No, but if Rev can't provide answers that shows his idea is empty. In the past he's dodged my questions with word games, so I had to give him the benefit of the doubt that he didn't understand what I meant or something...


Kallog, you mean: I wont agree to give you the answers which you want me to give--ones that agree with your beliefs and ideas. You keep talking about "Rev's GOD" as one who "isn't providing any insight to justice, as Rev claims it is."

I admit that unitheism is a new idea, a new concept.Is it wrong to have new ideas, new theories? And is it really all that difficult for anyone to understand my thoughts when I say GOD?

GOD for me, is not an object to be possessed, a box-like thing, or a person, or an idol with measurable dimensions--a god (God) that can be put in another and bigger box.

If I accepted that idea of GOD, I too would be an atheist, not the unitheist that I am. I do not blame people who reject the powerless God of theism for being atheists. I am not one to condemn humane atheists to eternal damnation. I have learned a lot from the questions and challenges offered by sincere and moral atheists. I am willing to work with all humane beings interested in making the world a better place. I am even willing to work with theists. I only wish they did not have such a small God.

Pay attention, scientists: As the great astronomer, Sir James Jeans (1877-1946) put it in his great book THE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE: "The universe is beginning to look more like a great thought than a machine." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hopwood_Jeans[/quote]

BTW, Austine Cline, the atheist who controls the religion sections of ABOUT.COM, takes the same position. After asking me to define what I mean when I say GOD, he has for over a year now censored my comments--even the brief ones.
