Where are all the gods?

Deuteronomy 12:2
Destroy completely all the places on the high mountains and on the hills and under every spreading tree where the nations you are dispossessing worship their gods.

I can't speak for all the other gods, shit I can't even speak for God. But the God I believe in, aka Christian God is one that cannot be proven, and resides in your heart. He told us we have to believe by faith, and love people, and love Him.

So if you are looking for a sign, then it's most likely going to be a subjective one at best. Being a sarcastic Atheist probably won't help you, but who am I to judge, we each have our own paths. I know my path was pretty fucked up.

But that's my point, as you say, "he told us...". It is claimed that your Christian God told us things many times, even made a physical appearance for 30 odd years in the form of Jesus. How else could we have known about him if he hadn't appeared in some form?

Therefore, if it is true that he appeared before, it is true that he can prove his own existence. And with ease.

So why not appear now?

Re: Oh, gods definitely exist...
Reality-warping in response to prayer, somebody who cares, and a free ticket to eternal Disney World, remember! I'm going to ride "It's a Small World" infinity times!

Balls to that - Disney World was awful. Two or three decent rides, spread out amidst acres of wrongness.

You mean these guys?

As you can see, I even managed to take a picture of them. All you atheists out there will get that big thunderbolt up your asses.

I can see from your photo that the gods are German.

Holy Scheiss!

All of a sudden, everything makes perfect sense!!!!

Re: "True Perfection Has To Be Imperfect"
Wait, I'm god?

Of course you are. As am I. Message 4

Now the question is can we both be atheists and gods simultaneously?

I will leave it to your imagination to work out how we establish which one of us is the superior god.

Perhaps we have low self esteem so that we don't believe in ourselves.

You cannot leave such a decision to one of the interested parties, even if they are gods.

I, on the other hand, being merely mortal and independent of such interests do have the most perfect contest.

wanking himself into blissful oblivion

And ya gotta do it on your own. No help from Hera, Aphrodite, George, no help or porno of any kind. Completely on your own psyche and volition.

First one to fill a 5-gallon bottle.

Well, okay, so I haven't been there since I was a kid. But remember all the resort stuff? Faith in the god in my closet rewards you to an all-expenses-paid eternity of everything Disney World has to offer, including all of the adult stuff! It's more than just rides, they have great food and shows and other cool stuff!

And really, it's competition is eternity stuck in a Teletubbies episode. Even if Disney World isn't your idea of heaven, wouldn't you at least want to avoid that?

Have you read the Old Testament?

That was my satirical way of saying the bible is nonsense.

To add to the mystique!!! God loves a good mystery novel.

As a god we can be anything. But not believing in gods, while still being one, doesn't make you an athiest. It makes you selfish.

I say we go the oppposite direction to establish godlyness. The power to withhold said task from my daily ritual would take all the power in the universe. Thus if I am "master of my domain" for a longer period than you, I'm god.
