Invite someone else who is just like me to post on this topic thread.
I would most certainly like to meet such a person in this forum.

Actually you are like Tomasia on heroin.

I hope he comes, it could be an interesting exchange.

Humans evolving from an apelike creature does not automatically means anything about an intelligent designer, and surely does not rule out all (if any) deities involved in the creation of the universe, there are even many theists who accept the theory of evolution by natural selection.

We are not interested in proving negatives for every single imaginable possibility to explain an event, that would be unfeasible (not to say outright impossible), while it is possible to rule out certain kinds of god-like entities by evaluating the absence of evidence in specific cases when we can safely presume the positive would provide evidence, that would still be a huge energy sink.

We focus only on following where the evidence seems to lead us, without drawing logic-jumpy conclusions from it like "super-cosmic entity X might be just it!"

To explain even better, if you ask me those questions, there would be your answers:

An intelligent cosmic godly being designed the universe?
R: I don't know.

There's reason to believe that it did?
R: No there's not.

And for the sake of comparison:

A Huge Pink Dildo monster designed the universe?
R: I don't know.

There's reason to believe that it did?
R: No there's not.

Well, technically the Pink Dildo Monster origin is more probable because we do have examples of Dildos in reality that we can interact, some even being Pink making for a way stronger case than a completely unprecedented kind of entity who possess incomprehensible infinite attributes and powers.

So you're saying the Pink Dildo Monster vibrated for our sins? Tongue Laugh out load

I've come to the conclusion that atoms are in a state of perpetual motion.
This gives testimony to unspeakable energy all around us within the reality we tend to take for granted.
I believe it is possible to tap into this potential energy through proper meditation techniques
and express the miraculous through exciting actions that to the average person
will seem like coincidences.

I believe that to the truly wise

THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES!!!

I continue to see evidence that some strange, invisible force is guiding my life.
The more I live in harmony with this invisible force the more wonderful synchronistic events
magically appear in my life!!
I am looking forward to the most exciting times of my existence in the ensuing years
while atheist types are perpetually convinced this is all nonsenses.

YOUR LACK OF FAITH IS YOUR PROBLEM, NOT MINE!!

I've found that atheist types seem to feel that I must convince THEM of things
for those things to be true. YOU do not have to believe something for it to be true!!!
I say, it's about time you grew up to this fact!!

Not really that unique. We've had many like you on here actually. But if it makes you feel better:

RE: ((( Critical Thinking is the Way )))
I have no problem at all with atoms being in motion all the time. What I do profoundly doubt is that there's some mysterious undetectable sentient thing behind the scenes, running the show. Remains to be seen, literally.

It's nice that you're experiencing what you perceive as synchronicity and that it adds value to your life, but be wary of putting all your eggs in that particular basket. IMO, one must also be prepared to respond quickly and effectively to the unexpected. I'm profoundly optimistic 90% of the time and have had some positively marvelous experiences, but when the excrement hits the rotating ventilation device I'm the one who'll be first to staunch critical wounds, grab the fire extinguisher or otherwise be on the front lines in an emergency.

I see the physical universe and the entirety of time-space as intrinsically meaningless at its foundations, but individual lives as meaningful and subjective.

(Oh, and don't make the mistake of thinking that you can ever out-weird Me. I've done everything from dressing up as a 5-headed dragon to blogging about jelly beans, and My idea of a jolly good time is driving across town in a raging storm to rehearse Looney Tunes music on an alto clarinet. Tongue)

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?
