You cannot blame a man being hungry, least for explaining the source and course of his hunger. There is no God. God exists as an experiential phenomenon inside out thoughts. So if you haven’t or can’t experience that, then there can’t be God. The bible happens to discard common sense and logic. How would God have created man with common sense to worship Him with all he got except Logic? Except common sense? Luckily, I found my source of absolute truth, and I believed it. If a man finds another and believes it, then let him. To me, Urantia Book matches my image of logic, common sense, God, power, mortality, love, terrestrial distribution, and hope. So believed it.
My great grandfather was a medicine man. He treated people who were cursed with spells, treated people with biological diseases, but most importantly, he made sacrifices at the mountain for rain and returned home wet. Christianity offers nothing except weakness, shame and guilt!!! In the scripture, it’s called meekness, the dictionary interprets that as controlled strength, but our pastors and bishops interpret that as weakness. They use it to prey on us. A man lives in a wheel chair almost his entire life having not to enjoy the wonders of the world, then you say he is wrong for believing in physics, you are wrong! Physics has given him a chair, speech, and medicine. God, has given him nothing to hold on to! God does what is best for everyone, so maybe this man might have become a murderer, as if there are no walking murderers. I think we are just as fortunate as a tree happens to grow in the middle of a tropical rain forest, never to be reached by fire, or power saw. That tree is no different from the one growing at the edge of the same forest, or a far forest. And if trees have no life, then maybe we are just like the trees, carrying life to the next generation, and when we die, the terrestrial have something to feed on to maintain their mortality.
As for me, I believe God is a Soul, living inside each and every human brain as intuition[more], emotion. That soul is the life, the same component that maketh matter, gives mass, decides density, and provides gravity for revolution of protons around nucleus of an atom. This symbol of a central object being revolved around by other independent objects is my singularity. It is evident everywhere, from galaxies, to atoms. Thus, God must either exist as a self-aware and personified layers of energy. I say layers because, without a start, there can never be an end. So, this energy must have begun the process of change, like making a decision, moving, reacting, harnessing, building, growing, reaching, or combining, or collision. Otherwise, the universe could and would have started at the first existent of eternity! But it didn’t. what prompted the start of a universe when it did was something in progress before and outside the aftermath whose result became the universe.
You can argue over opinions about God, but experience with Him and in Him exists above and beyond all human controversy and mere intellectual Knowledge – Urantia Book page 30 (1:6.6)
Who am I?
I am in you, you can’t see me;
I am with you, you can’t lie to me;
I am above you, I know your strength;
I am below you, you discredit me;
I am before you, I know your plans;
I am behind you, I know your weakness;
I am beyond you, you can’t define me;
I am without you, and within you;
Who am I?
Of late I’ve been thinking about witches. Where they draw their powers, how they come to possess the powers and how they are able to use them. Because, if you really live in earth physically, you will have noticed that witches really do exist, even in the bible!! Saul went to a witch who could summon the spirit of a prophet of God (1 Samuel 28:11), and in the New Testament, Paul, who was Saul (funny coincidence…) rebuked an evil spirit from a girl who seemed too wise for her age and context (Acts 16:18).
This came at a period I didn’t have solid supporting evidence of how God can be an infinite mind, or how God really is connected to everything. I have always have had confidence in the believe that God is the soul. And humans that live on earth possess that part of God! And that is why am more inclined to make a rather solid conclusion that human are gods. God created gods. God wanted to be worshiped by beings that where very self-aware of their actions. And that is why he probably planted the tree of knowledge of good and evil where he created the first man. So, how is God connected to all this?? God is the resting place!! God is the infinite mind where everything existed, where everything rests, where everything lives, where everything still exists! And that is why, these terrestrial spirits need a soul, like the one God gave to humans, hence a person is needed for the powers of the spirits to work. That explains why God was able to create the universe with just a word of mouth, because He harbors the Holy Spirit, Who is actually seven very powerful spirits (Revelation 1:4; 3:1; 4:5; and 5:6).
See this, after you are preached to the gospel, you are told that you can receive the Holy Spirit. Does everyone receive it? No, we all agree on that! But it doesn’t mean that those who don’t receive it are less humans, or less capable of harboring a spirit! It only means that they are not completely self-conscious enough. If they received more knowledge, they start to understand and after continuous meditation, they start to become self-aware of their place, role and their part in creation, which leads to not necessarily receiving the Holy Spirit, but very high inner self importance.
In an occurrence that they receive the Holy Spirit, they start to prophesy, command nature, speak of things to come, and perform miracles. Why? Because they have possessed enough room in their mind to harbor the Holy Spirit, which now works through them! Partially, that proofs the existence of another form of life that can inhibit the other (non-breathers according to the book of Urantia), but that’s a talk of another day. (On page 564 The Urantia Book, it says: “Life on the worlds of the non-breathers is radically different from what it is on Urantia. The non- breathers do not eat food or drink water as do the Urantia races. The reactions of the nervous system, the heat-regulating mechanism, and the metabolism of these specialized peoples are radically different from such functions of Urantia mortals. Almost every act of living, aside from reproduction, differs, and even the methods of procreation are somewhat different.”)
So, I stand to be corrected but confident in the believe in the quote by a famous mathematician Kurt Godel of the 1970’s. Godel felt that through the principles of modal logic that a higher being must exist. He argued that, “God is that for which no greater can be conceived. And while God exists in the understanding of the concept, we could conceive of him as greater if he existed in reality. Therefore, he must exist.” What am I trying to say? Without God, there would be no such thing as space and time upon which everything depends on. Because God, through His infinite mind, which we successfully defined as a resting place for everything, hence an infinite basic foundation upon which everything exists, can never be consumed by the infinite ever growing time-space, without whom, space would not have a room to expand to! Science calls it God’s particle (Higgs boson or Higgs particle). It is the particle believed to give mass to things, hence matter. The particle’s existence helps confirm the theory that objects gain their size and shape when particles interact in an energy field with the Higgs boson particle. The more they attract, so the theory goes, the bigger their mass will be. Can you smell magnetism in that last line? Does magnetism hint something about gravity? Well, by now gravity should tell you something about unseen forces…terrestrial forces to be precise! You can also imagine earth as a single particle in space-time, attracted to a solar system, in a certain galaxy! By the way, no one have ever been able to confidently define magnetism, we can only predict the behavior of magnetism, and that’s the farthest we go as of understanding magnetism!

In conclusion, God is the infinite mind hence the infinite foundation of everything…
God made the universe, made animal, made plants, and created the humans. He then made humans in charge of everything. He made human a god on earth. That is biblically true since during creation of Humans, God said, “Let Us create an image with our own likeness”. The likeness of God is being God, so we are gods…
Our intelligence helps us keep all other creatures under control. We don’t have to be as strong as elephants, or brave as lions, or fast as cheetahs… We are automatically in control of nature.
But there is something we can’t control even if we were given the means to. Its Evolution. Trying or even thinking to control Evolution is like being a cannibal, and starting to feed on your own body. There is a line separating what we know, what we can know, and what no one will ever know, like the details of life, soul, and spirit…
Any being with a slightly higher knowledge than humans on earth has us in control. The being can do whatever it wishes with us, all because we would never comprehend. Knowledge directly determines the level of control we have. That is why there are ranks at work to grade employees according to experience, and skills.
