    I don't recall ever seeing the question asked if God has a conscience and if so, how does he justify his "Will be done"?

    It seems Bowser's god can't make up its mind and is forever experimenting. ''A God at play with itself'' in Bowser's words.

    I'm not trying to convert you. I'm still trying to fully appreciate the implications. The mind ego is one thing, reality is quite another.

    What are people always grasping for that they can't have: Security, Certainty, Permanence.

    What has that got to do with imperfection? How does their grasping make the world turn and enable their existence?

    Bob, what is it that I need to define, a word, an idea, a concept? Okay...
    As an example, the roof on my home is imperfect, which will force me to replace it in the near future. If it was perfect, there would never be a need to replace the roof.

    Here's another, my body is imperfect. It cannot sustain itself without nourishment. If it were perfect, there would be no need to eat.

    I don't know why you are splitting hairs over a word, but if you insist.

    You're the one who brought it up. Hopefuly, you would know what you were referring to.

    How then is that imperfection necessary for your existence?

    It looks to me like you're just throwing random phrases around without actually thinking about what you're saying.

    I do. I thought the implications were self-evident. My apologies for not clarifying it from the beginning


    Would you prefer a stagnant world?


    I'm kind of surprised it was necessary that I explain the point. Again, my apologies. It is an imperfect world.

    My preference has nothing to do with whether or not imperfection is necessary.

    I fact, I think many people would prefer stagnation.

    Are we in agreement that imperfection is perfection?

    Of course not. And black is not white either.

    Actually that is a nice metaphor for self-assembly into patterns. A perfectly probabilistic evolutionary process, not in any way suggesting a divine origin.

    See, this is what I mean about you throwing out random phrases and then refusing to discuss them. Did you really expect me to agree that opposites are the same?

    Perfection or imperfection...?

    I suppose it's a matter of interpretation.

    Hence religion. Thank you for describing it perfectly.

    I thought we might be in agreement, but asked nonetheless.

    Why would we be in agreement? Do you think I' m an idiot?
