Feedback needed

Post by godman on Fri Oct 15, 2010 5:18 pm

Of all the churches and belief in god and the bible, the truth is the bible is not god word.
god is real and there is a afterlife, I only know so much of what I see, there are words
all over, on the ground trees clouds etc, other people see these words too, and I have seen
the words, god did not write the bible, take photos of the grass dirt carpet etc, tell me what
you think

Sorry, I"m not a Christian if that is the god you are talking about.

I suppose that these "words you see on the ground, trees, clouds" are just analogies? You're not actually seeing words, are you?

But no, the bible is not the word of a god, but of men who lived in that time.

It is a wonderful piece of literature.

I don't care if your god is real or not, or whether the afterlife you strive for is there or not.

I am on a different path.

I say it's whatever discourages your being mean to others and beyond that gets you through the dark and stormy nights. Believe what does those for you.

(And better still, shut up about it unless specifically asked.)

God is real...TO YOU. Not to everyone.
How do you know there is an afterlife? How can you say so definitively that there is? You been there?

All I can say is that I just now looked at the carpet and saw no words, godly or otherwise. Guess I'm just not a visionary or something...(emphasis on that "or something").

You don't EVEN want to know what I saw on my carpet! Suffice it to say that, Thanks to Crystal, the maine coon who gorges herself then yarks up half of it, I will be cleaning carpets this weekend.
Spot cleaning, graned, but I HATE dragging that damn cleaner out.

I don't know what it is...Crystal will go for months eating normally, then for a week or so she'll just flat pig out, then, well you know... Occasional bulimia?
She gets Cat Lax several times a week to help her pass hair balls, so I know that's not it. I think she just does it to piss me off.

Oh, while I'm thinking about it.... What feedback, exactly, were you looking for? Validation? You want us to agree with you? Tell you you're wrong? Tell you what we believe?

I have been alive 34 years and never heard anything about this, when I saw
this and talked to a few people who do see this I started thinking and stayed quiet.
but what struck me is 50 million people have died in the usa alone from 1900 to 1950.
children mothers brothers sisters that have holes ripped in their hearts and
never see them on earth again.

Are you questioning where the 50 million people went? I'm still not sure what feedback you are looking for......

how the earth was created and scientists today that want to know what stars
are, and they will be just gone that would be unfair.

THAT is not an answer to what I asked... I ASKED... WHAT FEEDBACK ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? Do you want validatio? WHAT?

It IS a matter of your belief. You don't KNOW what is there. YOU can't prove it. You believe something... So what? My kid believed in Santa...Doesn't make him real.

So? Probably 100 times that many have died in the world? SO? Big deal... People are born, people live, people die. It's called "The Circle of Life"....

WTF is THAT supposed to mean? Dude...You need help. You better tread carefully, because, in here, you disrespect us by trying to preach and us and convert people, aka Proselytize, we WILL shut you up. You won't like it, but you WILL be shut up, and down just ask internetmystery.

And that's my point. Whatever revelation you've gotten is for YOU. No one else really wants to know about it unless they ask you. Get the hint yet?

I will not shut up

That was pretty much a given since you offered the information in the first place.

go ask your aunt

Huh? I'm guessing this is a joking reference to the movie Dorothy's Auntie Em? If not, I have no idea what you mean.

I have a feeling that godman is saying something that is said and has meaning in another language and culture but doesn't translate well.
