  1. Nope. Nothing to add... quite self-explanatory. Just that I like the idea and it's great for some peace fo mind. Thank you!
  2. Just a little side note (though still on topic). Fun for a bit of "light" reading (pun intended) and says (again) more about people than about any (real or perceived) deity: Nightfall — by Isaac Asimov.
  3. Unfortunately there are a lot of ignorant people who seem to lack the ability of logical thinking (either by lack of intelligence or by consistent brainwashing) providing enough oxygen and fuel to keep the temperatures high and the flames going...
  4. Or... we start taxing assets/profits more (instead of work) and introduce 'universal basic income' ASAP... PS. and I am not "looking for a job" myself, nor afraid of being unemployed or without income myself...
  5. Cool, thanks! EDIT: found the 2014 edition online: https://1lib.nl/book/5830972/941ee0?id=5830972&secret=941ee0
  6. Which book (so I don't have to watch an half hour of video; I can read faster than he speaks...)?
  7. Thank you for making that point. We more or less just summarised my Bachelor' thesis' conclusion... PS and - of course - I also acknowledged my own personal biasses...
  8. Doesn't that (kind of bias) apply to all human analysis (more or less)...?
  9. Funny... my bachelor's thesis was actually on the political philosophy of Star trek (and the conclusion wasn't pretty)...
  10. Although the point is valid and the video entertaining (to those who are open to the argument) it is open to an 'argumentum ad absurdum' critique... Anyway, I enjoyed it. Gave me a chuckle. Thanks!
  11. Would second that, only adding: good sleep, honest work/purpose, good friends/family.
  12. Now you're assuming - to stay with the comparison - we are talking about a light switch. What if it is a dimmer..?
  13. Why are you so sure? Isn't that exactly what it's supposed to mean...?
  14. Exactly, he's got no problems with infanticide... very loving. Have fun with him, for eternity... Terrorism at its finest. PS as I've said before: I think the basic question and topic of this thread has been answered: because it's a schizophrenic god (dividing himself in several personalities) that pretends to be all-knowing and all-powerful but because of his issues with obviously not being any of these (because even with free choice he knows the choice in advance and chooses to set things up so people can fail) he has to do some masochistic "sacrifice" t
  15. And there we go with the threats again.. such a loving god Dan's god is...
  16. You're welcome. And you make a valid point (again). Although you must admit he's not "poop[-ing] all over the board" lately and refraining from off-topic posting... Although, having said that, I am asking myself why would someone who is so single-minded even want to be part of an interfaith community like this one... but now I'm wondering off-topic. (Maybe a nice new topic?)
  17. Don't bother, everything that needed to be said to answer the question has been said. No fun in watching extremists jump through hoops just to make their beliefs fit reality... thank you for your insights!
  18. Sounds a bit masochistic to me... I mean, If you know you're an eternal being then "dying in the flesh" seems utterly pointless, doesn't it? He could do it infinite times... he's eternal anyway, isn't he? Not to mention it sounds a bit sadistic too. If you're almighty can't you just create a perfect world? One where my free choices will always lead to "good" outcomes, no matter what path I choose... All very limited from a god that's supposed to be all-knowing (so "original sin" was known in advance) and almighty (but still chooses to create that imperfect world but the
  19. And don't forget that to the faithful it MUST be true because else their whole world(-view) collapses. It isn't "optional".
  20. But Jonathan, that is al justifiable! Original sin et al. Remember? [/sarcasm]
  21. [...] he commits infanticide... oh wait! 🤔
  22. Yeah! Because infanticide is "righteous"... oh, wait... 🤔
