Well, that God, at least the God described in the Bible, has an entirely different purpose in mind, one that, although sidetracked for a time, will be fulfilled.


We'll see.

Would she have done it for other kittens than her own though.

The fact that the cat did it for her own kittens indicates to me that she is more worthy of respect and admiration than someone who would ask if she would do it for kittens other than her own.

A lot more respect and admiration.

A LOT more.

@Frank Apisa,
Likewise, I respect that cat a LOT more than anyone who tries to piggy-back on it to settle old accounts...

@giujohn,
It's not God that's causing it, It is the missed representation and interpretation of the people that are seen or heard. You are correct in stating man's advancements in knowledge, but he still fails in how to bring about peace. What is your thought on when you live out your time hear? What is your view after life?

Since it is almost certain that humans created the "God" of which you speak...you are correct that humans are the cause of the stuff people blame on the gods.

We humans have made all the "rules"...and we humans are the ones who violate them.

If the world is an illusion or dream, and we regard Jesus as a 'Master of the Art of Dream Manipulation' it could explain how he was able to produce his 37 "miracles" by bending reality.
And he said we could do it too.
Perhaps prayer is simply "thought-pressure" that can affect reality.

@giujohn,
I understand where you are coming from. But we must really think why we have thoughts of this kind. The word states that: But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1Corinthians 2:14

My contention is that the believe in a god, especially without proof is inherantly destructive to humankind. Any good that might result is overwhelmingly subplanted by the tremendous evil that occurs.



Maybe so, but there are millions of people out there who need to believe in a merciful, caring God, miracles, guardian angels, predestination and purpose...

There are no evil God, and no evil people. Evil is non existent if you just quit letting it be part of our imagination.

That's what Charles Manson keeps trying to explain to his captors.

Chales Manson was a sick puppy, but nothing some understanding couldn't fix. The worst of us require the most love.
