Mark, People seek solace in gods because children are comforted by the thought that mommy and daddy are near, and there is nothing to fear, someone is going to take care of them. The atheist says, come on people it's time to grow up.


I asked what you meant by "The atheist" in that comment.

Now you are telling me that by "The atheist"...you meant "someone who refuses to incorporate other people's fantasies."

So...you refuse to "incorporate" my fantasy of romping naked with Jessica Alba...and somehow that involves people seeking "solace in gods?"

Time to grow up, Popeye.

If you are going to get involved in discussions like this...be adult. Answer my question reasonably.

If you are using the word "atheist" in the context of people seeking solace in gods...tell me what you are actually denoting with those words. As you know, the word "atheist" is used differently by different people.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY IT?

Leadfoot, Did you get this revelation from the talking snake?


The snake was only the messenger.
Kind of a test, to see if we could hear good advice, even when it cost you your life.

Here is one for you. It is a good thing that the wheel was invented before the automobile, imagine the terriable noise that would be coming from the thruway!!

I think it was Willy Sutton who once answered this when asked:

Q: “Why do you rob banks?”

A: 'Because that’s where the money is.'

@Leadfoot,
What snake has legs and is later cursed and made to crawl on it belly in the dust?

In the evolution of the spiritual godhead to this universal generation , who was the Most High in the creation before mankind was given the title of "Lord of Creatures, and who ruled the world for 140 million years?

That doesn't ring a bell for me. I'd guess Lucifer but where did the 140 myr number come from and for what purpose?

@bulmabriefs144,
No seriously, what does the OP's question have to do with Health?

They have a lovely set of 5 or so questions, but it's kinda like one of those eBay items that has a ton of added things to make sure you find it. Neither Health nor General are needed.

@bulmabriefs144,

at one time, anyone could add tags to any thread (no longer the case -- only the OP can add tags to their own thread now).

i wouldn't sweat it -- most new threads don't even contain tags...

@Leadfoot,
"Snake" - Where did you get that concept from?

"Serpent'.

@bulmabriefs144,
Because random folk can add tags to threads. It's a pleasant passtime for some, I guess.

@mark noble,
Jesus is GOD not religion. He is the Spirit;the image of the invisible Spirit , that is GOD. Are invisible things of power? Yes.

@mark noble,
Hello Mark!

I think the answer to this question is more general deep down.
Why do people seek to have a glimpse at what transcend themselves, be it a new discovery in Science, an advance in conceptual knowledge, a great novel, to possess a masterpiece of art, or be it getting closer to a God which is perhaps an encapsulation of all of the other forms of improving who we are to ensure our genes endure longer...I bet bet Froid would place a bet in the maternal womb to...

From Gods and other things like Gods we ask salvation from our inner "ghosts", after all we want to "complete" ourselves, and I don't think anyone is immune to more or less concrete "God" wishing...
