This thread must have been based on the implicit premise that, that "something" exists. :) Most (if not all) theologies do that. Not that I have any idea if the debate in this thread could be indexed under theology.

As to the existence of one or many Gods, there is only one logical explanation: WE DO NOT KNOW. We, as mere human beings, do not and CAN not know the nature of God. We can speculate, we can believe just about anything, but the truth will only be revealed when we die. Therefore, all the churches tha...

Re: Why do you believe what you believe?

I would like to know some other people's view points of why they feel they believe in God or don't. The reason I ask is because I would like to try to understand people's reasoning behind their beliefs in such things as God (or lack of) and religious practices. For me it's all about consistency (fr...

The only thing that says the rules are undeniable are the rules themselves. It's rather circular. That's exactly my point too. The problem is not "the game" (the meme itself is harmless, while having educative potential), but as KennEnder notes, the fact that this kind of "playing&qu...

"The Game" as described by BB is an example not only of arbitrary rules, but of arbitrary and non-deniable rules . I mean, there is a rule like : you can't not play the game after you are aware of it's existence. So it's not like you play the game because you've chosen to respect its rules...

This begs the question "Does the metareality matter?" If you think about it as another spatial dimension, we're all living on the same intersection of it. The reality of our plane is unaffected by the nature of the meta-reality. Isn't it? Edit: Imagine the metareality as a sphere, and our...

Scientists might be able to explain the how of "soul," but I don't see how that would necessarily negate the philosophy of it. I don’t think it will „negate” any philosophy. And it wouldn’t „prove” anything either, because as you say, science can answer the „how” questions...

Regarding the sex of God, I like what you said, KennEnder. What would physical sex mean to a singular being? It really seems more of a non-issue to me. Given your interpretation of "likeness", that's understandable. That question in particular is for those who voted "YES". A.
