A possibly new perspective on this thing that we know as God.

A possibly new perspective on this thing that we know as God.
Hi.

So the perspective that I have is that, we will never fully and completely know God.

The only way to know God is to know His names and attributes.

Even though the human being is an animal just like all other species, we are distinct because we have a divine reality.

The human being has the potential to display all of the names and attributes of God at the highest level, that's what makes us have dominion over the animal.

The names and attributes of God are basically all of the good qualities that is possible for the human being to have, it's just that society doesn't call them that.

The human being is the most perfect of all creation.

Some of us hallucinate we have a "divine reality."

We have dominion over the animals (ever been swimming with a great white shark? Ever contracted coronavirus?) because we have unique cultural and biological attributes.

Well the thing is, we don't have dominion over other species because we are physical, obviously other animals is physically superior than we are. We have dominion over the animal because we have a divine reality.

Remember divine reality and good qualities go hand in hand. People that is stoned or drunk will not show their divine qualities.

You seem to be talking in circles. Human have a divine reality, and that divine reality is evident in human qualities. Huh?

And some of the kindest, gentlest most admirable qualities I’ve witnessed in people happened when they were thoroughly baked.

How do you know for certain what is a "good" (divine) quality and what is a bad quality? Moral relativism is inescapable, by my mind, so.....

No, that divine reality that we have is evident of God.

Would the evidence be evident?
