how do you think?

Hi my atheist friends!
I think It will make a good discussion.
When I think about the one true God, I think; no picture comes into my mind; that is the reason why we don’t need any picture or idol to grasp the personage of our one true God or his truthful messenger prophet named Muhammad.

Thanks

 

That’s interesting Paarsurrey, thanks for joining the discussion. Do you think you generally think more in words than pictures?

 

In dreams one sees the pictures; in everyday life I am not sure what we do; of course we see things that generate ideas and thinking; but if one has a conversation it is the words.

Thanks

  1. The first four verses of the first chapter of the truthful religion mentions the four fundamental attributes of the one true God; i give the same:

    [1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
    [1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
    [1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,
    [1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.

    Now when I ponder on these attributes;Gracious, Merciful, praiseworthy, Lord of all the worlds, Master of the Day of Judgment; all put in one personage in absolute terms; no picture comes to my mind. What I get is that I have a temporary consciousness for sure but there should be some personage who should have caused me this life/consciousness; that being should be conscious in absolute terms.

Some of us think in pictures, some of us in words, and most of us use a variable combination of the two depending on what we’re thinking about. So, some of us can think of abstract concepts without doodling a picture in our head. An example of this might be, I don’t know, an all-powerful creator that exists behind the celestial curtain. There’s nothing to visually guess about such a being, so those of us who think in words to some degree, are probably happy not making up a picture in our heads to accompany the notion.

For any of you shocked by this information, or for any of you who might think I’m making it up, here’s a quote from Wikipedia to make it all sound more serious:

Visual thinking is the phenomenon of thinking…
