Who or what is god?
What is god to you? Is god the creator of the universe and us, the “Alpha and the Omega”. Let’s just say this “god” created everything and is so great, why would he pay any attention to us? There are hundreds of billions of other galaxies out there.
We are but a spec in our galaxy but an atom compared to the universe.
I don’t believe in personal god(s) of mainstream religion because of the horrible olds that “god” made this universe than only pay attention to a small planet. Sending his only son down to free us from our sins? Seriously, think and try to visualize the billions of galaxies (Yeah, Billions) than try to back up the fact that we are anything special?
I believe that if “god” created us than he is but a creation of a greater “god” and his/her/it’s “god” is a creation to another “god”.
You can’t just say “god” has always existed and will always exist because nothing last for ever, there is always a beginning and an ending for everything.
I believe our god is the universe it self because that is what truly created us. And whoever created the universe isn’t our god because he/she/it didn’t make us.
Open your mind, ask questions, and be intellectual.

"Be Still, And Know That I Am God" ( Psalm 46:10)
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.” (James 4:7-8)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.(John 14:6)

I understand your reasoning - I am also a very logical person.
I dare you however to read up a bit on the facts of what happenend just over 2000 years ago, when Jesus was crucified. Based on the odds of the facts and how often these have been recorded, by different people, some not even Christians, then I have to accept that God is an amazing God and cares so much for us. Maybe the universe and all its galaxies (of which we barely understand anything) was made so big as this was God's way of showing us just how special it is that he pays us personal attention, and of his great awesomeness.
Your comment on beginning and end is based on human understanding. We don't even know what we are made up of (we don't understand what atoms consist of, as there are way smaller particles with forces that just don't make sense to us), so I don't think we will ever be able to comprehend anything in God's world - he is great, way beyond what we understand in our little worlds...

Read "Rational Spirituality" on the Dhaxem website.
It is the thinking person's "religion". Only conveyed by the Source in February 2006, it alreay changed the lives of many.
It explains the nature of the Objective God that created the Subjective God (the one worshipped by believers), and how this was done, as well as the evolution of the Universe (with the human Soul as part of it).Source(s): http://www.dhaxem.com/

No one dared so far to claim creating, or being able to create, any single thing, even a hair!! The Creator and The Sustainer of all these Creatures is One only; if there were more than one there would have been confusion in the heavens and the earth! That One is Allah (the only true God).
Can we find an explanation of the great universe? Is there any convincing interpretation of the secret of existence? We realize that no family can function properly without a responsible head, that no city can prosperously exist without sound administration, and that no state can survive without a leader of some kind. We also realize that nothing comes into being on its own. Moreover, we observe that the universe exists and functions in the most orderly manner, and that it has survived for hundreds of thousands of years. Can we, then, say that all this is accidental and haphazard? Can we attribute the existence of man and the whole world to mere chance.
In the world then there must be a Great Force in action to keep everything in order. In the beautiful nature there must be a Great Creator who creates the most charming pieces of art and produces everything for a special purpose in life. The deeply enlightened people recognize this creator and call him Allah 'God'. He is not human because no human can create or make another human. He is not an animal nor is He a plant. He is neither an idol nor is He a statue of any kind because none of these things can make itself or create anything else. He is different from all of these things, because He is the maker and keeper of them all. The maker of anything must be different from and greater than the things which he makes.
Imagine yourself in an aeroplane and you know it is
going to crash...
Who do you turn to for help then ?
Or on a ship in the sea, thrown helplessly up and down
by towering waves ...
There will have been a situation at one time or the
other in your life when you called upon your Creator
alone, forgetting everyone and everything else,
hoping, trusting, wishing that the Being you know in
your heart and soul that has power and control over all
things would help you. The only One you know can
Scientists, even though they are able to reproduce human and animal life through artificial processes like in-vitro fertilization and cloning, cannot accomplish these feats without the basic elements of human life that consist of genes and cells and other organic properties. Scientists are not able to create these things. Even the processes that are used by scientists to accomplish various procedures originated from a source whose intellect was obviously far greater than those who seek to discover and imitate the creative processes.
There are various ways to know God "Allah", and there are many things to tell about Him. The great wonders and impressive marvels of the world are like open books in which we can read about Allah. Besides, Allah Himself comes to our aid through the many messengers and revelations He has sent down to man. These messengers and revelations tell us about everything we need to know about Allah.Source(s): For more info http://www.islamdoor.com/ http://www.thetruereligion.org/ BestWishes Your brother in humanity

God as in god in the heavens is a hang up from the old Egyptian polytheistic views that still emanated around during and after Pharaoh Akhenaten came to the throne. The idea that the heavens supported god or the god (or untouchables) could be see from the sky in the form of a star/sun is a notion (at least in part) of the heaven that we see in todays christian culture. Akhenaten is the grandfather of monotheistic religion. This is where god came from, originally.

God creates everyone with a purpose and plans, we're not only a dot among billions of dots. Each of us is unique to Him and He gave His only son to die for us so that we can be saved eternally.
WHether you believe Him or not, it doesn't change His existence and His truth.

god is what it's faithful want it to be. It's the perfect idol. They can carry it, talk to it, offer themselves for judgement, pretend it hears, and pretend to be guided. It has no face or body but its hypothetic son's, has no house but the one people built for it, has no color, race or language but the one people gives to it. No wonder it's uneradicable. You suppress it here and it'll grow stronger there, especially where there is misery. In short: god is a metamorph...

God is our creator.
Lets talk SCIENCE,...there are 2 theories of physics:Quantum(theory for small universe ie atom,electron,neuron,etc)),...and Gravity(theory for big universe,.ie sun,planet,galaxy,etc).
These theory ONLY works for small or big things,....however there is a recent theory called String theory,...that works for small and big UNIVERSE BOTH.
In this theory,...we all are JUST VIBRATIONS(smaal things and big things),....managed/directed by SOMEBODY.
This SOMEBODY is GOD,....
so if u said god is the BIG universe,..then u should have god for small universe,...scientifically....
May GOD bless u,peace.
