I did. Perhaps you are overwhelmed with all the questions, but
you never refuted my evidence that God does not exist.

What was the evidence again?

Is god indifferent in human matters or does he intervene? If so, why and how?

Out of aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall the sentient peoples of the Multiverse, humanity is no exception to divine intervention. We do with what God gives us. God gives us existence. That's one thing to be thankful for. So, in a way, it depends on how you look at things. Since He is the sustainer, you could say he always intervenes. Also, you could argue, he doesn't intervene at all under the same argument of him being the sustainer.

Or not.

You have yet to present any evidence for the existence of a god.

Will you be doing so?

Ineffability, my soon-to-be friend, is a topic I've discussed before. No evidence because the evidence is all around you, even in the banal and even in the terrifying. If you want evidence, go underneath a tree, drink no caffeine beforehand, and spend the entire night (eyes open) counting to 10, then starting over. It's the type of meditation that puts me in perfect harmony with everything. That's all I can really say.

I wish people would quit it with the coffee, (I'll save that for that rant thread Thumbsup )

Did I not just tell you how to acquire evidence, lazybones?

No you didn't you made the same banal meaningless assertion you have from the beginning. Everything is evidence but God is ethereal and thus leaves no evidence. If you do not understand how that is the teapot argument you need to go and reread that.
