I believe that there may very well be a god.
What is not impossible is of course possible.
I do not believe that the god as described in the Bible exists.
Of all the holy texts there has ever been, of all the gods humanity has come up with since the dawn of time, there's simply no way that the bible, written by men, is the true story of god and the creation of the universe.
It is folly.
Sorry if I offend anyone but I'm just being honest.
I believe Moses got 10 commandments the same way I believe Joesph Smith got golden plates to translate.
One thing I have noticed is while heaven is described as a place of milk and honey, the great reward, where all are perfect in His sight, most self identified Christians are none too eager to enter the Pearly Gates a second faster than they can help. They cling to this life as hard as the average atheist.
When I read the initial question I wondered if NP was baiting. He seemed blind to any other complex concept other than the one he used multiple posts to define.
His apparently a black and white world, and he is welcome to it. Just think it odd an American can't look at other nation's laws and societies for inspiration but can look to a foreign potentate for spiritual guidance.
I am now agnostic.
It is our society that enforces morality.
"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
