I have declared myself a god. Do you see the difference?
I believe in the goodness of the concept of god and believe that in order for that concept to have created me, god must have created me as an equal and not a subordinate.
I am not claiming authority over other gods or my brothers and sisters.
"and presumably therefore create your own truth and morality you must then admit that everyone else has the same right/ability."
Truth is a matter of perspective. If I say it is a sunny day and you say that it is not, we can both be telling the truth based on our perspective.
Morality can be summed up well in my opinion by resorting to the golden rule of non aggression.
Jesus said, "Love your brother like your soul, guard him
like the pupil of your eye."
"Anything goes and can be deemed righteous by anyone."
It can be deemed righteous by anyone, but it does not mean that it is. By claiming to be a god, I am claiming the authority to act and speak for myself and deem righteous what I hold as the truth under my perspective while not submitting myself to the authority of any other gods.
"This means there is no truth, no right or wrong. Anything goes and can be deemed righteous by anyone. And that is exactly the path we are headed down because of people unable to concede that there just MIGHT exist things beyond the capability of their finite human reasoning and sensory capacity. "
What does the possibility of things existing "beyond the capability of their finite human reasoning and sensory capacity" have to do with "truth", "right or wrong" and deeming things righteous?
"That is the fatal conceit of your pronouncement."
Once you answer my previous question maybe I can comprehend what you mean.
I try to change people every day. Do You?
