What is it about this word that gets everyones attention? If you want a successful forum post- just name God the founding father of it. Why is that? Why does god get all the attention? It seems that people can't get enough bickering, discussion, debating or conversing about "him". It seems here [on hubpages and all across the Internet] that people can't give him enough credit. One minute its, "Why did he allow the World Trade Center to be bombed?" To the next statement, "Did you see the picture of his figure in the clouds above the World Trade Center sky?" Seriously, did he do it? What the hell was he doing standing over it in the sky? Could be possible that it was just a cloud formation and not God? You know, its like this; I'm now learning he's the great scientist ever. Yeah, right. How about Albert Einstein? Why is God the greatest? I just don't get it. Why aren't we ourselves the greatest and not God?
The answer is contained within your question.
Maybe just because he is named "God". Strangely enough, Einstein believed in him, too.
Just as an experiment, name your next child "God" and see how much attention he gets.
I kinda differ with that idea of Einstein believing in him. I read somewhere that he didn't like the fact that the existence of God couldn't be proved. He was from a Jewish background, like myself, but he actually felt that Buddhism was a Scientists best guess.
I like the child name thing. He or she sure would get a lot of attention when they were older.
Um, I've heard that Einstein was a Pantheist...
I guess everybody's curious about God. Otherwise they won't give nor pay that much attention to Him. I mean why did you create this thread anyway? My point exactly
No don't really see your point. My point was the fact that this is the only subject line that gets any attention. I'd soon people didn't give it credit for being the greatest scientist ever. I'd soon its name was the same name that Prince had for while. You know the name that couldn't be pronounced. So yeah- um don't really see your point exactly.
Good. Neither do I. I just thought I'd drop a really cryptic one to sound profound and infinitely more knowledgeable on the subject. But hey, don't mind me. It's just that the title of this thread caught my attention
See. Put "God" into the mix and BAM! Got your attention.
lol, see what happens when you put "Satan" into the mix.
Yeah right on the money! But I can think of several words that could grab anybody's attention as much as "God" would. But they come with a price. Flagging
Oh no you just didn't. Yep, you did.
Porno. Porno will grab my attention.
I know watch out. masturbation and pornography will make you blind
The reasoning for banning such a Hub still makes me a bit crazy!
you are a sinner Pest, go flag yourself for thinking such perversions of the body
Who's banning this hub? What?
Chris dude are you banning this hub? Or flagging it? Why? For what?
Let's just say RK that we are not alone! There are OTHERS
What the freak are you talking about man? You ok? Did your mom'ma forget to tuck you in tonight? Ah.
What are you talking about? If I don't get a clear answer and instead receive a degenerate answer again from you- I'm gonna flag you.
sadistic pleasures are not funny, they will lead you to hell
I will pray for your soul, there are no bus tickets, just express trains
i am going to hell then!!! Dammit! I cant beat off, I cant smoke, i cant drink, I cant fart in a board room meeting, I cant fuck the bosses daughter!....
LOL!!! Flag wars!!! what an a**. are you cereal???
There is God and there are those who play God in HubPages. We call them dementors or, yes, Flaggers They stick a flag up your hub's sorry ass when you as much as hint at masturbation. And they won't let up until your hub looks like the effing UN building for having so much flags. We cool now?
I've been trying to tell BDazzler that I can't see. Must have been this very reason.
so stop touching yourself and maybe your sight will return and you can see God more clearly in your life
I took the nipple clamps off, the tears went away, but i am still in a fog!
You must join my cult following to prove your sincerity!! then buy my book!
serves you right, but when did the watchers flag these off color comments?
There are guidelines for what's flaggable and what's not. Read up
Oh please Cris. Whats your problem? Obliviously you are in need of attention. Has your God forsaken you? Has he not been paying enough attention to you?
