Is belief in the supernatural an intelligent person’s game?

Nothing that I know of, other than personal renderings or hear say, has ever been produced or provide to show the existence of a supernatural realm or entities. The ancients did not seem to think the supernatural was a reality. https://bigthink.com/videos/what-is-god-2-2

No entity, good or evil, have ever manifested itself in a provable way, even though some think god is Omni-present and that Satan was given the ability and power to deceive us all.

I think that those who believe in supernatural entities are being taken advantage of by fraudulent preachers who recognize our propensity of over imagination, which we all have, as shown in the Princess Alice experiments.

I can see some benefits in imaginary thinking to validate or refute ideas but that is about it.

Is belief or faith in the supernatural a worthy idea for us or is it a tool used by lying preachers intent on fleecing sheeple?

If there is no supernatural god, should we not seek a human leader or spiritual guide instead of idolizing imaginary supernatural gods that are demonstrably less moral than humans?

No, it is not. No matter how intelligent or decent a person may be, if they subscribe to Theism then their judgment can not be trusted.

If you believe in what are clearly myths, as literal events, no matter what your grades are or how high you have climbed the capitalist ladder of success, you can not be taken seriously.

Would you take seriously a politician who says 'I sold my soul to the devil' Or 'we're helping Lucifer'?

You can... I wouldn't.

If there is no Supernatural God, then a spiritual leader is pointless. A human leader would be for what, exactly?

I think the time is coming when those who reject God will indeed seek a human leader. Uncanny how a book you have no confidence records the words of one who saw this coming:-

John 5:43 King James Version (KJV)

43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

*you don’t have to continue in this folly GCB. “Losing face” (as if that matters, eternally speaking) repenting and believing the Gospel is such a release from the false cult of self.

Clear and accurate and I agree.

Spiritual thinking speaks to laws and rules to live life by.

You might have noted that you live by secular laws and rules that have clearly shown that they are superior to you religions laws.

Call that pointless if you want, but you cannot hide from the fact of the inferiority of your theistic laws.

If Yahweh is Jesus' father, then all who praise Yahweh are praising a genocidal son murdering prick of a god.

Is that what you are doing and why would you do such an insane and immoral thing?

Revelation 16:9

“And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.”

You can't even explain why you are doing what you are doing you pathetic piece of human garbage.

My ability to separate you from your favourite lines of attack would be like trying to prise a bone from the mouth of a cornered dog. I could try, but past experience with such situations show the exercise to be fruitless.

You have free will and can hold on to your chewy bone-like crusade of hate as long as you want to. On the other hand, as God sent his son to willingly give His life for your sins, you would do well to reconsider your rebellion against your maker.

What does that have to do with anything? You don't believe in Spirit but suggest a spiritual guide... WHY?

Maybe because of people's instinctive need for the Spiritual... your own, included.

That's not a bad thing. :)
Where have I denied Spirit? Where did you define that term?
Please do not waste my time correcting your lies.

Tell us what use our spirits have for the supernatural and fantasy world, which is good unless one is fool enough to believe it to be real.
