Long time no see, forum contributors. How's everybody been doing?
"Since it is obviously inconceivable that all religions can be right, the most reasonable conclusion is that they are all wrong." -- Christopher Hitchens
She starts of with an absurdity... and one that is "understood" she goes on to extoll more absurdities.
She goes from one dodgy hypothesis to jump a chasm of pseudo profundity to the next wobbly point. After transversing a sequence of "in other words" and "x which means y" to arrive at the desired conclusion of "guess there must be a "giver" if true" (which I certainly couldnt vouch for since I cant verify one link n the chain, little own all of them.
Does any one else feel Y's logic is worth deciphering, or is intentional scamming, or deception by mysticism?
or most likely just a dizzy theist trying to make it all sound logical?
lucky for you I was just checking in so I can be the first to answer you:)
first, 'never mind' on trying to understand me; aint gonna happen!
second, there is no answer till there is a question and for you there is no quest about the spiritual life, so no answer is possible:
third, I don't need to be understood right now....its a new freedom I have been given and it is making me very happy today: It also means I don't have to understand why you think the way you do and can let you be as much as I can let me off the hook trying to explain myself:

The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.
You havent solved the mysteries of life, you havent validated another world out there. The fact that you are happy with your ludicrous construct and feel you are better off for it says nothing about whether its better to do so. A convenient lie may be a haven from the turmoil of seeking truth, but either way "winning" isnt just accepting an attempted prophets delusions. You may have found a way to find easy answers, and be comfortable with them, but thats not the way to find correct ones.
You took your pick, "winner".
Dont be surprised though if most people disagree with them. There are heaps of incorrect answers for every correct one.
