"Also, all of this "knowing" is usually something out of Evangelical meetings where the "holy spirit" seems to run wild and they all had a good service. This is no more than the civilized man's version of tribal nonsense."

"That old phrase heard too often from believers: "I know that I know that I know..." comes to mind here.  It's like a recursive subroutine, that calls itself, but hasn't a proper Boolean escape statement and thus runs on…"

"The Abrahamic God as described in the bible is anything but omniscient. The book would be better described as a parody of omniscience. I am not being snarky here. It often describes him as not "knowing wants happening or what will happen, and…"

Welcome, P.! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that’s on your mind, Hang With Friends.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. Writing to Congress is a group to share ideas so it's easy to write or call legislators.

After you’ve searched for topics of interest in “Groups” above and in the “Forums”, don’t forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
