God is nice

    God is a nice concept. But in reality? When did anyone see, or touch God? But it's also quite an intriguing fact that many people do find the concept of God interesting, and worthy. Perhaps they are just collectively deluded. I like the way of Tom Cruise. Be in the middle. smile

      Hmm, try to ask this question one of the psychic people, who can actually can see things and gifted since they were infants. Ask them for example, what clothes your grandma used to wear before she passed away, or why your uncle did things he did. Then you can ask about God smile)

      It is written that God is...spirit, love, etc.  Descriptors of a realm other than material or physical.  There are those who say that emotions are what make us humans different from other species.  We are conscious of self in relation to future.  Thus could consciousness of self and emotions be evidence of a non-physical realm?  And, consciousness and emotions can be measured in term of neuroactivity...other evidence?  So, let there be God...in all of us. (excepting the socio-psychos, of course) Just need to keep God in God's realm and out of the supernatural business.

    Or perhaps all the people who say there is no God are collectively deluded? It has to be one or the other, because there are great numbers and great minds on both sides.

      That's true. And thank you for the nice answer. What kind of a mind God himself is? I wonder. smile

    I don't argue with people over God.

    I just declare that God is real.

      So you just want to state your personal opinion as fact and then not defend it or discuss it when it is inevitably countered?   What purpose does that serve?   Why participate in a discussion forum at all if you're not willing to discuss your opinions?

    Lets look at it this way. There absolutely must be a creator. But is our creator a God? That we don't know. This is solid fact: What you cannot see is always more powerful than what you can see.
    If you bust open a copper wire carrying 1000 volts, you can not see the voltage but it will shock the hell out of you. If Someone chops you in the groin, you can see the chop but the pain you cannot see and the pain is hell. Turn off all the lights and nothing will exist, because we cannot see it, but it is there!

      I always thought that "creator" was kind of an alternate definition of "God", at least in the Christian religion (others, not so much).  At least many people use the term when referring to their God ("Our creator loves us", meaning God loves us).

      But your "facts" are a little off.  There is no need for a creator of this universe, and unseen things are very often less powerful than the seen.  A wire carrying 1 MV, or 1000 volts for that matter, is certainly less powerful than a lightning bolt.  An amoeba is less powerful than the fish that eats it.  Radio waves are less powerful than blue light waves.

      That something is invisible to our senses does not mean it is powerful; just that we can't detect it with our bodily senses.

        a disease is more powerful than the humans it kills. And so much more.

          The single bacteria of that disease is not.  And so much more.

          The point is that some are, some aren't.  It cannot thus be used as "evidence" of a god creator.

    God is not a concept. If you have not seen god then it does not mean that there is no god.
