Left Brain Christians


#21

I don’t really accept the left-right distinction.

That analytic assertion suggests I am left dominant but in fact I don’t believe much in:
(a) absolutes (I believe in “its the best model/approximation” we have so far
(b) dogmatics (there are usually exceptions methinks)
© analytics (there is often more than one possible explanation so one cannot be too dogmatic and need to take analysis with a grain of salt.)
(d) facts - hmmmn. (The most important ones cannot be proven)

But as others say, the right left thing is debunked isn’t it?


#22

debunked by a left brainer for sure


#23

strictly speaking as a right brainer, I never rule out any possibility. It may or it may not.


#24

Oh Tom Aquinas. Him and Saint Aristotle started the whole left brain thing, all those years ago.


#25

Hmm…, yes, but…
It seems that a logical/analytical/fact-based attitude (left) is much closer to skepticism, and because of this to relativism (see also casuism). On the other hand, sentiment and sentiment-based faith (right), being more “devoted” and “absolute” is more close to a dogmatic perception and position :wink:


#26

I am not sure (as in “isn’t it”) … that’s what denies the appellation “dogmatic left brain”).
Sure I am left brain…as well as right brain. Its a yinyang balance.

OR, in left brain dogmatic jargon:
“Its not always simply a matter of either/or but sometimes its both/and.” … I feel :rofl::joy::rofl:


#27

Emotional appeals and resorting to “feelings” tends to make me scoff at whatever is being discussed. So yeah, “left” brained I suppose.


#28

I feel you are going offtrack :slight_smile:


#29

I fried my left brain long time ago. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#30

I feel like I’m getting more left-brained as I get older. I used to be a righty in grammar school.


#31

What about Southern Hemisphere Christians?


#32

Where’s my Southern Hemisphere Christian Thread ?


#33

Maybe you said something that you shouldn’t. CAF police is watching.


#34

The left-right myth has been shattered just like the myth we only use 10% of our brains.


#35

Given my interactions with the public through my job I contest the results of 10% usage being a myth in all cases.


#36

10% of not very much is almost nuffing!


#37

Turns out, most of us only use 2% of our brains!

ba dum tss


#38

We use spiral thinking - left, right, left-right-left sir.
Northern cranial hemisphere Christians spiral in the other direction - right, left…

Time to pull the plug on this … and see which way the water spirals down the hole.
