lol trust the "fan"attics, more like lunar-ticks, i mean, those stuck in their lunar (mind) attic to attack and flood this thread with bi-bull bye-bull babble babel bullshit :P

but to think about it for a minute... in a way... I could see how you could say yes...

after all, our God may only be the God of this galaxy. Maybe he's buddies with dozens of other Gods and they all go out for drinks on Sundays. Maybe he's just the designated protector of this Galaxy. Maybe he's the scientist controlling this experiment for his thesis. ??

For me anyway, accepting the fact that God exists (and I won't go into the specifics, is he all loving, is he all doing, is he all knowing, etc) and continuing to wonder beyond that I eventually came to understand that there is actually more than God. God is not the end, nor the highest. Definitely, with the Human mind comprehending God's awesomeness is not possible, so trying to imagine greater is ever less probable, but I believe there is even more, in fact no end, no top.

So... in a way... considering that this reality and all above and below, simply exist for their various reasons, and people and Gods and everything above and below simply do what the do because it is what they are... Perhaps God understands, there is no top, no end goal, no big dog in the sky that has and end say in everything. Maybe the most powerful magician in this universe, but maybe not compared to upstairs?

Perhaps God wonders if there really is anything greater than him or not.

ps: is my avatar broken...? was working fine until now?... I'll look again tomorrow...


my initial response was just like yours: it doesn't make sense!
it's like asking a calculator a question and getting a syntax error in return. "you broke me" says the brain, in a little whimper :P

and then, just as you said. it does begin to make sense: if god is a "being" then the question of him or her being an atheist makes sense: if you turn it on its head, does it mean, does he believe in himself, or not? or does he believe in anything outside of himself? Is there anything outside of him/her/ it?

in my little opinion, the whole dilemma with "god" comes from theologians and philosopher's crossing over the principles of creation, with that of "divinities", there is something divine about existence, but when you realize, even the divine was created, and creativity is a principle of creation, not a quality one can either posess or not, the whole dillemma resolves itself.

as dlslith asked:
Whose God would you be referring to exactly?


the old mysterious one who parts clouds and all that, with a bear and a lightning bolt.

if jupiter aka jehova aka zeus is the "god", of this universe, what about suns and planets which are bigger than jupiter, for instance alcyone.

and if jesus is zeus aka jehova's son, why the whole issue with the trinity?

maybe jesus, as he presented to some, is a scarecrow. he does use the same pose in the depictions made of him by his followers.

Image

Image

to me... it is the enlightened, christ, willing to sacrifice himself, but fighting for life and defending himself.

experiencing god is about: death and resurrection unto perfection... as stated in the "just another book" thread in the reply to harry potterism.

someone said: if horses could speak they would talk of horse gods.
same with dolphins? i like the approach they have in india
~the yogi regards all beings as deities and is thus liberated~

to me, it (the trinity, the singularity) all seems to be alchemical / geometric allegory, disguising a deeper truth of existence, which some may content themselves to know the exoteric truth of, and others truly have to feel and experience for themselves.

:look:

How Many Gods Does God Say There Are?
Scriptures that show there is only one God

Some Bible passages are difficult to understand. Others are easy. The Bible has many plain, simple, straightforward, unambiguous verses, and these are the verses we should study first when we want to understand what the Bible teaches. Understanding the plain, straightforward verses then becomes our basis for understanding the more difficult verses. The plain verses become the foundation for the rest of our biblical understanding. We build on those.

By building such a foundation, we have something to go back to when we have difficulty understanding other verses. We can take the "difficult" verses and explain them within the context of the plain, straightforward ones. This assures us that our explanations and understanding conform with the foundational verses.

Rather than throw out or ignore those simple, straightforward verses, we should throw out the explanations that contradict them. This is sound reasoning, and in theological terms, fulfills the requirements of sound exegesis. With that in mind, we will list a few straightforward verses about God. Specifically, we will study verses that discuss how many God is.

Exodus 20:2-3: "I am the Lord your God.... You shall have no other gods before me."
Exodus 34:14: "Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God."
Deuteronomy 4:35: "You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other."
Deuteronomy 4:39: "Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other."

1 Samuel 2:1-2: "My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high.... There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God."

Give ear, O Lord, and hear; open your eyes, O Lord, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to insult the living God. It is true, O Lord, that the Assyrian kings have laid waste these nations and their lands. They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by men's hands.

Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.": "This is what the Lord says — Israel's King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.

Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come — yes, let him foretell what will come. Do not tremble, do not be afraid.

Isaiah 45:21-22: "Declare what is to be, present it — let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, who declared it from the distant past? Was it not I, the Lord?

John 10:30 Jesus said "i and the Father are one" this is the main reason the Jews wanted kill him. He was crucified for Blasphemy.

I don't understand "Jesus Christ God"? Jesus is Jesus, God is God, why do people mix them up all the time?

I skipped some of the steps you're taking here without thinking about it though... I was assuming asking God if he is atheist means asking God if he doesn't believe in an Ultimate creator. In which case I rambled on about things being more powerful than God. Not that God has a beginning or an end, many would argue that you to have no beginning nor end, you simply are, and always will be.

Asking God if he believes in himself is kind of... an oxymoron? or something of that nature so I hadn't really considered it...? That's another way to look at it though.


Well yes, Jesus Christ is God and he said this more than once. He was the God who spoke to Moses through the burning bush. Jesus God the son came to earth and lived as a man and lived without sin. Who died on the cross for our sins as the lamb of God. 3 days later defeated death...anyhow, the point I'm talking about is the Holy Trinity...

A great book to read is Bible Doctrine by Wayne Grudem

Post by Malkere » Thu Jan 05, 2012 4:18 pm

the initial response is, that makes no sense.
but to think about it for a minute... in a way... I could see how you could say yes...

after all, our God may only be the God of this galaxy. Maybe he's buddies with dozens of other Gods and they all go out for drinks on Sundays. Maybe he's just the designated protector of this Galaxy. Maybe he's the scientist controlling this experiment for his thesis. ??

For me anyway, accepting the fact that God exists (and I won't go into the specifics, is he all loving, is he all doing, is he all knowing, etc) and continuing to wonder beyond that I eventually came to understand that there is actually more than God. God is not the end, nor the highest. Definitely, with the Human mind comprehending God's awesomeness is not possible, so trying to imagine greater is ever less probable, but I believe there is even more, in fact no end, no top.

So... in a way... considering that this reality and all above and below, simply exist for their various reasons, and people and Gods and everything above and below simply do what the do because it is what they are... Perhaps God understands, there is no top, no end goal, no big dog in the sky that has and end say in everything. Maybe the most powerful magician in this universe, but maybe not compared to upstairs?

Perhaps God wonders if there really is anything greater than him or not.

ps: is my avatar broken...? was working fine until now?... I'll look again tomorrow...
