God exists, but not the way most people want it to, or recognize.

The true God is not a he, or a she. and never wrote any of the books attributed to the word of God.

It was all written by humans, who used God as an entity to punish people into submission and organized religion to control them.

There are wonderful religious people in the world, as well as some terrible people as well, but this is not about them.

The real God demanded nothing from any being and created a universe that was eventually able to create the sentience required to recognize and acknowledge itself, and thus that God exists.

God is replicated in all the energy and matter in the universe, and our DNA makes the universe cognizant of itself.

Pleasing God is to be respectful of just being here, and that attitude will certainly change the world.

Life exists. So far science is still at a loss trying to explain it all. Science does have many pieces of the puzzle and is making progress in providing some clarity to all that life entails. But as for the big questions of where it all started nothing is adding up at this time.

That there is something bigger than us for life to of gotten to the stage it has does make a lot of sense.

I can resonate more with what you say then an angry man sitting in a cloud who will destroy us if we don't bow to him and praise him for he is the lord and needs to be reminded of that because he is so insecure

We don't need some old man in a cloud to destroy us, we are more that capable of doing that ourself if we are going to ignore the wisdom that got us this far.

Where does the wind come from that echoes in your head the idea this post makes you look smart?

I mean, perhaps when you don't take out of context what you wrote you might get the idea.

I'm open to the possibility of there being a creator, I merely reject the crude suggestions pawned of as facts that exists in the $piritual marketplace of ideas.

A lot of people were always going to reject religions because of its absurdity through contradiction so there's nothing earth shattering about the 'prophecies' proclaiming such.

I could start a religion today and make that 'prophecy' and it will always everytime 200% be rejected by the majority of people on earth.

The house always wins.

And we are definitely being bombarded by a spiritual casino of sorts.

It would be harder to believe than what I said, but look at the evidence... we have been given all the clues.
Start with hydrogen.

Many spiritual people have great ideas and intent, but have failed to assemble the proof, if any exists.

I agree, spirituality is a necessary component of human existence but with these cheap one size fits all or He kills you Las Vegas religions I'm going to have to say 'pass'.


I know a rigged game when I see one.

I am not aiming for anything other then to give my own personal opinion. Kinda get the feeling it triggers you on some level..
Why does God feel the need to be worshiped and praised ?.. I believe in freedom and sovereignty
Why go to church to find god ? Is god not everywhere ? I find going into nature and becoming still and quite brings me closer to God then sitting in a man made building .. listening to some guy read from a book ....

I don't worship anything... I have reverence for nature
I respect all life ... I see it all as equal....the ant and the elephant the blade of grass to the tallest tree
It's all the same to me... if anything shamanism is a part of my spiritual practice . Why does anything need to be worshiped ? It's a legitimate question I am not being a smart ass ... I asks this with respect ..more respect then you have shown me this far

It still amazes me to this day the vile disgust people get from reading the word worship. What can I do to change your life of disdain? May your shamanism show you the real way.

Perhaps all god really wants from us is to be the version of ourself ...is that not enough ?

Here you are triggered again .. i asked a question
And here you are making presumptions that I am disgusted by your worship....you said vile disgust ? It's your projection perhaps you have a vile disgust toward me ?

Why does anything need to be worshiped ?


Number 2 of the ten commandments, make no idols of me.

With just how big and complex God is, to try and put it all into one symbol, image or idol is going to leave out a lot of just what God is about.
