May not be the right forum. But I have heard this a lot lately from some very spiritual people. And actually recently found it in a philosophical book by Deepak Chopra. Basically stating that we are our own god. Or I believe someone pointed to their head when asked about god.

It kind of makes more sense than a lot of other claims. To say that we are our own creator, so in essence we are god, our own god.

Is this something that is a popular belief or am I just coincidentally seeing this? I am really interested to hear what others have come to believe.

The Mormons believe that when they die they get to be god fo other worlds.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Literality a god or a figure of speech?

As an atheist, I'm the most important being in my world, some have taken this to calling themselves a god but not in the sense of magical powers.

No but you are the highest species on this planet.  Sort of a God over the other critters.

Walk up to a bear and tell it you're it's god. See what happens. ;)

lol - but, but isn't a God supposed to be wise? :whistle:

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

In pantheism god is everything, so we are god along with everything else, rocks, kittycats, dogs, birds.... As above, so below.

It is stated through Christianity that god believes that all people are equal and created in his image.. you tell me. if your your own god.. Cause I dont think "god" was joking...

As stated many a times in many ah religions.

Seriously though. Where do people get these crazy accusations from.. Its obvious man. We are our own gods.. God teaches us the righteous path cause hes all knowing.. And its what helps us formulate what and who we are.. Its that simple.

It says I am a God underneath my avatar, and my signature says I am a God. As I believe everything I see online, then it must be true that I am a God. Actually it seems that I am not simply a god, I am the God. Very nice :D
Hmmm, I also appear to be dead, but better being a dead God than a living mortal...

Yes you are God.

But to understand why you'd need to do the research to discover why reality is 100% subjective.

no one likes you pharaoh!!! You are no god. Simply an image to pertain OF god. douche :P, making my point through aspiration. What more do you have to say oh great reader of the symbols.. whether against or With the odds of having the head or mind, or possibly even pertain you brain into the equation for equitable contemplation.

See Korey, We All know what were talking bout :P
