Ok. Here we go. I had a vision in a dream. I know there are many explanations in the realm of Psychology or Physiology. But this vision was so powerful that it has resulting in giving up an amazing career flying an amazing aircraft to becoming a chaplain.

That you are convinced of something so unlikely in a freakin' dream speaks volumes about your credulity and your emotional state.

To make such a life-changing decision because of a dream is a concept entirely devoid of reason.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

I consider it the advancement of life as a whole. The adaptation to changing habitat.

It is adaptation, not advancement. What advancement is a virus achieving when it mutates? Consider

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

So? If you think that my misrepresentation has somehow damaged your reputation then sue me. In my defense I will come to court with a compilation of your posts and argue that your reputation was already damaged beyond repair. By you.

The most intellectually honest position, if you insist that a deity is the cause, is that it's impersonal and all of man's religions are off the mark, which leads you to a pretty useless god concept.
Why does that mean it has to be impersonal? Also, why can God not just GOD? I mean Elohim, Brahmin, Yahweh, Allah, they all pertain to the same creator God. So why does someone have to differentiate? There is one God. The sooner people can start to realize this the sooner peace and advancement can abound.

I couldn't care less about my rep, really. Hence the indifference. I care about being here, not what people think about me.

Sure buddy. Yo what get right on that. I'll wait. Do me a favor and use core scriptures, not the opinions of others not responsible for the writings.

Then why did you comment on my post at all? You think you can give Girly a lesson in ethics? Not gonna happen. 30 years of annual ethics training and formal training at uni.

Humor really does trump all. I was just satirizing you.

Scripture is the claim, it is not the evidence.

You need to provide evidence of the veracity of those core scriptures.
