From this website and from the Christian Guitar forum.
I have been bombarded with logical arguments (Logical from a different perspective) as to why God exists.
I can not answer those logical arguments. My responses have no influence on the people who have engaged me in discussion.
I am beginning to feel they are right, and I am wrong.
So I have to ask myself, why have I taken the illogical position of being an atheist.
Stated simply Why do I not believe in God.

I have no good answer, at least no good answer until now.

I thought of this while drinking my Schewitzer Blitzer”  Trademark jdrnd
See the “what are you drinking thread for more information”

What if the reason I don’t believe in God is because I am God.

If I am God, of course I wouldn’t think that another being was better than me, because I’m already the best.
Not sure why its so hard to get my supernaturalarity going, but I’m kind of working on it as I reveal to you all who I am.
The Schewitzer Blitzers have been helpful.


So now that I know who I am what should I do next?

You could start with some commandments.  I won’t be able to believe in you if you don’t provide a complete list of commandments.  There should probably be several of these and some should be about the naughty stuff so we know when to feel guilty pleasure when breaking them.

There is a point to the thread

As you and I peer out from our eyes and peruse the scene in front of us,
our conciousness makes it seem as if each of us is the sole observer of the world.
Each of us can imagine that we are the only true sentient being in the scene.
Everything else, including the other sentient beings (aka other people) that we think we observe could just be constructs of our imagination.  Even the things that happen to us (that are done to us) may be the sole manifestation of our conciousness.

You know the line on your post “and even in your new-found role…”,
well I made you post that.
There is nothing you can say to counter that;
well of course the reason why there is nothing you can say to counter that, is because I know what you are going to say before you say it.

This seems a bit of fluff that should be in the Funway Forum. Yer last post attempts to elevate it. The next one will decide.

No need for commandments.
I’m God
things happen when I want them to.
But I want you to think it was your idea if you do or say something.
If I don’t want you think it was your idea I will make that happen too.

Be sure to maintain your stock of Schewitzer Blitzers.

I started off by pointing out that many a believer has presented arguments explaining why they believe what they do. There is a degree of internal logic in what they say.
How can you question someones internal logic?
Perhaps that’s why I cannot change EN’s mind.

My internal logic suggests to me that the reason that I cannot believe in a “super” sentient being with powers greater than mine is because I am that “super sentient being.
How else can I explain my atheism?

There are a number of ways that one can explain my atheism without invoking the notion that I am God.

There are also an a number of ways of explaining why some one does believe in God.

Nhoj,
I suspect that you think that I might be amenable to to exploring other reasons as to why I am an atheist.

ah hem, actually I know you think that… after all I’m God.

but why can’t people with faith be amenable to other explanations also?

I guess we’re going to the funway with my next response.

Trioonity is a ....thinking

Trioonity is like   ...more thinking


Trioonity is like purple ice cream

How does one know that one is not God?

For example.
If there is no free will, then what ever god is destined to do, God will do.
If it was preordained that I was to post this thread, then here I (as God) am doing it.

To the theists,
Did Jesus have a choice?
He was God and it was preordained that he should go through with the “song and dance” that we all know and love.
He did it as God and yet there were plenty of people then (and now) who know he is not Really God.

I am God.
Why?
Because I say so.
How many people doubt that I am?
and if they do, does it make a difference?
