God Incognito

The Big Guy is not Falsifiable


1) Invisible
2) Made of nothing and everything
3) Can (and does) make things appear as though he doesn't exist
4) Cannot be understood/ Anything is possible.

Oddly, imaginary friends have the same attributes.

I would dispute #2, sounds like a straw-man to me.

I don't think so.

I've heard christians say god is immaterial, but also interacts with the material world. How? I don't know.

So he's in everything, including every hair on my head right now. But he can't be measured with any tools we posses.

For instance, if we weight a person when they are "saved" and they are 167 lbs. Then we have them "sin," they wouldn't be 166 lbs.

I don't know what "Christians" you've been talking to, Steve, but what you're describing is panentheism, not Christianity. And yes, it is stupid.

OK, I had to look up panentheist on wikipedia to know what it was.

You tell me whether god is material or immaterial, or neither.
