In this thread my only hope and objective is to reveal the love of God through his grand ways. By the time this thread has lived up to its goal all will be in awe of his grandeur and nobility but most importantly his LOVE for humanity. Yet be warned this is not inherently meant to be a scientific debate though some elements of science may crop up in the discussions from time to time, but of course with the sole purpose of illuminating God's grandness. This is chiefly a theological debate but everyone's welcome to participate; be that as it may, not that I discourage opposition viewpoints I will encourage curious folks to spend less time finding fault and more time reading about the greatness of God as it unfolds on their screens and asking questions where they fail to understand or beg to differ. I also call upon fellow believers to aid me in this quest, my goal is to make this as open-ended as can be, so please dont shy away from making known your knowledge of God, God is immense and I could never single-handedly be able to unfold him.

O Lord, our Lord, whose glory is higher than the heavens, how noble is your name in all the earth! When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have put in their places. What is man, that you keep him in mind? the son of man, that you take him into account? (Psalm 8:1,3,4)

Indeed what am I that you bother to care about me, you are so far out of my reach yet just close enough to satisfy my deepest needs. To start this debate I would like to hear some personal viewpoints about God's greatness, please start posting.

The following quote is added by edit by Adminnemooseus:

Cedre, at another topic, writes:

Well it's suprising for you to ask that question, my man, where've you been all this time, don't you get outsite of the house every so often to marvel at the beauty and sheer genius of nature. The hand of God hasn't been more evident in nature since the birth of science that has started unravelling the cell to unearth such involutions as the citric acid cycle, glycolysis and the various transport mechanism involved in generating useful energy, the slitting of the DNA helix ending up in two daughter DNA, transcription, translation I'm out of breath at this point but no doubt the list doesn't take my loss of breath in account it continues on smoothly. The hand of God is evident and logic supports that notion, science may not be able to validate his existence beyond a shadow of or doubt but it sure does a brilliant task at revealing his handywork in nature.

Show me the "grandness"
In the topic title:

The Almighty God revealed through his grandness

and in the message body:

To start this debate I would like to hear some personal viewpoints about God's greatness, please start posting.

As the topic starter, it's on you to cite some of this "grandness" and "greatness". Or is that Psalms quote supposed to be it?

Re: Show me the "grandness"
Thanks for being the first person to commentary on my thread. You fail to understand the route I've taken with this thread, this is a strategic move, you'll witness the effect of it in due time, I have it well plotted out. Well do you actually have a viewpoint pertaining to the theme of the thread or are you simply a barrel of criticism.

Well, at this point there are only four possible respondents. :)

Well do you actually have a viewpoint pertaining to the theme of the thread...?

My viewpoint is that your titular assertion "The Almighty God revealed through his grandness" has no backing in your message 1 (or message 3). What is this "grandness"?

...or are you simply a barrel of criticism?

At this point in the topic, it's my job, and the job doesn't pay very well.

Material quoted from another topic added by edit to message 1
I've added Cedre material from another topic, to message 1 of this topic. That added material should be enough to launch this topic.

Stand by for promotion to "Faith and Belief".

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source
