God seems to talk a lot in the Bible. At times he seems to go on and on and not shut up.
When did He stop talking? Was it just before we had recording technologies like tape cassettes, or film cameras, or is there a passage in the Bible that explains why he doesn't chat anymore?

Ok. Ask him something for me, just to verify it's him: What's my greatest fear?

funkmasterfreaky - Thanks. Your openess allows me to communicate with you as if we were face to face. Your answer is what I was looking for; I wanted to know how you believe you talk to God.
One thing I'd like to say is that I think you underestimate your own strengh and character, and may even neglect to acknowledge those around you. Don't give God all the praise all the time.
gene - You sound like an aggressive, angry person. Are you truly happy at all?

This is why I give God all the credit because I recognize that he has just given me stewardship over my body and possessions. When this body dies my body will be returned to the earth and my possessions redistributed as the Lord would see fit.
I have to say that really sounds awful. It sounds like slavery to be honest.
I have pride in my individuality - that my being is unique. I would rather just die than let some-one/thing claim ownership of me.
I'm sorry FMF, but I can see no joy in that particular belief whatsoever.

Do you feel the same awe when looking at an anus or ear wax? I'm sure there are many of your Gods creations that don't have quite the same affect on you.
Personally, the reason I feel awe at such wonders as mountains is because of their sheer size and scale. But, if they were cuboid, I'd be more inclined to think they were supernaturally created...
