The Believers Test - What is God?

What Happens When You Die? A new version of the atheist test for the religious
Some of you may know of the Atheist test on WhatHappensWhenYouDie.net
In my view the conclusion the article reaches, that 'God Exists', is unsafe.
I'll attempt, using as much of the original test as possible, to explain why I think so.
(because I know there's still some left who still believe all that nonsense. LOL)
Grey is the gloriously condescending original
Purple by yours truly
Believer's Test
Draw a circle. OK. Easy so far. Now let's say the beautiful circle you have drawn represents ALL the knowledge in the universe in other words, ABSOLUTE knowledge.
Someone who has ALL knowledge, ABSOLUTE knowledge, would be omniscient, they would know everything about everything: how many hairs on every head and every atom that exists.
Now, imagine you know a whole 1% of all the knowledge in the universe which is being generous and according to Thomas Edison, would make you pretty smart. Maybe the smartest person in the world. Ask yourself, is it possible that in the 99% of knowledge you haven't come across, there is ample evidence to prove that God is an infinitesimally small slug-like creature with a penchant for wearing leatherette tutus, purple lipstick and calling himself Ellena Rigsby at the cocktails and farting party nights she frequents at her local S & M Clubs.
If you are reasonable you will say, "Well OK then, it is possible that in the 99% of knowledge I haven't come across in the universe (which contains about 400 billion galaxies, each with about 130 millions stars like our sun) there is ample evidence to prove that God is a monkey-lookin' alien who got stuck in a 'George W' look-a-like suit and mistakenly elected to president of a country on an insignificant planet in the back woods of the universe. He likes lettuce, nun hurling (he was state champion back on his home planet) and being mysterious. His least known secret, he dies his eyelashes!
Can you see that with the limited knowledge you have at present, you must come to the conclusion that while you say 'God is all nice' and 'looks like the perfect grandad', you don't.....really.....know. You can't. You don't have ABSOLUTE knowledge.
In conclusion, that would NOT make you an agnostic but a believer with no idea what you believe in!

Proof of EVOLUTION? - God bites the Dust?

Since Charles Darwin delivered his truths in what has been described as the 'most important book ever written', The Origin of Species, about 150 years ago, God had his back to the wall, marked for extinction.
I say this because if Darwin's work were proved true it would be in complete opposition to the worldview presented by the many tenets and there would be need or

For those of you whom still believe in god, your dream is shrinking as the evidence for evolution continues to amass daily.

Bacteria make major evolutionary shift in the lab
22:00 09 June 2008 NewScientist.com news service
Bob Holmes

"A major evolutionary innovation has unfurled right in front of researchers' eyes. It's the first time evolution has been caught in the act of making such a rare and complex new trait.

And because the species in question is a bacterium, scientists have been able to replay history to show how this evolutionary novelty grew from the accumulation of unpredictable, chance events.

Twenty years ago, evolutionary biologist Richard Lenski of Michigan State University in East Lansing, US, took a single Escherichia coli bacterium and used its descendants to found 12 laboratory populations.

The 12 have been growing ever since, gradually accumulating mutations and evolving for more than 44,000 generations, while Lenski watches what happens.

But sometime around the 31,500th generation, something dramatic happened in just one of the populations – the bacteria suddenly acquired the ability to metabolise citrate, a second nutrient in their culture medium that E. coli normally cannot use

Indeed, the inability to use citrate is one of the traits by which bacteriologists distinguish E. coli from other species. The citrate-using mutants increased in population size and diversity."

So a punctuation
(random mutation allows metabolisation of citrate)
in the equilibrium
(previously 'stable' colony of bacteria)
a new species!
As I have repeatedly stated in my blogs, I have no real scientific qualifications, high school maths and physics, and a keen interest in documentaries but the evidence for evolution reported in New Scientist seems to be conclusive.
It's sounding a lot like
God Bites The Big One
to me!!!

Animals - Ours to do with what we like?

As you know my focus is the language and landscape of the myth of eternity.
This for me is a clear example of confusion in the tenets.
I can't figure out how the followers of the bible should feel about this.

RSPCA boycotts Crufts in dispute over breeding of 'disabled' dogs

Matthew Weaver. The Guardian, September 16 2008
'The RSPCA is to boycott Crufts because of concerns within the organisation that the show's judging criteria encourages the breeding of "deformed and disabled" dogs. The animal welfare charity, whose patron is the Queen, said the competition promoted breeding methods that were "morally unjustifiable", and announced yesterday that it would no longer hire a stand at the world's biggest dog show, as it has done for the past four years.

Is it okay to bend animals to our idea of beauty?

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
This section of genesis I feel clearly states: Yeah do what you like; mutate the dumb animals all you want. From this interpretation the bible squad should outright disagree with the RSPCA, citing 'every humans 'god-given right' 'to tinker with the evolutionary process to your hearts content', but this section;

Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
is unclear. In the widest interpretation, it depends on you view of the wording 'dress and keep it', in the narrowest interpretation, does this only apply to 'Eden'; does it still apply after that embarassing 'casting out' business!

Does that mean that the religious
should boycott Crufts along with RSPCA?

Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
but this bit suggests a reiteration of the dominion point!
What on earth is one of the
sore knees persuasion
supposed to do here! LOL.

The queen is the figurehead of the Anglican England and, as the article mentions, patron of the RSPCA. Should any breeder whom believes take their lead from the figurehead and also boycott?
Seems like a simple choice doesn't it - breeding of 'disabled' dogs - is a bad thing! But the bible in it's infinite wisdom (LOL) muddyies the choice with unclear instruction.
My tuppence?
When dog shows are about money, kudos and shouting rights for breeders, the dog's become a means to an end. Should 'traditionally' qualified (they're generally not Vets) human livestock breeders be allowed to play the evolution game? I don't know enough too say, so I suppose my tuppence boils down to (as a consultation statement only);
Any breeder found to be promoting a breeding strain that weakens the overal species, should be prohibited from earning a living from animal husbandry.
