How would you describe the 'ethereal' parts of yourself?Quote
Susan, I should explain that though I believe in ethereal parts of ourselves,
My question then is: why try and think of a God/god at all?! Surely it is far morelogical to know that the idea of any non-material something lacks any credibility and is, therefore, entirely a product of the human mind.Quote
my idea of God is not typical of the God/god one could have a personal relationship with. The universal God may indeed “be” the universe, not a humanoid creation of people taking account of our actions like Santa Claus.
Yes, well, it sounds very impressive! But what does it actually mean?!Quote
I don’t think God is going to descend on the planet to kick ass or help out. There could be gods or aliens that might do such a thing, but the “big God” – nope, ain’t gonna happen. I doubt that kind of god would see us as any more important than a blade of grass. If we are the cat’s pajamas of evolution – I pity the universe. I was watching some show about quantum physics and one of those folks made the statement that "God is the superposition of all consciousness". I like that statement.
Good idea! As always, it is the interpretation of beliefs that defines their objectivity or lack of.Quote
The "take exception" part. I have not seen any polls lately of an increase in people who believe, or do not believe in God, so I take exception to your statement that the number of people who do not believe in God is increasing. I just don't know, nor does it affect my thinking on the matter one way or another. I value my own experiences more than what the majority of folks may believe.
