All things (objects-material) are created and then they evolve and so YOU may be maat about senseless arguments that were given to the flock by snuffy.

rother Michael, wonderfully written. I agree 100%. Someone sure has benefitted from this God with human emotions and frailties huh?

"The eyes through which I see God are the same eyes through which God sees me." Great quote lord.

Although I enjoyed the article I have to interject that the one thing I completely disagreed with is the whole idea that God has mood swings. In order for someone to come to this conclusion they must believe in a "Theistic" entity meaning that they see God as a who. An anthropomorphic being with human limitations. I believe this is one of the primary reasons that religion has created so much pain and suffering in the world. Traditionally we have been taught that God is somehow a reflection of man with his emotional dysfunctions and psychological drama. Nothing could be further from the truth. In my worldview God can not have mood swings simply because God does not have human emotions. But at the same time God is the source of our emotions because emotions are functions of the spirit and God is spirit.

We have projected human failings onto God which perpetuates this idea that God gets angry, needs revenge, and somehow demands that we do certain things to gain his favor so that we can get into heaven. I personally believe that this is an antiquated theology that needs to be updated and brought into the 21st century.

I choose to believe in a "Deist" philosophy which means I view God as a "what" not a who. In other words I view God as the divine intelligence that not only created this universe but is also still creating it through evolution. Evolution is simply Gods way of creating. It is my belief that there is no conflict between evolution and creationism. Evolution is Gods heartbeat and Gods breath, Creationism is Gods actions. They work together in divine order. It is the law on which the entire Universe operates. With this point of view I can never see God as someone who needs anything from me.

When I embrace the idea that God is the energy or animating force of life that is inherent in everything, I then open my awareness to the idea that God is simply expressing itself in me, through me, as me.

The eyes through which I see God are the same eyes through which God sees me. (Robert Fulghum quote)

Hannaan, A great book to read to understand just how polytheistic or tolerant, take you pick, the ancient hebrews could be is The Source by James Michener. Michener is known for the meticulous research compiled by his team for his upcoming books. However, Mr. Black suggests never read two of his books during the same period.
