Then what is he? What PRECISELY is your God? Define, describe, locate, and explain your God. Philosophy is often used as a smoke screen to confuse issues, detract attention, draw false analogies and otherwise make simple matters appear complicated.
Then why in the hell would you believe in something that there is no evidence for? This literally blows my mind. If I didn't know you were serious I'd probably find this amusing.
How the heck do you know the supernatural exists if there is no evidence for it? If you cannot show me events, situations or elements of the natural objective universe that could absolutely not have arisen naturally then you're not going to convince me or any rational person that they arose supernaturally. And nothing in the known universe appears to only be possible through magic or supernatural means. So why on earth would I believe the supernatural even exists if there is no evidence for it and absolutely no need for it to exist?
Completely and utterly irrational. Just the fact that you are arguing that the metaphysical exists shows me that the metaphysical MUST interact with the physical. How else would you know or detect or sense the existence of the metaphysical? Aren't you an element of the physical world? The metaphysical must somehow cause effects on the physical world or you wouldn't be so sure it exists.
Just to keep this ball rolling lets talk about something that a lot of mystics like to discuss. Let's discuss the concept of energy. Energy is physical. It exists as part of the physical universe. It is real. Energy is not some sort of magical mystical vapor floating around affecting this or that, yet never being detectible, measurable or definable. If a mystic talks about spiritual energy then that energy MUST be detectable, measurable or definable. Or else how does the mystic know it exists?
Of course it is possible that the metaphysical realm or universe exists completely independent of the physical realm or universe, but if this is the case then how in the hell do physical beings (humans) detect and know of its existence? They absolutely couldn't.
There is nothing interesting or sophisticated about the claim that a supernatural being created this or that. This is the negation of reason or a step back into the past. When you can't understand a mystery why not attribute the origin of the mystery to an even greater mystery? If you don't know how the universe came to be why not say, "God did it," and when asked what created God quickly cover your ears and repeat over and over again, "I can't hear you." Or even worse, "God is the first cause."
Common sense, education, deductive and inductive reasoning, experience and intelligence. Name 3 things that exist without leaving behind some sort of evidence for their existence. Please, this should be a simple task. Heck, name just one.
Ok, stop trying. I can see you there scratching your head not knowing what to say. You can't answer this question with anything other than "God," as if this form of circular reasoning is somehow valid.
I'm not 100% sure. I'm not 100% sure that there isn't a planet dominated by giant purple starfish. Since when is science about absolute certainty?
A lot was said in this post of mine so I'll reiterate a few points. I'd really like to hear your definition of the god that you believe exists. If you avoid this challenge it will speak volumes. Nobody could ever scare me into avoiding defining things I believe in. And if you answer with, "I'm not sure about how to define God," then tell me what you DO know about God and how you know it.
