    I have faith that the universe is eternal is that not enough?

    No you have to have faith in God. Have you got a gun against your head?

    I was joking.
    I dont say I have faith but rather that I have a confidence in things and that confidence is apportioned upon the evidence that I can gather ... what else can I do?

    I'm not sure that makes sense.

    Obviously God isn’t a human, and I don’t quite get the gist of your post. Is it meant to clarified fly God being a human? Or what?

    The OP references the song "What If God Was One of Us (Just a stranger on a bus)". So yes, he's asking if God is a human among us.

    It's not "obvious" that God isn't a human, since - as you yourself have pointed out - his nature is pretty hard to pin down. It's as valid a notion as any other.

    How does being "beyond measure" move to a position mutually exclusive of "summum bonum"?

    Those who would subjectively characterize God as summum bonum. What you perceive as the ultimate good may be considered mediocrity by God.

    If you're talking about the God I think you are, then the answer is Satan. I'll make a thread on that sometime.

    Satan, another “known” quantity.

    That just means there is a more accurate manner to characterize the term.

    Recently a member remarked that Zeus would manipulate his form for infidelity...

    This religion is way too hard for me to figure out.
