    I don't see the relevance to his question.

    So dingbat, is earth the only planet with life on it in the universe?

    You have proof that the prophets separated by centuries all reported experiencing more or less the same thing over thousands of years.

    If many people were claiming based on a personal experience that if you drop acid you will hallucinate and want more proof than just their testimony, you have to drop acid.

    In the same way if you want proof that what the prophets claimed is true, that there is a God and an otherworldly realm of higher intelligences, living creatures, you have to do that which they said will result in that same experience.

    Follow the instructions given. Purify your mind, be refined, and you will see God.

    They all followed a recipe that worked. You have shown absolutely nothing over all this time that a book can make you find god.

    I am not the one wondering about kangaroos, complaining about diseases, wallowing in vulgarity, confused about life, and seeing no evidence for God. You are.

    Its really very simple.

    If YOU want to improve the quality of YOUR OWN LIFE, YOU must improve the condition of YOUR OWN MIND.

    I can't do it for you.

    Off you go now. You have a lot of work to do..

    Like I said, if I saw even one shred of evidence that you can get to god through your book, I'd try it. So please, gimme a shred!!!!!

    Everything you see, hear, touch, feel, taste, smell, think, imagine, everything you love or hate, everything you hope for or regret, everything you have ever experienced and ever will is all perceived in the mind.

    You already know how screwed up you are and how fucked up and clueless you feel.

    Why wouldn't you strive to improve the condition of your own mind every minute of every day even if the bible was never written?

    Like I said....

    Purify your own mind, BE REFINED, and God will come and make himself known to you.

    A seed remains dormant under the earth unless it is watered and begins to grow, yet until it rises above the dirt of the earth and reaches out to the light of the sun it is not tended to by the Gardener.

    No we don't, aside from the fact that we know people hallucinate and lie and have false memories and become mentally ill and are easily fooled. There's your common strain: the flaws of the human brain.
