When Einstein was in college, I believe it was Philosophy class, his professor was on the topic of religion with one of the students. After a few back and forth comments between the student and professor, the professor asked this student named Einstein his opinion which led to this: Evil is not Evil. It is the absence of good.Just as there is no such thing as cold. Cold is the absence of heat. And black is not black, just an absence of light. The blacker it is, the less light there is. So sight is not blind, just the absence of sight. Though through the other senses of taste, touch, sound, etc., nothing is blind to those who are absent of sight. They see with their senses that are heightened due to the lack of sight.
As stated by dsenette in post #4:
Einstein's theory of relativity goes along with this...as you reach the speed of light...time for the traveler slows down relative to a fixed point or a point that you pass by on your journey...really heady stuff
This is not the true version of their conversation. Just what I can remember from some time ago. May not have anything to do with "What does a blind person see?" But, it sure explains the possibility of those who can see, yet can not see what those who can't see, can!
Made since to me!
Just my 2 cents.
