Some say none.
Some say one.
Some say many.
I go with the second option.
Why would you privilege any one out of these three?
I have no short answer for that.
Can I say it like a schoolboy would?
"Just because!" :
Some of my hubs will give some longer answers.
There lies one third of the world's problem. No offence, but I thought it's better to speak the truth.
No, not really.
I think your quick judgment of me, without knowing anything about me, contributes to the problem.
By suggesting I am part of 1/3rd the problem by my choice of the three options.
I said 'There lies one third of the world's problem'. Where is your name there?
Where lies the problem?
No name. Sorry if i misread your comment.
Well, from the point of view of evidence, all of those three options are equal. There is no reason to privilege any one of them. We simply don't know how the world/universe came into being.
The problem is that many people are imagining possibilities, and mistakenly thinking them to be true. It's a universal problem. And perhaps not easily cured.
To give you a slightly longer answer than "Just because", my reason for choosing "one God" is as follows.
(If a) God existes, He would have certain traits that "qualify" Him as such. (IE, creator.)
More than one God is foolishness, since many /multiple gods would not qualify. (Who's who?)
No God leaves the existence of, and creation of everything, as uncaused. Clearly, illogical, unreasonable. (Where did it all come from?)
You have done so many calculations over something which no one can establish with evidence, because there is no evidence, as far as I have knowledge.
You are calculating over the existence of a ghost (something imaginary). It were so much lovelier had you invested that energy to understand the universe, and its origins. We could shake the world.
No, I haven't done calculations.
I have merely investigated the evidence, and made "my" choice of which option I hold to.
I have a life to live, and it's purpose was not to study the universe (as a profession), but I am making a difference in "my world".
Now, I'm touching yours as well.
I am happy with that. If there is more before me, I am happy to embrace that also.
Well, I meant understanding the world and the universe. The world is a part of the universe.
Anyway, if you are willing to share, then I am interested to get to know what evidence/evidences have you studied? I have an open mind, and I am not biased. I have no preconception that God/gods do not exist. That's a possibility, of course.
Sorry, but there are many gods purported to exist that don't have that trait nor has there been any kind of "standard" set for gods to possess such a trait.
Sorry, but there are religions that possess multiple gods. It is merely your opinion that it is foolishness to consider more than one.
Sorry, everything came about on it's own, that's what the evidence suggests. It looks like your reasons failed.
There is only one Source.
Creation is effortless. Just look at how easy it was when Peter stepped out of his storm-tossed boat onto the unsettled Sea of Galilee. And then he became "reasonable" again and sank.
