Whale Rider and The Man From Earth.

Joking aside, one way to prevent the infinite regress is to posit an ontological primitive either with something on Kalam cosmology, the Forms or a new term. Most philosophers would grant this except Pyrrhonian sceptics, who will not grant hypotheses (the scientific method by extension). Kastrup did this with TWE as Aquinas did with God.

Yes. I follow. And I'd like to see this developed so the gap is reconciled. Then are the aeverternal Forms causal or acausal? If the former, then what brought about its beginning in such a manner as not to fall into infinite regress (tortoise all the way down as they say). If acausal, then unless we explain further we've still got something that undermines at least one of the premises. A kalam-ity pun intended ;). Also could include an additional premise or modify one of Craig's preexisting argument or reformulate it somehow. Not picking on Kalam. In general, every cosmological argument has this problem.

Kalam Cosmology Argument:

The are points of convergence definitely. One place that might be difficult to explain would be the Platonic forms as those are considered timeless or unchanging principles. But in the umbrella of Kalam, wouldn't the forms have to have a beginning? If so, then they are not Forms per se and some cause must be attributed to their existence. Otherwise, the Forms must be considered not to exist for the first Kalam premise (Everything that has a beginning of its existence has a cause of its existence) to remain true.

I find his influences on the author to be interesting. After crediting Isfet of course, he goes into detail and namedrops certain individuals. The ones that stood out to me that I am familiar with were: Heidegger, A. O. Spare, Carl Jung, Kenneth Grant, Goethe, Freud, Charles Baudelaire, Dante Alighieri, Tolstói, Gurdjieff, and Gilles Deleuze.

Yea. Go ahead and send it if you can. I'll take a look.

There are at least two Spiderman comics that feature Anansi in the mix. I'll modify this post when I find the numbers again.

Gaming / Re: I found a rogue like based on Tolkien's Simarillion.

The Silmarillion is a great work to base a game on.

That thought has occurred to me. Idk. From the outside looking in, perhaps there are cycles when certain individuals in leadership share more to the public. I think of times such as when Aquino, Flowers or Don Webb were either High Priests or Grandmasters. Magistra Hardy comes to mind too.

I think you know what I mean. Some of the replies back and forth here indicates to me that we're on the same page. There isn't really anything that we can do about the past actions that led to the state of affairs with PDFs online. It all comes down to us and how we respond to it.

At the end of the day, it's not our business to tell others what to do or what not to do. Rather, do what you think to be right. Aside from Black Magic, I think I'm doing right by myself not to read it uninitiated but to approach it on its own terms as the authors intended. Others may disagree and that's ok insofar as we are individuals. Either way, we'll both live with the consequences of our own actions.

:\ it is as @Xepera maSet says but ... I would advise that you leave the scrupulous gleanings of said tablets to the rest of the Internet. At the very least, tread carefully as there are eyes and ears in the wind themselves. I don't mean any malice by this sentiment. It's just that I want the forum to flourish for as long as possible without interference.

Welcome, Venus! Great to see you on the forum.

One of the two is not "God". That's established. The other way would be to do away with it and adopt monism.
