absolute power

Therein resides the nature of the God myth.

Feel free to express the pontifications of God.
Many have. Why wouldn't you?

God ________ ...

Easy for believers to say God _________ ...

Tempting for believers to say God ________ ...

Impossible to distinguish between a real
God _______ and a false God ________,
if you believe a God exists, unless, of course,
you accept the fact that the nature of the
God _______ statements reside deep within
the temptations of human nature to treat belief
in an all-powerful/all-controlling/all-knowledgeable
entity as reality rather than as myth.

If you can distinguish between there actually
being a God, and people just pretending or
believing there is one, then you have the key
to verity on all God matters.

If you have that key, please share with us the
difference between pretending or believing
there is a God, and there actually being a God.

By the way, in the modality of sharing that key,
you might also consider sharing the key of
difference between thera actually being much
less powerful myths as existent entities (there
being far too many to mention), and people
just pretending or believing that those much
less powerful myths, that folks by and large
don't believe in once they've reached adult-
hood, actually exist.

When it comes right down to it, isn't the only
difference between the ultimate myth and
the much less powerful myths that the energy
that folks devote to pretending and believing
in the biggest myth is far greater than is the
energy that folks devote to pretending or
believing in the less powerful myths?

- - -

Put another way, it would appear that the big-
ger the myth, the more time/energy/money/
effort that humans will devote to pretending
or believing it exists.

Desire a lot of time/energy/money/effort be
devoted to a myth?

Create a really big myth, like God.

Such has been the case throughout the history
of the evolved apes known as humans.
