You [#2738]
« on: April 20, 2013, 01:25:30 PM »
Hello. I have seen your thoughts.

A question for you.

I know you did not have a father.

But if you did, and your father said "no," would that mean he wasn't real?

You cannot bully or push God around. And you are not going to change His mind. But you can ask Him your questions. And believe that He will answer you.

Love,
[name removed]

Ps- Yeshua/Jesus is the one name in Heaven and on Earth by which we must be saved.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Hello. I have seen your thoughts.

Really? Are they in color? If so, how many? Did it look like it was all stirred up or did it appear like a 3D display of fractals?

I haven't seen my own thoughts, so I'm not sure what they look like. I've never seen my own anus, either, but my gastroenterologist told me that I have some external hemorrhoids, and I'm sure they are colorful on occasion.


A question for you.

I know you did not have a father.

I don't think that's a question. Usually when a question occurs there is this funny little symbol at the end that looks like this:

?

Well, anyways, I did have a father. It's impossible to not have a father, and I have 23 reasons to know that I had a father.


But if you did, and your father said "no," would that mean he wasn't real?

Oh, look! Now there's a question mark. ^  Maybe you were so engrossed in viewing my thoughts that you got your own out of order.

My father said "no" on many different occasions, but sometimes he said "yes". He also said other things. He often strung multiple syllables together to form sentences. It was fascinating.

Did your father do the same?


You cannot bully or push God around. And you are not going to change His mind. But you can ask Him your questions. And believe that He will answer you.

God? What god? Where does he live? I haven't met him. You know, I have shouted out his name on more than a few occasions and he has never shown up. I don't understand why.


Love,
[name removed]

Thanks for being so polite and kind, even though you seem a little odd. I love you too.

Jesus? Is something wrong with Jesus? He did some work in my back yard a few years ago, and I hope he is okay. Was he hurt?

I do have a father.  Your line of questioning fails.

Quote

"No" to what?  Without context, your question makes no sense.

Quote

Because god is imaginary.

Been there, done that.  Nothing came of it.  Why?  Because god is imaginary.

You know whats awesome? Well I'll tell you anyways...

I love my dad, he was awesome when I was growing up (even though we didnt always agree and sometimes got into it) and he's awesome still!

But growing up, he and I butted heads a few times as I got older, as two males are likely to do; and though he was way stronger than me he never physically assaulted me, even when we stood nose to nose mad as hell, and I cursed him. Not a punch, a grab, a head lock, nothing. He would always explain his view reasonably when the time was right for him.

We had a basement, we had gasoline, we had matches and lighters... But he NEVER threatened to lock me in the basement and burn me forever. I guess, it is different, because its not like I didnt believe he existed. I knew/know he existed because he was always there whether I was right or wrong, made sure I never needed for anything... the way a father should, especially when he's capable. There was no way for me to think that he didnt exist.

See, there's a difference between my dad and yahweh. My dad was there, and he never sent a representative of his to tell me that he was going to torture me forever. May dad is so much better than yahweh that I may call him and apologize to him when I'm done here, for even comparing him to that absentee, deadbeat skydaddy of yours.

Real dads are awesome buddy. Imaginary ones.... well, theyre not.

Now that's true. It is true in the same way you can't push unicorns, pixies and Harry Potter about. We all agree that it is impossible to push things around that don't exist.

Hello. I have seen your thoughts.

Prove it.  I have just thought of, and written down, a multi-digit number.  Kindly post that number here in the Mailbox thread forthwith.

Either your knowledge is flawed, and/or you are a liar, and/or you require emergent psychiatric assistance.  In any case, I do not envy you and do not aspire to descend to your level of intellectual malaise.

Everyone has a father; whether they're in their child's life is another story.

Quote

Make sense much?

Quote

True. But because it doesn't exist.

Quote

Would contradict my response above if I did something like that.

How can something and someone not proven to exist (or long dead for that matter) save anyone?

Awww, now you've used my most favorite response to the religious:  "prove it".  Prove it with the most basic verifiable proof that you would demand of any scientific claim.  It never happens.

Am I the only person here to read this as the writer suggesting that we are "the b word"?  Sounds a bit like it rhymes with "fast card", that I can't type at work?
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.

A question for you.

I know you did not have a father.


One: That isn't a question
Two: That is physically impossible.
Three: I saw my father, when he punished me, it was so I could learn I did wrong; he didn't leave garbled instructions through a baby sitter that said things I couldn't believe in, then set me on fire for not following them.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

Your post made me wonder if the letter writer experiences synesthesia. That would explain seeing thoughts.

So, what do your colors smell like?


Quote

Since you have postulated that he said "no" rather than not showing up and not responding, then that father would be real. Now if he was never around and when I tried to communicate in the approved manner but never received a response then I'd begin to think he was dead or a douche. (Since fathers are required to produce another human. But gods are not.)

Mmm, bully and push god around. Oh Yahweh, forgive me for asking you to prove you exist, I didn't know that is the same as bullying you.
