Children of Oblivion

For those of us who were rejected from the status quo, unfortunate enough to be sub-blue collar bred, ostracized for being intellectual. we dont watch your bloody reality shows, and we dont live up to your MILF housewife expectations.

"Have you read the 'short story' Talking to God? Someone posted it here on T|A, but I can't find it at the moment... You might like it also. I personally found myself thinking "if there is a god, this it what he should be."…"

Rev. Tom Hicks, D.D. commented on Art's blog post 'If there is a God...'
"Tell that to the Pope. The elite took the prized religion just to market it for their own profit. But yes, it would be nice to daydream of such a God. One that doesn't meddle in our affairs & loves us for who we are. Now I feel silly for…"

If there is a God...

Sometimes I wonder if i'm wrong. What if there IS a God? What would be his desires? What does he want from us?The more I think about the question the more I realize the obvious answer is.....nothing.An omnipotent being IS everything therefore he has no NEEDS or WANTS. A supreme being who manipulates the fabric of existence at will lacks nothing nor needs anything.A God who desires worship, praise and submission is not a God at all. These are qualities of men. And men who believe in such a God…See More

Art commented on Art's blog post 'The God Paradox'
"The point is that if we ever discover some superior being that created us and we realize that he does not have the 4-omni's (as your matrix example), this superior being would not be known as 'God' to us. Why? Because eventually we…"

Chris Britton commented on Art's blog post 'The God Paradox'
"I had kind of a funny thought about "God" being able to "un-God" himself. I agree that the omnipotence of god would make him able to "un-God" himself, but what does that mean? Once he"un-Goded" himself he…"

Art commented on Art's blog post 'The God Paradox'
"Exactly Scadilla. I could think of very creative ways to explain the concept but then it would never end. The point is that we CAN imagine the 4-omni's although when rational thought is applied, they do not make any sense. Hence why I wrote…"

Scadilla commented on Art's blog post 'The God Paradox'
"If he is everything then wouldn't he too be the rock? I know it's more of a rhetorical question, but my mind desperately tries to picture a practical approach to the question. I keep picturing a cartoony, Brutus type god lifting a rock…"

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/Atheist
About Me:
I used to be a Christian at early age and my obsession with the topic of religion and God compelled me to study science, history and philosophy in order to prove my faith the correct one. My studies had the opposite effect and I began questioning my faith until eventually the inevitable happened. I realize the universe is too enormous and there are too many questions unanswered to subscribe to any particular religion or metaphysical schools of though. I love knowledge and I love seeking truth.
Why are you here?
I have an enormous appetite for intellectual conversation and unfortunately that is something we rarely practice in our daily routines. I want to talk to you.
The religion you left

The God Paradox

Posted on February 25, 2009 at 8:30pm 6 Comments

One of the first things I notice when the question of God's existence comes up is how very little is discussed as to what God actually IS. It seems to me that if we are to make progress in this debate, we have to take time to actually reconcile our perceptions of what God actually is in order to debate his existence in the first place. In this blog I will present what I believe the concept of God actually IS and why its important to "simplify" our perceptions of God in order to fully appreciate… Continue
