No, God technically believes in a diety (he/she/it self) so he/she/it cannot be atheist.

The bigger question is: Why doesn't God believe in me!

I assume he has my address!:2wave:

In the OT there is a taste of henotheism (Belief in one god without denying the existence of others), instead of the later progressed monotheism. Example:

Exodus 20:3

"You shall have no other gods before me."

This is an example of henotheism because if the theology at the time was monotheistic, there would be no reason to say "gods".

The Real McCoy

This could quite possibly be one of the most pointless questions I have ever seen/heard.

I'm curious as to what you Christians would do if god spoke to everyone saying, "The Christian god is a lie. Stop adulating a lie." I bet many of you would blow him off as Satan.:lol:

Dear Lord...here we go.

God believes souly in himself. We believe in Him. In turn, he helps us, and in exchange for that, we praise Him. For that, we earn a place in heaven. Great deal, I say.

You are assuming first that there is a "God" or any other supernatural thing.

Correct. God really doesn't have to believe in anything else because after Him, there's no one or nothing in a position of higher authority.

:confused: What???????

I said you are assuming there is a "God" or other supernatural thing. So how is it that I'm correct when you say there is a "God"?

You were asking if I believe in God, weren't you? I say yes.

It is reasonable to assume that. As athesim is the default position. if you deposit a claim that god exists, you are expected to provide evidence, as that is a direct assertion about reality. But it's fine to say "I believe god exists"- as that is a personal assertion, and needs no supporting evidence.

I am a godless person, so I don't believe in a "God", but that wasn't the point of the discussion, Baxter said:

"Dear Lord...here we go.

God believes souly in himself. We believe in Him. In turn, he helps us, and in exchange for that, we praise Him. For that, we earn a place in heaven. Great deal, I say.
"

So there he was assuming there is a "God".

Now I didn't say something like this, if I posted I would try to say more reasons why I am godless. But Baxter assumed there was a "God", in his post when I find there is little evidence to support that.I was just merely pointing out that he assumed there was a "God".
