YHWH is male, His wife is Ashira.

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Or Stalin's. Or Mao's. Or Pol Pot's. Or Castro's. Or a lot of people's, really. Stalin was a christian who studied to become a Priest! Pol Pot was a Buddist! All became avowed Atheists and Communists before they began killing people. Add Mao to that list. And Maduro, and Ceausescu, and Milosevic, a...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

The non-theist doesn't believe in a god that he needs to hide or be shielded from! That's the point! "Don't believe" doesn't change his real situation. He's then nothing more than a man in denial. It is possible to be open-minded about "reality"... to accept that it varies for everyone... No, that'...

I tried to explain it on a previous post but you rejected it then so will again
I didn't "reject" it. I made no comment on it at all.

You seem to believe that there is something deep and important about denying the difference between isness and existence. To each his own.
I said no such thing.

But you seem to be bursting with desire to tell me about it, because you brought it in from nowhere...Go ahead.

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

I'm sorry I.C., but the convoluted and evasive nature of your communication FROM MY PERSPECTIVE does not inspire me to share such personal experiences during this discussion. At this point, I do not trust you to handle such information with honesty and clarity. I think you would distort it for your...

Re: Let's talk about GOD!!

God is simultaneously one and three. I appreciate meeting all those who have come to experience how this is possible. Only a triune God is self-existent. You mention metaphysics but deny it by remaining closed to the idea that God is simultaneously one and three. Not "close to." Dead on, as a matte...

Re: Let's talk about GOD!!

You stated something (God) IS self-existent - because it is 'triune'. To me, that implies you have a comprehension of this entity via physics - beyond a philosophical comprehension of it. I was speaking logically. I was speaking of the problem identified by Eastern thinkers, with the idea of singul...

Re: Let's talk about GOD!!

Only a triune God is self-existent. Spoken as if you understand the physics behind the nature of reality...leaving ALL physicists behind in the puzzle. Physics? I didn't even mention physics. I have no idea where you're getting that. I'm talking meta physics....and logic. Do you know God exists, or...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

If something has not been proven to YOU, would you say that your mind is closed to it...or simply that it has not been proven to you? I would say a couple of things. Firstly, its not possible that an Atheist can have "proven" that God does not exist... I asked you that simple question above,...The ...

Re: Let's talk about GOD!!

I.C I think i know why you see God as a HE And that is...? But I'll tell you the answer. It's very straightforward. The Biblical God is revealed, both in Torah and by Jesus Christ Himself, as "He," and as "God the Father." Male predications and pronouns are associated with Him throughout the Bible,...

Re: Let's talk about GOD!!

From the internet ... The philosopher Michel Henry defines God from a phenomenological point of view.... Process philosophy and open theism. Process theology and Open theism. I'm here. What was the question? Are we continuing from the "Does God have a gender" conversation, or now debating Open Thei...

Each or EVERY one of these ASSUMPTIONS being made here could actually be true, or they could actually be completely and utterly wrong, or partly wrong. I've got your number. I know who you are -- psychologically, if not personally. You spelled a lot of it out in your self-introduction, but I alread...
