Well yeah. It's a false correlation to assume that atheist == intelligent...

Now define God without using a simile or metaphor.

Click the link to the Insight book or the first song (which contains not just a metaphorical use of language, not that there's anything wrong with that when it does when clarifying matters). Or just read my previous comment again without only looking for* or interpreting things as similes or metaphors (*: to pound on or complain about as if it's not OK). There don't seem to be any similes or metaphors being used in the short definition for God at the start of my quotation, as far as I can see that is.

First off, why can't you use your own words? Second off, no. I am not going to just disregard similes and metaphors because you want me to. I want an objective and measurable definition of god that can be compared and analyzed. Using flowery poetry by comparing God to love isn't going to satisfy.

Then I'll limit myself to encouraging you to be more resistant to triggering phrases such as "God is love". And perhaps a reminder that luring someone into the type of debate you seem to want to have would take the thread way off-topic. While admitting that I already have a tendency to do that when responding to people like the one who was asking for a definition for God. So I'm thinking...'best not go there'. OK, I'll share one tidbit about my thought-patterns when contemplating whether or not to include the 2 songs for "God is love":

I actually considered not posting them because of your type of expected complaint (and even possible denial that it was a complaint if I respond more to it using that terminology "complaint", you don't care after all right?). Just to argue about words or just anything one can complain about not meeting their standards or expressed requirements. And in this case to dismiss it by labeling it as "flowery poetry" with the effect of triggering a negative response in oneself and a number of possible readers of that comment.

Ok. So don't do it. I'll continue to not give one fart about your god then.

For someone who doesn't give a fart, you seem to be here and about quite a lot
I sort of get your name," krazyshot". because you are always getting triggered

And IFERS was started by a Christian (Samuel Shenton) based on his interpretation of Genesis.

As for Daniel Shenton (no relation to Samuel)? Can you prove he's an atheist?

Are you going to prove to us that he's an atheist? I'm still waiting.

Have you not seen him post before? Expecting him to prove anything is the same as expecting a Flat Earther to understand science.

It just ain't gonna happen
