do you believe in god?

http://www.excludedmiddle.com/wilson%20interview.html

we are so used to being asked this question this way that we don`t stop to think about the trap of words that we are exposed to every time we hear that sentence.

believe?

sure.

why not.

in the absence of any sort of facts or knowledge, belief falls in.

here is a question i prefer.

was god an extraterrestrial?

or;

was jesus a christian?

the answers are yes to the first one and no to the second.

I've told you before, go look in a mirror.

Was God an extraterrestrial? Ha, ha, ha, don't make me laugh, it's a spirituality only. You monkeys sure have thick heads. Hugs.

bill, we have this perception that we are material creatures, which is valid but only part of the picture as you know.......though most don`t go as far as to realise that any person or entity who created everything here would have to be, by definition, extraterrestrial.

that all i meant.
