God is a mechanism for coping with cognitive dissonance.

Dunno that I agree very much.

Belief in god seems to be a cause of cognitive dissonance from what I've seen.

When god is wearing his Jesus suit he/she/it is a liar.

Why Wont God Heal Amputees Wrote:The Bible clearly promises that God answers prayers. For example, in Mark 11:24 Jesus says, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." And billions of Christians believe these promises. You can find thousands of books, magazine articles and Web sites talking about the power of prayer. According to believers, God is answering millions of their prayers every day.

So what should happen if we pray to God to restore amputated limbs? Clearly, if God is real, limbs should regenerate through prayer. In reality, they do not.

Why not? Because God is imaginary. Notice that there is zero ambiguity in this situation. There is only one way for a limb to regenerate through prayer: God must exist and God must answer prayers. What we find is that whenever we create a unambiguous situation like this and look at the results of prayer, prayer never works. God never "answers prayers" if there is no possibility of coincidence.

Can anybody delegate an authority they don't have?
Was anybody born with innate authority over anybody else?
Then how did authority nobody had get delegated to those who call themselves government?

Show me my personally signed contract wherein I consented to be governed.

My amputated limb doesn't regrow no matter how much I pray. But God, so obviously His wisdom is beyond my ability to comprehend. Praise God.

RE: God.
Is "God" (the label for the belief) a production of cognitive dissonance-- or --rather, is it the belief that produces/results in it; a belief most typically resulting from fear/s, identity/tribalism/socialism┬╣ seeking, etc?

Evidence in support of the OP Statemeant (pronounced statement), OPiE?

Is it voluntary? (because if it isn't, what inherently is it?)
And can it be voluntary, if there's indoctrination, intimidation, coercion, threats & initiation of violence?
[not to be confused with asking: can it be said to be "voluntary" even when such is present.?]

Uh. Logically contradictory events are not refuted but rather are accepted as non- contradictory via the claim that God must be able to explain the unexplainable because, well... because. Therefore God.

Uh. Thanks for laying out your agreement with me.? Huh?

How is it not the "logically contradictory events" that is the equal/production of cognitive dissonance? (for which "God" aka belief, of an infantile order, logically resolves it.?┬╣)

Perhaps you could give some specific examples upon which you're founding your proposal? Skeptical

Almost any claim that includes the word God...

God is great.
God is all loving.
God heard my prayers. (I especially like this one when it refers to a person surviving some horrendous tragedy where all of the other people were killed or hideously maimed. Yep. God heard your prayers and because he's all loving he proved his love for you by torturing all of those others to reinforce that great love. Praise be unto him. )

You don't really want me to go on, do you?

Take any set of conditions where anyone capable of rational analysis would go WHAT THE FUCK, MAN? Throw God into the equation and all of a sudden all rational thought is dispensed with and it's, praise be to Him, life is Good, God is wonderful.

Hence: mechanism for dealing with cognitive dissonance.
