\"Is this the asylum?\"

hallucinations and wishful thinking.

Been there, done that. At one time I toothought that God had spoken to me, but over time I had to admit that there is such a thing as the mind talking back to itself, saying the things that you want to hear. As for the rest, people misinterpret things all the time.

That you must be a very very SPECIAL person.
3/23/2007 2:58:51 PM
You sir, are a fucking liar.

I guess the first question would be about set and setting: most \"supernatural phenomenon\" occur when one is in bed, sleeping or nearly asleep, or while under duress, or on drugs.
I would also ask about the particulars. A voice in your head or a lucky break is unimpressive. An encyclopedia set levitating in front of two dozen witnesses would require explanation.
Finally, if God is willing to show himself in this way, I would ask Him why he doesn't show himself to everyone. If all I have ever seen are natural phenomenon, whose fault is it I wind up an atheist?

What would YOU say to the thousands of people who have reported supernatural events that appear to prove that some other god is responsible?
3/21/2008 12:04:44 PM
I would say:
"Pics, or it didn't happen!"
3/21/2008 12:36:57 PM
Thats just it, people imagine all sorts of things. Gods not even first up
3/21/2008 12:52:23 PM
So what? The Indian Brahmin talk to their gods everyday, go debate with them which God/Gods is real
3/21/2008 1:49:47 PM
Why is it that "God" always only reveals himself to crazy people?
3/21/2008 2:06:30 PM
Don't take the brown acid.
3/21/2008 2:25:35 PM
that more folks have seen elvis, or been anally probed by ET then saw your god,so that makes it real right

How's that schizophrenia going?

I don't know about him, but I'd tell you to stop toking so much.
7/18/2008 1:34:14 AM
That doesn't make you special or anything...anyone with a normally functioning set of amygdalae will get a mystical experience from time to time. Why, is anyone's guess.
7/18/2008 2:51:11 AM
not completely useless
Overinterpretation, I'd say.
7/18/2008 3:48:39 AM
belief <<>> proof.
Need pictures (and not off photoshop).
7/18/2008 6:04:23 AM
I'd say you're delusional.
5/8/2012 11:01:08 PM
I'd tell you to stop blithering and to go and get my fries.
5/8/2012 11:09:44 PM
I'd say: What were you/they drinking at the time?
If you can indeed prove the existence of God, you'd be famous, not to mention immensely rich. As I have heard nothing about this before, I guess you can't.

Give us some verifiable proof. I think that most people would like to have real evidence for the existence of ghosts. Just think; if ghosts could be proven to exist, then we'd know that there really is life after death. I'd like to believe. But wanting something and having evidence are two different things.

Can't argue with that, it's true that thousands of people have reported supernatural events or divine experiences, and for the most part are sincere.
But many of these reports contradict others, people don't see the same afterlife in NDEs, nor all hear the voice of the same god, etc. So however sincere they may be in relating their experiences, at least some of them have been deceived, probably by their own minds. But if some of these experiences are just delusions, then we have good reason to reject all of them as such unless additional evidence for their accuracy can be provided.
Jagdflieger's experience isn't evidence of God, since we require just as much evidence to separate revelation from delusion to begin with, leaving us no better off.
It's no different to claiming to know there's life on the planet Kepler-22b because "a little bird told me."

Get into therapy.
That's what I'd say.

I believe the appropriate response to this is "pics or it didn't happen".
