Now, all ye readers here, this as follows here is again another ultimate proof - this time shorter, for the existence of God:

1. There has always been existence, this is intrinsically irrefutable.

2. There are transient beings, like us humans, we have a beginning and an ending, that is an intrinsically irrefutable fact.

3. From num 1 and num 2 it follows that there is at least one permanent self-existent entity, and all the rest in existence are transient entities created and kept in existence by that one permanent and self-existent entity. This is an intrinsically irrefutable logical conclusion.

4. There, in nums 1 and 2 and 3 is the how and why everyone with honest intelligent and productive thinking accepts as a fact that is irrefutable, namely:

5. God exists in concept as the permanent self-existent creator of everything that is transient or that is not God Himself.

.

Dear everyone, see if you can show that the above explanation for God's existence is founded on the fallacies of begging the question and circular reasoning.

Prove it.

Prove it.

Even if you can prove 1 & 2., then you’d still have to prove this.


in nums 1 and 2 and 3

Which have yet to be proven (BTW, just saying it’s proven, doesn’t prove anything).


God exists in concept

Unicorns “exist in concept” too, but doesn’t make them real.

Incorrect.

There is no need to imagine any "permenant self-existent entity" to explain the existence of transient entities.

Matter/energy change form (ie. all forms are transient) but WE KNOW that matter/energy itself cannot be created or destroyed.

We have never observed brand new matter/energy being created and there is no reason to think that it ever has been.

Nope.

There is no reason to imagine any permenant creator.. we know matter/energy cant be created or destroyed. It is matter/energy itself that is permenant..

You really thought you had proven the existence of God?

Dear Terry, you use the word 'prove' like as though you are truly acquainted with its meaning.

So, I love to learn from you, tell me without going to dictionaries nor dropping names and links at all, in not more than 100 words, tell me what it is to prove something to exist.


Now, dear everyone, let us all sit back and await with bated breath to read what Terry can teach us what it is to prove something to exist.

We have never observed brand new matter/energy being created and there is no reason to think that it ever has been.


Pray, enlighten me where did matter and energy come from?

No. Words have meanings and those are collected in books called dictionaries. I don’t know why you’re so scared of them

So back to my post (that you ignored all of apart from a single word)...

Nowhere. It has always existed and always will... its a law of physics that it can never be created or destroyed...

Your position is this - something that we know cannot be created or destroyed MUST have been created.. gotta be God.

You've wasted a lot of hours and words on this nonsense. Don't feel bad though, billions of ppl have.

Correct. We are prone to delusion. We are so wrapped up in the world of forms that we fail to understand the real nature of things. It is only forms which are subject to creation and destruction. The Buddha explained it all thousands of years ago.

But you are proof. Your seat of conciousness will never be pinpointed in the brain. Because its not a constuct of nueral activity that just weighs inputs. That awareness, your I AM, is the seat of your soul. Which is part and parcel of the greater soul. Thats why some people that have been resusitated from heart attacks with no brain activity, can report "very specific details of what happened to them during cardiac arrest" here.

The yogi's in India dscovered long ago that when they trained their brain to be quiter (less thought) something strange occurred. They could percieve very subtle thoughts that didn't originate from their brain. So subtle that normal thought would block it entirely out. That thought originated from the great soul. A gateway in which communcation could travel from I AM to I AM. So two yogi's could communicate directly with one another through that gateway proving it was a real.

But to truly believe one has to experience that belief. You only need the will to do so.

All that’s proves is we haven’t discovered what/where consciousness is. Yet.

Much like how we didn’t know a few thousand years ago that the world was round. Or not so long ago that being on a train wouldn’t make a womans uterus exit their body.

The “we don’t know, therefore god” is a lousy argument.

Doesn't it surprize you that science can mathematically explain a black hole but when it comes to consciousness they at a complete loss. Thats because science expresses findings in the language of mathematics. They have tied their hands by their own methodology.

The link I gave you infers that people have ability to exist outside the 5 senses.
If you prefer to infer that the label of God is defined as a 6th sense. Then that be God.
