New Theramin Trees video! "Creating sickness - Recovering from religion"
I wonder if the "Ben" he discusses was a witness?
Really love his analysis of what people think it means to be "made in God's image"
Hadn't thought about some of these things before:
1. If the creation that is a copy of God has the potential to go rogue, then God himself musty have the potential to go rogue... (remember this was not a product of sin, it happened in the state of "perfection" and supposedly led to sin)
2. God could not share our feelings due to the difference in our natures, one good examples was that He could not possibly experience fear, because he can never be under threat like we can.
3. God demands faith from us but this is alien to His experience. Being all knowing, He never has to have faith in anything. He always has all the factual evidence for anything he knows. So having faith has nothing to do with being made in His image....
@doubtfull1799 Trees touched on the "free will" explanation given to those who question why we live in a state of despair instead of paradise. It's always funny to hear "God created us with free will." That is a self-cancelling statement in itself.
JW: Do you not agree that God created us with the gift of free will?
Thinking Humanoid: Of course we have free will! That's what the Boss gave us. We have no choice but to have free will.
Really. Just think about it.
Haha doubtful... The "Ben" he speaks of sounds like an interesting guy! I'd like to meet him one day....
Great point Wake Me!
Yes, the very notion of "Free will" being highlighted as a gift proves that it is NOT free, as it has been "bestowed" onto humans... therefore negating the very idea of it being "free"
@stuckinarut2 Nailed it.
