I know, it's a sadly typical sort of spiritual question, but I'm feeling uninspired today.
I'm not really interested in the generic answers. "Omnipotent, omniscient being who was the Creater of all." is fine and dandy and all, but what the hell does that mean? Lately the big debate seems to be, once again, switching back and forth between the loving God and the vengeful God, and everyone, since the beginning of time, has been busy putting words into this God guy's mouth.
It's kind of silly, especially how much of it is pasting human motives and intentions on something that purportedly existed before we came around and presumably will exist after we've done our little dance. How can you do that to something that embodies everything that Is, and probably everything that Isn't? More to the point, how can we, who in general find it hard to concern ourselves with anything outside of our immediate experience, imagine to even guess at something that would truly know the concept of infinity?
Ahem. But the point of this post was to find out some more in-depth thoughts about all of that. Now, I realize that people's thoughts on the matter often can't be articulated well, and those thoughts can often change unexpectedly, depending on unpredictable bolts of enlightenment (or lightnening). Nobody really has a solid idea, but if you've given it some thought, I'm curious what else might be out there.
Mine's kinda convoluted and I got off work about 5 minutes ago (I've been working hard ), so I'll post it in a little bit. But I wanna see if there's any bites.
