If he does, I wish he would post a message on this thread and settle the question once and for all.
He already has given us a written message, just open a Bible randomly to any page and you will hear from him.

Where is the evidence that this "message" can even be trusted, much less that it's from a god?

He can speak to you and signify that the message is only what you have ask. The evidence is in the answer.

To buy something without first requiring evidence is a fool's errand, it makes you gullible. To buy something simply because you want it to be true is the beginning of delusion. Which are you?

Oh, I've got a clue. My clue is that you like to engage in long, rambling, pointless posts.
Yeah, I get that.
Not at all like short authoritarian claims, based on judgmental opinions, meaningless statistics and unspoken but deep seated prejudices?

Yep. You're pretty much the same thing as a fundamentalist Christian. Just engaging in class warfare, playing the role of a puppet and not about to listen or add anything of value to this discussion.

(duh lol)
Presumably, the inference was "play dough". I'm listening to you. You're disrupting me! My assertion that I was setting up was that biologically, there IS an evolutionary precedent for an inherent type of multi-tasking behavior.

It can and does exist in the gene pool, and the political dog-pack mentality is locked in a genocidal form of prejudice, playing a numbers game, and is completely unconcerned with rights and morality.

That is why this discussion goes on and on. That is why nobody is going to be taken seriously when they play for pathos, claiming complete irrationality from the other side. They're just as irrational and won't surrender a single toehold of authority to the real truth. This debate is not about science or religion. It's politics.

And that is pure dreck, scientifically speaking.

Don't co-opt science as being supportive of your views. You're living in a private fantasy. You don't care about empirical evidence, scientific hypothesis nor peer review, not even the class-biased definition of "peer" that pervades the scientific community.

You might as well be the village idiot, taking coins for laughs.

I've read about a person who tried to solve his problem by closing his eyes, opening the Bible, pointing his finger, and reading the verse where his finger lands.

On the first round, he got "And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself." (Matthew 27:5)

On the second round, he got "Go, and do thou likewise." (Luke 10:37)

You know that FREESERVENT will probably insist that that WAS God's word, don't you?

I am guilty of that. lol

I started with the bible, then I started doing other books. It's almost like magic. I swear it works all the time for me whether it was a fiction or history book then it became anything. Try it it's fun.

It's called 'stichomancy' or what I like to say the magic touch.

Funny, but you didn't demonstrate any "meaningless statistics" nor any "prejudices".

But it's good to know that your opinions aren't "judgmental".

I have evidence. When you learn to trust it, it will occur more often.

To buy anything without first seeing the evidence that it's supported by facts is lunacy, making you gullible. To sell something without evidence makes you dishonest. Which are you trying to be?

To see is to believe. Go ahead and be skeptical about it. It's not my problem that you can't make it work. Our brain is hardwired to the environment. You are just not aware.

Let me know when you've read what I posted and see the meaning. It's not like I haven't already explained the the method, it's just that apparently you're not what you think you are. Oh, well. I try to show respect but you don't understand it when it's offered. It seems you belong with the suicide bombers, because you think there are rules when there are none. You're.... YOU!

You would have been a fundamentalist but you gamble as if you have nothing to lose. Someday, you'll be used up. Perhaps dying of AIDS in a dark room, perhaps getting killed in some petulant act of defiance, and all without learning that simple truth. No rules, yet not to be trusted to show any kind of personal honor, because you don't understand.

You're a deviant and whether or not you find shame in that, you are and will always be looked upon as one. You step into a punch rather than block it. You respect immorality and not morality. You need medicine but don't make medicines. You're all messed up on the inside, and if it weren't for the anonymity of this forum, you'd be in a straitjacket by now.

Until you see meaning, whether or not you agree;

Authoritarian claims, judgmental behavior and so on and so on.....

Yeah! Any weenie can play "I've got a secret". Why shouldn't I just assume that you're defending attention starved children?

Let's say that I'm "sort of" in the loop. At a certain psychological level I imagine paranoia, but block it out emotionally. Why shouldn't I just assume that you're just looking in the mirror, and calling it empathy when it only an echo chamber of your own ego and experiences?

God is a nice word to give a face to your fear of your own trivial, helplessness in a very large universe.

Skepticism has prevented me from being duped by "psychics," honesty and integrity has kept me from being one of those psychics.

Since they serve me well, there is no need to buy another person's delusion.

Wow. what an evil joke. Your strokes are in humane. Perhaps you're an example of the necessary evil in this society. The pure capitalistic freedom of the invisible hand that has been proven to be dysfunctional in an economy when encouraged in almost full swing because it causes collective dementia and senility. That's when the age of pure innocence ends. Way to ruin the fountain of youth.
