Is it a conflict of interest if an atheist believes that he is (G)god?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (17720points) December 27th, 2015

Can I say that I believe in God without telling people that I am God or a god? Would that work?

Ok I will say it, mighty confusing question, just what are you asking?????
You believe in God, because you feel you are a God, but don’t want people to know??
Maybe save the last of the spiked eggnog for new years ok?

I think that claiming to be a god will have the opposite effect on your relationships with christians.

So you figured why not try out a God?
You may want to set the bar a touch lower.

Yes, because atheists don’t believe that god/s exist. You can’t claim to be something you don’t even think is there.

If the believer who believes they’re God believes that the believer doesn’t exist, then the believer won’t believe that there’s a conflict of interest. ;-p

You can tell people you believe in God, if you do not qualify it by saying you believe in God because you are God. They will believe you are speaking of the real deal, once they discover you are speaking of yourself, they may silently consider you a crackpot, or request a grand miracle you better be prepared to preform, oh, you better have command over death because if someone sneaks up and caps you just to see if you will take your life up again, you don’t want to remain dead.

The question is illogical. Atheists don’t believe in God, so couldn’t believe that they themselves were God.

Let’s follow the logic.

You say you don’t believe that God exists.
You also say that you are God.
Therefore you do not believe that you exist.
If you don’t exist then you can’t believe in God.

Works just fine.
Apologies to Descartes for mangling his reasoning.
