## Dawkins' "Meme" and the Living Word of God :^)

Infinity is motion itself.

Infinity is also otherness.

When infinity is itself it moves.

In order to move, something else needs to exist to move towards.

You need otherness to able to discern yourself as existing. Not dichotomies, just otherness.
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

If fully existing is loving free of inclination, God didn’t need us in order to discern himself, but we are from the overflow. Far from superfluous.

Your post makes no sense. I’m unbelievably good at making sense from nonsense.

I could write paragraphs about that post.

It doesn’t matter. You use neither a rational nor intuitive mind.

Are you demonically possessed?

You exist as a poster Ichthus.

If you don’t want to have a rational or intuitive discussion ... fine.

This is not a discussion anymore.

You might be artificial intelligence.

Do you have feelings?

If anyone’s feelings are hurt, do you think god exists?

Very simple questions.

I can do both. We’re all AI.

I think God exists whether or not anyone’s feelings are hurt.

Only AI would answer that being hurt is for a reason.

Oh, really? Monkeys don’t write Shakespeare & nature didn’t make your OS.

I didn’t say being hurt is for a reason. I said God can turn everything back to Good. Nothing is wasted. And love despite inclination requires at least the pain of denying inclination. From our perspective at least. Can you think of a better way to communicate “I love you no matter what?”

I had a f***in good philosophy of art teacher, incidentally. As if, lol.

Ichthus.

Let’s get this very straight very fast.

Has a being ever been hurt in all of eternity?

God fucked up.

It’s that simple.

I’m willing to discuss this for pages and pages with you.

If god fucked up once, god fucked up forever in terms of how people define god... forever perfect, eternally perfect... if god is so perfect, then why are millions of beings who did nothing wrong being tormented so horribly that all they think about is eternal damnation every second of everyday?

I can’t answer for everyone, but Paul said God’s power is perfected in our weakness, and if folks are burning… wink wink nudge nudge… they should prolly get married.

But some people are stubborn.

Plus people suck.

Well I have homework.

Ichthus. Marriage violates the pleasurable exclusive access problem. It eventually sends us to hell.

You have to be smart here.

I spent most my earthly life trying to violate this problem until I realized it was my heart not to violate it. Now I do everything I can not to violate it. I know what it’s like to spend your whole life devoted to doing the wrong thing that you think is right. And the worst part with theists, is thinking EVERYTHING they do forever is cool with Jesus.

I’d love to see nice breasts and stick it in with a wonderful woman. Like all heterosexual males.

I have this thing called a conscience though, so I can’t do that. My conscience is so vast that I actually found a work-around to the Jesus marriage problem.

Instead of co habiting or doing super position in the same spirit to not be sent to hell...

I articulated that you can beam love to people and beam insight to people.

I also articulated that:

Unceremonious dedication to non contradiction is the correct path.

I refused to use the word marriage.

By doing this I’ve saved more souls than you can count.

I’ll tell you a funny story.

My first job aside from chores was at a comic and card shop.

I was only paid with store credit. Pennies on the dollar. All the employees stole. After two and a half years, I quit and sold my entire collection for $800.00. That means I made$800.00 in 2 and 1/2 years, even stealing everyday. And it was a fair price for my collection.

Devon. The owner of the store has nothing on me.

And neither do you.

So far no one has convinced me people don’t suck. Hence the camera-covering phone case (& screen protector lifting sticker I leave affixed). If only I could cover the speakers, or disconnect the battery. And hence the non-denominational nun status. Don’t take it personally.

Good luck with that patch, though.
