Yesterday Yw, made a post which sent us into thought, (he does that so well), and we continued the argument here on the blog site last night, but I believe that we still have more to say on this subject so I believe that instead of writing a new post I would continue the discussion today. Everyone’s views is important and ought to give it, the subject brought our peeper New Name, and mek MTH get whey inna speech and views. So let us continue. Below I found this article on the internet and also I have brought over Yw, post onto this page. Mek we go on the journey, the same journey Yw invite us on and see where it takes us.

How can I know if God exists?

Most people in the world think that some type of God exists. But there are still a lot of people that say “There is no God” – but how can you be certain?

Proving that something doesn’t exist is impossible – all a person can truthfully say is that the thing in question probably doesn’t exist based on the evidences they have seen or heard. But this does not prove that the thing doesn’t exist.

An atheist is actually believing by faith that there is no God rather than believing by proof! The only other option is to agree that there is a possibility that outside of their understanding a God could exist but that they have seen no convincing arguments for God. However to say this infers that in the future there is a possibility that they could hear or see a convincing argument for the existence of God.

There are many different evidences that point to the fact that a God exists. A few of them are on this page – they don’t prove 100% that God exists but they do make it very very likely.

If there is a small chance that God does exist then we should really try to find out more about Him and whether he exists as our whole eternal future will depend on what this God thinks towards us.

Absolute Morals

In order for absolute right and wrong to exist there needs to be an outside agent (God) saying what is right and wrong. Some morals are cultural and relative but there are lots that are considered as absolutes. We all live our lives as if there are absolute morals, even if we try to deny them, but the way we live shows what we really believe. Absolute right and wrong infer an outside standard or judge which would infer that God does exist.

Design

The Universe has the appearance of design and purpose therefore, if we were not looking at things from a biased point of view, we would naturally assume an intelligent designer. This is just the same as if we saw some scattered stones on a hill side spelling “I love you” – we would expect that some intelligent designer had arranged the stones in that pattern to communicate with us.

The Universe

There are only three options to explain the Universe existing at all…
a) It created itself – This is illogical as it would have had to exist already in order to make itself and therefore if it already existed it would not need to be created!
b) It is eternal – This goes against all scientific discoveries concerning the Universe. It is a complete leap of faith into the dark as there is no evidence at all to support this idea.
c) An uncaused, eternal, all powerful being created the universe out of nothing – The scientific evidence is that the Universe came into existence out of nothing very quickly. This 3rd option, which suggests that a God exists, is the most logical explanation of the existence of the Universe.

Personal View on God, by Blogger YW

NOTE: Please note that these are the personal views, experiences, and thoughts behind my present outlook on how I perceive God. In this I have conviction of belief. I apologize for any offense to anyone because that is not my intent. I invite you all to share your views, even if they are in direct contradiction with mine, because that is how I learn. So, you would be doing me a favour and I thank you for that.

 

A while back I had a crisis of the spirit where I questioned my ideas of “God”. I began to wonder about ideas that surround the humanizing of an all-powerful, omniscient force. Actually, the thought started after my wondering what it would be like to be a vampire (weird I know). Not the drinking blood and all that but the living forever part. Come with me as I walk you through my thought process: I thought of remaining at one age and watching everyone around me age and die…Yes, I would meet new people but I came to the conclusion that at some point, it would all become boring and monotonous. At that time what would I do? Well, I would have to find some stimulation…some new experience…What would I do when all the “good” experiences were had? Well, it seems logical (to me) that I would have to explore the “bad” ones. Remember, there is no end of life for me, so what would you do when the boredom sets in? After all of that (good and bad) what would I do? Hmmm, I believe that I would simply go numb or neutral.

This made me wonder about my ideas of God. Now, I realize a problem here because I am looking at God in relation to human emotions, however, haven’t we all been humanizing God for a long time? Is God a man or woman? If we are created in his/her image is he multi-complexioned or multi-coloured? Does he/she have all kinds of hair? For me, these questions ruled out the physical idea of God – meaning that I came to the belief that God is an essence or a spirit or a force…That led me to the belief that it is our soul that is in his/her/its image.

