<quoted text>DId you read that the angels were created to serve God and they look like men. I believe God was speaking to the angels when he first created man.
HUH...So the angels then must look like god....Your cult is so weird.

This might be true...but I have found there's really no need to "induce"
it in any way...It's a completely natural phenomenon.
It's more of a question of unbias awareness eliminating preconceived filters that limit perception.
not that I'm no expert on the subject...I'm strictly speaking from my own experience.
here's a Synchronicity experience for ya...I was thinking about Edgar Allan Poe The Raven, and had just brought up a picture of a crow on my computer...and almost immediately a crow, not ten feet from my window called out five times and flew away...I kid you not...just how it happened.
I might hear a crow call where I live about once a month or so, if I'm lucky...but this was way to much to be a coincidence.
I used the word 'induce' because we make the conscious decision to go to sleep. lol

Anyways, funny how you brought up the 'crow.' I used the term 'when the crow flies' on one of my poetry called "Temptation."
I know there's a connection here somehow. lol. Resist!

can we be friends? ;-)

Humility and Humiliation...Words so close......If god was even real I would not bow down to a god as vile and filled with hate and violence as the god of the buybull. Your god is a mean nasty bully who if doesnt get his way will stomp you into a pit of fire for eternity...Yea keep that crap ....NOT FOR ME.

How could a creature be made in God's image if "God is a spirit"?

Sorry, I must have missed that.

Name calling? On my part? Remind me of anything there. What I remember is suggesting that medical conditions exist or that politics is at work. I don't recall much in the way of name calling.

I'll set a place at the table for pathos in a debate. Are you getting pulled into your own prejudicial presumptions, just maybe a bit?

If we define the word in general terms maybe it means a representation or reflection since God is a spirit, but he has hands that were seen by men and though they were cloudlike he created and directed with them, as far as I know.

When we're discussing animals, it's better not to use "homosexuality" or "bisexuality" and just talk about sexual behavior. I prefer the terms "same sex sexual behavior" or "opposite sex sexual behavior" though primatologists use the technical jargon of isosexual and contrasexual.

Homosexuality, heteroseuxality and bisexuality are sexual identities of Western culture. Not really applicable to animals - and not always to non-Westerners who do not identify with the Western cultural constructions of identity and sexuality.
Non heterosexuals only exist in a western cultural perspective? Hmmmm. If you say so.

Must be why our birth rates are so much lower.

Why not just say the soul is the part that was created in this alleged God's image?

<quoted text>The God of the Bible is THE one who brought ALL things into existence in THE beginning. He could see the end from the beginning when it all started. We may not have the reasoning capacity to understand this.
Who brought him into existence? Who was God's creator? Did he poof himself into being too? Something had to come before...

You can not make a God out of nothing.

Uh...is the above a joke?
Pretty much everything I post is sarcastic in tone... but no.

Laws against homosexuality are not really aimed at them. Their real intent is to discourage the far larger latent bisexual community from exploring their true sexual identities.

The government has little interest in what gay people do.
