Things I wonder about....

Post by allthegoodnamesweretaken on Thu Oct 18, 2012 12:13 pm

Alright, I was told to make a new topic on this.

I'm not meaning to be insulting or anything, but I can't look at the majesty and chaotic nature of the world and universe as a whole and understand how people see it from a monotheistic viewpoint. I just don't get it.

It would be easier to sit and say that those that do are just being intellectually lazy, but, Tina states it is a position that has been well thought out.

I wonder if one of ya'll would care to enlighten me.

Remember, I am not an atheist saying that they can't see the actions of deity in existence. I am a polytheist saying that one deity cannot be nearly enough.

A very creative one could. Look at all the art, inventions, and ideas that DaVinci had. One very creative person did that.

The size and scope of the universe contrasted with the minutia of daily life? I just don't see it.

It's God. I see it. It's not just a man.

It isn't a choice between a god or mankind.
