AC seems unable to express himself in concrete terms. His assertions have no substance to which one can respond. I'm done with trying.

ac:By the way they behave, by their actions, their words.
By how they live, by the good fortune that surrounds and seem to follow their followers, their wisdom and their love for their neighbors, their community and so on and on.

I hope it makes sense Joe. :)

Joe: Not a bit. The only way for you to know what actions and words indicated that they came from Being X is for you first to have knowledge of the nature of Being X. As you, by your own assertion, have no knowledge of such a nature, ther is no way for you to distinguish between Messengers who are from Being X and Messengers who merely act consistently with the ethics that they purvey.

As for "good fortune"...I cannot think of a group, however defined, who have a monopoly on good fortune on either a personal level, or demographically wholesale.

Love it!

Here's another one from Mencken: "Faith may be defined briefly as an illogical belief in the occurrence of the improbable."

For more of Mencken's wit and wisdom, see http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/h/h_l_mencken_2.html#24Z1M6GOzGVSX11G.99

Are you quoting someone?

"Tinker"? Someone who mends pots? I think you meant "stinker."

Re mark, 6-30 8:35 AM: "an acceptable universal definition," Acceptable to whom? I choose to define a god as any entity which need not follow the laws of nature, but I can certainly imagine that others may offer different opinions.

I base my epistemology on two premises:
1. The world works according to laws to which the laws of logic apply.
2. Universal statements about the real world are in principle refutable, but generally not provable. (Which applies, of course, to #1.)
Starting from these premises, a number of conclusions can be drawn. For details, see my posts on the first page of the "Belief in the Christian god is absurd" forum, findable by "Search Customer Discussions" for "saunderst".

Am I quoting someone? No.

Tinker, stinker - both fit. The man is not into fixing anything. If it's broke - flood it! That's more his style.

Isn't that interesting? If "honkie" is the retaliatory word for those who would call black people a word that the Amazon gods will not let me post (even if I disguise it), why is "honkie" OK to use and not "nig_er" [let's see if that gets through.] Is racism not racism?

Re Irish, 6-30 11:06 AM: "That about sums up pretty much anything CAM posts." Agreed. I cannot help wondering why it is that many putatively intelligent people are so determined to adhere to intellectual pabulum rather than actually exercise their brains to find out how the world really works. (I find these workings to be utterly fascinating -- and, of course, quite rewarding in improved quality of life.)

"Fanaticism is the harbour of delusions." I ran across this in "The Crippled God" by Steven Erikson.

I'm not sure what you are saying with the repetition there, AC.

"Signed"? Eh? Is that a failed attempt at humor, TC?

Du. Is that the same as "Duh"?

Uh huh. It's more like those who are prone to hallucinations will see what they expect to see...
