This is you.  And you aren't harmless.

1. Consistent egotism ... yes, I am a demi-god and so are you.  Not better than others, simply unequal, because ... we are unequal.

2. Behavioral chaos ... follows impulse and instincts ... that is how I post.

3. Insincerity ... but I am very sincere in my postings (aside from jokes and satire).

4. Parasitic lifestyle ... I worked as a government contractor for 32 years.  But I also give to others.

5. Disgust threshold ... I don't like horror movies.  But I enjoy war games.

6. Don't like looking people in the eyes.

7. I don't enjoy being around upset people.  Don't usually want to be involved in other people's problems.

Moral .. no two psychopaths are alike ;-9

Nah, I'm only a 64th god - a hemidemisemigod.

More like buddhist masters.  Takes one to know one.  If you think you are one, and you are not, then you are deluded.  So sane people know sane people, but self examination is ... marginal.

"I am" in Johannine Gospel, claiming to be G-d, not demi-god.

Have you really contemplated "demi-god"?  How could there be half of omnipotence?

More literalism.  Metaphor, simile etc don't exist.  Nuance is ... nonexistent.

Yes, it has taken me 60+ years to understand this concept.  And that puts the kibosh on atheism for me.

Actually, I've always thought that you were "not an atheist" only because you couldn't truly imagine the universe existing without you in it.

If you can imagine the universe, without yourself, then you are psycho.  That is a self contradictory (literally) position.  And this isn't a half-full/half-empty choice.  Basically it is a transcendent claim, not immanent.

I can imagine a universe with no humans.  How is that a good thing?  How is that different than imagining that there are unicorns in it.

I can imagine a universe with now humans.  How is that a good thing?  How is that different than imagining that there are unicorns in it.

I imagine my death after life as "a book half read" or something like that.  You really CAN'T conceive of true death, can you?  I have no problem with it.  Its like you were a swatted fly or stomped ant.  Nothing, no future thoughts, no "somewhere to exist afterwards", "a cessation of existence", "you aren't around anymore", etc....

You really don't get it, do you?
