Huh. Via utforsker. Equally offensive to mainstream Monotheists and Pagans. Yet possessed of a very discomfiting bit of truth. Thoughts, anyone?

Also, today is the 7-year anniversary of my first day working at this organization. Why does this make me queasy?

Some people get motion-sick; I get inertia-sick.

But some kind of SuperBeing, personal and separate from us, who sees and knows all? No way, man. I see not a shred of evidence for it.

My vision of God contains a personal diety that is both indwelling and separate. Quick analogy: people are the fingers, God is the hand. They're all part of the same piece of the body, and are both separate and together.

And I also entirely fail to comprehend "faith".

I'd say that faith is hope that can be blind to reason, which one feels strongly.

After that, no number of zealots from a dozen different faiths insisting that I meet their imaginary friend or perish in flames can make me think it's true.

You don't have to meet God, IMAO. God's already there, in you; you're part of God. God's cool with where you are if you're cool with where you are. . . provided you aren't a self-deluded, solipistic, raving psychopath. Which you ain't.

Again, IMAO.

Or, to put it more bluntly, it is belief grounded in emotion rather than fact.

I'd accept that as a definition.
