Quote from: Baruch on July 10, 2019, 07:31:33 AM1. Consistent egotism ... yes, I am a demi-god and so are you. Not better than others, simply unequal, because ... we are unequal.
Quote from: Draconic Aiur on July 10, 2019, 02:18:39 PMAccording to that logic I am a psychopath too
Quote from: Sal1981 on July 10, 2019, 04:15:32 PMWell I ain't one, according to that short list.
Quote from: Baruch on July 11, 2019, 06:25:45 AMThe craziest people are the ones who don't think they are ;-)

Quote from: Baruch on July 10, 2019, 07:31:33 AMWanted to revisit this for Unbeliever ...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq9SJIGmqyQThis is you. And you aren't harmless.1. Consistent egotism ... yes, I am a demi-god and so are you. Not better than others, simply unequal, because ... we are unequal.2. Behavioral chaos ... follows impulse and instincts ... that is how I post.3. Insincerity ... but I am very sincere in my postings (aside from jokes and satire).4. Parasitic lifestyle ... I worked as a government contractor for 32 years. But I also give to others.5. Disgust threshold ... I don't like horror movies. But I enjoy war games.6. Don't like looking people in the eyes.7. I don't enjoy being around upset people. Don't usually want to be involved in other people's problems.Moral .. no two psychopaths are alike ;-9

Quote from: Baruch on July 13, 2019, 06:35:47 PM"I am" in Johannine Gospel, claiming to be G-d, not demi-god.
Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 11:38:10 AMHave you really contemplated "demi-god"? How could there be half of omnipotence?
Quote from: Baruch on August 20, 2019, 11:46:46 AMMore literalism. Metaphor, simile etc don't exist. Nuance is ... nonexistent.Yes, it has taken me 60+ years to understand this concept. And that puts the kibosh on atheism for me.
Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 12:19:58 PMActually, I've always thought that you were "not an atheist" only because you couldn't truly imagine the universe existing without you in it.
Quote from: Baruch on August 20, 2019, 01:56:03 PMIf you can imagine the universe, without yourself, then you are psycho. That is a self contradictory (literally) position. And this isn't a half-full/half-empty choice. Basically it is a transcendent claim, not immanent.I can imagine a universe with now humans. How is that a good thing? How is that different than imagining that there are unicorns in it.
