Vedanta or Thomist..?

Both have a significant impact on my perception. Belonging to a family of strong Hindu beliefs and studied in a Catholic Missionary.
(Well thats a different question of hypocrisy m glad that I studied in a missionary)

Vedanta states: The world is, was n will be always the same. There was no beginning to it and there is no end to it. change in centuries doesnt change the world, it is what it was and it will be what it is. We are from the world but the world is not from us. Its one lone entity, a necessary and self sufficient.

Thomism' belief: fiat lux. Worlds an accident. Its just like any other living n non living things. It has a begining and will have an end. Spirituality is simple in its essence. yet twofold, a essence with being, and that originating from accidents.

Be it what ever logical/illogical, rational/irrational, science/belief some questions are unanswered and thence every answer is as true as the other regardless of who states it.

I think Vedanta is as true as Thomist and Darwin wasnt wrong either. There must exist one self-sufficient, efficient cause, that has an answer to it. I doubt if either has an answer : Ram/Jesus/Muhammad.

I agree with your conclusion. They all are equally wrong and the Correct answer to the great riddle of our existence may be one or many. Different people at different stages of our history have try to come up with an answer to the best of there imagination,intelligence and convictions and this the reason why we have different theories at our hand.:)

Hhave a nice weekend.:)

There is no perfect answer to the question of existence and end.

I think within the scope of different ideologies, the answers and the explanations are different. It is our personal belief in either of them that decides.
