That should please a faith based thinker like you. Assuming is 100% of faith based thought.Assuming is a large part of your reasoning process.
Thanks for that, but I was already aware that Jehovah is mythical.That Jehovah is a representation of a higher authority and force behind the creation of this universe and us. It doesn't have to be as pictured.
That's the real part - the part we'd like to see diminished.You are reacting to men's perversions of that representation
Yes, and a god that thinks you're special suits yours.A chaotic and random creation belief suits your ego better.
Reality is a little intimidating, Dave, but with courage, we can learn to stand upright and face it on its own terms. Instead of wallowing in the comforting swaddling of superstition and magical thinking, we can stand upright, look out into the a sky that may contain no creators gods at all, and accept the very real possibility that we may be all there is for light years.
Accept that you may be vulnerable and not watched over.
Accept the likelihood of your own mortality and finititude.
And if your ego will permit it, accept the reality of your insignificance everywhere but earth. Accept that you might be unloved except by those who know you - a few people and perhaps a few other animals.
Because as far as we know, that's how it is.
