Is your thinker broken today parking places or is it say anything as long as you don't agree on even a secular concept with a theist? IfGod was not the object of blame in the following quote who or what is?
By the way, Harbinger, if your god can't provide consistency across individuals, then you have no reason to be surprised about the variation in religious temperaments and susceptibility.
Um, the people who claim there is a god are at the reasons there is so much variation, even within one religion. Not the non-existent god. It is the people who can't provide the consistency, not the god figure.
You want me to agree to a definition of god or a definition of love and to do so, you have to keep both mysterious enough that the best we can do is agree on a generic term or two.
Love may be ethereal, just like your god, but at least it can be experienced, won, lost and/or missing. Tests for its validity can be established ("Daddy beats the crap out of me every day, he must not love me" or "My wife must love me, she's put up with me for 40 years and still smiles when I come home, plus she's never poisoned the cookies.")
People mess love up all the time, but they usually know it because they get feedback. Breakups, divorces, never being spoken to again, etc. You can do whatever the heck you want with the god thingy and never know if you got it right because the only feedback mechanism available is from the same imagination that conjured him up in the first place. Which doesn't count.
As screwtape said, you can only think that you know that you've been saved. Because, by your own (and all other christians) admission, everything has to be done via the vehicle of faith. Which, no matter how much you love it, is never visible, never touchable, never experienced directly.
You think you're in a Ferrari, while we see a guy sitting in the middle of the road, saying "vroom, vroom, vroom". Sadly, we also see that you're not alone. A lot of others are sitting in the middle of the same road, making the same noises, and thinking too that they have it all figured out.
And our biggest shortcoming, on the other hand, is that we haven't yet figured out how to get the truth across to all of you yet. But thanks for helping us try.
