A bit of sadness creeping in

I visit and write in these forums my views, my thoughts and my beliefs. If someone sees them worthy and adds them to their own I'm proud, I'm joyous and I'm thankful. But when I write and am ignored or have my words rephrased by someone else or worse still when my words are attributed to another no matter their qualifications then I'm saddened because then I'm nothing, I have no meaning, no value to speak of. For whatever reason it has been done it has been done to me and truly I don't understand why.
True I don't have the academic qualifications that others here have, but then I was lead to believe it wasn't necessary.
It's a bit of sadness creeping in that I feel I need to resort to this soliloquy in order to get things off my chest.

Sorry to hear that. This is what happens if we base our sense of value on what other people think. I'm here at SCF for the science but what ails you is a matter of faith. I'm Christian and I find my value and my purpose is based on my Creator's will. Humans are fickle, unreliable, fallen creatures. I know because I am one. We will let you down.

Science is fascinating but is utterly devoid of a basis of human value. Your value comes from outside that realm. You were made for a purpose which requires neither a high personal IQ nor the approval of other humans. You are loved beyond imagining.

I hope you'll feel better soon and that I haven't caused offense. If I could offer a better answer, I would.

Hi Faradave
Thank you for your kind words. No you haven't offended, not in the least. I do feel better now then when I wrote the post.
People are feeble rather than fickle, I tend to feel. We all can be weak at times and take the easiest of course even if it offends. As I had said I don't understand why but it had been done. But it's over and a new day has begun.
Be assured that I will always keep my faith in humanity no matter what happens, I'm too old to change.

I have different belifes and I respect others I am willing to call anyone my friend who consider my belifes as I consider there's I'm searching for more answers and more evidence of the new theory and John if they don't accept you I accept you. for science is for all who study sure I go to college ,but a plumber stood up to Steven Halkings and won a scientific debate. even halkings said the plumber was right. science is for all there's no its only this or this. that means there's even a science For God to which most people think are totally opposite but I've shown in my studies and my blog there not and if there's a flaw email me please I'm making a part3 don't give up on your dreams.

Hi Joshua
Didn't realise your post was here, I apologise as I haven't been to this section of the forum for a while.
Thank you for your kind words, I didn't know about Steven Hawking. Glad to hear it. Hope you enjoy your time hear on the forum. I notice you haven't submitted anything since this post so I look forward to viewing some of your posts in the future. I think they will be enlightening.

Herbert Simons' bounded rationality (an idea that in making decisions we are limited by what we know, how we analyze in some set duration) reminds me the range of my capabilities. It is not very large nor deep. I can interpret that observation as a weakness, and as a weakness it can give some uncomfortable feeling in me. But then wait. I used to have this pattern in the past, but now I managed to recover early and become inspired. As I debate and study in these forums I gradually evolved into something else, and that personal readings and study in relation to my debates change the way I interpret data I receive. I become less and less emotionally attached, and more and more intellectually focused. I regained power in me. This change in interpretation saw the data as something to focus on for improvement so that it was not anymore a weakness but a source of feedback on the area I can improve on with study. I become (secretly) open to expand my knowledge even in very tough uncomfortable discussions.

If I would share a friendly idea, it is this...That what you feel (and it is good that you have open it up with us in this blog - it is a precious pattern because under that is an active consistent mechanism) is something that emerges from what you do unconsciously when you receive data from the outside. You may allow yourself to examine how you interpret various data and how you compare, categorize, etc them using your criteria in your mind. Deep within you is a tightly networked belief system and a part of that is causing you some discomfort when you receive some set of data from the outside. What is already in your mind is correct, what you need to allow is to add something to improve or balance it further so you achieve the emotional states you want.
