WOW!! And, they're going to be sitting on the other side of her???
Yikes. So- this is the 'meet the parents' audition?
Keep us posted. Pretend you have a cough.
Have fun!! If nothing else, it'll be an exercise in "culture shock".
I am what I describe as 'mystic': I experience the invisible world every day. You can never become 'mystic' if you believe the fundamental forces of physics can produce free-will and the reason that I'm sure you believe is the basis of your understanding of these 'scientific' principles. The creation of animate matter is not within the remit of Biology; Biology operates on the premise that this has taken place. The creation of animate matter is a matter of particle physics and thermo-dynamics.
Inanimate matter simply couldn't build all this that you see around you.
Yahweh is real, but evil.
Time to wake up - or not?
Have you ever before observed the emergence of consciousness, intelligence and personality without a material foundation such as a brain?
Without starting a debate on semantics as to what one may call 'empirical', I'll concede I've never personally met Yahweh. However, through deductive reasoning I have strong belief - through social behaviour (Religions and secret societies) - that a widely referenced, influential and morally questionable entity, that goes by the name of Yahweh - and probably Osiris - has/does exist. I'm not sure if he's immaterial though.
If not, what then convinces you that an immaterial, conscious, intelligent and evil being called "Yahweh" exists? Where is your empirical evidence?
I think you could tell I was being serious and that's why you responded.
I couldn't tell whether you are serious or not in your post.
It poses an interesting question.
