What is intuition? Is it not a grasp or understanding came about through experience, and comparison?



Gosh, DP! I'm not sure.... my ancient copy of Webster's defines "intuition" thus:
The power of knowing,or the knowledge obtained, w/o recourse to
inference [that is to say w/o a logical conclusion from given data]
or
reasoning [& here to- w/o thinking with a view to a conclusion believed to be valid; & w/o proofs or arguments resulting from the use of reason];
innate or instinctive knowledge; familiarity, a quick or ready apprehension.

I'm guessing you may be thinking intuitions must originate in the mental process from past experiences we've lived thru. I don't think I totally disagree w/ that, but wouldn't that mean intuition works at a subconscious level? Now I'm wondering, does that still qualify as true reasoning thru comparison as a result of understanding thru experience?
I wonder if intuition is allowable w / in a discussion of required proofs & evidences? Intuition's legitimacy would only come to light after the event or outcome (similar to the prophetic).

its to bad people shut that part of their brain off wen religion is involved.


saying one shuts off their brain because of buying into a religion because of a comparison test between human children & chimps has me scratching my head- but I can be dense at times totally missing connections & segues. Please, feel free to enlighten me.
I would like to counter that, in my own personal religious faith, I would not be able to practice it w /o my brain engaged, but I do think I understand the archetype to which you refer.

I have seen a ghost before in my house, and felt it touch me too. It's a dog. Lol.
When I slept in my old room at night I would feel strange things. It felt often like there was something sitting at the end of my bed. I couldn't sleep in the dark. When the lights went out I'd have panic attacks. I'd flush cold and have trouble breathing.
One night I went to the kitchen for a glass of water because I couldn't sleep. I sat on the sofa and saw out the corner of my eye a dog walk out from behind the counter. it was only there for a second.
It's unlikely I was imagining this because I had never seen that breed of dog before. After a search on internet it turned out to be a jack russel. Smooth coated variety. I'd never seen one like that before.
My mother had actually unearthed some bones from the garden shortly before i saw this. I'm pretty sure the people who lived here before us had animals.

I also believe in haunted objects. I brought what I thought to be driftwood home from the beach one day. On closer inspection it turned out to be a shard of bone that had been weathered down. I left it on my windowsill and at night I would hear rain pouring down on the window. I like watching rain so i went to peek out the curtains... there was no rain. Starting to get weirded out after the 4th or so occurrence of this I moved it to a drawer under my VCR. Even at this stage, nobody uses VCRs anymore, so when it started turning on and off it was so scary...because it's not like i'd left it on and it was switching off to save power. I unplugged it and then the DVD player started switching on and off...
I got rid of the bone soon after, returning it to the beach, and it's not given me trouble since.

A quote from someone-


How would you prove that you aren't just a brain in a jar and you're the only person that really exists, but you're connected up to a computer that makes you believe that other people exist too. This mindset is called solipsism, it's the consideration that your existence is the only thing you can be sure of.

How would you be able to prove that the world did not instantaneously pop into existence at this very moment in the state that it currently is and all your memories of previous times is just the data that your head was made with at the moment the world was created.

This is why it's important to come to conclusions based on observations and not the random suggestions of curious minds. All other things have a null probability or possibility until further data suggests otherwise.


I like to base my opinions from objective evidence.

They are real enough to me, due to my past experiences, so I think they definitely exist.

Spirits do exist. They shouldn't be call spirits. Spirits are all demons. God brought down the fallen angels from heaven who are now demons. They are no good angel in earth. Only in heaven.

An you Base this Superstition of yours on what evidence?
Lets us consider their is a god.... Even if that concept it self is illogical with no evidence backing it up. What is to say God is not the evil one, and the fallen angels are not the good guys who try to over throw the evil dictator you call god?
What makes you absolutely sure god is good?

If I was to tell you I am the good guy and Demand your Obedience or you will be thrown into a pit does that make me the good guy?

That was the best comeback you could come up with?

You did not answer the question. What makes you so sure that your god is the good guy.?

Lets look at history. It is the winners that write history, who to say your God claims to be the good guy but indeed is the evil character who enslaved the angels. An the fallen angel's are those that opposed his evil dictatorship. Can you prove that is not the case?

That's why I say you have not picked up the bible because you would KNOW the answers. Angels are not enslave by God(Jesus), because if they were, Satan and 1/3 of God's angels would have not turned away from him. God gave his Angels free will just like he did to men. So how is God enslaving them, EXACTLY. God gave us free will to either turn against him or to either be with him, and I'm with him. God is testing our faith, life isn't a party, ALL of this did not happen by accident. And God himself is good, NO he is LOVE. A God(Jesus) who is capable in giving us free will is a good guy, instead of makling us robots. The bible says God himself is Love. God who is Jesus who died for all our sins gave us all another chance, that's how big his love . The guy who cured the blind, fed the poor, and talk righteously and in return people bash our loving creator. Why do you talk about this lovign creator that in YOUR eyes do not exist? Perhaps you have doubt.

Yup! When i was about 10 I saw a cloaked figure in my room. I was scared to death but he didn't really do anything but disappear soon after But even before that I always believed angels and demons existed. Not too sure about ghosts though.
