44. I don't believe there is a god to make a request.
Edited on Fri Oct-02-09 05:01 PM by BurtWorm
However, I observe that there are many people who believe there is one and who claim to be certain that they know what it is. This would seem to suggest that there's a way to know what's in this alleged god's mind. If these people are not purely delusional--which is certainly a highly likely possibility--then some of them seem to truly believe they've received a clear message from the deity as to what it wants. (Are you one of those?) My question to them stands: if this deity really wants something, why doesn't it make it clear to the rest of us?

If you think the deity is being clear, tell me what it wants, or how you found out, please.
