I feel that one of the athiests stronger arguements, is that the people who we trust to be receivers of Gods revelation, could very well be victims of hallucinations.
At first i thought that this is could be actually the case; but could it also be the case that the brain has specail mechanisms that could be activated due to great distress. What i am getting at here is, that God could in theory use our capacity to have hallucinations in order to project his messages.
I mean, this is just speculation, and i am aware that some people have terrible and quite hellish hucinations. But in theory, if we could send signals or insert artificail memories or images in to the brain, we might be able to project through the recipient an artificail hallucination, using the brains ability to project the illusion of 3 dimensional imagry into the real world. Given that possibility, one can see a positive use for hallucinations in terms of communication; and in actual fact God may have given us this ability for a reason, rather then it just being a brain going hay-wire
Just a thought. I don’t actually think its possible that the history of Isreal relationship with God, and all the miracles, could be all hallucinations.
