A hypothetical question submitted for your consideration.
No. On the level of form, only the devil would have footprints, being the maker of feet.
God is formless...has no feet...makes no feet.
Here's another way to look at it. The devil makes all form, and hides in it. It considers the body it's home. So all footprints are of the devil.
God would not create anything with such limitations as bodies or feet because it is unloving.
But for the footbound, the works of the devil are ascribed to "God". So there is this substitution concept happening. Some see that this "God" is rather nasty, but think nothing of it, as long as there is a "devil" lurking somewhere in time and space who's evil seems to make "God's" evil look good by comparison.
I was making a metaphorical reference.
Its a trick question from an unbeleiver!
The flying spaghetti monster leaves no footprints!
Chris Angel (Mindfreak) shows how "psychics" defraud people by getting them to believe their bullshit. People go out of their way to connect the dots to make it work for them. Justifying religious beliefs is no different.
Metaphorically speaking, no.
The closest thing to a "footprint" that even resembles the presence of God in this world is what I would call a "miracle". Even then, a miracle is just a reflection of God's love.
At the level of feeling, there is also not really a comparison...not to those who have experienced actual joy. Joy can be "tracked" however, if you are looking for the path to God.
Substitution is the devil's constitution. But a comedy club cannot break the glass ceiling upon the world's joy. Superciliousness is allowed, but is no substitute for joy.
Perhaps you are asking if miracles resemble magic...or psychic phenomena, ala Chris Angel?
people in search of faith long for a higher truth than what some egotisical, wingbag has to offer ..
yes, we understand your view of faith and reglion does not go beyond fairy tales, santa claus and speghetti monsters......... FOR CHRIST SAKES ....... WE UNDERSTAND THAT
No. He demonstrated how people who want to believe something badly enough will suspend their critical thinking cognitive faculties in order to connect the dots and make it so. People who want something badly enough can be had. Either by themselves or by others. Was that not clear to you, my lord?