Next, I thought: Self – Does God punish the wicked and reward the good? Then how comes horrible things happen to babies who have just been born? How is good and bad judged? Is it on our prevailing rule of laws? Laws of which country or state? Laws of which time period? What is good and bad? That brought me to two different, and perhaps unrelated, thoughts: 1. The conviction that God is simply a force as is nature, and 2. to determine if something/someone is good or bad, you have to peel back all the layers to get to the core or the truth of the issues involved. Being that we all hold different principles in our lives and place value on them differently (as well as our human nature to apply past experiences to situations), then truth becomes subjective to us. From this view we may be tempted to say that there is no truth BUT we are neither omniscient nor everlasting.

Carrying the thought of God in comparison to nature, I asked myself if I thought nature was good or bad. In exploring this thought, I said nature is neither good nor bad but pondered over God controlling nature, or rather, nature acting in or by God’s will. Soon, I came to believe the following: 1. that it is highly arrogant of mankind to think that we can decipher or understand something that is all-knowing, such as God. 2. That sometimes bad things just happen and that is not an indication of any wrongdoing on anyone’s part. Of course, I believe that the reverse is also true. I am not saying that good and bad thing cannot happen by God’s will, it is just that we cannot determine when that is so (takes us to faith). 3. We must be pretty self-centered to think that we are so entertaining that God –  all-seeing, all-knowing, and all-powerful – is preoccupied with what each and every one of us are doing at each and every moment in our lives…Again these are simply my thoughts. Sorry for any offense.

Moving on a bit…I began to explore the thought of our soul being in God’s image. Hmmm….Here I thought of the past, the present, and future in relation to humanity. What do all of three have in relation to mankind? The only thing I could come up with was: thoughts, ideas, principles, and beliefs. That made me think about what makes us who we are. This brought me to the belief that we have our physical bodies which tie us to this material plane (remember: I do not believe that our bodies are what make us in the image of God) and our spiritual self which is what is from God’s image. Now I purposely used the word “from” because if we were made exactly in God’s image, then (by my reasoning) we would be Gods.

Now, to me, God includes all thoughts, ideas, principles, beliefs, experiences, etc. held by mankind from the beginning of time. God is spiritual consciousness. We could think of it as the spiritual equivalent of the internet. However, whereas the internet simply holds information and data, God or the Universal Consciousness holds spirit. This is where all our ancestors and descendants reside. This is where we are pre-birth. This is what we are a part of and aware of when we are born but relinquish contact or communication with as we embrace this material plane. I believe the spiritual plane and the material plane exist in the same space but one clouds vision or access to the other. It is like having a piece of tracing paper over something you want to copy.

Last bit as I close: We are living history at this moment. This means that our present is the past of the future and it is the future for yesterday. The implication here is that time is not linear but overlapping. This is a part of the Universal Consciousness….

I believe that there is a imbalance towards the negative or malevolent for a bit now. It feels like something is building in a negative way for close to a year now but with increased intensity over the last few months. In fact I have always felt that their has been an imbalance in favour of the negative…Could it be imbalanced in towards the positive (for an extended time)?

They viewed what Christ did as the ultimate sacrifice because they want an easy way even if it means believing a delusion. Joshua himself said if you want to be my disciple deny yourself bear the cross ( continue my struggle ) and follow me. He was fighting against the political powers of his time, that would not be an easy task now and I’m sure few would follow even if Joshua came down himself and told them that. People are always looking for the easy way out. The way that has the least responsibility. My great grandmother on her… Read more »

I must be honest…It wasnt until I came here that I started looking at God differently. Not in a bad way. But here I’m learning that God is neither good or bad, like nature. I don’t know if I’m ready to swallow that whole pill yet but I can swallow a half. Growing up in Christianity we were ALWAYS taught that Good is good and that the devil is the bad one. That didnt make any sense to me anyways but naturally if something is drilled in you over and over and over again… You begin to believe it and… Read more »

