I do believe in a personal spirituality but I call that character and personality. No god involved.
I don't call it a god either, because of the stigma attached to the word. It's more of a law than a god. But the word "law" is so simple compared
to what I see, and there's a certain intelligence to how the motion of the universe leads chaos to build into a greater order than the previous one.
You would think it would randomly fall into any kind of order, but it actually grows STRONGER. Like there's a design. You can see it throughout
history, and you can see it in the universe. I don't call that god, but I do call it divine.
One of the synonymous for the word "divine" is supernal.
Of or relating to the sky or the heavens; celestial.
Of exceptional quality or extent.
Exceptional quality or extent...I think that's a pretty good way to say it.
You call me ignorant as I claim there is no god even though I have proof on my side, can I not call you ignorant for saying there is a god
without proof on your side.
I didn't say there was no proof. I never said anything about proof. But if it's proof you want, I'm afraid I can't offer anything that I can rub
your nose in like a dog being potty trained. And quite honestly, I'd prefer not to do that. Unfortunately, that's probably exactly what I'll have
to do to get you to look at it objectively instead of with your protesting heart.
And when I say 'protesting heart', I mean you will resist because the evidence I offer will not match the parameters you want a divine power to
meet. Regardless, you have not proven the lack of divinity in the universe. In fact, if divinity could be irrefutably proven nonexistent, we wouldn't
even be having this conversation.
I do not call you ignorant. I call you reluctant.
