    If I meant that, I would have written that.
    Don't you think?

    Considering your remarks, and my asking if you don't think. That fits.

    I'm guessing humor isn't your forte. Is that an (intelligent) design flaw?

    Why stop guessing at that point?

    I haven't stopped guessing. We have that in common.

    Is that another guess, or are you going to commit?

    Why would I commit rather than guess? I only guess when I don't have evidence.

    So it is another guess then.

    Is it cause you dislike the word "theory"?

    God, of course, doesn't use a human language to communicate. He can communicate feelings in our Souls that help to guide us, but he doesn't wan to control us. If you own a pet cat, you will not want to control exactly what the cat does, but there are rules, that may appear arbitrary to the cat. For example, you may not allow the cat to sleep on your bed. The cat doesn't understand this rule. If the cat does manage to get on your bed, you don't lock it in the basement ! Similarly, God gives us rules, but he doesn't plan to punish us for ever, like some people have mistakenly thought. He just wants to gently lead us on the True Path.

    Thank you for taking your time to reply.
    You probably think I am a young man given my photo but I am actually old enough to handle facts rather than analogy.
    Moreover I miss the point you are trying to make.
    I thought God would send us to hell if we stepped out of line that is rather cohersive don't you think? Plus hell is forever.

    Do you realise God came from the worship of the Sun and nothing more other than folk making up stuff to suit themselves and building on that original idea.

    There were nine other characters in history all with the same MO as Jesus so it seems he ripped the idea of a man being personification of the Sun just like nine others before him.

    Which of those nine is the true God do you think?

    To be fair, you know more about God's plans than God does.

    To be really really fair it's hard to know plans or anything when you're non existent
    And I guess even I couldn't really really know gods plans, because he is non existent hence does not have any
    I could make up a claim that I know gods plans to show my superior knowledge and intellect but I am to honest to pull a cheep trick like that

    Why do I need food and water to live?
    Why do I need oxygen to breathe?
    What can't I just leave the earth and visit other galaxies?
    Why is my body so fragile and not impenetrable?

    All these and much more would I have provided for humans had I designed them.

    My wife says it's a shame I'm honest, I could put Joel Osteen out of business.

    Since neither God nor souls are making their presence known, your suppositions about how they work on are pretty weak ground.
