The world has seduced us into thinking that everything is measured by how much some things cost. I ran into a similar situation when I had the affrontery to suggest that science is a closed system. The words we use to describe what is around us carry different weights for each person. Each person hears the word, “God” with the totality of who they are during their life journey. Words like “Faith” “belief system,” and scientific thought, all are based on what that experience has been for them. You know you have an opponent when their response is more cussing than discussion. It probably means they have no answer for it or don’t know what you mean but are too proud to say they don’t know.
Everything we do, every action, even each thought, has consequences. That is what I mean by the idea of cost. Here are some of my ideas.
