We all have the power to shape the world around us creating our own little(sometimes huge) universes. The power to do so comes from a single source.

Prophet Picasso 08-16-2007 06:55 PM

We are created in the image of Jah the Creator. We are not all gods, but we are all created to be gods. Many seek to find their godship through empty sources, thus they become false gods to themselves and sometimes others. Most never find God, let alone their own godhood.
Also, I believe this scripture to be literal in that we are not meant to die physically. Although only a few have bypassed death, I believe it is a defeatable enemy of Jah that we can all overcome by the realization of that godpower from Him.

You are god because god can do anything anytime. He (or she) has infinite potential and you have every possible attribute a person can have. Don't get caught up in identities because you are everything on a smaller scale. Read up on Tantra.

Oh please, don't be absurd.

How self-centered does one have to be to think a several thousand-year-old text translated and re-translated millions of times is speaking directly about him?

I respect your perspective, but I wasn't speaking of the verbatim text, but the truth behind the text. Translation bends and confuses facts, particularly in writings thought to be religious. Truth is eternal and unchanging. I feel that these truths not only speak directly about me, but about you as well.

What is so absurd
about being married to
members of Wu-Tang?

Urban_Journalz 09-04-2007 04:36 PM

I think it's touching on not only the fact that God breathed into Adam of His Own Spirit, but also that mankind is capable of incredible feats of mental, physical and spiritual skill that only the ancients began to tap into and that most of us today would consider impossible or that "Star Wars/Matrix" shit you know?

A translation and a re-writing are two different things.

There are no contradictions in The Psalms or The Book of Proverbs or The Book of Enoch. Just because The Gospels and The Torah have been tampered with, don't assume that all of them are tainted until you check for yourself.

What makes you all so sure that

1.) A God exists

2.) The God you worship is the right one?

Leaving the first point alone for a minute, how can you be so sure the Abrahamic God and the scriptures of those religions are the correct ones when you could have easily been born a Buddhist, Mazdasist/Zoroastrian, Jainist, Hindu, or any other among thousands of world religions?


As for the god thing itself, why do you even WANT to believe some nasty gloating omniscient dictator controls every aspect of your life?


Answer the omnipotence paradox:

Could God create a rock that he cannot lift? Or could God kill himself?

If god could not do these things, it would be a compromise to his omnipotence. If he can accomplish these things, it still compromises his omnipotence. The concept of omnipotence defies basic logic itself. And don't come tell me that "God is above logic" as you try to defend your delusions with pseudo-logical hypotheses that you could never even prove with empirical evidence.

to each his own,

God lives in the minds of men, he is the center of right and wrong.
When man no longer receives judgment he then act off of feeling(flesh).
When man thinks he is great, when man acts he is below

yes(positive)right, no(negative)wrong, and unknown(infinite)God

negativity comes to those that act(the unjust, wicked, etc)
My words are regarding the context of this thread

Why do religious people think morality HAD to be handed down by some higher being? Morals and values were assets that evolved in human sociology as civilization evolved. Most people act morally or compassionately because they realize that other humans are sentient beings like themselves who feel pain and emotion the same way they do. I don't need to believe in God to know that I should help a blind person cross the street or to know that rape and murder are dispicable.

On the other hand, there's all these so-called "moral" majority who do stupid, useless, oftentimes bigoted, and utterly delusional things, not out of compassion, but because they think it will please their God. I can't think of a more selfish motivation. Saving your own skin from eternal damnation by doing retarded things like standing outside a planned parenthood center with giant posters of mutilated fetuses. Not only is it a complete waste of time, but it's downright bizarre. Of course, what else can you expect from a religion that uses the image of a tortured and mutliated man as its emblem?
