Or so it seems to me. If you disagree...tell me what "beliefs" you have about the actuality of the REALITY of existence...that are not blind guesses.
If you present a reasonable, compelling argument, I am certainly willing to change my position...partly or in total if appropriate.
There are beliefs about gods and reality that are also based on experience, though, so these too, according to your experience criteria, are discounted as being blind guesses.
Whether you change your position or not is immaterial. I'm merely pointing out the inconsistency in your assertion.
But your not happy or satisfied if you don't believe in happiness or satisfaction. You gotta believe in these things for them to work their magic. They are the God.
Why do you ask questions which I answered already? Can't you read my answers?
So you want me to make a wild guess about some dude I never met... Hmmm. Why would anyone do that, Frank? And why would anyone describe that as "thinking"?... Ts ts ts...
Your doubt translate to hate to the faithful mind.
You just don't know yet, because you don't believe. I am on the faithful fastback, I know everything because I believe, you only know what is mainstream science, or knowledge. My knowledge is supped up thank you very much. I have been to Heaven. To call me into doubt is to not know, is to draw hate to me.
Just because I have seen grace and glory and you have not is no reason to doubt me, you mustn't know the good faithful word, and the good passive word. Wind, and fire.
