God plays games

RE: God plays games
Quote:if you hear the literal voice of God how would you distinguish it from any one else? the only way we can be certain that it is God speaking is if what is said correlated with the bible.

This, without a doubt and beyond question, is the most STUNNINGLY perfect circular argument I've ever heard in my life.
Thanks, Drich.  I was having a rough morning, and I need that laugh.  ROFLOL

Excellent, and since I don't belong to god, he can fuck right off. That's how that works, right?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

If god knows how the atheist mind works, why is he only communicating with you?

Why isn't god doing what a god can do and inform everyone of his existence?

Oh, I know why.

Because he doesn't fucking exist.

>A god that is capable of doing absolutely anything is speaking directly with you? Seriously?

Well, that would seem to be one reason for creating us

>If god knows how the atheist mind works, why is he only communicating with you?

You don't seem interested?

>Why isn't god doing what a god can do and inform everyone of his existence?

What would you know about being a god?  

>Because he doesn't fucking exist.

Who's making unprovable claims now?

So, an ineffable, perfect Being, created humans so he would have someone to talk to? Why?

I can’t speak for other atheists, but I’d be extremely interested in talking to God.

I know a lot about being a god. I’ve read everything Terry Pratchett ever wrote. 

Everyone makes unprovable claims, there’s no shame in it.

I could ask the same of you.

It is rather interesting, after all, how human theists enjoy using their imaginations to make up all sorts of things about the god in which they have unreasonable religious faith.

I prefer talking to Vishnu, it's where I get all my best recipes from.
Ra can be a bit of a dick. Zeus is having marital issues, we're not in contact so much anymore. Odin is always the life of the party. Jehovah is just a spoiled brat who has a micropenis.

The small matter that he seems rather shy .

So a being decides to create a whole race simply so he has something to talk to . Silly 


Quote:You don't seem interested?
Says who ?

Appealing to mysteriousness isn't an argument

It's not a claim it's a conclusion correct or not .
