The God that is the Multiverse, and transcends it completely and totally, but yet His presence is in everything, we need only to look for Him and we will find Him.

God without end in a world without end giving us life without end.

God has no name, God answers to no other, and God is most kind.

And His beautiful and vivifying presence is in all things, to be revealed by killing the self in order to achieve full communion and tranquility, achievable via meditation.

Nah, I'm with you. I just thought what you said was incorrect, so I posted some equally incorrect bullshit to counter. And for some reason I like busting your balls. Tongue

I like my balls.... the problem is no one else does.

The event is not sacred, but the result is sacred.

So a sperm and an egg coming together to become a zygote isn't sacred, but the result of sperm and egg coming together to become a zygote is sacred? Shocking

That makes as much sense as a pregnant pole-vaulter.

That's not what I wrote. At all.

Yeah... I blame that on trying to explain myself amid attacks when people thought me a trolololer.

There seems to be coincidences with regards to your written style and that of many Christians.
Not that I am overly concerned with pointing out grammar mistakes but,
You term your god as simply "God". The word "god" is a noun as opposed to a proper noun (name), for example "man" is a noun but "Stevil" is a proper noun (name). Nouns are not capitalised unless beginning a sentence, proper nouns are always capitalised.
"he" is a pronoun which also reveals the gender of the subject. Pronouns are not capitalised unless beginning a sentence.
You are refering to your god as a male and always using capitals with use of nouns or pronouns where your god is the subject.
Is there a reason for this? Where you once a Christian and picked up the habit from that?

Well, He did create the everything, so I have to give Him some kind of textual acknowledgment. Also, yeah, it's Western tradition of capitalizing the pronouns and nouns of deities.

I say 'He' because, again, Western tradition, but I know that He has no gender.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
