Black Sabbath says so. Which is good, because that means Ozzy is still alive.

Certainly there are far better threads to argue about the oddities of the verbiage used in ICANT's special genesis and a "god is dead" thread is not that place.

The physical body He walked around here on earth is dead. It died when His Spirit left that body on the cross when He said: "it is finished".
Then it is erroneous to say "god died for you" since the jesus body was just a vehicle. Death for this god character never happened. Thanks for the clarification.
But how do you expect to understand how God could produce eternal life for anyone who believes and trusts in what He did at Calvary
Any god worth it's salt doesn't require some deep meditation or wonky interpretation in order to understand his message of "hey, here I am, you guys are killing me and in doing so I wipe all sin from earth and forgive you", but in actuality that doesn't work because if this avatar did do this, it failed miserably and wasted it's time.
if you can not understand how He caused the heavens and the earth to exist?
"poof, magic" is how he did it, right? Not very hard to understand how you guys claim he did it. Your book spends all of what, like a page or two describing the process? And yet you spend how many pages trying to explain it? And it takes you so much effort because your reading is so different from everyone else. Color me unimpressed.
Besides, this thread is not about genesis and you ought to take that problem up with your bible thumping brethren as I could care less which wrong version you read: all of them are baloney (balogna jsut doesn't look right here). Any god that requires you to go through a process of "ok, in order to understand THIS, you need to dig deeply in to this, but in order to grasp that, you need to read this which wasn't written until 100 years later". Not worth my time, sorry.
rAmen, pasta be upon you.

Can you try that again? Only this time with less gobbledy-gook? I understood nothing you wrote. But if that's what it takes to have a conversation with you (and it obviously is), I have no interest and bid this conversation farewell.
