Not kidding. Dead serious, in fact. If, as I believe, the universe was not designed by a sentient being, I know better than literally everyone who believes in such a being.

I'm sick to death of believers who try to logic their imaginary friends into existence. Show Me the actual being.

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

My eyes are wide open. Show me the money, show me this intelligent designer. Bring it to the table. I'm all eyes and ears.

You have to PROVE you really want to know the Intelligent Designer personally
before you have any hope of ever having the Intelligent Designer reveal himself to you.
Take a typical rotten atheist type attitude and you will get nothing but a hellish eternity

YOU ARE MICROSCOPIC!!!

It's a big universe. The Intelligent Designer doesn't need YOU to believe in Him.
However, the more I give loving offerings of gratitude and appreciation for the good in my life
the more my life is filled with more and more good and wonderful things
with much good to share with those less fortunate than I.

That is a great portion of my proof that there is indeed an Intelligent Designer of the Universe
and that he loves me!!

RE: ((( Critical Thinking is the Way )))

In all fairness, I must say that my belief in an intelligently designed universe
comes from my near-death experiences, not from some book or self-righteous preacher.

That's why my approach to the subject is very different from most you may have encountered.

However, I don't know how much of what happened is real or an elaborate dream.

I WILL TELL YOU THIS MUCH:

I am now more convinced than ever that what we call "reality" is an elaborate dream
within the perfect mind of the Intelligent Designer of the Universe.

Yes, the more I advance in the Spirit the more convinced I become this is indeed a fact.
That's why I say I believe new discoveries in consciousness will eventually lead
to the tossing of Darwinian evolution into the science garbage dump right next to the Piltdown man

This is what I am confused/nonplussed about.

Consider

Why/how will working out how the human brain works have any impact at all on the rest of the field of biology?

Consider

Actually, I know some one who's been in the operating theater (As a Nurse) who's been helping with the operation to assist in stopping an accident victim's brain from literally falling out of their damaged skull.

Is that close enough? Consider

Was their brain falling out because they were too open minded?

I should have clarified that I made a FINANCIAL contribution
and I may contribute more. We'll see how it goes.
I edited my previous post to clarify this

RE: ((( Critical Thinking is the Way )))
Jsamuel, I do not believe your testimony. I believe that your entire spiritual experience including your NDE is simply an interesting neurological effect created by your physical brain, and that your Intelligent Designer is literally a figment of your imagination.

I also do not believe that any god worthy of the title would deliberately play hide-and-seek with mortals and demand faith of them. That is a disgusting way for a god to behave. Furthermore, your talk of a "hellish eternity" hints that you continue to buy into the ludicrous afterlife fables of Christianity, Islam or some similar "believe or burn" cult.

As for consciousness, this I believe with every fibre of My being: Consciousness, personality, sense of self, memory, belief, and all of the other perks of being a sentient being are automatically and permanently terminated at the time of irreversible physical death.

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

Having Lucy and Linus manage Snoopy's presidential campaign
did NOT help him get elected. Although running on the pity party was...well...
not a very good idea

Maybe if he wasn't wearing a Donald Trump wig it might have helped?

I guess we'll never know
