God Gives Us The Ingredients

Just a thought: God gives us the ingredients; that we may bake the cake.

Faith in God isn't blind; involves faith in "Existence"; that is, faith in honesty.
Believe it or not; "ask, and it will be given to you, knock and the door will be opened to you. seek and you shall find" appears to be true- but you've got to be really really
non-kidding-yourself honest about it!

If humans are capable of teleportation, that solves a lot of problems about being caught in natural diasters etc. If they are capable of telepathy and of sensing their environment, solves even more hazards.

On a day to day basis, we trust honesty, facts and our own self-responsibility. The more we trust those, the more we trust in "Existence", that is "God". We may also trust more than this, trust
'gut feeling' and 'in hope' and so on. Those senses exist, we may trust there is something to them.

I totally disagree that one can not know. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall know God"- is that how the quote goes?

"Belief" is just "tentative theory banked on as if true".

To claim one can not know is inductive pessimism dogma- not logically 'valid'. Logically it is possible to know.

God doesn't control us; we control- to exist is to have control. God effectively says: now you are a piece in the free creative game of the cosmos- your move!
