    Do you ever wonder who/what made God?

    I have always been told that God created the heavens and the universe. But where did God come from? How is it that we are even here?

    Well I actually asked God himself that question.

    I know God created man as well as the heavens and earth.

    However I think God was always a spirit somewhere that was meant to be.

    When it comes to the unknown spiritual world one never questions it, as it just proposes more questions than answers. You just have to have faith.

      Great answer. My faith is unwavering I just love the confused feeling I get when I think of that. It's almost as if that feeling is by design to give people free agency to believe

      well if you dont have faith then everything will be confusing. We all fall at points in our lives. But there is no use in trying to decode this, it confuses us more, hence why I say do not ask questions, it poses more unanswered ones right

      In his book "The God Delusion", Richard Dawkins says: "Once they indulge in faith — belief without evidence — they tend to give up reason."

    Mankind, all forms of god/religion are man made.

      That's a good opinion I guess. I'm sure there are a lot of people who believe that.

      phtech, facts don’t require people’s belief in them. The fact of the matter is, if there were no religious “documents,” then there would be no “evidence” of any religion/deity, ever…since supernatural phenomena are not supported by Science.

      There's no way to prove the Big Bang theory either without documents written by man. People who say they can prove it are the same as religious fanatics in the sense that they make people believe in something they will never see. No one really knows

      ChristopherJRexposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      We do really know, because we can find evidence of it (not just from one source, but from multiple, independent sources)...there is no significant evidence regarding supernatural phenomena.  Learn about the scientific method or read a Science book.

      So if you believe everything you read in a science book, why is it so wrong for me to believe the bible? There's no difference.

      ChristopherJRexposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Like I said, the scientific method discusses repeatable results…if you “doubt” something in a Science book, you could always test it…finding that >95% of all of your “attempts” to repeat any of those experiments support the same conclusions.  smile

      If say evolution really happened, how come monkeys haven't turned into us yet? I think there is something way more powerful than the universe controlling what happens down here.

      See that's what so many people have a hard time believing. But I mean that can sound as far-fetched as the big bang theory.

      phtech, the Big Bang Theory isn't "far-fetched"...it makes sense once you understand the physics behind it. At the quantum level, things can arise spontaneously & inflate: http://christopherjrex.hubpages.com/hub … -Require-M

      phtechposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I'm saying that to a person who has been taught nothing about it, the Big Bang theory sounds like someone is telling a fictional story. The same way some people view religious books/stories before they are educated to them.

    6. ChristopherJRex profile image92
      ChristopherJRexposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, the critical difference being, of course, that the Big Bang Theory heavily relies upon facts.  You can’t consider religious books/stories to be educational any more than Grimm’s Fairy Tales.  Stories aren’t adequate substitutes for Science.

    7. phtech profile image82
      phtechposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      What facts does it rely on? No one saw it happen.

    8. ChristopherJRex profile image92
      ChristopherJRexposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      So, by your logic, if a tree falls in a woods and nobody sees it, there’s no way to prove it fell?  You can, in fact, collect enough evidence (on cosmic background radiation, galaxy direction/speed, etc.) to construct and support the Big Bang Theory.

      Rayne123posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Well if a tree falls and you didn't see it fall then it doesn't matter does it, why would you want to prove it. You wouldn't even have known if there was a tree there to fall. however if you are talking about a fallen tree laying there, once again it

      I'm not trying to force my religious views on anyone, I'm simply trying to invoke intelligent conversation about this topic. What if the Big Bang theory is how God created the universe and you are proving the existence of God.

      But that means that there was time when there was nothing, no god, no universe just empty space but you need some initiation to start something, If there was nothing then what initiated it? there has to be a creator and creation. u can't create yours

    If someone or something made God then He would not be an eternal being because that would require Him to have both a beginning and and end.

      to finish my falling tree analogy, if we see it laying there we know it fell somehow so what does it matter right. whey do you have to prove it, we dont

    That's blasphemy at its worst! LOL. I don't need to wonder because Sir Bertrand Russell already answered that question in "Why I'm Not a Christian', before I could even ask. He said that if no one created God, why can't we also say that no one created the Universe? The Buddha also believe that the Universe has always existed. To me, God is a soul, just like any others. Just that His soul is highly exalted... ooophhhs, that's another blasphemy!!! See, by asking your blasphemous question, you also make me blasphemous, LOL.

      How is it a blasphemous question if you believe that he wasn't the only creator?

    Dear Phtech,

    Great question.  I think of it this way now a days.  God has always been and always will be in existence.  God is a force and an intelligence that we cannot comprehend. 

    Bear with me.  George Lucas created Star Wars (great movie). He in his mind created all the characters (maybe with some suggestions from other ok), but he basically had a vision that came to be in the movies. 

    God is supposed to be all knowing, all powerful, and everywhere.  Try to imagine what a being/force or entity could create with those attributes.  God would be able to create us quite easily as well as all the other millions of life forms, planets, stars, galaxies and inter dimensions. 

    It hurts my head to think about it.  Can you imagine God created the smallest grain of sand up to the largest Galactic body. 

    How we are here is because we are part and parcel of GOD.  (4.35 Bhavad-gita as it is).  Like the planet is part of our solar system as well as part of God, we are also part of the planet and solar system as well as part of God.  The thing that makes it so hard to understand that we are all part of God is because of the appearance of separation to to our egos.

    Another way to think about it is that there are billions of cells in the body that come together to make up the human body.  The cells reproduce and carry out their functions daily as we do. The cells are all unique as we are yet they are part of the whole as we are a mere part of existence.

    I hope this helps best wishes

      "God is supposed to be all knowing, all powerful, and everywhere" and yet, when disasters happen, we instantaneously blame Satan for these calamities. Satan, to me, will always be the fall guy. Is it fair?

      Rayne123posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Actually there is no one to blame but ourselves. Most people actually blame God, however God gave us the tools to fix the world and we used them for our own mass destruction. So God says you want to destroy the world, you will fall in your own trap

      Rayne123, you said: "God gave us the tools to fix the world." Really? Who sent the Great Flood during Noah's time? If God had given us the tools, are you then saying that scientific discoveries of today should have been made long ago?

    5. phtech profile image82
      phtechposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I think all scientific discoveries are given to us by God in his time. Think about it though, how did multiple civilizations start irrigating, farming, and giving up being nomads at virtually the same time. We know they didn't have any way of

    Sorry, as I was saying, they didn't have any way to communicate over such long distances. So how is it that they advanced in agriculture at about the same time? I think there was a little help from a supreme being. This is only my opinion though.

    I am going to drop some knowledge.
    the limitation/rule of time is for us, its an illusion.
    its beyond our limit to think past that, time is made to make the world work.
    god don't follow that rule.
    Any Questions?
