The Answer To The God Question

Updated on March 24, 2012

Maybe more of a response than an answer

Does God exist? This is a question that has been asked countless times throughout the existence of our species and, despite such a question usually being asked as a result of mildly innocent curiosity, has caused more moments or extended periods of human intensity than possibly anything else . . . or at least anything else that appears so simple and straightforward.

Does God exist? I would certainly say it IS a straightforward question and not simply appearing to be so. However, there are many straightforward questions that continuously fail to inspire straightforward answers. In my opinion, it seems the more straightforward a question the more the one rendering the response is going to answer in a roundabout way as if he really doesn't know the answer and wants you to read as far down as possible. And of course I mean questions that require subjective answers. I don't mean to imply that the answer to "where should we have lunch?" should ever be complicated or roundabout. However, I know many who have made a spectacle of themselves in trying. People seldom ask complicated questions like "Do you think it's possible that we're living in a different universe than the one we think we're living in?" That I think that is because being tempted to ask that question frightens them. But all in all I would say the God question is a straightforward one.

Does God exist? Many would say you have to take it on faith. Well, faith never really worked for me. I need to have certainty. I've dealt with many a religious person in my life and I must say that mixing religion with certainty of God's existence is a very dangerous thing. Proceed with caution. My realizations of God have lead me away from religion . . . far, far away.

Does God exist? Many religions will say God exists. Some religions have even got a mighty bit testy about the subject in the past. But if God truly is Perfect Love then what exactly is the point in killing, torturing or even defaming and ridiculing another?

Does God exist? Yes. There, I said it. Yes, I am one of those people who have certainty. Not evidence or proof or even that much of an argument, mind you, but I do have certainty. Okay, let's look at the present broad view from the scientific perspective. (Please note: I am not a science part of the brain kind of a person.) We live in a solar system. The solar system is in the universe and its very likely that the universe is one of many universes comprising an omniverse . . . that's a BIG physical manifestation, there. And I mean BIG in the sense that the omniverse would be BIG if we could redfine BIG as more like (BIG)gazillion but even then it doesn't really seem to get the point across. My point here is that there's this gianormous physical creation here that we live in. What created it? Many would say "God created it." Faith or certainty involved, that is almost invariably your answer.

Does God exist? Atheists will tell you that God does not exist. They will even tell you that the omniverse was created out of thin air and it developed gradually into this gianormous thing and then began to gradually span out. It is because of this argument that I truly belive that atheists are the most miraculous beings. By their argument defining God as a non-existing non-entity, they not only create acknowledgement of God's existence but also make a decent argument for what defines God. Oh, it was 'created out of thin air' was it? Well now we have a scenario of non-physical energy creating physical matter. That non-physical energy (if indeed it did create that first cell that became our omniverse) is ultimately the source of our physical existence and is therefore God. Or at least in the way we humans have chosen to define God. When atheists create a godfigure, you know the jig is up. Almighty Thin Air will surely reward the atheists for their discovery, no matter how inadvertant.

Does God exist? Even if you take the Old Testament as fiction, the Koran as a hoax and every other holy book as a fanciful musing, then God still exists. Even if every witness to God is a fiction, then God still exists in that fiction. On the plane of imagination, but existing nonetheless.

Does God exist? Well, people exist. And let's look at people and their abilities. Not their creative abilities, but their Creative abilities. Let's say there's a town somewhere, it doesn't matter where, and the town survives entirely by spending the work day sending out good vibes to the rest of the world. Yes, the entire world. But it is a whole town, not just a handful of people doing this. They all meet in a meadow somewhere within the town limits and huddle together. They all physically connect together to gain a chain reaction of energy. Then, they send out their good vibes. While they are in this union and creating this energy their thoughts are one. They feel each other emotionally, spiritually, physically, mentally. They acheive this common goal and they act as one being. Then, at the end of the day the stress of concentrating so hard on all of the compassion and the focus on collective consciousness and such, well, it's a bit exhausting. So, on the off hours some people go out and party, some go to the library to do research, some engage in coital recreations and some just like being alone with their thoughts. Some keep their focus on their work and can't wait to get back in the collective mindset. Others, although equally dedicated to the work, try to get as far away from work as possible when they are not on the job. They may even have brief moments of doubt each night but still make it back the next morning, same time as everyone else. The emplacement (the meadow where they nest together that is) has an echolocation to bring them back anyway. To each individual, it is their duty and they will return no matter how much separation they have created while disunified.

Does God exist? My certainty tells me yes. The universe/omniverse exists because God is off-duty. So, enjoy the party. The real work starts when we're God again.

      The whole thing is actually not funny, you are right!

      To become so god delusional as to loose ones touch with reality to such a degree where some god from an outdated story book starts to fill in for reality instead, requires a serious mental deficiency, an emotional defect or both.

      It's not a laughing matter! You are quite right ... kind of sad, actually!

      Make fun of me if you want. But please do not make fun of my beliefs and my faith. My God is real.

      Dave has it all wrong! The basic question should be:

      "Why do silly people who have no understanding of nature or science want to see some man made god having created nature instead of first learn enough to KNOW how nature actually functions and how scientific thought differs in quality from religious BS?"

      All life forms are of natural origin - no gods required!

      Since we did gain a level of intellect which shows that natural processes can and do result in fully functional brains - the religionoid one being an example of a somewhat dysfunctional one - we now know, all our smart questions can be answered with good applied science. Only the stupid, religious questions will never be answered because nature has no time for silly god delusional games which are not focused at nature as our ultimate source!

      Jonathan: Does God exist? You bet he does. If he didn't exist, neither would you, brcause God created you spirit, soul and flesh along with everything else living and breathing including our planet earth.
