Re: Re: How should the Bible be interpreted?
I believe it's hard to truly believe that the Bible is non-interpretal. I think we all (Bible believing Christians and Jews) find the passages that say what we truly believe... or want to believe. It's impossible for me as a Christian to look at Jesus's statements about a new covenant without seeing "new rules" for life. Loving God still comes first, then loving your neighbor as yourself, and then that truly "radical" one - love your enemies (which is in the Old Testament - but not as clear-cut to me). No "except when" is listed there, but if you want those - you find a verse (probably in the Old Testament) that justifies murder of other of God's children. "They will know we are Christians by our love, by our love. They will know we are Christians by our love."
Since the idea of locality is dead, space itself may not be an aloof vacuum: Something welds things together, even at great distances.
- Realists believe that there is an exactly understandable way the world is — one that describes processes independent of our intervention. Anti-realists, however, believe realism is too ambitious — too hard. They believe we pragmatically describe our interactions with nature — not truths that are independent of us.
- In nature, properties of Particle B may be depend on what we choose to measure or manipulate with Particle A, even at great distances.
- In quantum mechanics, there is no explanation for this. "It just comes out that way," says Smolin. Realists struggle with this because it would imply certain things can travel faster than light, which still seems improbable.
E-cigarettes may be safer than traditional cigarettes, but they come with their own risks.
- A new study used an MRI machine to examine how vaping e-cigarettes affects users' cardiovascular systems immediately after inhalation.
- The results showed that vaping causes impaired circulation, stiffer arteries and less oxygen in their blood.
- The new study adds to a growing body of research showing that e-cigarettes – while likely safer than traditional cigarettes – are far from harmless.
