    Someone once suggested to me there could be someone living on the earth today who is the manifestation of God and and all of existence would rise and fall repeatedly with their birth and death. Also they could never be identified because God would have made it that way so no one would harm this individual. To top it off this person would know this about their nature but would never speak of it for obvious reasons. If this were true all religious books would be false as would much of history and science. In your opinion is this possible and or plausible given the unknown nature of existence?

    The title is a joke.
    Obviously this wouldn’t be Jesus.

    Is only outer space privy to the great unknowns?
    Could there be some great unknowns on earth?
    After all, we are apart of outer space, no?

    No, it's completely implausible.

    I take that you’re offended by the title?

    I’ll take that as you think it’s delusional as you gave no reasons why you feel that way.

    The manifested powers would lie in the individuals birth and death as the OP states

    Almost anything is in theory plausible, it depends on the conditions by which you want to put it to the test.

    Going through what you have written here, there are no conditions by which you can test whether this is true or false.

    Let me try to rewrite what you asked and see if you think what I wrote is plausible:

    Some random person told me that a unicorn disguised as a horse is somewhere on Earth, if it should ever reveal itself to anyone, then it would turn the whole Earth into gold using magic and all life would end. The unicorn can't be hurt and have no interest in turning the Earth to gold, so it will never happen for obvious reasons. If this were true, wouldn't everybody that say that unicorns and magic doesn't exist be wrong? In your opinion is this plausible given that we don't know anything about unicorns or magic?

    What would you answer to that? :D

    Sure it's possible, but who cares under those conditions, there is absolutely no way to even remotely verify it and it doesn't seem to affect anything anyway.

    Well, yeah I don't want you to take it the wrong way but it does remind me of some claims some mentally ill people have made before. They even have a name for it in psychology. "Messiah complex" It's pretty common actually and it's really hard to convince people they are wrong about it. They really believe they are the Messiah or God manifest or something like that.

    You should ask your friend if they mean to allude to themselves. If they say yes then ... yeah you should be a bit concerned for them. Even if they don't say yes then I would still take it with a rather large grain of salt.

    I’ll take that as you think it’s possible and plausible but highly doubtful

    Since it is impossible to know about a person who is unknown to us, the answer is mute, no matter what is answered in this thread is just a guess

    It is not something i use time on thinking about. because it is a question it is no right answer to. so to answer yes it is possible or no it is not possible could both be right or wrong. there are other more important questions to be asked

    I would find it completely irrelevant.

    Im much more interesting in knowing, how you wouldn't be able to draw that conclusion yourself or what you hope to get out of the answers you are getting? :)

    I’ve drawn my conclusion. I’m interested in other opinions.

    I don’t think my question is unimportant.

    I’m referring more to the concept rather than the messiah complex mental illness. What if that person didn’t know their true nature or did know and led a life not exhibiting any psychotic behavior and just accepted their true nature? Either scenario there’s not much in the way of a mental illness.

    Hypothetically of course meaning that this person was factually the one and actually knew it.

    I might have to believe in Jesus 1.0 first, which is rather difficult for me I'm afraid, so not exactly expecting Jesus 2.0 or anyone else. :oops:
