Last thing I need to say... 'God exists'

    You may spend away a life being an atheist, an agnostic, an intellectual under self-deception, a pro-science supporter, an anti-spiritual being trying to make everyone and everything 'scientific' - but - as you go through your life this way - you would (might) slowly approach towards a different reality - like someone emerging from an all-engulfing darkness - towards light...

      Well if god is as is claimed he is then he wouldn't get so worked up about whether or not people believed in him especially that the reason people don't believe is because he has not made himself known to them in a way that maintains their intellectual integrity. It seems to be an odd thing that people think belief is the requirement instead of actions.

        DH, good point from the intellectual perspective, but this whole "game" isn't about getting smarter. It's about waking up as spiritual beings. This requires that each individual make a conscious, feeling "decision" to wake up. It cannot be forced upon us. We cannot be tricked into it with flashy displays of power from on high.

        Like a baby learning to walk, if adults do the walking for them, they will never really learn how to do it on their own.

        Our frustration is part of the learning process.

        Faith needs no proof. Once you perform miracles, then the need for faith is behind you. You already have it. Proof never comes into play. The need for proof only gets in the way.

        Intellectualizing it all removes it from the realm of creation to the effect-based realm of action-reaction, continuity-based reality. This is the wrong place to stand for spiritual reawakening.

        Ultimately, we need to give up the false, ego self. And the way to do that is to love others as yourself. Give to them as if they were you, but never be self-concerned (what am I getting out of this). Take full responsibility for what others do against you. This makes being a victim impossible and makes turning the other cheek effortless. This is the unlimited power of God's Love.

          True that! One needs to control ones own ego and understand that they can't perform miracles.

      You may also spend your life as a theist, going through life deceiving yourself into believing that a creature from another universe will save you from dying.  Or, through time, you may develop a sense of reason, of logical thought, and leave the deceptions and imaginary friends of childhood behind.  You may emerge from a lifelong darkness, into light and  truth, living in reality instead of your own dark imagination.

      Or you may not...

      Isn't it fun to be insulting? sad

      It seems to me that someone who starts dozens of threads about how horrible atheism is may be struggling with doubts. Otherwise why would they care so much what other adults decide to think about the world?

    God may not be necessarily what you think 'it' is.

    Prodio, great points.

    The last thing we need is "proof" of God. Our rescue mission depends on Faith -- not intellect.

    God is love and unlimited, unconditional bestowal. He wants us to have unlimited pleasure, infinite awareness and all the power of creation.

    This takes being love, just like Him. He has no self-concern, so He has no limitations.

        If I start believing in your nonsense, do I get a key too?

    God exists...in the minds of gullible people who need a convenient crutch to answer a question they have no answer to.

      Just cut the brain out and Obey is the key to faith.

      Where to I sign up???
      … yet first, show me how this all makes good sense toward our balance in life and for most of the World who is not even aware of this blind faith as it’s the only right way to God.
