      So really then you would have no issue with God if it were just you and him?

        I would have no issue if people would give up human ideas of God, especially if God is so far removed. I've heard it said that God was beyond comprehension, so to me it is fair to say, there are no words, even biblical that could explain God. So then there is the issue of how to handle the subject, I just sidelined it's importance and went on with my life.

        God is not the problem, people are, myself included.

          You know hell is filled with the mind that has plenty words but nothing to say...

          Its good that you admit to it but it would be better when you apply that knowledge positively towards Life....

          You eyes would then open.

          What does "far removed" mean? That He doesn't care about His creation?

          Because if He does care, why wouldn't it logically follow that He would send agents to foster in us what understanding of Him our minds can absorb? Why categorically dismiss divine revelation?

            "Why categorically dismiss divine revelation?"

            Because, outside of the word of the person that got that revelation (and the associated money, power and respect), there is absolutely no evidence that it has ever happened.

            Joseph Smith tried for years to convince people of his revelation and those that know the truth about him have tried for decades since.  Yet few believe the ramblings of that great man - maybe "divine revelation" isn't quite what it is cracked up to be, and we are smart to ignore those "agents" claiming to "teach" us of God?

              Thanks for the backup, I lack the vernacular and syntax to be so eloquent...

                lol  I've seen your posts, and must say that it has been revealed to me that false modesty is a sin.  Take warning.

    Ho-hum. The problem with atheism is  no one to answer to=no consequences. No feeling, for all emotion is guided by the spiritual within, no imagination because you are confined, imprisoned i9n your own false logic. To provide a quote "Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see." Atheism is the self proclaiming it to be the center of the universe...once again.

    If it ain't religion it is politics or government, and they all involve people.
    Until the day comes that the world only consists of the hubber "mischeviousme" and Buddha, the Earth will never be good enough for him...  LOL!

      Why would religion, specifically Christianity, not involve people? What would it then involve? Rocks?

        They are things of the past, I guess moving on is an impossibility...

          That made no sense. Which are things of the past? Christianity, rocks or both?
          Pardon me if I don't seem to want to have a Sphinxlike conversation.

              So basically you don't ever want to or intend to leave your room?
