      I hope you do it out loud.

      Does it ever talk back?  Do you hear voices in your head?

          Yeah, I want to hear from those who heard voices too.  Maybe we can convince them to go get psychiatric help.

        i wont define god..it is for person to answer define god in his/her perception...god can be many different thing to different people..for some god may be friend , for some a grand old daddy who punishes or become happy , for some god may be some type of accountant who weighes and judges..so what ever your definition of god is ,you may answer (ofcourse if you want to)...

          OK, I'll answer:

          A fictional being.

          A clever ruse to control the masses.

          A distraction to help people forget their miserable lives.

          An excuse for persecution, torture and murder.

          Want more?

            With a little biblical help. smile

            An invisible fairy
            A figment of an over active imagination
            a myth
            a way of avoiding responsibility for self
            an excuse for not thinking
            a cop-out
            an omnipotent entity that has never done anything
            an omniscient being who can't control his own creation
            a lunatic who wiped out all but 8 of the worlds population
            A psychotic murderer
            a liar

              Oh, and the one I love the best:

              A mystical being who absolves your sins, thus freeing you of any responsibility and fostering the mournful  "I am only an imperfect soul" excuse.  I LOVE that one.

                That is very nice. I just posted this on another thread as a warning to religionists.

      O.K., I don't have a "God", because I'm a Pantheist. I have the entire universe, but yes, I do talk to it. I go out under my oak tree and have quiet conversations with it. I like to feel connected to that power. I talk to nature a lot, and it responds. Nature is tangible, where the Christian "God" is not.

      Am I crazy? Maybe, but touching and talking to plants has been proven to help them grow better. Every living things needs to be acknowledged. I'm sure my neighbors who walk by and see me "talking to myself" think I am.  I'm the neighborhood "crazy plant lady", but they love the flowers in my yard, so they don't complain.

      This is my way of praying, talking to the universe, asking it to send its power down to help me or whoever I'm praying for.  The problem with prayer is that we always get an answer, but most people don't get the answer they want, so they think their prayers aren't answered. All prayers are answered in some way, but it is up to the universe how she will answer, not up to you.

        Plants respond to noise.   You aren't "talking" to them in any sense of the word.

        If it makes you happy to pretend your beliefs are real, I'm happy for you.  The world can always use more happy people.

        We don't need more crazy people thinking some god is telling them what to do - like when dear George got advice on destroying Iraq.

    Whenever we speak we are speaking to God, does He answer back, you bet He does, but most folk are too deaf to hear Him, or obey Him.

    Every word we speak is either a prayer to God or an authority to Satan, that's why we are called to answer for every one of them.

    Selah...

      Except for the cleverer religionists who can hear and "obey him" as they have super hearing and a better understanding of all things.
      Thus like that other fairy story "The big bad wolf" bible bashers have big ears that are "All the better to hear you with" but even better, they can hear the inaudible.

      It must be great to be as clever as you! lol
      When I grow up I want to hear fairies too!

      So if we don't follow your make believe stories, we are demonic and evil?

      Is that how it goes?   And you expect RESPECT for that?

      I don't really believe we have to "obey" anything. I think it's common sense to treat other people well. Karma can be harsh if you don't.

    Talking to god reminds me of that joke about the guy at the party who stepped off the fiftieth floor balcony and just floated in the air.
    The astonished guests all drew breath, then a lawyer who was a bit drunk stepped up and said. "That's impossible!"
    A scientist also well plastered said "That's an updraft!"

    The religionist said "NO IT IS THE POWER OF THE LORD! (religionists always shout)
    "I AM COMING LORD!" then he jumped off the balcony falling to his death.
    Superman leapt back on to the balcony and said "OK, so I don't like god botherers!" smile
