What if you reached out and found a mirror?

And then....noticed what was behind you was an intentional experiment in order to decide ?

The only true reality was you, the now revealed God-Head. Nothing was real.

Which switch gets pulled? Is it a go. A fair question.

( I have the answer and it covers all thought, but its tricky, another fun day at CD!)

just imagine if the us navy could go back in time say to around the time of jesus with all their hi tec weapons.. and say to the people, "bow before us!!! cause we are gods... and if you don't we will vaporize your holy ground with one command.. the people laughed a them, well you asked for it!!! says "the navy",,>> fire away said the "captain", and so the crew fired a 50 megaton nuke at mount ararat and turned it into a pile of tectites, and before the navy knew it all the people were on the ground kneeling and woshiping the us navy, and begging for forgiveness for all the sins they have committed..

so if you ever meet up with a god remember that
Modern technology will not reveal who God really is. God come down to pay Paul a visit. Paul can tell you his story when God spoke to him.
Just read Acts 9:3-9. I don't think Paul gave God any argument as to his authenticity.

It's impossible. Any sufficiently advanced alien race, especially if they have a lotus-eater machine, would be able to accomplish (or seem to accomplish) any test I could ask of it. Of course, from my perspective, the entity would then be a god for all practical purposes.

Major red flag of fake godhood: they picked the "miracle" themselves. That would make me extremely suspicious. Solid evidence of godhood would be accomplishing anything the natives tell them to do.

I would agree, except that if they didn't claim to be an omnipotent God, but more like a greek god of war, then they shouldn't be expected to be able to do everything the natives ask.

These are all interesting posts on a very provocative topic. My personal experience does not lend itself to an answer. In the mental state (deep meditation) that I encountered God the "knowing" is an intrinsic part of the mental state and leaves no room for doubt or need for further proof. It is a life changing experience. Sorry.

It's ALL - everything we think - how the world seems to us - is interpreted through our minds!
"Atheists" are just as illusional as those who disbelieve in others' beliefs.

It's humbling to realize that we so often fool ourselves... yet it's also empowering to realize when we feel bad emotionally, we're also fooling ourselves.
Thoughts are powerful - we might as well have them work FOR, rather than against us!

it's a red flag to your modern 20first century thinking,>> not to all those primitive heathens that existed 2000 years ago

those people couldn't even comprehend the power of a 50 megaton hydrogen bomb..

Yes, fear, and fear can make a man profess to almost anything....even a belief that he doesn't really have.
