A Few Questions
Welcome to EvC, "Real God." Lest we get out of line, I shall, if I may, refer to you as The All-Smitey. (Long i sound)

We all need not introduce ourselves since you are said to know ALL things, but why this war in Ukraine? Lots of children and mothers are dying for no reason.

Can you smite Putin for us, or is this just allowing human free will to run its course?

Is the Bible simply a human imagined book? If so, we have a lot of work to do getting to know you.

One guy in Canada says our only mission, basically, is to give everything we have to others.

Another guy in Deep South Texas tells us to throw you away.

I rarely listen to humans when it comes to you, however. But of course you already knew this. If any smiting is to be done at EvC, let me be the first to be judged.These guys here are critically thinking secular humanists, by and large. If you say one word about Creationism they will turn on you...but you knew this too, eh?

Finally there is another God, Mr.Deity, who is no real threat since He was once Morman.

So do you have a message for us? Make your first message your best message, Sir. (I'll be silent now)

Re: Thread Copied from Proposed New Topics Forum
I always used to like giving a kid a chance to stay and learn, but the liklihood is that this person is no biological child and likely a hit & run. If he has any Godlike influence in his/her mind, he/she may decide to stay and discuss his/her favorite aspects of a universe holding to the mythos and reality of God. Or maybe just ask a science question.

Re: A Few Questions
Its an easy persona to sustain if you are, in fact, God. It is (a) difficult if not impossible persona to duplicate or counterfeit.

All that you need to do is pinch yourself, drink a bit of coffee to clear your head, and swear off the discipline of philosophy when attempting to define theology.

Re: Irony of the year
The real irony around here will be when the group of secular humanist intellectuals are confronted with events that cannot be explained.|

They will attempt to do so anyway, being careful to leave any "God stuff" out of the explanation.

Re: Thread Copied from Proposed New Topics Forum
This anti-theistic thinking seems to invoke a bunch of fake gods in more ways than humor. We know that Mr.Deity is a disgruntled ex-Mormon who found a job in theology bashing. Just give it up and give us a sunny Sunday sundae sermon.
