If God created the universe, what was God doing before he created the universe? Thoughts?
I recently watched the documentary The Unbelievers where the reknowned Atheist, Richard Dawkins posed this question.
Richard Dawkins asks STUPID questions! He can't disprove the existence of God, so he asks STUPID questions. If you don't believe in GOD, what do you care what he was doing before he created the universe. If you do believe in GOD, since He is GOD, he was DOING anything he darn well wanted to do.
JR--I have always thought that the stupid question was the one not asked. How do we learn if questions are labeled stupid by such as you or by others?
Sorry I wasn't politically correct. But when a confirmed atheist asks a question about a God he doesn't believe in, and about a period of time that is unknowable - it is in fact a STUPID question that merely is posed to puff up his ego.
So the question would be more valid from someone who does believe in god than from someone who doesn't? What sense does that make?
I don't think it's stupid at all. As a very open-minded agnostic atheist, I LOVE thinking about this kind of stuff. I want to put the pieces together whether they fit into my beliefs or not. So I enjoy new questions that call for insightful answers.
At some point you must explain to me what an agnostic atheist is. It sounds like being just a little bit pregnant.
He was consulting a physicist and a contractor, but was having problems with raw materials.
I have another question for you that was posed some years ago. If Jesus is god who became man and then when he was killed by man, went back to being a god, what precisely did he give up or sacrifice?
Well before the creation of the universe there would not have been time. Time and space would have been created simultaneously. So this question is really unanswerable.
OMG! Is it not most obvious?
God or Dog (backwards) was significantly busy "rolling the dice!"
I'd really like to ask Richard Dawkins exactly "how" did he realise the self to be nothing, because he must have realised it somehow to come out with the BS that he comes out with..Nothing can't realise it's nothing it's as simple as that, & saying it's liberating when you realise your nothing or god is a totally backwards retarded thing to say..Also why is he still here if it's all for nothing, so for me their all BS er's who've realised nothing at all..I mean just asking that question is stupidity itself, because how tf would we know what god was doing (if god exists) before he created the universe?lol..It's a nothing question that can't ever be answered or proved, & they only ask it because they have zero evidence themselves. :-)
The universe consists of space, time, energy and mass (STEM). Time was one of those creations. Therefore, there was no "before."
God is not part of the time stream, but outside of it. Therefore, it is more accurate to say that God is timeless instead of immortal.

If God created the universe, then who created God? Who was before that?I hear that God created the universe, us, etc. But what existed before that? And before that? God couldn't have been around forever. There had to be a beginning. But what was that...

This god so many people insist is real sounds like a complex thing. Complex things don't just spring out of nowhere or assemble themselves, so it was probably created by a higher form, because nothing complex can exist without a creator, or so you tell me.Where does it end? Sooner or...

In a forum, I asked a question: Why God created atheists? Now I ask, why man created God?

Buddhism and Christianity are two of major religions. They both have great and wise scriptures, which teach our earthly people many lessons. However, there has only been one universe, who created it?I am not quite sure that I can ask this question, but I am always curious how religious people would...
