    eurgh... I hate how I always come across on these forums as a "motokhases" (forgot the correct persian word), because Im not, lol (and i hate people who are like that).
    Im only asking this because Ive never heard of this before (apart from people in cults who think they are "Gods"). So this is in no way a "bahs"... it is a genuine question:

    If you are saying we are God then who do you (personally) think created us?

    Just so you know, this is my own personal belief: God created us in His image, but there is no way that I can be God. If anything, i am a servant of God, but thats it. Not God - no way...lol.. I am nothing. And the proof is that I am subjected to certain laws (e.g. sleeping, eating, etc) which if I dont obey then I die, so it is proof that there is a higher creation (i.e. God) which is controlling me.
    To call ourselves God implies that humans are perfect (because God is perfection) but thats does not make sense because all humans have imperfections. Even the most honest, kindest, politest, whatever-est human being has a little imperfection in his life somewhere. That makes him imperfect.
    And yes, I do think that men are weak when compared to God -- everyone/everything is.

        Bahar: in the holy books (e.g. Torah, Quran, Kitab Aqdas, Bible) I have always seen it written that man has been created in the image of God.

        I can post the sentences for you later on if you want.
        I dont have anything with me right now

          According to these books, man was created BY god, so why is Bandary saying that we are all god?

            If you have ever notice Zubin normally does not get involved in religious talk...anyhooooo

            Maryam jaan, information and energy creates the nature of reality. If that is your belief then who am I to argue with you. You will wake up one day but it seems like today is not the day. So...meanwhile try to reason with yourself...ask questions..such as

            Why would a god who is all powerfull and all knowing would want to create anyone in his own image? And why would he, after he created them, would want them to be his servants? Why would he need a servant at all? And how do you suppose he wants to be served? And how are you serving your God? I mean how do you know that is what your God wants?

            That is good start.
            I would be true, for there are those who trust me;
            I would be pure, for there are those who care;
            I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
            I would be brave, for there is much to dare.
            I would be friend of all—the foe—the friendless;
            I would be giving and forget the gift;
            I would be humble, for I know my weakness;
            I would look up and laugh—and love—and lift.
