There is probably a cockroach.
yes Craig there probably is a cockroach...It is verifiable after all......
I deny the existence of gods, but I wonder why so many people here capitalize the g in the word.
My guess is that whoever posts that is trying to be respectful...After all we should not denigrate those who believe....We must agree to disagree....Although we should never give up trying to educate those who believe in such fantasy...
Is there really a need to freak out about it?
Actually in some Christian and in deep biblical era it is considered a sin to speak or write the name of the deity.. Well for those other than priests ect. It was believed that knowing, writing, or speaking the name would give you power over him, it, or her.. This interestingly dealt with desert demon gods to which Yahweh actually is.
So for some it's prohibited, and as said, could actually be intended out of supposed respect.
WOW Michael that just shows how theists are controlled.....I was always a rebel and rarely followed the rules of religion ...I guess that explains a lot about me going rogue...
Lets simplify this, or as in how I have myself determined with certainty there is no god..:
1. The definition of Existence is the "Totality of all that exists." It is everything, every force to cause, process, system, mechanism, state, function, essence of being, person, place, or thing. It is Causality..
2. Universe is defined by the oxford dictionary as "everything that exists" to which is synonymous with "Existence". Please note this definition differs from "Observable Universe".
3. Pantheism is the theistic belief that Existence (The Universe) is God. This produces a paradox in which complete nullifies the concept of GOD entirely to which can be noted in the following questions and answers below:
Q1. What is GOD without Existence?
A2: Non-existent, irrelevant, pointless, a non-entity, fictional, or a figment of the imagination at best.
Q2. If Existence is god while understanding the definition of Existence is all that exists, then what in and of existence is not?
A2: Existence being defined as all that exists means everything and everyone is "GOD".. Therefore the concept of GOD is moot and essentially meaningless while also making any worship of itself from another part of itself rather Narcissistic and incoherent. Hence it makes no logical sense for Existence to worship itself and then punish itself for not..
Q3: If Existence is not GOD, then as above in contrast, what in and of existence is?
A3: If Existence is not GOD, it is therefore by definition that there isn't anything in and of existence that is. Hence there is no possible such thing as a GOD by consequence of the premises and by definition alone.
So here is the ultimate Question you can ask a theist:
Can you explain to me causality, purpose, meaning, functionality, consciousness, life, how we got here, why we are here, where we are, where we came from, what we are, essence of being, or anything at all without existence?
