"All the complexities of the universe, how could God not exist?" ...?

All the complexities of God, how could God exist?

Who made God? How? Why? Usually I get the answer "He just is". Well faith alone is not good enough. Why would God make humans who know that faith alone is not good enough? Did he not know that "in his own image" creativity, was infact, flawed? Is this the supposed reason for 'free will' and so called 'salvation and faith'? If it is, then heaven will not be crowded!

    Sitting on the edge of a pool and studying water and telling everyone it's not wet is about as ridiculous as it gets. You have to jump in to know how it feels. Most people take the chance because they see others do it and assume they will be OK too. Once you have had a swim it's fine to do some theory but God is a practical subject and not an academic one. If we waited until we understood everything about it before trying it...few people would fly in a plane, drive a car or even make babies...Life is for living not hypothesising!

    Maybe thinking about it like this will help you. Time is a movie reel that is stretched across an empty room. G~d is the director. To him, there is no time; he he can go to the beginning, the middle, or the end and see exactly what has taken place.

    We, on the other hand, are in the movie. We only see what happens as it happens. We do not know anything about what is outside the movie except what the Director has written into the script.

    Now, it is riddiculous to think that a person at a movie would call into question the director's existence. It is silly. If the movie exists, someone had to direct it. Now, we may not know where the director is from or what he looks like or even what kind of person he is, but we accept that there was, in fact, a director.

    The same is true with G~d.

    Except he was not content to leave things that way. He wrote himself into the script so we could actually see what he was like. He didn't answer the questions you asked, so I can't either, but he did clarify a few things.

    First, we were given a choice so that we could love. If you have no alternative, it is impossible to know if you truly love something or if you have just resigned yourself to loving it because there is nothing else available.

    Second, the flaw comes in when we choose not to love, when we wall up and keep people out, when we ignore the suffering of others, when we oppress and abuse each other.

    Third, salvation and faith is what happens when we finally realize that our way of doing things just isn't working. We are messed up and we need G~d to come in and fix the mess we made. We are ready to start loving.

    Finally, heaven may not be crowded with the kind of people you have in mind, but it will be crowded with people who have learned G~d's way of loving. It is definitely going to be a party :-)

    Oh, and you are invited. You will never understand everything about the Director, but you can start by looking at his character and seeing what he intended people to use their free will to accomplish.

    The Universe is too complex to exist from mere Chaos. One scientist described it best with this analogy. Stand on the top of a 5 story building and throw 100 quarters. What are the chances of all 100 quarters landing in a straight line and standing up on their sides?

    Creativity is not flawed, perception is incomplete. One does not say a pie is flawed if it has not been filled, covered in dough and baked in the oven at 425 degrees for 25 minutes (crusty pie). Trying to even eat such a pie would force one to say 'why in the world is anyone calling this good?'

    Doubt and despair are allowed because the things upon which they are based are essentially groundless. It is like playing a game of hide-and-seek. One plays the game knowing that one will 'pretend' the others are lost in order to find them. Are they really lost? To an extent, yes, because you don't immediately know where they are, but ultimately, how can anyone be lost?

    Apples are made for those who like apples, and oranges are made for those who like oranges, and apples and oranges are also for those who like both. To eat an apple is to better understand oneself (do I like this apple, if so, how much do I like it?) but the ultimate worth of the apple is determined by those for whom its lack of existence would create a lack within themselves.

    Do not let the apple-eaters trouble your tree; all fruits, however strange, feed the hunger to which they are meant.

    Your questions are about as informed as a baby still in the womb trying to fiqure out what goes on outside its world of the womb and what its purpose and future will be. So to the earth and this life is as a cradle or womb for the soul and spirit to be. The free will choices of good or evil , blessing or curising, life or death are the simple designers of your eternal state once you leave this womb of mortality and put on immortality. The reality of blindness does not negate the realm of sight.

    of course the existence of the House is proof that a carpenter exists!

    if the existence of the house proves there is a carpenter than the existence of a planet and a galaxy also proves there has to be a CREATOR.

    But who made God, I know who made Jesus. for jesus as part of the godhead declares that HIS god and HIS father made him.

    but who made the FATHER GOD OF FATHER GOD.?

    well i dont think any mortal being can answer that question.

    but that does not automatically negate or nuetralize the existence of God! it only puts off the question until God himself can answer it.

    Chapter : 24 (Al-Nur) Verse : 36

    God is the light of the heavens and the earth. His light is as if there were a lustrous niche, wherein is a lamp. The lamp is inside a glass-globe. The globe is, as it were, a glittering star. The lamp is lit from the oil of a blessed tree -an olive - neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil well-nigh would shine forth even though fire touched it not. Light upon light! Allah guides to His light whomsoever He pleases. And Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah knows all things full well

You are the reasion why men have to eat from the sweat of our brows & keep our day jobs. Thank GOD HE did'nt let you chicks name any of the animals . . .

    Faith is enough for some of us. If it is not enough for you then you don't have to accept it. If you are convinced that God does not exist then that's OK, its just your opinion, we all have ours.
