Just feeling the waters. I use the name God a lot because if I use the names that best describe my feelings of a higher intelligence no one seems to understand. I would prefer to use the Oneness or All-That-Is. I don't really care what others believe in, or whether they are theists, deists, atheists, whatever. Yes, I have heard all the arguments from all the sides of this debate. I would just like to discuss the arguments in a civil, friendly atmosphere. I don't know if such a thing exists. The minute I say something contrary to someone's belief I get pummelled with expletives. No, I don't feel sorry for myself, actually I feel good nearly all the time. I don't try to sell anything to others, but even when I mention my own thoughts I am sometimes accused of that. In what I believe there is no advantage of believing in this or that. Hard to explain it is.
