Panentheism[edit]

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'.

Proofs of God's existence[edit]

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)

1Co 2:14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 

You can't prove a spiritual existence physically, you must first look spiritually to understand. Most people wont so they will never find out. God will not show you proof unless you are willing to put aside your pride and search for him. Instead of finding ways to prove he doesn't exist try to check to see if he does.Ultimate Slime 21:24, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Quote[edit]

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

Imaginary Friends[edit]

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)

Question[edit]

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)
