Woman Claims to Own the Sun
By John Farrier on Nov 27, 2010 at 8:30 pm

Angeles Duran, a woman from Spain, has laid claim to the Sun. She argues that there’s no international law to prevent her action:

Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our solar system.

There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.

“There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first.”

ROFL

So my 2 Part Question - Is there absolute truth and who decides.

Im with you there. It is extremely difficult to discuss these issues without ultimately falling on God. Though Christianity is what I believe, I respect others who earnestly contest for their own faith. But as ecumenical as I'd like to be, Scripture teaches otherwise. And as much as I don't want to sound imposing, that's just the nature of such conversations. And I assure you I am not. And as majority of people believe in something, I don't think it hurts to talk about God once in a while even in a secular "Off topic" forum. :D I'm always up to debate these theological issues and if Roman Catholics, Jews, Islam, or Hindu's want to join in please feel free. I'd like to hear your position on truth and God as well. Gn guys!

I guess at this point I might say that I'm a Christian. And I do apologize if I stepped on some toes. The truth is everything to a Christian and I am no exception. It is the truth that saves, truth that sets us free and ultimately truth that gets us to heaven. It is something I am very passionate about.



I appreciate your indept answer. I'd go a step furthur and say it's like two flies discussing human anatomy. :p I wholly agree with that statement you made above. I've heard many people say what they think about God. But any opinion that man has about God is irrelevant. Man cannot know God, no matter how hard he tries. He can't know God because he cannot escape the confines of a natural existence and leap into the supernatural dimension. True wisdom, ultimate truth regarding God, man's destiny, and salvation is not known to man's mind. Yet all the religions of the world are efforts on the part of man to find God.



As mentioned, Christianity teaches that we can't find God and that He finds us. In Luke it says "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. " You mentioned, we are not able to transcend our system. Paul in Romans tells us that ultimate truth is outside the boundaries of the wisdom and the philosophers of this era. If human wisdom cannot find God, then the only way man can know God is for God to reveal Himself to man. In Hosea, it says this, "For I desired mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings." In other words, that's what pleases God. For us to know Him.



Historic orthodox Christianity down to it's roots in Judaism never worshiped an animal nor any creature. There's a verse in Romans that goes like this. "For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator" Idol worshiping is as old as the Bible. [All the way to Genesis] But you're right, those "concepts" of God by many religions outside Christianity indeed may have gone through many changes. But Scripture teaches that the truth of God is not subject to change. Much less by worldly opinions. Though our understanding of the truth can be refined and sharpened by study of the Scripture, truth does not change.



Someone once said we all have a God shaped vacuum in our hearts. And that is absolutely true. Because our deepest longings and desires can only be satisfied by God. But when God of the Bible is mentioned in all His full attributes such as justice and wrath over sin, people run. No natural man wants a moral judge over their lives. And hence we shape and mold God to our likings. Without God, there is no objective standard of measurement as to what is right and what is wrong. Everyone is free to do whatever they please. It is amazing to see the world philosophies in all it's stages lead up to what we have today. Modernism, postmodernism, moral relativism, atheism. And I know that our Christian message is directly in contradiction to the reigning philosophy of today. But the most loving thing a Christian can do is to proclaim the truth.

I hope you guys understand that my relationship with God is very important to me and I just can't be indifferent to it. And I really believe that the knowledge of God revealed to us in the Bible is the key to everything that matters. Why we're made, where do we come from, where we are going. I'm not saying I have answers to everything. If my monitor breaks down just becaues I'm a Christian doesn't mean I can fix it. :p

Personally, truth is the most defining reality in my life. to know the truth and to live in it. Frankly, i'm a bit shocked that there were no mention of God in the equation. Can truth exist apart from God? Without an eternal ominicent, and omnipotent God who created this reality, this universe, as the source, as an objetive standard, everyone can do what's "right" in their own minds including Hitler and Stalin and we have no say in that whatsoever. It might be wrong for us but it was right for them. Take the suicide bombers for example, if there were no absolute truths then what they did was indeed right in their sight and they should keep on blowing themselves up. But it's not. What these men did were wrong morally to it's core. Morality, Truth and God, now we're talking :lol:

And that's a contradiction. You telling us "that's the truth" is an absolute statement which is supposed to be true. Therefore, it is an absolute truth and "There are no absolute truths" is false. :lol: There are such things as absolutes. There are also things that are relative, but if everything were relative then it would be absolutely true that everything is relative, and that would be self-refuting. So saying that everything is relative can’t be true. Likewise, if everything were absolutely true, then we couldn’t have such things as personal preferences or things that change. Relative truths can be things dependent upon each person.

Another couple more truths I would like to bring up.
Seven is always greaten than Six.
It's always true that something cannot bring itself into existence. :lol:

hehe ^_^ you see, I have no problems with some things being relative and subjective. These are open for personal debates. But I believe Truth is not relative. It's actually redundant to call truth absolute because truth is absolute. Francis Schaeffer once called it true truth and found that to be redundant as well. Let's not get Truth mixed up with a personal standard of measurement. :lol:

The Rose That Grew From Concrete by 2Pac

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared.

Exactly. I don't understand why all this sensational talk is even necessary. Lincoln once asked a child if you call the tail of a dog a leg, how many legs does it have. The kid said, 5. Lincoln answered back saying, it doesn't matter what you call the tail, there are only 4 legs. :lol:

i personally believe there to be absolute truths. and it's not a matter of personal interpretation.
absolute truth is bascially a synonym for the way things really are. on a side note, if a person
believes that there is no absolute truth, that is a contradiction in itself. Why? Because the
statement there are no absolute truths is absolute. Happy Sunday! ^_^
