non-binary people will be relegated from the mainstream discussion to a subset of conservative discourse.

2021.12.01 20:53 I_eat_the_sand Linux on a Chromebook. What are the best options?

Bought my daughter an Acer Chromebook model N17Q8 last year. She is taking a cyber security class this year and really wants to be able to mess around with Kali Linux, specifically learning ethical hacking. From what I've read trying to replace current OS with Linux supposedly causes problems. If we add an SSD to her Chromebook would it make it possible to put virtualbox on it and run Linux? Or is a cloud based VM the only option, other than buying another computer? Sorry, so long. Thanks in advance

I'm curious to see any of your models (preferably the battle suits) and how you have used the streaking grime on them. I was thinking of doing a battle worn army but not sure how it would look when it is mostly flat panels on the model with few areas for grime to build up.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone has been able to do!
