E-mail from bahamababe1: (December 12, 2011) Re: Maria Duval article November 16 2011 Drivel

I do believe you are right about her so I threw the stuff that she just sent me tonight in the trash about her predictions. How the hell can she predict anything with out a birthdate etc? lol. Then I went on to read your next thing and Im sorry to have to tell you this but GOD does exist and he WAS the one who created the universe and everything in it. but dont take my word for it, just wait until after you die and either find yourself in heaven or hell. If you dont believe there is a GOD I guarantee you will when you find yourself in hell. I hope for your souls sake that you do not go there. And I am NOT a bot.

 

Dear bahamababe1:

Maria Duval is persistent and beguiling; a good remedy is to google her name and see the comments of those who have sent her money.

The problem about God is–there are so many versions of him, it seems a reasonable assumption that they are only ideas or speculations. People who claim to know what God is or what God wants are speaking without evidence. If the world was created with "intent" (a very human concept)-- as so many believe-- it is a good idea to look at the world we experience through our senses in order to get some sort of evidence or clue as to the nature of the Intender. That world is not an altogether reassuring testament to his competence or good will. (See Drivel November, 2009, A Child’s Arguments against Religion.)

A book such as The Sixth Extinction by Richard Leakey, which suggests the rather chaotic and random history of the earth, challenges–for me--the ideas of order and intent–the notion that "God’s in his heaven and all’s right with the world."

Finally, the notion of God does not solve the chief mystery–where does anything come from? It is a convenient way of stopping the discussion–without acknowledging the unfathomable mystery. No one asks: "But where did God come from?"

    "I don't think I've ever seen anything quite so egocentric.  I would say Dr. Dreimer has a highly exaggerated view of his abilities. It's all pretty dull stuff."
