    (Filling in for EmptyForceOfChi)

    We live in Spacetime; we are part of the Universe.

    There is a history of our existence going back over 14 billion years... you are defiantly "here".

    You are unlike everything else in the Universe- you have free will.

    The rest of the universe is math based on pi.


    You were born into this Universe by your parents, but you are your own unique person.

    You were born here and not there for many reasons.

    God favors you because you are free-willed: you have the capacity for good or evil.

    This makes you like God: free-willed but bound to the laws of the undisturbed Universe.


    Today there are rocks God cannot lift because of Physics.

    So be it- God will exist in discrete particles.

    God will exist in every sentient being then-

    God exists in all of us; God is great.

    If you're really intending to take his place, what do you think is going to happen here? Are you hoping you might convert someone before you get banned?

    Too coherent, too few spelling/ punctuation/ grammatical errors.
    3/10, must try harder.

    A First Being is simply not possible, and cannot be kept alive by wishes.

    A first being is clearly possible as witnessed by the second..

    this is a religion forum..

    so wouldn't the comments about God not existing be trolling??
    the use of the word religion assumes God to exist.
    it would be like me posting in the science section saying that voltage does not exist..its just bad form..

    not saying you are not allowed to believe that god does not exist..just saying it would be more productive to assume god exists for sake of discussion,
    of course this does not prevent a users from asking 'why would God do that?' and then post their reasoning..

    and i don't think you would fit into chi's hat, as it is definatly five sizes bigger than most hats..

    i don't think god is a being. i think god is an entity that is larger than that, and yet everything, including beings of all types, are an extension of it.

    How is a first being so clearly possible?

    Also, imagination is now a witness?

    Correct.

    Not entirely accurate, but I'll let that slide.

    Except all other life forms in the universe. We're very much alike other life forms on Earth for starters.

    Objectively define "free will" and then demonstrate that "we" have it.

    Incorrect. There is no model of the universe or reality that is based on pi.

    People are not born "into" the universe. They are built by the universe through natural processes inherent to bio-chemical reactions.

    Incorrect. People share common behaviors and perceptions. What you could say is that people are unique instances of sapience... the uniqueness coming from their position in space-time.

    Objectively define "Good" and "Evil" and then demonstrate that humans have the capacity for it.

    No comment until the terms used are objectively defined.

    I think I'm somewhere about 350bn by now..but my predecessor had a predecessor and so-on in an unbroken chain right back to the first being (whatever that was)..Its just logic. If there was any divinity it's a bit watered down now I think. I'm not so good at the ol' miracle thing..Though many people think the things I've survived are highly miraculous. Maybe they're right!
