Jesus perhaps but where does it state in the Bible that God has a physical body? Is the Jewish/Christian/Moslem god not a spiritual being?
The Moslem god is obviously biased.
Their religion promises an entourage of sex slaves for every men who lives a good Moslem life, but promises nothing for every woman who lives a good Moslem life.
Ah say Kirk, did you fathom the StarDusts mission?

Really? You have evidence of this assertion? Life had to come from non-life ultimately, and you deny both the naturalistic possibilities and the possibility of supernatural events. Which means life had to always exist.
Quit reisiting me and grow...

Your fear of the 'Christian god' doesn't mean there isn't an intellegent creator beyond human comprehension...

Most resist the idea of a creator...simply because religion has attached judgment and condemnation, as traits of this creator or creators or spirits or superior beings...

"Many" rather than "most" would read truer, and so would "because indoctrination" rather than "religion") has attached.. etc...

Mostly...because.. a person can...for example, "religiously" brush their teeth, or "religiously" drink two cups of coffee each day, neither of which "ritual" will have perpetuated any sort of religious "indoctrination" upon them.

Play-Doh - Who Invented Play-Doh
Play-Doh was originally designed as a wallpaper cleaner.

Play Doh - What is it?:
Play Doh is a modelling compound especially meant for kids. Play Doh comes in various colors including primary colors like blue, red and yellow. Play Doh comes in sealed cans, and is pliable to the touch. It's similarity to clay without the mess makes it a perfect modelling toy for the children. Play Doh is non toxic, and can be washed off with soapy water. Once Play Doh is exposed to air, it hardens.

TR the humans that are far beyond the "Bible Babble" and realize the entities and forces that created all life on this planet .....STOP! Humans are a primitive species.....to understand the truth would be asking to much from a mind stuck in the A>D.And, contact is out of the question. Proof........forget it!Just be a good little godbot and go pray.......

Your right...nor is logical deduction. But when you have cultures that have had no contact with one another that also are separated by time and space, come up with basic intuitional knowledge that correlates to a idea that science adheres to...( the Observer Effect)then you have something that should be considered...

Noncorporeal aliens inhabit the bodies of Enterprise crew members to study how the crew reacts to a lethal virus infection that has afflicted Trip and Hoshi. "The Observer Affect" (StarTrek) lol.

“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”~ George Berkeley

Fundamental to contemporary Quantum Theory is the notion that there is no phenomenon until it is observed. This effect is known as the ‘Observer Effect’.

"The Observer Affect" Flow"Psychology" on a cherry blossom web page with a guy that looks like Teli Savalis.

The "Observer Affect" in Science-
Rational Example:a standard mercury-in-glass thermometer must absorb some thermal energy to record a temperature, and therefore changes the temperature of the body which it is measuring.

A common lay misuse of the term refers to quantum mechanics, where, if the outcome of an event has not been observed, it exists in a state of 'superposition', which is akin to being in all possible states at once. In the famous thought experiment known as Schrödinger's cat the cat is supposedly neither alive nor dead until observed — until that time, the cat is both alive and dead (technically half-alive and half-dead in probability terms). However, most quantum physicists, in resolving Schrödinger's seeming paradox, now understand that the acts of 'observation' and 'measurement' must also be defined in quantum terms **BEFORE the question makes sense.

Instance A: See "studying rats under a microscope after injecting a live germ of black plague"...while watching StarTrek reruns.

Instance B: See perceived ability to "mind read" lol.

Instance C: When not convoluted or misconstrued, could aptly be a term used in formulating Scientific hypothesis, when applied correctly. See: Lucy McFaddens observation on gas and dust comas of the comet Tempel 1 -->(analysis of the gas and dust coma images reveals asymmetric distributions of water, CN, C2 and dust. The C2 is enhanced in the sunward direction suggesting either a temperature dependence or a compositional asymmetry in the composition of the nucleus.)

The "Observer Afffect" lol

No, but it eventually produced light. Again, much much later.
