Can we see Creator-God?

    I hear often in these forums; people ask to show the Creator-God.

    Can we see everything with our naked eyes?
    If we can’t see; then why ask for it?

    I don’t think it is a reasonable demand.

      Perhaps seeing is not always with the eyes.

        Then what they actually mean precisely?

      Well we can not see him until we go to heaven. When we go to heaven we will see our father, The Lord (God). Here on Earth God speaks to us in mysterious ways. You will see him if you go to heaven.

      You can't see with your "naked eyes" the flu virus that is attacking your immune system and making you sick, or the molecules of nitrogen/oxygen that make up the atmosphere you breathe and when they move around; you feel the wind, or the packets of energy moving through a conductor when it powers your electrical appliances.

      No, these things cannot be seen with the "naked eye" yet they can be observed, detected and measured quite accurately with instruments that expand and accentuate the ability and capacity of the naked eye.

      In regards to the existence of these examples, we wouldn't have many of the conveniences science has provided us if it didn't make a reasonable demand. So, we make a reasonable demand for believers to produce their gods.

      The wait continues, unabated. smile

      Yes! But we need that perfect silence of the questioning mind to see the God

    You can't see the wind, but you can feel it on your face and see the trees blowing.....

      These are attributes of air; so one knows a thing from its attributes.

      Do you mean asking to see the Creator-God is asking his attribues?

      Have I understood you correctly? Please

    Perhaps that is one way to put it.  If you liken it to wind, you can't see it.  Just like you can't see God.  But you know the wind is blowing because you feel it on your face, like you know God is present eg. when you have experienced healing, or his power in other ways.

      There is a difference though: "experiencing God" happens inside your head and is hard to prove to others. With wind we can, at least, build a device that demonstrates to all observers that the wind is blowing.

        Very true, like a subjective experience rather than the objective observation.  I will have to think about this, because I see God in other things, like creation that are explainable other ways so this is still subjective.  I need to perhaps come up with an objective observation for such an argument.  There may be none......

        If I experience the movement of a particular music, it is a real experience, although I can not share it with anyone else, nor can i guarantee that hearing the same music will create a like experience in you. None the less, the experience existed. The inability to prove to you that it existed is impossible. We are neither proving nor disproving - Experience is owned. I can not remove it from me and give it to you and until I can, proof will not exist.

          I could not understand you fully. Will you paraphrase your view point for me , please?

            I will try exceedingly.

            1) An experience is real to the recipient, therfore, it exist to everyone sharing the same experience.
            2) It does not exist to those who have not experienced it.
            3) existence and non-existence are relative to experience. An taste of an apple is known only to those who experience the apple. Unless you, yourself taste it, I can not give you the taste.
            4) God is known through experience.
            5) Experience is proof only to the owner of the experience, therefore
            6) unless I can remove (the experience) from myself I can not give it to you, therefore, the proof is within me and others with the same experience.

            Have you ever told a funny story and no one laughed? Did you say, "I guess you had to be there". I can tell you of my experience, but, it will always be mine.

    My husband has the same problem. Unfortunately he doesn't realize it - especially after a few beers and the availability of a karaoke machine and an audience.

      i remember being in the ladies one party we went to and i heard someone attempting to sing a Neil Young song..... It was dreadful, and i love Neil Young.  Imagine when i walked in and saw it was my darling husband.... I walked up to him on the stage and handed the microphone back to a family member.  Everyone still talks about it, they think i showed myself up, .......   i had to do it, for the sake of Neil Young......

    Can we see Creator-God?

    We cannot see things far away or too close from our eyes. We cannot see things too large or too small. We should not see things which could damage our eyesight .

    Why should one insist on seeing the Creator-God Allah YHWH?

      Yes; Moses saw Him in a sense; but the Jews who wanted to see Him could not see Him when they were jolted by His power.
