Or I could meet you and run off screaming, "Get this psycho away from me!" with you shouting obsceneties after me through your bullhorn ; and later pretend that you don't exist.

God likes merry go rounds. Having faith is very important in contacting the eternal moment, mind is the doorway, knowing kicks down the doorway.

There are an infinite number of concepts of which there is no proof; so having faith in any one of them will lead to some greater understanding?

Make 'em no sense to me poor swami-brain.

You are saying Faith does not require proof so trying to prove god means you have no faith?

Mental Semantic gymnastics.

Try thinking less/feeling more!  :grin:

So if I feel like cheating on my wife, I should "just do it" rather than thinking about the possible consequences?

shouldn't that actually be proof of god negates faith in god. and you are only talking about existance I assume, because intention can never really be proven, only surmised.

Thats not what I meant, more semantic gymnastics. But hey if you have some wild oats to sew perhaps you'd better get to it!  :grin:

Then why not say exactly what you mean. I offered a valid interpretation of your words with no gymnastics involved.

For me to say exactly what I mean without there being any chance of misunderstanding is impossible. Everything said by anyone is open to interpretation and anyway I said think less, not dont think at all.

A valid premise should still hold true in extremes. The act that I described certainly encompassed the parameters of "thinking less" and "feeling more".