Thank you for the answer. Wasted space. Well now thats a good characteristic to draw attention to oneself. Yeah right.
I honestly don't get it. At the risk of sounding stupid, enlighten me please
Hang on Cris. These outbursts have rather become a signature. They happen, and they pass!
Now there's a familiar voice. Hey Sidd! Okay, I'll let it pass. Thanks for the advice. Much appreciated
On second thoughts, it would have been fun if we had let you be enlightened : . Awww, I came in at the wrong time!
My apologies. Are those "outbursts" mine. I didn't know I was being LOUD! My apologies. I'll curtail my intake of Starbursts?
And Sidd- did you read all of Cris's responses before you posted you referendum? Thanks I didn't think you did.
LOL Okay this is getting out of hand. So what did I say that upset you or you think was made to grab attention?
I think you just nailed it. I'm not upset. Nothing you've said has upset me in the slightest. That's what keeps grabbing my attention. I am finding this to be pretty comical. Apparently Sidd the man didn't. But that makes no difference. Its still funny to me.
It seems you and I both are having a hard time in communication or it could be that my starbursts have kicked in.
yall are just twisted, God gets the attention cause no one can exactly define Him and they spend time trying and arguing with others when they don;t like someone else's definition of God.
Stop. You two are too much. I've got to play some b-ball tomorrow morning at 8:00a. Nite all. Sweet dreams.
Anyways, I gotta head out of work now, maybe I'll be back in a few if i don't stop and get drunk between here and my house
I do every time I post a new Hub! Look what it got me!!!
it got you an even bigger rep, so your prayer was answered, and everyone remembers that hub, its infamous and will never be forgotten
Ya, look where it got'cha? I lost my first two games. I'm a big brother and I have a kid that plays. He's got the potential to be great, but, he's one of those kids that needs to lose the chip he wears on his shoulders. I paid for this kid to be a member of an elite basketball team. $325.00 bucks. I'm a full-time student. That's a lot of money for me. But anyhow, he's really good. He's got this attitude though, I can't take anymore. Today he started mouthing his coach, right and of course that got him no where and my ass chewed out. When I went to talk to him about it, his response was, "I hope he does kick me off!" I ways like- "F" you kid! You unappreciative little shit. I really lost my cool. I think I'm done helping poor kids. I'm sick of the shit it gets you into. Man. To think, 3 days ago I bought this kid new basketball shoes. Cost me $90 bucks on sale. Shit. Kids. He's got a game at 6 tonight. I'm really thinking about not showing up. If anyone out there thinks they can make a difference- I've got news for ya- you can't.
Oh, BS, RK...
Kids will be kids. I happen to live with two of them--boys (not my own). When they do stuff like that, it is usually a cry for attention. And these kids aren't 'poor.' Well--they aren't poor materially, but they think they are (their psychology is--as their mother was kinda weird).
It sounds odd--but sometimes I think boys want their dad or whatever kind of figure that is to 'loose their cool.' Proves something to them--as long as you do it in an appropriate way. I've seen this scenario played out a few times this year. I think some kids are different (sure as heck wouldn't have worked on me, ie), but I think sort of an authoritarian stance (at times) is what some of them need.
Awful lot to tackle as a Big Brother, though.. But if you screamed at him (lol), as strange as it sounds, it was probably the right thing... I'd show up at his game & I'll bet his attitude has changed.
"If anyone out there thinks they can make a difference- I've got news for ya- you can't."
Why not give him the money for yourself and let his problem be his problem.

Why does God give children to those who abuse them? This has been a question that I have been trying to find an answer for. Discussing this through the years I honestly am looking for a true understanding of why? There are many in the world who would love to have children however they will never...

You see lets make it very clear on this particular question, If the God you believe is in the skies, heavens, or somewhere only HE can see us. Lets say this statement was true. Lets also say, when we Pray for something we want and he makes it true. DID YOU PRAY TO BE BORN? DID YOU CHOOSE TO BE IN...

Why does God need worship?
