paigetheoracle Posted January 20, 2010 Report Share Posted January 20, 2010 I'm playing the Devil's advocate here. What if the Lord of Creation as the Creationists see him*/ it are true? Could God be playing tricks with our mind by altering reality as in The Matrix? Could the Supreme Being alter what we take to be fixed reality, so that we gain the illusion that this world was created millions of years ago, instead f five minutes ago, under our very feet and away from our sight? (Bishop Berkeley's point about the quad not being there, if we aren't here to witness it). Like Star Trek, the original series or CGI, where things are constantly being created before our eyes - could the American Indian idea of a Trickster God, play into this as one who deliberately confuses and creates havoc in the minds of Men, for his own amusement? (Men as God's play things or an intellectually superior mind, that can alter matter at will, messing with men's minds) *Note, I don't say 'she'.
