You guys are so clever. God can’t even make a brunette into a red head because she wouldn’t be a brunette anymore. Right!

Wait a minute, a $15.00 bottle of Clairol can turn that brunette into a head turning red head. Hmm. Something cannot be two contradictory things at once. When the definitions of the words collide, actions can seem impossible. Right?

So let’s simplify, a pentagon is really a five sided polygon. The word pentagon is really an adjective “pent” ( five ) joined with the noun “polygon” (a two dimensional shape with straight sides). The question restated: Can God make a five (penta) sided polygon into a six (hex) sided polygon? Heck, give me a pencil, piece of paper, and an eraser, I could do that for ya.

Words are often too limiting or too broad. The Greeks used the word sophistry to describe seemingly insolvable word play. Our thoughts and ideas are formed in words. Words can make problems seem unsolvable. If there is a God,or God-like thinking it would be pure thought, not concepts or ideas clumsily cobbled together from clanky, imprecise words. Words colored by history, personal associations, and personal experiences.

You will find sometimes 5 or 10 different definitions listed beside a word. Definitions often vary between Webster, American Heritage, and Funk & Wagnall’s dictionaries. There are billions of words written every year arguing over the definitions of socialism, communism, fascism, and capitalism. Still the meanings are confusing.

The words and their “colored” meaning are the tools of wordsmiths who write poetry, dogma, and occasionally a little truth.

Getting past the words, to clearly see the concept - that's real understanding.

Can God eliminate all confusion regarding religion by physically showing himself to everyone in the world and answering all the questions about his expectations of us?

Apparently not.

You seem to have a biblical view of God. You need to get beyond that. You may only be someone who doesn't believe Christian or Jewish theology which is fine. Many go to church every Sunday with an eye as skeptical as yours. They go for social reasons and for respect that they get in the community.

Then join the Shriners.

You clearly have some sort of notion of a god, or you would not have made that patronizing remark about guilt, and self-righteously implies you live a morally superior life. If you are "beyond" the Biblical god, where exactly does your moral system come from, and what is it, and define your god.

Please define god, and list his properties.

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.
