Honey has reinvented God in his own image.

For twenty years he says he has struggled with the question of who is God. And now he has finally re-invented God in a likeness that doesn't offend his own logic too much. Can he call himself "Christian" or "Cof E" if he has invented his own God? Should he call himself a Honeyist? We can all invent our own version of God like Honey, but each explanation would be equally fictitious and irrelevant to the real world. How sad that Honey has spent 20 years struggling to explain the absurd. Wouldn't that 20 years have been better spent explaining real phenomena, as a scientist?

          "if god exist he didn't send himself down to earth to die." explain it rational if you think that Bible is just an historical literature.

        Mar 24 2011: The bible is a historical literature; rationalizing a fairy tale is something I cannot do I just wonder why no one else has commented on this. Was it because I am being rude?

    Mar 28 2011: Anybody here long for a good parent ? Man, I do. And since my idea of God is that of a good parent which we hope to internalize and have with us all the time, Yes, I do believe that God is love and that God is real and I believe that love never dies and that love is it's own excuse for being.,.,...................(:>) Be happy
