Could always say that this "future" is only relevant to humans, therefore to our
perception of what we think as time. But you also make a good point here >>4919
If the universe evolves too, it would seem logical that we see here the idea of an objective time, real beyond our own perception.
However, the other anon might have meant that only the infinitesimal now
is real, as the past is already gone and the future has to be created yet, and only an omniscient being could know the past or the future on the basis of what the present is (but would obviously not even need to know the present to do so).
> I do believe in a righteous benevolent masculine spirit, A Jove if you will.
That is definitely a
god, with specific attributes then.
are good although you need to admit that Islam is far more virile than any of the two other main Abrahamic creeds. It literally begs for war whereas the European crusades were grafted upon a theological doctrine that didn't ask for any of it. It's been said that Islam was created as a correction of Christianity and although it does pay lip service to the older books, it also tried to be something of its own.
> Time doesn't exist? What happens if I choose to believe that time exists?
You cannot make such a choice because there is no time. Which means no change. No before, no after. Therefore, not even an opportunity to think about something and decide, and chose and act.
I'm being facetious here, obviously time is
necessary and must clearly exist even outside of our own perception. Time and space go hand in hand. A space without time would be a static thing, which would be absolutely pointless and retarded beyond hope.
