You never know who might be reading this without engaging in the exchange, and finding it useful in sorting out their own thoughts

“Out in the open wisdom calls aloud,
she raises her voice in the public square;
on top of the wall: she cries out,
at the city gate she makes her speech (Proverbs 1:20-21)

What does the word god represent? For most people it represents an omnipotent entity that created the Universe but is not part of it, which takes a personal interest in our lives. That entity does not exist. It is pure fabrication by an immature, insecure ego that cannot come to terms with its own insignificance.​

Let me put it this way:​
Horton Hears a Who – Horton was an elephant who hears a voice coming from a spec of dust floating by. He eventually discovers that an entire civilization occupies this tiny spec of dust and they are calling out to see if there are any other life forms out there occupying other specs of dust. Does this sound familiar? We are the Who that Horton hears.​

Horton is an entity that occupies a world with a multitude of other entities and this world is just a spec of dust to other worlds occupied by a multitude of other entities… ad infinitum. There is no way that the Who can comprehend who or what Horton is. In our terms, the Who would think that Horton was a god. But Horton did not create anything nor is he any more divine than any other entity.​

Taken as a metaphor, the story parallels our own. We occupy a tiny spec of dust in an infinite sea of dust and we are trying to contact other specs of dust (SETI) to see if we are alone or not in the infinite sea. Our comprehension of the vastness of this sea is infinitesimal. We call this sea the Universe and nothing in it exists outside or separate from it. There may be other universes out there but that is a speculation that is of no use to this discussion.​
Excellent post, Cliffy.

I firmly believe that god does not exist nor has he ever. He is a figment of the overworked imagination of zealots who wished to impose some form of control over the masses, IMHO. History has shown that religion has been the cause of billions of deaths over the centuries when two or more opposing religious factions are unable to tolerate the existence of the other. The harm done by those who follow the dictates of an imaginary entity has been well recorded and continues into this century and few religions are exempt from blame.

Politics is the same. We are about to witness a civil war on our southern border between right wing and left wing political factions. Don't think that it will not spill over into Canada. The far left and far right in Canada are not that much different than those in the Yankeeland.
