Little do you guys know that your blasphemous comments will be presented to you on judgement day, never think your actions on 'the internet' are not witnessed.


God, ATS's Super Super Mod. What a shame you fear god so much. Even harder to believe people in the 21st century still haven't wavered from this line of thinking.

No, you can believe in the flying spaghetti monster for all I care but you can't tell people God's going to punish anyone for anything. If anyone thinks they've got it figured out, you can be guaranteed they don't.

God looks a lot like you. According to the bible God is light and we are created in his image. What do you see? An image of light that reveals your body and the world around you.

FlyOnTheWall has it right, God is the life force within you.

All I'm saying is it may not be wise to call God a " a female Indonesian dwarf" as some other crazy stuff I've read. But then again you are right, speech like that would only come out of the mouth of people who fully denied God's existence. Btw I never said they will be punished for it, I said that these comments will be presented to you on judgementday i.e you may one day stand infront of the one you called "a female indonesian dwarf". Only the all-mighty can decide who to punish for what sins, all I was here for was to warn those were willing to listen.

If there is a creator God it would be impossible to physical see them because they could not exist in the physical realm.It would be like Mickey Mouse trying to physically see Walt Disney.Walt cannot physically enter Mickeys 2 dimensional world nor could Mickey perceive Walt as a 3 dimensional being.The only way Mickey could perceive Walt is if Walt would reveal it in Mickeys mind.Any imagination(image) Mickey creates would be false and that is essentially what has happened with humans that are religious.

The “God” the religious person perceive is created in their minds by their imaginations belief through faith (religion).If the creator God revealed themselves to a person they would not believe but would commune(communicate and know)the creator God.

John stated none has seen(perceived) of the father the creator God at any time by religion(Law of Moses)because because it is impossible to perceive the creator God by religion(belief through faith).The only true perception of the creator God could be through revelation grace BY the creator God through communion(not the religious ritual).

But my point is, there may not be any consequence for anything. And something like insulting the "creator' whatever it may be, would be very very insignificant. The line of thinking I referred to is over 2000 years old. What would the bible look like today if it was re-written? Probably much different with concepts so far out the bible wouldn't even be recognizable. There would be discussion about quantum physics, holograph theory, multi-universe etc. God in the traditional bible is petty. Now, I just said god is petty. Do you really believe an omnipotent being would get upset by lil ole me saying that when the universe is practically infinite? Think about it. Like one little grain of sand saying "bs".

The fact that people are still hanging on to an ancient text to dictate the way they should think is so beyond god if there is one. I don't know what god is or if it even exists, but I can be sure it does't really give a fack. Much much more bigger issues to be concerned with. Don't you think?

God's at that awkward stage, clumsy, all legs and arms, still growing into his body. His voice is still changing and he has these scraggly hairs on his pimply chin and cheeks, too sparse to shave but too hairy to ignore! He spends lot of time alone in the bathroom. His mom and dad are a little worried about him, but deep down, they understand it's just a phase.

What is God's appearance? I am talking about the creator God of Genesis, YHVH or El Elyon. Most depictions appear to show him as an old man with a beard sitting on the clouds. I am wondering how accurate such a depiction is. Is there anything written which gives a description of God's appearance?

According to the apostle John the Creator who is referenced in Genesis is "The Word" which was the incarnated Jesus.

John_12:45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

What does that mean?

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Col 1:15-17
(15) Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
(16) For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
(17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Those who looked upon Jesus looked upon the Creator incarnated as the Word of The Most High Father.

Kind of like Santa I suppose. It seems like the main god of many religions looks similar. Probably all the same guy.

A laundry list of differing opinions on a conspiracy forum...such a classic. Almost as classic as longstanding epics featuring legendary gods and goddesses who have since been traded in for white privilege and patriarchal self righteousness.

