    REALIGION is based on my UNIFYING THEORY OF "GOD"

    Here are the facts

    Fact #1-Humans are not responsible for the existence of the universe!

    Fact #2-Some great debatable force is responsible for the existence of the universe!

    Fact #3-Whatever this great debatable force may be it is responsible for the existence of the universe i.e. the exact definition of "GOD" according to the world's 3 major religions.

    And so The Unifying Theory of "GOD" says the debatable force responsible for the existence of the universe should be called "GOD"!

    Realigion?

    well, who's reality would that be Ben?

    Religion , imho, is the earthly interpetation of celestial Faith , in other words religion is based on something one can't hold in one's hand, can't collect, can't create, can't market, can't give away, etc

    Religon merely trys to impose earthy definitonal values of the celestial purity of Faith, and usually so badly the two become mutually exclusive

    So, to stake the claim 'REAL' in earthy parameters is to suggest our existence the reality, and faith the illusion

    and that's exactly where some might argue the inverse applicable....

    well the purpose of religion is allegedly to unite people but so far non-reality based religions only unite people who are members of said religion....so I thought I would conceptualized a reality based LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR definition of "GOD" that is applicable to every human on the planet in an attempt to create a REALIGION to essentially break the cycle of never ending war after war bc of non-reality based religions... so the pupose of REALIGION is to hopefully achieve global peace....

    what is the justification?

    Well the worlds 3 major religions all define their "GOD" as the creator of everything so it is very natural to say that whatever created everything should be called "GOD" ....therefore "GOD" is real....
    this does NOT mean "GOD" is a conscious spiritual deity..."GOD" could very well be evolution or a spiritual deity....I don't claim to know the nature of "GOD" but the point is to have a definition of "GOD" that bypasses that debate entirely bc that is why people fight over various religons...

    some people might get it...

    Oh, i see ....

    well, gotta admit, i think most mainstream religons cause more trouble than they're worth Ben.

    In fact, as a recovering Christian, i truly believe a sure sign of the 2nd comming would be a giant smoking hole where the vastican used to be....

    so yeah, some sort of KISS method would be helpful

    Notice the second premise? #2-Something did!

    ARe you sure about that?

    Why?

    You have absolutely no REAL evisence to support that theory, ya know.

    If anything you're making the same presumptive mistake that every religionist does.

    You are assuming CAUSE AND EFFECT, and then positing that something must have MADE the universe.

    Okay, let's assume that's true.

    Then what MADE the creator of that universe?

    you seem to be making the same mistake most atheists/agnostics make when reading my theory...u think of "GOD" based on the historical non-reality based definition of the word "GOD" i.e. the big great 'spirit' in the sky when the entire point is to have a REALITY based definition.....so perhaps it was the BIG BANG and/or evolution that led to everything...if so they should be called "GOD"....get it?

    No, I don't.

    I merely point out the flaw in your presupposition.

    You suppose that something must have created the universe.

    It doesn't matter if you do or do not call it GOD, you are still supposing that SOMETHING must have created the universe.

    There is no evidence to support that presupposition, Ben.

    A "reality based religion" already exists. It's called "Liberalism" and it's practiced by millions of worshipers in the Democrat Party.

    I don't think reality has any place in religion.

    ooh excuse me I forgot how much some people hate the word 'create'....so I'll rephrase the idea so you understand it better (without getting into the bs 'do we really even exist' philosophy)....so here goes

    I exist! The universe exists! I do NOT claim to know (or have the ability to comprehend) the exact nature of whether the universe always existed, was created, if it 'evolved', or whatever the exact mechanism was that led to the existence of the universe....but WHATEVER? the debatable force is or was...It is responsible for the existence of everything i.e. the exact definition of the word "GOD" in all 3 of the world's major religions! As such The Unifying Theory of "GOD"
    says the debatable force should be named "GOD"!

    To say you disagree with this simple definition of "GOD" is morally equal to saying you don't believe in reality or your own existence!
