PostSubject: A story / quotation from Aristotle   9/18/2009, 5:01 pm

Found this story about Aristotle that I thought was good info to support a negative argument.

Quote :
The story is told about Aristotle who at the age of 21 was approached by King Phillip of Macedonla and asked to teach his son Alexander, age 11. Alexander, who was destined to become Alexander the Great, was a very bright young man. One day in the middle of a mathematics lesson, as the story goes, he stopped Aristotle and asked: "How many is 1?" Aristotle could have answered that 1 was unity, it was one-half of two, it was two halves, or something else, but instead he asked for twenty-four hours to think about it. When he returned he told his young student, "One can be a very great many." Think about it: as individuals we are a great many people, and we have relatively little power alone. Through a cooperative we act as one, and one can be a very great many

Philippians 2:2–4: “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it
with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor
wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest” (Ecc. 9:10)

I will ascend above the
heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isa. 14:12–14)

I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy
crown” (Rev. 3:11

But he that knew not, and did
commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For
unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to
whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more” (Luke

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge
righteous judgment” (John 7:24) Very Happy