A) To imagine a God with an appearance is idolatry.
And foolish.
If God is One, then there is not anything that is not God.
That means that everything that you can perceive, from the mood to dreams, is God!
No one 'created' anything.
There is One Universal Consciousness, and we are all unique Conscious Perspectives (Souls), perceiving the One Reality/Truth/God, Here! Now!
We Are God Knowing OurSelf!
All Universal existence, every unique moment, is God Knowing OurSelf!
Here! Now!
Thus, is all Known!

Every moment of existence exists Now!

"The Laws of Nature are not rules controlling the metamorphosis of what is, into what will be. They are descriptions of patterns that exist, all at once... " - Genius; the Life and Science of Richard Feynman
All 'eternity' at once; Here! Now!!

There is only one moment (Planck moment = 10^-43/sec; "almost" one billion trillion trillion trillionths of a second!!!) of the entirety of existence/Reality/the Universe!
All existence, ever, is one, literally, 'timeless' moment!
Now!

"Reality is a synchrony of moments!" - Book of Fudd

All existence IS the Singularity!

grass, babies, the Milky Way, old people holding hands, sunrises, sunsets, storms and rainbows, dolphins and giant squids, sumo wrestlers and ballerinas. Smiles and tears.

Water, snow and rain, fire, earth and wind. Daylight and nighttime.
Music. What does music look like?
How about laughter? Tears? Look into the eyes of any creature, and there you will see "God."

Watch the leaves dance in the wind - listen to thunder, watch the lightning. Tsunamis and pristine beaches. Giant redwoods and majestic elk strolling the sidewalks in Estes Park. Nymph Lake. Lake Michigan. The northern lights.

Flowers.
Glaciers.
Deserts.

First and foremost Yahweh was not the same as El Elyon or God Most High, he was one of the Sons of El Elyon given Israel as an inheritance by El Elyon when Israel was still polytheistic/henotheistic and the Hebrew Baal.

Of course Bible translations have always sought to hide this, the Masoretic texts deliberately altered Sons of God to "Sons of Israel" in Deuteronomy 32 to conceal this but the Greek and Dead Sea Scrolls both say Sons of God and by placing Israel where it says God they have replaced God with themselves in a way.

Regardless, Monotheism prevailed and the two were assimilated.

I don't see how you expect to find a valid answer to this question, there is no person who has met God or for that matter can prove His/Her existence.

I would have to say this is a futile question and you will never know what God looks like as long as you are alive.

I picture God as a shadow, black of course, but a black brighter than any color of the spectrum and any light on earth.

(17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Those who looked upon Jesus looked upon the Creator incarnated as the Word of The Most High Father.



John called Jesus the Logos of God, which is a creaTION, and a Platonic, Stoic and Philonic concept that was "borrowed" to make Jesus God by whoever wrote that Gospel (it actually wasn't John, who would not have used Hellenistic philosophy to make the argument that Jesus is God because the Apostles didn't think Jesus was God.

Logos means Reason rather far more often than Word, and Word far from encompasses the meaning of Logos and the Logos becoming flesh is a mere metaphor and not a statement that Jesus is God.

Because Jesus is not God, never claimed to be God, insisted he wasn't God and to Love God and worship God alone.

I love Christians who use obscure metaphors as a reason to make Jesus not just the Messiah, Son of God, Son of Man but also the Creator.

Unfortunately Genesis does not say anything about Jesus because he wasn't born yet and had nothing to do with the creation.

That honor belongs to God alone.

It's patently ridiculous to claim that Jesus is God the Creator seeing as he was just a man, the Messiah, and never claimed to be God.

In fact he worshipped and prayed to God.

God doesn't have a God, if Jesus has a God like we do it logically follows he is not God.

Because you can't have two Gods and be a Monotheist.

John observes that "no man has ever seen God" (John ch1 v18). In fact it would be impossible for any human to take in the full reality of the Biblical God.
When people in the Bible "see God", the most they get is an image accomodating itself to their understanding, in order to give them a sense of "being in the presence of God". It is a kind of filter. That is why the Biblical visions vary so much.



In addition to what Disraeli ands Rex 282 said:

How can the created comprehend the Uncreated?

God is.

He was not created. He looks like nothing and He looks like everything.
