Well, it is in my opinion that the being that set forth existance and all things stemming from existance the one we call "God" is an entity that, in our limited perspective, is inconcievable as of now to human beings.

I feel that the paramaters or lack thereof surrounding "God" are so far beyond our mental capacity that any attempts at understanding and then ,based on those skewed assumptions, forming a religon is blasphemous and incorrect.

If God is all knowing, then why must we burden him with our prayers and worship. If god is all forgiving then why must we repent for our humanity. If God is everywhere then why must we erect churches, temples, etc in his name. And most importantly, if God gave us the power of free will, then why must he test our faith?

That's a skewed quote from memory by a very wise woman, her name escapes my memory .

But yeah, those are just my thought as of right now in my life. Feel free to flame them, offer different opinions etc.

All Religons are just different opinions on the same thing.

Interisting Hyperbolic. To say the most. However, Your words tell me your thinking of a western deffinition of god. If we were made in his image. Then should we not have faith in our own logic. Since it's in fact devine?

But that is what i'm saying. If God made us in image to himself, then why would we need to prove our faith to him, if ,realistically, in the 90% of our brain we don't use we knew it. Then why would he expect us to show it when he himself knew we don't have the capacity?

Well I like to think that "god" is more or less the act of creation.
Your god is your father is his father is his father and gods image is that infinity incarnate through man. So, I mean, I wouldent think he knew we didnt have the capacity as much as ourselves know or knew it.

You make a good point there.

My only objection is that hrough studies of the brain we have proven that as of now we use less than 10% of it.

So what is held in the 90% of the brain that we don't use?

And my thought is the ability to comprehend better, but not fully, the idea of "God".

Thanks you New_Commer for the insight you have brought to my thread by the way. I appreciate someone who will actually discuss things rather than flame war them down.
