    I like this a lot. I’ve been saying for a year now I’m an atheist because I don’t believe in gods, but I don’t rule out the universe is a very strange and some people are attuned to it differently than others. But then there’s the possibility (haha) that someone is running the show if this is all a digital simulation or reincarnation wheel. But, I believe nothing, although it’s interesting sometimes to imagine.

    We are all god.

    (And I love this video. If I were (mumble mumble) years younger I’d want to marry this guy. He’s adorable. ) And he makes a great deal of sense.
    I would have to say I’m probably a Possibilian, on a good day.
    But I agree with Jim, there is just too much out there to rule out anything.

    What a great communicator. I’m impressed, and anyone who creates a new word (Possibilian) can’t be bad.

    Which has the greater possibility of being true?
    One: Humans evolved on earth, and for all intents and purposes, are on their own on planet earth.
    Two: A creator-God put humans on earth to see if they could find their way back to heaven?

    I might have been a possibilian at some point, but I fear that ship has sailed. It would take an extraordinary amount of solid evidence to move me from where I be at the moment.

    Not bold baseless assertions, not wishful, dreamy, pie eyed, possibilities, not the cold calculated big fat maybes that hide behind unknowns of the universe either. I’m also not interested the cat and mouse game of philosophical word mincing that so many love to play. Show me what you have or forget about it.

    In fact forget what you have, I’m not even interested at this point. Tell your gods to show me what they have, then we can begin the conversation. Until then it’s a waste of my time.

    Though the whole thing at times can be an interesting spectator sport…

    I am affraid, that I am more of an “unlikelian”, than a “possibilian”. To me the magic crystals and suggested gods are simply extremely unlikely from the get go, in face of lacking evidence. I do not give them much benefit of the doubt, as my cultural heritage is not to accept ideas not supported by existing science just because they are out there. I have no reason to, and it is not because I feel the need to commit to anything, but it is more like since I do not need to commit or even give any credence to silly and nonsensical ideas, just because some other dude came up with them. Should I now get the unlikelianism.com web page for myself? How many google hits do you suppose I would get?

    Now, committing to something, or some idea does not mean, it becomes a part of my identity, that I am unable to give up. If someone later in time comes up with reliable scientific evidence for gods, or magical crystals, I am perfectly willing and able to change my position, even though I never gave them any space even as possibilities beforehand. However, I have come to notice, that the worse methods people have to come to conclusions, the more likelier they are to make those conclusions a part of their identity and never give up on them. Not even in the face of overwhelming evidence. I suppose, it is because the level of commitment is tied to the unwelcome realization of the poor methodology people have for reaching conclusions. Nobody likes to think they have acted stupid. But it is not stupid, if you were only ignorant of some greater reality.

    If a person is about to realize, that they have committed much of their life and values on an idea, that was THE truth to them only because their parents and priests (or some other form of ritual experts) told them so, and not based on any actual evidence, merely on the authority of those beloved and/or relied upon individuals, they do not seem to enjoy to entertain the POSSIBILITY, that they have based much more in their lives including the rest of their identity on equally poor logic. Then the counter reaction seems almost inevitable.

      You give a very good justification for this position. I think I find it quite persuasive.
