    What kind of person wrote this? Its just saying God does not exist. But God is the Engineer of the world. People that don’t accept God’s words will perish.

    The initial question of what kind of person wrote this, is subject to the opinions of other persons with the competence to agree or disagree with the theoretically constructed information; or others who because of religious or ideological reasons believe the producers to be either atheistic subversives, scoundrels, sinners, or if the contrary, devout, moral, and kind persons. But this website is not necessarily about being competent in science or theology, but about understanding religion as an art form, thus religious expressions, artistically and metaphorically. Metaphors are neither true or false, but have evocative power. It is the intention of this website to concentrate on what metaphors evoke, not to prove them true or false. The resulting discourse may be considered religious discourse, but not necessarily theological, because it is more like being emergent from religious or artistic expression and encounter: an epiphany, flash of insight, conversion, or being Woke.

    I don’t see how talking about God as if he doesnt exist is about metaphors. How could God be a methpor if He is the creator of everything?

    How else can one talk about God except metaphorically? We use metaphors to address what we do not know. Look at the names given for God in the OT. Then consider that Jesus is called God’s Son. Now think of the doctrinal conflict generated by those who took it literally and deduced conclusions from that premise. The confession of the OT God as Creator is metaphorical as is John confession that the pre-existing logos was Jesus, eternal with God, and being God. Beyond this, the question about God’s existence is a philosophical problem which generated all the rational arguments to prove the existence of such a being, and ended up only with argument for the god of the philosophers..
