There are many religious types who profoundly believe in God. So I ask, what is the purpose of this God? Where did he come from? God himself must have been created in some way? Did he create himself? If so, how and why? Will his purpose ever be fulfilled and if so will he destroy himself once it is reached? If God is all powerful he must be able to fulfill himself. If this is true, does God continue to create his own purpose for "being" in order to give himself a reason to exist?
You might spend some time reading back threads of the religious forum to get some other answers from hubbers on this point. We have been through extensive issues. Check it out and then see if you want more!!
I see two fundamental assumptions in your question which are flawed.
1. God must have been created.
2. Things need a reason or purpose in order to exist.
or, even more flawed, but seeming to underlie both 1 and 2
3. Things happen for a reason, ie they are caused by something.
See if you can reframe your question without making these three assumptions. If you can, there is a possibility of a sensible answer.
Thanks for the response. First, I wouldn't say my assumptions are flawed. They are only assumptions. The whole premise of God is an assumption. The idea of things being "created" or "having purpose" are human ideas. And most people can relate or reason within this context that is why I provided it with the base of my assumption. Are whole way of making decisions and reasoning are based on the assumption of cause and purpose, are they not?
So, let us step back a level further, Let us assume God and everything he created does not have any reason or purpose. Then what can possibly be a "sensible answer". I myself believe human beings (in our present state) are not capable of knowing the answer because we are limited in our reasoning. But if possible what would be a sensible answer if there was not "cause" or "purpose"?
Actually to assume there is an "sensible answer" can also be said to be a false assumption because again, "an answer" = "a reason".
Answer "A solution, as to a problem.", "To serve the purpose; suffice:"
So perhaps there is no "sensible answer". And those following "God" are following something which represents no purpose.
I must add, we can not rule out the possibility that God was created and there is a purpose for his existence. Do you agree?
He doesn't have the existence as human.I simply think if He was created by someone then
His creator couldbe God nor does He.But there is no such thing.
Yes, we can't really rule anything out.
God may well have been created by the Flying Spaghetti Monster as a cautionary tale, for example.
In this way that monster couldbe more powerful than God and we shouild consider that monster a God.
But of course!
The Flying Spaghetti Monster IS a God.
More than A God, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is THE God!

Just because there is a "monster" that is more powerful than God does not make him God. I could b e a King of my kingdom but there could be a ruler over me.
Exactly! For what we know God could be EXACTLY what is described in the modern Christian Bible.
The entire foundation of modern science is founded on that third "assumption", I dare hope he not reframe his question without making that assumption, lest he all of a sudden start seriously doubting the efficacy of the natural sciences.
What is God's Purpose?
This is a crucial question which has not been asnwered by any scripture.
I asked God and he said " i felt like it."
You cannot create God-God is.
His purpose shall be fulfilled.
Its all a big joke. :lol
Again, this reiterates my initial question. If God can do just about anything, and his has some sort of objective or purpose on his mind, why can't he just will it and be done with it? Wouldn't he get bored being able to do anything he wished? To achieve any goals we wanted at any time?
To achieve any goals we wanted at any time? There is allways a hurdle to cross which onece you have you become more intelligent,a better person a more advanced soul.
You are God and you have willed yourself into being including the universe.It is the ultimate sense of humour once you can comprehend it.
God is also beyond any logic we know. Simply beyond, so do not try and be intellectual with God or you will miss out.
Darn, to eternal irrationality I must go (but because I missed out not because I believed).
Yea - I did it all. But now I forgot, so probably do it all again.
Yea we did it all before. But I can't remember, so let's do it again. Who's going to go back through all that. Why should new
people be prohibited from doing what old one's already done.
Not going to much to say then is there.

If humans had never been created or evolved, would there still be a god?Assume all else remains as it is today. The only difference is it came to be this way without human beings or any other being capable of conceptualizing god having ever existed.

I was wondering. It seems we have 2 choices. Do what God tells us and go to heaven. Or act against his word and go to the Devil's hell? OK, so what if I do not want any part of any of it? I just want to live my life peacefully without worrying about it? And when I die...
