You know good and well your life style doesn't do those things.

    Why don't you answer my question? Why is it so important for you to want to impose your ideal lifestyle on others as if that fits us?
    No, I am talking about God's way...pay attention to the post I responded to...
    "For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will, but through the one who subjected it, on the basis of hope that the creation itself will also be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God. " Romans 8:20,21

    A Note on the Thread
    Contrary to 2500 years of philosophy and natural philosophy and 400 years of modern science, as well as the last 15 years of militant atheism, the existence of God is not something to be known; it is not a matter of knowledge, the existence of God. No, the existence of God (to be distinguished conceptually from the nature of God, which is the province of religion and properly so) -- the existence of God is a matter of judgment, of discernment. The existence of God is a value, a value discovered in and through the things of the world. God, the existence of God, is the value discovered in the world by unclouded percipience.

    The Argument



    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    The eye of the beholder sees Beauty in a thing.

    The eye of a second beholder may miss seeing the Beauty in the thing that the first beholder sees,
    but sees Beauty in another thing.

    Both see the Beauty of things, but in and through different things.

    The eye of a third beholder may miss the Beauty of the things seen as Beautiful by the first and second beholders,
    and yet see Beauty in a third thing.

    All three see the Beauty of things in different things.
    The Beauty they see is as Real as the things they see Beauty in.

    A fourth beholder sees Beauty in nothing.
    His eye is deficient: his eye is purblind.

    Beauty is as Real as the world in which Beauty is seen.

    Do you have an eye for Beauty?


    God is in the eye of the beholder.
    The eye of the beholder sees God in a thing.

    The eye of a second beholder may miss God in that thing
    and see God in another thing.

    Both see God in things but in different things.

    The eye of a third beholder may miss God in the two things
    and see God in a third thing.

    All three see God in different things.
    God is as Real as the things they see God in.

    A fourth beholder sees God in nothing.
    His eye is deficient: his eye is purblind.

    God is as Real as the world in which God is seen.

    Do you have an eye for God?


    Yes he is.

    To date you've never provided a single shred of evidence to back up your assertion that god is real.
    Zealotry needs no evidence!

    Which God's way? There are hundreds from hundreds of religions with wildly conflicting suggestions for how to live. You're just taking your ideal way to live, pretending it's gods and objective and that we should all follow it. Your religious way of life sounds like a nightmare to me, why should I live in a way I hate?

    Jehovah God's way...that is basically what He was telling Adam and Eve in the garden, that His way was best, so listen to Him...with their rebellious attitude, they were telling God they wanted to govern themselves and choose for themselves what was right and wrong...thus the "pretty piss poor god in my opinion when you look at the state of the world." that Jet mentioned in his post...so, my question is, how can God prove to man that God's way is the best way to live? By destroying Satan, along with Adam and Eve and start over? What would that prove? Only who is most powerful, certainly not what is the best way for man to live...the only way for God to prove to man that His way is the best way to live is to let man attempt to govern himself...thus the "pretty piss poor god in my opinion when you look at the state of the world." that Jet mentioned in his post...

    I just told you I'd hate to live you and your god's way, would be totally miserable. So would any Muslim, Hindu or Jew.

    You're pretending you've found a universal, objective perfect way to live, which you know is nonsense. The question is why is it so important to convince everyone else your way is the right way instead of accepting we're all different and want different things?

    so god may not be real

    beauty dosent exist independently of your mind that's wired to find something things attractive

    a being that created the universe and and that has a will of its own exits or it dosent whether you believe in it or not

    Nice dodge of addressing everything/anything I said...
