If God created everything ( sounds reasonable - something cant be made from nothing) then where did God come from? Yes I understand the answer of Alpha & Omega and God is outside the illusion of time and all that but just wondering if theists out there have some ideas.

Ah - your answer intrigued me so I googled it and found this: http://www.peterkreeft.com/topics-more/20_argument...
Yes - in fact ALL gods and goddesses are fictional characters from mythology. Mythology originated as cultural storytelling and ritual to encourage social cohesion among the tribe. To be religious now days is to misunderstand the meaning of metaphor.
Can you refer me to a verse in the Bible that states that the Israelites created God.
How can you ask such a question? Are you inferring the Judea-Christian god is not a Jewish god? You cannot rewrite history my friend.
mistical is supposed to be mystical correct?
You should put link to hub here because it is relevant. It OK to put hub links in answers but not in forums.
Hi ptosis, thanks for letting me know that we are allowed to put a link in our answers, this is the link, (God exists because life exists) it seems to me that it is not going to work.
If just put in the short url in answer I think it auto links it but does not work in comments.
With respect, I feel like a sober person listening to the ramblings of a drunk when I read that! We can't understand god, we can't prove his existence, we can't even agree what s/he is - er...therefore we must believe. What are you saying?!
stuff4kids, jthomp is speaking from his Christian beliefs based on the Bible. Scripture states that God is eternal and is the one who proves Himself to us. You are right, we cannot prove His existence, but there is evidence of Him.
Thank you Planksand nails! Stuff.... it is very apparent that you have not set foot inside of a church or read any of God's word in the Bible. You could also use a lesson in couth.
I like that stuff4kids, I think that describes it wonderfully. Great job. I bet that is very much how you must feel. I bet it is just as frustration at it's peak. I cannot even imagine living in a world where I could not understand faith and belief.
I agree that unable to understand because outside experienced reality and that's why I'm agnostic. I know I don't know.
says the person who has a hub titled "Top Ten Fun Facts About Toilet Paper" You'd think someone like that would be more tolerant.
