LA,

Apparently, you did not understand his assertion. He said that he sees "his work", not "him". He most probably refers to his witnessing of unexpected or unlikely help in times of need, both on his life's and on others'.

OTOH, if you did understand, then your post is way out of order, since it contributes nothing to the discussion and tries to mock another member. Which cannot be tolerated on the forums. I hope that is not the case.

Hey, female discrimination !

Based on the principle of superposition, I think both terms correctly apply - him and her. The same problem exists with the Trinity; Him? They? What's in a name?

It is interesting that Quantum Cosmologists claim that we can't collapse the wavefunction of the universe. Is this the analog to the problem of defining God?

Didn't mean to upset you LA, just stating the facts :smile: I futhermore don't mean any discrimination toward anyone. I is just a term I am familiar with.
P.S. Didn't think my post would cause such a stir!

Nothing does not exist, so how can you believe in it?

Perhaps you meant to say, I do not believe.

i would agrue that the changes in your life are being acted through yourself, and that an outer force has no part in it. a sort of dilusional placibo effect. if it helps you, all the better, but as for me i cannot accept such a thing. all the beauty i can ever want i find in the very universe i live in. i need no greater being to fill in the gaps.
(and i thank you humbly for your empty prayers)

God must exist because in the end we have no other choice but to believe our life here is divine. Although, God is not really the point. The point is that you believe.

Anyway, Godel has proved mathematically that any system of mathematics must always be either inconsistent or incomplete. There you have it folks.

"And here we are stuck on this mud ball called the third planet of the Sun, in the Orion arm of a minor galaxy, in the backwash of the Virgo super-cluster, thinking that we are Nature’s greatest creation… that we are God’s gift to humanity… that our science is the greatest of all science and our art is the greatest of all art, when in fact there is a whole universe out there…"
