Baseless to you star, baseless to you, baseless to you star, baseless to you
No, the vast majority of your statements are fully baseless, supernatural assertions, offered up without a shred of evidence. You're so used to doing it that you're don't seem to be aware of what you're doing. It's a habit, and it's a bad one.
Your statements would be less bankrupt and less painful to us reading them if you would at least preface your baseless assertions by saying something like "I believe that God is this, or God is that", instead of "God is" as though you know it to be so when you clearly don't and can't.
...and it would explain more if you would put your anger away and start listening.
a) I'm not angry. What does cause me to possibly appear angry is when people like you make truckloads of baseless assertions with that cock-sure attitude. You love the facade of the airy-fairy lovey-dovey can't-we-all-just-get-along pap, but it's meerly a veneer for your utter arrogance that you think you know something when you don't. You believe it. You have faith; and only lies require faith.
b) Listening. There's a good example of your arrogance in disguise. You're asking me - a 50 something yr old individual who was born & raised in Christianity - complete with church summer camps, youth groups, witnessing, prayer meetings, bible studies, being baptized etc etc, and having read more books on the subject than you can imagine, and having intensely looked very very carefully at this topic in a critical and intellectually honest manner for the last 7 years, including well over 12,000 post in this and other forums..........all to have you waltz in and smugly suggest that I haven't been listening?!!!
I've been listening to you quite attentively, and frankly, I've been biting my tongue so much I think it's swollen. You seem to be under the illusion that being kind & sweet is all that matters, and that somehow that'll lead us to truth & understanding, when all it does is keep some people (like you) in a fog of delusional BELIEFS.
I'm really sorry you feel that way star.
So the world wouldn't be a better place if people were kind? If people really did unto others as they would have done to them, that would be a bad thing? No it would not be a bad thing because nobody wants bad things to happen to them, so they wouldn't do bad things to others. That's why I keep saying greed is mankinds strongest enemy, greed is the ultimate enemy. Greed creates these desperate people and desperate people do desperate things. Lonely isolated people, hurt people they do bad things, when I say bad, I mean bad,bad. Second to that is ego, everybody has to be right, everybody wants to be the richest, the fastest, the strongest, the smartest and yes people like that do enrich our world, but they should be humble about it and not mock someone that isn't as...
Another point I want to make about God belief and I'm going to defend a couple of Christian attributes here but if they didn't have that religion to keep their "spirits"up with scriptures like the parable of the rich man, they would not have any spirit left. They find joy without money and try to be thankful for the free things God gives and not worry so much about the things man's money buys.
I'm sure you are a very wise person for all your hard work, I've worked hard too. I've been in the gutters of life, I've paid my dues, i'm not that much younger than you, 40 something, and we'll leave it at that.
I'll get back tomorrow got to get some shut eye. Good nite all!
