Re: Human attempts to understand God

My Father provided plenty of bread but not so much knowledge. I was forced to find that on my own, though when a man has a full stomach he is not as desperate to find ways to earn his own bread.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

The good father doesn't necessarily spoon-feed his children, either with bread or with knowledge. He encourages them to earn their own bread and seek their own knowledge.

An honest discussion is more of a peer review than a pep rally. My toughest critics here are the people who agree with me. -- ringo

It must be convenient for you to be your own judge. Isnt it nice to wipe away all of your own sins?

I am an atheist.
On an unrelated-to-being-an-atheist note, I believe that each and every person that's-not-me has just as much right (perhaps more so) to judge me than any God that anyone has ever believed in.

I have over 8 billion real, living, current judges judging me.
Constantly.
I have to talk to some of them each and every day.

You have 1 judge judging you and you don't even have to look Him in the eyes until the end of your life?
Oh what I would give to have it so easy...
