    They're beyond any mortal concept of power.

    Why worship something you cannot possibly know exists?

    And how are you going about "earning" it? By fighting with your neighbors? Slandering them and offending them? Sowing hate, discourse, and war?

    Right, but they're not all powerful. Sure, good for a few things, but not everything. So what's the use of having a tree if it can't do everything?

    Since metaphors seem to be sailing high over heads, that's about how silly it sounds to put the bar so high for worship of a god or gods in that they must be all-powerful to be worshiped. Especially when put there by folk who don't really believe in said gods.

    Is it that you dont even follow logic and reason as a criterion since you said "there is no criterion"? You cant just have superficial criterions while claiming there are no criterions.

    In my mind, reason and logic is the most important criterion and that's the probably the only so called "criterion" that's valid for this kind of topic. Its not to demonstrate how anything would work, it is to actually have a criterion and make reason.

    Unless conversations are ll just for the sake having them. Do you understand?

    I'm not. Again: Since metaphors seem to be sailing high over heads, that's about how silly it sounds to put the bar so high for worship of a god or gods in that they must be all-powerful to be worshiped.

    I said a criterion for a one true religion/god has yet to be established. So far all I see are circular reasoning, bias, personal mantra and the like.

    Where is that criterion? Where is there a connection to a one true religion/god that can not be refuted?

    Whichever one suits the person the best. If it makes you a better person, it's the one for you. Oh, you mean true for everyone? None of them.

    Those who worship God the right way:
    1. Believe and teach only what is in the Bible. (1 Thessalonians 2:13) (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
    2. Worship only Jehovah and use his name and teach others his name. (Matthew 4:10) (John 17:6)
    3.Show true love for one another. (John 13:35)
    4.Obey Jesus and believe God sent Jesus to save us. (John 3:36) (Acts 4:12)
    5. Do not get involved in politics (John 18:36) (Acts 5:29)
    6. Teach and preach to others that God's Kingdom is the only solution to the world's problems. (Matthew 24:14) (Matthew 6:10)

    Only Jehovah's Witnesses meet all these requirements. (Isaiah 43:10-12)

    So basically you are not interested in any criterions or anything of the sort. At least that's what it seems like Viker.

    In fact, do you have any other criterion?

    For those who need some entertainment to fulfil what they lack otherwise, this type of rhetoric is God.

    I'm very interested and still waiting.

    I don't have or require a criterion for me. I'm not one who believes they have the one true religion.

    Atheism is a path. You’re climbing a mountain and don’t even know it. ;)

    I don’t see the mountain as exclusively religion. There are even non-religious paths up that mountain.

    See, what you need then is to have a thread on evidence for a creator or something like that. But you are engaged in a thread that discusses some true religion, for which if you are to engage, rather than making rhetorical dismissals and enjoyable jibe, you should have some criteria to measure anything against. You dont even seem to like reason and logic by the way you are responding.

    Anyway, since this is to compare theologies, which one do you think is more reasonable, polytheism or monotheism? And why? Based on what criteria? At least this way you could eliminate some things to narrow the topic down.
