Re: You may not believe in God but She still believes in you, (for Ronin)

To me Divinity is what you make of it. Through religion you can become quite
empowered, as well as disempowered. There are many methods and traditions,
each equally valid. Perhaps you are wondering if I "believe" in an outside
God. God is real because He affects me, indirectly through His worshippers
who "believe" in Him. I personally don't acknowlege any kind of objective
reality, but nor do I reject one. Gods are "real" because they affect me,
just as "capitalism" is real, "homosexuality" is real, "mental illness" is
real, etc.

"His followers called him Mahasamatman and said he was a god. He preferred to
drop the maha and atman however, and called himself Sam. He never claimed to
be a god. But then, he never claimed not to be." - Lord of Light
