If you can see imaginery beings such as God...
why can't you also see trolls, elves, fairy folk, and other wordly beings ect.?
Because God is inside of you. Inside of your soul and heart. It is more like you can "feel" him rather than "see" him. The other ones which you mentioned are all outside of you in other areas.
If they get close enough - even inside - then you can feel them too.
You're not supposed to be able to see God. In Exodus 33:20, God says this to Moses, then passes over him, showing His back. Even then, Moses had to shield his face.
He saw him in he burning bush. You look in the mirror and you see God.
Yea, they nabbed that idea from the Ancient Greece. Seeing Zeus' face meant instant death for Dionysus's mother Semele.
Oh and Adam and Eve and a few others also "walked" with God.
I think the rampant plagiarism in the Bible resulted in many contradictions.
Thomas, I can agree with you there. Not only that but those who manipulated it for money and loyalty of the masses along with control to get those. They still do that today!
I meant no one can see God directly. Adam and Eve did originally, but their sin prevented them from continuing to do so. (Whatever that's worth - none of this saved me from the cult.)
So you said, "but their sin prevented them from..." but you do not beleive that anymore?
I'm just telling you the way the story is in Genesis 3. But I no longer believe it, since it doesn't explain why the plants and animals have to suffer, too.
Okay, because that was a little fuzzy around the edges.
DA-to answer you question to me-if I saw God directly I would die cause he is holy. I do get fleeting glimpses of God in my meditation/prayer time And you're right if I don't see something doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I still believe in Unicorns
Maybe it is because God is real and trolls, elves, fairies are not.
I see him everywhere when I look at the star in the sky at night, when I see the birds and butterflies and other creatures, sometimes when I look in the mirror
So why can you see God everwhere but not see him directly and why would that make other imaginery beings not? There are creatures on this earth that simply do not want to be seen. That makes them not exist?
So what if when I see birds and butterflies and other creatures, I see The Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Leprechauns? Can you prove your perception is real and mine is delusion?
And getitrite can you prove that your perception is real either
Reminds me of a three part episode of South Park called "Imaginationland".
Luke Skywalker is talking to Kyle from Imagination Land.
Luke's pep talk was done as he said "Now hold on, Superman wants to talk to you."
In response Kyle puts a palm to the face while muttering "Oh my god."
Luke responds with "Yes Kyle God is here too, he's going to speak with you right after Captain Crunch."

If you want to see some truly faulty logic, torturous reasoning and mental gymnastics at work, confront a believer with a blatant Biblical contradiction, then sit back and watch them attempt to jump through the hoops of explaining how a contradiction isn't REALLY a contradiction. Accepting these...

I have seen Christians challenge a lot of people to prove that their beliefs are real. In that respect, I challenge Christians to prove to me that their God is real. The Bible does not count as a credible source of information for this challenge either. Use of and quotations from the Bible to try...
