If this world is only in the mind, why can't I fly, cast a Fireball spell, or instantly make Myself taller, thinner, younger, or even turn into a dragon?

Clearly you haven't earned enough XP to hit level 5 (for Fly and Fireball).  Shapechange is a 9th level spell, you've got a LONG way to go for that one![/thread derailment]

I guess I'm more ADD than AD&D.  Maybe I should sit down in a quiet corner of the dungeon and actually study that fireball sp...  Oh, look!  A rust monster!    ;D

Faith.  That's the thing, and its the reason why no Christians, ever, have ever been able to move a mountain.  Because their faith is far, far too small, smaller even than a mustard seed.

Its why heaven is empty.  No Christian has enough faith to change reality, ergo not enough faith for salvation.
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

But, you are forgetting China - by the moving mountains standard - the most Christian nation on earth.
