Look who doesn't have the sense of humor. When all else fails, they always resort to attacking spelling.(Thats when you know you really got under their skin) Laugh

Apparently you can't read either. Spelling wasn't the only thing I mentioned. That was just icing on the cake.

Doesn't change the fact you need to go back to skool and get re-edjumucated.

Funny how I've never had a Church mock me about my spelling. God guides kindness, not a mean spirit.

From my own personal experience, I haven't seen one single shred of the tiniest bit of proof. On the other hand, a leaf falling from a tree might be all the proof you need.

Skepticism certainly has its place in all this. Are you that closed-minded that you wouldn't dare seek the unknown? Wouldn't have the courage to even try seeking God because what you find would prove you wrong? You're not even taking a scientific approach in your extreme level of confirmation bias, your bias against God. I certainly wouldn't expect you or I to belief something without proof. I was in your position several times, I assure you.

If there was a mountain being moved from one place to another today, by no apparent apparatus, and there was no evidence of there being alien intervention (i.e. nothing picked-up by our satellites/radar, or seen by pilots, and there weren't any eyewitnesses claiming they saw a spaceship of some sort), then I would have no choice but to believe there was something godlike going on. Not to mention it would be pretty pointless for aliens to do such a thing to begin with.

Godlike? Why must God be some kind of comic book superhero, demonstrating inhuman powers? Ever consider that what you think as godlike couldn't be further from God if it tried? Or that the straw god you are so stuck on imagining is not at all like God?

And if I were drugged I think I'd be aware of the changes going on in my body and mind at the time. If my body and mind felt just as normal as always, of course I wouldn't think I was hallucinating.

But it would be kinda hard to tell the difference between a hallucination and reality, if you were drugged-up all the time, huh At1? Laugh

Hallucinations are real. They're perceptions. I perceive you to be conversing with me and that is enough for me to be proof that you exist, though a far cry from absolute proof that you exist. When I perceived alternate conversations or signs/clues of God, I do not discount them any more than I would discount your existence. In fact, I have more evidence that God exists than I have that you exist.

I seek truth, nothing more. It's got nothing to do with how open or closed my mind is. The evidence leans greatly towards there not being a "God", so I don't believe. If it was the other way around, I'd believe. Simple as that.

Well, if I saw a mountain being moved from one location to another, without the use of technology, I'd say it would coincide with "inhuman powers".

That's a mighty big proclamation.

Care to share this so-called "evidence"?

Too bad you can't follow your invisible friend's example.

What's the matter? You can dish it out, but you can't take it?

See how you phrased that? It really shows your closed-mindedness.

Only some perceptions I have are evidence that you exist while all perceptions are evidence that God exists.

There are primitive definitions of God out there but my definition is that whatever God is it must be all-encompassing. The premise I hypothesize is that two all-encompassing "things" are congruent. Reality is all-encompassing, so God is congruent to Reality.

Like I said, all perceptions are evidence that God exists.

Now you might try to contradict this by saying that the straw-God you have in your imagination clearly can't exist but I am not referring to that straw-God you are stuck on.

There is nothing less invisible than God.
