The Gentile Prophet opi_0dd precides, all be seated.
What about the Torah and the Qu'ran? :shk:
I think God is beyond the bible. Rather.. hes beyond it and he IS it, literally.
Because God said, "I am the word." (thank you EsoTea)
So he's literally the word.. any words you see/hear/think that inspire you to achieve or to do what you need to do, or to live a good life.. or to
question God, all of these words are God himself incarnate.
Which would mean if God is every word of every language everywhere, God must be in more than one place at the same time in our terms, and as silly as
it sounds must be inside of each of us, because we write words, and speak words. For example, these words im writing, these words you're reading ..
this is God incarnate. Knowledge is God.
So. If God is literally the words, when he wants you to read/hear/speak, and hes in multiple places at once, then he must also be inside each of us,
and thus the saying "God is in every one of us" and "God is inside of you" and all of that. I never believed it when I heard it.
Just imagine, The Big-Bang was like God suicide-bombing his physical material self in the centre of the empty universe, creating the most powerful
explosion ever, causing all of his mass, his matter, his essense, to split into bizillions of little pieces that formed stars and planets and eventual
life forms and people. We call it elements, hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, etc .. but the periodic table is what you make of it. We could call hydrogen
oxygen, and say hydrogens molecular make-up was identical to oxygen, and if we controlled every single aspect of reality like God does or did, well
then we could say hydrogen is really oxygen and vice versa, because all it is are words, to label. Words can't truely describe something, its true
description is its' true image, something visual that words cannot describe.
But God said "I am the word". How could God not be able to adaquetely define something in the physical form, in our 4 dimensional form, with just
words? He is the word afterall.
This leads me to believe that perhaps God, YHVH my elohim, did do something groovy like split himself into an infinite number of pieces to be
everywhere all the time.
What I do know is that theres a profound arguement here against Atheism. Check it out. Even if you say there is no God, and you say that everything
exists as an anomaly caused by the big-bang, then you are admitting God's existance without even realizing it. Heres why. Even if for sake of
discussion, there really was no God, something, a force, a natural occurence, a coincidence, two things being in the wrong place at the right time,
whatever still caused the big-bang to happen, when it happened. And as a result of the big-bang, everything exists. Well, that tells me that if there
was no literal God of supreme power, if we took the Athiest line and claimed theres no God, then there actually still would be a God, and that God
would be the force, the coincidence, the precursor to the big-bang, or whatever caused it to take place exactly when it did, and I emphasize EXACTLY.
Because if it took place 1 millisecond later than it actually did, not a single one of us would even be here right now to discuss this. Thus inevitbly
we are creations of a higher power.
Random Thought: They need to start making keyboards that have bold, italic, and underline buttons on them that function with most popular message
boards. Other buttons, which could be above the F1-F12 keys, could include many of the board features in the formatting mode. This would create a
sharp decline in capslocked words because people could spend equal or less effort to go for the bold print.
I love you all. Except for the ones of you who vote Republican in November.
