" it didn't really answer any of my points."
It t'weren't from lack of trying, Dr Wu. I really did try.
"In the end you belive in an invisible being so imo it's hardly different than people believing in paranormal events like ufos and aliens, bigfoot, etc . Indeed if ufos and aliens or dimensional entities exist then they are far more real than...God....at least from what we can surmise on any real level."
I think you are stating 'belief is belief is belief'. I suppose that is true.
If an alien existed in a specific instance, then it is real - if we accept that "real" has meaning, and we define "real" to mean tangible, touchable, solid, observable. I don't know that is a 100% definition of 'real'. For instance, "Coke is the real thing". Indeed. A classic marketing phrase that has endured the test of time, yet it says ... nothing.
If I believe in gravity, gravity does not care. If I don't believe in gravity, I will have many painful reminders it is real.
If I believe in family, God, Mom, apple pie, and the American way, those are probably all good things, but none of these are "real', but they are powerful and important and we base many of our life's choices on things such as this. [For UK'ers: God save the Queen!].
If I believe Chevrolet makes a better car than Ford, those could be redneck fighting words. That would be a reality of a different kind, and painful in some parts of South Louisville, KY. Not so much among penguins in Antarctica.
So maybe belief needs to be defined a little more precise, and maybe belief in a religious view that is important to many millions and unimportant to others is somewhat different than a belief in a cryptozological animal, or a debatable myth, or which brand of toothpaste is best. - Maybe. Maybe not. I'm open to hearing more.
So, I am game to continue discussing this, but I need someway to nail a board to the wind here. What specific instance of ufo or of bigfoot or of transdimensional portal are we discussing. Or all of them in general? Throw one into the mix, and we'll see if it is real or an act of faith and belief.
If we are talking in general terms, we can proceed in only two ways. I give my personal viewpoint with continuing stories and anecdotes from my worldview and you compare and contrast yours, or we discuss it from an historic viewpoint - pro and con - of the specific topic.
I think by now you know I believe in God, don't believe in Santa Claus, do believe in "ghosts", undecided about bigfoot, do believe in the ivory billed woodpecker, sadly don't think the flying saucer reports I have reviewed so far were aliens or much more than a misunderstood event. I usually see things in rose colored glasses tinted by existentialism and sometimes transcendentalism, and I have strongly held moral views. I also like horror stories, Star Trek, and other 1960's era things. The cards are on the table, and you see all my presuppositions.
Your turn, my friend.
(Besides, we have people looking for entertainment value from our discussion, and their popcorn is getting cold.)
