McGill university is killing me. I can't focus on anime, can't focus on games. Can't hang out with anyone. It's really lonely being a university student 1000s of kilometres away from home. And McGill is something else
A while ago you said "world war 2 ended when Hitler lost to Russia not because of the American nukes that was only for Japan". To me, this sounded like you were saying the entire Pacific Theater of WW2 was essentially just a side-show. Do you think that's a fair interpretation of what you said, or an unfair one? If the latter, why? And do you still stand by that statement?
You posted this in my thread and I thought it was kinda off-point but I wanted to answer it as well.
"Tell me one thing. If you know something, then how can you believe it. Believing something is completely different then knowing it. If this world really is a test to test our beliefs, then what would be the point of God revealing himself to is. Then we would not need to belief, we will know and hence the entire point of testing us would be nullified. God, if he exists, can not be perceived by us as he has made us this way. It's like how we can not percieve 4 dimensional or 5 dimensional beings. We have our limitations."
It would be very difficult if not impossible to not believe that which is known.
The test is whether or not to embrace God's commands though, right? If we don't even know if such a being exists at all then the test is invalid.
For example, even if I knew such a being existed I would have to choose whether or not to follow its commands. The revelation would not be problematic to this ultimate choice.
Most people I've encountered will claim that god is perceptible to us. I'm on your side on this one, it's like attempting to deal with an additional dimension.
However, because I'm in agreement with you on this I would expect you to agree that belief in this other dimension or this god is unreasonable since we have no reason to believe it's there.
