Perfection is a goal. No more than that.
Ever read Mount Analogue? I did quite a number of years ago. A recent thread reminded me of it.

As long as I'm in the right ball park
missing first base isn't that bad.
What really sucks is when you run all bases perfect
then realize that that's not even where the actual game is being played.
Dear Tok, you can talk forever, but you have no sense of intellectual sincerity and courage to take on my challenge to you, namely, interact with me on my post as reproduced below as follows - but I will already tell you, please go away and do your attempts at derail elsewhere.

Disclaimer: I am not pointing in this post to any if any at all atheists participating in this thread of mine, my mention of atheists is what I know as for myself personally to be anonymous atheists, but they do publish writings against religion and God and put their names thereto.
AND I submit to the powers that be here, should they decide to remove the present post.
Dear atheists, do you really believe that you don't have to prove anything in this thread at all, in which case then please go away, this thread is addressed to all persons who care to at least explain their whatever positions they have in re God exists or not.
Don't stay and post here if you don't need to prove anything or at least explain your thoughts at all in re God exists or not.
The fact that you are here at all in a thread concerned with proving God to be existing or not, that is the evidence that you care to put in even just empty words to make yourselves intellectually visible, but you are not so much intellectual as that you are after projecting your physical presence here, still though vacuously as occupied with honest intelligent productive thinking.
My observation is that atheists are disgruntled ex-Christians who have some grudge against their erstwhile Christian faith or church or personalities, but instead of just getting out and moving on without any more anything to do with their erstwhile Christian faith, they take to attack God, like calling God a flying spaghetti monster, or like one Bertrand Russell (the father of evasions against his erstwhile Christian faith, who started the trend with calling God an orbiting teapot in space.
Any armchair psychologist can see the silly rationalization of atheists, namely, instead of honest admission that they choose to not comply with Christian morality in particular in re Christian sexual morality, they deny God, the God in particular of Christian sexual morality.
Now, that is however not my focus, God being the author of Christian morality, in particular sexual morality, my focus is on God in concept as the creator cause of man and the universe and everything with a beginning.
Sexual morality is a very big deal. And it's everybody's business. And only Christians know anything about it.
