Quote# 74649

[Q - If we're made in God's image, why aren't we invisible?]

who says he is invisible.. Maybe we just cannot see him.. God created our ability to see, but we see onlya limited level of light rays.. Dogs and animals can see on higher color spectrums than we humans.. Maybe we just dont see whats out there, but its there nontheless..

Meh, this isn't all that fundie. While it's poorly written the "God is beyond human detection" argument is a pretty standard one. That being said it's a bad argument and a complete non-starter as god being undetectable means there's no way anyone could possibly know and thus you've shot your own assertion down.

God of the Gamma Rays?

Also, anything that is not visible in the spectrum we can see is, by definition, invisible...

LMAO, I love this quote.

I like the stupid quotes better than the really vicious ones. This one made my day.

That makes no sense. Invisible means that "something that is unable to be seen."

Dogs and animals can see on higher color spectrums than we humans..

Dogs can't see on a higher spectrum than humans, their color vision is sort of like this:



Or the rough equivalent of red green color blindness in humans. Maybe your talking about the ability to see the infrared spectrum, but we have created ways to see it for ourselves. Then maybe your talking about ultraviolet, but we have done that to.

Maybe we just dont see whats out there, but its there nontheless..

Until there is evidence, it's akan to Russell's teapot. You can claim it's there but there is no proof to support it.

Nn, if you want an animal that has far better color vision than a human, let me direct you to the mantis shrimp...TWELVE distinct color receptors, as opposed to our three. And two or three different kinds of polarized light, too.

This is just sort of dumb and speculative.

> who says he is invisible.. Maybe we just cannot see him..

Gee, and here I thought I was having problems using too many words to express the same frigging expressions.

> God created our ability to see, but we see onlya limited level of light rays.. Dogs and animals can see on higher color spectrums than we humans..

Hence the the expression "visible spectrum", existence of which kind of implies the existence of "invisible spectrum". But I'm no physicist so my terminology may be a bit fudgy.

Also, if cats and dogs can see God and we can't, how come they can't get to the heaven and we can?

> Maybe we just dont see whats out there, but its there nontheless..

But careful people might notice that that was not being asked. Once again: we "cannot see" God, yet we can see people. Why is this so, if God created humans in His image?

Sounds like a hypothesis to me Mintee.

Since it isn't mentioned anywhere in the bible, how are you going to prove or disprove it?

Scientific method?

So why is god sitting in the corner, because that's where my dog tend to stare.

If we cannot see him, he is, by definition, INVISIBLE.

So dogs can see god, and so can animals (snicker), but we can't. Maybe the dogs are the special ones, created "in the image" and so forth, and not us, after all.

And, of course, the animals.

Dog/God

Hmmmmm

Fair enough, I suppose, since our favorite Unicorn is both pink and invisible.

eeeehhhh

Meh.

...so he's still invisible

Maybe God's spectrum is exactly that of microwave background radiation, and out telescopes ARE picking him up!

Also, I hope no fundies read that, as they might take it to heart.

"Dogs and animals can see on higher color spectrums than we humans.. Maybe we just dont see whats out there, but its there nontheless.."

Which makes me think that our house-pets can see God. You know, as much as I come to FSTDT for the quotes, I keep coming across AWESOME ideas for movies.

So your argument basically destroys it's self, doesn't it?

God created my ability to see, but chose to give me limited vision so we can't see him so we know for absolute fact he exists so that we can burn forever for simply being born in certain parts of the world or for doubting something to exist when there's no evidence...is this something a perfect, loving God does?

Kinda like giving Adam and Eve no knowledge of right or wrong and sticking a tree next to them that isn't to be eaten from. Why not just not put the tree there?

He gives you free will, but if you use that free will to question him or his existance, you burn for eternity....

God set us up to fail, he knew we would, he created us to and foresaw us failing.

if you had made humanity, would you want to be seen?


I'd change my name, appearance and move to the outer fringes of Oblivion

God is the CMB radiation.

Do geese see God ?

So he's NOT invisible, but we still can't see him? That's what is known as a contradiction in terms. I think you should re-think your theory.

7/27/2010 2:06:54 AM



Wat.

Move along people, nothing to see here.

7/27/2010 2:19:15 AM



Wait, are you trying to tell us that dogs are made in God's image?. After all, they can see him, according to your theory, that's it.

"who says he is invisible.. Maybe we just cannot see him."

I snickered. Yahoo! Answers is the gift that keeps on giving.
