    hi chris

    we dont know of course but we just believe because we cant know

    if we knew we wouldnt call it a belief

    you may remember what l had said about the deistic interpretation of holy books

    we may both believe in a god and use our mind at the same time

    Re: do you believe god exists ?

    I voted "no". It's my opinion that the "god" of the bible does not exist.

    I'm open to the concept that there might be something "bigger" out there that we can't define or understand, but the "god" that most humans arrogantly and stubbornly insist exists, most certainly does not.

But if God wanted no doubt, he or she (really both) would leave no room for doubt.
    hi boo

    l think they are not true believers

    they are more like radicals who think of themselves as god

    Yes, I do remember our conversation, and I agree.

Despite tremendous individual variation, chaos magicians (sometimes called "chaotes"[2]) often work with chaotic and humorous paradigms, such as the worship of Hundun from Taoism or Eris from Discordianism, and it is common for chaotes to believe in whatever god suits their current paradigm and discard it when necessary."

    You should probably search a little more than just Wiki. Wiki doesn't always have good information. If you just google Chaos Magic and witchcraft, you will see that this is a theory that witches of today do apply. It IS a pagan belief. It doesn't really have anything to do with God. I don't know what would make you think that there aren't modern witches and pagans.

    I would say fascinating not frightening.

    Or fearful that such things may be less certain, or have the need to feel better by degrading others. Any way you slice it, they are the furthest away from anything righteous.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
