Does God have limited vision (i.e. poor eyesight)?
« on: November 16, 2011, 02:47:45 PM »
In Genesis it says:

Quote
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

Does this mean that God can only see light in the same visible spectrum that humans can?

This suggests he needs the same sort of visible light that we see to perceive things himself, otherwise he would surely just look in other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum and not deem anything 'dark'?

Does this make sense? Or seem all-powerful? Does God use a torch at night?

well, being that humans created God, God has the same limitations that they did.   Adam & Eve could hide from God so he doesnt' have "x-ray" vision either.  ;)

It's a mis-translation. Should actually read - "And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light, and you could see for fucking miles."

True story. The KJV uses the word fucking several times I believe.... Mainly used just before Big G condemns men, women and children to death. "Fucking take that", he was fond of saying.

Its in there. Look it up. Its near the sports section if I recall correctly.

God was blind, but he created for himself a visor like the one worn by blind astronaut Geordi LaForge in 'Star Trek: the Next Generation' and so he can see more than the electromagnetic spectrum that ordinary humans can see.

It's because of this visor that god can see infra-red and look through the walls of your house to see you sinning when you think no one is watching. 

That's how god knows when people beat off.  He's uncomfortable seeing people beat off, that's why he has rules against beating off.

Now, Im not sure about that.  I think God likes to watch.  That is why He is all seeing.  Hell, better than pay for view.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Oh, so god is like Creepy Dead Grampa in the comic 'Family Circus' who voyeuristically watches all the stuff little Jeffy does?

lol... Yeah. I know the parts you're talking about. And there's a few sections where all the dialogue starts with "Truly I say unto you" and "Look, I'm fucking tellin' yas..."

'Course, my dad always used to say, when people start a sentence with things like "Honestly?" and "Truthfully?", there's a good chance that they're habitual liars if they feel such an overpowering need to let you know that they're being honest for a change.

I mean, when people talk to you, don't you naturally assume that they're speaking honestly? Hmmm???

I tend to overuse the words 'honestly' and 'truthfully'.  Am I a habitual liar?

I'm giving you a hard time, of course.  The reality is that I tend to use words like that (and "of course" and "frankly" and "seriously", etc) as verbal punctuation.

Hey, I think my old man had a point. Example: The drummer for an old band I used to be in. Dude was just the most dishonest, lie-for-the-sake-of-it bastard you've ever met. The kind of guy that lies even when it's completely unneccessary. He'd invent entire weekends that never happened. "Oh yeah I flew out to Chicago to meet up with a chick."... Meanwhile he must have forgotten that I HUNG OUT WITH HIM on Saturday!

Anyway, he'd *always* preface his statements with "Honestly dude?" and "You want to know the truth?" That's when I realized, pops actually knew what he was talking about sometimes.

Ever since getting to know that kid, I've noticed my father's half-assed words of wisdom are often more accurate than not when it comes to people in general lol.

"Seriously" is kind of similar, but I hear and say "seriously" as more of an adjective than a qualifier.  <shrug>

God sees the world with long wave UV so he can spot all the spilled semen. That's really important to him..
