    How do I find God?

    I think the popular phrase 'find God' is misleading, and so a number of people here have made missing God jokes... one perhaps inadvertently coming close to the truth. Why would we have to find a God whose influence is everywhere?

    The answer is we don't have to find him. We have to recognize him. By way of a analogy:

    Do you infer that human kind is only able to recognize themselves, each trying to be more that his fellow in any way possible ? Invent religion, then you can get a someone to testify on your behalf. Invent capitalism, then you can use your stuff as a gauge. I'm thinking we may be mentally ill.

    Having been in many religions, and going in search of others, even learning new languages to do it, I only hope that I'm not blinded by his creation.
