    Usually the word of delusional man.

    Do you ever wonder how it could be that today, given all that mankind has accomplished, the advanced state of humanilty, that we would still have th majority of people believing in ghosts, gods, and other silly supernatural mumbo jumbo?

    I was hoping that I’d live in time, an advanced time, where this kind of mullarky was an ancient thing where you’d only be aware of it for having visited museums and read about it in history books.

    If I could only freeze myself and be reanimated at that time. To live in a world free of religion is a dream come true, a beautiful dream come true.

    I can imagine nothing more pleasant than a world free of faith.

    Have you ever noticed that the word of God tilt’s towards the prophet’s advantage? Like when Mormon founder Smith wanted to have another lady on the side?

    Hate to disagree with you arch, but no, the idiots who are giving their word that whatever is the “word of God” are usually quite sane, mostly of sound body (with a little hair in the ears, perhaps), and capable of praying up a storm. It’s the only way they can make their talent for persuasion pay.

    Folks gotta eat, and humans seem to have a need to believe, so, don’t look for it to change any time soon.

    Sinjin, it is unfortunate, but the mahatma was right when he said:

    Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes. Gandhi

    I think we have to concentrate on making sure we have the right to go to hell in our own way, without let or hindrance from our fellows – We don’t trust in God, thank you very much. Can’t tell others what we wouldn’t have them tell us.

    I gotta disagree Jeff. I don’t need to believe, and neither to a fair number of people that I know. No human being has a biological need for belief at all. The problem is clearly that the developing brain of a child is extremely plastic, and can be brainwashed into not only believing utter bullsh*t, but can be brainwashed into believing that they have to brainwash others into believing utter bullsh*t.

    Not so fast archaeopteryx and the others,

    Words may originate from thoughts. And thoughts can come from various mediums, from experience, phenomenons or simply by sight. So there are ample of evidence around us that can be transformed into the word of God. Those evidence itself can be the words of God. So for one to say theres no such thing as word of God is scientifically the naive lots.

    Solomon,

    So there are ample of evidence around us that can be transformed into the word of God.

    Of course there’s a lot that can be “transformed” into such evidence by a gullible mind. The question is, is there ACTUALLY any evidence? As far as anyone can tell, the answer is No.
