I am God
« on: 21/12/2006 00:34:11 »
i can prove to you that i must be god.
It is based on an idea presented by the philosopher Thomas Reid.
He said that all reason and logic and our ideas abut reality are based on certain unprovable but assumed to be true doctrines.
For example, the doctrine that 1 + 1 = 2 is not necessarily true, but we accept it as true, the only reason we say it is an un arguable true fact is that all the world accepts it as true.
The only being which knows what is true exactly is, according to reid, "God".
All of what God says and believes therefore is undeniably true and correct, where as our beliefs are possibly true, possibly false.
If god were to say that 1 + 1 = 3, then , as hard as it is to imagine,the world's populous would have to believe that if you had one apple and got another, you would have 3 apples.

Of course this would conflict with other assumed-to-be-true doctrines, like the idea of what 2 is, what 3 is, and how valid their senses are (they might be incorrectly perceiving the number of apples with their eyes, for example) .
The fact that 1 + 1 = 3 was from god (and therefore true by definition) would force them to reevaluate and discredit other assumed to be true doctrines in order to accept that fact.

Now, what if i choose as one of my assumed-to-be-true doctrines the fact that I am god.
If i assumed that as true, all my other perceptions would have to be true as well, because god is correct in all things.
Your perceptions might be incorrect, and  ARE incorrect if they disagree with mine, because i am god.
No matter what point you try to bring up to prove that i am not god, i can discredit it by the fact that your perception is flawed. If you tell me "Ok, if your god make this rock into gold" i will, however you wont necessarily perceive it as such. I could make you perceive it as such, but then you might be flawed in your idea of what gold is.
See my point? You cannot prove that i am not God, any logic saying so is flawed.

Like it !!..very clever !

This is why negotiation with people who believe that what they are doing is by gods will is futile. You can't negotiate or expect people with such a fundamental perspective to consider that there may be alternative ways of thinking...because...they are doing what they are doing in the name of God...so..how can they be doing the wrong thing ?

Thank you Realmswalker...good stuff.

Doctor Beaver claimed this last spring and went away for a little "vacation" at a "friends" house for a couple of months. He has been much better since.

No. This is false. Logic demands that 'true' be proven by a repeatable test. one apple and one apple always equal 2 by the definition of the numbers in the system of logic called arithmatic.

but my point is that the logic system called arithmetic might be flawed, or your perception of the results of a repeatable test could be flawed. You are stuck believing that you know things which are absolutely true, thats where you are wrong. You think you know things as absolutely true, the things you know and think are not absolutely true. Mine are.

Dear God,

I know you say you don't exist...so that would mean my prayer would not be answered by a nonexistent God...or no answer would that mean it was answered?

Amen!

 You can also not prove that I am not you. As a matter of fact, I am you. This makes you me. Talk to yourself, talk to other people, there is no difference. Hate other people, hate yourself, there is no difference. Pick a path, any path, all paths lead to the same source.

You are right, you are God. We're all God, but much more aptly described as aspects of God. What you must see is that Life does not give rise to conscious awareness, so that Life can grow and be enhanced. Consciously aware existence gives birth to Life so that consciously aware existence can grow and be enhanced. Science, religion, indeed EVERYTHING exists so that consciously aware existence, God, may expand, grow, thrive, enhance itself.

 God is available to every one of us, it is our brithright, and you need only to ask God whatever questions you have. Who can really say they have asked God to explain the meaning of your Life? If you have, you already know the answer. Most ask only when in dire circumstances, and never really commit to any process to those answers. Why not ask whatever it is you want to know, and wait for God to answer? Christian, Mulsim, Hindu, Buddhist, atheist, capatalist, whatever-ist or -ism you choose to be, just sincerely ask the questions and sincerely expect an answer from God, whatever the answer is. Then follow it.

OK, OK!

I bow down before the almighty, offering sincere obsequiousness, fawnings, sycophantic utterances in hushed, holy, reverential tones, seeking mercy.

Forgive me oh, Castor, for I know not what I did!
