Re: Cutting God in Half

The universe has been very successful. Until recently it hadn't been evil or loving. God,if he existed, hadn't been evil or loving. What changed? Were you around in an earlier time? How do you know this? Does evil and love affect the physical universe? What science or philosophy would lead to that ...

Re: God is testing us all

3. And god always keeps his promises. Does it? Where are you getting this idea? It follows from the covenant. The covenant never indicated anything beyond some sort of 'salvation'. , there is a dichotomy which you can't explain here, Attofishpi. I'm the one that has been banging on about the dichot...

Re: God is testing us all

The TEST_amen_T is key to comprehension. Please explain what proves there is NO God. Nothing proves there is no god. Nothing proves there is god. Not empirically, not theoretically. Both stances are unprovable, and un-disprovable. Empirically it can be proven to an individual. But yes, atheism is u...

God (or the meme that we attribute to a fanciful existence called god) is inconsistent with his own promise and teaching, the tests are inconclusive, so the test shows that there is no god.

Re: Religious lies. Why do we knowingly accept them?

They are addicted to alternative realities, even though it's just fantasy. They are addicted to having answers to every ultimate question. It's called, being wise. Seek an ye shall find. Don't seek and remain with the unknown. They want eternal life very badly, that they forsake objective reality. ...

Re: Cutting God in Half

Yes, I just think the church preachers are overzealous in their sales pitch to the masses on this notion. I think it's not the people they want to deceive, but they are sucking up to their god. Whether that's self-deception, or else knowingly denying their knowledge, is a mystery to me. Believers o...

Re: Cutting God in Half

Actually, my definition has no faults... but I understand if you say it is not applicable to the god meme we have in religions. Actually, it does, you can't have it both ways. If God loves us like a man, he also hates some, ruling out this absurd notion of 'absolute love'. In fact, the very god peo...

Re: Cutting God in Half

What does 'absolute love' mean? Where are you or the author getting this statement from? Now this looks like you attempting to wangle yourself out of responsibility for backing the statement. I truly am confused by what you mean, 'absolute love', and indeed where this statement is coming from...is ...

Re: Cutting God in Half

The author also recognizes that complete understanding of how absolute power can co-exist with absolute love, is a dilemma which can be solved instantly by letting the worship and belief go.

Yes, but surely you mean something other than all jobs that aren't marketing positions. Really, what are you referencing?

Re: SOCIETY IS INSANE AND I AM LITTERALLY THE SANEST PERSON IN SOCIETY.

This is what happens when you have a barely semi-literate population. 'Normal' (or abnormal) is the word literate people 'normally' use in that context. ''Being 'gay' is abnormal''. Well it's not 'the norm' because it's only about 1 in 10 people. Is Down syndrome abnormal? Is albinism abnormal? Is ...
