Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations."

    Does this Supreme Being respond to prayer, and if so, does the being prefer quantity or quality?

    I once sent a PM to "God" and he answered back, but I can't be sure if it's THE GOD.

    God as the eternal source from which all creation springs and lives through. I wouldn't even begin to comprehend what it means to say such a thing exists. I believe that the source can be known by every particle and every wave, as that which allows it to exist, its requisite. And all existence, from this universe to those that have no meaningful existence to this universe, all exist through this source. Due to the fractal nature of creation, we can see the echo of God in all things, and through meditation on this we transcend to higher levels of understanding.

    We are not talking about the tortoise and the hare, we are talking about God ordering Abraham to tie up his son Isaac on a sacrificial altar and stand over him with a butcher's knife ready to cut him up alive.

    So strange that you obsess over an event where God DIDN'T kill someone when he's responsible for 150,000 people dying every day.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Mortality is a two way street. One can either be angry about it or grateful. It all depends on one's personal preferences. Do you want to do the same thing for eternity or are you grateful for change?

    That being said, I find it ironic that people don't question death as much as belief. Are you so certain death is an end and not a beginning? On what foundation of logic is that based on? There is no cycle in nature which ever seizes to be. Why assume that cycles of cycles end then? It seems illogical.

    a seed mourns its loss when it becomes a blade of grass
    a blade of grass mourns its loss when it becomes the soil
    the soil mourns its loss when it becomes many things
    a single thing becomes many things
    what is there to mourn?

    Still, we will mourn because a life without mourning is like a life without joy
    we will honor the ones who have gone
    we will honor the ones we leave behind
    but we will always be with the ones we love

    what more is there than that?
