I arise from dreams of thee

In the first sweet sleep of night,

When the winds are breathing low,

And the stars are shining bright.

I arise from dreams of thee,

And a spirit in my feet

Has led me -who knows how?

To thy chamber-window, Sweet!

The wandering airs they faint

On the dark, the silent stream -

The champak odours fail

Like sweet thoughts in a dream;

The nightingale's complaint,

It dies upon her heart,

As I must die on thine,

O beloved as thou art!

Oh lift me from the grass!

I die! I faint! I fail!

Let thy love in kisses rain

On my lips and eyelids pale.

My cheek is cold and white, alas!

My heart beats loud and fast;

Oh press it close to thine again,

Where it will break at last!

and with the careful cosmopition of a simple scene so much can be communicated. A simplistic winter surrounding for the sharp contrast and details of that cluster of trees very complimentary. I also like the set of tracks in the lower left hand corner. Someone has been here? Beautiful! x x

Concerning temples, I was mlotsy just replying to your “Isn’t it obvious that people erect temples to him as a religious instinct to set aside a place where ‘we’ encounter him rather than the other way around?” comment rather than trying to support the original temples comment. However, it seems to me that you are right to say that even if God doesn’t exist it might be healthy to pray I am most emphatically NOT stating that anymore than I am saying it is beneficial for an adult to believe in and send mail to Santa Clause. I was merely stating the implications of your position, which really has nothing to do with whether or not any god actually exists. I was assuming familiarity with arguments in the philosophy of religion for and against prayer… No, you were assuming assumption that those arguments were what you were resting on for support. I was hoping you had something better to offer. We were both mistaken. You continued and thinly veiled condescension is not particularly appreciated.The Pope's position on prayer is no more compelling than yours, and the text linked to focuses almost entirely on defending again Aristotle's position rather than really supporting his position per se. It seems he believes that he has refuted the Aristotelian position (which he also seems to assume is the only serious argument against his position) and that refutation proves that god can and does answer prayers. I'm not being dismissive of Aquinas, I'm being dismissive of the idea you presented, as you presented it. Who originated that idea is of no consequence whether it was Aquinas, Einstein, etc. It is still special pleading, to which you have added argument from authority. The angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees; we know this because it has been empirically measured and observed to be true, not because it is inherently obvious. Your position essentially is still that knowledge of god is self evident for anyone for whom it is self evident (for those knowledgeable enough to recognize it, perhaps). But the whole point is that if god exists, and it's most important and beneficial to know that, then god's existence should be most obvious and evident to anyone for whom it is necessary and needed, not just those enlightened enough to recognize it. You have not addressed or refuted this point.Also, I just add a point here that when discussing theology or religion with anyone, whether theist or atheist, I try to never assume any point, position, support, or reference that they themselves do not make. It is folly to assume any argument or support for such that you do not explicitly make, and it is folly for you to assume I will assume such either. The broad spectrum and lack of uniformity of positions across various people of various degrees of faith has lead me to try to avoid wasting time arguing against an assumed potion that the other side may not actually have. You seem to assume that I should assume what you feel supports your position, or that those sources are so universally and unquestionably accepted as to not need citing as support for your position, which would be folly.For you to say I was assuming familiarity with arguments in the philosophy of religion for and against prayer… leads me to suspect that you have not discussed or argued theology with people of differing positions from yourself much or that you are just not very good at it. In the context of our discussion, I only care about other people's positions if you explicitly cite them as your support for your positions. I don't intend to waste time burning straw men or tilting at wind mills on purpose.By the way, since it seems you've departed from discussing a Christian/Judeo-Christian god to discussing a more deistic (and supposedly logically derived) belief in god, I have to ask, why the use of masculine personal pronouns? I used masculine personal pronouns because that is what you were using, and it reflects the masculine bias of the male dominated religions of the world. Why continue to use language that perpetuates the misogynist concept that a god must necessarily be masculine if you're arguing for some logically derived belief in a god rather than some scripture derived belief? Is your god logically revealed to be masculine?
