God is in everyone?...

I recently heard this statement said by a woman I'd just met. I admit I don't really agree with it. But it got me wondering (a few days later)...how much of the Pit thinks humanity has some sort of divine spark? Even if you just think that "spark" is known as your "conscience"? Is there something in humanity that makes us special, something that could be attributed to some higher being?

Or would you say, "No"? If no, why?





Now, let's please not turn this into another thread where the "religious" people bash the Atheists or visa-versa. This isn't meant to be a "religious" topic; it's more a philosophical discussion. So, mind your manners, gentlefolk!

If God is in everyone then shouldn't the Devil be in there to?

Even from a Christian POV, saying that God is in everyone is meaningless because God is in everything in the universe according to the bible- It's not impressive at all.

Not God, but I believe our level of self-awareness and state of consciousness fundamentally sets us apart from other animals.

Well...humans certainly seem capable of great evil.

I mean, at the least, I'm sure a lot of us can remember laughing at the nerdy kid in school or maybe even being that kid ourselves. So, at the least, most of us are capable of small cruelties.

I agree. I didn't say that the statement made sense to me. To me, when this lady said it, I went, "Wtf?!"

Humanity is special above all other animals due to our intelligent thought process and emotions. So yes, humanity is special, but not from a divine creator.

I believe that the word 'God' is nothing more than a metaphor to describe what the material universe itself is. So saying that God is everywhere is like saying that the universe is everywhere, so it's not a very impressionable statement.

Well like, we evolved from apes and junk. So we're part of the big family of animals, man.

Is there some "spark" in us? Objectively, there is no way of knowing at the present, so the question is purely subjective. However, allow me to rephrase the question slightly:

Is there something in sentient life that makes it special?

I don't believe that humanity is unique in being self aware and I don't think that individuality and personality are unique to being human.

That doesn't mean you can't recognize the qualities you have that set you apart from everyone else in the family.

Face it dude, you're special as hell.

Call it God, call it humanity, it doesn't matter. I believe that if there is a creator, he isn't something outside of ourselves. We're all just extensions of one consciousness, different manifestations of a single mind.

Or, like, whatever.

No, the burden of proof is on the religious, they are making the claim. The default is the supernatural does not exist as nothing supernatural has ever happened.

That makes literally no sense.
