We do have similar tastes. I like all of those. I also like U2 (especially their latest album) and Sting, Paul Simon, Nora Jones, KT Tunstall, The Fray... I'm just throwing names out there. There are way more. Heck, I like some of what the Gorillaz put out too. But I've never really gone to concerts...

Steve, That it was my presumption of what God is was a given. But really, that is the only God I can debate because I've concluded (with all due respect to my theist colleagues), as you have, that most others are open to inconsistancy. No; but, then again, parents aren't all-knowing, or all-powerful...

Ack! Lots of posts. But I think we're still down to Steve's question. What is the nature of God? If a relevant God exists, he will be good, all knowing (for all practical purposes), and all powerful (within the bounds of natural law). It is clear from the evidence of human experience as well as scri...

Dr. Mobius, I like that. I think that is a very apt analogy. The only problem is, if God doesn't exist then when we die we also cease to exist and will not know that we were right. The only way we could possibly know if we were right were if A) There is an afterlife, B) God existed, and C) we believ...

Do I represent the majority of religious thought? For people who take their religion seriously enough that they study it for themselves, yes. This is where my definition of pseudoreligious comes in.
