Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

If you will do this, then we can LOOK AT and DISCUSS "this". Don't wait on me. - I’d rather stick with the OP, but don’t let that stop you from pursuing your tangents. - Here’s something that relates to the OP that you may want to contemplate, which will give you a break from the helm. - If you are...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

However, saying, "greater reality" is, to me, an oxymoron. This is BECAUSE there is OBVIOUSLY ONLY One 'Reality', so there can NOT be, NOR could ever be, a "greater" 'Reality'. That's right. The reality simulation includes less of reality, than reality. It is a lesser reality. Reasoning already pro...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

What is the difference between existing within a Reality Simulation and existing within a Creation? No reality simulation can encompass reality because the simulation creator is apart from the simulation, within a greater reality that includes the reality simulation, and the simulation is not the c...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

"Anyone who thinks we exist within a creation is also saying that we exist within a Reality Simulation." Often Christians argue that we do not exist within a Simulated Reality while maintaining that we exist within a Creation. What is the difference between existing within a Reality Simulation and ...

Re: Another FREE WILL thread.

You must read more carefully. The term "had to ," is a somewhat subtle commentary on your lack of free will. In other words, you had to start the thread at the moment in time that you started it. You could not have done otherwise, given the conditions. Just as you could not do other than call me an...

Re: Now listen carefully, this is my God explained.

Sheesh. Folks say they they want to know the truth. But, that's not necessarily true. Quite a few don't. Quite a few simply want reinforcement of belief, and boy howdy, don't cross someone's belief.
