I am a Child of an all loving & Powerful GOD/Spirit. GOD lives inside of me & you. I've been filling my Spirit box for years, most especially the past 3+ years. Our Creator lives in the TRUTH & the Light of Truth will come to pass. This is Spiritual warfare & GOD wins, in the meantime, I will continue to speak Truth to tyranny & know that my Soul is not for sale. Thank you AB for your powerful article, very insightful ...

Interestingly , my recent article awaiting publication-I hope-about RSE in the school curriculum and the sexualisation of young children , has a section in it on the theme of God is our maker-we don't get to decide who we are, that has already been decided for us. My source speaks of man trying to be God and as you point out desperately searching for himself and trying fill the void in many different ways.

Excellent article. Perhaps not coincidentally, you posted this on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar.

If I may, I recommend looking into the work of Christopher Langan.

He first caught my attention for being plugged in the media as the guy with one of the world's highest IQs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cy9o0lSJpk

But, far more importantly, he used mathematical logic to prove God (and by proof, I mean a real, rigorous proof).

Here's a good list of resources:

And here's his personal substack: https://chrislangan.substack.com/?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=substack_profile

Bob Malone put out an article on him on his substack not so long ago too:

Your explanation and question of Namaste' takes away from the honoring that is inherent in the word and action. Who says "We refuse to bow to the supranatural Being who created the universe and all life"? Just because we honor the God in you? Do you believe there is separation, God is some far away deity? The word "religiosity" is a thud to me. Too small a focus for a wide and wonderful multitudinous expression of Spirit that encompasses the world in various ways. Read what hospice workers say about death and dying and your vision will be increased a thousand fold. You seem to have a lot to learn about the metaphysical world. Dr. Robert Malone certainly has a wide vision, more than he lets on...

We do seem to be hard wired for the transcendent. The question is then which transcendent? Which religion is true? They can’t all be.

I believe that Jesus is the Truth, as he claimed to be, and thus Christianity, with its Jewish roots, is the true religion.

JudaeoXn religious belief is the only place where God is personal, and loves his creation, and loves each of us personally.

Moreover, I find it very interesting that even people from non-personal (pantheistic) religious backgrounds, when they have a near death experience, feel personally loved by a divine person.

Recently came across ID the Future. Great podcast (or whatever one wants to call it). Very thought provoking. And coincidentally, some of their presentations/discussions are at a university right down the street from me. Hope to be able to make it to one sooner or later.

Thank you, beautiful piece. You’ve written something that the world needs to hear.

I have to kindly disagree, God is not a hypothesis
