Starting with the UK first how can god be in all those churches that are having services? As the sermons are usually aimed by the vicar or preist to the man himself are they not? Now how can he spread himself all over the place.

Its called the Holy Spirit.

Ah. Glad we got that one cleared up.

Well that is not god is it not, because you have god the son and the holy ghost.

The Holy Ghost and the Holy Spirit are the samething,.

A fiction.

"Anyone who can worship a trinity and insist that his religion is a monotheism can believe anything... just give him time to rationalize it. " RAH

Hi Nestov

I like to think of it as similar to someone with different roles in their life - wife, mother, doctor for example. But don't worry, it'll soon be St Patrick's day and a wee bit o' the shamrock will make it all clear!

Cheers

Hi Roma.... I have no problem with belief. Whatever it takes to get you through the night as it were. My dislike of theism is related to organised religion. It is intrusive and encourages group bigotry and covers misdemeanours. The RCC comes in for stick but it is simply the biggest and most obvious target however it is not alone. The bible belt in the US is a catalogue of charlatans,

"But I contend that the disgusting behavior of many of their alleged 'holy men' relieves us of any intellectual obligation to take the stuff seriously. No amount of sanctimonious rationalization can make such behavior anything but pathological. " RAH

I am a 'leek' man when it comes to vegetables...

Good morning stu
Theistic answer:
God is everywhere at all times and in all places, that's how God can spread themselves 'about a bit'
How does that sound to you?
Best wishes

Good Morning Sheldon,
You say a fiction.
I would ask you in all genuine seriousness.
Can you prove that?
Regards

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Feb 2014 10:14:16 GMT
I look forward to you proving otherwise, though you'll forgive me if my disappointments at the hands of theists making grandiose claims for evidence has jaded me a little I'm sure. Will you be presenting it here? Or shall I await a newsflash that god's existence has been proved?

Hi Ghost, the question itself is something of a misnomer, as you're asking someone to do the impossible and prove a negative. I am however happy to disbelieve any claims made without proper evidence. I understand theists are convinced there is evidence, but clearly if it were compelling there'd be only one theism, after all how can a person claim objectivity and evidence, then set a different standard for all other religions? Of course this isn't the whole story, many palpably fasle claims about some fairly important facts are made by the modern theisms that remain, these might have passed muster in the bronze age or ancient Palestine, but in the 21st century I'm afraid educated people should have learned to be more sceptical.

Isn't Jesus supposed to be in everyone's heart? Would save a lot of travelling.

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Feb 2014 11:15:12 GMT
How would he fit? This would cause your heart to stop functioning properly surely, even if he used magic to miniaturise himself.

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Feb 2014 11:15:27 GMT
So they take him to church with them? Sneaky.

Search me. Its as mysterious as returning home with a bellyful of His flesh and blood.

Drew Jones says:
I want to know - if you pull all the Eucharist wafers turned into the body of Christ together from all over the world I imagine you'd get something bigger than the average human body, so how big was Jesus? And how many wafers do you have to consume before you've had a whole Jesus?

Haswell says:
well of course its only the catholics that eat the actual guts. So that narrows it down a bit.

I believe he was bigger than we usually picture him Drew. I do have evidence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4A1o3ZCHzE

If I remember rightly one of the reasons early christians were persecuted was because of alleged cannibalism.
