God Incognito

The Big Guy is not Falsifiable

Attributes;

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.
