Thanks to Ned for giving the definitive answer to the great prophet Corky who is suing to erect a monument giving the principles of the religion he invented, that being only fair since a Utah town has a monument of the Ten Commandments. (See the post below). Ned’s handles it by taking the religion seriously, which is a great way of refuting bad ideas. His comment:
Well, if Summum is mind and the universe is a mental creation, why not enshrine that in a mental monument?Plus if everything according to the Summum worldview is in motion, where would we put such a monument and where would we later go to find it?
Also, everything has its opposites. Sounds to me like this monument would be the opposite of the Ten Commandments monument. But wait, opposites are identical in nature, so why have two monuments of the same nature just differing in degrees?!?!?
If these thoughts don’t make sense at the moment, just wait. All paradoxes may be reconciled!
Can you think of other beliefs that can be exposed by taking them seriously?
