    Default How to think about God.

    The first distinction is between monotheism and polytheism
    Whether there is one God or many.

    The second distinction is between a personal God or impersonal God.
    A personal God has features of human consciousness. An impersonal God is a principle or activity.

    Third is God as creator or God as a being.
    A creator makes the world itself. God as a being is not the cause of the universe.


    For example, an atheist could deny monotheism but be a polytheist.

    Eternal separation by a Divine entity, or eternity separating each ancestor as biologically centered as timed apart evolving here now?

    What do creation theology and evolution theory have in common? They never discuss the kinetic self evident view of life only existing as timed apart individually here spontaneously since conceived simultaneously mutually evolving until decomposed regardless which generation passed through the moment here reproducing the lifetimes adapting in the moment where geographically displaced...
    Every brain born has a lifetime conflict with ancestral displacement and intellectual social position within the population present. Why, life is a compounding connection between inception, conception, death, extinction life doesn't exceed what exists now.

    I get accused of that all the time by those misdirecting everyone else from a universal constant kinetic flow of compounding DNA in sequence to appearance of ancestral positions directly proportionate to global population of each species in the food chain o this atmosphere living separate lifetimes now.

    why is it those keeping secrets mislead those willing to believe anything is possible for a fee, then tell them nobody knows how life actually works timed apart now occupying space as one of a kind here. All the deflection, distortion, disruption, destruction against non compliant individuals by mob rule demanding possibilities rather than understanding of absolute results sharing the moment as ancestrally passing through living one reproductive cycle at a time compounding into those still adapting between max of 5 generations deep to ancestrally here.

    why do people conceived as unique individuals that never existed before conceived and never stay the same form as arrived a fertilized cell evolving until decomposed. 7.8 billion existing as timed apart here.

    You ignore how life works in plain sight and within all the intellectual governing for better tomorrows 90% of the population is in distress over race, creed, color, national origin, gender bias, gender preference, human rights, rank in social order, political leaning, spiritual conviction to character counts and genetic displacement doesn't matter on the higher intellectual plane while genetically mutually evolving in plain sight.

    Honesty is rare and always ignored. 2,021 years ago there was this one guy................shame the history doesn't reflect what he was actually teaching social identities about since the western world's super power nailed his ass to a cross to only 300 years later use his story to convert from a political state of mind to spiritual contextual soul saving institution that converts reproductive sole displacements from using their individual brain into working as one mind 5 generations deep.

    Power of suggestion corrupted into persuasion of power through "Do as we say, not as we govern, or else.".
    Every brain born has a lifetime conflict with ancestral displacement and intellectual social position within the population present. Why, life is a compounding connection between inception, conception, death, extinction life doesn't exceed what exists now.

    How so very presumptuous.
    I intend to make it all the way through next year so that I may fully enjoy my 2022 NUDES IN NATURE calendar.

    Yet the one person who does here you consider a troll. Typical. No point in even attempting a half way intelligent discussion with you about anything.

    Lots of intelligent discussions going on. You clearly ignore them.

    I am reminded of the Mind Molders who write headlines of the sort "Everything you need to know about XYZ".

    Vox was one of the first to do this constantly.

    I will decide what I need to know.

    Discussing religion is inane, to use the Platonic design, you either believe in some form of Higher Being or you don't, and all the attempts to rationalize faith or attack faith is a waste of time

    You should read Plato, then. Because you know nothing about him.

    Not true, faith falls exactly into Plato's realm of concepts, in fact, he has God as its' highest point

    Where does Plato talk about faith? Again, I don't think you ever read Plato.
