Response: So your saying that this type of thought is subjective and thats why you believe this right?
>And often claims at "objectivity" are

Response: OK follow you so far, but objective claims are often times truth claim which are undeniable.
>Your view of God is objective
>TO YOU. It isn't your

Response: Actually the based on truth claims. Just because some people disagree with me does'nt knock there validity. And just because I accept it does'nt make it true also.

Therefore when considering
>every single person on the
>planet, your view of God
>IS SUBJECTIVE to only a
>certain number of people as
>MILLIONS of people do not
>accept that view of being

Response: A majority count does'nt make something true. The truth is the truth whether we believe it or not. Are you familiar with first principle's?
