It is not my fault if I cannot accept your beliefs. I don't know why you would think it would be.
I also don't understand why you want to stop our discourse.
You have a view of existence that I don't have. I have a view of existence that you don't have. If we keep them secret from each other, who loses?
I don't see how you can call my writings "blasphemous rants." I am not blaspheming anyone.
I am merely pointing out that much of what religious people say about God is in error, and can be corrected with a little thought if they would but think about what they are saying instead of just repeating what others have told them.
I am sure that if they would create God in a more realistic way, they would benefit by not having so many doubts about their beliefs.
I am not angry. Someone else said I was too, but I am at a loss as to why you two saw me in that manner.
I asked my wife if she had any idea as to why anyone would see me as angry when I am discussing something serious. She said I sounded as if I would brook no argument. I can see that is probably true.
I don't see how I can change that. I realize I am a bit lacking in empathy, and probably that causes me to write and speak as I do. I don't know how anyone can see that as my being angry, but evidently they do.
Thankfully, I can't come through the ether and hurt anyone, so there's that.
The part about my having no depth of soul if I can only understand what I can see, that kinda blows my mind. Understanding only what I see is the cornerstone of my philosophy of life.
I think you might have been referring to your belief (? ) that since I cannot see God, I don't believe He exists. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
When I say, "I see something, " I mean not with my eyes, but with Mind.
Like, I can "see" my thoughts. I can "see" that I am hungry. I can "see" God.
I am not an atheist, I am just not religious.
When you "cast your pearls," you are casting a religious God. That is meaningless to me. The God I worship is really "closer than my breath."
He is so close that I cannot separate myself from Him any more than a cell in my big toe can separate itself from me and claim to be what it is not.
I won't change, but are we cool?
