I'm a Theist

Post by BardoXV »

More specifically a Lutheran but I listen to a lot of Atheist programs and call-in shows. Mostly I agree with the Atheist as they demolish the Theist who tries to prove the existence of God. I look at the old testament as parabel since Jesus had to learn the practice somewhere.

So do you still believe God exists as real?

Could God exist as NOT real?

So real like the God of Herbert Mullin's who obeyed his very real God to kill 13 people?

Either answer the actual question asked, or do not. Deflecting does nothing for me.

Could God exist as NOT real?

If no, then there is NO use adding the words 'as real' after you use the words 'God exists'.

If yes, then HOW?

But proving God exists is FAR easier and far simpler than proving God does not exist.

The reason WHY the so called "atheist" demolish the so called "theist", who 'tries to' prove the existence of God, is because the perspective from the so called "atheist" they have NO real concept of what God actually IS yet.

The I cannot be a Theist. The I can only know 'theist' as a concept OF I - but not be I - as I cannot be the concept I know.

No ''theist'' has ever been seen, only KNOWN.

The seer of the known is I and I cannot be the known for the known know and see no thing but I

I believe that God exists, beyond that there is very little that I can say for sure.

Most Theists fail at trying to prove God's existence, How could an Atheist have a concept of God if they don't believe in Gods existence?
Why do you use the term "so called Atheist"?
Most Atheists use logic to determine that they have no proof of God's existence but since when does God or the Universe follow Human rules of logic?

If I may suggest a form: Crom, he ain't never let me down (but, then he ain't done jack for me either).
