And yet they are. In great numbers.

Pithy Wititude, Region Rat... Question - Why would I presume you as being self centered... Answer- Because of the way you answered. But if you think those Demis that you named. Give you every indication that you are honoring them.. I would simply say...How?
It doesn't matter for the purpose of my answer. No creators are known to exist. Therefore, there is no reason reason to consider them as something that is real.
He can take the cake and shove it up his or hers. No cake at the wedding. The people will indeed live. It isn?t the end of the world. As for the baker, I wouldn?t feel discriminated because that?s just their beliefs and there?s not much I can do about it.
Morning St. Lou cutie.
If that what your cognitive processing got out of my post I?m afraid it?s you that appears to be operating in the dark.
The Universal God is Time, Energy and Matter. That's all any THINKING human needs to know.
I don't know...maybe you should educate me. Im waiting for those citations.
Read back past the first link that pops up, Mariam.
The questions could have been asked in the context of a theology presupposed true. Not sure that it leads anyone to a better understanding but it might be an interesting thought experiment- why a personal god would act in a specific manor.... but without some caveats it's premises are nearly entirely fallacious.
Why not go somewhere else where they are not in place? Why do we need a once size fits all in this case?
?We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here. We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?? -- Richard Dawkins
"Should" = actively encouraged at the minimum, and added as a requirement at a maximum.
Well, then I'd say it's safe to say they are as aware of that as anyone else.
It could mean that God created basic forms in the beginning and after the beginning gave shape to them, thus putting them into the forms that we currently recognize as heavens, earth, and sea. Two creative acts: 1) creation of the basic form or essence; 2) shaping the "essences" into what we now recognize as things and processes.
First of all, I see the bible in a different way. I look at it as the myths of the religion. The masses of people are created on day six in chapter one. Adam and Eve are created in chapter two as the start of the story that is to become the Hebrew people. We behave the way we do because we are made in the image of god and therefore act the same way that god acts. We have all of his characteristics of personality.
