    I know my history. And I have my own theories on things.

    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Sounds a bit like the game:

    Rule 1: You are playing The Game.
    You, along with everyone else in the world, always is, always has been,
    and always will be playing The Game. Neither awareness nor consent is required to play.

    Rule 2: Every time you think about The Game, you lose.
    Loss is temporary; as soon as you forget about The Game you stop losing.
    The objective of The Game is to forget that it exists. Good luck.

    Rule 3: Loss of The Game must be announced.
    Every time you think about The Game, and hence lose, you must say so.
    This is the only rule that can be broken, but do you really need to cheat..?

    The alternatives with which I am familiar from history are grim indeed. As for you, I thought you valued your own position enough to want others to understand it. The fact that I have to ask means you have not explained yourself well. At all.

    Of course, perhaps you want to be misunderstood.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Now let's assume God actually created the universe. "Universe" pretty much means "absolutely everything that exists".
    If God created everything, there would have to be nothing before. Nothing includes God.

    That means nothing could have created everything, because there would have to be something able to create everything, but if there is something, then that something is automatically everything, and there wasn't nothing in the first place.

    That means God (irrelevant of its existence) didn't create the universe.

    I once used that argument debating with a Christian and he said, "God was around before the universe was". So I asked "What created God, then?" to which he replied, "God created himself". I asked "How?" and he said, "He just did, he can do anything".

    When they put on the Armour Of God, they must do so to deflect logic and reasoning.

    What if God is existence itself.

    Then does that make God no more than a label? If we already call it existence then surely we don't need to refer to it as God, i.e. another word for the same thing?

    I also saw the term God being interchangeable with "things we don't understand". Who believes in sun gods now, now that we know what the sun is?

    Let us refine the definition of the word God then.
