Post Argument for God's Existence

God is the monistic entity of fundamental consciousness.


Definition of terms:

"is" means "="

"the" denotes a singular God and no possibility of multiple fundamental consciousnesses

"monistic" means that the only real thing is fundamental consciousness and all things are of that substance and modalities of its attributes.

"Entity" means that existence is an inherent attribute of the fundamental consciousness.

"of" means that God's substance is fundamental consciousness and that he is not a being created by fundamental consciousness.

"Fundamental" means pre-existent to the universe. Everything derives its being from it.

"Consciousness" Self-awareness and volition.


The Argument:

This being the case we would expect to find that consciousness is not confined to the workings of the central nervous system. We would find that the universe has order in it. There would be intermittent precognitive and extra sensory events in most people's lives at some time. We would consider compassion towards one another and toward animal life to be the highest moral good, and the more fundamental the sub-atomic particle, the more it would be affected and come to resemble mind rather than matter. Evolution would have an intended direction, and there would be methods of experiencing fundamental consciousness via our own consciousness. We find all of this to be the case in our universe. Therefore, God exists.

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

Egor, we need more data before we reach any conclusions. First and foremost how many women have you slept with so far?

Look at you all. Just like bullies stood up to. The argument is laid out before you and you're speechless. Oh, I'm sure you think you're cool, but you don't realize the symbology of your posts, all in line like that, with nothing to say.

I once went to a church that used to have a cross behind the lecturn. A decade later, I returned when I was stationed near that church while serving in the United States Air Force. The church had replaced the cross with a globe, and the preacher had gone from the gospel to health-and-wealth preaching. He was completely oblivious to the symbology of the globe.

You think you're being funny, but you're completely oblivious to the symbology of not typing a word.

Have you seen a picture of me when I was a young American Yank living in England during the eighties?

Be that as it may. I've been married to my current wife for 18 years, and I wouldn't so much as dishonor her by even flirting with another woman. After all, God probably loves her more than me, and I'm shit scared of God, so...
