That's not arrogance. Girly'll show you arrogance. Tongue

RE: Bible's view of the cosmos: flat earth, moving sun. People actually buy into this?
The Inquisition,

I know the little I do know about the One Creator through, honestly, personal salvation, peaceable scriptures of varied "religions", a lifetime of observation and analysis of nature and people, my conscience, attempting to be wholly truthful and selfless, or benificail to others at all times.

I work, and I'm on forums. When I'm not doing those two things I'm reading scripture.

Insignificant species/ planet? Uhm... look around. Not only are we the only advanced life within our realm of physical observation, but we happen to have utterly unique potential to benefit or negatively impact our observable habitat, and all life within it. So you saying insignificant just doesn't make sense to me. It is obvious we are indeed unique, powerful, and embewed with freedom, potential, and
responsability.

Generic isn't the word. Just GOD. How can you begin to claim what God is or is not capable of?
GOD is all encompassing, created all, and is intricately involved in all things on an individual level, through predestination of all, or intervention with things because of the acts of man in a show of continued giving and long suffering. It is merciful, giving, all subsisting, and all knowing.

Infinate potential is observable in the Universe. As is the obvious direction of all things under God's command. Having the freedom to revolt the direction of God is a show of grace by God. To be foolish enough to actually continually, openly, and heedlessly go in a direction other than that of which is responsible for all existence and the well being there of will prove to be damning to existence as a whole as we know it. If that isn't unique potential and responsibility, then nothing is.

My prayers have been heard and responded to time and time again. I personally am not too worried about death or an afterlife. I dont know much about an afterlife like some say. I know we will return to GOD the One Creator when our physical existence is over. You really make no sense on that last part though.

The God of Abraham is the same god of the Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

You forgot Rastafarianism, Samaritanism, Druzism , Mandaeism, Bábism and the Bahá'í Faith.

Your god randomly kills people in fiery car crashes and that is why you prefer to be a theist? Shocking

Haven't checked into mandaeism, or samaritanism too much. Thought Bab was like a messenger in the Bahai Faith.

Significantly worse than taking things out of context. Whatever though.
