Are you saying anything intelligible?

[color=#000080]I dispute "god" or "gods" were created to be our slave.



Is god powerful to you?

If so, consider, as above so below.

In your family, do the strong serve the weak or do your strong expect the weak to serve them?

Where I come from, the strong serve the weak and do not expect the weak to serve them.

If a god must be served, then he must be quite weak.

As good as God. Seriously?

Do you really see gods like Yahweh and Allah as good gods?

If you do, let's chat on the immorality I see in both those demiurges.

Oh and since absolutism is out of vogue, new religious notions tend to teflect that with more grassroots democratic stuff. We call it newage now.

Since our oligarch owners have bought democracy out from under us, I see the new-age has become garb-age.

?? How is that relevant when my point is that democratic egalitarian notions are more widespread now and religions and imagrs of god reflects that? I made no point about how good a democracy we currently or anything like that...

Peace
Dan


Just showing that all our control systems have been corrupted.

As to what is reflected by most mainstream gods, that is homophobia and misogyny. Not good characteristics that and the Western democracies are a long way from equality of opportunity as well.

I do give the West some small points for walking some of their talk.

If the mainstream religions walked their talk more, we would have to come down on them more.

I see only one God.
In him I trust.
Him = H being the bridge to I masculine.
To be masculine is more than just
having a penis. God doesn't need a penis.
Neither do I. lol

People have created the hell we live

Well of course. It seems we are in agreement. How anyone could think that imaginary nothings could have created our world and the state that it is in, is quite beyond me.

Like most people, you have created your own gods and demons.

Strange though that you se us as 9in hell when, if you bothered reading the stats on what we would call evil, they are all at the best levels that we have ever enjoyed.

ROFLMFAO!!!!
So scientists go into nursing homes and cleans
the dead people's stuff before dropping it off
at the second hand shops? How do they remove
the foot fungus from the shoes? Or the ? what
ever from the under garments they so
graciously donate ? The doc' across the street
donated his moldy broken stuff to my
yard sale. I have a healthy understanding
of mold. I had a doc' that had black mold
in his office. Got a lot of sinus infections.
Built quite the immunity over the years.
I don't go out of my way to breath it though.
I respect it rather than fear it since I am
not allowed to dominate it. It's against the
law for people to enter other people's places
just to clean. Hehe
