This makes no sense. Many atheists, this one included, base our understanding of the world on what evidence we have. What aspects of the world we live in do you claim that I as an atheist am imagining?

Quote:Their whole life, they have been spouting, that God is fake.
For whatever reason.
And now, low and behold, they find, that this is not true.
This, takes a while, to sink in.
And, now they look the fool.
Because of all the wrong things, that they have said.

I see no evidence to support a theistic worldview. Your pictures of 'god' looked like nothing but blurs to me. How do you expect anyone to see those pictures and think they have anything to do with a god? Conflicting accounts of what god is tells me that mankind has a tendency to attribute god or supernatural causes to give meaning to their lives. This doesn't prove that this supernatural being is actually real, only that many humans have a tendency to think god is there.

Human perception is very limited, and very often we are wrong in our perceptions. Because we have pretty much the same biology, humans have a tendency to be wrong in the same way. It 'looked' like the Sun went around the earth to most humans, so that was what we thought. The same wrong assumptions about planetary motion have been made countless times in the past. The question of whether a god exists is framed in a way so as to be unfalsifiable. So we can't say there is proof of god's nonexistence...we can at best say there is no good evidence for a god.


Quote:A LOT of bridges
Now, need to be mended.
It is understandable.
But still
Has to be done.

What bridges? That god, if he/she/it exists needs to be coddled because he/she/it didn't do a good job clearly demonstrating he/she/it actually exists?

I mentioned PM because that way we get to have a proper conversation without a million other people butting in. I'm good with either way though.

If I may butt in...

Hughsie,
His objective here is self-aggrandisement.

The PM function is not a tool that satisfies his needs.

See Bucky's parody of his mental health issue on pages 18 and 19 and Mark Fulton's analysis of his condition in post #287.

Worth reading.

Lazy, fucking, Manc!

There are also many examples of hubris i.e. where he claims to have caused people to have had breakdowns on another atheist forum.

He is not here to attempt to convert you (as an individual).

Hubris /ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence, accomplishments or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power. Hubris is usually associated with the "simple-minded". The adjectival form of the noun hubris is "hubristic".

All righty then.

It is 3AM.

Metatron

Is ready

To rock.

Why does Metatron get up at 3AM?

You may ask.

Because God is bored

At 3AM.

All the children, are asleep.

Nobody, to play with.

So she gets Metatron, up.

He, will play with her

At any hour.

Just as good.

As 7 billion children.

7 billion children

In one hand

Are not worth as much

As one Metatron

To God.

She would rather

They all die

Than Metatron.

And that's a fact.

You, are an atheist, you say?

My goodness.

How unusual.

I could prove to you, that God is real, in FIVE MINUTES.

Maybe, three.

On good day.

Tis my honor

To do so

For you.

Right now.

For your perusal, this link.

http://thenewholybible.org/atheists_here...of_God.htm

Should, do it.

But if need more

Come to the well.

Anytime, my dear.

You are welcome.

Signed,

Metatron.

There are bridges my dear.

There are bridges.

In the olden days

God would kill you.

If you even said the words, "I am an atheist".

You were dead.

Not kidding, about that.

Job, was tormented, and was starting to get whiny.

And his wife, was FED UP.

So she said to him, why do you not just renounce God?

Knowing, that God would kill him.

If he did that.

But old Job

Was a crafty fox.

Who, did not want to die.

So, "he did not renounce God".

A death sentence.

Only an idiot

Skates, on that thin ice.

There are bridges, my dear.

There are bridges.

That picture, is very very neat.

There is not "just God", in that photo.

There is God, there is Satan, and there is the Second Coming.

3 images.

Just, to get started.

Have you not heard

Of "The images of the beast?"

Ya baby.

It is in the bible.

The "images", I give you

Are very much magic.

Very much ju ju.

Save the world.

With images

Like that.

I would go over that page

A little "more carefully".

It is a goldmine.

I am here to "publish poems".

What they do

I do not know.

God, uses, each one differentially.

Some help.

Some hurt.

Depends, on what you deserve.

You must, reconcile with God.

But that, can be like

Giving birth.

A little pain

And then

The great reward.

So, much like circumcision, then.

Actually, childbirth was a 'little' painful... She dug her nails into my hand as she screamed in her agony.

And worse... she never apologised to me.

So selfish.

RE: Welcome Mark Dreher
hey squirreltron, why would Shakira be bored at 3am and have to wake you up? Are you aware that the earth is a sphere and that while it may be 3am in MN, or the Pillsbury estate or the musty basement in topeka or where ever you live, there are plenty of people awake throughout the world for your "god" to play with. Or is this just more evidence for your delusional worldview?

God's name is "Shekinah" my dear.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shekinah

And one day, you will know that.

Now

Did you have any questions?

I have worked with atheists, for years.

Their insults

Do not impress me.

The Shekinah, has only one mate.

One prophet

That she can turn to.

Old Enoch.

The best friend of God.

From the bible, Genesis 5:22.

"Enoch walked with God".

http://christianity.about.com/od/oldtest.../Enoch.htm

That soul, is "repeatedly used", over and over.

It is an eternal spirit.

No other human

Could fill its place.

To answer your question

Of

Why me?
