36 pages in and you guys can't come up with a yes or no answer to "Does God exist"?

God does exist in the minds of those that want him/her/it to exist and no where else. Those 36 pages say that. loud and clear.

For those deniers here is a test.  Start with absolutely nothing and produce an acorn knowing full well that in time one acorn can repopulate a forest.  So be it.

For those believers here is a test. Start with absolutely nothing and see how long "god" keeps you alive.

Having trouble with the idea of infinite existence, or existence outside of time?

Well, it’s been an article of contention for centuries, but I always found it strange that folks will have a difficult time believing that the universe has always existed, but no problem at all believing God always existed.  I’ve heard the lengthy explanations many times, but once you get through the twists and turns, there’s still no logical reason why one makes more sense than the other.  Some of the religious arguments are so mind boggling, like the circular time explanation, they’re clearly designed to get the receiver so lost they forget the question.  At the end of the day it all comes back to notion that only God has no starting point.  Centuries of clerical logic-twisting can’t make that go away.

God is, God always was and always will be. :howdy:

Well, he could drop in and explain that to us all, but that would defeat the purpose of the faith-virtue.  If God came down and explained it all, we wouldn’t have much need for religious leaders, or their texts.  That would sure put a lot of people out of work.  ...And so we go back to the free-choice argument to tell us why we just need to have faith and tow the line to pass the test.

No one said it was going to be easy, lol

Meditation can connect the spirit with God. With this spiritual connection one can feel the Holy Spirit. I have and so has my wife. What an amazing peaceful sensation. It's like being on cloud nine. :howdy:
