    appreciate it

    i wish they would use another term than "GOD"

    we need a more finite, expansive definition if you may

    "GOD" means too many different things to different people

    which is why we need a to refine the definition

    case and point WE ALL BREATHE OXYGEN, WE ALL NEED FOOD & WATER, WE ALL AGE, WE ALL NEED SLEEP, WE ALL DIE

    yet we all are bent on showing the differences among us

    when in reality it's all the same

    i don't see other mammals with this issue, why do humans have such an

    issue in base understanding?

    yes i know it's a long story

    well anyway

    i appreciate brother Knowledge

    keep doing what you do mane

    Whether the word "God" or "creator" or "universal force" is used, is irrelevant. The point is, people no longer have a sense self-reliance. Everything is done based upon books and deities.

    ok

    you are right, but to say the word you use is irrelevant,

    well having 40 different names for the same thing doesn't help either

    if you're calling it what you "think" it to be under the terms of present

    programming we are subject to in real time, how can you find self-reliance

    if the wording is backwards?

    um last time i checked books were written in words

    I don't understand what you are saying. Please reword your question.


    Last time I checked, those books were written based upon the claim that they were inspired by a deity.

    Interesting article. I believe there was some missing elements to it.
    The story does not mention where when why and how the 'God idea' manifested in man's history.

    Also when it covered blind faiths, it also didn't cover how or why that phenomina came into being or what/who is behind it. Unless the author thinks it is natural for grown folks to have a blind faith in something that they hold dear. Is blind faith natural for ppl of a certain age? Or is blind faith an actual man made construct that is used by men/women as a vehicle for control?

    yes

    i agree

    what doesn't get missed, gets intercepted

    and both are by designed

    the ability to miss "it" is by designed and the interception of that message
    by designed a point you clearly expressed in your comment

    um

    you can't be serious can you KS?


    how can you achieve self-reliance which is self-knowledge as well
    (you can't have reliance without knowledge) and the wording
    is distorted?

    you claimed that it's "irrelevant" what you call the "Most High"

    which in base terms you are correct, but i contend that the fact

    we call it 40 different names, and lack the true understanding

    does more to hurt then help us as a human unit

    i felt if there was one base understanding of the superior entity

    instead of the confusion that we are presently in, it would have

    tremendously towards the self-reliance and self knowledge you

    expressed.

    thank you for your comment

    yes blind faith given to you by someone else is crazy

    i don't see how having one universal word for "GOD" is such a stretch

    when we don't use 40 different names for water, or a term like "tape"

    tape is tape but one name for "god" is a stretch i find that amusing

    the english language is much of the problem TOO MANY WORDS

    HAVE TOO MANY DIFFERENT MEANINGS WHICH LEADS ME TO BELIEVE

    IT IS PART OF THE CONFUSION

    THE LANGUAGE ITSELF

    Huh? I have no idea what you saying. Please be plain and direct in wording.

    The point of the article was, THERE IS NO "superior entity".
