Is there a God? If so, what is She like?

Don't feed the Troll.
Or keep feeding him until he explodes...some animals will eat until they die, donkeys are one of them if I am correct.
If you have the fortitude to do so, please with my permission, I don't have that kind of patience.

Please, "The Ouzo Prophecy" is a four-page paper, more than half of it double-spaced, with wide margins top and bottom, left and right, with plenty of white space. I will tell you this, when I submitted the paper to Writers Digest for a critical review, the professor of English who critiqued it said, "I read your paper, re-read it, and then read it again. The average person wouldn't know what you're talking about, what the point is, what you're trying to say. He then referred to a letter the author of Madam Bovary wrote to his girlfriend (which can be found on the internet). The author said that what he really dreamed of writing, if such a thing were possible, is a book about nothing, a book unrelated to anything outside itself, that would exist by the strength of its own internal style, like the sun seems to hang in the sky without any means of support. The professor said he thought "The Ouzo Prophecy" virtually accomplished this. He said, "Your paper is something, but it's only something, and I reluctantly confess, I'm not at all certain what that something is."
Again referencing other people not only is a fallacy of authority (why should I believe you because someone else, I don't know, says so?), but it also proves your prophecy is not understandable. If it is not understandable, except to you, does that mean it is strictly a message to yourself? What type of prophecy is that?

Present the paper or present the argument.

Please, when the spokesman for the Spiritual Counterfeits Project, an extremely conservative Biblical organization, read "The Ouzo Prophecy," he said, "What can I say? Your argument is fascinating, tightly-reasoned, for sure. But I have to wonder, is it true?" He was referring to the argument that I am Bob the Baptist, precursor of the Second Coming of Christ, whose name is Tor, that I can offer the world salvation in a game called Ouzo, and that the Holy Trinity is Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ and Ouzo Cross. Either the spokesman for the SCP needed psychological help or he was the recipient of divine intervention, don't you agree?
I am leaning towards the former.

Please,
The respondent was panning you in an effort to get you off his back and not reply. He was saying the letter was nonsense and said nothing of consequence.
Please, you obviously know nothing about paid critiques.

Please, you're not interested in reading "The Ouzo Prophecy," so let's stop wasting each other's time.

No ad-hominums, we all had enough of those...they are tedious and boring. Post the paper, either as a thread or link...do it "prophet".

Maybe you should look up the word "ad hominem," my friend.

You claim not only our ignorance but also that we do not want to read the paper. Attacking the nature of our desires is ad-hoministic along with any corresponding mental states. Post the paper or a link.

Another ad hominem from Bob who only knows name calling, not how to argue and is wasting more of our time.

He is a "prophet" I am sure God will inspire him to write one out of thin air. Forget the prophecy as a miracle, seeing this paper alone will be one.
