The "feeling" is not supernatural, its demonstrably self deception.
Thus becomes not evidence for a God but rather the absence of them.


I see little difference between homeopathy and god. It's all just placebo effect.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

God is authoritarian. Homeopathy is easier to ignore.

I would have to agree that is sometimes the case. But that is not evidence there is no such thing or person as God. Empathy is real.

You have it backwards again, asshole. Your feeling is not evidence that there is such a thing or person as your fairy-tale monster.

Actually, It is not delusional to say Love rules as the moral Truth. I see nothing wrong with warm and fuzzy. What you think Love is a delusion? That's sick.


Get used to it.
You didn't answer the question.

I already did elsewhere. Get fucking used to it, pussy.

You have a sufficiently low post count. Taq assumes anyone with a low enough post count is a troll until proven otherwise.


Bullshit. I see a troll trolling and I kill it.


Quote:This might seem unfair (and in many ways, it is), but we went through a period of time with a crap-ton of troll posters and drive-bys, and Taq sort of appointed himself gatekeeper.

I did no such thing.

I've understood that the imagination can conjure up feelings based on things that are non-existent. The term God in scripture, as I understand it, refers to the moral good in mankind.
Hence scripture would say there is nothing good inside of man apart from God. Also, the Word of God was the Light of man and the Life of man.

Oh, look, another delusional cherry-picker who denies and denies and compartmentalizes and ignores until all he has left to spout is stupid fucking platitudes like "gawd is luv hurr durr...".

1 John 4:8, He that does not love, does not know God; for God is love.
Ephesians 5:9, For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.

Mat 19:17, And he said unto him, Why do you call me good? there is none good but one, that is, God:

Word. Salad.
