    One day you walked into your home and found a person standing there; a person which you instinctively trusted... and that person revealed to you that they were God incarnate; God in human form; that they had heard your queries and had decided for reasons known only to them, to stand before you and convince you...

    At last any and all evidence which you requested as 'conclusive, empirical proof was laid out before you...

    You could touch it, see it in your mind’s eye; see it in unprecedented detail in as many ways as you could think of; you are presented the answers to questions regarding everything from 'what is time, why are we here, is there a hell and am I on the register; everything from who killed JFK to where Elvis is and that most important of all human puzzlers...'where do socks go when you put them in the washer and they don't come out;' you're given all of the time and answers to all of your questions until you simply can no longer advance a query of doubt... all of the evidence which you require is presented; matter is created from the ether, you’re transported through time, in thousands of dimensions, seeing history play out in thousands of ways...; whatever flitters through your mind is answered instantly…; all of the demonstrations, the insight, the mind blowing facts, the full blown demonstrations of the origin of the universe, presented in a vision, which you learn was actually you witnessing as it happened, having literally been taken back to that point to witness it yourself… as well as in mathematical terms which you were suddenly, instinctively able to grasp... proof, in finality and conclusively that God was precisely as he had been described all of your life; but which you had rejected for whatever reason... with the only condition (to which you agreed) being that you could not call a witness...


    What would you do?

    I would suspect it was Satan. God does NOT visit us "in the flesh" There are only what 2 instances in the old Testament where he may have revealed himself to a human and even then it does not actually say he did.

    Satan would know all those things. I already believe in God.

    Well I would diagnose myself as mad because that can never, and will never happen within this physical manifestated universe governed by laws that we did not decide but found out. Based on those laws this will never happen and anyone that says they have seen or felt anything paranormal for that matter, has had thier own brain decieve them because we as humans love to look for patterns, even when they are not there. Im not saying that anyone who has felt or seen a ghost, or has felt god or whatever...is mad. No not at all, they have just been tricked by the power of the cognitive machine known as the human brain and its superior ability to find patterns even when they dont exist.

    O.k. Publidude. I'll play...

    Bla, Bla, Bla... the proof in the privacy of my own mind is there, and I'm talking to the god described in the King James Bible.

    Only one question...

    God-dude... Why did you allow so much suffering, slavery and genocide for personal profit at the hands of Western Civilization... the very people you chose to reveal to yourself to and commissioned to bring the rest of the inhabitants of this planet into a knowledge of your 'love'?

    Answer me that one Publidude, and you will convert me.

    -Joe

    "If there is a God of this world and he loves us; I should not like to be him, as the suffering that is its history would surely break my heart."
    -Penniless European Philosopher, circa 1800's

    You do not want the answer cause it does not fit with your self loathing and hatred and bigotry.
