[edit] Panentheism

I reworded the definition of Panentheism to be one that is found more often in google type searches. If you want to revert, that's cool, but I'd appreciate a cite, since the definition you provided is not one I heard in school (but that was, admittedly, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth.) I used the definition from ReligiousTollerance, for what it's worth.— Unsigned, by: WaitingforGodot / talk / contribs

I was going with the Bishop Berkeley-esque version that I was taught at school, actually. To be honest, I think they're both sides of the same coin - while God-in-everything and everything-in-God (pan-en-theism, as our tutor taught it) seem different, you get similar results. --InterpretedThe stupid evil bastard hath said in his heart, 'there is no 4 corner simultaneous 4-day time cube'.

[edit] Proofs of God's existence

According to perfectly flawed clear logic, over 600 points proving that god exists. I like 312 in particular http://www.godlessgeeks.com/LINKS/GodProof.htm — Unsigned, by: 189.10.119.226 / talk / contribs

Spaghetti making equipment exists, vegetable spaghetti exists and there are vegetable spaghetti-isers.

Therefore the Flying Spaghetti Monster exists. 86.191.125.169 (talk) 23:36, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Quote

'He was a self-made man, for which God was truly grateful.'

[edit] Imaginary Friends

I think this article could benefit from the concept that Gods fulfill a psychological role in an alienated society, the same role that is filled by talking to oneself (having imaginary conversations in one's head), but personified and externalized. 98.182.39.155 (talk) 14:16, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Question

Some would argue that the concept of God/the Gods arises in part out of 'trying to explain this complex world/universe (as us humans sure as did not', 'a sense of wonder/beauty' and 'why did these things happen' - and also as a means of fixing an ethical system.

So how come humans didn't invent more rational God(s)? 86.191.125.169 (talk) 23:36, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
