["There is only one God that refuses to be represented by matter. This God stands alone in this fact. All other Gods are counterfeit to the one God
by character. The Bible says, "Know them by their fruit." Matt. 7:16 The important thing is not knowing God, but God knowing us. Our relationship to
Him is defined by His knowledge of us, not the ohter way around."]
Which is a faith-argument trying to prove itself. Standard circle-argumentation; and as a methodoly it can be used by ALL religions the same way.
Quote: ["Evolution is and creationism are paradoxes of the same truth. When two truths are asserted, each bearing an image of the same truth, the
third perspective (Excluded Middle) can unify both."]
Pseudo-philosophy, presented with trite and vague 'maybe' suggestions. The real and functional version of this approach is syncretism. But real
syncretism must be used exceedingly precise. Wishy-washy application is non-sense.
Quote: ["Father (Light/particle/Prima Materia), Son (Word/Wave/Logos/force/laws) and Holy Spirit (Consciousness). God is one person, represented to
the world as the duality of particle and wave, animated by consciousness."]
This statement has reached dogmatic status in your posts. It's presented time and again, and time and again it has demonstrated, that this is
homecooked pseudo-science. I can supply anyone with interest and enough scientific competence to understand the debate with links. I'm not going to
repeat the arguments for the umpteenth time here.
Quute: ["Man is the material representation of this trinity in the form of body (particle and wave) and consciousness (Spirit). Christ was the Living
Word of God that came to bring us Holy Consciousness. He is the Logos, creator of this reality, the wave that spoke existence into form. This is the
associated force that brings particle to form. One God is One. There is no confusion."]
As much or as little 'confusion' as there would be in a similar promotion of the flying spaghetti monster.
Quote: ["Know them by their fruit. Islam can stand on the actions of their beliefs. Either they love others or they steal, kill and destroy. This is
the distinction between loving God and others (Biblical) or taking from others for selfish pride (Genesis 3 Pride of the world)."]
Genesis 3 is a circle-argumented moral system, which has AUTHORITY at its center.
Quote: [" A study of the ancient Phoenician lexicon (Ancient Hebrew) reveals that the root of all civilization and belief originates with the root
morphology of this language. God is the Father represented by the Ox and the shepherd's staff. This is the leading of the Father by the strength and
understanding of the shepherd's staff. Christ is the son, the good Shepherd."]
And THIS is supposed to be an 'explanation' of the religious intolerance demonstrated by factions of the christianities.
Quote: ["All other beliefs are branches from the root. The Greeks see the world from a western world view as abstract / Scientific. The original
Hebrew cultures viewed the world from their concrete language and nomadic lifestyle. The Hebrew language is represented by 22 letter, parent root,
child roots and adopted roots. These roots then branch out into all the Hebrew words that make up the original Torah. These roots and branches make a
story that tells of God (Father) leading man as a good shepherd."]
Quote: [" Buddha, Confucius, Hermes, Plato, Jesus and so on were all part of the larger picture. Jesus was the culmination of all thought and the key
to rightly dividing truth for all others."]
Quote: ["Science is a poor description of God,"]
Science isn't describing 'god', and doesn't try to.
Quote: ["$20 if you can name a single thing you do apart from thinking and moving your body."]
Geez. And who will be the referee?
Quote: ["If you look closely, you see that we are on autopilot. Do you make your hair grow? Do you activate the cones and rods in your eyes for
sight? Do you digest your food? Do you make the sun shine or the earth warm? Look close. All functions of the human and his reality are produced by
Intelligent design once more, and "it's 'god' what did it" filling knowledge-gaps.
Quote: ["No proof. It's only evidence for faith. Plenty to go around. Faith comes form a life lived and the fruit it bears."]
Get the facts vs. faith positions straigthened up, before you start on such rhetorics.
Quote: ["All prayer is looking with outstreatched hands toward the leading of God. You do not do the leading, you pray for understanding as you
travel the path that is laid before your destiny by God. Prayer is not a vending machine."]
So when it doesn't function it 'proves god' and when it in 0.01% (ofcourse an estimate) seemingly does function, it ALSO 'proves god'.
