Exactly How could I or anybody be sure that the creature claiming it is a god is actually a god. I know because of that. That the only way an alien or even a god could convince me it was what it says it is, would be to totally change my personality.jimkenney12 said:I went back to your first post and you claim in it to know your own mind. You claimed that you could not be convinced there is a god because you would 1) wonder if a alien being was just playing with your mind. You go on in that post or a subsequent one to wonder if you would still be you if you became convinced there was a god. I took this as referring to your claim about knowing your mind.
Can it be deemed anything else if it hasn't been shown to exist.jimkenney12 said:I regret that so many people for or against the existence of God treat it as an intellectual exercise
I can get experiential event from drugs, drink, and hallucination, a blow to the head, etc. Should we treat those things with the same reverence, when they are no different.jimkenney12 said:like the third theorem of geometry rather than an experiential event.