Fighting wars for religious reasons is just a scapegoat, it was never the true purpose to fight, economic ruled things then and now, nothing has changed. Look at Islamic state or as the president calls it ISIL. They are fighting for a united Islamic regime or Islamic caliphate but selling oil for 25 dollars a barrel and an income of an estimated one million dollar a week has nothing to do with that caliphate. They also make millions off ransoms which is a huge part of their revenue. Look at the U.S in god we trust and the rest of… Read more »

Christianity in my opinion and experience is a scam, like Ty said. They use lies, symbols, money, human emotion anything to push their agenda forward. The very fact that they call for you not to question it is crazy, especially when just about every book in the bible talks about wisdom and knowledge (if I remember correctly, its been several years since I read it. Come to think of it maybe its only the old testament. Anyway you get my point LOL)

I actually like the summation of the Hindus. I have been thinking of how to describe God and it is very very difficult. God to me seems to “come through” intermediaries including nature, other people, thoughts, Deities etc. God is everywhere and at the same time God “allows” for entities to be what they are. For instance, if you disrespect nature there are consequences and Maat will handle that cause that is what Divine Order is about. If you do something wrong while on earth (I believe) you will “pay” or your children (even children’s children) will pay. There is… Read more »

So, Nyaha, would you say that there are rules to the universe? And would you be willing to explore the thought that God is in essence those said rules?

Yes, I think I have a view along that line. I think we owe it to ourselves and humanity (if not to that Universal Consciousness) to be the best that we are able to be..

Yw, see Ty set the pace pon universal consciousness…many cannot go there because the Anglo religion say it’s DEMONIC. Yet, the Asians (see Obara reference Budda) live in spiritual peace with them self. Only rift for them is the muslims, and the Africans rift is muslims and christians and dem self in the western hemisphere.

I can see the idea behind that (I think). God is too vast for us to comprehend. Therefore, Orishas or any equivalent would be an aspect of That vastness broken down to a point that we may be able to make sense of… That mek any sense, Teach?

“God from a religious point of view is too human” This is what first started my transition. It is just propensity, the human factor plays a big part in religion. We have a need to make things conform to us, in a way we can understand and feel connected to it. This is one of our biggest hurdle as a species, we cannot think outside the concept of what we can observe or put togethet with our understanding, thus we create what we want. Sometimes it’s necessary but other times destructive. That’s why those scamming hypocrites can perform their mockery… Read more »

No Toy, I cannot say that you are slow because from birth we are being taught. Modda, Fadda, Teacha, Preacha….We get so use to having information given to us that we do not seek it and if we do we rarely look within. If you do not look within, how will you see the spirit inside you?

Now that I understand that religion doesn’t hold the only truth when it comes to God, and as Ty had mentioned we all have to look intrinsically.Someone mentioned that spiritual journey starts with motherly love and fatherly correction. what I find now is that on each persons journey we can hope to find that motherly love which is that harmony with nature and awareness of our surroundings(which we have been leaening here), fatherly correction and that is our higher consciousness tapping into the cosmic consciousness which is that everlasting God energy and in time as we continue and mature, and… Read more »

I cannot truly say I know what God is or even if I had a close experience with him, I think that’s a matter of perception. If a person believed hard enough, they could convince themselves that a piece of paper has intellect and eventually they could relate with that piece of paper. Nunu and I know a quote that we’ve been reciting for years ” a person will believe something because they want it to be true or they are afraid it’s the truth” I think this applies to how human being on a whole construct thier theory (… Read more »

Cami, mi naw lie, I love the story of Jesus. Hold on, hold on, hold on…Here my approach to it now: 1. Immaculate conception; not true 2. Son of God; unimportant (untrue to me). My view on this story is that it is important because it tells of a person that attained a higher level of enlightenment (in my opinion) through choice. I believe that the story is much more impressive by saying that we can all be better persons if we so choose..
